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

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.

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....

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.

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.

Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on March 20th, 2004
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.

Jay's cash cow Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on March 10th, 2004
Overpriced and nothing new. I don't know what I was expecting but this isn't it. No new or special moves here. Routines are short and very contrived. Save your money. This isn't the one.

An original and amusing new version of the classical cups and balls.
Definitely amazed and at the same amusing time for the people!
Good invoice of the capsule.
Only defect: the material bonus is not very good.
In every case buy you her!!
Thanks Jay.

Great Effect but Lacking Quality Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on April 20th, 2004
I was really excited to receive this new item from Jay...his thought process and approach to the "classics" is usually very interesting.
I am impressed with the DVD and the routines...they are very good.
The problem is with the Magus Capsule itself. The DVD shows Jay easily pulling the capsule apart and putting it back together with ease in the routines. The capsule I received fit very tight and differed depending on how you put it together. the magnet is way too strong for the effect to work at all! After about an hour of "custom" fitting with steel wool my capsule now works great. Several squares of duct tape help with the chop cup issues.
Bottom line is that when I spend for an effect and then have to spend an afternoon correcting it...I take issue with this! Obviously I am not the only one who is having these problems.
Penguin and Jay need to correct this or reduce the price of this item to compensate for the total lack of quality control. A few items like this and your reputation can diminish quickly!
I will definitely use this but not the chop portion unless I can tinker with it some more.
Just thought you should know what you're buying...and yes you should buy this for the originality and the clever routines...just know it's not initially as good as shown.
