Sweet Variation Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on March 18th, 2015
Rick, per usual, does a fine job explaining this new variation of the illusion.
Simple enough and we really get to "play the part of a magician" when presenting this illusion.

It is now part of my repertoire.

One thing though (and this does NOT remove a star) is that
the coin cannot be signed. That was not made clear to me
since I can bend a signed coin now.

HOWEVER, the 'script', the gimmicks and this new look at the
trick is so well worth the price.

Three thumbs up for Rick and Company

Tim Has Something Great Report this review
Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on March 17th, 2015
It's a dime bend that takes place in two phases. First the dime is heated up in your hands, then the dime bends in the spectator's hand. Of all of Tim's great ideas, this one is probably my favorite. I love the idea of using one gimmick to both create the heat illusion and to facilitate the bend. Super-clever thinking.

Tim Trono published a version of this trick a while back in Real Secrets, and I asked him about the inspiration for it. He said this,

"I recalled an item I saw (using a completely different method) where David Copperfield squeezed a piece of coal and it changed with light and smoke to a diamond. I loved this effect and it somehow must have stayed in my mind and influenced me."

It's that combination of the radiating light and the state change that's so powerful. It's a great example of taking a strong magic trick that doesn't have a 'visual moment'...and adding a visual moment. In a way that makes sense.

It's easy to do, but the download is packed with subtitles. Also, you're going to get the new gimmick that will allow you to do the trick. And yes, this gimmick really is new. It's an update of an older gimmick but this one is super-bright, which allows for this 'radiation effect.' (Meaning...if you know the gimmick here...you don't ever directly show it [as you do in the traditional presentation], so the brightness is an issue, solved by this new gimmick...).

This is just an amazing worker!! Report this review

I was skeptical about this effect because of the price it seemed cheap. But it's not if you're a close up magician you'll love this. It's easy to do and yes you can do table hopping. The gimmick is amazing it's better than ever before. It's easy to bend a dime. the handling is just simple and amazing you end clean & it is truly amazing. Great job with the idea Tim. also thanks to Dalton wayne,Bizzaro,Shocker, and Justin flom that helped with the handling and presentation. They are only mentioned in the reveal, but you need to know who worked on it.

Nice idea ! Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on March 21st, 2015
First off...this is nothing new. As said in the description, this is a bunch if things combined to make up one effect. With that said, i still enjoyed seeing these concepts combined to make up this effect. It is an easy trick to perform and it gets a good reaction from people i've shown so far. It is not angle sensitive and the coin leaves the spectator with a great souvenier. There IS a way to have the coin signed, however that is something taken a step further that is not explained. I'm sure those eager to have a coin signed can figure it out. I don't think signing the coin is necessary. As magicians we tend to try and fool ourselves and forget that a unsigned coin is just as amazing to the laymen. For the 20 bucks i would say get it. You do get two gimmicks (you may have them already). So the trick pays for itself right there with the gimmicks. They are new and improved versions of the older ones (again, worth the money just to see exactly how much improved the gimmicks were....and they ARE IMPROVED). i would recommend it to another shopper :)

Nice Report this review

This coin bend is a nice way to make the coin bend trick more fun and spectator interactive. I will say it is moderately smooth but will require some practice.

the demo doesn't do this justice Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on May 10th, 2016
The gimmick idoes glow bright red, and the routine is nicely motivated.
Use it for the provided presentation or anytime you need the extra visual when you heat up something (like a blister effect).

The routine uses a dime so that it fits inside the gimmick, but if you use a curved quarter instead of a sharply bent quarter, you should be able to fit it in too.

Not bad Report this review

Even if you don't do this coin bend specifically, you can apply the variation "melt" to the one you do now or even a completely different effect.
