I was wondering about this trick. It looks so sweet, and I am seriously considering buying it. I just dont want to invest that amount of money for a crap trick. Is it as good as it looks?? Can it be done impromtu?? And is the method easily detected?? Thanks.

Yes, yes, no. In that order. There's nothing wrong with paying a fair price for an item that you will use. It cost DC about $100,000 to develop 'Flying' and guess what, it's a gimmick. I'm not going to get into an arguement over gimmicked vs non-gimmicked magic. I do both and feel that they compliment each other very well. It's the person, not the effect that has the greatest impact on your audience.

Huh? I never said anything bad about gimmicks or sleight of hand. I just said I wouldn't pay so much for one effect. I would rather buy DVD's or maybe about 7 gimmicks so I could have a whole new routine, rather than just one new trick. Go for it if you have 90$ to blow, but if I were you I would get DVD's or maybe about 10 gimmicks.
