I'm upset there's a cut in the trailer there's something that happens that you don't see in the
trailer that if I would have seen it I wouldn't have bought it. This part that they took out needs
justification to be in the routine (that's probly why they don't want you to see it in the trailer)
if you can justify it wich he dose teach how then your good the effects works. I did it and it got
good reactions. But if your not gonna justify it good they won't be fooled (they won't know the
exsact method but it'll be like "ok you did something with THAT")
Also for myself I know
other mindreading effects that are cleaner nothing to justify cheaper and don't need refills. Go
learn "the perfected center tear" from Richard Osterline that one you can do twice in a row on the
same guy this one you can't they'll catch on. 3 stars because it dose work

I performed this to my friend and he is not easily fooled. He racked his brain trying to figure it
out and he could not. If you perform this right, it really slays people. I was a little sceptical at
first, after having seen the whole performance unedited. A lot of people on magic cafe complained
that the promo was a bit deceptive and didn't show everything the performer does in the routine. Had
I seen the whole unedited performance, I may not have bought it and I was able to get an idea of
the method seeing the whole routine, but performing to spectators will get great reactions.

I can't add much that hasn't already been said. I don't appreciate the editing done on this promo.
It promised things that it couldn't deliver and I almost returned it for a refund. However, as i
took the time to watch the full hour long instruction video i realized that this effect has great
potential. As a stand alone trick I feel like it is ok. As a utility device however I think it is
very powerful. Currently i'm using this in a two phase effect with iPredict and Invisible
deck...but really the possibilities are endless. I gave it four stars simply because it's not what
the demo video presented it to be.

This is really an incredible feat . Spectator takes card , writes what they want and keeps it under
their hand . Yet , to their surprise , you the magician calls out exactly what they put on the card
Fits in your pocket . No strings , magnets , special give away moves .
brilliant ! The kit comes with everything you need to perform this miracle many many times .
Everything is covered , and you are given so many routines with this wonderful gimmick .
This trick is worth 5 times the price , and is so well thought up , that this may as well be

You will be happy when receive this miracle!!!
But not really the best. A part of the trailer was cut out If that part was not cut out, I would
have seen it all and not want to purchase this. However, if performed well, effect is impactful and
Very recomended for evrey mentalist
The secret is so semple and yes you can read the minds
across the phone with this gimike
What's important to know about this before buying is that it works. You have everything you need and
more to do some impressive, no-touch peaks.
For me, it's impractical. It requires three
separate components to work, and it feels unnatural to do in an impromptu situation. For non
impromptu situations their are far easier gimmicks to use. Like impression pads and what-not.
It works, it's just not worth the pocket space for me.
This set is a dream of a presentation...when it comes to the wraparound!!!
The conceot of the
trick is awesome too.
I received this as a free promo item from Penguin. Before opening the package, I watched the
complete instructional video. Now, I wish I could return it. Unopened.
For some this may be the
Holy Grail. But for most, this can't hold a candle to Matt Mello's "Dark Arts," which unlike Steam
2.0 CAN be repeated without giving away the whole trick, DOESN'T require special (costly) cards,
envelopes, pen and handling. Far easier to do, far less likely to fail and it costs only $10! It's
the same trick, with the same (apparently) components and same results!
No, Steam 2.0 is only a
shadow of Dark Arts, and not nearly as much carefree fun to do. I gave it two stars for the unique
"chemistry" it uses.
