It took Wil Golden 7 years to develop this idea and finally it is back!
NO ringing bottle!
NO searching for a catch!
NO chugging liquid!
You can even do it Blindfolded!
This is a classic effect performed by Lance Burton and other great magicians.
The magician displays a bottle and a glass. He begins to pour liquid into the glass and as it pours he simply lets go of the glass and it stays there floating in mid-air as the liquid continues to pour.
The gimmick is completely flawless and will fit any kind of bottle: champagne, wine, porto, tequila, beer, Coke, Sprite, Pepsi, Dr. Pepper and many others.
Do not confuse this with any other version. This is truly and without doubt the best system in the world!
Each item is handcrafted by Wil. The Super Aerial Glass is an incredible and very visual effect that will enhance any stage act. It comes ready to perform with a minimum of practice.
Read the reviews:
“Wil your new Aerial Glass Suspension is pure genius! Part James Bond and part deVinci! I have owned almost every airborne glass that has been marketed from Sparks to Ray Lum’s Ultimate Airborne Glass and this is far superior to them all in every way! From its silence to ease of use you have created a true winner that I believe any ‘worker’ needs to have. In addition, your customer service is second to none and is truly appreciated in today’s marketplace! The magic community owes you a big thanks and it can start with me.”

“It’s a perfect trick. It’s very fast and very clean.”
– Juliana Chen
“Your version of Airborne is a huge improvement of the original. Your unique method is much easier and cleaner than the original. Your props are also of superior quality and would be a great addition to any stage performers show. Fantastic job.”
– Rick Del Vecchio (Chairman and talent coordinator for Magic on the Beach/Florida State Convention)
“This is PERFECT!!!”
Jorge Blas (Spain)
“The best aerial glass effect I’ve seen! No hooks to fidget with, Wil Golden’s aerial glass is innovative, 21st century and well worth the cost of owning one. I have purchased a couple because each time I show it to a friend they just have to have it and I can’t seem to get it back. The closest thing to having a glass float by real magic that I have ever seen. Made one by one with painstaking detail, Wil’s aerial glass combines his talent and love for the art of magic and culminates in this work of art – the aerial glass.”
– Maria Ibanez (President SAM)
“I have been performing the ‘Air Born’ effect since Presto first showed it to me back in 1978, and I have never come across such an elevation (if you will) in it’s execution and engineering. It practically works itself. Wil, as loosely as the word is used today in the magic trade, this is truly an ‘innovation’ on the par with the Walsh appearing cane. Thanks.”
– Phelston Jones
“Wil this is excellent! I need another NOW!!! This is the best new product on the market. Everybody I have shown your Aerial Glass to thinks this is the most amazing thing they have ever seen. I believe this will be the next classic effect in magic.”
– Sonny Fontana
“Many years ago, I owned a version of John Fabjance’s Airborne Glass. It wasn’t the most reliable prop. I practiced and persevered, but eventually gave up on the effect. On the Denny & Lee website, the following problems are outlined, and they all seem familiar to me: ‘The weight rattled loudly in the can or bottle, The ‘hook’ was not only dangerous, but unreliable. If you missed the correct spot, the glass would tilt. The releasing of the hook after the effect was sometimes troubling. Breaking of the mono filament was common.’ So when this latest model arrived, I expected more of the same. I was, however, pleasantly surprised. Here is a bit more from Denny Haney, and I am quoting this because he speaks the truth: ‘…here is an Airborne Glass Suspension that has been totally redesigned to work right, every time and has eliminated the problems. This hand made device will fit into the neck of almost any bottle. There is no rattling weight inside the bottle or can. Nothing to hook or unhook. Perform it anywhere, anytime. This entire unit operates on a system of brass tubing, springs and magnets and works like a dream. No hang ups, no misses, no breakage.’ The glass is eight inches in height and is made of a thick, durable plastic, with a clear base and a smoky white body. It doesn’t look cheap. It does appear, from an audience viewpoint, as if it were made from glass. The gimmick that fits into the bottle is very well made. It has a sturdy feel to it and I don’t get the impression that it is going to break anytime soon. The working is practically automatic because of a little magnet that engages the glass. There is no need to look down as it connects. Disconnecting is just as easy – just a tug while holding the glass. The instructions for this are minimal: a single sheet with seven briefly written steps, accompanied by six illustrations. I only needed to check the instructions for clarification on a couple of points. Otherwise, I didn’t need them. Each unit is handmade by Wil Golden, so supplies are limited. At $140, this is not a cheap prop. However, very often you get what you pay for in this world, and Golden’s version of this classic stands head-and-shoulders above any other version of the effect that I have seen. If you already use a glass suspension and are happy with it, fine. But if you are looking for one that works automatically, 100 percent of the time, and that you could even do blindfolded , then check this out.”
– Peter Duffie (Magic Magazine)
“Wil Golden’s Aerial Glass is a highly crafted device. It’s very well made contrary to it’s fragile looking nature. I can’t wait to add it to my drunk girl character’s repertoire of what not to do when intoxicated. She just won’t accept that it’s happening to her.”
– Taylor Martin (Andrea Merlyn)
“The Airbonre Glass effect has always been an audience pleaser. Lance Burton has been using it for years. There have always been problems with the design of the effect. They have been cheaply made for mass distribution. The weight rattled loudly in the can or bottle. The “hook” was not only dangerous but unreliable. If you missed the correct spot, the glass would tilt. The releasing of the hook after the effect was sometimes troubling. Breaking of the mono filament was common. A great effect…just cheaply made. NOW, here is an Airborne Glass Suspension that has been totally redesigned to work right, every time and has eliminated the problems. This hand made device will fit into the neck of almost any bottle. There is no rattling weight inside the bottle or can. Nothing to hook or unhook. Perform it anywhere, anytime. This entire unit operates on a system of brass tubing, springs and magnets and works like a dream. No hang ups, no misses, no breakage. If you already do the Airborne Glass and are tired of replacing them, this is what you need. The work and design on this unit is something to admire. You will be amazed at the ingenuity of this device. These are NOT mass produced. Each unit is handmade with care and are limited in supply. This will be the last Airborne Glass you will ever buy and the only one you will ever need.”

