For anyone joining the insidious lecture on friday, I have been twisting Rus arm, and if there is time he might give an impromptu performance. please don't hold him to it, there is a lot of other stuff to get through.

No offense but it's all been done before, check out the Provisions disk of Prohibition for a way to put a signed cap into a bottle using only one cap and one bottle. Even after 8 years and numerous copycats, Prohibition is still the best cap in bottle and has been used by more magicians than any other.

Hey Jeff

Prohibition is a brilliant effect and I myself have been using it for years, I have just strived to place my take on classic plots using my own unique style and approach.

I do agree it is one of the best and a bench mark in this type of effect, I say one as many versions of this are great, including captured by Justin miller and trapped by Jordan Johnson.

Best

Just watched the live performance of Captivated filmed in a bar in the UK. The folks went nuts for it and obviously enjoyed the performance.

This was the impromptu performance and it did have a strong wiff of Prohibition about it. Rus did also mention that the gimmicked version uses a well know and old principle, can be set up so its good to go for 'anytime' use and is totally invisible and leaves you clean at the end.

This does sound interesting, can't wait to see this one in action.

Thanks bond19 glad you like it.

Also just a small point the cap in bottle idea I'm pretty sure was released earlier than prohibition on the wizard p* r**g DVD way back by costas? So this shows that this plot has been played with numerous times through the years.

All the best

The bigger point is that the use of the required item for most cap in bottle routines goes back to the first routines and the Wizards P* R**g DVD (2007) came out much later than Prohibition (2004). The Cap Trap move devised by Charlie Justice and used in Prohibition had never been done before.

Feel free to post the performance video others are talking about so we all can see how different it is.

Hi

As mentioned before this is a project I am still currently working, so is not complete as of yet, as soon as I am satisfied with my work I will post a proper demo video for all to see.

I'm not a copycat, I just enjoy putting my touch on great plots as was done with prohibition.

All the best

I will be very surprised if this is not very very similar to Justin and Charlies effects . A slight tweak at the very best , I hope its more different and better ( if that's possible of course ) !

Is that all you have to do nowadays? Just add your personal touch to someone elses creation and call it your own? I'm not being rude, just asking to understand this better. You are not claiming anything is new. You are admitting that you like taking tricks and adding your own touch to them. Isn't that what we are all supposed to do with a trick someone else created? Maybe I'm wrong, that's why I am asking.

Will there be new moves involved with this, or new handlings that are indeed an improvememnt and not just an alternative. If it's not finished yet, and it still needs tweeking, then why are we talking about this. It doesn't even exist yet. (lol)

I am pretty sure I just read that Rus enjoys putting his own touch on great plots. But you are right GaryLee I just wish everyone had left Triumph, Ambitious card, the linking rings, sponge balls, ring on string etc alone. All these magicians coming along and putting their own spin on things just makes my head spin.

I'm also pretty sure Rus didn't start this thread, someone else said they had seen this performed and heard from Rus that it was in the pipeline, Rus has explained that he is working on something, and given a little more detail. But GaryLee good idea, its not out why are we talking about this product that is still be worked on, perhaps it this should have been posted under a topic heading that dealt with speculation about forthcoming releases perhaps a
"place where folks can discuss the latest rumors, read announcements and speculate about the obvious hyperbole surrounding many of the upcoming products that are released into magicdom. Will they be genuine miracles or mere rhetoric? We ponder the question..."
if only such a topic existed on the Café...

I guess it depends on how much either the effect or the method is improved.

Or as in the case with Richard Sanders' "Extreme Burn" both were improved considerably (IMO).

Yes, but if I took the gimmick Richard uses and modify it just slightly, would I be allowed to put it on the market and call it, "Extremely Burned"? lol

What a complete waste of thread! 2 pages of hype and arguments - nothing else! Can we just please see a demo?
Read a few genuine user reviews (not the usual hype from the magicians friends!) and we can all
make up our own minds. I use Prohibition and like it a lot so I am interested in seeing this. Less interested
in the hype and childish arguments.
We are inclined to believe those whom we do not know because they have not yet deceived us...

That was strange! This thread vanished, and then reappeared again a few hours later.

Jesus guys! (you know who you are). Give the guy a break here. I was able to see Rus perform this and I have to say that for your everyday, totally impromptu, no rings, no clap trap, no magnets, no nada..this is very very good. You have a really nice routine here rus and it is very well thought out.
