Mark Mason's Stuff Rocks Report this review

Ok- this is my third set of really nice Mark Mason coin sets. I've got Come fly with me, Triception, and now Orient Express. All three routines absolutely rock. The coins are beautiful, the gimmicks are perfect, and the routines rock! All of his products and JB Magics products are first rate- you cant go wrong.
As far as Orient Express, it is Mark's take on the Cooper/Silver/Brass but uses colors instead. This makes it so much easier for the audience to follow. Easier for the magician to follow too. Great routine- actually looks better than the demo.
Effect: 10/10. Mark has taken a classic of magic and added a twist to it. No, actually an improvement to it. Great effect. Easy to follow yet baffling to laymen.
Gimmicks: 10/10- like all their products, this is first rate. The dvd is nicely made. The coins are first rate. The expanded sh*** also has a nice feature built into it- I dropped it during a performance and no one noticed what it was. The she*** landed upside down yet the gimmick was virtually invisible- I was like "wow". You also start clean and end clean.
Teaching: 10/10 Mark is a great teacher. The routine flows well and it is easy to learn. I watched the dvd twice and practiced for an hour or two and was doing magic (Smoothly). the coins do all the work. there are no real sleights involved.
Real World: 10/10 - this is a worker! Easy to carry. Auto reset. Packs small but has a big punch. I love this trick. To me, the price tag is justified by the quality of the effect and gimmicks involved. I highly recommend.

This is one of the best chinese coin - copper/silver routine ever! I love that it is so easy to do, yet so powerful. The routine starts out with three coins handed out for examination and ends with three coins handed out for examination. I love the play with simple colors instead of the more complex "Mexican Centavo, British Penny, and Yap Island stone money" routine (Although, a the production of a two ton Yap stone coin would be quite impressive). The only thing that I think would have been a bit of an improvement is if the coins were red, yellow, and green, instead of blue, black, and red. Red, yellow, and green would have lent itself to a bit more humor (You were close, yellow, but not quite a green light..). Maybe I'll paint over my coins. I also love that they are all chinese coins with holes as they lend themselves to gags, ribbon effects, etc. If you want to combine a couple strong routine, get the Charming Chinese Challenge by Troy Hooser in conjunction with this. There are so many other things you could add, folding chinese coin, flipper coin, etc. Another idea is to get a single chinese coin (half dollar size) and cut a slit in it from the edge to the hole. You can now add a linking coin effect. All in all, possibly the best copper/silver alternative out there. Also, the DVD was well done. I Highly recommend it.
