I've seen this costly trick (or effect enhancement utility) advertised, but want to talk to someone who has it or has seen it before purchasing. It's a big investment, so I'd like to find out some of the pro's and con's. Are there any limitations as to where you can perform it? Is it pretty much 100% reliable. Can I use it indoors or outdoors. Any requirements for it to work besides let's say good batteries?

Not to sound trite but try the search function. I believe this trick has been discussed in more depth then any other in the history of the board.

I was just wondering what other effects are possible thru electric touch. I heard that you could light a zippo lighter with the gimmick.

It's only limited my your creativity. I love my 4 to death and often use it in my street and strolling performances. Yes, I own 4 of them just in case 1 should breakdown. I wear mine almost daily. It as with anything else in magic is a love/hate thing. I love Yigal's Electric Touch. Some people are gonna tell you it's not that good or not good at all or even worse. When it comes to any effect I'm a strong believer in it's 99% performance, presentation, ability and 1% method, sleight, gaff or gimmick. Hence there is very little bad magic but tons of poor ability, creativity, and willingness to apply. You know what type of effects you like to do and want to do. No one know's better your performing style than you. Oh all this rambling I almost forgot to answer your questions. Yes ET works great indoors and outdoors. You will find that depending on you surrounding's it will work too good. Yes it is reliable so far 100%. Mine has seen over 120 days of good use only had to change the batt's. Which by the way are not expensive a pack of 4 batteries $4.00. I saw about 10 days of use before I had to swap out batteries. ( a lil advice take the batties out when storing your ET they will last longer ). You will have to do some set up but its nothing major it only takes a few minutes. I think you will be happy with your purchase.

Later, Anton

I really appreciate your feed back guys. I've bought a lot of junk over the years and hate to get burned- I should say shocked. I'll be glad share any ideas I come up with for uses in effects etc. I perform 2-3 times a week in restaurants and get dozens of opportunities to experiment with such things. Again, thanks and I'll return the favor.

There is a website devoted to its uses, with many great suggestions for setup and play. You'll probably get the reference when you buy it.

I just received mine a few days ago. It's actually very clever and it actually does work on carpet. The device is expensive and you may want to make an investment in the way you install it. For me, that was an additional $95 (although you can probably have it done for less).

Overall, I imagine I'll use this on a regular basis.

I actually did go with a pro setup. It looks great but I clearly paid for it. That said, if you're using this on a regular basis it's probably worth the investment.

I'm in LA, so not a lot of humidity. I haven't had any issues with mine. I have found that one of the suggestions about water really helps to improve the effect.

Yes, but, if you get others touching the tree at the same time and saying something about feeling the life force of the tree you will freak them out when they do feel it.
