Profile of shellgame-al is coming out with a whole new line of cork ball shells that appear to be fair shells.

The Cork Ball-Walnut Shells; are molded from a real walnut shell from the inside and out. There are no gimmicks employed into the shell.
The interior of the shell is designed for the cork ball to roll freely inside the shell without coming out of the shell when moved in all directions on the surface.

This is all done without a added ridge.

This makes the shells to appear to be fair shells and they are. But at any time you choose to make a steal and load into another shell it can be executed in an undetected way.

The same handling that is used with our Bottom Ridge Shells works very well with these shells.
So if you know this handling you have a head start in mastering these type shells.
Basically these type shells bring all the features the bottom ridge shells bring, but is all done without the added ridge and is all done with a natural cork ball.
Unlike other shells, these shells do have a undetectable secret to how they work that will only be known to the ones that own them.
They can be fully examined at any time without switching anything out.

These shells are not hard to use with some basic sleight of hand skills like; the finger clip, back finger clip and the thumb clip.
The cork balls are easy to finger clip, with the hand crafted texture that is applied to the cork balls.
The shells can also work with a soft pea if preferred, but using a soft pea will take away some of the fair game controlled features.

Our first set of cork ball shells being release is the Grizzly Shells.

Old School shells designed for today.

If you like to do the shell display with all three shells in one hand, you will find these shells are very amazing for this.

Most large shells you will have a hard time fitting three shells between your fingers.
These shells are 2-1/8 long by 1-1/2 wide and 1 High, one of the largest shells made today.

If you look at the picture that shows the back of the three shells on the new product preview link, you will see the shape from the back of the shell.
Just above the bottom shell base the natural shape of the shell goes inward some, where the side of the fingertips fit perfect to hold and control the shells.

You have full control of all three shells independently at the same time the ball stays inside the shell when the shells are moved.
When all three shells are shuffled on the surface the hand can lift the shells up and down during the shuffle, to show the cork location.
This will convinced them to follow the right shell. When you decide to do an undetected steal and a load into another shell, it is only once and only when you choose too.
This will all show that you have some good sleight of hand skills.

From all the different shells I have made over many years the Grizzly shells are my first choice shell in doing a one hand three shell display.

The beauty of this display, it is all done at the fingertips with full control and with larger shells that will look more impossible to do.
This will fool anyone, even magicians that know the shell game. This is because you are never forced to take the ball.
This is all done with no gimmicks and a natural cork ball that can all be examined if need be.
