I got amazing reactions from this , after using 13 sticks I realized I will definitely be getting refills ... I suggest enphasing that those two sticks are separated before the effect starts ... In this case I feel emphasizing the obvious is a bit necessary ...

I gotta say ,i just love the illusion so much playing with it,i have only snapped one to see how it plays in the mirror,really got to stop myself from snapping another one,lol,i am waiting till my daughter comes in with her boyfriend to give it a shot,it is a joy just to play around with it,so I am very happy and will performed it at work for the canteen staff at our college COSTA.

This basically self working gimmick can receive great reactions when done in the right time . All the sticks in the coffe shops I found looked different from it though ... But still it is nice to just bring out two sticks and say I got them from the shop ... No one really notice any diff , Smile

Would be nice two have 2 ordinary that looked the same ,this could of been added to the pack I feel,yes I know it does not need it and it is very nice and self working but I am good at switching and it to me would be even more great for the awkward spectators,i just love shutting them up,lol.

Yeah true . Maybe in the refill pack they should include some ungimmicked sticks . I'm not good at switching these long sticks though but it would have been nice to hold four sticks in my hand . Give the two normal ones to the spectator and use the two gimmicked ones on my hands to do Wishbone . That would be nice too .

I like that,that would be nice.Just got to COSTA ones and they are pretty much the same,just a litle longer,but this could be done,so all is well,ther might even be away of doing this without refill's with a bit of sliight with the advanced palming,but to be honest it is so good with the basic handling gotta be worth the refill's,a little cheaper would of been nice.

I had been using mine extensively for the past week . From the reactions I got I will definitely be getting refills Smile I was just too lazy to pull of the advance handling haha . Since they might both achieve the same type of reaction I would just like to stick with the simpler method , however I would still prefer to have some un-gimmicked sticks though , would be a nice convince that those sticks are not originally linked .

Well I went into BURGER KING today ,YES I know that they do not have the wooden stick's but my plan was to try out a little something I have come up with,with starws and as Wisbone is a fast food resturante theme I thought I would give it a go.I ordered my burger and coke,grabbed some straws and while I was waiting, there were a few other's there also waiting for their meal's. So I said would you like to see a trick? Yes,ok then so I took a straw out of the wrapper ,the wrapper has BURGER KING printed on it the straw's DO NOT,just plain white with red stripe.I showed both sides plain then a little flick and it had burger king printed on it,then with a swipe of my hand, it was gone.lot's of applause and I was tickled to see people openning up their straws and looking for the burger king on them whilst I eat my burger.After that,never wanted all the cola so I went to COSTA for a coffee and you guessed it, done the waitress up with WISHBONE signed, I just left while she had her gob left open,Oh I love our art with a passion,just thought I would share ,all the best.

For those who want ungimmicked sticks, I made my own ( had to waste two gimmicks) , but it was easy and does help to be able to give out matching sticks.

I promised Bro that if we used Wishbone in a television show we are producing I would publicly and honestly post about the lay people's reactions to the effect. I thought the product was a natural-- a direct effect with familiar items… some members of the magic team, like many on this thread, were skeptical.

To be clear, our presentation wasn't the same as the one that comes with the effect, and we didn't use the "basic" method. That said, our presentation is a completely obvious one (if 'going out for coffee with friends' is something you enjoy doing) and by "not basic" I mean, we put a little effort into it (ie. a simple switch with a little bit of misdirection.)

We performed it for several spectators and the reactions ranged from laughter to amazement to both with tears… yes, tears.

There are many valid reasons not to perform this or any other effect-- but "because its not strong magic" can't be one of them.

Dave-

If I might ask are you tying this in with a Mentalism angle I assume? Energy, power of two, etc?

I saw this on the WPR for the 1st time today and I can see what it is I think but my concern was that it might be too magicky perhaps. Then again with the organic nature of the wood sticks it might work for a Mentalist no?


Hey Brett

I wasn't the performer in this instance. If you were concerned about your persona as a MindReader I certainly wouldn't perform it.
Fortunately I don't have to worry about that 😉

Bought this when it first came out. Love it. I know a few years went by but I’m trying to get on the instructional video to brush up on some handlings and my passcode will not work. I sent a PM to Bro but no response- which I understand, he may not have been on the Café lately. Can anybody help? It’s not vital but I should be able to log on. Same thing happened with “Flap” by Hondo, and he gave me a new password for “Flap”, and also the reason it was changed- don’t remember what it was but it was a logical reason for the change.
