Hello

I have an older Abbott's golf ball stand and I am not sure the golf balls look very realistic. What are other brands that I should consider and where can they be found. Would prefer a golf ball stand, but if not a billard ball stand would have to work.

Thanks and have a nice day,

Walking Bob in Iowa

P.S. Also what are good book and dvd sources for methods and routines?

I don't know of very many makers of this piece of equipment, but you can check Owen's, as I know they make a nice model.

Unless they are really bad, I think they would fly right past most audiences. Can you replace the existing golf balls with others that look better?

I made a billiard ball stand, and could probably make a golf ball stand too, but it would be a custom order and may take some time to do. I may also be able to replace the balls on yours with better ones if you don't want to do the work yourself. PM me and we can talk, if you wish.

Here is the one I made for myself. http://themagiccompany.com/ball_stand.jpg

I have this one http://img146.imageshack.us/my.php?image=stativbigss8.jpg , it was produced in the Czech Republic and it was expensive but it is well worth the price!

Matej, that is one beautiful piece of equipment. You should be proud to own and I hope you use it.

It appears to be the same one that Viking was selling. It looks great! http://www.vikingmagic.com/?nd=full&key=784

Yes they must have ordered it from the Czech Republic, yes I am using it and it is very nice!! If someone is interested in buying this let me know, I can get it for you, because I highly doubt that you can purchase it in online shops....

It would be funny as .hell. to have one that would drop one ball when you put another in. a great running gag. then by secretly flicking something on the back all the balls would fall out when you're just about to take your bow.

That is funny, Frank. I can see waiting until you are putting in the last ball. It goes in, one pops out. Put that one back in and a different one pops out. Continue this with a random pattern (oxymoron) until all balls are finally in their places. Take a deep breath, and POW!... all the balls pop out. Very funny!!
