I always go slightly over my shoulder, so the end up behind me when I'm performing on the floor.

Louie is such a great performer. And down right, a real class act. I saw him perform at a PCAM many years ago. Had us laughing are butts off. Did real high level magic also.

I have this and like it a lot. I had a hard time loading the snakes until I made a device to help me load them. It is a hard plastic water bottle that I cut a "window" out at the bottom but left some of the base and there is also a notch. Take a look at the picture. I can push the snakes down and then insert the nail.

Hey Ron!

That's a great solution. Personally I've always used my hand to reload them. However a last summer I had hurt one of my wrists and briefly used a thick wooden dowel because I couldn't use both hands how I normally would do it.

Great thinking!

Then there is the Can-o-Wands by Dick Barry. I find that the wands get caught up in the lip of the plastic can where the lid screws, so they don't come out smoothly.
I also have one the Dick Oslund Comedy Balloon Pumps. It has the same problem. He told me it helps delay the snake but it always looks like I mess it up.( I'm not as good as Dick Oslund)

I modified the Pump I got from Dick Oslund and it works great! What set my mind in motion was a small mustard jar I bought with a snake in it. It had a cardboard tube in it to make the snake come out smoothly.

On my big Plastic pump, I carefully trimmed the plastic at the top, so there is no lip. Now the snake come flying out smoothly!

Louie Foxx is participating in the 2020 KIDabra Virtual Conference, which is happening right now (August 19-22, 2020). In fact, he's lecturing tomorrow.

https://www.kidabra.org/

He just mentioned in one of the other event videos that he also sells the Snake Wand Surprise directly though his website.

Here's the link:

I got this second hand. Loved the snakes but hated the release mechanism. I just made another wand with a partition so I can put two or three snakes in one end and eight or nine in the other end.

Much easier to load.
