It appears that they forgot to remove this one for free; don't wait! Download it now! NO, they are probably raising the price (like they should!) as you are reading this! Wait to finish and go download this!

...You done? Good.

This is NOT a new, revolutionary concept but a MUCHO easy retention vanish allowed using the properties of a prop EVERYONE has. I really, really like this one and the video was entertaining within itself.

Plus, Alvo has a way of getting you to think of other, cool uses for tricks and routines with random objects; so, if they do raise the price for this, it will STILL be worth it for the value of the added creativity.

Better theory than I thought Report this review

Alvo has a point in this download, these false movements that we do as magicians can really lessen the impact of a vanish or other effect.

We should really strive for "economy of motion" and if we eliminate all these sneaky looking moves from our performances that we'll all be better for it.

It was Dai Vernon who said that if there was no false moves, then you'd have a good effect. Doing it with a washer helps!

Good thinking.

I have no problem with this video, the effect, or the teaching. A washer is an organic item, which makes for a better reaction from the audience, but it's still not something that is commonly available in any given performing situation. You're still going to have to introduce it somehow.

So this is a move with a washer Alvo Stockman created, that is all, you get what you pay for or didn't.
Thanks for the time creating this and sharing. I was hoping it was something I could put alongside Holey Moley/Holey Stretch,it wasn't, they use different size washers.
I then thought I could just do this routine along side it anyway,do a whole washer set, but couldn't because it's just a move and not a routine. Appreciate the efforts Alvo but thought you would step with a bit more at least show some of the coin routines it works with, for those lacking imagination I am thinking a spellbound production to a vanish.

3.5 stars Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on February 11th, 2013
It's fun. it's clean. As for routine, incomplete. Which is why I give it 3.5 stars.

It's extremely simple to learn, which I loved. It's smart, and like I said looks very clean. I enjoy it and was able to do it the second I picked up the right washer (which you really can buy anywhere that sells hardware).

The problem that I have with it is it seems incomplete. There are other tricks out there with washers, but this vanish won't work with them (Ie. Holy Moly).

Props to Alvo for thinking of this, and it is fun as a single trick. I'd use it at a party, or while helping someone move in, or while helping them repair or build something. That's about it.

I like it Report this review

It's a nice little handling to use for washers. It a variation of a different coin vanish, but more convincing because of how the finger is used. It's a small trick, but could be better suited as part of a routine

Thank You, Alvo! Report this review

This is a phenomenal vanish!

Obtain some coins like halves or silver dollars and drill a nice sized hole right through the center. Now along with this vanish one can do a restored coin routine or a coin and string routine. If one has some Chinese coins, do a transposition.

This is an interesting effect. I like the concept, but don't really use this on a regular basis. It's always good to have in the back of my mind if I need to bring it out. That's why I gave it a 3 out of 5. Good to know if you want to use it.
