Is there an effect in your repertoire that you don't really like, and truth-be-told would stop doing but the reaction you get is just too strong to not do it?

If it wasn't so expensive, probably Doublecross. I will definitely pick it up one day when it's on sale, but tbh it doesn't really seem like such a big deal to me. Spectators go nuts over it.

I don't do anything if I haven't found a way to make it interesting or relevant to me. Ideally, there will be some twist in it (can be presentational) that will make it feel like something only I could do in this way.

There's a lot I don't do.

I am neither selfless enough nor professional enough to go around doing tricks I don't like just because they work.

Nothing specific, but anything that requires lugging around cumbersome props. Like Chris, I'm not interested in anything that I don't like personally. Otherwise I won't properly sell the effect, and that'd be a let down for the spectator as well as myself.

That's an interesting point about it being a letdown or you might say lose-lose proposition.

It has been mentioned here that Eugene Burger hated sponge balls but would acquiesce and use them because his audiences loved them so much.
