This question hasn't been answered although asked several times.....
Here goes again.
What is the cost of the replacement gimmicks and how many do you receive?
Janet mentioned receiving 40+ gimmicks with the initial order of Wishbone. What does 40+ mean?
I work 3 restaurants a week 40 won't go very far.
Looks interesting....
If you can't help worrying, remember worrying can't help you!

Hi David I believe we settled on 41 gimmicks in the original pack. The refills will be $15 for 25 gimmicks and will be available in the not to distant future. Congrats on the weekly gigs!

Hi Bronx I saw your private message and sent you the correct password, I am looking into this matter now as it appears you received a sticker with the wrong passcode on it. If anybody else experiences a problem with the passcode while I look into this please don't hesitate to contact me.

Sorry, the effect was ordered through Murphy's Magic, so it was their password that didn't work. If anyone ordered through the same vendor, please let me know if you have the correct pw. Thanks so much. I have actually figured out a method that will work, although I'm not sure it's the right one. I'm going to try it at the event I"m doing tomorrow anyway and see how well I do. I'm using it for one of my corporate clients and it fits beautifully with their messaging at the event. I may need to order a s***load of refills Smile

Thank you, Bro. That was, in fact, the problem. This was clearly a password for a different effect (PHWALLET) Two wallets that magically stick together?? Smile

In any event, I really appreciate your help. I've left word with Murphy's about the error. Hopefully, it didn't go out that way to everyone. Have a great weekend.

It has been about two weeks since I first asked about this. Is there a video showing a better handling (than in the original trailer) which shows two separate sticks, as stated by the Bro Gilbert, earlier in this thread?

The video loads for me at Murphy's site, but I am unable to save the video, despite there being a link to do so. Anyone else? I'm simply given the message that the file (which appears to be named 'Octopalm') is unavailable.
It's all in the reflexes.

Cheers, Bro! I actually did just that, and it seems they're on it.

Let me just say that this thing is beautifully, simply brilliant. A wonderful, memorable moment of strange (to cop Paul's words). Please, everyone, leave this alone so that I can be the only one (other than Bro) performing it round the world.
People will keep this magical souvenir, show it to friends, and talk about it for a long time. Just fantastic.

I perform in the world of Harry Potter quite regularly (at Universal's Diagon Alley & Hogsmeade), and I'm sure you all know how wildly popular that franchise it. If you want a different, funny presentational framing, or one that you can use outside coffee shops, talk about Potter and the role that magic wands play in the story. "What are our modern day magic wands?", you ask. "The things that we wave around to give ourselves power? Coffee stirrers, of course! They conjure a potion of sugar and caffeine - potent stuff!"
You could even discuss how it is "the wand that chooses the wizard" and work that into the signing and the final magical moment.
As for breaking the wands, not sure how you squeeze that in, but get creative and you'll think of something.
It's all in the reflexes.

Wishbone has arrived with us in the UK and is ready to ship http://www.saturnmagic.co.uk/new-magic/w......ert.html

This is one of those rare items where you can really take it out of the box and do it almost right away.

It has nice classy packaging as well!

I've had a few days to work on this and I have to say, it's a GREAT routine. I am not using the wishbone premise as it doesn't really fit the corporate work I do. But the idea of 'two elements joining' absolutely does. And the fact that the magic happens in the spectator's hands is one of my sure fire crowd-pleasers in my trade show work. I'll be making a considerable investment in the gimmicks. GREAT JOB, BRO ...

I'll note a couple of small manufacturing discrepancies here, but nothing presentation and handling shouldn't be able to smooth over. The gimmicks are a hair wider and just a bit thicker than the stir sticks at Starbucks (this may vary with with other coffee houses and Cafés, obviously). They're rather a three-layer affair, with the center layer being darker than the outer layers. This won't in any way deter me from doing the trick, but I likely won't leave the longer, broken off pieces on the table for examination and comparison.

I am liking the premise of this effect. I just think I am thinking too much like a magician on this one. How are some of the reactions you guys are getting. Not on presentation but the actual effect. Is it strong?

This looks perfect for those times when spectators would like you to perform Anniversary Waltz again. It's such a magical moment!

Just a note that we did a lot of research on stir sticks before settling on these ones. (Only in magic would you hear a sentence like that! ) We found that in different areas around the world sticks can vary a little in size thickness etc. and these were the closest we found to matching the standard sticks in Starbucks and common chain coffee shops around the globe. I explain this in the teaching but keep in mind people really are not stir stick experts and are not looking at the microscopic details on the sticks when they use them. Our interaction with stir sticks in the real world typically lasts about 5 seconds or less. We order our coffee, go over to the counter, put in our cream, sugar grab a stir stick whip it around for a few seconds and throw the stir stick in the garbage. This all happens up at the counter and then you head out into the world or go sit down. Having performed this hundreds of times, nobody has ever picked up a broken piece of stick and tried to compare it against other coffee sticks. All of the focus is on the impossible signed wishbone souvenir that they are now holding in their hands. After your performance you should do a little tidy up anyways and be pocketing those broken pieces for the future. Hope that helps clarify.

Everything Bro just said.
It's a brilliant trick that will really stay with people.

I once watched Bro eat a taco from a street vendor in L.A - he did not even realise that is what I wished for Smile
