I give the PEN 5 stars along with Psypher itself, but I give the manufacturer -1 Stars because this
has been UNAVAILABLE for more than a year now! Come on, get it BACK IN STOCK already!

The reason I ordered the psypher pen was because on the video a Sharpie Pen was used and the one
that came with my Psypher kit was an Expo Pen. Unfortunately, I received another Expo Pen so I was
disappointed. The pen works great, but I was expecting something else.
Starting at the beginning, if you see Psypher performed that you will want to buy it. For me, the
only downside is that it comes supplied with a Dry Erase pen. The Dry Eraseness has nothing to do
with the method but does offer a presentation alternative.
That said, I wasn't comfortable
with using Sharpies in other parts of my performances and then digging out a dry erase pen for this
effect. (I say digging out because it doesn't come with a pocket clip.)
Then along came
this add-on and I am a happy camper who can at times appear to read peoples thoughts.
However, there is a HOWEVER and it can be good or bad news. I think it's mostly good. This
isn't a Sharpie pen. It's a Dry Erase pen disguised to look like a Sharpie. Same deal as in the
first paragraph, it allows you to use an alternate presentation of Psypher. And, having a dry erase
pen disguised to look like a sharpie may provide other uses besides.
Unfortunately this pen does not have a "built in eraser magnet" like the pens that came with my
nomad pad, but the pen is completely unsuspicious and works very well with my magnetic impression
The Psypher Sharpie fits right in with the rest of my close-up effects. It's something my audiences
are used to seeing and works great. It's great to use one pen for everything I do.
the content is the greatest, nothing to say
It performed well; helped make the illusion more real
I think this is the way to go for me.
I use it to reveal a name and a playing card. I do
my own version of what is thought in the video. It's like ACAAN, except that the N stands for Name
:). Any Card At Any Name. I think that's way more powerful than Any Card At Any Number, actually.
I use a sharpie for something else in a routine, and it fits very organically for me to
have them write something on a smaller post it note. In my mind I place a small post-it note on the
case of the playing cards to give them more space and support when writing, and it works great!
Originally I wasn't using a sharpie for anything else in my routine and it made sense to use the
erasable marker for them to write on the cellophane of the card box and wipe it off after showing it
around, but somehow the post-it note seems to be more impressive to audiences too. So, the sharpie
version is the definite keeper for me.
