A double magical treat!
It's amazing when what you do matches what your spectator does- but how about THIS one!
Here's the effect: You start with two transparent tubes with removable black covers. You also show an empty folded paper bag. Your spectator chooses one of the tubes (no force). The spectator slips a black cover over his tube and puts it down, far away from you, and then he does the same with your tube.
You then produce eight small balls- two red, two yellow, two blue and two green. The balls are put in the paper bag and thoroughly mixed.
The spectator and you now take turns in secretly removing a ball from the bag. Without looking at the color of the balls, each of you places each ball in your respective tubes, which have the black covers on them so no one can see the balls inside.
It seems rather unlikely that each of you has four DIFFERENT color balls in your tubes. But the first big surprise comes next: the spectator lifts the sleeve off his tube for everyone to see. He has one ball of each color in his tube!
Now for the second surprise: without any manipulation, you also lift the sleeve off your tube - of course, you also have one ball of each color in your tube. But the balls in both tubes are in the EXACT SAME order!
Here's the best part. You don’t have to force anything. The effect can also be performed close up or in front of a larger audience.
And you get a LOT with this one! The trick is supplied with everything you need- the tubes, the sleeves, the balls, and even a very nice storage bag. Plus it comes with with two professional routines, one for childrens' entertainers, written by Jemermy le Podevin, the other one for shows for adults!
Overall height of tubes with base is about 7 inches (18 cm). The balls have a diameter of about 1.5 inches (38 mm), which is just right for them to be completely hidden in the hand.
