I have issues with the discription in the sales add. Trick with gimmick, then I get the DVD and have
to make my own gimmick. Why don't they just say trick and instructions to make your own gimmick.
The concept is great and knowing that the gimmick can be seen at the wrong angles is just part
of magic. I don't believe there are very many magic tricks that don't have some sort of
missdirection or angle hiding that is needed so I wouldn't really expect anything diff here.
gave it 3 stars because of good concept that looks and works great, but the price should be that of
a gimmick that is included, not needing to be made.

This card trick is GREAT! I'm a novice magician but with the premade gimmick i was able to perform
this with 5 minutes of practice of watching the DVD. This also comes with supplies to make 4 more
gimmicks if something happened to the pre made one.
Again, GREAT TRICK!

I hear some people say it is just like Hawk. I don't have Hawk, so just judging this effect, I
really like it! It is very ingenius and opens up a whole world of possibilities from making money
appear to changing cards to making post-it notes change. One review said they had to make the
gimmick. Perhaps that has changed as mine came with an already made gimmick as well as several
special cards to make more gimmicks if I desired. Highly recommended.

I'm a magician from Italy. I bouth this trick from Penguin and it's very nice, easy and visual.
Angles aren't a problem and all that you can do is by your imagination. The dvd gives a lot of
details. I didn't have The Hawk but this trick worth the money!!!

portfolio! Buy it now!
promo video was so amazing, I bought it just to see how it is done. I have to admit that it is
visually stunning. It does come with 1 gimmick already made. The concept is ingenious. My main
problem is that I think the gimmick is so noticeable. So much that I am not even willing to perform
it b/c I don't want to be caught being a magician who uses a gimmick. I think I might try it for
kids. If you watch the promo, it takes place in a dark place and hands are always moving to disguise
the gimmick. I tried to play with the angles but it just looks too obvious for me. I got it with
shipping for $10 in the cool box and I think it is fair. If I paid $30, I would be moderately
There is a lot you can do with Xtension, really the possibilities are endless. I like making my own
gimmicks and you really do have to piece these ones together. I pull this out often while playing
poker with friends. At parties it's a hit because of how versatile it is. You could make effects on
the spot and working them seconds later. It's fun, but wouldn't be suitable for stage shows. This
one is an upclose and personal effect that I really do love.
Kolle's direction of how to
construct the gimmick is done really well and that is something that I felt is really important to
add in to my review.
I'm not sure how often I'll utilize this, but in all fairness I've just watched the DVD. I do not
own The Hawk so I can't compare them, but I think this has promise.
