Suggestions for "pocket" tricks?

Postby Bill Marquardt » December 14th, 2014, 12:23 pm

I bought my first Tenyo items recently, The Great Escape and Security Lock. I decided on these two because they seem like good things to carry around in a jacket pocket in order to entertain friends on occasion. The quality seems good for the price, so I am interested in obtaining similar type items.

Does anyone have suggestions on currently available Tenyo items that can fit in a pocket and have a good impact? I am not interested in becoming a collector, I would like items to use when someone says "Show me something." I have always carried around color changing knives and coins, which are great, but am looking for something "new."

What items do you have that work well for you?

Hi Bill. I am glad you asked that question and I would be very happy to respond.

Crazy Spots, Flash Dice, Super Sponge Balls, Zig-Zag Cig, Invisible Zone, Animation Frame, and Crystal Cleaver are all excellent Tenyo pocket tricks. You don't need a table for Crazy Spots, Zig Zag Cig, Invisible Zone, and Super Sponge Balls but should have a table for Animation Frame, Flash Dice, and Crystal Cleaver.

By the way, you can get all of the above from me. If you have any questions about any of the items, please feel free to ask me. I would be more than willing to help!

I have had great success with Magical Sneakers and Clean Cut; that is, if we are talking about items that don't need a table.

If you don't want a table to work off of, you could also work with: Ghost Pet, Ultimate Shocking Pen, Flash Dice, Invisible Zone, Ghost Card, Vault Vision, Zone Infinity,

Thanks for all of the suggestions. I appreciate the responses. I will research them and likely purchase a few later this month.

I would not recommend Ghost Card because it's finicky.

I will say that I dont have Ghost Card, but I was thinking of using it as a finisher in a routine. but have been slowly leaning towards Ultimate Shocking Pen.

But if i may ask, how is Ghost Card finicky?

The gimmick consists of somewhere around 50 small slivers that form a full King of Clubs. Handling it neatly and keeping them in line is tricky.

Oh man, that doesn't sound friendly for a strolling routine or a pocket trick at all. Thank you for the info!
