Hello All,

As I mentioned before, I recently acquired a few Bazar De Magia Products that I feel deserves to be mentioned. The best part is these tricks do not cost a lot of money yet are very high in quality and fun to perform. With all of my reviews they are very honest and to the point. Feel free to pm me if needed.

Needle Thru Balloon Professional (with 10 clear balloons) by Bazar de Magia
http://www.penguinmagic.com/product.php?ID=S12371

Here’s another classic that I was curious as to why it was the “professional”? There is nothing different here in terms of performing the actual effect. What I can say is the needle is very well made. It’s heavier than the standard needle and is slightly thicker than the one I own. It just appears meaner looking! I cannot really say why though! The design is identical just looks and feels heavier and sturdier.

The one thing that I have noticed with this needle over the standard one I use is once the balloon is pierced it appears that there is MINIMAL leak from the balloon. I am very pleased by this. The needle I have used in the past never fully sealed the balloon so you got the incredible shrinking balloon effect that is pierced through a needle! This one pierces the balloon, you can hold the needle in the balloon for a little bit, pass it through the balloon, then the balloon still appears to fully blown up before you do the final pop.

I do admit that I have swapped out my other needle for this one. Well done, Bazar de Nagia!

I love the sturdiness of the needle. To me, it lends to the impossible. How does it not pop the balloon? I must also confess I love using it for other needle through effects as well. GREAT JOB!!!!

There should be "no leak" of air, not minimal leak!

Mike,
Does the "slightly thicker" needle still fit in the wand you can purchase for storage or is it too thick?

Thanks,
Wolly

If it is too thick, just ream out the cork to fit it.
