I'm wondering if anyone actually owns UltraCandle by Curty (produced by Egelo Magic in Norway), and can provide some feedback on the product (reliability, spectator reactions, etc.).

https://www.egelomagic.com/product/ultracandle/

It looks beautiful, and seems to be very reliable!

I have a cheap version of the self-lighting candle, which is fine for entertainment purposes, but it doesn't look like a real candle, and there's the obvious clicking sound as it ignites. These issues seem to be solved with this new version.

I've added this to cart many times, but always ended up canceling the sale, as it is almost $500 bucks! Just wondering what you guys think of the effect, and any personal reviews from owners.

A tempting replacement is Light It Up from Sansmind, but the negative reviews keep pouring in, so I'm back to looking at UltraCandle to replace my old candle. Any thoughts, opinions, and reviews would be great!

P.S. My apologies if this topic is already covered here. I searched quite a bit, but came up empty, so I decided to post.

Also very interested. This looks beautiful. A little worrying that the “next batch” is quoted to have started shipping last year and is still out of stock.
Things are about to change........ LIGHTS!!!

When I was on the brink of purchasing this, I communicated quite a bit with Egelo, and they were very kind and accommodating. I'm sure there's nothing shady with the operation, but I did notice the same thing. It seems like it could take a while for them to be back in stock.

It would be great to hear a review from someone who actually owns this.

But we are all magicians here, each pretending to be a character they are not; deception, So, could you trust a review by someone saying they actually own it? Do they actually own it, or is it just a person playing their character and saying they do? Hummmm

This is true. I know there are a lot of people pushing products, so I wouldn't immediately pull out my credit card just because someone on the Café says it's great. There's actually one review on their website, but it sounds like someone connected to the product, so I ignored it. I couldn't find any other reviews online, so here we are.

I was hoping for more of an ongoing discussion of good and bad points, routines, etc., rather than receiving a generic "It's great! Add to cart!" response. I guess sometimes silence is the most persuasive review.

Just wanted to add to this candle discussion. After Ultra Candle, a recent addition was the Devil's Candle (there's already a discussion on this product here: https://www.themagiccafe.com/forums/viewtopic.php?forum=218&topic=685904). The price is steep for both, but UC has been sold out for months, and apparently there is only one DC left at HP.

Now there's Automatic Fire Candle by Ultimate Fire Products: https://hocus-pocus.com/magicshop/index.cfm?p=57788. It's cheaper than Ultra Candle and the Devil's Candle, but it doesn't look as realistic in my opinion. Also, the demo offers an interesting presentation. Not sure how many of us perform in areas that allow casually throwing flames around.

I have a version of Ghost Candle 2.0, which also looks cheap, but it has served me well. I think most audience members won't believe it's an actual candle anyway, so I don't mind the cheap look/feel. Still, adding a nice one to my holiday acts is tempting.

The Café is still lacking in reviews for any of these candles (although Angel has been very kind to provide details for the DC), so hopefully some reviews will be added to this thread soon. Smile
