With vanishes, appearances, multiplications and a "jumbo load finale," there's no doubt that cups and balls is an absolute classic of magic. But why do so few magicians actually PERFORM the effect for "real people" on a regular basis? The answer is simple: three large cups are heavy and awkward, too much table space is required for a performance, and there are just too many items to carry!

That's why the MAGUS CAPSULE is a walk around magician's dream! Small enough for a jacket pocket, large enough to pack a lethal punch, the capsule features a revolutionary new design with "built-in misdirection" while adding a quiet touch of class to any performance.

On the special Magus Capsule companion DVD Jay teaches a powerful handful of sleights and techniques including:

  • RETENTION VANISH
  • FALSE TRANSFER
  • POP-UP MOVE
  • SPIDER VANISH
  • KNOCK-OUT & HPC TECHNIQUES
Jay also performs and explains some of his favorite Magus Capsule routines including:
  • SHAKEN, NOT STIRRED
  • NESTING INSTINCT
  • THREE BALLS ACROSS
  • TIME CAPSULE
  • WILD FIRE
This DVD also includes 3 new Sankey close-up effects!

"Drawing A Blank": A signed "vampire card" steals the body of a signed selection!

"Relocation": A borrowed, marked coin travels from the spectator's right hand to the spectator's left hand!

"Impossibler": An astounding, triple-climax, two-deck routine!

What You Get

  • A FULL-LENGTH DVD WITH EVERYTHING YOU NEED TO KNOW TO PERFORM WITH THE MAGUS CAPSULE PLUS THREE BRAND NEW SANKEY EFFECTS!
  • A SPUN ALUMINUM, SATIN FINISH CAPSULE WITH BUILT-IN "CHOP CUP" FEATURE!

  • The ability to perform astonishing magic with balls, rocks, cherries, limes, flash paper, coins, playing cards and even hard boiled eggs!

Classic Sankey Magic Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on April 14th, 2004
I love Sankey's latest reinvention of an old classic cups and balls. I love everything Sankey and this one will not let you down. As lovers of the art of magic we need to be well rounded and be able to do different kinds of magic. I hesitated to do cups and balls because 1. Cups and Balls are pretty expensive and 2. Too much to carry. The Magus Capsule is the answer. Get this if you want to incorperate cups and ball routine into your arsenal.

Jay Sankey has come up with a really good idea. For anyone who enjoys performing the cups and balls, this is a great portable set that you can carry around with you all the time. As a bonus, these product also contains the built in chop cup to help eliminate some of the slight of hand that is normally used in the cups and balls. Although this is a good product, I still prefer the original cups and balls. I think they look nicer when performing, and I like the weight of the cups. Anyways, if you are looking for an inexpensive but yet high quality set of cups, get this. Plus you get some bonus stuff on the DVD too.

this is a great effect i would recommend it to anyone. the only problem i had is that my two halves dont connect very unless you hold it sideways they come apart. oh and the other problem was in the video it says you get blue knit balls. mine were a dirty white. overall a great effect :).

Brilliant! Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on December 11th, 2005
I just got my Capsule and it is brilliant! (Despite some reviewers saying they had to fiddle with the edges, my Capsule opens and closes easily.) I like it because it looks NOTHING like "Cups and Balls". Indeed, you don't even have to use the balls! Jay includes routines on the DVD that use all kinds of objects. The "Wild Fire" routine is particularly killer, in which you flame a signed piece of flash paper that then reappears intact within the Capsule, WITHIN THE SPECTATORS OWN HANDS! Even better, I found that I could fit one of the new Mini Sharpie markers right inside the capsule, along with the lighter and paper...making this a completely self-contained pocket trick!

You can't improve on perfect Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on November 30th, 2005
I think that the cups and balls are such a popular and well used magic trick because its perfect for what it is, Jay Sankey has tried to come up with a better design but its not that great (sorry Jay, you win some you lose some).

The magus capsule just isn't the cups and balls, its like drinking light beer, its just not the same. The DVD that accompanies the capsule however is extremely useful, Jay teaches moves that can be used anywhere, false transfers and the like, I trick people with these moves without the capsule.

If your a first timer with cups and balls oriented tricks than this might be a bit harder to master than some of the other tricks you may have purchased, it really is all slieght of hand and you need lots of practice before you perform this.
I wish I had of just bought the cups and balls, think about that.

Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on October 7th, 2005
Well, I thought I'd like this, but I guess it wasn't for me. If u wanna carry around the cups and balls, and if you're good at creating new things, go for it. But for now, it's going on my shelf.

cool!!!!!! Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on May 19th, 2005
THe maagus capsule enables you to get away with alot of sneaky stuff!
Jay explains everything in detail and also teaches you a little of the art of paper folding!!!

But because this is only one object instaed of three cups there is sometimes a lack of routines, so when you buy this please dont say THEY'RE ALL THE SAME (because i hate to say i told you so!)!!!

Well Jay Not The Greatest Report this review
Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on July 29th, 2004
Well Jay I have seen better from you. The concept is great but you really do not go into great detail with the routines. They're just a wam bam thank you ma'am. But as always the bonus stuff at the end made up for the short tricks. I do cups n Balls in restaurants, and there not that bulky. But I am trying to incorporate your Capsule into my routine. But OverAll Good Job.

I think it's great!! Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on July 14th, 2004
Jay's Magus Capsule is a great addition to any close-up worker. Don't listen to any of the negative reviews. It took me about 3 minutes to get the capsule to come apart just the way I want it. Just take a pair of needle nose pliers and crimp the 3 ridges just slightly, then rub them with some fine steel wool and do the same with the inside of the top capsule. I'm sure not everyone likes them the same way so you can adjust it as necessary. The DVD is excellent and well worth every penny.

I never really thought about the cups and balls before, they never really appealed to me, because of the amount of space they take up, and the room you need to perform. I love my cards and coins for that reason. But as this is about the only product from Sankey Magic I don't own, I thought I'd buy it and give it a go. Boy, did I underestimate the power of this effect! The audience loves it, and so do I! If you're a serious worker, you won't leave home without it. I don't! THIS IS FANTASTIC!!!
