I have been wanting this for quite some time now. After I saw the visualness of this coin bend, I knew I needed this. I am a card magician and do not do anything else, well now with this effect I feel like I am branching out. This is my first coin effect and boy is it a good one.
Effect - Imagine taking a coin and having it visually bend, right in front of the spectators faces, with Infinity Bend, this IS possible. I have seen many coin bends, that were visual, but this is the most visual by far.
Method - The method is by far the coolest thing I have ever seen. It can be applied to creating other effects as well. It is so ingenious and clever.
The Gimmick - To make the gimmick you need a few objects from your house, that I can almost guarantee you have, if not you can run-up to a walmart or any shop of that kind and they will have it.
Set-up - The set-up does not take long, once you are set-up you are essentially, ready to perform at a moments notice.
Teaching - This is top-notch teaching nothing is left out and after watching the video all you need to do is practice. I did not have to rewind the video at all, because he goes over everything clearly.
Quality - The quality of the video is very good. It is clear and precise.
Overall - I can not wait to start performing this effect, after a little more practice I will have this thing up and running.
Here is a quick review on the advanced handling they put on the DVD / download. In my opinion this looks much better than the regular handling but is of course harder, this is also much more angle sensitive, but if you are willing to be risky, then take a look at this version.
Clean-up / Set-up
I like the "clean-up" on this version much more because of the fact it looks more natural, not that the other version does not have a natural "clean-up". The set-up is also much different than the original handling but of course, practical.
The teaching is the same as before very clear and precise, you will not be complaining.
Do I reccommend this to you? YES
Do I think if you use gimmicks you should have this? YES
If you buy this effect I guarantee you will not be disappointed for many various reasons:
- You can see that Eric put alot of work into this
- This is great thinking
- It is visual
- Coin can be borrowed
In My opinion the highest point of this effect is it's practicality, it is very practical, and I don't think anybody would call this unpractical.
Overall Rating - 9.5/10
The reason it is not a 10 is because like other people have said nothing is perfect, but this is pretty darn close.

Eric Ross Infinity Bend allows you to perform the most visual coin bends ever seen. Eric came up with the solution to the problem that most coin bends face, the ability to make bends visually without cover or the use of expensive gimmicks.
Borrow a coin from a spectator and visually bend it in full view at your finger tips.
Video and Quality: The video is very well edited, put together and produced. It covers everything really indept; quality was great, no problems hearing or seeing what was being said or done.
Teaching: Eric's leaves no rock unturned. His teaching is is taught with the upmost precision, very detailed; with all tips, tricks and subtleties. Very understandable and easy to follow along and superb.
Method: The methods are very devious and deceptive, yet ingenious. Infinity Bend uses a simple concept, which other products are there have used, but what makes this different is the extra little things (tips, tricks and subtleties) that Eric has added.
Gimmick: Eric teaches how you can construct a gimmick to create a gimmick for the newer or older coins. Very easy to construct and you make make an infinite number of gimmicks in a very short time...very workable and incredible.
Handlings: Eric teaches 2 handlings of these bend, one where the coin is held at the fingertips, at stomach level and as he shakes it, it starts to bend. The other handling is more of an advanced handling of the first. Both are very visual and workable. I perfer the advanced handling of Eric's. But my favorite version would have to be Brandon Williams, who teaches his handling of the bend. Here the coin is done at eye level and is visually squeezed, such a visual, nice piece.
Angles: The angles can be a problem for some, but with the right confidence and management you can easily control them to make it comfortable for you. The different handlings taught play well for any 1-on-1 situation or a group. For instance, Eric's Handling is best suited for a 1-on-1 or 3 people group, while Brandon's is better for 4-? people group and 1-on-1 as it is held at eye level for all to see.
Practicality: Very, all you need to do is carry the needed items and you have some very visual effects in your hands.
Bonus: As a bonus Eric teaches his handling of the coin matrix: Silent Matrix which is mad visual, silent and doesn't need the use of a magician's mat. The same method taught for the bend is adapted here. Very sleight set-up, but well worth it.
Overall: Mad visual effects taught in here, Eric has put some very creative thinking in these effects and Papercrane outdid themselves with this one.
I HIGHLY suggest picking up a copy, or at least checking it out.
Good idea that needs great execution Report this review

The concept is a simple one and honetly you will feel a little stupid after you get it... However, that being said do not fall into the trap of not giving it the time needed due to its simplistic nature. You MUST be confident in all you actions for this to work.
I have found that it is simple to prepare and highly effective. The matrix routine at the end is a really nnice bonus and is why I gave it 4 instead of 3 stars.

The trick does not allow always to borrow the coin from spectators. Only coins made of a given single material can be used. In fact, no coin in the eurozone can be used for the trick !! Trick presentation is, thus, misleading.
Not great Report this review

I honestly don't understand the great reviews here. I bought this because I hadn't bought anything in awhile and was getting withdrawals. Anyway you are much better buying Nathan Kranzo's Squish. I think it's five bucks less than this and it's an instant download, which this should have also been. It's not awful, but it's not good.

There's not much to say. The guy below me has already said everything. I will say that this is the most clever way to bend a borrowed coin I've ever seen. Eric's teaching is very good and he covers everything. Its very fun to perform and I highly suggest you Add to Cart
Crap Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on October 29th, 2013
I rarely trash a product, but Infinity Bend is impractical and not very convincing except maybe in a dark room with a bunch of drunks. You make the gimmicks and they're good for one, maybe two performances. The framing and switches taught are obvious and weak. With more thought on the handling and a reusable gimmick (which should be supplied), this has potential. But as is, this is crap.
Good, but..... Report this review

...the effect that comes as a bonus is even better! It's been a while, so I forget what it's called. It's a coin matrix effect that done properly will blow brains out of the cranium. It LOOKS so good, like, er, ah real magic.

I shook my head in amazement when I received Infinity Bend a few years ago. When I finished shaking my head I smiled. It is very clever.
