Silver Scepter - magic

Over the years, many versions of the Rising Rod have appeared, and my first experience with it was a pencil which rose from its leather case. I understand that a plastic model has been put out and indeed it did break when it was accidentally dropped. The late Eddie Joseph used a wand and one or two stunts described herein may possibly be credited to him. My own slender model has been admired many a time, and it is only after repeated requests that I have decide to release it, together with my routine, which provides some comedy, and reasoning behind all that I do.

The rod is designed to last a lifetime, the 'knobs' have been specially made to work smoothly and flat elastic has been used because it gives better results than the round elastic normally used. Most models usually have only one 'operative' end, which meant the performer had to keep track of it. With this rod though you can use either end and thisadds to the effect when repeating a 'rise', the rod is turned over and the other end is taken in hand. There are four phases. The rise from a handkerchief, the rise from the bag supplied, horizontal movements left and right from the same bag, and finally shooting out of the bag high into the air.


Wand length: 15 inches

I purchased the Silver Scepter to use in a new show I am working on. Although visually good, ultimately I am very disappointed. In theory, the flat elastic should make it move smoother, but due to the type used, it just gets caught on the wand. The description says "There are four phases. The rise from a handkerchief, the rise from the bag supplied, horizontal movements left and right from the same bag, and finally shooting out of the bag high into the air." but only the rise from the bag provided is given in the instructions. I'm certain I will be able to work it out, but as it's implied there are four stages to the routine, I was disappointed to only have part of it there. Not a bad prop, just mediocre.

This is a very disappointing silver scepter on multiple levels, especially after having used the old George Blake model for years. The wand itself, while shiny, is a larger diameter than the old wand, and made of lighter, cheaper feeling metal. The elastic in mine is too wide (as noted in another review) and too short. The width causes it to catch on the edge of the wand, and the short length doesn't allow enough tension, both of which reduce the jumping action of the scepter so it's pretty much unusable.
Sadly, I made the mistake of not opening it until it was too late to return, or I would have sent it back.

Yeah...these are trash. I’d have been better off putting in the 20 minutes and 4 dollars worth of supplies. I mean...it is what it says it is but the ‘pearls’ at the ends were chipped and flaking and the ‘flat smooth elastic is not strong enough to actually do the thing...
