I'll give you the price, and the effectivness on a scale of 1-10. One being the worst and 10 being the best. I'll also add some additional comments.

Price: 21.99 - Effectivness-3/10 - I give the Raven a 3 out of 10 only because the concept of the Raven is good, but I dont like the angles, and I dont like the gimmick. Plain and simple. Theres many who love it and some who hate it...Im not sure if theres many in the middle-I hate it and dont suggest it-Keep in mind these are just my opnions, you may think different.

Price: 16.99 - Effectivness: 9.5/10 - What can I say? Its Scotch and Soda...My favorite coin effect I have ever done. Adults absolutly love and I have gotten some kids thinking about it a little bit...Theres not much to say-The concept is awesome (and unlike Raven) It is made very well and worth ever penny you pay for it. Not too many people dont like this trick! Keep in mind these are just my opnions, you may think different. Josh

Price: 10.95 Effectivness: 7/10 - Now this is one of those tricks you'll love or hate, and you have to buy it to see. Its like a must to buy but you may not like it. Im kind of in the middle-Its a great effect, well explained in the book, easy to do, easy to prepare-My only complaint is that Blaine did it so its like SO COOL BECAUSE THE MASTER DAVID BLAINE DID IT! But all in all, I suggest you purchasing it and trying it out-Keep in mind these are just my opnions, you may think different. Josh

Price: 23.95 - Effectivness: 9/10 - Deep Astonishment...hmmm...I have heard people say they despise it but mosat have said they love it. I love it. I think its genious and my best card trick. ALthough it starts off slow, it builds up 'till the end where the climax hits you right in the face. I have not had one person figure it out...Its very very clever and enjoyable to perform. I cannot reccomend this one more, its pure genious-My congrats to Paul Harris for thinking this up-Keep in mind these are just my opnions, you may think different. Josh

Price: 33.99 - Effectivness: 4/10 - I recieved it, opened it, tried it out and loved it. But as time went along I grew to not like it very much-Its overpriced and levitation is way ovverated now-a-days. Everyone knows the balduchii and they suspect your doing just that behind your jacket. The gimmick is clever and smart, but like I said for the gimmick, its overpriced. Not many people fell for it, so I dont suggest it. Keep in mind these are just my opnions, you may think different. Josh

Price: 15.99 - Effectivness: 8/10 - Its a good trick. Nicely made, looks good, not good for more then 3 people-Its tough for the spectators to see it far away, tough to figure out, all in all a g-r-e-a-t trick which I reccomend. Keep in mind these are just my opnions, you may think different. Josh

Price: 3.99 - Effectivness: 10/10 - You cant get much better then this for 3.99-The reactions I got from it were priceless, I would have paid 10 for it. The reactions I got from doing this were some better then Scotch and Soda, thats how good it is. Come on people 3.99, check it out you wont regret it!!!! Its easy and self working and cheap, I men how can it get much better? Keep in mind these are just my opnions, you may think different. Josh

Price: 9.99 - Effectivness: 7 or 8/10 - Its no that impressive, sometimes my spectators dont even follow whats goig on but for thoe who do its a great effect and a great price. Its worth a try for a 10 dollar bill. I suggest trying this one, its a good effect for those who understand it. All you need to know how to do is palm a coin! Keep in mind these are just my opnions, you may think different. Josh

Love Deep Astonishment, Scotch and Soda, and The "Notorious" Raven. Healed and Sealed is an effect that is simple but i never get around to doing it......maybe this summer when i am at a barbeque i'll start doing it again.

I like the Raven okay but I see where you're coming from. I think the best effect with it is changing the nickle to a mini nickle. I did it last night and my friend was speechless. But yeah, there are some things that bother me about it. The only thing about the reviews is I think Cardtoon was lowered to 13.50 but other than that thanks :) Plus I liked seeing a review for Wild Levitation.

WOW.... Thanks a lot for the reviews!!! They were very well organized and easy to follow. It is interesting to get such specifics on a trick. As for Wild Lev. I thought you loved this trick. On other posts i remember saying that you had no regrets and everyone was amazed and things like that.
