Misled by Timothy Wenk What more could you ask for? Misled was created by FISM award-winning inventor Timothy Wenk and performed exactly as described in this booklet by David Copperfield on international television!
Out of stock.
A 20 dollar bill and (in most cases) a pencil are borrowed from a member of the audience. The borrowed bill may be marked for later identification if desired.

I purchased Misled about two years ago and when I first looked at it, the method was very different from what I thought it would be! I think you'll enjoy that aspect of it. The illusion created by this gimmick is terrific, yet this gimmick also has some limitations...
1)You must use a pencil (Which in some cases it may seem weird to pull a pencil out of your pocket instead of using a pen)
2)That pencil has to be of a specific type for the trick to work
3)It is angle sensitive on side and back views
4)It is very fragile and CAN break if you aren't careful with it. (Mine hasn't broken)
Those things being said, when the conditions are right to perform this, it is a GREAT illusion that I think people will remember for a long time.
Great effect. Report this review

If you don't like this effect, it has to be because you've not practiced it enough to make it smooth and natural. How can someone argue with an effect that brought Copperfield down off of his thousands and thousands of dollars worth of props to perform in the faces of his audience?
This effect is misleading (no pun intended) in the sense that you feel as though you might be able to perform this properly very quickly. Don't be "Misled". Practice this until it's simply second nature, and you'll be thrilled with the outcome. About the time you think you've got it, you'll want to spend another week performing it a few times per day, and then you'll be ready to unleash it in a close-up environment. If you've got some distance between you and your spectators, you can cut off the last week, as the distance alone will hide the last vestiges of gimmickery (is that a word?).
I very much recommend you pick this up. It's a great effect, and it's a staple in the magician's learning process.
The best trick.... Ever! Report this review

Misled is absolutely, the best money penetration out there. Gimmicked pens don't even come close to Misled. The first part of the trick is convincing enough, but the second part will blow your socks off. If you don't believe me, watch the preview video of Oz, he truly does a great job. David Copperfield did this trick on one of his tv specials. Misled will take time to learn. It comes with a booklet that thoroughly explains the routine and gives valuable tips which will help in the future. You can use just about any pencil and ANY Bill. If the gimmick should ever break, there is even a replacement coupon included! Misled is not hard, but you will need to practice to get the handling down. If anybody isn't astounded by this trick, they're crazy and should be incarcerated. Congragulations to Timothy Wenk for such a great invention. This is the best trick I own. At this price, it's a complete bargain

One of the first times I performed this trick, the man gave me a bill to make sure it wasn't gimmicked, then when I peirced his bill and restored it, I got to keep the bill. I guess these tricks can end up paying for themselves. I would strongly recommend this effect to fellow Penguins.
The Best pencil and bill magic EVER!!! Report this review

Just watch the demo again and Click Add to the Cart.
You can entertain you audcience with this magic over and over. This magic was on one of Korean Movies.
The actor in that movie performed Tearing and Restoring
newspaper, Matrix, and MISLED. He performed MISLED in front of his wife and gave it to her for examination.
She ACTUALLT RIPPED the bill trying to push it Through!!!
It really happened when they were making the film.
She made NG because of ripping the bill and shot that scene again. This is really really really best pencil and bill magic. Thanks to Timothy Wenks for great creation!!!
I give 5 out of 5.
P.S. The only defect of this magic is that if you don't practice enough and don't maintain the distance between the audience, it might get revealed. Enjoy your practice!!!
MISLED IS GREAT Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on June 19th, 2003
Misled is a great trick you can carry around and do almost anywhere. I Have done it for a couple people, and a group of people and it works great for both. The penetration part is so convincing, and when the pencil melts through the bill, people just look at me with the expression of: "what the....". But I gave it a 4 out of 5 because the melting part has to be done extra carfully if you want to pull it off right. Other than that it is awesome.

Simply jaw dropping Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on July 8th, 2003
Misled is to me the finest of all "pen thru" tricks I've ever seen and owned. This trick requires some practice and a smooth move in the ending to be able to hand the bill and pencil out to full examination. Once you master this you'll find yourself with one of the most stunning illusions. Perfect, jaw dropping - be aware that the audience might just tear the bill and pencil to pieces trying to figure it out - yes indeed, it's that good. It's the melt through that astonishes, and it's the only melt through trick I've seen that allows for a small fast move to a full examination. Real value for money.
BEST CLOSEUP TRICK EVER Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on July 15th, 2003
I can't ask for anything more in a close-up trick. Both the pencil and dollar bill can be borrowed/examined and with just a hidden gimmick, which is invisible from a distance of around 3 feet, you can make impossible looking magic that those other gimmicked effects(editorial modification) can't even come close to doing. This is definitely the last word in a pen/pencil through dollar bill tricks and one of my favorite tricks of all time. I carry this one wherever I go. Perfect for anyone who works at an office or goes to school. With just 1-2 hours of practice you can master the handling and be performing it to everyone you see. Manuscript is very well detailed and worded. Highly recommended!!
