I saw the demo video now for about 20 times, and it was just simply amazing..

But, there was one thing that was a little suspicious about this trick,

and that is when Oz pierce the bill in the center and unfold the bill..

When he does it, he doesn't show the full-front view of it..

He just holds it sideways and that's what i'm kind of confused about..

So, what my question is, "Can You Actually Show the Front Fully, once you Pierce the Bill??"

If this question leads to the gimmick somehow, just tell me and I'll erase it.. T_T

(Hope that doesn't happen.. :wink: )

what u see in the video is what you can really see although i think that Oz doesnt make the best performance on the trick.

Do U mean that you can show the spectators the full-front view when it's pierced??

Yes, you can show the full-front view a bit more than Oz does in the demo, BUT, don't let the specs get a trained eye on it, and don't let them see it for an extended period of time. Just show it like Oz does and move on to the rip-down move.

The Stealth Pen and Misled are about equal on the examination level...they both require about the same method of cleanup.

I was working in a magic shop when misled hit the market after David performed it on one of his specials. Of course since I worked there I got to open one for "Demo" purposes (haha yeah right). When i first opened it I was like [edited]???? But being young and lacking years the owner told me to learn it and Demo it.

So of course I did and man did it kill people especially when you do with with a 50 dollar bill!

Now Ive just recent started liking Oz's work with his Stealing Pips dvd, but I have to say his performace of this truly doesnt do it justice.

I think from his handling he was to worried about the gimmick and also did some moves that wernt needed.

When I perform this for the first penatration I show a full frontly few but as said it doesnt need to be stress that its thru as there seeing with there own eyes. This can be a common mistake with this type of effect as it bring susption to the fact "why does he want to convince me so much its thru the bill?".

It doesnt even need to be said which is exactly what I do, after the fact I dont repeat thats it thru or say Look you can really see it thru! Theres no need for this.


Anyways I make my own now shoot for almost shoot over 10 years or at least and this great for any type of close situation.

Get this for the price you cant lose, and if you do contact me and Ill tell you how I make my own in less than a minute.

Well hope this helps you a bit.

Thank You Very Much.. :D

But, I just want to know something more..

I heard that "Misled" breaks easily and you can get the replacement for free for first time..

And from somewhere, I heard that this trick can be done with borrowed pencil sometimes..

What my question would be "If Misled breaks for more than second time, Can't you replace it with normal pencil...??"

I might be wrong because the gimmick can be not the pencil nor the bill..

I don't know anything, I just wanted to know about it before I buy it..

I bought Misled recently, and the booklet states that the gimmick isn't as fragile as it used to be, though they still will send you one free replacement if it breaks. The gimmick is not the pencil. You can give away the pencil each time, if you like.

When the first gimmick came it would crack easy.Now the gimmick isnotso bad. What I use for it never cracks. When you buy this and can explain the gimmick Ill tell you how I make my refills so to speak.

Also about borrowed pencil- I find that I see the type of pencil it needs to use at least a 100 times a day (no Im not joking) so yeah this can be performed very easy with a borrowed pencil along with the bill.
Which make this effect that much stronger.

when you get this, and I am hoping you do. The booklet gives a lot of good info on the care of the gimmick and getting the longest life possible out of it. and if it breaks in the first ten years you have it, you get one free replacement....better than most car warranties.

i have da trick... but then.... you see...i am always so scared that i'll break the gimmick... so not making my moves as smooth as it can be... so how do you make ur own refills? so then.. i wouldn't really care to break/crack them!! shipping fees ...five dollars... for once... um.... not really ''free'' then is it?

I've used the misled for abaut 2 years now and my gimmick is still
as good as new. You don't have to worry about cracking the gimmick
so much. It won't crack as easily as they say. The booklet tells you
everything you need to know about misled.

BTW has anyone ever cracked Misled?
