Ok, I just ordered! All the hype made me do it!

AND...get this, you also get a free underwater fire prevention kit with each order of the illusion! It is supposed to be just as useful as this illusion!

I'm off to practice!

Best,

Paul h.

If it is just a kit with the gimmick, I assume you have to make the necessary alterations in your own shoes to properly install it. My concern with any self-levivation gimmick that is inserted within a specially altered and prepared shoe such as Floatease II as opposed to an external device that can be used with any, unprepared shoes such as Elevator 1 and 2, is that the altered shoes cannot be worn for everyday walking. Therefore you must carry a similar pair of ungimmicked shoes to be worn prior to doing the levitation and/or to change back into after the levitation is accomplished so that you can walk around normally.

I have yet to see a levitation system that is built into the shoe itself as being practical. I personally prefer either the self-contained, anywhere, no gimmick required Balducci levitation or the external method by Elevator 1 and/or 2. I would like to hear the reviews of people who receive this effect.

Best regards,


Michael

You can use your own shoes and walk comfortably in them for several hours. The rise you get with this effect beats E2. Many will be selling their E2 after seeing this performed.

Who said anything about shoes?

This levitation can be performed barefoot! It can even be performed in shorts.

I think you may be assuming too much... see http://www.ultimatelevitation.info

I just ordered the Levitation as well. Sounds incredible. But I'm actually more excited about the Ultimate Vanish which will be released in November. I know someone who witnessed the performance that Copperfeld saw in Vegas, and apparently the effect is beyond belief.

MAN! It works on DOGS also! I went nuts when I found out. You have to have a really Friendly dog to do this, since the gimmicks hooks around, ... sorry. I forgot that I wasn't in the Secret Section of the Café. I almost gave the workings away.

This is without a doubt the best levitation I have even seen. I wish that I have thought of this! So simple but right on target!

The very FIRST thing I thought of when reading this..."remember what day this is!!!" But not sure somebody would go to the trouble of making a site like that just for a good "April Fool!!!!"

Still I emailed the answer that'll get me in the magicians section!!

Thanks for the tip on the discount Hawk, I missed that.

I'm so excited about this that I'm going to buy an E2 today, just so I can sell it!

Okay...one more thing...as Columbo would say....

The "effect" is that he stands there with people about 10ft away...and raises "....one FOOT from the ground..." .

Why do I see a video in my mind of a guy lifting ONE FOOT off the ground while still standing on the other????

I really HOPE I'm wrong about this but I'll be very surprised if this isn't an April Fool set up.

Sorry about 3 "negitive" posts in a row....but it IS "too good to be true" and it IS April 1st!!

The ad states that the plans and theory is public domain. So you are paying $950.00 for a previously released and known theory and plan. You must be kidding! Before I spend this kind of money, I would first want a very detailed and well thought out review by a performer who is totally independent and not in anyway asociated with the manufacturer of this "public domain" effect.

As I have been involved with the creation of the commercial version of "TUL" I just wanted to address some questions...

1) The dark spot under the performers foot in the full body photograph is NOT anything more than a shadow...I PROMISE!!! When you get the full overview or the plans, you will see this to be SO true...you'll laugh outloud.

2) You do seem as clean as it describes, no exaggeration.

4) Latto HAS performed this for years and I have also had inumerous goes with it. It is robust enough for me! I am a BIG guy and mine is holding up (no pun intended) just fine...obviously the system you can purchase comes with a warranty, but you should have no trouble making a strong system from the VERY detailed plans.

I hope that helps,

The "magicians only" section is very informative. Once you read the information provided, you will definitely laugh out loud as to the simplicity of the gimmick. If done properly, the gimmick is invisible. Tom, you have outdone yourself with this one.
