The thing about our friend Ba Ba is that his English is very weak and his temper is very strong, when he is challenged. But he gets over it. I have bought no tapes or dvds from him, but my first purchase of apparatus (quite a while ago) started off badly. It was a very complex mentalism routine at a great price and took quite a while to understand (and to register with the inventor). Plus I was out of town frequently at the time. First thing I know, Ba Ba is dogging me about not giving quick feedback, and saying he will "block me" from buying if I don't give him good feedback! This astonishes me, so I tell him to chill. And he says, "ok take your time". I finally checked out the trick, and everything was fine, so I happily gave him good feedback.

Since then, I have bought many things from Ba Ba and have had no trouble ... he has even refunded me money (unasked) when I had a minor problem with instructions. I believe Ba Ba is a quirky but honest guy who needs translation help and anger management counseling more than anything. I have found that a respectful and honest(and sometimes even joking)inquiry will usually get a good response from him. This has been my experience to date. I have had worse experience with well known guys in the business who turn out to be real schnozzers.

I am very careful when buying on eBay. I question EVERYTHING. I've never had a bad response from anyone. If I did, that would be the last correspondence from me.

I only buy magic from reputable dealers, such as Penguin or Ellusionist. I usually buy from them, because I know who I'm dealing with. Superb service from both. Also, Silk King Studios, because I KNOW the Rice name. Ruth is one of the most generous, and helpful people in the business.

Since the Brick & Mortar shop is becoming less popular, there are NONE in Maine that I know of...I have to resort to the internet. eBay is great for what it is. Ya just have to be CAREFUL!

I love the Chinese people. But, I try to avoid anything MADE in China if I can help it. I could write a small book on that subject alone.

Respectfully,
Doug

Like I said, he was selling genuine items, however he was also purchasing in bulk from the Chinese counterfeiters as was clear from his feedback and reselling counterfeits which is not acceptable.

Either way, eBay have removed him as a seller!

Ok, Just wandering if anyone here has bought from China Magic 52magic.com ?
There is lots of discussuion, going pro and con from buying in China, I am just wondering if anyone has direct experience from this company. They require full prepay! Seems odd that they wont take pay pay or credit cards. doesn't it?
