The Shufton Ultimate Floating Match

Beware: This effect is a KILLER!

"After 20 years I am thrilled to see such wonderful advances with my little floating match concept. Great job Steve!"

- Ben Harris

These effects are completely self-contained, can be done ANYWHERE, ANYTIME, and are very EASY to do! My claim: This is the BEST, most COMPELLING, simplest close up floating match effect on the market today! NO HOOKUPS! ALWAYS READY! COMPLETELY SELF-CONTAINED!

Every time I show this effect, it leaves the spectator STUNNED!

Each one of these items is meticulously hand made with close attention to every detail. Each one is inspected and tested to make sure it is PERFECT! These are sturdy, and with PROPER CARE, they will last indefinitely. After HUNDREDS of performances, I can assure you they are BUILT TO LAST!

(Book Version)

Effect: Magician displays and opens a book of matches. After removing a match, the Magus explains that matches hold a "charge" similar to electricity. She/he demonstrates that the removed match will readily come in contact with the other matches in the book. By simply rubbing the match on the other matches in the pack (or on his sleeve, etc.) he claims that the match is now charged and will resist the other matches. The Magician raises the match above the other matches in the pack and releases his hold on the match over the matchbook with all but one finger touching it, and it remains suspended! The Magus explains that "it seems the match may be attached to my finger - until I pull my finger away!" and actions match the words! The match remains suspended and floats above the matchbook! By waving a toothpick under, behind, over and ALL AROUND the floating match, the Magus demonstrates that there can be no possible means of support! He then plucks the match out of the air, demonstrates again that there can be no possible support by passing the match through the area in which it floated, and then he/she once again causes the match to float! If desired, matchbook, match and toothpick can be handed out for examination!

(Box Version)

Effect: Magician displays a box of matches and completely removes the drawer. The spectator is invited to remove two matchsticks from the drawer (or the magician can do it) and hands one to the magician. The Magus explains (for example) that wooden matches can magically hold a "charge" similar to electricity. He demonstrates that the wooden matchstick will readily come in contact with the other matches in the drawer. By simply rubbing the match on his sleeve, (or blowing on it, etc.) he claims that the match is now magically charged and will resist the other matches.

The Magician releases his hold on the matchstick above the matchbox drawer with all but one finger touching it, and it remains suspended! The Magus explains that "it seems the matchstick may be attached to my finger - until I pull my finger away!" and actions match the words! The matchstick remains suspended and floats above the matchbox! By waving another match under, behind, over and all around the floating matchstick, the Magus demonstrates that there can be no possible means of support. He then plucks the matchstick out of the air, demonstrates again that there can be no possible support by passing the match through the area in which it floated, and if desired he can once again cause the match to float! The matchbox is again reassembled and shown all around. If desired, matchbox and matches can be handed out for examination!

These effects are COMPLETELY SELF CONTAINED, and always ready to go, requiring NO RESET or setup of any kind!

This is not the cheaper match on a playing card effect. There are no suspicious moves, no bending of cards or other out of place manipulations - this is the CADILLAC of close up levitation effects. The time put into each unit and the careful meticulous construction and attention to detail will not be found in ANY similar effect. Most importantly, this will stun your audience! This is a professional prop of the highest quality - for the magician that wants to use the very best. Great difficulties had to be overcome to bring you this - THE ULTIMATE FLOATING MATCH!
