A Classic Effect Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on September 10th, 2004
I have always wanted a set of these silks, but never got around to ordering them until I saw Penguin offering them at about half the price you will find them anywhere else online. And on top of that they throw in one heck of a nice instructional video. Don't let the demo fool you, the effect itself is about 10 times better. Jay does an excellent job teaching you the ins and outs of this effect. I think I may be the only reviewer so far to actually pay for this, but I don't regret investing in it, and I have another set coming free with my next order, always good to have a back up. This one packs small and packs a huge punch, you will leave your specs in utter amazement after your routine. This effect is perfectly suited for a close up performance and also visual enough for a parlor or platform show. I have three words for those on the fence 'Add to Cart'. (When they come back in stock of course.)
really good Report this review

I really didn't like this trick when I saw the demo video, but I bought some tricks the pther day for over $ 50 so I got this free. When I took a look at the demo video I was so suprised. I thought this was a one phase routine. Oh no, it has an amazing FOUR PHASES!!!! The first where you tie a knot and you can let the spectators see it, and it just comes apart. The second phase you tie a knot and then let the SPECTATOR TIE A KNOT, you put it in THEIR HANDS and it just melts a way!!!!! The next you tie a knot and Jay says it's the most visual part of the routine and it is. The knot just melts away. And the last part, you tie a knot and it splits in two when you hit it against the spectators hand, and EVERYTHING IS EXAMINABLE. The two knots that are on the handkercheives when they are handed out are real knots and take about 4 minuits to untie!!!!
This trick is really good, if you're having any doubts don't just buy it!!!!
I am no way near a beginner, but still this trick plays big. This trick can be performed by a beginner with some practice, but just buy this trick now!!!!
a great buy.. highly recommended Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on March 23rd, 2006
... it really is.. (even if this isn't your specialty or area)
Jay gives you good pointers about how to do the effect.
Plus on top of that he gives a thorough explanation of each one.. (you will learn 4 ways how to.. :D)
It's a good trick, highly recommended with rope tricks like Greg Wilson's Ring Leader DVD.. (but the moves aren't the same ,they have that same magical effect on the spectator.. but you know what I mean)
The Silks aren't anything special.. but they help you distinguish which one is which.. (Once you do this hundreds of times you can use any type of fabric.. for restaurant use that is.)
This trick is so versatile.. can be used for walkaround.. like in the demo.. for stage magic.. for restaurant..
For that price?.. I suggest you get one too..
The BEST EVER!!!! Report this review

Nice Trick! Report this review
Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on August 22nd, 2004
I Love the fact that this trick is very clever - not that it has some Gimmick, that might be easily found. They are, in fact real silks, and that only adds to the already beautiful effect. On the downside, however is difficulty in learning the actual trick to tying the knots.
I am basically a beginner, though I have experience with these types of tricks, but the final stage in the tying confuses me. (maybe a better instructional video would help... hint hint) Once I have the Tying down, this trick is sure to join my routine.
Anyways, great trick, It gets my definite recommendations as a trick you should buy, and master.

I received my silks a couple days ago and, along with the video instructions and discussion forum entries, have been doing very well with this trick. The silks and download are absolutely worth buying.

This trick is fantastic and Jay teaches it step bye step so you wont go wrong. You get some of the greatest reactions and its great for comedy acts. To be honest, I wasn't to sure about getting a home made instructional download but it paid of and is one of the most mind boggling tricks i have. People will go crazy for this one and will want you to show it again and again, So satisfy there thirst and add to cart now....
