(Grant's 1962 Strato-Spheres revisited by Jim
You can begin this routine with the Glass Vase and Tube
above, change three colored silks into three plastic Pit Balls,
and then go right on with the old Strat-O-Sphere routine where
one ball passes through the others. Finally, the red ball is
taken out of the tube and vanished. It reappears back between the
other two balls.
So what's new? The vanish of the red Pit Ball for one thing -
no more "Gung-Ho Box!" Also missing from my version of
this trick is the usual wooden base. It is not needed, but may be
added if you feel you must have one for the sake of tradition.
The use of the Glass Vase allows for use of larger 3 inch Pit
Balls. Learning to make your own Tube
Covers also allows you to change the Tube colors and decorations
for each season or occasion.
