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! ... NO BALLS INCLUDED

Run time: 75 minutes

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.

This is so freaking cool...the demo does not give this any justice...you have got to buy it....there are so many things you can do with this....Jay teaches the sleight of hand great...you can make up your own tricks with it....anyone who has anything bad to say about it is obviously just not very creative with it...and I'm sick of these people talking about how weird Jay is...he isn't wierd ...I think he is funny as hell.....trust me on this one...it's way worth it....it can fit in your pocket..and you can just pull it out and make something up! Good job Jay.

Magus Capsule Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on March 19th, 2004
I think it's a cool idea, I am enjoying messing with it and coming up with interesting presentations and effects. My only problem is with the chop gimmick. The magnet is so strong that the ball hits the table and bounces back up to the magnet. Even with the lightest tap onto the table I still have the same problem. The machining was a bit off as well. My cap doesn't fit so well.

Overall it's a great idea, I just wish it was made a little better.

WoW! Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on March 14th, 2004
This is an awesome new twist on the cups and balls. You can carry it around so easily, and perform it in the smallest of spaces. It easily has replaced my cups and balls. Also, this trick is so cool to bring to my restaurant work. I do it with Jay's paperclipped (he explains on the DVD what to do), and when they see their folded card come out of the capsule they are so freaked out. ESPECIALLY since the folded card doesnt even fit into the capsule! I give this my highest recommendations! click ADD TO CART!

P.S. I got my DVD signed.

Great way to revitalize the cups balls / chop cup routines! This capsule DOES indeed have a built in misdirection. Those who like sleight of hand at its purest will like this. It allows you to show off the cups and balls in a new and ingenious way. Everyone owns and has seen the typical red, blue, yellow cup/ball trick. But all will be surprised with this new twist. Definitely recommend this to all....

Great Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on August 30th, 2015
This is a nice variation on the old classic, and has a lot of fun applications. My capsule was well made, no quality issues for me. My only complaint was that it didn't come with balls, (and penguin seems to be always out of the inexpensive ones) but that was mentioned in the description before I purchased it so I don't feel right taking away stars for it.

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.

Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on December 2nd, 2008
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!
