This product is absoulutely awfull. At the price it's an absolute joke. It is so impractical to use
and awkward looking and the only reason people are saying that this is good is because they know
they have just wasted 250 bucks and they are trying to convince themselves otherwise. You are not a
magician if you use this.....you are a gullible idiot. If you're going to spend this kind of money
get the art Art of Astonishment books, anything by Jay sankey, Oz Pearlman or Josh Jay. Why not work
on becoming a real slight of hand performer. Please fellow magicicans......you are not the ones who
are meant to be fooled!!!!DON'T BUY THIS!!!

Despite my feelings for Paul Harris, I felt compelled to add these comments.
While I did not
purchase this from penguin (sorry folks) I have found this to be the least expensive and most useful
of holdouts. True reproductions of classic holdouts are custom made and sell in the range of 700-800
dollars. As far as construction, if you are careful and don't misuse this product, it will hold up
well. Well designed it is capable of miracles.
I loved using this product for a good half a year, and then one night while using it. It completely
fell apart on my unable to repair it, and for the amount I spent on it I expected a rugged product
that will stay together during performances. So in short I loved creating the miracles that I did
with the Black Widow, in fact some of my fellow magician buddies told me that it was the closest
thing to real magic they had seen in a long time, but alas it broke, and there is no way of fixing
it. If it wasn't so much money I would invest in it again, but it's not worth it for me, especially
for it just to fall apart again once I start adding it into my routine again.
I'm not crazy about this product. I guess it does what it says it does...but really I haven't used
it at all. I'm not too impressed with this purchase...I suppose in the right hands it could create
miracles, but do we really need to make sleight of hand obselete?
Meh...not worth the money
in my opinion.
This is a great product i own it and use it every day i have put my raven away you can vanish a un
gimmicked coin how cool is that get the spectator to sign it. its their coin you can do so much with
this tool and you will not be upset to get it. yes the raven is cheeper but has no chance up aginst
this show hands empty front and back.
nothing conected to your hands at all at any time get it
no disipointment here and you will not be either.
You cannot make anything like this yourself, I thought it would just be some form of magnet or
something like the raven. Its not even a pull. Hard to explain without giving it away, but it will
last me a lifetime. Bending a coin that you don't even touch on the spectator's hand; mindblowing in
ADD TO CART!!
This thing does what it says. I absolutly love it. sure it is the type of thing that fits your style
and not everyone is going to love it but for me and many others, its fantastic. It will take
practice. It's wierd playing with it at first but once you get it you'll have fun making up your own
tricks and what not.
WoW I have to say this is truly one of the best props I own. Every time I do this for one person or
a crowd, people just freak out. Well worth every penny. I know 250 is a lot but save up all your
cash for the year and get this one.
