I am just curious since I like universal gimmicks where I can come up with my own
tricks, whats everyone's favorite magic gimmick or accessory?

Mine is the thumbtip, followed very closely by a pull I use all the time as a vanisher.

I like my raven very much, but I have to say my new favorite gimmick right now is the expanded shell. That is the result of going to David Roth's lecture however. You can't go to that lecture and not want an expanded shell.

Well I'm not big on gimmicks. But if I have to pick one it would be my F******Coin.

Mine is the topit. It can be used for some great vanishes/changes and also for ditching other gimmicks.

Spider pen is a great creation or any type of IT for levitations or animations.

I'm going to have to go with:

Thumbtip.
Folding Canadian Looney
The Raven
and I.T.

Although these are very common gimmicks, they can all be very versitile. The only item on that list with less uses would be the Looney....BUT....The one I picked up just looks so darn good! I can't help but love the thing!

The trusty Magic Wand is great accessory. Pick it up or set it down to cover that ditch or steal...use it to make that palming hand look natural... or use it to help with attention direction (point it!)...also, is easily gimmicked to be made extra magical Smileor can be manipulated itself (flpstik etc.) Gotta luv it.

I just bring my IET (Clear) around my wrist or store it in my wallet and a Thumb tip in my pocket wherever I go.

Theres this great little thing for sale, Its basically a skin tone tube with a T shape soldered on to the exterior. One end is closed. It lets you bak palm silks so you can produce them from stabbing a hhole in newspaper or even produce them from nowhere. You can make it alone for about $2 or pay $20 for the same thing marketed as Silks from Newspaper.

I have a pretty good time with subterfuge...if the conditions right. otherwise I love a combo fl****r coin and a shell together. many possibilities.

Because making something disappear isn't enough; you have to bring it back. That's why every magic trick has a third act, the hardest part, the part we call "The Prestige".

I can't believe no one has mentioned the PK Ring! I never leave home without one. The TT is a very close second.
