It's a great concept/Not practical Report this review

I was so excited to get this because the effect was just too amazing to be true in the demo and Ive been talking to Jay about it on a forum. Lets get down to business. First of all when I opened the package, I knew what I was going to get, but the problem was, the gimmick looked so fake. It looks nothing like a real US quarter when you look at it. My coin was either poorly made, or they all look like this. The coin doesnt sound like a real coin when put on a table. It sounds like plastic almost but really its not. Also the edges arent even round. On parts of the quarter, there are almost flat edges to it. For $300 dollars I was expecting something WAY better. I tried to let that slide out of my mind and tell myself that I should watch the DVD first before I make any decisions.
DVD: The sound quality wasnt the best, and the piano music is pretty distracting in the background. When he does the setup, it just about blew my speakers out and scared the crap out of me. Youll know what I mean when you get it. This technology isnt even that new Im not sure why they made it sound like they invented something new in technology. Set up takes 3-5 minutes? Yah right. Plan on a few hours if you want to do it the preferred way. (Which is pretty much the only way.) The coin itself can be reset in 20 seconds dont get me wrong. But the entire setup can take a few hours. The handlings are pretty awkward because you have to be very careful about how long you can actually touch the coin or the trick is already ruined. I already knew this wasnt a trick with a quick reset, but this setup is almost ridiculous. I almost feel bad for Jay because he explains the process of making the coin and its crazy. He shows you all the prototypes, and he tells you that there are over 4 companies are used to create the coin. That still didnt cut it for me since the coin looked pretty fake. Okay okay maybe I should try it out on someone before I judge the DVD or the coin.
I did the setup (long time), kept it set up in my pocket, and went to one of my roommates in college later that day. Hes so fun to do magic to because he will freak out at anything. I asked him to borrow a coin, and asked to make sure that it was straight. He confirmed it was straight. Then I placed it in his hand and let the coin bend and do its work. Instantly he said cool! That was a good sign. Then he picked it up and stared at it.. is this even a real quarter? He knew it looked fake as well. He didnt ask me again, but once he saw how fake the coin looked, the credibility of the effect was ruined instantly. He said it was cool, but didnt talk about it after that like he did with some other stuff I do. Maybe coin bending wasnt his thing so I tried someone else I tried it on my girlfriend. She thought it was the coolest thing. She didnt say anything about the coin looking fake, but I could tell she was thinking about it. She was being nice to me. I just ended up doing a normal coin bend and switching it out for a prebent coin and let her keep it. All the sudden she thought it was cool and asked how I did it and wouldnt stop bugging me about it. The time I used the Elite coin bend though, her reaction wasnt that big.
Want to hear the truth? Im pretty disappointed about this. I dont mind the setup at all. It is quite long, but you get used to it after the first time. Dont let the setup stop you from getting this. The main thing was that the coin looked extremely fake. Not even just a little, It looks like a toy coin that you buy from the dollar store, when I really bought it from a three hundred dollar store. Cool concept, cool technology, cool DVD case, but not a good coin. The bend is also pretty subtle, almost too subtle for me. You almost cant tell the difference before and after the coin bends sometimes. 300 dollars wouldve been worth it if the coin looked realistic. Too bad it isnt. Sorry penguin, I love everything about you guys, but I dont think this effect is the best thing youve sold.

The price is too much for a phony looking quarter. I was anxious to recieved this trick and try it out but I have second thoughts about it. To think that you could ask someone for a quarter and make it bend in their hand and they see the bended phony looking quarter then I will be the phony one.You guys have fantastic magic products but this one got me. I took a chance with the price for this trick and I was taken.
Way too expensive Report this review

Want to know why there are no reviews for this item. Because no one can afford or wants to spend $300 for a coin!! Great illusion everyone could share with the world if only it did not cost so much!!
did they look see the trick? Report this review

i did not buy it (luckily) but my friend did... it is not an easy setup by no means and while the effect is good the end product probably shouldnt be inspected. a switch out would be the better option but that takes away from the "in the spectators hands" effect. not sure what banachek was thinking when he gave his recommendation, wonder if he just seen the demo and commented on that... i would not lend my name to this and i am nobody... it is a pretty good trick if you use the switch but for $300 it is not worth it.

Wow. For that price you should have just invested a couple of hundred more and bought a Quantum Bender 2.0 by John Sheets. Nothing comes even remotely close in terms of quality and deception.

The concept is great! But the coin itself does not look real enough. It's close, but not close enough. The first time a did the trick, the spectator said, "That's not even a real coin." The bend made no impression. This is also due to the fact that the bend is so slight, it can be missed if the spectator is occupied with the appearance of the coin. The price was very high, and I had great hopes. But I have not tried to perform it again.
