In stock: usually ships within 24 hours!
It's a rare thing when an effect comes out that accomplishes something that has never been seen before. It's even more rare that the effect uses a method that is so practical you will be performing it all the time.
The possibilities with this effect are endless. The DEVIOUS gimmick is something new and will excite even those magicians that think they know what the method is.

For the most part I have had great success with products Dan Harlan supports. This one is different. The gimmick is unusual which is true. The only problem I have are the bottles I'm exposed to in Canada. I tried three of the most common brands and neither one worked. So my main problem is the fact that no one covers the best bottles to use for this in the DVD.
I feel as though I got ripped off because of this. It's a great effect if you can find the right bottle, and the video makes this thing look amazing. It all comes down to what you're exposed to in the end.

The best thing about this is the alternate handling from Harlan Report this review

I really like the effect that's presented, but I love/hate this gimmick. There are two specific things I don't like about the gimmick, but I can't tell you what they are without giving away the method. Needless to say, you will want to get a variety of bottles to practice at home -- find the brands that work best, and avoid the others when you are in public.
That said, I'll tell you that I don't even bother with the original effect anyway. I *far* prefer the alternate effect and handling presented by Dan Harlan, which does not require you to even care about those bothersome things I can't really mention. Because, with Dan's variation, they are a non-issue. In fact, Dan's effect is far stronger, in my mind, looks fantastic, and makes the gimmick *totally* worthwhile.
So buy this. Definitely buy it. And if you discover those annoying imperfections, you can ignore them. Don't whine about them in the forums (everyone else already has). Just do Harlan's effect, and you'll be a happy camper, and glad you bought this product.

Very cool effect gets a lot of laughs and great reactions highly visual and super super suuuuuuper easy handling this is something to do at a party a club or a bar or maybe just a small get together either way it will drop jaws very cool very clean the gimmick was a little banged up when I got it (scratches) but still works my favorite part of the DVD (45 min long) was dan Harlan's handling its great my favorite one happens to be the one where you push the mouth of the bottle through a specs shirt by the way everything can be borrowed including the bottle of course there are a few restrictions as to what bottles you can use but as long as you stick to common drinks you should be fine (Bud Light, Samuel Adams, Root Beer') the only reason I gave it a 4 star rating instead of 5 is because I feel like $34 was a little steep for what you get I would have felt better paying $24 but that's just me overall awesome effect super easy and practical not really any angle issues great teaching.
It's great Report this review

I'm definitely loading this when i go to the bar or parties from now on. The gimmick is truly deceiving. Used casually you can't even tell that you've added something to the bottle, nobody will notice but you. It's very easy to load in and cleanup. The bottle and bill (or other object) can be immediately handed out for inspection when the trick is completed. It's got great opportunities for spectator interaction as well. The instructional DVD gives you lots of ideas and ways to load in and steal out the gimmick in a natural way.
Now for the cons... They freely admit this in the video and give you a hack that is supposed to help somewhat. The gimmick will not fit all bottles. Bottles vary from manufacturer to manufacturer so it's impossible to make a universal gimmick. It's supposed to fit most common beer bottles, i haven't experimented much yet. I'm practicing with a Shiner Bock bottle and it's way too big for the gimmick. You'll want to test a variety of bottles to find the ones that work best and buy those at the bar if you want to do the trick.
I'd recommend this one, it's got broad appeal, could be a good opener to a closeup routine. It's something you can chuck in your pocket and have ready at a moment's notice. It plays pretty intimately with no problem.You can do it right under the spectator's nose and they won't notice anything. As seen in the trailer you can even have the bottle penetrate the spectator's shirt. It's incredibly easy to perform as well, there's no setup or gimmick construction on your part, it comes ready to go out of the box.
Decent but.... Report this review

Decent trick but as a few other people have stated, you have to have the right bottle. Can be an issue as a result so you can't do it everywhere or you have to find a bottle and carry it around with you.

Don't be deceived by bad reviews. Unfortunately this gimmick doesn't work on ALL bottles, but that should be obvious, however you are taught a way to get around certain bottles that don't work with it. I've performed this with various bottles and learned how to fix it up. AND IT KILLS. Totally worth it!!
The only possible downside is that someone might spot a discrepancy, however this is hardly noticeable, especially in a bar (the best place to perform this anyway) which has dim lighting. Don't be misled by what I just said, this can still be performed in well lit rooms perfectly. What I meant is that the best place to perform it is the place a trick like this is designed for!
Lots of possibilities Report this review

I was excited when I got this in the mail, the gimmick is what I thought it would be for the most part. There are tons of applications this could be used for. If you work in resturants or bars you should definitely purchase this!
