"I chose to perform 'Dr. Bill's Bend' on my television special. My studio audience loved this routine, and so did I."
-Steve Cohen, The Millionaires' Magician

"I'm very mad at myself for not having thought of this years ago! This is a perfect way to do a key bend and the method leaves so much open to presentation as evidenced by Steve Cohen. It's just a great concept! The additional material from Banachek, Mauricio Jaramillo and others is pure gold. I particularly like the Pender Bender setup, but it's all wonderful. Great work, Bill!" - Richard Osterlind

"I like this well thought out combination of key bending and pendulum work. In fact, I like it a lot. The handling is convincing and the moves well-motivated. Additionally, the routine provides a solid rationale for the use of a key. And, unlike many of the more recent metal bending offerings, it doesn't look the least bit like a magic trick. It's an effect that working professionals will find particularly useful as a quick and powerful demonstration of apparent psychic ability." - Bob Cassidy

"An absolutely wonderful framework for metal bending. The audience has something to see and a wonderful surprise at the end. This is a reputation maker." - Banachek

"Bill's routining in Dr. Bill's Bend is superb! This is worth way more than the asking you get additional ideas for Banachek, Mauricio Jaramillo and more. Nice work Dr.!!" - Paul Carnazzo

"Dr. Bill's Bend is, without doubt, one of the best key bending routines I have seen. The presentational script is powerful and there is absolutely no heat on the moment of the bend. Whether you are a Mentalist or a Magician, Dr. Bill's Bend is guaranteed to mesmerize, entertain, and stun any audience." - Peter Duffie

"Wonderful thinking!" - Ben Harris

"I'm a huge fan of Bill's thinking, and know I can always count on him for brilliant thoughts and suggestions. I often use Andrew Gerard's, Key Accessories--and love it--but I think I like this even more! The pendulum is something that every mentalist should be utilizing in their shows, and Bill's Bend makes excellent use of it as a visual representation of energy transference. Everything is so well thought out, and the bonus ideas from others really add to the value! Awesome work, Bill!" - Matt Mello

"If you've ever wanted to do a metal bending effect, but lacked a well laid out routine with which to present it, Dr. Bill's Bend is a great way to go. It builds logically by employing ideomotor response to help your audience suspend their disbelief as the effect reaches its climax. One can easily see why it was chosen by Steve Cohen to be included in his TV special, “Lost Magic Decoded." - Bruce Bernstein

"When I first looked at Dr. Bill's Bend, I knew I was holding something very special. There is much more than a simple's an entire presentation that crackles with fresh thinking. An absolute masterwork." - David Thiel

"A practical, neat, and utilitarian item of wide application. It is open to your imagination to present as eerie and creepy or as witty and urbane as you please. Don't pass it by.. Excellent!" - Marc Salem

Imagine using a simple pendulum made from a piece of ribbon and a key (these can all be borrowed) to teach an entire audience to focus their mental powers in ways that will blow their minds! Then imagine what starts happening when keys begin bending in their hands! Dr. Bill’s Bend is pitch perfect as is, or it can be the smash climax to any routine highlighting the wonders of pendulums.

Originally published in David Thiel’s anthology “Pendulum Magic: Routines For Mystery Performers,” Dr. Bill’s Bend has been updated to include Steve Cohen’s very dramatic touches, subtleties from Banachek, as well as ideas and a full presentation from Mauricio Jaramillo. Dr. Bill’s Bend, described by David Thiel as a “system” for creating pendulum effects, can truly be performed for one or one thousand.

There are several variations, including ideas from Andrew Gerard, Greg Arce, Tony Razzano and Bob Cassidy. This is a “mini-course” on getting the most out of your pendulum work. Instructions on enhancing your use of suggestion are also part and parcel of Dr. Bill’s Bend!

This routine is a true work of art. It clearly teaches both a powerful key bend and presents a fabulous framework for pendulum work.

The section from Banachek alone is incredible - allowing a participant to actually FEEL (and confirm that she/he felt) the bend. This tactic is applicable to any other bending routine as well.

More than any review online, the comments from the likes of Salem, Osterlind, Banachek, Bernstein et al in the product description says it all. These gentlemen know what they are talking about and what works in the real world. Most of all: Steve Cohen, as professional as they come, did this on an INTERNATIONAL television special, and all the touches are described in the ebook.

