Ok, lets start of by saying that I really wanted a pen thru bill for quite a while now. I didn't
mind the magnet pen, exept for the fact that it is inexaminable and looks like crap, I mean sorry
guys but the stealh pen does not look ordinary. I was minutes away from making an order and stumbled
upon this. So lets kick off the actual review.
So, first off this uses a gimmick. The
gimmick itself is basically invisible during the performance, and it is really small and clever. It
also allows you to choose what tipe of pen thru bill you want. Think about it, this looks like
Sharpie thru card by Peter Nardi, only for me personally better. It is THEIR PEN, THEIR BILL. All is
examinable. The second way to perform it is just use the sharp part of the pen and perform it like a
stealh pen! Just puncture it, pull it out and it is undamaged, not as visual but more realistic for
me. Oh by the way, you could show the hole AFTER YOU PULL THE PEN OUT. So to wrap it up:
Props required you have in your drawer
You get to choose, extremely visual or not, like stealh pen
If you think about it, you could
show the hole
Only borrowed objects
With a little creativity, perform surrounded
As far as I see, I can't find any.

I have to say , aside from a few exceptions , there isn't much on the market for less than 10$ that
can accomplish such an amazing effect. I love the fact that for 10$ i have an effect that i will use
for years to come. It takes a little practice to get the handling perfect but well worth it. I take
this with me everywhere i go now. Keep up the great work! thanks.

This is truly a wonderful idea that I will be using for years to come. Well worth the price and the
time I have into this. No more using a gimmicked pen for me. This truly looks and feels like magic
and gets great reactions.

After seeing Pen through finger, I thought this might be something similar that you can create a
great illusion without being prepared because sometimes it's good to know some tricks that does not
involved gimmicks. Well this trick does use a gimmick and you have to be prepared when you're going
to perform it. The cool part is that the idea is to penetrate a pen to a signed billed and both pen
and signed bill can be examined at the end.

Ok, Hole-istic had an OK concept of a non gimmick bill and no gimmick sharpie etc... BUT IT STILL
HAS A GIMMICK!!! I honestly wished this was unique and was some sneaky way to do this illusion...
Plus if you have smaller hands... Well then i highly don't recommend this... I bought this thinking
I would use it a lot... Turns out, my junk bin loves it more than me... DO NOT ADD THIS!!! GET BILL
BREAKER IF YOU WANT A PERFECT MONEY TRICK :D
I like it. It is worth the money. It is a different approach to the old effect.
love the trick easy 2 do but u have watch your lighting cus people might see yout gimmick
WAY TOO MUCH arts and crafts to make a gimmick when this can be done almost IMPROMPTU with a playing
card and a pen.
If you dont own ALL the tools required to manufacture this effect, be
prepared to go out an purchase them. Add the cost of all the items and the price of this download
and its almost the cost of STC.
It will also take you around 20 minutes to put together.
Its priced a little too high, should be under 5 bucks.

So I am not one to purchase a lot of other peoples magic, so when I do I think my opinion should
count for something. I just got done watching this and here are my thoughts:
This is a
really good idea that could be thought out more.
The gimmick is a arts and craft project and if
you are not accustom to that, you are going to give up easily, but if you like a project, keep
The way the gimmick is rung in and out is less than desirable and should of been
thought out better, You are left really dirty in the beginning and the end. But like I said if this
was given just a little more thought this could be a killer effect all the way thru.
actually talk about the effect. I have never ever liked the buttery smooth entrance a pen or bill or
card makes into another object, it does not look real, it looks fake. He says in the download and
the actual product description that the "idea of a pen thru bill has been around a while (ummm John
Cornelius) but not much has been done to evolve it" I think there is a reason for that, I mean how
many of us remember when John pushed that *** pen thru that bill and you could hear the rip and SEE
the actual frays of the bill where the hole was? I bought one instantly from John. There is a reason
it has not been improved , because so far no one has ever been able to come up with a version that
can beat johns, john just took it to that next level. And yes john used a gimmick pen, but it was
self contained and it was easily switched when they were crawling around that bill looking for the
evidence for the hole. With Hole-istic, as presented on the download, there is no justification to
go back into your pocket, or anywhere else to ditch what you need to ditch.
thoughts are this.
I believe that with a little more thought and knowledge this could of been a
hit, unfortunately with where it stands now even at $9.95 it is not worth your time and money for a
method that is sub par at best.
