The smash hit effect of Blackpool Magic Convention 2016 is finally here. https://t.co/Ds5QH..
The Bat Blow your spectators away with The Raven's extremely talented cousin.
In stock: usually ships within 24 hours!
The range of the high-impact effects you will perform with The Bat is astonishing:
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?
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.

... But I prefer the raven Report this review

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.
The Bat is bad Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on December 11th, 2003
I can't compare this with the Raven or pk since I don't own them, but this is aweful. These are the reasons why I don't like it:
1. Hard to conceal
2. Not strong at all
3. Makes sounds when something vanishes
4. Coin vanishes are not possible in short sleeves
5. Can't be reset without detection
Nothing like the raven Report this review

I was very exided about getting The Bat. My friend had just gotten The Raven and it was awesome. The raven was so clean. We had called the magic store and they said The Bat was almost the same exact thing as The Raven--it isn't! you barley can do a trick cleanly without geting caught. If a spectator asks you to see your hands you are screwed. Don't go with The Bat. The Raven will give you more for your money.
Good, but I prefer the raven Report this review

This trick is really capable of a lot. You really need the dvd to know how to do some of the strongest effects though. One huge advantage of the bat versus the raven is the fact that there are much more capabilities of what can be done including the static rings effect shown in the video. However, I still find myself doing effects with this than can be done with the raven and in a much cleaner fashion. The ending is still very clean, but not quite as good as what is possible on the raven. There's nothing inherently wrong with this gimmick, it just falls under the curse of not living up to its predecessor.

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.
does not work properly Report this review

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.
PERFECT Report this review

Love this! Report this review

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.
