Ok I know that the TT is the beast of all close up street magic illusions. I would like to know, which is the best TT on the market today and some of the best videos. I know everyone says if you use it right no one will see it and I agree. But I like to come up with illusions myself and I perform magic right in front of the spectators face without them noticing a thing. But with the TT I have The Fredi-up (which I think is a great TT) the paint comes off and I am constently putting mak-up on it and because it is silicone the make-up doesn't like to stay on the TT. So I am now looking for different opinions and different TT besides the classic plastic ones.

The Vernet Soft TT. It's cheap, blends in nicely, and is just a little bigger then the classic.

You might want to look into Darwin's Encyclopedia of TT Magic.

He reviews all kinds of TT's on his DVD's and also sends a TT along with the DVD's.

but use a hard vernet TT for bill switches...and there's also a little book called 101 tricks with your TT (or something like that) which is supposedly pretty good too

You don't need a hard TT for Bill Switches. I use my soft one all the time. They do catch a little bit, but they don't make it impossible.

I have a thumb size of an 11 year old and have dark skin. I don't don't do bill switches so what TT should I use?

this is the BEST DVD possible to get, im selling mine because i had it awhile and got everything down on the dvd, but yes this dvd is a must get!!! the one thing on this dvd it tells you, its not the color of the TT, its how you use it. I used a dark skin TT, and did a vanish silk to pocket and no one caught me. Shows you its not the color of the TT, its how you use it, but get the dvd its worth ever single penny.

Darwin's DVD set for sure. I have it and it's my favorite DVD.

The TT it comes with is very nice as well. It's the In Your Face: Extreme Close-up Worker's TT. It's very rubbery and has a nice color. Made of vinyl.

The Vernet Soft TT is great as well. It's very flexible, but not rubbery. Also vinyl.

If you're ordering Darwin's DVD, I recommend buying some cheap plastic TT's along with it. He shows you a lot of different ways to modify a TT so that you can accomplish some great effects.

I have always used Vernet.
I have two of each- Soft TT, Hard TT, and FT.

Love them, they look great, and work even better.

And I am a close up performer, most of the time. These work great for both stage and close up.

-.- A Thumb Tip. You can use them to make things disappear, appear, torn and restored stuff. Just a very cool utility item.
