This is a very weird trick, but with practice you can do it right. This is a trick I would not recommend for beginners.
If you do get it be sure to have spare coins.
I just replaced my first one! It's that good! Report this review

This was the first item I bought from Penguin Magic, and I paid more than $ 100. It has been my favorite effect for one-on-one or small groups for several years. I've gained a reputation. People I've never met come up to me at conferences and ask me to bend coins because someone told them about me doing it before. The weight and style is so cool, too, that it looks like an expensive pen. Mine even survived two trips through the washing machine. Unfortunately, I either misplaced it or someone picked it up.
I just received my replacement. I was worried because the price was less than half the original one. I thought they may have changed the manufacturing or materials to lower the cost. However, this is almost exactly like my first one. The only difference is a minor change. Now the ballpoint can be retracted. (I took the ballpoint out of my first one because it can be painful to finger palm that end.)
BTW, I also have a Superman. It works well and is less expensive. However, you have to wear a jacket with sleeves. (Hint: I almost missed my flight when I forgot the Superman was in my jacket. I had to explain a lot to airline security.)
I've never had problems with ditching the Boa Pen, though. I often nonchantly put it back together right in front of my audience while they are looking at the bent coin. It looks like I'm just fidgeting with my pen. I've been asked to examine the pen, but no one has ever discovered the gimmick. They usually assume that I bent the coin around the pen shaft, a pretty amazing feat in itself if I had.
I like Jay Noblezada's idea about ditching the two halves in my back pockets when wearing jeans. That works great, too. But I wouldn't worry too much. Just don't make a big deal out of putting the pen away and no one seems to notice since they are amazed at the bent coin.
The replacement also includes better instructions and one new handling where the coin "bends" in the spectator's own hand. I haven't tried it, but I will soon.
Buy this thing! You will love it and will blow other people's minds with it. (And it'll cost you less than half what my first one did.) Just work on your finger palming and be bold about ditching the gimmick afterwards.
Right Under Their Nose Report this review

The Boa is such an ingenious piece of equipment. The fact that the "magic" happens right under their nose and they have absolutely no clue is such a great feeling to magicians. This device is strong, and will last you a lifetime. More importantly, this does NOT LEAVE MARKS ON THE COIN! a must for coins that are going to be examined!
penguin needs to raise the limit to ten stars for this one! Report this review

This is the greatest gimmick ever invented! I carry it everywhere I go. In fact, at the movies yesterday when the lady gave me my change after getting my popcorn I asked her if she knew what was wrong with my quarter, I said I thought it felt a little different. I asked her to see if she cold scratch it or even tell the difference, she said no. So I picked it up. I held it right in front of her eyes and bent the quarter, dropped it in her hands and she screamed like a little girl. It was hilarious. Everyone was looking. I give this gimmick two thumbs way up!
Not What You Think Report this review

The trick is a good idea, but it is bulky and heavy. It takes a lot more practice than you would expect and it's hard to get the quarter to be bent nicely enough for it to seem believable. I personaly don't think it's worth the money.
GREAT!!!!!! Report this review

BOA Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on February 27th, 2005
Personally, I love the BOA device, I have yet to use it due to the technical aspect, which needs to be perfected. But overall, the effect is simply wonderful. What could be better? It is also the perfect ally to 'The Closer'.
