I got this from somewhere else. And what you receive is what should of been the prototype for this
effect. As a creator I can tell not much thought or research or effort went into making a quality
gimmick. I had the same idea year's ago. And I made it the exact same way as the gimmick as you
receive when you buy this. I hate giving bad review's. But strongman was made great. Probably one of
the coolest gimmicks ever. But this feels like a sad accuse to put out a product just to make money.
If you are happy with this just know if you compare it to how well strong man was made. And how bad
this was made then you will see what I mean. He legit didn't even make the. Gimmick. He just got
another product and repurposed it. That's as much as i can say without exposing the how it work's.
But this is one of the most dissoppinting product's I have ever bought. And I buy a lot. So if this
work's for you great. But just know you could of got a much better gimmick then what just looks and
feels like a prototype for what could have been!

How can a reputable dealer sell this - it is simply a product purchased for $4 (probably $2 in
quantities), used for one application, repackaged with ZERO work to the gimmick and sold for $35 to
be used as a magic trick!

Really bad quality. Forget it.
I have one word for this so called trick (JUNK) don't waste your money on it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I absolutley love this!!! All of Jimmy’s material is great and some of the wonderful things about
Re-Volution are :
A.) It is a cheaper alternative to Ultracinese or Micro Psychic and
Re-Volution uses a NORMAL NUT & BOLT! No magnet needed, or special bolt.
B.) Jimmy has
also managed to come up with an effect that you can combine with his other material, if you own
Strongman, you can perform this using your Stongman gimmick, so you could combine this with the
Strongman effect for a crazy powerful routine! One of his other effects that goes perfectly with
this is Spiraled, Jimmy came up with a BONUS EFFECT for Re-Volution where a Shapie marker spins
while it’s capped, then combine that with the twisting of the barrel as if it were a fork or spoon.
Both of those combos make for really cool routines!!
If you are wondering about noise, I
haven’t had any issues with it, you really can’t hear it unless you’re in a really silent enviroment
like a library, even then people will just think it’s the nut spinning. Some of the smoke devices
out there are louder than this. If you are in an area with ambient noise you won’t have anything to
worry about ;)
Go ahead and do yourself a favor and ADD. TO. CART!
I received mine today its cool not too much noise but certainly cannot be performed in very low
Pros: 1) I still have to try it on spectators in real world but Its a
genius idea for moving the nut and bolt with the nut and bolt being 101% examinable as the nut and
bolt are totally
un-gimmicked. Mine actually does not make noise and I believe it is extremely
practical compared with all other nut and bolt things. I will give this a 4 star as I think this
needs improvements. May be if this can be achieved in a Tarantula type gimmick without needing to
palm it it would be wonderful but for 35 Bucks I would say it is cool to have and have fun with it.
Cons: 1) The gimmick although nicely made is really really hard to take out and replace
batteries it will need extreme care as one would want to use a sharp craft and then reseal it. 2)
The one I received the battery is already low and does not run on 100% after just about 10-20
minutes of usage. So one should get new batteries and replace them. The teaching is ok with
unnecessary music playing in the background.
Maybe it will give really great reactions.
Have a try guys. The teaching is ok with unnecessary music playing in the background.
This is so bad, and you will be dissatisfied pissed off and wtf all day. The bolt is real and not
Gimmicked. You get some little crap that you have to hide in your hand to make it work. Just buy the
original nut and bolt for a few bucks off the net. Jimmy Strange this is a big let down!
I get a lot of products from Penguin. Most of the time I'm happy, but, If I do get something that
I'm unhappy with, then it's usually just because it does not fit in with me. But the gimmick that I
got is very noisy. The teaching was just okay . And like I've seen on another review, there is a lot
of unnecessary loud music during the teaching. I'm glad I don't receive many products like this,
because if I did, I would stop ordering. Unfortunately this one's going in my junk drawer.
