Over six months in the making, Whit Haydn and Chef Anton have created the perfect shells for any Three Shell Game routine. Including design enhancements and tips from real working pros like Chanin, Eddie Joseph and others, these shells are perfectly weighted and balanced.
Whit's shell design incorporates all of the little-known features of the true street artist. It is this that makes the use of the shells easier and more deceptive. These features include a slight curve of the bottom of the shell making the exit of the pea smooth and effortless.
The entire outside back of each shell is rounded at a specific height that causes the pea to be pulled under the shell when the shell is moved back into contact. The inside back of each shell has a deep, flat, nearly perpendicular wall that prevents the shell from rolling on the pea when it is loaded and released. At the back of the shell is a slight indentation that looks like the spot at which the twig would have been connected. This indentation gives the pea a little more room to exit the shell. The front of the shells interior is angled so that the pea can be easily felt and controlled for moves like the roll flash.
The Golden Shells are cast in heavy pewter and then heavily plated in 24 karat gold and includes shot glass, drawstring bag and the perfect peas (both hard and soft rubber).
Also available is magnetic - This set of shells looks identical to the normal Golden Shells set, but each shell contains a powerful rare-earth magnet which is molded into the pewter, opening up many new possibilities for three shell routines.
"This set of shells and peas is going to be for the shell game what the Paul Fox cups were for the cups and balls." - Johnny Thompson
