Get the Zombie Ball. With the right music and instructional course ( lots out there, search it ) it's still the best stage presentation for the money.

Try something like the Linking Rings. It's a very versatile effect that performs well on stage or in the parlor. If you're willing to put in the work, the reactions can be huge.

My vote is the linking rings as well. I have been doing the David Ginn Comedy Linking Ring routine for 25 years. This goes over great with kids and adults.

appearing or disapearing cane- i hate it though, because a two year old can figure out that it just extends from something small hidden in your hand

Magic Mirror box- to pull bunneys or other stuff out of

linking rings

mentalism watches

"spun"

if you want a killer effect, chris angel's self levitation dvd will make you a legend for those you perform though, but will put a seriously hole in your wallet ($300) hope i helped, reply to me sometime deriko

Ugg, I hate the Zombie Ball. It's terrible atleast the one I got. THe fallaurd is see through and the ball splits in half! It's very poor quality. I got it from penguin, maybe check out another place.

Nick,

Order it from somewhere else. Zombie ball really is a great effect. I've ordered a modified Zombie Ball, which is more lightweight, and the gimmick different, in a sence of it's workings. It can be floated without a foulard, either.

Penguin isn't the only place to shop, lol! Zombie is a great effect... if presented well.

Also, the ball splits in half? Must be the MAK. It's there for productions of other objects, as a finale.

Ohhhhh, i see. Lol it didn't come with instructions,. Great idea! But yes, the zombie ball is a great classic effect, but I use a much more expensive versoin called imposible hank (animation sensation). It's great. If you stick with magic, definatly check it out in a few years, its kinda pricey.
