Upper Echelon Chinese Sticks
These are essentially a handmade set of sticks of the highest quality with a silky smooth, fail-safe design than insure that they will work for years.
Jay Leslie builds these one set at a time by hand and adjusts and fine-tunes every set he makes.
Unlike any other set of Chinese Sticks out there, this set is designed with a very unique ‘socko finish", where the strings suddenly become 5-7 feet long (depending on when yours were made).
I say these are upper echelon sticks because they rank right up there with the Okito-Nielsen Sticks and the Gen Grant Sticks as being the best of the best.
If you can find one……buy it…….
They may no longer be made any more….

Heavy Brass and Ultra Convicing Moves
Jay Lesilie is a guy that produces a lot of magic, but is sometimes a bit spotty with the quality. These beautiful brass coins are one of the best things he produces, they are so heavy and well made that you just enjoy holding them.
If you watch the routine that Jay does with these bad boys you will be amazed, for a little bit of effort you have an amazing routine that is hard to beat.
Jay’s other really beautiful effects are his first $link(2004,Rib Block) and the $link(1313,Gold Plated Vault Plus), all very high quality.

It is Portable and Affordable and Works, but a bit flimsy.
I have always loved the card sword effect and when I saw Jay Leslie advertising this effect, I thought I’d give it a go. The size of the sword makes is suitable for smaller gatherings that a fullsize card sword is just not suitable for. The method is different from other card swords I have seen, and works well. I don’t believe you would be doing this for close-up, but for parlour or stage it would be fine.
However there are two problems with it: you cannot show the sword from all sides, even in motion, and the sword itself is a bit flimsy and I personally would have preferred to pay extra for a slightly more solid sword.
It is still a worthy attempt, and you should find yourself using this.
