This depends on a variety of factors (all of which are discussed in the video). Via either method, the effect is largely the same: the bottle slowly crushes by itself. The crush is pretty dramatic in either method - which is why we included both. In the instructional part of the video, you'll see a VERY pronounced, severe crush using both methods.
I just finished putting my order in, and I cannot wait to finally receive this and have it be part of my close-up performance! Thank you Theory11 for releasing some of the best magic effects out on the magic market today!
Personally, my preference would be the ungimmicked method due to the circumstances in which I usually perform. Most of the time when I perform something today, it's not a planned event - it's for friends and acquaintances. That said, I used to perform working gigs (theater shows) quite often, and in that environment I would have definitely favored the gimmicked handling. Moral of the story is that it 100% depends on when and where you perform. But I do believe that for pretty much any performance environment, one of the two methods provided will work.
Will CRUSH work just as good as water bottles with ripples in them? Such as this bottle, here? Because mainly you'll see this type of bottles at parties, because they're generic and you get a lot more in bulks for a cheaper price.
