Magic Steel Ball and Tube plus Magic Ian book plus Drop out! Instant MagicTricks
A brass tube and solid steel ball are offered for examination. The ball is LARGER than the diameter of the tube, but the magician causes the ball to sink INTO the tube and rise again. Of course, should a spectator try, he finds it impossible as the ball remains on top of the tube. A splendid pocket trick. You also receive 31 page book by Magic Ian. Newly revised and updated book describing all of the routines you can do with the underrated steel ball and tube effect. After learning the effects in this book, you can even fool people who own the trick! 31 pages.
Basic effect: a steel ball resting on a metal tube slowly descends into the tube and emerges again... all can be passed out for examination.
An interesting little metal device is handed out for inspection along with a small, metal ballbearing. You place the ball into the device and when you turn it over, the ball doesn't drop out. When the spectator tries it the ball drops out every time! There are no magnets or moving parts. Very sneaky, top quality!
