If you hand them the pendulum while holding both the top of the chain and the weight, then you know which direction it most likely will swing in.

So, it's not like you can hand it to them and know if it will swing back and forth, or circular.

It's a clever piece of work, but I'm actually having a hard time putting it to use in a mentalism show.

I take it that the 'Wishcraft Psychic Pendulum' by Fantasma Magic is something else entirely?

The one in the above link looks like a cheap toy where Bills looks a lot more professional IMO.

In the blurb on the website it sounds like it is a guaranteed force rather than a tendency, whereas here it seems less certain. Can anyone give a better idea of how reliable this is in practice and what it's like to use? And to be clear, not only can you set the direction but you can also have no direction and it becomes a regular pendulum, right?

It's a pendulum. A nice looking pendulum. But it IS a weight suspended in a chain. That being said, of course it can swing in any direction. It is not a surefire force. It is gimmicked such that it probably will swing a certain way. I think it is very clever, and it is very well made, but it is not something I would use in my mentalism act.

You can buy mine - either for money or we can swap with some other mentalism.

Anyone know when (or if) it will be back in stock?

I don't understand this concept. I can get a pendulum to move in any desired direction in the client's hands. See Page 6 of "Pendulum Magic For Beginners" by Richard Webster. With a little thought, I've also been able to direct the pendulum without having to touch the client. If there's enough interest, I will write it up in Inner Thoughts.

Sincerely,
Dale A. Hildebrandt

Would love to read your thoughts on that, I'm designing an effect and need to be able to force something with a pendulum (80-90% success rate is also fine)

Dale, I would also love to read your thoughts on this.

As to whether there will be more of these pendula, I did e-mail Bill Montana a month or so ago and he told me that the source for one of the parts of the pendulum was no longer able to make them, so he did not know when or if there would ever be more.
