Since I didn't particularly like the Vernet Zombie I decided to write about Uday's. This ball is a
little larger than the average zombie ball and it is beautiful, a chrome/mirror like finish that I
thought I might not like because it might reflect the gimmick (wire) but it did not. It worked like
a charm. The foulard that came with the package was beautiful too although you do need to iron it
to take out the folds.
The only draw back that I could find in this product was that
because the ball has such a highly reflective surface, you have to be sure and remember to wipe away
any finger prints on the ball before performance time. If you order Uday's Zombie Ball you will
like it a lot too.
I DO recommend that you pick up a DVD on Zombie. The DVD I have is
"World's Greatest Magic: the Secrets of the Zombie Ball". It's great (5 stars)!
Magic is a wonderful place for all my performance needs!
I'm looking at getting a new Zombie as my old one is dented.

What is the diameter of Uday's zombie ball ? Standard ball size is usually 4" inches or 4.25" inches ... is this one 5" inches or slightly more ?
You note it has "a chrome/mirror like finish" ... does the seam show up clearly or is it invisible from a distance of say 5' or 6' ft. ? (I doubt I would ever perform it any closer than that ... I don't care if the seam shows up if I'm staring at it from 12 inches away , but with some distance I would hope the seam is invisible, so the audience's impression is that it's a solid ball .
