Not crazy about this one. Compared to a lot of Sankey's other stuff, I just don't think this is as strong. The biggest problem I have with it is that it's just not deceptive enough. Not only that, the move required is going to take a lot of practice to execute quietly. I just don't think it's worth the effort, since it's not very difficult to figure out what is really happening during this effect... especially since you can't show your hands cleanly.

This was one of the VERY first Sankey routines I ever saw back in 2003-2004. It was crazy visual, and I remember watching it OVER and over again not ONLY because it floored me, but also because I really admired it for being such an amazing piece of theatre; it had a beginning, a middle and an end and was just so... perfect.
After buying this (the trick without the DVD) years ago, it really got me interested in everything Sankey had to offer. This routine is visual, powerful and practical. The instructions are incredibly clear and easy to follow. The package looks nice and proffesional, and the props it comes with are nice. In all seriousness, I am not sure if this ever needed a DVD.
Anyway, for 13 dollars, if you DON'T know this routine, this is a must have. Afterwards, you can start doing this with your own keys, strings and other things. This effect really will inspire you and open doors in close-up effects that you had never seen before.
I really can't recommend this routine enough; as David Acer said about Leaving Home, "This is one of the best close-up routines in the last 10 years". Well, David said that about 10 years ago, and it is still applicable today.

This is a good trick, that you can pretty much bring with you anywhere. It is very visual, and you will fool a lot of people. It will take quite a bit of practice to make it look as smooth as Sankey. I like Sankey's Holy Moly better, but this is a very good trick. It is fully examinable at the beginning and end, which is a plus.

This effect is very nice. It is eye candy to the spectator because of how visual it is. The method and way the trick works is awesome and very clever. It is not the easiest trick to do and will take a bit of practice but once perfected it looks amazing.
If you are wanting an out of the oridnary effect, go with this one here.
Very happy with my purchase.
Sankey is great Report this review

I have a lot of Sankey material, and this one, similar to his other effects, is not a letdown. The handling is trivial, and the effect is strong. You'd be wrong to not add it to your cart! Have fun with it!

I don't usually give things five stars because they never deserve it, this trick definitely deserves 5 stars.
You have to practice of course, but it is a really great effect, simplicity is the best thing for a trick sometimes and in the case of leaving home this is true.
Hats off to Jay Sankey for creating a truly great no frills trick.
P.S. Gregory Wilson does the same sort of routine with keys on a key ring, thats also worth checking out.
