TKO by Jeff Kaylor
Ransom by MagicGeek
My Night with a Stripper by Chris Orbit Brown
Coin to Watch by Oz Pearlman
Keymaster by Craig Petty
Flip Shift by John B. Born



Included in Video 2:

Stone Frixion Fire by Jeff Stone
The Key by Andrew Mayne
Dupes by Big Blind Media
ONE by Will Tsai
Q by Cosmo Solano
Texas Fool 'Em by Larry Becker and Lee Earle

HOT SAUCE AKIRA!

If you haven't already, you might try running a maintenance program to clear things up; Glary Utlities (free) or Advanced System Care (also free) and then rebooting.

Thanks for the Review. I'm definitely going to pick up instant radio when penguin has it. Mabey Confessions of a Needle Swallower. But how does it rate to other methods? i dont want to buy it and then find that its really similar to stuff i have.

Awesome reviews as always. I'll be avoiding some of the stuff you have on there, but I'm really interested in Texas Fool 'Em.

Thanks for the feedback! I have received several messages from magicians that have products featured in the reviews, it's great to hear from those guys too.

I have to also say that Ransom (DVD and Props) by Chris Ballinger and Magic Geek. Bad really bad. I should of read Akirafist review 1st. I always look for his reviews before I buy something. But I jumped the gun and I payed the price ( 20 bucks ) The worst 20 bucks I spent all year. Even the D.V.D. not very good. You can so see his moves, maybe because I was looking for them and the Laymen wont but I will stick with my TT dollar. The coin tricks he does at the end ( LOL ) Dude come on. Now Instant Radio v2 ( WoW ) dead on Akirafist. One of the best buys for me this year and also T.K.O. now these are great magic. Buy now.

Hey man.

Great reviews!

Glad you like Keymaster. Just so you know the keys were supplied uncut so that you could cut them to your own key. This way the trick serves a practial purpose as well as being pretty cool. I thought I'd explained this on the DVD, my bad!

Anyway keep up the good work.

You the man.

Craig

Thanks Craig! I love everything you've released, especially Split Happens which I'm watching for like a 7th time (love the guy with the cap's reactions, especially for Coins Thru Table). I'll pickup SLIM in my next batch purchase.

Hotsauce job as always Akira! Thanks!

As to Anywhere Index. hanks for the nice comments. But I DID mention to watch the vids FIRST so that you would understand the whys and such of the index system. As to repositioning the indexes on the plastic frames... I do it all the time.. It is easy... The first run is now sold out. You should try it with the DiVinyl Wallet. It works beautifully.

And now I know who you are, which is cool!
