I saw this at the Hank Lee website. Does anyone have this? Can you give me a review if this is worth it for US$140.00?

I also saw this performed by a lady in a french channel. She used two floating flames which looked like fireballs. I think she is Alpha's partner.

Dude that seems wicked man! The only levitation I know is Fearsons flaoting cig, this seems more like a stage illusion. I will be lurking for reviews also!

It doesn't say anything about the fire ball passing through a hoop, but has a picture of it doing so...?

I purchased a floating flame from Bob Coluzzi, but it's different from this one. At first, it's not all that impressive until one realizes that the gimmick that is usually used to float things cannot be used to float something that's on fire!

I've had good luck with mine, but have only performed it public a handful of times. I paid $295 and it's worth it to me.

I did a search for Bob Coluzzi on Google and couldn't find a source for the effect you mention. It sounds great and I'd like to read a discription of it and know where to purchase it. If you can point me in the right direction it would be appreciated

Bob's a retired magician living in the Chicago area. I don't believe any more of these are available. When he sold it, he said he would make only ten and once they were gone, they were gone. That was part of the reason for the price tag.

Salut!

I attended a lecture by Alpha some years ago, and he explained us how to make the props...I can't explain it here of course, but it should be mentionned that this is a stage/street(by night) illusion.
I loved doing it until I stop working with fire...

There's also book notes that were published a few years ago to build it and a lot of other fire gimmicks, not only for stage but for close-up too. But this floating flame is only for stage.

For that price, it is probably worth it. I'd be interested in it. If you get it, let me know how you like it.

I have a floating fireball that floats over one of my hands. Like the others here, its not that impressive until you realize that IT doesn't work. I have gotten many comments to the extent of, "wow, I can't see the threads" or, "Its on a string between your fingers" At least it gives me the comfort of knowing that they don't actually know how I'm doing it. Unfortunatly it doesn't matter that they don't know how its actually being done--if they think they know how it works, they won't be too impressed.

I want a floating fireball I can float from hand to hand and such that doesn't have a complicated set up. Are any of the ones mentioned here good in that way?

I have Bob Coluzzi's "Ultimate Floating Flame" for sale.
It is complete, unused and in mint condition.
The whole set was only offered 10-20 times and is extremely rare.
It comes with a brass lamp (arabian night style), a demonstration video, instructions and all needed materials still unused.
This effect is a reputation maker and the highlight of any magic act. It can be performed almost surounded and only needs to take place 5 feet away from the audience .
The whole effect (if done like Mr. Coluzzi) is a small act itself and although some experienced magicians will have an idea what you are doing, most will be baffled how it is actually done.
At the moment I have no idea what I should ask for the effect but I will not consider offers below 300 $ (which is even below what I paid for it).
It is not enough to be without thoughts,
one should also be unable to express them.
