I have been looking at new magic for a few shows that people have requested that I do. I recently got some rope, and I'm trying to learn rope magic out of a book I have, but it is hard to do, knowing that Fiber Optics is out there...I almost don't want to do any other rope magic besides Fiber Optics first lol. I also bought some huge 2 1/2" sponge balls so that they are easier to see. I am looking at getting one more thing to make my show. My options are SMOKE, Fiber Optics, or Hardcore by Mr. Sankey. I know most of you are going to say SMOKE, but it's hard because that is the most expensive. Fiber Optics is SWEET, but I'm not sure how often I will do rope magic (I don't usually perform for audiences like this, I do close up). Hardcore is...well...Hardcore lol. I have always LOVED Sankey's stuff, and this DVD looks sick, I just don't know if I can make some of this stuff play well for a bigger audience, and also, it doesn't ship out until I think the 20th? I'm stuck in a bind, and don't know what to get. What do you guys think?
