To me, stabbing a hole in somebody's dollar, then immediately restoring it is pretty dang cool.
Although the gimmick is very clever, some spectators, on a very rare occasion, may figure it out. Odds are, though, they're just thinking out loud, and aren't really for sure how they think the trick is done.
I didn't really like the teaching of this effect. It was detailed enough, but something about it I just didn't like.
Obviously, you have to have the Stealth Pen on you to perform the Stealth Pen. Therefore, you cannot do the trick with any old pen somebody hands you.
I'm going to end this review with the pros and cons of the effect.
- gimmick is very clever
- completely examinable at the end of the trick
- looks like a normal pen
- writes like a normal pen
- you can purchase a new "gimmick" for it if you lose the one that it comes with
-payload is not very big
-the "gimmick" is easier to lose than say, the B-2 Bomber's
I also have purchased the B-2 Bomber, and, although it is the same concept, is very different. The B-2 is much thicker, and the cap breaks easily. However, the gimmick for the B-2 is "stronger", and the payload is almost twice as large.
Well, that's the end of my first review. I hope you guys enjoyed it, and constructive criticism would be greatly appreciated.
