Best I've used Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on February 23rd, 2008
I've searched high and low for a thumb tip that I feel comfortable using and after many types I believe this one is the best (for me at least). Everyone has their prefences and I also own good tips from Magicmakers and Tenyo but when it comes to vanishing a 12" silk they don't sit very well on my thumb whereas these do - due to the rubbery texture.
The colour is darker and doesn't suit my natural skin colour but in actual fact this shouldn't be a problem. I also own a brilliant DVD from Duane Laflin (I'd recommend to anyone) and he teaches that in any vanish there is no need for the audience to even see the thumb tip. Therefore, slight differences in colour don't matter.
I hope this review may help others decide. I know these tips are more expensive but in my opinion they are worth that extra price.

Poor Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on November 12th, 2013
A shoddy, wonkey rip-off of Hottrix 'thumbs up'. The nail colouring was misprinted and the shape of the whole was poor/wonkey. Very thin material, which I found good for vanishing a small silk as it expanded/gripped well.

I am glad I got this as a free gift from penguin. I would be mad if I paid for it.
Stick to Vernet.

This Thumb Tip is excellent. It fits well and works wonderfully. The size and length are just right and you can load plenty into this if you need to. I only gave this item 4 stars because I personally prefer a hard vinyl tip and this one that was supplied with the "Darwin Encyclopedia of Thumb Tip Magic" was a rubber one. Nothing wrong with that but I find it tough to use for things like the 100 Dollar Bill Switch. Otherwise this is an excellent tip.

Pretty Good Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on March 29th, 2012
Compared to other Vinyl tips, it's good; with that said, it's harder to remove a silk or dollar bill or things like that compared to a hard tip. The color is a bit off from my skin, though I know that shouldn't matter (and according to other reviews, I don't know that it's matched anybody's skin color well). Color depends on lighting too. It's great for a quarter vanish because it will stretch to fit the quarter, but other than that I prefer a hard tip. If you like Vinyl tips, this is a 5; if you prefer hard tips (like me), it's a 3. Next time, I would probably buy a regular vinyl because this one does not seem to be worth the $15.00. Penguin did provide great customer service. Thanks Penguin.

This is good for what it is, well made and does look natural, again is it better then a normal tip, yes the quility is, but it is up to you if you need a tip that looks more natural or not. Cool product though.

The only one I use Report this review

This is the only thumb tip I will use. It feels great and is definitely worth the extra money.

Very good. Report this review

When it comes to thumb tips you don't need anything special but if you want something which looks realistic to give your that bit more confidence when performing with a TT, then go for one of these!

better than others Report this review

Great Thumb Tip. This thumb tip looks real, but does that matter? Not really because the spectator is never suppose to see it. With that, this thumb tip feels great. I’ve tried other tips and found they are too hard or don’t fit. This tip seems to be made better than other tips I’ve purchased. I also find it easier to load and unload. My favorite routine is Silly Billy ‘s silk vanish.
