The principle is as old as the hills. The prop is as modern as it gets.
A Sharpie marker laid on your palm slowly RISES until it’s standing on end! It stands there, defying gravity for a moment and then slowly DECENDS!
Based on a time tested and proven principle dating back to the Indian Fakirs, Steve Fearson has redesigned the Zenith Pencil gimmick and integrated it into a Sharpie.
We’re so confident you’ll be impressed with the new design, we’ll even show you the gimmick before you buy. Take a good look at this picture:

That’s a close up, unretouched photo of the gimmick. Can’t see it?
EXACTLY. The gimmick is virtually INVISIBLE. The pen can be used as a normal pen, you’ll almost forget the gimmick is there. But it is there. When you need it.
- No Threads
- No Wires
- No Magnets
- No Moving Parts
- No Lighting Restrictions
- Nothing to reset or replace.
These are just a few of the things that make Zenith one of the most practical levitation/suspension effects you can perform.
The effect also lends itself to some risque’ humor should you decide to go that route. Use it as a lie detector. Or a hottie detector. With a little imagination you can get a lot of milage out of this nifty prop.
This effect can be combined with G-Sharp, the Balancing Sharpie to create a truly baffling routine.
