The range of the high-impact effects you will perform with The Bat is astonishing:

  • Using your psychic powers, your will make two 'brass' rings cling together. Spin the lower ring, then hand everything to a spectator....the rings will not adhere!
  • You'll make a coin in a glass move or even flip over!
  • You'll make matches stand, pendulums sway, coins vanish or change & much more!
There is no end to the variety of effects that can be accomplished with The Bat. From standard magic effects, to puzzles, bar bets and incredible psychic magic.

The Bat is extremely small and is easily concealed. Clip it just about anywhere on your person.

The ring effect can be performed in a swimming suit in the middle of a room, surrounded by people. No table is needed. Nothing is palmed. Your hands & finger tips can be examined before, during & after!


Q: Which do you recommend more highly... The Bat or The Raven?
A: Both The Bat and The Raven are fantastic additions to any close-up, street, or coin performer's collection. While you can vanish coins with both tools, they are two very different birds. The Raven is the ultimate tool for achieving visual vanishes. The Bat is optimized to cling un-noticed to your body as you perform a wide variety of effects.

Whether you decide to go with The Bat, The Raven, or both, we recommend adding The Bat and or Raven videos to your order. The videos will ensure that you get the full performance value out of each effect.

Manufacturer Says

In the summer of '94 we released the RAVEN, a unique prop that allows one to visually vanish and appear coins & other small objects, barehanded, in a short sleeved shirt or coat.

The BAT is a second, and an entirely different method for the visual vanish. In addition, the Bat allows you to accomplish an exciting array of additional magic.

The effects range from puzzling table stunts, to convincing psychic effects. Most notable is a clever method for performing the kinetic rings. Whether you are a casual magic enthusiast, or a working professional, you will find many uses for the BAT.

What You Get

  • The Bat
  • 2 Brass Colored Rings
  • 1 Shimmed Shell Coin

  • The ability to perform many high-impact effects with this ingenious device for years to come

... But I prefer the raven Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on December 23rd, 2007
If you have to buy only one of two then go for the raven... with it many effects in the trailer of the bat can be performed with the raven.

The bat is noisy for vanishes. (Except for a dime?)

If you buy it dont keep the raven and bat at the same place. Maybe I'm imagining things but the ring effect seems harder to produce since I kept them at the same place for some time.

Buy the bat if you want to performe telekinetic effects or that penny standing one on top of the other. Don't buy it if you solely plan to use it to vanish coins with your hands.

Morover the bat is a strong tool. Use it cautiously. It is also a versatile tool if you take the time to use it not in the most obvious way. Buy Alexander De Cova's 3 DVDs called Treasures for more ideas.

As I said about the raven, this item's range of use can be widened with PK Putty available at penguin magic at a very reasonable price.

Hmmm.... Report this review

Well, I don't know what to say.

Maybe I am not a gimmick person or maybe this gimmick isn't what it completely claims.

I bought the Bat DVD as well. So, here is what I felt about this.

For vanishes this thing is noisy. Plus angle sensitive. As you rotate your hand, the coin might get slightly visible sometimes (depends on where it gets stuck!). For vanish, I would suggest the Raven. It's the best!

Linking rings....the magnetic flux isn't enough. sometimes they link and sometimes they don't at all! :-/ I spent hours trying to capture any minute mistake in my handling. Realized the magnet isn't that strong. It's a pain.

PK effects might work. But then you ll have to come up with your own method of handling the bat for that. The DVD can be used to trigger ideas to you. But most of the tricks aren't truly practical.

This isn't an ordinary gimmick. It can do so much. Maybe the handling wasn't that much impressive in the tutorial but I ll soon come up with my own ideas to use the Bat effectively.

If you are creative, buy this. Else save the money for Raven, as it can do almost all the effects of Bat. Cheers.

It is not strong as advertised. I couldnt do the effects that are written in the instructions. Very disappointed.

Only works for the trick with the rings.

Not worth it Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on April 4th, 2010
I wasn't a fan. It was pretty badly made and feels awwkard when you use it. Plus it's very heavy for a little gimmick. THe rings that were included weren't good and it didn't include a shim coin. THe instructions were pretty basic but didn't explain much and the instructional video teaches something about it wrong. I wouldn't suggest buying it

The BAT Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on December 26th, 2007
Great device. In a nutshell, it's a less powerful M5. It's great that you can stop time (a watch), move objects, perform PK type tricks while appearing clean the whole time. Totally mystifies people. The learning curve is nil. If you use a PK ring, you'll like this. You can also do vanishes, but I perfer slieght if hand or the Raven. I'm tempted to get a second one just for the ease of maximumizing all the effects without repositioning.

Can't be the WOW factor, ease of handling, and difficulty of beings discovered for the bucks. ADD IT NOW or get one soon.

Love this! Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on October 18th, 2007
I was absolutley flaming when I got this. I mean I was so mad for spending my money on this, and having it not work. I read through the instructions and everything too. But then all of a sudden, it came to me. I don't know what I did differently, but the Bat is amazing. If you like the PK rings, get this too! My friend and I made up a whole routine, completly on the spot last night for a small crowd of people. They loved it.

Just buy it, you won't regret it.

A little Better than OK Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on September 5th, 2007
The bat is the best thing i've bought from Penguin so far. It's really fun if you get good with it. However, if you are buying the bat to move stuff etc.. you might be a little disappointed with it. Although I don't have the raven I've seen them, and I'd say that if you have the extra money, and if you are only wanting to make things vanish, buy a raven. Bat or Raven, you can show your hands empty with both and you will like what you get which ever one you buy.

I just got The Bat and it's great. Except don't try to vanish coins with it- get the Raven for that. It's great for PK and all that stuff. Good product!

The BAT is amazing! It's clings unnoticed, can move things in the spectator's hand, vanish, change coins, move everyday items, charge any kind of rings, stop watches, rub a coin through solid glass, disapear a match and have it appear back in a matchbox, make a pendulum swing and so much more! You can come up with your own ideas! I carry The BAT EVERYWHERE I go! The BAT rules! Add to cart now!
