Phanto-Block (Tenyo)

Effect: Magician shows two green tubes with 2 holes in each. The smaller tube is put in the bigger tube, a metal stick is put through the tubes, locking the smaller tube inside - yet the tube escapes (falls through) the metal stick.

Everything may be handed out for examination. Required Skills: almost self-working

Comment: this close-up illusion is a miracle to everyone I've ever shown it - definitely a must-get for everyone. The only downside is that (due to being manufactured of ugly green plastic) the props look cheap and cheesy - probably a subtle way of saying 'no, this ain't gimmicked'.
