As the materials and ruggedness continues to improve with these ID card reels, I'm finding more and more use for them to replace the costly magician's reels found in magic shops.

Most of us are used to seeing a bag of 3 el-cheapo plastic reels on the rack at Staples or Office Depot.

Dig a little deeper...do a little more ONLINE research, and spend a little more (around $15), and you'll find some fantastic and highly durable, smooth as silk Kevlar line, ID card reels. Here's an example, and it's even a locking reel:

That's just one reel, there are dozens more over on Amazon but space doesn't permit me elaborate.

Build your own Ring Flight for just a few dollars. Or how about a silk-thru-mic stand, or a silk jumping from bottle bottle or into your breast pocket. Or two reels so silks can jump from hand to hand.

And they brag 100,000 retractions, something you're not likely to get from your magic dealer.

Lastly, if you're looking for a finger clip, all you have to do is bend the belt clip 90 degrees and you're in business.

Ok, here's a bonus idea: Instead of bending the belt clip, leave it be. Clip it behind your Sanada Gimmick. Maybe use a piece of flesh colored First-Aid tape or cut the end from a cloth Band-Aid and stick it over the front of the metal clip. This probably isn't necessary but I post it for the purist.

When finger palmed this ID card / Sanada gimmick feels like something a magic super-heroe might carry...kind of like a Appearing Cane, the hand grenade of magic props.
