We have imported the Color Match Wands from Europe and they are a great “packs small, plays huge” item for those that would like to present a light mentalism inspired routine with many audience members participating.
5 different colored wands are introduced as well as 5 opaque black tubes. While the magician turns around (or even leaves the room) a spectator is asked to put each wand in one of the tubes and seal them. He can check the wands and tubes as he is doing this, he will not find anything out of the ordinary. He can do this in any order he chooses and when he is done he can mix the tubes as much as he wants.
He then takes five solid colored silks that match the colors of the wands and gives one each to five audience members of his choosing (who can remain at their seats).
The magician then turns around and takes the five tubes and hands each spectator who is holding a silk one of the tubes. One by one the spectators open the tube and show that the wands match the silks they are holding.
The wands are rather large (approx. 15″ long) and the colors are selected well to provide a good contrast. This is highly visual even in larger auditoriums.
The Color Match Wands are easy to perform so you will be able to fully concentrate on the presentation.
Supplied with English instructions, 5 18″ Silks, Wands & Tubes and the little gimmick that makes all this possible. No electronics are involved. Best of all there is no Force of any sort involved!
