you're PULLING my leg Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on April 13th, 2010
I've been doin' magic for many, many years this is easily my most regrettable purchase ever.Firstly the introduction of the gimmick in performance is extremely awkward. The gimmick, as stated by many, is quite noisy, and cumbersome. It seems to me, I'd be better off making a pull with a piece of elastic clothesline and plastic pill bottle. I AIN"T KIDDIN' !! I can honestly say that I can't run the risk of presenting this to my paid clientele for fear of of shattering my rep. I won't even perform this for myself, by myself, in front of my mirror again. My mirror has ridiculed me for weeks. Talk about overpriced!! The most expensive dust collector I've ever purchaced. Btw the only reason I gave it 1 star is because they won't let you give a minus 1....DON"T BUY!!!...anybody want a gecko, I'll pay YOU to take it....I'm pulling your leg, but not nearly as bad as Rosenbaum...AGAIN, DON"T BUY!!!

Ok if you are goind to click on the ADD TO CART button, WAIT! There is no words to describe how bad i feel about this thing. I really wanted to like it but i jut can't. The demo is misleading cuz it is impossible to make anything vanish except for coin... And even with coins, it is risky.
THe DVD that comes with it doesnt make it better.. Even when rosenbaum itself shows you how to work with its BAD gimmick, he flashes a few time..
Vanishe a beer bottle IRL with the gecko? impossible...
If you are ready to spend that amount of money, go for the raven(wich i have and is better than that) or The Kaylor Option(TKO) DO not put yourself in a situation where i can say, Told ya,
so baaaaaaad! Report this review

This is the worst trick I ever bought! I bought it, saw the DVD put it in the drawer and never touched it again, the worst thing you can buy! So dont do it!
Gecko...don't go there Report this review

I purchased this before reading the reviews...big mistake. It took me hours just to set up and start working with it before I finally gave up. The only time I have seen it work effectively is from a behind camera angle. I was too nervous to even try it on my family for fear of blowing it badly.
A truly awful gimmick Report this review
Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on April 4th, 2010
The demo for this gimmick looks like a dream but in reality it's actually just more false advertising. The reviews here are correct. It's only good for making youtube videos that have some blaring music to them. You'll never see this done live for a reason. If it was a godly new way of vanishing an item that made no noise and was practical you would know by now because people would be cheering it on. But there is no cheering it on. This was a good idea but poorly thought out. Noise needs to be taken care of and I don't think anything can cover that god awful noise.

i regret this decision almost every day. the gimmick is loud, and very angle sensitive. buyer beware: the are many better tricks out there for the price of this trick
An ok product Report this review

This product is overall okay. It is not the best pull system out there, but it's not the worst. There is not a single gimmick that can be used for everything. The gimmick is noisy, requires motion to hide, and hard to conceal in various instances. It gets the job done, though. You can visually vanish objects in front of your spectator's eyes. It can even be performed in short sleaves. That in itself is amazing. Another problem is that it is hard to wear for a whole performance. This gimmick get's in the way alot. you have to wear certain clothing to perform it. Most of the vanishes shown in the demo video are not even suggested to be performed live. Unlike other pulls, this one takes practice and skill to master. The results aren't completely worth it. Money can be spent in other ways. It get's the job done, though. So that makes it a groundbbreaking technique with a very old idea. I'd say, wait for a sale or the price to go down, then pick up this product
AMAZING!!!!! Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on February 20th, 2010
I absolutely LOVE this trick!!!!! I did it for my cousin. whom is age 12, and he was amazed. And i had only practiced the trick for about 45 mins to an hour. He didnt know what i did with the bottle cap. He kept saying that i was dropping it haha. The angles are not bad at all. The noise factor is barely noticeable unless they are fucusing to try and hear something. Other than that they wont know. So what im telling you is BUY THIS TRICK. ITS THE BEST TRICK AND COMES WITH EVERYTHING NECCESARY. DONT SECOND GUESS YOURSELF ABOUT BUYING IT, JUST DO IT!!!!!!!!!!
With the right amount of practise it's worth getting! Report this review

This is actually a very good utility device but it will require practise. I think a lot of reviewer's have been disappointed by the fact that the demo video made it look as if the Gecko would be easy to use. The truth is it will require a lot of practise until you develop a very smooth and natural handling. However with practise and with time it will look like real magic, so the question is- are you able to invest time and practise into this? If so, then I would suggest you go ahead and buy this.
love it Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on May 4th, 2011
I got this just yesterday.
it's not loud as many says,it's actually quite silent.
And the angles,with some practise you can do it 360 degrees around without anyone seeing the secret!!!
It's definitely worth the money!!
It's a cool idea... ...I LOVE IT!!!
