The trailer was good! Too good! It was so well produced and flashy that I was bautyrally super
excited and a bit leery with this realese.
The first thing the instructions teach is how to fix
the gimmick, which was nice because it broke about two minutes after watching the 32 minutes or so
of instructions. I have yet to fix it and had some difficulty at the Starbucks where it failed.
I bought this for the ring effects. I use Bandwidth so the pk move has only worked with that
ring three or for times out of the fifty plus attempts.
The ring stop works but the steps to get
there are a bit unatural it looks like your fingers are holding something.
I don’t do card
effects but wonder how solid they would be after the pk ring not working, surely a quarter to half a
deck of cards is heavier?
The city prediction had my interest and it works but the handling once
again is suspect and requires a slight modification to the gimmick and removing that prediction may
break the gimmick or once again appear knacky.
The pen balance? Meh.
The static shock feels
like a real shock! But there is no routining on this or any of the effects (well maybe city
prediction and the card effects that’s not entirely correct) I would have liked to seen live
performances to get an idea on how to present theese effects.
This gimmick is not examinble, so
better learn a switch before handing it to a spectator.
Allthough I am not completely
disappointed to say I am happy with the 33$ I spent would be a “stretch”

1. Shock: With this marker, your spectator will feel an electric shock, even though there are no
electronics in the marker.~ This is super clever, it feels just like a shock, even though there are
no electronics. A great way to complete the circuit and reveal their card 5/5
You can balance your marker in impossible way, defying gravity! ~ This is my least favorite on the
download. Great for a promo shot or instagram video, but I personally don't find this one practical
as there is a little too much set up. Once you are set up the visual is nice, just a little too
messy for my taste. 2/5
3. Card Ninja: With static electricity and your marker, you will
find spectator's card. The card itself flies out from the pack directly into your hand. ~This is
kind of like the haunted pack and card stab mixed together. I really enjoy this one but it takes a
little practice to get it right (not a hard move, just a little knacky). I also wonder if the mental
prediction routine method could be applied to this as well to make it a little easier..... 5/5
4. Freezing Time: You can stop time at any moment, and a ring will not fall from the marker.~
Another one of my favorites. There is a little set up, but easily covered. The visual on this one is
very very good. 5/5
5. Telekinesis: Using telekinesis, you can knock off different small
objects from your marker at any time. ~ This one reminds me of good l**p work. It is a little knacky
to get it to shoot all the way off the sharpie, but I find if I put it about half way on, it shoots
it all the way off. 4/5
6. Mental Prediction: You will learn how to read your spectator's
mind. You will know, for certain, which city they will choose.~ This one's super super clever. You
could apply this in a lot of different ways and really make it play big. 5/5
You can magnetize different small objects, enabling them to stick to your marker. ~Also a clever
routine. You might be a little limited with the objects you can use, but I haven't messed around
with it enough.Works great with flat objects. A little bit of a set up involved, but can be done
before performance. 4/5
All in all, I think this is one of my favorite products
of the year. It's really a utility advice, and you could have quite the act or part of an act using
this. The reset is instant,and if your gimmick breaks,it is easily replaceable. 5/5 for the complete

I like sharpie magic. This is easy to perform and will go with my daily carry items. All the
effects taught are not for me, but I believe everyone who gets this will like at least 2 or 3 of the
ones presented on the video. Mine has not broken yet, but video shows how to fix sharpie when that
happens. It also provides the material to fix sharpie.
