Hi guys! Three quick questions about Prohibition before I purchase (Jeff??):

1. Is the cap ending up in the bottle bent?? (ie. would it normally fit through the mouth of the bottle??)...probably an obvious question...sorry!

2. Do I require any additional parts that I need to order with the dvd?? (it's a wild guess, and I'm probably very wrong, but magnets is my thinking...) and

3. how difficult is it to perform (ie how much practice does it require).

Thanks a lot.
Constantine.

Constantine, pegasus has answered your questions above. Yes the cap is bent but it really does not matter. Charlie tells you a way to do it unbent. Supermagnetman.net has pk rings for $8.00
Ittakes a little practice but it's not that hard, you should have it in no time.

BTW you can order the digital download from my website and get Charlies Coin in bottle routine for free.

Thanks for the replies Pegasus. Very helpful.
A quick question and a quick remark though:
1. I looked up at PK rings and are either gold or silver and vary a little in diameter. Does it matter which one I go for?? Does one make more easy to do tricks than the other??

2. My remark is that when performing to close friends and family, the fact that you're wearing a new ring may draw some attention.... just a thought.

Thanks again,
Constantine.

Prohibition is the BEST cap in bottle effect that was ever created hands down

Okay, I love the look of Probihition from the DVD I now own. Will be practicing much 'til she's show ready. But....not to expose...but it seems that the spousal gimmick is realistically the only way the effect is going to work cleanly and consistently. Charlie suggests using rather small ******s as an alternative, but I have grave doubts. They seem too awkward and ungainly or just plain not strong enough to pull off the trick correctly. Am I wrong?

I agree the spousal gimmick, as you call it, is the only way to perform this effect. Just keep it in your pocket until you are ready to go, like me.

I thought so, Pegasus. The DVD is a bit misleading on this point. I can't imagine having any confidence doing it without the PK. It looks like it's worth the extra $ though. Anyone else have a thought on using small m*****s for Prohibition?

The "spousale gimmick," why would you keep it in your pocket until ready to go Pegasus? I have mines on all the time, no point in putting it on just for the effect since it has so many other uses. Using a small whatchamacallit works by the way, you just have to be a bit more mindful as to not flashing it.

My biggest problem is all my friends and family know I don't have a Spouse

LoL, I don't usually perform for friends and family so I'm safe Smile Plus putting on the ring just for the effect while performing for friends and family is a big no no. They pick up on these kind of things. Best to give them a few days of getting use to adorning the "spousal gimmick" before you perform Prohibition as that will condition them to see everything as being normal.

Sterling currency now contains M******C coins so I have to be careful. There are too many items that are attracted to the gimmick for me to wear it all the time, IMO anyway.

There's no way I'd don a PK 24/7. Too much ongoing PK trouble, know what I mean? I'm also on teh ADD side and can easily see the risk of losing my real spousal gimmick, in which case my real spouse would be (koff koff) less than ecstatic.

I'm thinking the only way to do this cleanly is to rehearse it using my non-spousal gimmick hand to hold the bottle. I have a hard time believing a small whatchamacallit would work well in the real world. Not just because of the flashing risk but also the small size risk. Unless I'm way off here, it'd have to be an ultra super powerful gimmick to do what it needs to do.

The non-spousal hand is where I have the spousal whatchamacallit. Smile I've tried the the sanada style whatchamacallit and I can assure you, it works well, but since I have a spousal one, I wear that. I am happy to say that PK trouble has not occurred. Real way to cause PK trouble would more likely occur if you keep the gimmick in your pocket where it's likely to rub up against things that you don't want it to rub up against, this causing PK trouble. I learned and also perform Prohibition with my non-spousal hand.

Kissadoo:

Sanada style? Can you PM on what this is?

Thanks!

No need for ring. You can use a band-aid to tape on a tiny 30˘ ****** gimmick. Works perfectly.

Thanks, James. My only concern is with strength of a 30 center. But I'll experiment. Kissadoo: I thought the Café was magicians *helping* magicians. Surely a quick PM would've been just as fast as sending me to do research.
