I bought this trick and returned it shortly afterward. Penguin is the best BTW for excellent return
service! The reason for the return is too much setup and not workable in my office environment. I am
in a small office setting and some parts of the trick could (and were) easily detected. Who wants
that. The trick is quite clever but unless you are in an environment that is ideal, it will fail.
I liked the trick because you can stand or sit and immediate inspection of the manipulated
item is perfectly clean. I wish the price was lower for the trick because it was way overpriced for
what you get unfortunately.

I purchased this effect when I was attending the Hank Lee Conclave in Hyannis Mass.
I just got
to perform it for a few shows last weekend and it blew people away!!
My favorite story so far is
when I was showing the effect to a group of engineers at the company I work for.
First out was I
was moving my fingers slowly to give the illusion of the nut moving on the bolt. After I performed
the effect a second time I seen their face just go blank!
So far this week I've had four
engineers come up to me and ask how I did it. They loved it!
I live on a river, and I was by the
riverside and in my first attemps showed a teenager this effect, and he actually shouted out the
words NO SH** !!
After realizing what he said he got embaressed and left. Quite a funny moment!
Ultracinesse is definatley worth the investment!!

Hi, I am a nightclub magician in Las Vegas. I had the opportunity to see the gimmick to this before
buying. I took some time to think on it, then dove in. 2 hours after purchase I was performing this
at PURE, and believe me, it is a money maker.
I made 50$ on my first performance of it,
and that was all I did. Now it is cumbersome, a good outfit for it is necessary, I had to buy extra
jewelry to disguise it, and it can be very touchy.
There are times when this will just not
work, but it will be because of your body, not the gimmick. Having very good muscle memory is
important. As well, if done with visual panache, this effect can become very painful.
may destroy your sensitivity in your hand after a while. So it depends on your dedication.
use this to open a set because it makes people stop to see what is going on, which then makes simple
tricks look better afterwards, because they are still reeling over the bolt.
1. The leather part is cheap, it will break down.
2. This gimmick would be somewhat
complicated to reproduce, so buy the real thing. (there are janky forges out there)
prepared for callouses.
4. Be prepared for your hand to go numb.
5. Be prepared to watch
people lose their sh*t.
The added effects are so-so. I had to buy special rings for the
thumb bit, but now I just put my two index fingers together and that works. The leg stuff does not
work for me, but I can make a cigarette spin on a playing card. (no metals).
If you have the
opportunity to try before you buy, do it. This effect is very heavily based on how your body is, and
you will not know how good it will work for you until you try it. It will work for most people I
believe, but you will have to work for it.
(I personally drew exactly what shape I use my hands
for each effect, then mimic that in practice.)
Bottom line: This effect is
$$$, but that will not be the reason that you will hardly see people doing it. It will
be because of dedication. I perform this regularly in Vegas, and have not met another out here who
does. Its just too cumbersome/painful for them. Which is fine with me.
No pain no Gain.

I can't believe I paid $250 for this, it's cheaply made and doesn't work. It doesn't matter how
I have the gimmick attached. And the instructional DVD doesn't help much either. I'm very

I was very disappointed with the trick after receiving it. I could not get it to consistently work.
That is very hard for a Mensa member to admit! However, following Alvo's extra instructions and
tips, it is truly the closest thing to real magic I have ever witnessed. Although I am still
perfecting a presentation, I am 100% confident that this will blow people away like nothing I have
ever seen before.
This will be a HUGE favorite for years to come and very much worth the little
I wish I could give it 6 stars!

I am not really a bloke who write pages on a review,i tend to keep it as short as possible but the
ultracinese needs a proper review as too many guys vote it down!
Fortunately in magic all good
effects needs practicing otherwise every man on the street would be a magician,and Ultracinese is a
brilliant effect,means it need practicing
It is not a self working effect in the sense of setup
and perform.Mr Stockman did an explanatory dvd on setup and basics to get you going which is a great
bonus,but again the setup is really trail and error.the dvd included is not the best but it will get
you there,although as i said Mr Stockman settled the score on set up and get you working
The quality of this gimmick is great,will last you a long time,and again this effects reward lay
50% in the amount of practice and 50% in the gimmick.
I played with this thing for about an
hour and off i went,again room for improvement but practice will make me flawless
something to think about.how many magicians can do the classic pass,or still use it...??i bet a
few because it needs practice...
there is a fine line between real magic and
Ultracinese,add it to your chart and judge by spectators reactions.
Well Done Leonardo
Milanesi you created magic!!!

This is a great effect. Like all great effects, it takes a little practice. At first, I was
disappointed by the DVD provide, but after watching Mr. Stockman's revamped explanation, it gives me
hope. The price is a little high, but if you're a working magician, it will pay for itself very

love it yeah i will take some work to get it to work but when you get the nut to start moving it
looks like pure magic well worth it for those having trouble getting it to work hold the screw
tighter that worked for me
