I don't use it because the angels aren't all that swell. Seems to be only good for 1-2 spectators, I've gotten away with 3. So I don't use it often. But when I do it for a couple people, watch the jaws drop.

never used it - does not fit my dressing style. Probably I wouldn't use it anyway!

Can't you be surrounded in ZG? I know you have to tear a pair of shoes up and they are well known so they will be expensive. Then I hear the gimmick is a pain to build and it's expensive. You don't get very high also, maybe 2-4 inches

Completely agreeing that, it's a bit expensive for a kind of illusion which can be made easier and better (for certain reasons). Of course in certain conditions for some person it could be a great trick, but for me I prefer to stick with Balbucci levitation.

I don't have the shoes for it.. lol. I believe that Balducci and King's Rising are better too.

djvirtualreality,

- you can't be surrounded
- the shoes are not expensive
- the gimmick is indeed a pain to build
- the gimmick is not expensive
- the height is the same as the Balducci

They advertised you can be surrounded.

I have seen it done surrounded and in fact it probably looks better when you are, for two reasons... The first is that, everone knows you are surrounded and making all that better of a levitation... Second it helps to hide the works from people in the distance.

It can be done surrounded. The spectators must make a tight circle around you however.

I used to use it a while ago. As said above, it can be done surrounded if you position the spectators correctly. It fits me well because I already wear converse a lot.(And it does not have to be converse, you can make it with most shoes) But it really just doesn't compete with the Elevator in my opinion. Still a good levitation if you wanna spend the time making the gimmick.

Same here, but a way to get specs in a tight circle would be to say "Come close and focus your mental energy on me." and other stuff like that.

I personaly, have never bought a levitation, but I was thinking about maby getting the king rising.
i dont call 911, i simpily perform the bullet catch and than point the bullet at them and ask if they care to try.

King rising is better, and the zero gravity in my opinion is not that great. You have more restrictions and less impromptu ability to perform it. The king is the best bare levitation. I thin the elevator is probably the best.

Zero Gravity is far to impractical... and the shoes would be a pain to wear constantly...

Moreover, many times after I do the balducci, I am asked to show the bottoms of my feet... if you use Zero Gravity you are busted...

You guys still get away with the Balducci? Everybody knows how that works. They may not tell you but they know. Just go around asking random people how David Blaine levitated. Ask them to show you. 5 out of 10 people can explain it and some people will turn around and do it.

Am I the only one that believes this?

I gree, Here in Brasil is the same, I can't get awy with the balducci, king rising is better, but I've never did it, I guess you can do on stage, but to your friens I don't think it will work.
