Does anyone have a problem with the string being stuck in it's hiding place? With the currently supplied EZ break string I'm afraid if I pull too hard it will break. This doesn't always happen, only sometimes does it get stuck and require a stronger pull.

If it is getting stuck as you put it, then you are doing something incorrectly, or maybe you are just hurrying to much. Preparation is very important to take your time and do it correctly. As you said, "sometimes", then it must be working correctly at other times. It should flow out very smoothly.

Revisit the video and if necessary contact Tony Clark. He has always been very helpful.

Bill,
I appreciate your input. Does this ever happen to you when you do this routine?
I do take my time doing it. Because it's a balloon made of rubber the way it grips the thread will vary
each time you place it inside. Deeper, more shallow, tighter etc.......it's inconsistent.

No, no problem for me. Balloons are now Latex, not rubber any longer.

Bill, glad to hear you have the routine smooth.
Ok....Latex.......That's what I meant to say. Regardless of the actual material
of the balloon it will sometimes hang up but I will continue to work on it.

Bill, are you using the EZ break string that Tony now supplies or are you using
the thin yarn that some performers are choosing to use?

Ok...Being that Bill has not answered I will assume he doesn't know the answer so.........
For anyone here using the Gypsy Balloon do you use the supplied string from Tony or are you using the yarn that some performers are choosing to use?

Here is the forum thread that discussed this trick. You might want to post here or contact one or all of the many show say they purchased and performed this effect.
