The Xpert by Neil Tobin An Indispensable New Utility Device for Mentalists and Magicians. Highly recommended!
Price: $25.00
Out of stock.

Discover a new utility device, one that's already being used by performing mentalists and magicians who appreciate its understated power and seemingly limitless possibilities. Utilizing the subtle principle illuminated in Kenton Knepper's manuscript, X, and launching it into the next dimension, the Xpert makes possible a wide variety of miraculously direct and virtually sleight-free effects, including:

Out of Body Xpert
A borrowed coin is chosen from a handful of change, marked with a participant's initial, has its date noted, and is tightly held in anybody's hands- yet the performer invisibly extracts the coin; it is soon found in the pocket of another participant some distance away!

Xpert Epic The performer clearly and boldly numbers the blank sides of three postcards one through three. Picking up each numbered postcard in proper sequence, the performer shows the number on top and then writes his thoughts beneath. At the conclusion, all three postcards are shown to have correct predictions and may be given away afterward. No forces necessary.

Xpert X-ed Card
A card is freely selected (no force) and kept facedown while its back is visibly marked with a bold X. The cards are mixed, and the performer not so amazingly locates the X-ed card. But then comes the surprise-although the performer is no sleight-of-hand wizard, he is a mentalist: the X-ed card is turned face up to reveal the words "My Prediction" printed on its face. All the cards may be examined or given away. Instant reset, ends clean, no switches.

Xpert Vampire Hunter
A participant selects and signs a card to represent her in the role of "vampire hunter." To represent a vampire, another card is signed with an ankh, the ancient symbol of the immortal; it is then lost within a packet of cards. The participant inserts here card face up into the packet anywhere she chooses: if she's a successful vampire hunter, the vampire will be found just beneath her card. But when the cards are spread, the vampire card is gone! Yet she's successful after all-her signed card is turned over, and inscribed on its back is the vampire symbol! This card is given to the participant as a truly bizarre souvenir. No specially printed cards, no palming, no swamis.

You receive the staple-bound, 16-page, illustrated manuscript and gimmick.

The Xpert is a great utility item that all magicians should have. The best part about this product is that it is an everyday item that no one will ever suspect. There are so many great routines that you can do with this tool too. Just beware that it won't work on all surfaces. You'll need to use some plastic coated cards rather than something made out of paper stock otherwise it won't work. Other than that, it's a great item.

Awesome! I love it!
Creative devise that enables your own creativeness.
You don't have to worry about it not continuing to work as it is possible to remedy that with a very simple method.

not bad Report this review

Don't get me wrong. It's an amazing device if you have any imagination. And it has gotten some good reactions too. Why three stars? Because of the pure fact that the device will not last too long. Then you have to buy it again or buy refills which cost a lot. That probably doesn't matter to some people but to me I can't just keep on buying it again and again. And sometimes the device will just fail. For me, this item just does not suit me and there are other ways to do these effects. So if money is not an issue for you by all means get it. It will make your mentalism magic easier.

I have bought things like the STS, spun, Torn, two dollar window, showoff with cards, invisible deck, and lots more but THE XPERT is the best product I have bought from Penguin. It is like a thumb tip it can be used for many things and you can make up your own routines. I love it and reccomend it to everyone!!!

Too temping for the amateur! Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on April 9th, 2006
Let me start by saying this: The Xpert is a great product. The possibility to amaze and absolutely convince spectators of your supernatural ability with this gaff is above and beyond the majority of magical items. I value skill and handling far beyond gimmicks that you have to carry around, but I always carry around the Xpert.

The routines in the booklet are good in the sense that they can fool easily. However, they are amazing in the sense that with the right patter and timing, you can convince any spectator or magician (who will be looking in vain for a palm or ditch) of the veracity of your powers.

HOWEVER: this is one of those easy to perform, medium practice to master products which YOU MUST MASTER before taking it out of the house. DO NOT BUY THIS if you are going to blow the secret by poor performances and lack of practicing.

WHAT!?? Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on January 11th, 2006
I opened the package and looked at it. I said, "OK, so what? Why did I buy this?" Then I thought back to the demo above and i was BLOWN AWAY. I knew the concept behind the demo, but the way i would preform it before the X-Pert was impossible to pull off, and no one was fooled. I went out and did it with the x-pert and noone knew what happened!

The X-Pert is not a trick (even though it comes with a few possiblities as to what you can do), but a tool that improves your preformance. you can even come up with endless rutines and openerd/closers that are perfict for street/close up magicians.

Buy it! don't worry, it's worth your money, why did I wait this long? I could have had this tool so long ago!!

More than meets the eye Report this review

I opened the package and scratched my head for a few minutes. It's one of those magic items you get, and it doesn't sink in right away what you can accomplish with the Xpert. Neil Tobin has a very nice product here. It really is more than meets the eye. Limitless.

This is by far the best purchase I have made from penguin magic hands down. It is totally easy to use, the amount of performable tricks is infinite, and it always gets good reactions. BEST TRICK I HAVE EVER USED!!!!
