PROFESSIONALS: This is one of those rare times you can involve EVERYONE at the table. They truly have a free choice, each coin truly is unique, and you truly do find each coin!

In addition to the main trick, you're going to get a TON of additional ideas from Rick Lax in the very-thorough instructional video.

I'm not gettin it folks! I see all these glowing reviews. Obviously from folks who have never seen this utility prop that has been around for years.

I think $20 is a bit steep for something you can make at home for 10 cents that's even more convincing as an innocent utility device.

You get one good idea from Rick and 2 utility devices. $4.95 would be more fair for this and only if it included 5 utility devices.

This is not a magician fooler, the method should be obvious to most magicians but will fly right past laymen.

That said it is a good use of the prop and a nice routine. The variations taught are good, especially the "totally impromptu" version with sugar packets, using the bag initially to carry your sandwich.

If you don't have one of these props (or you don't know how it is done) this is a cheap way to pick up a very natural looking prop that has a multitude of uses.

Well thought out and simple fo do Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on February 18th, 2018
Let me begin by explaining that I do about 10 minutes of my show completely blind. I do routines with a blindfold on my face and they have all been really powerful. This is one of those acts that can be done blind. It was designed to be as simple as possible and yet have an impact that will fry non-magicians. Eveything looks and sounds fair which is the best part I find. It can be done surrounded, blind, naked, and behind your back. You will always have 100% certainty of the selected coins. What is even better is that you can do it with as many people as you would like.

I use this type of [redacted] in my shows all the time. Rick Lax thank you for bringing this to us. I've already started using it and am getting wonderful results and standing ovations. Anyone that doesn't purchase this is missing out on a great opportunity.

Not the greatest thing ever, but worth buying Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on February 24th, 2018
I will carry Grab Bag with me when I am taking casual magic places. I wouldn't use this in a show personally, but for situations in bars and parties, I think this has some nice potential. This is a utility device, and I 100% knew what I was going to get as soon as I ordered it. However, I support Rick Lax's work and almost always purchase what he puts out. You usually can't go wrong with what this guy makes.

You receive two of the necessary props you are purchasing in the package. In my opinion, this is a little bit overpriced. It would be worth $20 if we got more ideas and performance footage of alternate handlings out of the download. But, he teaches the routine from the trailer and then teaches an application to playing cards that I don't think I'd ever use because sleight of hand simplifies what he is accomplishing in his card application he teaches. After this, he just briefly mentions a couple other ideas. I know that the goal here is to get people to be creative with this utility prop, but I just believe that for the price tag on this, we should have received either a better download or more of the props. Maybe the props cost more to make than I realize.

I am also concerned about refills. Due to the nature of the prop, I doubt it has crazy lifespan, but I wouldn't want to pay $20 for two more of these again now that I have the download. However, I guess I just started using this, so it isn't fair to just assume that this trick won't last. I will be able to report more on this later.

This product isn't groundbreaking and it isn't going to feel revolutionary to use, but it is a fun thing to play with and it is perfect for a closeup casual magic performance. It feels more like a bar bet than a magic trick if you do the routine in the trailer, but you can create your own ideas that are magical if that's what you want. This isn't a perfect product, hence not having 5 stars from me, but it is still pretty good. I would recommend it if you want something fairly inexpensive and easy to add right to your closeup magic that doesn't involve MORE cards.

Endless!!! So Adaptable Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on February 18th, 2018
The possibility are endless with this!!!!! Within the first 5 mins of watching the video I have come up with 3 plus different routines to adapt to this. Also this effect is great if your doing a corporate gig or a trade show. As you can use the whatever you write /draw on the pennies, cards , paper or whatever you want to. To go with what the company is selling or what’ the company is about. Also you can atapt this to any theme. And you combined it with the trick the gift. Once you watch this video you should understand where my thinking coming from and how this world work

Another Winner from Rick Lax Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on February 18th, 2018
I am amazed at the creativity, both in terms of method and in terms of presentation that Mr. Lax comes up with. Not only is this a great product that looks just like an everyday object, but the story sets up the trick and makes the conditions much stronger.
There are so many other things that can be done with this simple gimmick that I am sure you will have great ideas of your own before the package eve arrives.
This is a great piece that can be used anywhere from walk-around all the way to a one man show.
A steal at this price.

10 Stars! Best Rick Lax Yet! Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on February 16th, 2018
Rick Lax will blow you away with Grab Bag. Grab bag will grab your spectators minds and blow them away. Even knowing how the effect and gimmick work, Rick's ideas and many, many creative applications make this the one gimmick to buy this year. Just watching the video, it is easy to see that Rick is also very proud of Grab Bag. I for one plan to use it immediately in my keynote address. There are so many possibilities. Best of all, you don't need great skill or lots of practice to look like a pro. I love it!

Wow! Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on February 16th, 2018
This is quite possibly the cleanest, least conspicuous gimmick of its type ever. I am so thrilled that I have this now. It’s an instant addition to my closeup and parlor sets. I know you will love this. GRAB this, NOW! Not only is the routine from Rick a very thought out great presentation, but there is so much room for your own creative ideas. A+ material.
