He teaches it here

It requires an extra gimmick and, I gather, he uses a rather high quality one. You may spend up to $60.00 plus the price of the DVD if you want to do that effect as nicely as he did on Letterman.

If you wanted to play around with this type of effect, there is a cheaper version in Tarbell vol. 4, "The Penetrative Silk" pg. 355. With a little imagination you could come up with an alternative hook-up as well.

The gimmick that he uses for that is not "upwards of 60"... The cheapest you will be able to find the one he uses is at least $115. Settling for less allows for more room for error and a worse looking effect.

I know that sounds incorrect (like there HAS to be a cheaper option) but I have played around with EVERYTHING and ONLY the brand that he uses is the one that works.

Couldn't you use a modified hand-held fan?
That would only cost a couple of dollars.

Just another idea/method, use a rubberband "ala" crazyman's handcuff method instead of a silk.

After all, who carries around a silk anyway, and it's great for an office setting (all the props are right there).

I often use that "method" with a borrowed ring, and get great reactions too.
