It's very cool but useful only to a certain point. Report this review

First off, just because this is only getting 3 stars doesn't mean I don't think this is extremely cool or hard hitting magic. In fact, it's an incredible effect. But for me, it all boils down to practicality.
If you are a good coin handler, basically everything you can do with the raven can also be done without the gimmick. Maybe not quite as perfectly cleanly, but pretty darn close. In my honest opinion, someone performing the raven vanish versus someone performing a fluid retention vanish...the effect is identical in the mind of a spectator. Maybe I'm just being a purist, but if you can do something ungimmicked I don't see a reason to gimmick it.
Here's the trade-offs in a nutshell. Using the Raven, you will be performing arguably the cleanest vanish in magic. However you will be forced to wear a gimmick when you perform. Unless you live in certain countries, you will not be able to use regular coins in your vanishes. You won't be able to borrow US currency and do this [editors note: without a switch]. Whether or not its worth it is up to you.
Well worth it! Report this review

-You will master it in a day or two
- Can be done in a short sleeved shirt
- Freaks people out
-Directions are hard to understand (but everything is explained very clearly in the forums)
- Harder to do for short sleeves
-Long and irritating set up (but when u get used to it you'll get faster at it)

If you're a fan of close up magic this is pretty much a must have. The effects you can do really hit home. I had one for 5 years before having to replace it.
The only reason I'm giving it a 4 star review is the shell nickel is comes with wasn't the same as the mini-nickel also included. The shell was a new nickel (with the new face) and the mini one was an old nickel.
just a great trick Report this review

so i must say i love this effect. i bought this years and years ago, one of the only tricks i own i didn't get from penguin, but i was at my local magic shop and the owner recommended this to me. i live in canada and for once it is an advantage for a trick, our coins are different up here and don't require special gimmicks to make it work. highly recommend it, especially to canadians, self working and hits hard. even if i needed to practice a little more with other countries coins i would gladly just because of the jaw droppin reactions you will get.

This is a fantastic gimmick and arguably one of the most well known in all of magic... for good reason.
Having the ability to do a "bare-handed" coin vanish on the SPECTATORS hand without EVER TOUCHING their hand is just... An amazing ability worth hundreds of dollars, if you were to put a value on it.
Regardless, this is a gimmick that does not only vanish, oh no. The ideas don't stop when you pick this up; you can vanish, change and manipulate objects at will and end COMPLETELY clean afterwards. If you don't own one of these, pick it up now.
one word AWESOME!!!!!! Report this review

Good but not for me Report this review

This is a great one but If you like me and just wear a short sleeve shirt all the time then this is not for you...If you wear a jacked or sleeves then this will make you very happy.
Just a few tips to make the raven even more awesome! Report this review

First off, the raven is the best trick I have bought from penguin, hands down. I thought I would give you guys a few performance tips. If you find the refuels for movemint you can do this with mints. Carry them in an empty case of mints and you will be able to make them disappear! If you are having trouble trying the l##p, the you can check out disturb reality show page for an in depth tutorial.
