What items can you vanish with it? Apart from the smaller objects. Can you, for example, vanish a full deck of cards or is that moving more into the toppit category?

For example, you perform Rapture, the box disappears then so does the deck.

Coins (multiple, they don't clink), pens, up to 10 (or so) playing cards
I've been using the "fake iPhone" and vanishing it, because it's thin and light. People freak.

Deck of cards in a box - no.
Full deck of cards - no.
Real iPhone - I wouldn't because of the weight.

Hmm, well that's a bit of a downer. It would appear that my spongeballs will probably go fine but I am moreso cards/sponges...I tend to shy away from coins as I am terrible with them, haha.

Cheers.

I have both the Any Card to Spectator's wallet gimmick and the original TKO

What i hated about the original TKO was the installation. Which pretty much felt like i had to dedicate a shirt to this.

So how has the installation process been improved?

He introduced velcro and a safety pin button hookups. You can still use both with the old version with some modifications, so no need to really upgrade.

Hi akirafist, I have a couple of questions for you:

Can you vanish/re-appear bills?
Can you vanish e.g coins and make re-appear them in both hands at same time?
Can you vanish cards such as VISA / Master Cards?
Do I need to be standing up or can I sit down at a table and vanish things?
Can you re-appear multiple coints in one hand?
Can i vanish coins / stuff without closing my fists and in any position with my hands? e.g hands being upside down etc
Can you vanish objects while standing close to someone? Or do you have to be at a distance?

Would you recommend the TKO 2.0 to a complete beginner, if I spend a lot of time practising it?

Is there a chance of getting caught when you vanish stuff in front of people, or is it complete foolproof?

Do I need to be standing up or can I sit down at a table and vanish things? Both yes
Can you re-appear multiple coins in one hand? Easily, yes
Can i vanish coins / stuff without closing my fists and in any position with my hands? e.g hands being upside down etc Watch the demo, you gotta do it like he does it. But yes to open hands.
Can you vanish objects while standing close to someone? Or do you have to be at a distance? You can be a foot away from them.

Would you recommend the TKO 2.0 to a complete beginner, if I spend a lot of time practising it? Be prepared to spend A LOT of time. An hour a day for 1-2 months

Is there a chance of getting caught when you vanish stuff in front of people, or is it complete foolproof? Before mastery - you'll get busted occasionally. Afterwards, never busted again.

I'm still not completely convinced here. First off the bat is the shirt he's wearing I hate to wear. Short sleeve button-ups are just tacky and unprofessional. Just from that, I'm relativity sure how the effect works. I will say this though: If I'm right, it's only moderately better than the gecko.

You can wear a long-sleeved dress shirt. It doesn't have to be short-sleeved.

It is a real quick modification. I actually modify most my shirts and pretty much wear it most the time. If you are into 30 minutes of hand stitching you can modify the whole rig so you can vanish small pool-balls and a full deck of cards.
