Hacking Sack & Bolt
Magic download (video) by Curtis Kam ($12.00)
Sach's dice routine is a revered classic of close-up magic. It's a lovely routine showcasing pure sleight of hand, but it is rarely done well because it's rarely taught well. Curtis Kam's approach is the best we've seen, because the move is done in and out of the SPECTATOR'S hand. This small but critical improvement solves the main weakness of the classic routine--that everyone suspects the dice are gimmicked. By allowing the spectator to examine and hold the dice between every magical change, you essentially eliminate this suspicion. This is very smart thinking. Curtis has some wonderful touches on this routine, and this download is the perfect way to learn a close-up routine you can do that requires no cards, no coins, and no table.
As a BONUS, you also get Bolt: a very cool, simple effect in which a bolt eerily twists out of a nut. Made from things you can find at a hardware store for just a few dollars, this is a perfect interlude piece to perform between lengthier effects. Are you fooled? We were!

Brian P. asks: I have a smaller version of this, and I always felt that the bolt vibrates too much.
Is this issue solved due to the larger size of the bolt?
