Indeed we will. Best of luck. And let us know if you figure out a reasonable way to use it. Thanks.

Ok, I received Blossom, the wide range version. I had a chance to play around with it. I also have a great comedy routine that I would love to do with it, but I'm having some problems. I'm not too concerned about the issue of transporting it in a special container, but I'm having a performance problem.

I seem to have the opposite problem as Jaizon, probably because I have the wide range version. I was hoping for something that I could put in my warm hands (I have very warm hands), or hold between two fingers, and it would start to bend immediately. Mine bends so slow, that the performance would be like watching grass grow. In the video, they talk about putting it in a participant's closed hands. That really does speed up the process. That's fine, but I'm looking for parlor magic, so why on earth would I have a participant close their hands around the fork so no one can see it bend? They also talk about building a special table to speed up the process. That might work, I'm just not keen on the idea of bringing furniture to a gig. Maybe I could hire a moving company each time and bring in a couch, a few chairs, and my special table. Let's see, $250 for the gig, $750 for the moving company. Maybe I could make it up in volume. "Honey, I just need to do more gigs!"

I'm still trying to figure out how to make it work for me.

If someone has the screwdriver, could you please let me know: Can you hold the screwdriver in your hand and have the screwdriver appear to bend over?... Without it taking a week to bend?

Also, I would love to hear comments for both wide range and narrow range screwdrivers.

Thanks.

I bought both and prefer the sensitive version. I use it only in my stage/parlour gig with the DIY prop. The effect looks beautiful on stage. I built it with a table you could take apart from ikea. The overall size is about half of my Snow Animator (napkin holder version). No problem fitting into my truck with the snow animator. Still got room for other things. Look for the brown four legs. It's light and packs small.

Thanks, AaronishMagic. It seems the wide range version is best for in the hands bend, which will freak out the person holding the fork and the sensitive version is perhaps better for out of the hands bend, possibly with a little something to help it along.

I will say that the wide range version works tremendously well in the hands, but I too am looking for something for stage/parlor. I'm thinking about switching out for the sensitive one.
