THIS PRO SET INCLUDES 2 BEAUTIFUL SETS OF 1.5" BALLS. LEAVE ONE IN YOUR CASE AS A BACKUP, OR LET YOUR IMAGINATION RUN WILD, TRANSFERRING "BOUNCE" FROM ONE TO THE OTHER. DAN TEACHES STEP BY STEP HOW TO CUSTOMIZE YOUR SETS TO ANY COLOR.



"Dan Harlan has turned a cute trick into a show stopper."



Included are 2 presentations, and Dan's pro tips on making this the most beautiful set of balls you own.

1. The classic presentation, where it's all about how much an audience member "believes" in the physical properties of the ball. A crowd pleaser, and a standard in many professionals' acts.

2. Dan's reputation making stage presentation "Bouncing for Bucks". A hilarious game-show presentation that involves luck, gambling, and putting big money at stake.

Good Quality Props, Poor Routine Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on September 1st, 2015
This was a real disappointment and I expected more of Dan Harlan. It really feels though with all the content he is working on (i.e. all the routines for the Tarbell series) that he just came up with this one overnight and rushed it out.

The stage routine is really boring and not what I expected from Dan. The audience participants look really bored and not very engaged, I do not think they smile once. And at the end, neither the audience nor the participants really seem very entertained. It really falls flat.

I was hoping that a close up routine would also be included, but unfortunately not. The original Daryl routine is far superior and far more entertaining. This just made we want to purchase that one instead.

The balls themselves are of very high quality and I do like the colour over the original black balls. But, the catch there is that it will be very hard to find a similar colour material to do the Daryl routine with these. You would basically need to re-colour these black to get a good match.

Overall, very overpriced for such a poor routine.

Bounce/Some Bounce Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on August 29th, 2015
The routines are fine and certainly well-taught and the balls look great but they're not exactly bounce/no bounce. They're more bounce/some bounce. In the past I've only used the smaller size. Those seem more "dead." It's possible that this extra little bounce in the "no bounce" ball is common in the larger diameter balls but, for me, it kind of ruins the effect. I'm sure this bounce can be covered presentationally but not with the presentation I use. I was hoping to move my close-up routine to the stage and get some advanced handling tips to boot. All I ended up doing was blowing forty bucks. If you're starting from scratch and like the effects you see on the trailer video then maybe you'll have a different experience. Dan Harlan is a good performer and a good teacher. I'm not knocking him, just pointing out something I wish I'd known before I spent the money.

I have found this trick the most useless piece of magic that I have purchased from penguin.
Large props.Low on the excitement scale.
Dan Harlan is a great presenter, but this is not his best.

Don't expect to perform this immediately Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on April 20th, 2016
First thing's first. The balls you receive (although red) is not remotely as shiny and new looking as the image shown. Rather, the balls you will receive have a dull red colour and you will need to buy a certain something else in order to coat them and make the balls look shiny and bright red.

The teachings from Dan Harlan is top notch as always. The effects themselves are as you see in the trailer. You will need to put your own spin to the effect to really get reactions and mileage from this effect.

Overall, this would've been a 3/4 star rating, but the fact that props you receive look so sub-par makes this only really worth 2 star. Considering you will have to invest time and money to buy other item/s to coat the balls in order for them to look nice and presentable. Unless you already have an idea/routine in mind (or like what you see in the trailer), stay away from this.

I've been hoping someone would get around to making a larger, more colorful ball to be seen from the stage and now they have!

Still a throw away. Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on January 2nd, 2016
I give Harlan credit for trying to breathe life into this, but his routine involves way too much effort and time for a payoff that is confusing and weak at best. At the end of the day, the balls are nice but this is at best still a throw away effect. Price should have been half of what it is.

A must have in your repertoire Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on October 8th, 2015
I personally use bounce no bounce on my professional magic show for Kids, I use my own routine, but the effect is the same. You can came up with your own ideas like Rick lax with the letter indicating when the ball bounces or not.

I recommend this trick as a filler, if you don't know what to filler is, then buy ken weber book maximum entertaining! Found here at penguin! (Just buy the book, is very good) It is important that you understand the trick is not an opener or a closer!


Overall, I recommend to have it, I think its a bit expensive but at the end is worth it!

Great Effect and Routine Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on August 11th, 2015
Received the product two days ago and am very happy with the quality of the balls. The two sets I received are red in color and are a great size for handling and large enough for stage use.
The routine described by Dan Harlan is really clever and great for stage acts. I look forward to adding this routine into my Adelaide Fringe Show next year.
Great product and excellent service by Penguin. The only down side is the price but for the quality and routine I would say it is worth it! :)
