Flash by Chad Long (DVD + Gimmick) The perfect marriage of technology and magic. NOW SHIPPING. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.
Out of stock.
A classic trick, brought up-to-date with modern technology! Two USB flash drives, one red and one black are freely shown. They switch places several times, each more visual than the last, and then the black drive stretches to three times it's normal size!
* These custom-designed flash drives do not contain memory.

Very innovative, trendy routine! And easy to execute. My only gripe is that I feel that the set should have included a long red drive instead of black for the finale. The brighter red color would be more visual for impact. And more importantly, this would have allowed the magician to end clean with props that can be examined. As it stands, you wouldn’t want to swap out the gimmick drive for the small double-sided black one at the end, since that would make no sense after supposedly stretching the small black one during the finale. Supplying a small double-sided red drive also would address my concern, but my first suggestion would not have increased the production cost at all for this product. Fortunately, there is no reason to hand out the drives upon conclusion, and I suspect that very few spectators will care due to the innocence of the props. So while I’m being somewhat nitpicky, examinable is what separates 5 stars from 4 in my opinion. Regardless, money well spent, since the beauty of this trick is in its simplicity & practicality.
Awesome for walkaround gigs!! Report this review

Just finished a gig with the help of Chad Long's flash. The audience can relate to the props which makes this trick super special. The final kicker of the trick is absolutely amazing. It is easy to do and easy to carry. The teaching is also wonderful. This trick is an absolute must have !!!
Forget the knives, use the drives! Report this review

FLASH arrived yesterday and I couldn't wait to watch the DVD, I just had to try the "move" with the flash drives. I could do it! That's not something I can say about all paddle trick items. The size of the drives and the materials involved are just right. I can hardly wait to watch the DVD and get this effect into my restaurant work.
Awsome, Brilliant, call it whatever you want! Report this review

Well, an old Idea brought to life in a more modern and familliar form. Beautiful, simple gimmick that is really easy to use. You can create many Ideas yourself, and routines. 4 stars because behind all the simplicity and perfection, its like a gimmick you can create yourself in a different form. I mean, its well made, but 29.95 would be a more resonable price. One way or another, went straight into my routine, and the teaching is great, you also get a booklet. Trust me, walk around, close-up, restaurant magic. All of it. You probably want this.

I was hesitant to purchase this because I've never been a fan of Hot Rod, Color Changing Knives, etc. But I took the plunge and ordered this because the framework has changed...flash drives! The props are top-notch and Chad teaches a wonderful color change on the spectator's hand! Very, very visual.
A YouTube reviewer has stated that the props do not look like flash drives, but I beg to differ. Flash drives come in all shapes, sizes, colors, etc.
I highly recommend this!

Long long ago in a magical world far far away there was a classic routine involving sticks with colored jewels in them. Same concept as this newly reinvented routine but completely impractical for today's audience.
*Walks up to stranger* "Hi, take a look at these sticks that I have bedazzled...."
No one wants to be lame magician. NO ONE.
This trick brings the concept forward into our time and makes the magic moment cool. Everyone knows what a flash drive is, that is what makes this so good.
Do yourself a favor. Purchase this one. I mastered it in less than 30 min and even made up a stronger routine.
You can too.
well worth your lunch money.
Perfect effect but for a few flaws. Report this review

First, I love this effect. Very nice upgrade to modern day, very easy to relate to, everyone uses flash drives. However, there are two things that I feel need improvement.
First, and this isn't a big deal, but it would be nice if at least one of the drives was real. I realized I can modify the fake drive to house a real one, so no biggie. I don't take points for this because it stated the drives weren't real when I bought it. It just would have been cool to have the DvD ON the real drive, but oh well.
The main reason I take off points is there is a major oversight with the props. Because of the way these props are colored, you end dirty. You end with the “dirty” drive in your hand. The long drive is the same color as the solid one. If the long drive was the opposite color of the solid one, you could end the routine with two solid, fully examinable drives, with no major change in the routine. This oversight is why I took off a star. I don't understand how such an easy fix went unnoticed, though I suspect it was because the creator wanted to do the last phase the way he does. Given that magicians prefer to end clean, this should have been changed.
If you want to end clean, you still can if you modify the drives. The color is a separate piece glued, so I found thin rubber and removed the solid black drive's color panels and replaced them with a different red color, as well as the red panels on the double sided drive, so they match. I also gave the solid drive a real drive.
Overall this is a great effect, I recommend it if you think it suits your style, but be aware of these issues. Still worth it to me.
