No different than a $1 Chinese Tip... Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on March 27th, 2016
Never wrote a bad review before, mostly because Penguin has always has such good quality products (I love this company to death)...but this being an exception.2 of 2 magicians found this helpful.
Save your money, and buy a couple Vernets for the same price. I promise you will thank me later. Why?
a) I have purchased nearly every single dang thumb tip and dvd/book related to thumb tip(s) on penguin. Anyone doubts me, I can release my purchase history.
b) I am less bias to thumb tips. Maybe mine didn't fit me, but it will fit another person. The Extreme Close up being the exception. It has no greater quality than a $1 chinese thumb tip online in color, quality, or otherwise. Search it up, you WILL find them (the chinese ones), and they're the SAME QUALITY as this tip.
c) nothing fancy about this thumb tip. no fancy packaging, nada...it looks as if no care's been put into it, I just saw it in my box hidden amongst the kick but Vernet tips. I compared a chinese $1 thumb tip, which by the way is very adaptable to multiple thumb sizes, and I'm sticking with the chinese version than this Extreme's attempt at a thumb tip.
Summary, yeah you can get the chinese tip, and it'll be about the same quality (you're welcome). BUT, and this is cuz penguin is awesome and here for ya, if you want the BEST tip, go get a Vernet, on penguin, and buy a couple, hard or soft styled for $2. They're CHEAP AND GREAT, and I promise...PROMISE you will be happier with penguins other thumb tip products over Extreme's "attempt" at a thumb tip.
Here's to a good day, and wishing you the best in your thumb tip journey,
Great for small fingers and darker skin Report this review

Color and size didn't work for my average sized thumb. Color shines and does not look so swell for my white skin. Not even " close" to a good choice for a close up worker. Perhaps as I have discovered it's just better to work on your technique using your money on the Tarbell-Thumbtip magic download taught by Dan Harlan as an instant video download. Two thumbs up on that instant download..1 of 1 magicians found this helpful.
This close up workers thumb was too small and really a waste of money. Go VERNET, those thumb tips rock as they are affordable, look much more realistic, match my white skin, and the soft /medium size Vernet is the close up workers thumb tip of choice here!

Extremely disappointing! I was very fascinated by the preview and close up of the Thumbtip, till I receive it.1 of 1 magicians found this helpful.
Firstly, the coloration is completely different from any natural brown.it's a very pale yellowish conpletely different and far off.I won't recommend it to anyone who's
looking for one as natural in tone or quality and price.
Best I've used Report this review

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.1 of 1 magicians found this helpful.
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.

Excellent quality and appearance. I ordered 3 more.

This is definitely the most realistic thumb tip, much better than Alan Wong's
IN YOUR FACE Thumb Tip Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on December 18th, 2014
This the first time I've been disappointed in a product from Penquin.
I ordered two Vernet TTs, and the IN YOUR FACED TT. The Vernet TTs
were excellent . They looked good, fit well, came nicely packaged, and held a decent load.
The IN YOUR FACE TT is terrible. It has a poor flesh color, is a very tight
fit, holds a very small load, and is cheaply packaged in a plastic wrap.
But what makes the comparison outrageous is the price. The IN YOUR FACE TT is Six times more expensive then One Vernet. I wish the manufactures of IN YOUR FACE used as much creativity in designing their TT as they did in advertising it.
Very realistic Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on October 10th, 2014
I rated this one a little low because I do think it's a little pricy for a thumbtip.
I was lucky enough to get mine as a promo from Penguin, and I'm glad since I don't think I would have bought it separately.
Don't get me wrong... this is one fantastically realistic thumbtip, (Although we all know the secret to a thumbtip is to keep it from being noticed in the first place.), and that could aid in avoiding detection.
All in all a very well made tip, and very professional. I'll leave it up to you as to whether the extra realism is worth the higher 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.
