You should try avoiding using the word "best". I personally like Pressure.

It works with pretty much any party-type balloon. No balloon-animal balloons will work. So I guess you could say it can be borrowed.

That's the best part of this effect. 100% impromptu.

:lol: That's good to hear. That's gotta be something else then because Pressure is 1) Take normal balloon 2) Take borrowed cell phone 3) Phone penetrates balloon. No set-up at all.

Don't buy pressure, you'll feel ripped off. I'll give you a hint, do what it looks like.

Get curve ball, or ring tone.

If your looking for something that specifically requires a cell phone because of how they work, don't get pressure. You can shove next to anything in a balloon using pressure. It's a neat effect, but not worth the price.

Benji, you being a working mentalist, how is curve ball really? It really sounds too good to be true.

Pressure was ridiculous. I almost wasted my money and then finally figured it out on my own. Enough time thinking about it and you CAN figure it out without paying for it. I would've felt ripped off had I bought it.

I am by no means a professional and know my performance is not where it needs to be, but I've seen Pressure done three times by three different pros and (all performances were decent-great) and (ironically the worst performer out of the three) only one of the three got good reactions from it. The other twos' audiences were like "...ok?"

I can't offer any alternatives, but I highly recommend staying away from Pressure.
