Very good Report this review

I don't understand why someone would complain about the price of this item. If you wanted to buy a decent boon writer, it would cost at least this much. You can't compare this to cheaply-made gimmicks in this category.
Anyway, if you do mentalism work, you really need to have this sort of a gimmick. You could opt for a nail writer or a boon writer, but the reason I prefer this is because nowadays, a sharpie seems much more natural. Who still uses pencils? Plus, the writing from a sharpie is far easier to see.
Refilling it isn't a problem, since you can just use the insides of a regular sharpie. No need to repurchase a new one. Definitely one of my favorite gimmicks.

Hi. This is your official PenguinMagic reviewer, B_Magic.
I got a Super Sharpie a couple years back, and to be completely honest, it's for the most part sat on the shelf. First of all, it's a little pricey for what you get. The idea behind it is genius, but the practicality and functionality of the thing is just not so good. It's harder to use than a swami gimmick, it's MUCH noisier (which is not good for this effect), and it needs refilling. It just isn't as practical to carry around.
Again, the idea is genius and I love the "hidden in plain sight" feature with this (much like Quantum Bender). However, practically, it just wasn't the thing for me. A swami is better.
Way too expensive Report this review

This is a great little gimmick, as most magicians carry around a Sharpie anyway. However, it is way too expensive for what you get. This should be less than half the price that it is. It will require some practice, and you will really blow people away. The concept is great. I knocked off 2 stars solely because of how expensive it is.

The super sharpie is a great gimmick that you should carry around all the time. Magicians usually carry multiple sharpies anyways so it's easy to get away with. The only downside to this product is that you are limited to certain canvases. A nice plastic coated business card will work great, but a paper one won't. The reactions you get will depend on how you use it though.
Pretty Good. Report this review

This is a well made gimmick and it works very well. It will require practise until you've got the handling down to a very smooth and natural motion.
It's a bit pricey but if you're looking for this sort of gimmick then it'll be worthit.
Great idea, but not so practical Report this review

I bought this a while back and I LOVE the idea! The problem is that the actual writing implement is too fine and because of the design it causes a lot of noise! This is a big problem for this type of effect. All in all, a great idea, but could use some refinement.
Great gimmick, but WILL take practice! Report this review

YES, this WILL take practice to be able to use it confidently and convincingly. But the time you put into it WILL BE worth it. For what you can do with it, this is CHEAP! Someone said it makes noise when you use it. That tells me that this person has not put in the time with it to develop his technique and to experiment with the best writing surfaces. This is not a toy for kids. This is not a "self working magic trick" to impress your friends. For anyone who is serious about this art though, this is an amazing tool to add to your arsenal! I consider myself a mentalist, not a magician. This is one of the tools I ALWAYS have on me. I am able to do a complete mind reading act, seemingly impromptu using nothing more than a couple markers, a small notepad in my shirt pocket, and a business card wallet in my back pocket(with some business cards and billet slips inside obviously). You can too. Just get yourself a Super Sharpie, a Telethought Wallet, Psypher (with Psypher Sharpie), and Allan Zingg's complete course on billet work. Forget the deck of cards. This is all you need to create mindblowing mentalism demonstrations anytime anywhere with a few normal looking items that are totally normal to carry around with you.

Ok, it's still just a trick. But this sharpie makes great use of the old swami gimmick. Everything is built into the sharpie. You start clean and you end clean.
This is one of my most requested tricks. Girls love it when I guess their birthday, and you can with this very cleverly made sharpie.
Write down their birthday, hand them the sharpie after your prediction is made, ask them when it was, they look at your prediction and you're right. Can you ask for anything stronger?

don't leave home without it Report this review

Of all the magic and tricks i have, this is my far one of my favorites, second only to the three shell game. whenever i go out i always carry my thumb tip, business cards and my super sharpie. no reset, you can write anything (with practice, start with numbers), and powerful. this is the perfect ice breaker and deal maker. i asked a girl if i could guess her phone number would she let me buy her lunch. lunch date next day. also i use it to pass out my business card.
all in all this is one of my best investments.
can't recommend this enough, add to cart today.
Good but requires practice Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on August 1st, 2012
The Super Sharpie is ingenious but will require some work. transferring the gi****k will take some practice to not get ink all over your fingers, position it well and actually use.
The above being said there is nothing more amazing to a spectator than being able to read their mind without having them write anything down or other subterfuge. If you truly could read someone's mind you would be able to make a prediction using only their thoughts. The Super Sharpie allows you to do this but.....
Practice practice practice.
