I went ahead and splurged on this one, and I'm glad that I did. I use it as an opener in my stage shows- first I produce a
silk and and poke it into my hand while I sprinkle confetti over it, telling the audience to keep their eye on the tip of the silk while I continue to sprinkle more confetti onto the tip of the silk. I then announce that I will make the silk vanish, and put the hand with the tip of the silk into my mouth (so that the tip is still showing)- this always gets a laugh and you can play it up. I then shake my finger back & forth and begin to pull the silk out of my mouth, only to the audiences' amazement it has now become a 50' mouth coil, which again I play up. Then very dramatically I take up all of the mouth coil and break it open revealing silk after silk after silk appearing from the coils- and then presto- a bouquet of flowers. It's very well made, the silks are plentiful and the effect is well worth the extra price over the other "silk fountains" on the market.
