The Hot Rod is undeniably one of the Top 5 pocket effects of all time.
This 1986 booklet from Robbins covers some of the better paddle move variations, and then goes on to offer different effects with the Hot Rod, like smash climax, turning the rod into a pretzel, vanishes with pulls, etc.
Book maybe should have stopped at 39 ideas with a Hot Rod, because doing a Miser's Dream with Hot Rods is just plain silly.... But that mis-step aside, there's some interesting and useful ideas here.
See the Table of contents photo to get an idea of what sort of stuff you'll find in this excellent little booklet. (Not to mention, you will realize that you are not the only person in the world who does not draw hands very well -- the illustrations are nothing to get excited about, but do provide a bit of clarity).
New-old dealer inventory, not previously owned, and in mint, new condition.
(no hot rod included -- use your own. But you already knew that, right?)
