This is an interesting Hot Rod. It's a 4 sided wooden stick that is the right size & has the right feel so doing the paddle move is easy. The colored dots on the rod are painted. When the paddle move is done, the spectator appears to see ALL FOUR SIDES of the rod. That's because you do the move by holding the rod on the “diagonal”. The gives the illusion of seeing ALL 4 SIDES.
You get 2 sticks. The yellow one is ungimmicked. The dots on the other stick are painted so that each dot has two colors; yellow appears on 1/2 of each dot, while the other half of each dot has a unique color.
So when you do the paddle move by holding the stick on the diagonal, the spectator is really seeing 1 side that is 'normal', while the other side (which also looks normal) is really a series of colored dots — 1/2 of each dot is yellow, and the other half of each dot has normal colors. Depending on the way you hold the paddle will determine if the spectator will see ALL YELLOW DOTS ON FOUR SIDES, OR ALL DIFFERENT COLORED SPOTS ON ALL FOUR SIDES.
The illusion is perfect because of the angle at which this is done. After doing the standard routine, simply switch rods so the spectator gets the one with yellow dots on all 4 sides. Instructions are not included — but we know you'll be able to do it if you can do the paddle move.
