Broken and restored thread is a classic plot in magic. Pros around the world use it because audiences LOVE IT. And it's never used such a common household item until now.

Snap off 5-6 pieces of ordinary dental floss, and fuse them together. No need for special magic props, this stuff is literally everywhere.

Waxed Beats All Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on September 21st, 2015
"Waxed" is a version of "The Gypsy Thread" or "Torn and Restored Thread." This version is taught to you by magician Lonnie Chevrie. With Lonnie, you are in very good hands as he is an excellent teacher. Lonnie is complete yet concise with his descriptions and demonstrations. On occasion, he repeats a couple of moves for you just to be sure you are clear on finger and prop positions.

"Waxed" uses waxed dental floss - the kind that comes in a plastic dispenser, with a snap lid and its own built-in cutter on the inside. The cutter helps immensely as you don't have to deal with breaking the "thread" by hand or by using burning candles to cut the thread.

The thread (floss) set-up is fairly standard, and the wax coating helps with this.

Later, after you have cut off a number of pieces of the floss, the wax coating helps a lot with the next maneuver you have to do with the pieces.

At the finish, you end clean as Lonnie has a neat little move combined with putting the dispenser away in your pocket.

When "Waxed" is set-up and ready to go, it rides around in the dispenser until you're ready to perform! A terrific effect by a terrific teacher! What more could you ask for?

String em up Report this review
Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on September 11th, 2015
Superb. Can be found on the outlaw magic of Lonnie Chevrie which is fantastic. I also recommend the captured dvd by him as well. Best and only version of the thread trick I preform.

Like others stated takes a minute to reset so that maybe something you want to consider. Either that or having a few packs of dental floss on you ready to go. I prefer the patter by starting out... "have YOU ever gotten to the end of a box of dental floss just to find there is not enough."

Of course everybody can relate to this. Then I continue with my patter using the word YOU throughout. Example... " check this out. All you have to do is tear off little pieces like this then you bundle them together like this..." In my experience, this is the emotional hook that allow them to be a part of the magic.

Get this. Very simple to do have never even even been close to being caught. Misdirection is automatic (heat is on restored floss) and clean up is natural. Everybody can relate to and use dental floss...

The best gypsy thread version EVER!! Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on October 22nd, 2015
I was really thinking of keeping this to myself but that would actually be unfair to Lonnie Chevrie. I have experimented with dental floss in my gypsy thread journey because that seemed the most obvious presentation for gypsy thread but somehow missed the mark in the handling and left it eventually. I have always had an issue justifying thread and it's always come with issues of cutting the thread and all that. Lonnies handling is the BEST the best!! Another thing is it plays so much bigger because floss is by nature thicker and has a shine that isn't there with normal thread...If there are any reviews that have less than 5 star's you can ignore them...its the best version out there and I have explored most of them...All I can say is thanks Lonnie for releasing it :-)

Just delightful! Report this review

Fun, easy to perform and taught perfectly. My only suggestion - having tried a number of different floss brands - stick with Reach...it has far more wax than store brands so it's easier to manipulate and it's so familiar to an audience why use a brand that the spectator might believe isn't "normal"?

Fantastic Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on September 12th, 2015
I've spent 5 to 10 times as much for tricks that are now setting in my "drawer of wasted money never to be used illusions". This one however, will be one of my first up, can't screw up little gems that we all look for.
Now, if I could only have the stage presents of Lonnie, i'd be all set.....Maybe a cowboy hat or something...hmmm.

I love this version of Gypsy or Hindu Thread Trick. It solves all of the issues in one simple and every day product. I wish I would have thought of this long ago. I love this effect and it will be a part of my routine as of today. Add to cart.... Thank you Lonnie and Penguin Magic.

Rick Lax Report this review

This a GREAT effect and I have been using it for years. However, it is becoming more and more common on Rick Lax's demos that the entire effect is not shown. Showing his hands completely empty leaves out a step. Same criticism with Diamonds are Forever. You can do better, Rick.

Finally a Gypsy String I WANT to do! Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on September 15th, 2015
I have avoided the gypsy string for a long time until I saw this rendition. I am a dentist and illusionist so this is perfect for me. It is simple, elegant, and it really fools. I true classic that is a LOT easier than using string. It is a lot more visible than thread as well, and it really creates that magic moment that we all strive for. 10/10 worth every penny, shut up and give him your money!

Totally Awesome! Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on April 24th, 2016
Always wanted to perform the Gypsy Thread trick, but could never find a method that was practical in strolling situations. Well, I have now found the definitive work on this excellent trick. Waxed is portable, angle proof, repeatable, and makes sense. Overall, it's the best version I have found. I'll be carrying this with me all the time now. Very, very highly recommend. I would give it 10 stars!!!!!

There are many versions of the Gypsy Thread and I like many of them but this I love as you can buy it off the shelf anywhere and when you perform it you are able to end clean in the easiest way. Just the best way to go !
