Anywhere! I've had people touch my ear, lips, nose, eyelid, and many other places and still recieve the shock! (Please guys, get your minds out of the gutter! ;-))

What...other places are we talking about here Vlaraway? :lol:

It'll take me a bit of saving. I'm just always scared because it's breakable.

LOL... But, I am not going to lie; it IS breakable... BUT with the PETS, it is 100% completely safe for your ET, and can even still be applied to a broken ET gimmick! You can't beat that!

I know this is kind of a stupid question, but how big is the shock?

My shoes are ready for pick-up on Friday. I intend on introducing the trick mildly at a Bürgerfest on Sunday.

This is a perfect preamble because all week we have had some fantastic lightning storms. I can merely allude to the electrical energy I received during the week during my mentalism patter.

This just sounds risky to me. A gimmick that's $200, needs special shoes, breaks easily, has to be concealed with long pants, doesn't work on all surfaces and is hard to turn on? I'll stick with sleight of hand. Even though it would make for some really sick "devilish" effects.

Thankfully Penguin has brought the cost down to $150.00, if it was a penny higher I would not have bought it.

I have not used it in performance yet, but I anticipate some strong reactions and it is a heck of a lot safer than Ultra Smoke 2000 which hovers around the same price range.

Also consider Criss Angel's Levitation. To just learn the effect you have to shell out $99.00, and then you have to make the gimmick which I understand needs shoes and pants and perhaps a professional seamstress to put it together. AND – it is very restrictive on performing angles and you are limited to when and where you can show this.

There are many cumbersome and expensive gimmicks out there today and technology is making more available.

True - Nothing is more pure and genuine than Sleight of Hand, but couple that with a bit of theatricality and the occasional flash and you can really becomes a miracle worker in the spectator's eyes.

(The shoe maker only charged me € 4.00 euro to prepare my shoes).

Well, look at it this way... If you use the PETS, the outcomes will be totally different! PETS doesnt break easily, and allows it to be turned on even easier!

Try not to look at all the negatives of an effect, and look at the positives... I can assure you that EVERY effect (slight of hand included) has its down faults...

Both... I use it for mentalism all the time... I just have them choose a card, remember it, put it back in the deck, and have them 'transmit the thought from their mind to mine by the touch of a finger'...

There are many effects that come with it...

And you can not do it in shorts... And any shoe will work with PETS... But it is limited with the other 2 setups...
