Does anyone have the Acrobatic Bottle by Mr. Magic? If so, what do you think of it?

The few small items I purchased that are made by Mr. Magic, are very poor quality. So buyer be ware it may not work at all.

What you reference is the old Grant' Topsy Turvy bottle trick. Still being sold today. It comes with 2 bottles and 2 tubes.

From the picture, as I do not have this effect, is a version fashioned after the old Abbott's Topsy Turvy bottle trick. That uses a totally different method then Grants.

I don't know how you would use a single bottle version, as it can not hold any liquid. They are selling it this way, most likely because you cannot use a spectator to follow your actions, like in the Grant version. I never owned the Abbott's version, so I don't know the routine they or how they used it.

If you can think of way to use this prop in your act, it may work, but that is for you to decide.

Yes, that looks like a similar item, only using a square tube.

I bought one from a private guy with an idea but it didn't work out as planned. It is decently made. I have one that I would sell for $30 plus $5 shipping. I played with it a few times, but it's like new.

Thanks. I actually have a $50 gift certificate from Murphy's, which they generously give to the local SAM and IBM clubs for prizes. So it would cover all except the tax.
