This is a beautiful wand that actually has function, too.
It's a bit pricey, so it's not for everyone.
Personally, I am impressed with the look, the feel and the function- I grabbed one for myself!
It's called the Signature Wand because it's actually got the designer's signature engraved in the wood shaft of the wand.
The selling price will probably be $34.99.
It is a limited edition, so I don't know how many I can get.
Let me show you what it can do, and then using the Comments form below, please give me your opinion.
Beautiful wand, but very overpriced for something that comes from China. And there is really nothing magical about it. All of the magic is in your well-done routine. So, while I like a good looking wand and it makes the magician look good, this is not for me.
I agree with Tom. Perhaps you can change the focus: Put the emphasis on the routine. Sell the routine and say the wand is included in the price. So, you are selling your routine and providing the wand as a bonus, rather than the other way around. I do not think that do so is dishonest. After all, the routine is really magical and worth the price.
Correction to the above: I do not think that to do so is dishonest.

I agree that selling the routine complete with gaff is better than marketing the wand. Perhaps you with your creativity and experience can come up with other routines that would work with the wand to justify a higher price point.
Seems like a nice looking wand. Perhaps a close up of the wand would be a nice selling point. However, the magic is with the magician, the wand is a tool that a bit pricey. Sorry, but don't think it is a must have unless one is a collector of wands.
The consensus is the value is in the routine and the wand is merely a prop. Sell the routine.
