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!
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.

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 own Roy keuppers superman, and I do the trick short sleeved, and I get really great reactions.

If you've ever done coin bending routines, then you know that there is preparation involved. This product eliminates that. With this tool, you can have the spectator take out their own coin and sign it before even handing it to you. I must warn you that the clean up is a bit tricky but once you practice it you'll get it down. If you really like coin bending routines, this is probably the cleanest looking. Only one coin is use and no duplicate signatures are needed. A truly great product.
Expensive and impractical Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on April 2nd, 2010
while it may have the appeal as a magician fooler because there is no coin switch, if you are doing this for laypeople, you are better off with any of the dozens of coin bends that exist out there. there are much better items you could spend 60 bucks on
its good, but not good enough Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on July 3rd, 2007
I like the Boa Coin Bender but there are so many other items you can get with the money. Try getting "in the beginning there were coins", theres a great bend in there. Or get a book that teaches the bobo switch, and you are set. Yes, I know that with the BCB you can bend a signed coin, but honestly, its not worth it. it may seem better to you as the performer, but the spectator isn't missing anything. it's a great item, dont get me wrong, it's well made and makes ok bends, but take my advise and pass this item up.
Penguin Report this review
Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on January 12th, 2007
They tell you how to do this on Spun and Penguin there is another bend that I prefer called the superman coin bend. My friend let me try his out for a week and you can bend a coin on the spot and roll your sleeves up and it can be signed. So this is a good product but i would like it if Penguin sold Superman here.
[Editor's note: Penguin Magic does sell Superman by roy Keuppers]
Great TOOL Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on February 14th, 2006
I use this as a tool rather than the full 'effect' that comes with it.
Combine this with Morgans 'closer' or 'spun' and you've got a truly amazing coin bend that is both practical and usable.
There's a knack to getting the perfect bend but after 5-6 goes you'll be bending in seconds.. So much easier than carrying a toolbox wherever you go!!!
Stunning! Report this review
