A deluxe version of a popular classic mindreading effect, with a different method than you'd expect!
You show five brass rods, each with a different color set of stripes. In secret, your spectator selects one of the rods and places it in a small brass tube. She is asked to place the lid on the tube, and also asked to hide the remaining rods in a pocket or purse, etc. Without touching the tube, you will be able to instantly tell which color stripes are on the rod that was selected and placed in the tube!
This method is simple to learn, but really clever, and will even fool most magicians!
THIS DEMO IS FROM THE MANUFACTURER:
You could make a knockout routine out of using TWO DIFFERENT mentalism rods effects, one after the other, if they work differently. Often, when you do a great trick like this, your spectator will ask you to "do it again". Since the second time, the spectator is aware of what to look for, you could be in danger of revealing the trick. But not if the second trick works differently! For example, you could first use Alchemy Vision, then "repeat" the effect, but this time using the Color Divination Rods. This will REALLY stump those who think they had the first effect figured out!