Buy this, study it and you'll have a showpiece for life.

Dr Bill´s material shows how simple ideas plus excellent psychology can transform "tricks" into "miracles"

Dr Bill´s Bend is no exception. Several ideas that fits perfectly plus excellent audience interaction that can give your performance "the moment" that you are searching.

I know for a fact that pendulums are an incredible tool for the Mystery Performer and funnily enough I use similar ideas in the past and Dr Bill´s Bend will worth the money that you are investment and much more.

If you are serious about creating everlasting memories, get this ASAP

Bill's Bend is A-1 Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on December 28th, 2012
If you're looking for a logical, organic way to use pendulums and a key bend in a routine that engages the entire audience, this is the effect! This is especially true for mentalists (although I think it works perfectly well for magicians and speakers/entertainers of all stripes) who struggle (as I have) to find an effect that is clear, involves the entire audience, doesn't use big props or electronics, and is easy enough to do so that you can concentrate on ENTERTAINING the audience. This is going into my parlor show immediately and I expect it will be one of the highlights. Thanks, Dr. Bill!

Dr Bill's Bend by Dr Bill Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on December 27th, 2012
I enjoyed reading the many variations on the key bend and will incorporate this into my act for teenagers as it moves quickly and has a clear goal. Disappointed that because the internet is not world wide I am unable to see Steve Cohen's demonstration either on I Tunes or Amazon. (Both paid downloads) It has yet to be broadcast on Australian TV so I must wait. I'm off to Mister Minit to get a whole collection of old used keys!

I'm a huge fan of Bill's thinking, and this definitely didn't disappoint! It's such a simple concept, but it's a perfect blending of ideas to create a strong and visual mental demonstration!

Stunning magic for your audience! Report this review
Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on December 31st, 2012
I've been using pendulums since I was about 9 ( in the 1960's ). In the 80's I learned a routine from Doc Hilford.

Dr. Bill's Bend is INCREDIBLE! Steve Cohen,"The Millionaire's Magician", that performs in New York City, performs Dr. Bill's Bend. You can see Steve's performance on his History Channel special. Anytime a full time, working Professional Magician adds something to their act, you know it has to deliver and Dr. Bill's Bend delivers in spades!

Get this and start performing magic and not just "tricks"!

Agree with all comments GOOD! Report this review
Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on December 23rd, 2012
May as well be the first review. I don't know if I purchased this from Bill because I already owned all his other stuff or I really thought it may be good or perhaps I was simply curious?

All three came true. I do own all his other stuff and after purchasing his Bend I realized WHY I own all his other stuff.

It's all GOOD!

Nice routine but old bending method Report this review
Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on July 3rd, 2013
I really like the routine, but the bending method is well known.
So what you are paying is more for a routine than for a method.

Needs commitment, but huge payoff Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on June 4th, 2013
Ok I've had this along time now and been playing with different performance styles. I now use this as either a one off demonstration, or as an after performance "show me something else" effect. I believe that with a good performance this will absolutely floor any laymen.
The actual method may not be anything new. I had already come across this in a few other sources, but what you get in this product is Dr Bills little subtleties and psychology. This is worth the price you pay, alone. Even if you don't perform the bend the techniques around selling the effect will be valuable to any performer. I'd also recommend any one to buy Dr bills book on pendulums, another great piece of magical literature.
I've been carrying a key on a string for many years, mainly due to Jay Sankey's leaving home. So this was a great fit for me. I can see this effect being apart of both my working set and an impromptu piece for the foreseeable future.

best bend out there Report this review
Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on January 3rd, 2013
Folks, this bend is so good, DONT BUY IT. Seriously. go buy another one. Leave this one for those of us that bought it already so it doesnt get seen more and more. The workers will love this and it deserves to be in the hands of only a few! haha seriously - this is the best bend routine Ive seen - and Ive seen dozens and dozens. This has reason and purpose in EVERY action - something so many routines desperately lack. It makes sense and the moves are within the reasons which cloak it perfectly. It becomes real magic - not a "oh he did sleight of hand". Its well documented, the depth of the descriptions and routine is well written. This bend has become not only my primary bend, but one of the core effects in my show. Its a money maker. and a darn good one.
