I've been playing around with the Smokey Magic System lately and am finding it difficult to get a nice puff of smoke out of the chemicals that I have. Thoughts on this one anybody?

I like the Ultra Smoke 2000. I;m not familiar with this system.

Are you sure you used black powder with this system?

I own smokey magic, you need to "play" with the exact amounts of the two chemicals. I would try increasing the amount of muratic acid. When I say increase I mean a few drops at a time. Also make sure the stoper is FIRMLY inserted in the brown bottle (both bottles actualy). And make sure your lines are clear, they can be cleaned with water. I hope this helps, but if not I hear you can go to Trever Duffey's web site and e-mail him directly.Everyone says He's very friendly and will help you with any problems.

The only secret is: get the 'strongest' chemicals you can.

I use only 1ml (sometimes 1,5ml) or muricatic (and 1ml of amonia), I get smoke for hours and hours.

Also, DON'T put use a lot of cotton, just a small piece for the bottle (another for pump of course).

I've found one more thing. You have to wait a little bit between puffs. When you're practicing you want to use it several times in a row and it produces a weak smoke. In real performance you actually have to wait a while between each puff just because you will probably use it only once per group of spectators, and this gives the chemicals time to get a more dense puff of smoke together.
