I'm right up the middle on this one, (it gets 3 stars for its usefulness and because 2.5 stars
This is a good idea and an ingenious little utility. However, I have
to admit that when I received it, I was quite disappointed. Not in what it was, as, (functionally
speaking), I knew what it was. But I expected better construction and a more technical,
longer-lasting gimmick from the gang at D'Lite. The material is good quality and comfortable, but
modification on this utility item that makes it what it is and sets it apart from all others is what
is disappointing. With a little ingenuity, you can probably find that there are some ways to
strengthen the gimmick somewhat at home. ...It would just be nice if those were factory-installed
rather than arriving the way it does.
Again, it's a wonderful, extremely useful
modification of an old standard. Since I got it, I've been carrying a Flip-Tip everywhere I go, as
the opportunities to use it and the applications are seemingly endless, (in fact, I ran into a
friend who sells magic at a stand in a local tourist area who wanted to demonstrate a trick they
sell, and didn't have a TT handy. I passed him my Flip Tip, which he used as a normal TT and when
he passed it back, I produced a silk seemingly out of nowhere to deomonstrate how it could be more
versatile than a normal TT. Now he's hooked.). But it's way over-priced for what you get; which I
assume the bulk of the cost is in the video, and frankly, the video is just not worth the expense.
Too bad D'Lite doesn't sell these in single packs and/or as pairs without the video. ...Perhaps
they will some day.
I liked the addition to the thumbtip. Although it takes some practice to get used to it, I probably
won't go back to my regular thumbtip again. The video shows you multiple uses for the device. I
recommend getting it.
I was expecting a lot more out of his device. It will take quite awhile to get used to if you ever
do. The durability is less then satisfactory and to put it very plain it is just too expensive.
This should be the same price as the classic thumbtip..
The trick is alright once you get used to it. It could be better, For the price I was expecting
slightly more. The gimmick itsef I would give a 5.5 out of 10 on a tough scale. The movie I will
give a 2 out of 10.
This is a pretty cool little gimmick. I mainly use it to produce glitter. i played around with some
of the other effects that are demonstrated in the video. Some of them are pretty cool.
only real complaint is that they can wear out. I won't go into any more deatail or I'll be tipping
the method, but it can break over time. One of mine is about to do that but I've had it for over a
year. The good news is you get two of them.
It's a simple but pretty neat idea though.
Truely evolves the thumbtip to a new level..... bonus video tape is more ok than great.... but the
real bonus is the innovation of the flip tip..... productions can be absolutely magical..... I
initially thought price was a bit steep for a thumb tip....but I have to admit.. it was worth
it......a good addition to anybody's collection.
This is basically just a thumb tip, but don't worry it gets better. The great part is that you can
access the contents at any time, one-handed and without taking it off your thumb. You can show your
hands empty and reach out and produce a silk, string, confetti, jusy about anything that will fit
into a thumb tip. Any of the tricks that you do with a thumb tip just got a tenth as complicated,
you never have to worry about taking it off to get anything out. With two, the possibilities are
endless. Do yourself a favour and BUY IT NOW!
