Didn't mean to offend but a Sanada style gimmick is not difficult to ask for at a magic shop, they are as common as a thumb tip. Already gave you the name of it, anymore then I would be giving away exactly what it is. Also I suggested Enigma, that more than anything tells you what kind of gimmick you should be looking for if you want to go that route. I really can't give any more details because that would be total exposure for the workings of Enigma, a marketed effect. It's magicians helping magicians and to be honest, there's no better way for you to expand your own horizons if another magician hints at things and then you going out to do your own research, that's how we magicians learn things. You're very lucky that we now have high speed internet, forums, and video demos and instructions because in the past our art was truly something that one would need to invest some serious research time to.

Use a little neodynium. It costs pennies, hides invisibly under a band-aid or even a piece of clear tape, and is plenty strong. PK rings are ridiculously dangerous to have on you at all times anyway. Just ask your credit card stirp or your computer.

Use a band Aid, that is a very good idea. Thanks, James, for that.

Yes, I'm leaning toward a small neodynium. The only question is whether to affix it to directly my wedding ring or to another finger...it would also be nice if I could ditch it quickly if necessary. Specs can sometimes get, shall we say, aggressively curious about your hands!

Happy and blessed New Year to all.

I just bought this E-book "The Any Ring PK Gimmick" Its really good. He states that his favorite effect to perform is Prohibition.

Hey Kraze:

Looks interesting if a bit cryptic. I was thinking on just slipping the neo beneath my wedding band or hidden in a small bandaid on the third finger. Is the morfin PDF suggesting a way to rig the ring itself?

Thanks,

P

P,

Not the ring its self. I will be using Morfin technique its easy and cheap. Plus if someone wants to see your ring they can. The band-aid idea is good but are you willing to wear a band-aid every time you perform.

I've been using a m++++t under a band-aid for years. Works every bit as well as a PK ring, and in some ways is better--you don't get fokrs clinging to the wrong side of your hand, if you know what I mean! I've experimented with the Sanada in this regard as well, and while it works beautifully for some things, I'm not sure I'd trust it with Prohibition--and I'm a big Sanada Gimick fan,as anyone familiar with my work knows!

Having said that, the effect can be done easily enough without a m++++t at all; it's just that's its a bit easier with one.

With all the cap in bottle talk lately, I re-watched the DVD Prohibition by Charlie Justice. The live, multi-performances, by Charlie really show the power of this effect.

I'm glad I watched this as there was a subtlety that Charlie does that I forgot about and will now use it.

I say, if you can, get all the methods out there.

I just performed Prohibition in a casual setting after not doing it for a long while. It's like riding a bike. It went over great...the best cap in bottle around.

Does anyone still performs this effect after the exposure of the masked magician?


Thank you, Patrick. I'm glad you brought this up. Prohibition has been one of my greatest "enders", without a doubt. Imagine my chagrin, when a group called me on it, and exposed it right there. Average "joes" who wouldn't ordinarily know magic secrets.

"Yup, saw it on the Secrets Exposed Show th'other night..."

Well then. Guess I can't show that one at that location again. Or in front of any of those people and their friends! Great. Well, I've got other stuff the ol' Masko HASN'T exposed!

It IS too bad we have to deal with this kind of thing in our day and age. But, the happy thing is, just wait a while. People DO forget, and in five years or so, Prohibition will be once again, performable!

I wasn't aware that this trick was exposed on television... this is a shame.

Regardless, Prohibition is my favorite trick to perform. Even when I "goofed up" the trick before, no one can catch what has happened and they are still baffled. All eyes are on the cap that made it inside the bottle!

Loved it and was the only way I did this effect, but I kept breaking the other think needed. (WIZARD) so stopped doing it.
