This came from an old magic shop buy-out. New old stock. Trick is complete with its original instructions and clear packaging envelope. The plastic sticks are slightly warped but the weights still seem to work okay.
Effect: Two sticks are exhibited. At the end of each stick there is a length of cord and a tassel. One cord shown to be short and the other long. The short cord is pulled and the long cord then becomes short. This is repeated back and forth a few times. There is no visible connection. Both cords are then made long. Now an imaginary hair is pulled from the magician’s head and fastened to the end of each cord. The hair is pulled upwards and both strings become short!
