Hey guys, just wondering what you all think of the trick 'Bye George'. It looks really cool and super clean... Let me know your thoughts on this effect.
Thanks

Gee, everywhere I look, it is out of stock, if it is the one by Howard Baltus and Al Lagomarsino.

It is so so, I was not blown away by the presentation of the video.

The routine actually plays extremely well. I use it all the time and it gets great reactions! The routine itself is not difficult to perform and it really depends on your presentation skills more than anything else. It is also a staged effect, meaning any of the three phases can be performed by themselves as one effect or as part of another, or you can mix and match them with other routines.

Hank Lee and Tannen Magic should still have it. Highly recommended!

A nice routine, but more for a sitting down situation.

That is true if you are performing the whole routine the way it was originally conceived. However if you have a portable case/table top, you can actually perform the whole thing standing up too, with or without a close-up mat. Also, if you are not performing the entire effect and only using parts of it, none of them actually require you to be sitting down.

But yes, I agree with motown, this is rather well suited to a formal sit-down performance situation because of its intended pace. It is meant to be an easy-going, mysterious manipulation sequence and not a high-powered, flashy production effect.
