So I have been using a Penguin wand for about a year now..
But I decided it was time for an up grade so I bought a wand from Tabmans.

So here is the thing.. I got the 12 inch wand. The Penguin wand I have is 14 inches.

Well the tabmans wand seem tiny to me. I wonder if this is because I am used to a larger wand.. Or because a 12 inch wand is relativly small. I don't want to go out and buy another wand. just because I'm not acustomed to it yet.

What size wand do some of you use? I guess I'm looking for a regualtion wand size.
(if there is such a thing)

Thank you.

Shawn.

I applaud your decision to upgrade from a cheap mass-produced wand to something made with some love.

You will probably end up with several wands in the end and use them for whatever they do best. No kidding.

There's no regulation size. Cellini uses a 12 inch wand.
Porper's makes them about 15 inches.

A 12" wand is great for doing the flip-stick move.

Size does matter!
The magician with the biggest wand win's! (Just kidding)


Get the wand that feels best for what you want to use it for. I like a larger heaver wand for spinning.

I agree with Frank that you will probably end up with several different size wands.

It is not the size of the wand, it is the magic in it.

If you are somewhat decent at wood working you can go to a home improvement store and buy a wood dowel and create your own wand... I don't see the reason to spend 100.00 or more on a magic wand that don't do any magic... certainly the spectator could care less what kind of wand you have.

Thanks for a good laugh "a regulation size want" is a funny concept. I suggest you try a "big league" wand wand. I have several other magic wand suggestions that I will only share with my wife.
GOOD QUESTION
