Anyone has this?

I am rather interested in his complete Act which retails at $1,225.

Please let me know if it is as amazing as marketed/claimed.

Thanks. Smile

I know Sean and have seen his award winning act, in various stages of development. It is the most practical dancing hank act that I've ever seen. He has even performed a version of it in living rooms!

Angle problems would be one reservation. The audience must be in front of you, not to your sides. You must also take care not to drop the electronic devices onto a hard surface. Any electronic device can be damaged that way.

If he says that the act is good for a certain set of conditions, you can believe it!

I have seen this act performed by another magus and I believe it performs very well for children if it is framed correctly. If you choose to get the act I suggest searching carefully for the right music. The act I saw was performed to the pink panther theme and was simply mesmerizing. I hated, and I mean HATED that I had to follow this fellow's act. He simply blew my little few TRICKS out of the water. And this wasn't for a competition. If it had been I would have just refused to compete. It is an excellent act and nearly hypnotizing for the children. If you can afford it and it fits your show, I say get the whole thing. Never know, it may become your new closer.

Thanks for the comments guys.

Any more views out there?

Must this be perform on stage and the audience must not be too close to the performer?

I would only caution that if you have never seen or owned the Ultimate Dancing Hank and are unfamiliar with its performance conditions, that is a lot of mony to spend for something (I realize that it is far more than just the UDH and a routine. You get UDH, Impossible, and Animation and the routine... ) but it has taken me far longer to learn the UDH, than it did to learn the original Don Wayne Dancing Hank. I guess I was a bit naive sinc eI knew the perfromance charastic of teh orignal hand, and it pretty liberal.. Stage/parlor, or closer would work wit that one. So I thought, this was simialr in that way. But I should have known it was totally differnet, and did not.

And although I fully acknowledge the increased value of the improved effect, and I had heard, but didnt really understand the conditions necessary for the performing requirements; Background, lighting, angles, etc. And even a wardrobe modification is required for one of the moves.

Please dont misuderstand me I love the UDH! But just I dont do enough Stage work to keep sharp and do it justice. And I have recently been thinking of selling it along with some of my other stage stuff. I have some things I would never sell under any circusmtance. This is one of those items. I like it but it doesnt work for my venue (Street), and I dont do enough stage.

If you do a lot of stage and are looking for a major componet for your show. This will probably work for you, but like any good effect, it requires practice - and for me at least, it is far more practice than I would have hoped. But if it was easy, everyone would be doing it! So maybe that isnt all bad!

Seeing Sean or any other competent performer do it, is nothing short of amazing - even when you know how it is done! Hwever some routines are all about presentaion, and very little about the mechanics. This is definitely not one of those!

As for where you can do it. You need a stage, but "Impossible Hank", lets you take it (what appears to be the same hank) right out in to the audience. So it is more than the UDH.
