If you handle the gimmicks right and perform it right, you can perform this in front of spectators
and they don't suspect a thing. You do have to handle two gimmicks but they are so deceptively made,
spectators won't notice it while its right in front of them. The routine is clever. The misdirection
is built right in so they are easily distracted while you do the deed. With something like Quantum
Bender that uses just one gimmick, you still have to do something while they are watching you so I
suspect using that gimmick has a greater chance of being caught, but I don't have it so I suppose it
depends how you are instructed to use it. I do know that I performed Coinvexed tonight and the two
friends didn't notice a thing. What I did flew right by them!

There is a reason why Morgan gave David penn that amazing statement. I've got this today and watched
the DVD and this is the only way people should be bending coins (no joke). David has put so much
thought into this and that is one of the reasons what makes this so good. And plus the
gimmick/gimmicks are in plain sight the whole time and the spectator won't even notice. I don't have
any complaints about this trick all all it's just amazing and I will keep this on me 24/7. And every
write reviews on this it's just amazing.

I don't leave home without it!! That's all I have to say.

I've had this for a few years and I've performed it many, many times. The quality of the product is
holding up very well over the years; it still works like new.
Also, this is actually
pretty fun to perform. There's a lot of room for improvisation and to tailor this to your character.
It's not quite so routine-driven, if that makes sense.
I'm sure you do like I do -
whenever I'm learning a new trick, most of the first people I perform for are friends and family. So
here's the thing: this is the one effect that everyone I know always talks about, even years later.
It is THAT memorable. One of my closest friends often tells me how she still has that quarter, the
one that somehow I bent in her hand. I've heard her brag to other people that I have this ability.
My mom is the same. She's often telling me, "I still don't know how you did that thing with the
quarter..." and of course, everyone I've performed this for still has kept their souvenir quarter.
Safe to say: this effect leaves a lasting impression.
It may have to do with my
presentation. Coinvexed is the climax to my routine where I talk about imagining coins doing this
and doing that. (I precede this effect with a few other coin effects, including Imagination Coins by
Garret Thomas.) When you convince someone that THEY have bent the coin with their own imagination,
they don't soon forget it. Oh, sure, they know it was me and not them...but you can see they are
thinking, "what if...just, what if?" They know that I do tricks, but this? They really do seem to
feel it's magic. It's powerful.
The point is, of all the magic I have ever performed for
friends and family, this is the one effect they always remember and want me to repeat. (Which, of
course, I never do!) Pricy, perhaps, but this effects pays off.
I was very pleased with this set of gimmicks. It's very well made and is effortless to perform. The
misdirection is built right in and in fact I have found this much easier to perform than my quantum
bender 3. Because there is NO HEAT where it shouldn't be. I just bent the coins right in front of
them and no a single soul noticed. I could have bent 3 in front of them before anyone would catch
on. REMEMBER - these props are just tools. What makes it magic is your presentation and the quality
of your misdirection and your skill levels in audience management. That's the REAL secret behind
If you wanna bend coins in real time this is what you need to but the gimmick is well made and looks
so powerful .
David Penn set the bar high with the release of the original "Coinvexed".
Because David is
an actual working Professional, he's always thinking about maximizing what he does for an audience.
We get to reap the rewards by David's release of Coinvexed 3rd Generation.
It is simply
the finest, most ingenious, coin bending system ever released!
A+++++ on this masterpiece!
Though slightly expense this is a mind blowing gimmick that will always melt the spectators minds.
The DVD it comes with is very informing and covers everything you need to know and gives you 3 good
routines to choose from. As for the gimmick itself it will last a life time and is extremely
conspicuous overall i love the product and believe it is worth price due to how easy it is to use
and the fantastic reactions it gets.
I have to give it 4 stars because I don't use it. I am still using the superman 2.0 because the
gimmick fits better in my hands during the bend. With coinvex 3rd I need a lot more misdirection,
more force and a bigger motion to do the bend. I use Canadian coins but the gimmick seems to be made
for slightly bigger coins.
The DVD however is very good and worth watching on its own merit,
lots of good ideas and bits for any coin bending routine.
