Come on guys. Not everything works perfect EVERY time. It has worked perfect for me 98-99 percent of
the time. I just click again if it didn't catch the first time
I love the original HOT LEADS so
much I bought a second one and my first one still works fine.
You can hide that little click as
your talking. very easy.
I LOVE IT!!!!!!
This is a really cool way to hand out your business cards with style. The trick itself is really
cool but honestly, the way you present it will either make or break the effect. If you haven't used
any of Jim Pace's stuff then you are missing out. He puts out some really great stuff and this in no
exception. You don't even need special cards. Just use your own.
Hi! This is your official PenguinMagic reviewer, B_Magic.
This effect is a great way to
hand out your business cards! Jim Pace is a very cool and practical guy, and this may well be one of
his crowned jewels. It's a really smart and awesome way to make yourself memorable.
said, it's not really a great "magic" effect. After years of doing this, I've found that most people
aren't taking this as a magic effect as much as an entertaining and cool thing to see. Much like
juggling, people may be entranced by it, but its not something that makes people feel like something
miraculous or paranormal happened.
Be aware that many business cards do not work with Hot
Leads, so do your homework and make sure it will work for you before purchasing.
I've had Hot Leads wallets not work for me in the past, and have had to ship out for replacements.
Jim Pace was really cool about it though and sent me replacements quickly. There were just things
about it I didn't like. In fact, the one I have now has been largely modified by me, and I think it
works better than the one I originally purchased.
It's a good effect and definitely a
memorable way of handing out a business card. Just be careful not to expect "magical" reactions all
the time from this.
This was my favorite ending for my walk around magic. I would pull out my card, it was on fire. This
would get great reactions from other people at the restaurant, then I would know what table I'm
going to perform for next.
Unfortunately I went to a higher quality card and it can no
longer soak up the lighter fluid. I won't sacrifice the quality or design of my card for this trick.
But for the few years I used this, it was one of my favorite ways to present my card.
Great way to hand out business cards and add a touch of danger to your magic. The gimmick can be
noisy if not handled properly, but that can be disguised by misdirection and presentation. All in
All an item that should be in the pockets of all working magicians!
I got this because I liked the idea of handing out my business card in a unique way but
realistically this effect doesn't work too well. It was fun to play around with for a few minutes
but I've not used it properly since opening it because it's not totally reliable.
i dont think its the WORSt as some people will say, but the wallet is well made, smart, and pulling
out your card on fire (note not just business card) will get peoples attention. very visual for
close up and stage alike
I bought this item but never used it in my performances. The gimmick is noisy and the method
resulted to be a little unpractical for my purposes. I'm not saying you would not be able to make it
work but even if you do, you have to be very careful and maybe won't be able to use it in many
venues because you are dealing with something that is really burning...
I never write a review of a product I purchase. But this could not escape me. This is the worst
effect I have purchased hands down. It continues to surprise me how people can sell junk and pass
it off as a good effect. The greatest magic trick being pulled off by people like mr Pace is making
you belive something is more than it appears to be. save your money, do not buy this item. The
gimmick is exactly what this is, a gimmick. I thought it was a joke when i opened it first. It
says it is for professional use only, the instructions and details were not very professional.
Never worked from the day I got it... basically expensive junk
