This is a utility item with a lot of great possibilities. The only shortcoming, in my mind, is that
the fabrication of the gimmick is left up to us. It's a simple matter to do, but for the money, it
should have been done by the seller.
That being said, it's a great gimmick that can help
you do a lot of near miracles, so long as you know you have an arts and crafts project ahead of you
when you buy it (an easy one, but still). Go beyond the usual effects that are possible with this,
and you'll have a winner!

This is the best clip on the market. It can't fail. No more rubber bands!
What you get is
pretty inexpensive, so you are not paying for prop, but paying for the idea. It is a little steep
for what they put together, but the improvement is definitely worth it to me.
missing a piece, but Penguin mailed out a replacement right away, no questions asked.

This is really a 4+ stars review. I agree with the other reviewers about the idea, and also that
you're definitely paying a good chunk for the idea, vs. the gimmick (and that's ok). Great video,
not only covers all the bases but highest quality and excellent advice for potential problems etc.
On the downside: the DIY construction of the gimmick, considering the price, arguably should
have been done for you. It's a little tricky and not that easy to get neat and clean for visual
inspection. Speaking of the latter, you can't hand out the clip or let spectators get a close look
at it, if they are observant. They may not figure out what's going on but they'll probably see that
there's something different about the clip. For the same reason you can't get out of the trick
cleanly. Chris has good ideas for ditching the clip, but you'll have to choose your audience wisely.
Like another reviewer I also had a problem with missing parts, and Penguin came through quickly
with replacements. The perfect solution would be a custom-made clip that could even be examined, but
maybe that would be too expensive.

Chis has done it again with this product. His idea is great and so durable compared to items I have
used in the past.
He did his thinking outside the box on this one.
My plan was to use it
with his one dollar bill mystery and it will work great with that. I don't know why he doesn't plug
that item with it but he should.
Great job Chris.

If your looking for a clip this is the one. It takes minimal time to get it working the way you
want. Totally different method that can't break or fail
I have now performed this effect, on stage, as a mentalism effect and a bill switch. Both have
played big and the audience was floored!! It's simple, quick, resets instantly, and durable!!
Amazing job Chris!! Don't wait any longer...get this now!!!
With this gimmick, you are only limited by your imagination. It is very slick and deceptive. Chris
Funk does a great job of explaining everything in understandable detail. He also includes a move I
had never heard of, the move takes some serious practice, but it is well worth your time. I have
incorporated Nesting Wallets, Torn and Restored and Executive Clip into about a five minute routine.
i have used it once and it got great reactions. Get Executive Clip, play with it, get used to it and
be prepared to amaze with it.
What a wonderful trick. I use it in every show.. kids and adults.
Chris Funk is a VERY talented man with a keen ability to create effects that leave audiences
gasping. The EXECUTIVE CLIP is perfection in every respect. All previous bulldog clip effects are
pale in comparison. This amazing device works every time and is essential to the serious performer.
It's as good as it gets!
This style of the Ostin clip is the best version on the market.
