Now i currently know an have a few in my arsenal...namely SKYWALKER...KING RISING...MATRIX LEVITATION/SUSPENSION...BALADUCCI..ZERO GRAVITY..ETC. I'm personally hooked on skywalker myself..im wondering what are your favorite levitations to perform?

i feel levitations are kinda overrated.The worst thing you can do is to perform a levitation as an opener.The success of a levitation depends on the kind of reactions you are getting from the effects performed prior to it.One common mistake that i have seen is that you would be performing for about 4 people.Of the 4 about 3 would be giving great reactions.One of them would be kinda skeptical and saying things like"arent you just tilting the fork?","can i shuffle the cards?","show me your other hand","let me put that card in the middle".If you levitate this guy would probably ruin the illusion.The chances are that they are partially heckling you or just have a different prespective.Darwin ortiz has a section in "strong magic" called "darwin's laws".Law number 34 says "Never end on a screw up".This is just my take on levitations.I am open to criticism.:D

Well from the ones you just listed, I don't like any of them.

I'm actaully working on my own. And I'm almost there. I'm actually working on 2!
Levitating myself and levitating someone else. I'm almost ready to do it, there's just one little thing I'm missing.
