Dan Ross- 5/25/17 "Cane's great!" Bob Atherholt- 5/25/17 "It is a joy working with this cane. It loves being scraped!" Scott Bell-"Over the years I have spent way too much money and time in pursuit of the "right" cane. More recently, I have been very happy using cane from the Magic Reed. It is a great relief to my sanity and pocketbook trusting that someone out there knows how to find great cane. I honestly don't have the skills to make decent reeds out of mediocre cane so finding cane like this with the right texture and durability is critical in my process. Jim Mason- 2/27/17 " I got your cane and have been trying it and I really like it! It is a hard cane that acts like a soft one! I find that it really projects and can take a thin tip but stay "dark." It doesn't get grainy or chirpy like many hard canes do when you make the corners of the tip really thin. I will buy more!" Sherry Sylar- 3/3/17 "Thank you for sharing the best cane I have seen in 20 years". Dan W-"...The yield of straight pieces is very high. The texture, I would describe as tough and resilient rather than actually hard, which I usually correlate with being brittle. It consistently produces a fat, dark core..." Beth Aiken- 5/2/17 "I found good pieces from every tube so far. They gouge very nicely and evenly. I have had good luck turning reed blanks into very responsive reeds. Thank you for letting me know about this wonderful cane". MJL (San Francisco) "I made 10 out of 10 great reeds from your cane. How much more can I have?" Peter Cooper- Colorado-"Great cane. I would like to buy three pounds for my students". Mickenna Kellar- "Nancy King has been raving about the quality of your cane. I must try some". Dorothy Darlington- "I haven't seen anything like this in years".
