I haven't seen any rewievs on this so here it is:

There are 6 methods:

The basic performance: The magician shows a piece of cardboard.
He places it on his left side of his body, with the cardboard facing the audience. The top half of your body moves forward - separated from his bottom half. The magician pulls the cardboard away and everything is completly normal.

Surrounded sawing: The magician stand facing the audience. He places one hand on his stomach and one hand on his back. The top half of your body VISUALLY separates from your legs. Then you go back to normal. This is one of the most visual and coolest effects in the booklet. Must be seen to belive.

Penetrating table: The magician stands in front of a table. The top half of his body slides on to the table. Then the top half body slides back on to his legs.

The jacket: The magician stands in front of the audience. His legs crosses back to be separated from his top half body. This is also very visual.

Slicer: The magician shows a piece of cardboard. He tells the audience that the cardboard is very sharp. He shoves the cardboard into his waist. The cardboard is halfway thru his body. He then pulls it back out and everything is normal.

The box: The magician has a box with a hole in it. He unfolds it and shows it to the audience. He steps into the box. Then his top half body slides forward in the box. Then he returns to normal.
It's a little hard to explain the box effect, but the box effect isn't that good.



Overall I give it a 8/10 because the Surrounded sawing and the Basic method are the one I will use the most.
A great buy, but I think someone will like it and someone will not.
It depends on how willing you are to practice it.
The gimmicks are VERY easy to make and will take under 5 minutes.

Please, tell me what you think of the rewiev. :D
