Rattle Sticks by Oriental Magic

The three miniature sticks are shown. Two of them are solid and the third rattles when you shake it. The performer puts the three sticks on the table and slowly moves them around, inviting the audience to guess the position of the rattling wand. Whatever position they guess, they are always wrong. The trick comes complete with instructions. The lid of the box tells us that this is Oriental Magic’s No. 6 item. The sample number on the bottom of the box is 8180. Made in Japan.
