I have been practicing with the TT. I have 4 effects i do well. It's funny because when i started watching daryl's Encyclopedia, my daughter who is also into magic, started watching with me. She told me " i cannot learn from him, he's too funny.... GONE!!!"
The TT I have is darker than my skin, I had issues about it... "people will see", it's " in their face..." " everyone knows about them."
Anyway, I just got the courage up one day, and did a vanish with it... I used " The Tuck".. used a variety of fingers... payed attention to details Like Time misdirection... flashed the empty palm, all non chalantely... and although she knew what a TT was, and How it could be used. her reaction was " Where the heck it go???"
I have to say that if people are into magic, they should get a TT, and learn to use it. Even if they don't see a way to put it in their act it is awesome for those impromptu moments....as someone said... see a sad kid give him a little reason to smile
