I like Rabbit in a Hat paddle, but in the end the rabbit disappears from the paddle and appears in my hand (a sponge rabbit).

Color Changing Knives - there are several versions, all good. One of the best kept secrets in magic is the Stanfield Knife Routine. It has a surprise ending that makes sense and looks great!

Bob Lodz has a good routine in print...

Ron Bauer has a one knife routine that is superb...

There are all the routines in Jose DeLa Torres Amazing World of Knives...

The Merrill material in the Merrill Knife Book...

Dr. Sacks Dice Routine, the original, from the Bruce Elliott Book, Classic Secrets of Magic (originally in the Phoenix Magazine), or the revised version by Stewart Judah, in Pallbearers Review, followed by the Vernon Dice Climax, from the Dai Vernon Book of Magic...

Best, PSC

I just bought the video on Dr. Sacks routine, and I found the move to be surprisingly easy to learn (once I grasped what heck he was showing, as I still could hardly see the move!!!). Very visual!! I can tell it's going to be one of my favorite close-up routines. I believe it does beat the Color Changing Knives. Smile

I have to admit, Shattered looks *REALLY* good. Wish I could see a demo of the Dice stuff to get an idea of what it's like.

I have the dream paddle but I think I prefer the changing color knives. There is something about using everyday objects that adds to the mystery.

Is Sack's routine the same as the one used in Ivory Connection by Reed McClintock. There is a demo of this at http://www.magicproshop.com

Anyone doing Mark Brandyberry "Booze and Caffeine Detector" out of "Magic Man Examiner" #4.? This reads like a winner to me.

What about moonspinner?? the one that looks like a hypno paddle with an optical illusion of a coin materialising.. you guess it, then you produce the real thing.

What was the mystic ruby like?? I use to work at a specialist tenyo magic store and never heard about that, is it quite old? At that time the store only carried the new items.

There is an impromptu paddle move trick in Sack's book "Sleight of Hand" that uses a butter knife and a few pieces of wet paper. It may well be the best paddle trick in existence...and nobody uses it. John Carney has his take on it in his new "Book of Secrets".

I like to do a routine similar to No 2 pencil, but with a bic or similar ball point pen. I remove the cap and go into a routine showing the writing, wiping it off, etc. etc. and then move into recap. I only do this as an intro because I can not do the spin like Greegory Wilson, so it gives me an excuse to remove the cap and I find it adds a lot to the effect. Does anyone else do this?

That's a good idea Ed, I can't spin the pen either.

Sean,
Brandyberry's effect is great. I don't use cigarettes though. So I bought Joe Porper's Hotrod paddle. Same effect, very nice prop and can be examined. One of the few "proppy" things I carry with me in case I have to "show something"...

I think shattered is a fantastic effect, but have actually strayed away from it because many I know use it and I just don't feel like doing it as well.
I still use my "No. 2 Pencil" and it was really the first real effect I used in my walk-around with the paddle move. I never enjoyed the hot rod but I think some great things could be done with it. just a little imagination.

You're technically right...no one MENTIONED this one. But if you look back at the beginning of this thread, you will see that it HAS been referenced to. Smile

(I'll give you a hint..... it MAY a favorite of Pete Biro, but he ain't talkin)

PS Where did you get your chalk paddle for this? I've found they're kind of hard to find these days.

"I'll Start Again" is a paddle routine that uses a blank, black paddle. I think it's from England, they refer to the paddle as a "bat" on occassion and it [does] look rather like a cricket bat.

The routine is that you draw three lines on each side of the paddle and anything you do to one side, happens to the other side as well. finally at the end you show the paddle blank on both sides but comment that a trick like this needs a killer line to finish off on and this trick [has] a killer line.

You turn the paddle over and now there's a line running along the [length] of the paddle. In fact there's two. (paddle move) and they say "Applause Please" and (flip) "Thank You".

I missed Pete's reference to it on his post. My bad. When I ordered the effect from Tannen's, they sent the paddle with it. (I did have to buy chalk though... three boxes of chalk for a dollar at the dollar store took care of that!)

I first saw Ed Sparrow perform "I'll Start Again" close to 30 years ago. Does anyone else know Ed? Now THERE'S a character.
