I purchase quite a bit of magic from various dealers and have for many years. This is BY FAR the
worst purchase I have EVER made! It's like buying a $100,000 House only to discover that when it
comes time to move in you, there's NO HOUSE but only a stack of 2x4's and plywood on the lot and YOU
HAVE TO BUILD THE FREAKING HOUSE! AND not everything is there to accomplish the task. You provide
the tools, pipe, electrical wiring, so its off to the building supply store...
Penguin to include a disclaimer in the description as to whether the effect in question is a 100%
Arts & Crafts project, (Y)es or (N)o...
I'm through buying DIY projects that should come
OH and the video tutorial is HORRIBLE!!

This has to be the worst purchase I have ever made. The only thing that would be any better by
selling this product is if they put it together for the purchase to make it even look close to the
demo and then maybe informing the buyer that the said gimmick wont last more than a few times. Very
weak construction material as well other area' s gimmick is nowhere near hidden with color

I don't know that much about Smagic but this trick/gimmick is really bad. It's all DIY. It comes
in a CD case but no CD...just download info which is ok but kinda funny to ship the materials in a
CD case. Moving along...the materials provided don't match the color of the case. Took me 2 hours
to construct and another thirty-forty minutes to tweek. In my humble opinion and again this is my
humble opinion I would never use this for public demonstration. It's terrible and it would be a
dis-service to my audience. I don't mind arts and crafts but this one wasn't worth my time or
money. Sorry Smagic...try again and please put out something that we magicians can actually use.
Maybe next time actually make the gimmick instead. SWITCHBOX by Mickael Chatelain is better in my
opinion. Just my thoughts. Magic On Everyone.

I received DVD box of Retrieve and when i open it, i think that's already made, but i have to finish
by my-self. During the time watching the tutorial video and construct, i finish my own gimmick,
that's nice, clearly, but not quite good to perform at live-conditions. Personally, i think 4 stars
is highest level i can give to this trick. By the way, materials inside the DVD is quite well.

The only reason I give this 3 stars is the arts and crafts projects involved. When you buy the
extra stuff and/or use the stuff you have laying around it is an excellent gimmick trick. Be
prepared to CAREFULLY assemble the gimmick!
With such a garbaje you are killing that hen,because what could be a good bussiness if you avoid
things like retrieve you would avoid people like me getting out of you. Apart from that, I,m really
tired of magic tricks that openly lie when offering the item. Sorry for my english.
Bought based on trailer... what a mistake it was. First of all, you are not getting a gimmick, but
only material to assemble a gimmick which is not easy as the parts are not done properly. I managed
to complete mine despite the quality of instruction online video being terrible and guess what... it
is not reliable and looks bad... Disappointed in this waste of money :\...
i just watched the first 7 min from the Tutorial and i couldn't Continue
the Tutorial is
Horrible and he barley Speaks in a right way
i will continue watching it then i will come
back for a worst Review
and please next time you should inform us that we will build such a
hard Gimmick like this one.
one of the worst purchases i have ever made
This trick not only came completely diy, but it was missing a very key piece,
That without it, I
flushed 20plus dollars down the toilet. The instructions are terrible, and I’m left with a trick
that I can’t complete. I spent $23 on paper and tape. I emailed them two days ago asking if they
knew where I could get the part that I payed for that wasn’t included and have not heard back yet.
Stay away from Smagic.
