Clean strong effect Report this review
Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on February 12th, 2014
I had the privilege of seeing the effect in action a few months ago. This effect is ultra clean , there are no gimmicks just the paperclip.
One of those tricks where you think Damn i wish id have thought of that.
The bend can be done hands off,in the spectators hands, even in a glass or inside a resealable bag (ziplock) it really is limited to the imagination.
Nobody will be disappointed with this.

Cool effect but doesn't work as well as shown in video Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on February 24th, 2014
I was so excited to get this trick. - I have been waiting for it for weeks. Now that I finally received it and have had a chance to practice it, I have to say that I am a little disappointed.

No matter how hard I have tried, I have yet to get the paper cliup to bend past 90 degrees. I have proably gone through 30 paper clips - carefully preparing each one and the result is always the same. The paper clip will bend 60 degrees, maybe 90 degrees if I'm lucky.

That said, it is still super cool to have the paper clip bend 90 degrees. However, if you think that it will look like it does in the promo video then you may be disappinted also.

Very Good but... Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on February 24th, 2014
I love metal bending. I saw this and thought "No Way! It can't be that good." Well, it is that good. A very great and simple method. Takes seconds to make a gimmick. Replacements really cost pennies.

Sadly, like one other guy, I can't get my clip to open the full 180. I will buy some more clips and try again. It's a great method, so I'm not faulting that.

The BEST! Report this review
Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on February 20th, 2014
Chris Hanowell cracked the code with Bently! Carrying a paperclip looks so natural ( a.k.a. organic ). Not only can Bently be used in replace of spoon pending in restaurants, it can also enhance it for a longer routine.

You will perform Bently EVERYWHERE and for EVERYONE you can. Why? because it looks like real magic!

A++++

"Partial" Bently Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on March 2nd, 2014
This is a pretty good idea. I purchased this then waited in anticipation for this to restock and ship. The trailer demo has it work perfectly...but they have the ability to do retake after retake until the effect works right. In the real world, it has to work at the time you take it out to do the effect, which is the first time. I have prepared around 75 of these paper clips, bought them at all the different places they suggest to buy them, (just in case one brand worked better than the other) but I have yet to get a single clip to open past one third of what the demo shows. None have opened even close to what they do on the demo. I wanted this to be good, but if you're looking for an effect that you know will work when you pull it out to perform for someone, this isn't it. Trust me, if you pull this out to demonstrate to someone and it works as well as the demo, you will be just as amazed as the spectator.

Like, not love Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on February 26th, 2014
I like the the idea of the effect. The method will make you say: "Are you serious? Why didn't I think of this!". I would give it 5 stars if I could make it bend completely without using the bonus methods included. I haven't been able to bend one more than 100 degrees (demo bend is 180). Other than that, it's a great effect and I don't regret purchasing it.

Very Clever Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on February 27th, 2014
I love effects that are visual and use simple, real-world objects. Bently meets these requirements, and then some. It's important to know that although the paper clip is real (and you can buy them at Wal-Mart, Target and elsewhere), the clip has been altered, which takes about 30 seconds. Also, in it's new state, the clip can easily break after a few performances, so it's best to have several made up. Also, in order to hand out the clip, it must be switched. This is certainly not an issue for me, but it may be for some. The trick is angle proof (except the switch), and it really does look as good as the video. If you like the effect, go for it - at this price you won't find a visual paper clip bend that's better.

Good, but... Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on February 22nd, 2014
Bently is a very great idea, but the actual "bending" doesn't look nearly as smooth in real life as it does in the video. The paperclip is also a certain type of paperclip, and it doesn't really open up all the way as portrayed in the video.
However, for the price, this is a fantastic concept and has the potential to be a great trick in the right hands.

The BEST I've ever seen! Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on February 21st, 2014
When I first heard about this, I said "impossible". Then I saw the videos others have posted on youtube performing Bently. I was stumped. So I made an upgrade in my shipping to "Overnight" and I am now a proud owner of it. It was WORTH it. I'll have to admit I laughed out loud when I saw what the secret is. Sheer brilliance and makes you say "Why didn't I think of that?" You will certainly enjoy performing this. I know I will. As I'm writing this review I'm watching one of my paper clips bending on the table. It is that CLEAN! I would have kept this effect to myself. This is way better than the other expensive paper clip gimmicks out there! This is going straight into my act and I will always carry one from now on!
