Thanks Blindsided. It's nice to see this thread actually talk about the effect and ideas rather than the useless nonsense.

It’s a fantastic trick. I used it last night in a parlor show for about 65ish people. It got people tense in all the right ways.

I don’t know if this has already been asked but I’m curious to know what the size of the hook is? I’d want to make sure I’m capable of placing the hook inside my mouth before purchasing.

Thanks,
Paul

Does your dental structure matter? I mean do you have to have intact molars ?

You will need to be able to lightly bite down and keep the arm of hook in place centered in your mouth between your teeth. So molars aren’t needed.

For people that have been using this for awhile, how are setting up the prop? I've been practicing this for awhile now, and have been using a letter opener to help with the prep work (sorry for being vague/cryptic, trying not to expose the method), just wondering if anyone has a better way to prep.

For those who are struggling to get the ring loaded, I found that a circular spark plug gaping tool works great. It is like a small circular inclined ramp. If you start at its lowest gap (point) and rotate it around the ring will open up easily. What is also nice is that you can rest the gaping tool on edge and it will hold the ring open for you to thread the strings. The tool is typically designed as a key fob so you can place it on a key ring as well.

This was a great effect for Halloween performances. More intense than the razor in hand in my opinion.

Even if it's not performed during Halloween it's still an awesome effect! I use it all the time and it just captures the audiences attention with suspense and anxiety, lol!

Does anyone perform this as a MAGIC effect?
It offers some excellent entertainment
- but, I'm not sure what effect is being created in the audience mind.

On a couple of occasions the string has been almost caught within its self.
Scary moment indeed.

Great effect. Missing the links to live performances though. For the money the explanation is thin. Lack of live performances and no false counts for the strings. Not so impressed with lost arts production for the money but full marks to Eric Ross for a fun, pack small, high attention grabbing effect. Ideal for my style.

Why would there be false counts? There's no need to false count the threads here - you're thinking like a magician not a laymen.
