IMO, the "shine" is not an issue. I've been using this item for years--even before it was being mass-marketed and so common--and I've NEVER had anyone notice it. And trust me, here in Idaho at the venues where I've worked, if they notice, they let you know!

Lol, my audiences are the same way, Scott.

When using the Sanada, do you folks find it best to hold something else in the gimmick hand, to give a more natural appearance to the position? Or does holding your hand in that position go by undetected? Do you hold the hand in a natural palm position, and stall for a bit (don't run when you're not being chased), when talking to the audience... Or do you use that hand to make little gestures while talking - basically flashing your hand "empty" without deliberately calling attention to it?

Besides this newer one http://www.elmwoodmagic.com/?nd=single-review&key=4076

Is Vernet the only one making these or are their different brands. I have read that Sanadas crack at the joints. Is the Vernet one the hard plastic or are their other vinyl ones out there?

It would be a good thing if PBJ had some discussion of the Sanada, handling and getting it in and out. Maybe in secret sessions or on your web site.

Does anyone know if the one in the Goshman kit is a soft or hard material or if it is the same gimmick most sell with a Goshman sponge included?

Is the only other one the Type G Sanada? Does Vernet have one?

How many shells are out on the market? (not JS Berry products... Just Sanada style)

Okay, so I lied. My Sanada gimmick didn't grow back.

Actually, I've never owned one. Just got my first one the mail from Abbott's today. It's a Goshman-made gimmick (came with a free sponge ball!). I'm a little worried about the shine. Is this something that should have makeup applied to it? Or, is the shine not something to worry about?

Thanks!

Sanadas are too dark for you, judging by your avatar pix:

I find them way too red. All you need is good flesh colored cloth tape. There's 3-4 brands, depending on where you go to get it. I use one inch, but if you can find 2 inch, go for it. They're a lot more comfortable wrapped in tape too, at least for me.

There's a newish DVD that has several Sanada routines on it.
I like it.
That's nice, Frank. What's it called?

For the ones who like Roger Klause's repeat sponge to the spectator's sleeve (like John Carney does), replacing the TT with the Sanada gimmick makes the routine way much more natural. Even Roger's hand clapping sounds more natural.

Try it.

If you really want your Sanada to fit correctly, it's a good idea to study Sanada form.

I cut mine back a bit too much. The color is not perfect but I also think it matches better under different lights, but is not all that critical.

I just received my gimmick along with Priest's Proton DVD. The gimmick was so fragile it split after 15 minutes or so . then after it split at the top ..not even on the crease but diagonally, I slightly bent the edge and it split too. there has to be a more durable one . I'm getting a replacement but is there one more durable than another? Any help would be great.

I haven't seen the new ones, but the old ones, which were made of a vinyl, similar to the Japanese TT's, were not fragile at all. It shouldn't take much pressure to hold on to it, though. Is there any chance that you squeezed it too hard. There shouldn't be any squeezing at all.

I don't think so. I have on order the DVD that comes with the gimmick. The newer gimmick is called Type -G and is also magnetic. Browsing through another thread on here about the gimmick , some say the one that comes with the DVD is more durable.This is the DVD http://www.penguinmagic.com/product.php?ID=S8209 Thanks for your input Bill.

It would be good for people who use this thing to check out Jay Scott Berry's work with his variants on it.

You can spray it with Testers Dull Cote spray paint that you can get at most hardware or craft stores. It will give it a dull finish.

Next, place your Sanada on top of the Sanada gimmick and see how much shorter your Sanada is than the gimmick.


Thanks Bill. I did this with my new Sanada gimmick and instantly got Sanada envy...
