I had been performing this effect for a while and i know 100 dollars is a lot to invent into
something small. But I urge you, The Key is incredible enough that I once lost it and I spend
another 100 dollar to get this again. I'm not verified buyer, but I got this shipped from Tannen
shop in New York. Over the time, the key will get dirty from oil on your fingers but you can polish
it up with ketchup and it will restore it to original state. It easy to take care of and should last
you a life time! It really easy to perform and I love it. Please, don't let the negative review
effect your decision on purchasing this. But for some reason if you don't like this, you still have
30 days to return this to get something else. But I assure you, you'll love this just as much as I

I received this key and was really excited, but while performing.. the gimmick can be seen very
easily. Though this effect is powerful. Sometimes I really get scared to use it. About the product
there is no doubt about its quality. But over time the key colour gets faded and the switched key
can easily be spotted it's a different key

This is obviously an old product. It must have been sitting on a shelf for years. The rubber band
was perished and was not working and soon broke. I put a new one in but there are still issues with
the gimmick. It doesn't close properly. Another pain in the butt to return it and I'll pay the
international postage I guess.
It’s very visual close up, and you can come up with ways to start and end clean. Magick Balay’s
handling is one way to do it.
I get great reactions and loving it. For this price, though, it
would be nice to have spares of everything, in case you lose something, etc.
The performance, as demonstrated on the DVD, the illusion can be viewed in the round, 360 degrees!
Having said that there are performance angles and there are mechanical angles. If super close-up
and in the wrong light something could be revealed. One of my regular venues utilizes a large
projection screen, I used only one spectator which made the mechanical angle thing non existent. On
the large screen it looked incredible, even with extreme HD close-ups. Needless to say it played
very well...especially if combined with a couple of other well known effects that Penguin offers.
Nice quality, durable and very practically usable.