“Just wanted to let you know the Mirage Illusion Aerial Glass has been performed in Berlin, Germany last week for a corporate event and we made it look like the VP of Europe, Africa and Middle East made the glass float during his champagne toast for the company’s 50th Anniversary. I also personally used it for an award dinner in Orlando the week before last and it went incredibly smooth. Again, making it look like the Executive Director was making the glass float during the champagne toast. Thanks for making an awesome product that takes all the ‘chance’ out of the traditional floating glass. The Mirage Illusion Aerial Glass will become the prop of choice for all future Bubble Experiences from Experience. As we expand over the next few months, we will be purchasing several more and would really like to have a glass closer to a champagne flute and without a colored stem, if possible. Would be happy to work with you on this as you make this option available to the magic world.”

“My name is Rand Woodbury and I have never reviewed a piece of magical equipment in my life. And to be honest, I have never really wanted to review anything. That is until today. I, personally, have never really found this effect to be mind blowing. And that probably because I have never done a bottle act or anything with glasses. However, every version of this trick I have seen just left me thinking ‘whatever’. There is just no other way, for me, to express it. They all had something I didn’t like about them. Well, now there is a version of that trick, from Wil Golden, that fixes every flaw in the idea. What do I mean? Follow me here: no hooks, no weights, no ringing or noisy bottle, no searching for the catch (at all), no chugging liquid. OK, what gives? Mr. Golden’s version of the effect took seven (7) years in development. Check! Mr. Golden makes every single, by hand, himself. Check! It was put into my hands today and I could not believe how easy it was to work or there is no possible way of MISSING the glass – period!!! It is simply a perfect version of this trick. Hey, no missing and you are left CLEAN, with nothing to hide. If I didn’t know how it worked, I would have never figured it out. I can only think that Wil looked at every other version out there and said, ‘How do we get rid of this flaw?’, over the past seven years. And by using really original, conceptual improvements… he simply figured out the best version this effect. My hat is off to Wil’s ingenuous, new, and WAY IMPROVED version of a legendary effect. Five stars! If you do this effect – this version is better. If you have never done this effect, you can – one second after you take it out of the box. I do mean WOW!”
– Rand Woodbury
“The Airborne glass and bottle gimmick that you have designed and constructed is fabulous! I absolutely love it and that is why I’d like to have another. It is so simple to use and can even be done blind folded. I’ve shown it to just about every magician that has stepped through my door and they too have been impressed with the overall quality. Rest assured, this is a winner, Congratulations!”
– Jason Byrne
“Finally a perfect method for performing the Airborne Glass. I feel that Wil’s method will work for me 100% of the time.”
“This is a great idea and the best system to perform the Airborne glass on the market today.”
