This is a pre-owned effect we acquired from an old magician’s estate buy-out. It’s in good operating and cosmetic condition. Does not come with any original instructions but we can supply written instructions if you aren’t familiar with it. Just let us know. The working is very easy.
The magician shows a decorated metal tube with two solid metal spikes running thru its center. The spikes are removed and the magician places a balloon in the tube and inflates it fully. The balloon bulges from the tube, filling it completely, and extending out both ends.
Then the spikes are thrust through the tube from side to side. The balloon remains inflated and totally unharmed! The balloon is allowed to deflate and is tossed to the people to keep. The tube is lifted and shown to the audience. In the center of the tube can be seen the spikes running from side to side. There doesn’t seem to be any answer to this one.
Note: Uses an airship type balloon which you must supply. You receive the tube and spikes only.
