No Way Manipulation
If you don't need a gimmick; why bother? This has always been a philosophy of Ned's magic. Here are several great classic tricks you can now perform impromptu. In this field you have to be "flexible," like when your props don't arrive at the airport when you do. Sometimes you just need to improvise! The following effects can be done totally impromptu and will save you in a pinch!
- Multiplying Super Balls (No shell)
