The pen is good quality, spectators are blown away, the trick is fairly easy to do. The downside is,
it's nearly impossible to do the trick without getting Inck on yourself from the gimmick. The X that
you put on your own hand does not always disappear. The black putty used to hold the gimmick leaves
a black residue on your hand. Every spectator ask to see your hands after the trick and it takes
away from the effect when there is Inck and black residue on your fingers. It's always a huge
disappointment when the instructions don't show up on my penguin magic.

I'm sure he would sell 10 fold if the price was cut in half, but alas, I bought it. Great trick, but
way too much money.

I have had great luck with this device and it is a fantastic effect. That's the good. The bad is
that, for the price, it is not very well made. I have performed this for two months and have had the
gimmick fall apart during a performance. I want to keep doing this trick so I had no choice but to
spend and additional $20 for a replacement. If the trick wasn't so damn good I would just forget it.

The gimmick and the effect are fantastic.
I would have liked for the instructions to be a
little more detailed.

I am just recently getting into magic and illusion. This isn't the first trick I bought off of this
site. But it is the first from this site that I've put into practice. Getting the reactions I get
are priceless. I'm currently practicing doing it one-on-one, so I've only showed maybe 5 people so
far. Every time was an awesome reaction. I showed a co-worker, and he goes, "What are you? Possessed
or something?" And the first person I showed, which was my dad, had the best reaction. Really really

I find this trick great easy and it leaves the spectator with no process of how it is done. The best
part it the way you make the x disappear on your hand. You are left totally clean afterwards, though
I only give it 3 stars because of the price. I understand thirty but any more, well you get this
review. I don't think it is that expensive to produce.

Do not listen to what anyone else says. This effect gets the best reactions. This is the one they
will remember. This is the definition of a worker. Easy to carry around and you will perform this
every day once you put the practice in.

...Always! Throw this in your pocket along with another sharpie and BAM! Minds will be shattered.
That simple. I'm gonna go ahead and say please DO NOT GET THIS. This is just too, too good.

Gimmick well made but I have very sweaty palm so it won't work even uses the method taught. Classic
Ash transfer move was more natural and nobody ever question the move! but for doublecross a very
strong and. Good presentation/crowd management and showmanship to really make this trick work
magical and not doubtful.

It is a neat little trick but it is tooo expensive. It's hard not to get black over yourself and to
get it cleanly onto the spec without double or smearing. Also there isn't much in terms of why you
are doing this trick on the tutorial. Why are you bringing out a marker and having them hold their
hands out? The way it is presented and taught in the instructions people easily and I mine EASILY
figure it out. I am working on finding a small sharpie routine to do along with this to make it more
usable. Like a vanish reappear etc and throw this in as part of it. For the price this should be in
the video presentations and teachings but as is this falls short.
This could have been much
