I hope my wife does record it. In that case I'll post it.

I have been using my Extreme Hank for a Year Now. Great Audience reaction. I use the theme from Casper the Ghost for the Music. I edited the chorus by repeating it for a longer routine when performing on Stage when going out to the Audience. One performing note. Check your lighting prior to performing. You might have to position the box where the Cork is vs. your bottle. Sometimes it works better when you position the Box with the Cork at a 45 degree angle to Bottle in reference to the audience instead of the two being parallel with the audience. One handy item I bought on Amazon was a Fly Holder. Perfect for Batteries, Spare Motor, Thread and Spools.

That Fly Holder is a great idea. I've just been using a pencil case.

For even harder performing conditions you can have the box directly behind the bottle. Otherwise at an angle is definitely best!

The link in my last post does not work. Here it is again. I love the comments in the background. The routine goes on where I have a child hold the bottle and the silk jumps through a hoop.

Any of you guys that are performing this in your show have any issue with the noise that it makes when it's going? Has any of you had an issue with someone looking up toward the bottom of the cork?

I've always liked this trick, but never thought of a logical way to perform it... and now it's hit me and I'm pretty much obsessed with it. I'm sure I'll be getting it one day!

Sounds like everyone who gets one is quite happy with it.

Regarding noise... I recently got an extreme hanky and in my trials it's not noisy at all under normal circumstances, nothing that music shouldn't cover. Now from time to time, the spool comes a little loose and then it makes a much louder noise during operation... in this case it would be a potential problem.. music should still cover it some but probably wouldn't want to take it into the audience much.

As for looking up.... not sure what they could really see... hard to know what you are looking at.


I just recently got a unit that was technically used but basically brand new. I love it. I can't ever imagine selling it, it's just so fun. Can't wait to perform it.
