Anyone have any suggestion besides using silks in the cane?

There is a device made of aluminum which is about 1 foot and a half long.......on top is a chamber which holds cotton...the other end has a fitting which can be attached to the part where you usually place the vanishing silk.

Drench it with Ronsonal or similiar lighter fluid and light it up.........Step out into performance area with the torch....and smartly release the end to produce the metal cane.....(cannot use plastic ones with this)

In essence Vanish the Torch, Produce the Cane.

I don't use a cane. I think too many magicians use them. And Unless you use it in a highly original manor then I think it undermines our ultimate aim : To be different.
Just my thoughts.

Best wishes.

I’ve got the Flash adapter for the cane, which is a metal cap with a flint wheel soldered on which is then loaded with flash paper or cotton and some sparkling additive. Looks good and acts as misdirection while the cane vanishes.

I’m looking for something to vanish it into besides silks.

Thanks!

I started a post a while ago on what you can vanish in an appearing cane, so I'm sure you will also be able to produce them , take a look:

I would go with fantasio vanishing canes. I would never use a metal vanishing cane as to me they are much to dangerous and have the habit of slicing up the hands when they collaspe. A nice Fantasio will work wonders for you every time and not cause any accidents to your health.

Markis,

Another method is to use feathered flowers.

Cane to a nice welcome silk works very nicely as does cane to a nice cane plume. If your going to do cane to silk. Wrap up the silk with some confetti for a really nice sparkle.

The Fantasio lecture tapes at the magic castle are really great to have and he covers off a lot on the cane and methods. It may help you.

Fantasio seems to be the way to go, but I find they visually wobble and look flimsey and I don't like it when either kind is shown with the open end facing the audience.

The funniest effect (LOAD) I saw using a cane was to ask your assistant for a Magic Wand and they bring you a Cane instead.

You can act disappointed and then change the Cane to a Wand as your load. Use the wand for your effect and then put it down.

It made perfect sense to me. You now have a reason for having a cane in your act, plus a good reason for ditching it, as it wasn't what you needed.

Then at the end, you could always switch them out and change your new Wand to a Cane to exit in style.

Glen:
That is a nice way to have a theme in the act and give a nice reason for using it as well. Thanks.

I agree that Fantasio is the bast out there for the price. You can't beat the canes and candles for about $25.00 each. Good deal.
