Self-Working Fun Report this review

Easy to do, self working, very deceptive. Still not sure I understand how it works...
Just buy this Report this review

I bought this just as a fun clever gag. It is way more than that. The first few times I preformed this I got the LOL reaction I wanted. Then I realized people thought I was doing some slick slight to make it appear to move the idea the compass was gimmicked didnt even occur to them. So I started handing them the compass and showing them the exact same moves I did and how it still worked. Then I got some amazing reactions. 1st this is the only gimmick I have owned that i can hand to the spectators, 2nd they fool them selves, and 3rd they finally realize that i wasnt doing slight of hand and instantly check the compass wondering how the hands move and cant figure it out. like another reviewer said, this is the trick of the year and it is only 5 dollars, just awesome.

One of the best tricks I've bought all year. Everyone I've showed it to can't figure it out. Cheap and self working.
Great Little Trick Report this review

This is something that is so simple, yet a lot of fun! I show it to someone with the arrows pointing toward them on both sides, "slide" the arrow a bit and now the top arrow points toward them but the bottom arrow is 45% off. Next, I "slide" the arrow a bit more and now the top arrow points toward them but the bottom arrow is 90% off. They are really surprised to see the arrows are merely painted on the compass. This is a great little trick for kids and makes a great give-away.
Crazy good Report this review

I like this little effect. It isn't a mind-blower, but it can be very entertaining. It is all about performance. A very good "story" effect. If you are looking for something that plays well with all audiences, but is especially good for children then this would be the effect for you.

...I just wanted to say that I still use this lil guy. People really just enjoy it a lot. Besides, you can't EVER go wrong when Rick Lax is involved with teaching you anything. He makes you comfortable with your own talents and teaches everything at a perfect pace.
(I actually wish Rick Lax would redo some of the teaching videos from other tricks I've bought.)
But in all honesty, this is a great trick. You can use it for so many different ideas. You can write your own story/patter.
And above all, it's REALLY fun to perform. Heck, it's even fun to play with like a toy. Helps me get my cylinders firing when I have a creative block, too.
Great for Navigating Rough Waters Report this review

As simple as this prop is, it's actually a solid little piece that you can get some serious mileage out of when accompanied with a funny, entertaining story.
Unexpected effect: Crowd control. I was at a BBQ this past weekend doing various card tricks that generally get good reactions and one spectator was just busting my chops every which way. When I performed the Crazy Compass, she was still throwing shade...after the routine I handed it to her for examination and she was stumped. She even admitted it. Didn't hear a peep the rest of the evening.
simple, yet perplexing Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on December 29th, 2015
I think this falls into the area of magic thought about and written about by Robert Neale and others. This is not about 'tricking' anyone. It's an oddity. It's open for various bits of patter. You could make one yourself and make it look hi tech or ancient and mysterious, whatever. You can share the effect with someone and then let them handle the object. It's not gaffed, they'll be just as mystified playing with it as watching you. For the price especially this is a no brainer. Add it onto an order to reach that magic "free shipping" price :)

This effect proves one VERY important fact in the magic world: You don't have to spend half your paycheck in order to learn a great trick.
Not only is it a wonderful little+ gimmick, but it's nice quality as well.
ehhhh, it's ok Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on November 10th, 2015
Thought it would be more impactful in performance; it's not. It's more of a filler trick to bridge to something more amazing.
