Hi all

I wonder if someone would be kind enough recommend a version of the needle through arm trick. I know there are several versions out there and would like to see which one people recommend.

Also, is the gimmick the same for all. Or do different versions use different methods?

NOT asking you to actually reveal the gimmick BTW!

Thanks in advance

The Harry Anderson Needle works very well.The gimmick is very simple and the effect looks great.I can't comment on other needles though.

Hi all

I should have said that I have the Dave Powell one myself. So I already know the gimmick for that one. If any others have different gimmicks I would be interested in buying them. But I don't just want to buy one at random just to discover that it is the same gimmick as the one I have.

There is a very convincing version of the paperclip/needle thru arm effect on andrew mayne's shock-fx video. From what I know, most version's use something to this effect. There really is no gimmick at all. just a small amount of preperation. But I can't reccomend getting this video enough. If you are at all into shock magic at all, get the video, there is so much good stuf on there. There is a pencil thru cheek wich I use quite alot on there. I use the paperclip thru arm for special occasions, very grotesque looking, I love it!
