Have magicians got lazy? WOW!
Did you know that there was a time when magicians would setup a magic effect and wait hours or even days for the right moment to make the magic happen? That's dedication!
Now everyone cries "to much work","Not practical", To much setup" REALLY? Magic is an art its not a convenience. Shin Lim's S.S.S is smoke from anywhere. He gives ideas on how to use it but you don't have to use a card mat.I'm not! Use your imagination. You can put the device anywhere at all. small illusions, sleeves, clothing, cards , and on and on .......
its an inexpensive way to produce smoke that's limitless to your imagination. Hey Look! I just put the S.S.S gimmick on my Zombie ball Gimmick. now it floats behind my cloth with a beautiful mysterious cloud of smoke. Get S.S.S and don't be lazy.

I wrote a review a long time ago only giving it 2/5 but now I have actually made the gimmick and it is amazing!!!!!!!!!!! It is all totally worth it once you make the gimmick. You can customise your gimmick to your likings! It's a cheaper more customisable pure smoke with extra affects!!!! It really is worth it guys. Just keep your mouth shut until you make the gimmick and you will see how useful this DVD is. SSS is a tool, not a trick, please think about that. If you like smoke buy SSS and you will come up with infinite ideas and variations. It will add some cool effects to your magic!
very disappointing Report this review

I received this DVD after much anticipation and have to say that I have already given it to a magician friend of mine (who after watching it hates it also). This is something that requires soooooo much set up and certain limitations to how and when it can be performed that I would never use it. I know there is a lot of anticipation for this trick, but you may want to think twice before investing your $30 in this trick. If I could do it again, I would spend it on something else on Penguin
So Disappointing Report this review

I have ordered A LOT of magic over the years, and I have not been as excited as I was about this DVD in a long time. I will never use it. After watching the DVD, there is absolutely WAAAAY too much set up!! He does teach how to do this standing up, but most of it has to be done with a table or sitting down. Trust me, I wanted to like this and was definitely wanting to use this. Unfortunately, neither are true. I will be putting this in the drawer. So disappointed
CLOSE UP MAT Report this review

This is ONLY good if you do alot of magic on a close up mat cant say why with out revealing the method but i cant stress enough how much you need a mat, there is one "bonus variation" where it isnt in a mat but thats not so good. Im sure you can come up with a few hookups your self but i dont like this. Had higher hopes for this

Very disappointing.. i can't reveal what makes it so disappointing but i can say that you wont use this. There is way too much setup and the possibilities are very limited. Only by watching the intro of the DVD i already decided not to even spend money on making the gimmick.
Waaay to much set up Report this review
Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on February 14th, 2013
This is the second time I have tried to post a review for this trick, so hopefully this one will show up. I have ordered thousands of magic tricks over the years, and I cant remember the last time that I was as excited about receiving this one. However, I can also say that I have never been as disappointed as I am with this purchase. There is absolutely way too much set up and this is not practical at all. Trust me, you will never ever use this. I had such high hopes for this. Unfortunately, this is going in the drawer.
Just Bad Report this review

Was really excited by this but was SOO disappointed... If like me you wanted to go to the bar and do the cup filling up with smoke, then you will need to whip out your close up mat before performing, which kind of kills the magic moment.
Sorry shin, but this is really no good for anyone!
Fism act Report this review
Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on February 11th, 2013
It look great on the tv, very disapointed, mr,fism act though will be beter.. been doing magic for long time and if youre a magician rest worker or walk around this will not work for you i agree the gimick for 40 bucks or so like he say, but very dificult to conceal or do in real life, not recomended save your money , poor editing dvd he drops all the props, all the time and dont explain all the trailer, like everybody does in theyr dvds,if you like SMOKE from anywhere, there better products out there...

Shin shows you 3 technically 4 variations of using sss but please do not think sss is some portable multi tasking new to the market device. There are 5 variations and actually 4 different gimmicks. The reason I found the trailer rather misleading is because yes you can perform surrounded... But only with one variation. Yes you can perform it sleeveless... But only with one variation. All the variations but 2 which are both very similar seem to be the big idea between sss and these are not sleeveless and one of them you can't be surrounded, both of them really and these 2 variations use a magicians mat. The other 2 variations are more of a lecture note or bonus and shin doesn't really recommend these variations. The DVD was not really good, he mumbled a lot and repeated things and things like that and the DVD could have been much shorter. The gimmick is not something new, this DVD just shows you how to make your own gimmick and different ways of using it. Shin needed to spend more time making the DVD and that's it actually, people are disappointed because it is not what you expect. Remember this, shin is showing you how to make your own pure smoke for only and different variations and that's pretty good for !!! That is why I give it an extra star and liked it.
