I have been doing this for over 10 years. I usually perform Gregory Wilsons recap first then the pen
through dollar. Great little routine, afterward I tell them "heres the real trick" I proceed to put
their bill in my pocket. Every time without fail they tell me to keep it. Buy it, master it, use it.

I REALLY like the stealth pen. Over all of the other products out there for pen through dollar, THIS
is the best. Of course it's not really much different, but it seems like Penguin is known most for
it which says something for a customer. If you are looking for a DURABLE gimmick to freak out your
friends with, THIS is where to go. But overall the pen looks really nice and I personally have not
had ANY trouble with it. I lost the tip once but that was my own fault and they sell replacements :P

I have had three of this pen(one I lost) so I bought two more. This gimmick is practical and easy to
use. The pen can be easily examinable right after performance with a super simple and quick move.
Also if you end up losing the tip like I have, you can buy a replacement separately on penguin. I
have even used it as a regular pen. It can be incorporated with a Recap or any other pen routine.
Let me get this straight right now. I love this magic trick. The concept of the pen is absolutely
GENIUS and REMARKABLE. What's so great is that you can write with the pen before and after you do
the trick. YOU WRITE WITH IT. The cap fits and after you finish, you can literally hand it out for
examination. People can do whatever they want with it, but they'll never know it's a gimmick. This
gets GREAT reactions.
This isn't the first time I've bought this product. I love this pen through product. I was worried
that people would guess the pen but even my friend that was just getting into magic thought I
switched the bill and he loved it. For the price you can't go wrong. Also I prefer the expert
I already had the trick pen thru dollar thru by Oz Pearlman. Love this to perform especialy the
routine Oz teaches on the dvd pen thru dollar thru. I just needed a new one because my pens i got
with the dvd gave up on me because i had them where it was too hot so they started leaking ink
that's why i bought a new pen. So the key here: store them where it's not too warm. I give this 4*
because when peforming the routine tought by Oz 1 out of 10 people will check the bill giving away
the effect. All but all a great effect and highly recommended!
I honestly thought that the secret behind this trick is too obvious and that people will get it, but
no, it's completely the opposite. I borrowed 10$ bill from a friend and he freaked out when I pushed
the pen through it, but when he saw everything was okay with the bill even though it sounded like I
ripped it he was really amazed. All in all, it gets better reactions than you might think :)
If in the right hands this is a great piece of magic.I have used a few different styles of this
trick on the market and this is one the better ones as it is fully examinable at the end if done
right and as far as some people have said that there is no dvd etc it comes with a downloadable
video from penguin which is great but with this trick like alot of others it really needs someone
with imagination to make this one shine.
I work in a warehouse where you have to carry a pen
with you pretty well all the time and this was a great way to introduce magic into a usually boring
environment, from opening it to performing well was only a matter of hours but dont get me wrong
more you use the better the effect can look.
In magic, I always look for items that will last forever, items that for the money I spend will be
in my arsenal to be used over and over and pack a large punch. The pen through dollar effect is
definitely one of them, and this pen is priced beyond fair. For $10, you'll have a quality pen
through dollar that will last you the years if you take care of it, and in case you lose a piece of
the gimmick, the replacement is only half the price! Well done on this one Penguin!
