I'm going to bet that this is what we call malted milk balls: chocolate covered malted milk candy balls.

You are correct Gianni. The balls are larger than a standard marbel. The whole effect easily fits in your pocket and would be suitable for closeup, parlor or stage. I've been driving everyone crazy today with this.

Prince, Chris, Mystification, and Paul:

Thank you for your responses to my query regarding size!

I get the idea. I grew up on "Malted Milk Balls"--but those were the days when I could go to the movies and see a double-feature for 14 cents, buy the candy for a dime, and still have a penny left over from my 25 cent allowance!!

This is being a very clever methods that uses no magnets, no electrics, no threads or strings, no sounds, no sleights of hands, no dropping a extra ball halfway through and no colours of glowing balls or anything like that.

The spectators doing the routine with you will never be finding out the secret even if they are talking to each other afterwards.


Even with the "sack jiggling" (LOL), there are at least two other methods I have thought of that will work without the use of magnets or the other methods Juan mentioned.

My question, for those who know the method for Oddball, is:
Do you need to hold onto the bag at any time during the selection process?
For me, that is the litmus test.

Arnon,

that's a good question! If you can do this without holding the bag, it is a miracle! I for one would be interested in this if that is possible!

No, you do not need to hold the bag. If you wanted, you can pull the draw string bag closed and toss it out into the audince, which is in fact what I did the last time I performed. If anyone who has this doesn't know how they can do this, PM me

NOW, I'm interested! I have a presentation for kurotsuke (different method, as I also don't like having to take a chance that the first spectator chosen will actually have the black ball) that involves performing it one time right after another, the first time a sucker presentation where you expose the method (no magical secrets really exposed, so no flaming, please) - can this be repeated immediately? Thanks -

Bill

Chris, I know what you meant but what I was talking about was over all, is this a great effect that every performer should own?

Sorry Paisa, I was replying to Bill's post. No, not every performer should own this, as not every owner will like it, use it, present it right etc. Some people will buy it and not like it. Others will buy it and love it and use it. Again, its a marmite effect. Love it or hate it. It works for me, I might not work for anyone else

I have a question about Oddball. I have just purchesed it and think it's a great effect, however, I have a question about the workings of it. Obviously, I can't go into the workings on here so......is there anyone on here that uses Oddball that can PM me please.

Much appreciated.

Mmmm. I really don't like giving reveiws, one mans poison etc. I have this and I have to say that the subtlety is just a little too subtle for me. I just can't get the 'difference' (those who own it will know what I mean). Will I use it? Absolutley. The principle involved is IMO brilliant and well worth the money. This could have been dressed up with a lengthy presentation and sold as a PDF for more than the current asking price and I would still be extreamly happy with my purchase. Hats off to Marc, I would have kept it to myself. Christopher I have pm'd you, sound interesting.

A bit too subtle, huh? Hmmmmm...would you say it's too subtle in a way that could cause the performer to blow the effect? One poster on here indicated they felt it was impossible to mess up. What's your take?

Does the bag need to be handled by the performer? and can everything be examined, as when I've performed Max's version people have made assumptions, right or wrong, so this does sound like an excellent improvment!

Best wishes,
Col
