My gimmick broke after 10 minutes of use. I contacted Penguin and they told me to contact Eric
Jones, which I did. He was prompt responding to me. I sent him a SASE which cost another (sending
him the broken gimmick and for him to send me back) I have contacted Eric a few times asking how is
the repair, no response. It's been 17 days and Eric has vanished completely. I have spent a total
of on this failed trick; I feel totally ripped off. Warning do NOT trust this magician. I will
be looking to buy my magic elsewhere. Worse customer service ever!

I bought this and it broke after a day ! Although I managed to fix it back and it is functioning
normally now , I seriously regreted buying it ! Don't buy it.

Very powerful effect with an extremely simple gimmick. The beauty of this effect is that it causes
the spectators attention to be drawn to an ungimmicked card, while the gimmicked card remains
uninteresting. It's quite devious.
I would recommend purchasing a spool of Madeira Elastic
thread online, and making your own gimmicks, once you've seen how they are constructed. The thread
is superior to that which is used in constructing the gimmicks you will receive, and will make the
effect smoother overall. However, even without that adaptation, it's still a killer.
You'll love this, and so will your audience. Add to your cart now. You won't be disappointed.
Eric Jones is the man.

Hi guys! Im here to tell you that finally i found a trick that i would never leave at home! The
things you can do with this gimmick is crazy! Imagine a sandwich effect without secretly placing the
chosen card between the "sandwich" cards!
for this price, u should
not add it to your cart. you should add TWO of it to your cart!!
BUY NOW!!!! NO REGRETS

I love the concept of this trick. I watched the DVD from the beginning and was making sure that I
took proper care when using this trick, in the practice stage in broke. Very disappointed! I
contacted Penguin and they told me to contact Eric Jones who said he would be happy to fix it. It's
beyond fixing, still now I have to send it back to him in a SASE so he can repair it and send it
back to me. More time and more money spent. Sigh :(

These are simple to use and I favour just one simple move which only involves 3 cards as this is
quick and the least risky for beginners.
I do think that there needs to be a 'refill'
available as the gimmick will slacken after time and become detectable. I don't agree that there
should be additional material to make your own as this will definitely not reproduce the precision.
Refill is best option.

The effects done with this gimmick look like camera tricks...amazingly visual. You need to treat
gimmick with care. I lov the prop and particularly like the sandwich effect. Instruction are
very, very clear and well presented.
Twisted is Great!!!
I have been performing my own routine with this gimmick a bunch over the
The gimmick it self is great and I know some people think that the gimmick is visible
but trust me I use this on a day to day bases and have never had one person even have a clue how it
work. I guarantee that the people who say its too visible have never gone out and perform this also
I never have had mine brake I think the only thing really is as all playing cards do the gimmick has
gotten a bit grimy and need replace but that is not a problem.
Its great so just buy it!!!
WOW ! This is always in my deck, always ready to amaze people. What you can do with this gimmick:
some of the most eye popping and clean color changes ever, some head scratching disapearance and
therefore some amazing transpositions or card to impossible location. Put a little thought into it
and you can come out with a place for it in your act.
The gimmick is fun to play with and
reliable. It will take some practice to be confortable with it, and it will take some getting use to
if you were to let it sit in your deck (and you will want to, just to be always ready to blow them
away). I got amazing reactions from this... Just look at the video, and let your imagination go.
This gets my highest recommandation and i'm usually hard to convince.
Another Great item from Eric Jones. Very Clever & well made.
