Blackout (US Quarter, With DVD) by Brian Platt - DVD
In stock: usually ships within 24 hours!
BLACKOUT! is a new utility coin that allows you to perform ridiculously clean vanishes, changes, productions and transposition miracles... right under your spectator's nose! BLACKOUT! is machined to precise specifications by master craftsman Roy Kueppers. It then goes through a second and third stage of meticulous handcrafting and treatment by Mike Platt. The result of this laborious process is a unique gimmick that brilliantly overcomes the inherent problems of combining "BA" with the unforgiving conditions of close-up coin magic. After well over a year of excruciating trial and error, Brian & Mike Platt's BLACKOUT! is here! Perform in any black (or even partially black) shirt, pants or jacket. Comes complete with full length DVD, and everything you need to perform ridiculously clean, impossible looking coin magic.

I think there are a few things that should be said to someone considering a purchase of this gimmick... Firstly, it is VERY well made. You can tell a lot of work went into manufacturing it. With that said, it is somewhat delicate. That's not to put it down though.. I think in order to function in the way that it does, sacrifices had to be made. So when practicing throw a blanket on the floor to lessen the blow to the coin WHEN it falls...and it fell A LOT for me at first..I think I'm lucky I didn't permanently damage it on day 1. Also, it's not quite as "invisible" as I'd hoped... I can't imagine it being made better really, but you need to understand the limitations of using "B.A." up close and play with the best place to "do the dirt". Overall it's pretty effective under the right lighting conditions, and is ESPECIALLY useful if you don't perform in a sport coat/button down shirt/or vest... (otherwise I'd probably go with a topit of some sort).

I don't write reviews very often, but this is an exception. I am a 42 year old kid/family magician that also does a fair share of restaurant work. Black Out is everything it claims to be. It truly is the "thumb tip" for coin work. It's very easy to perform, so much so, that I did it "backwards or wrong side out" and only my daughter, who knows the secret, caught it when I did the routine at local Chick-Fil-A. Good magic is easy magic and this is truly good magic. I have to keep reminding myself of how effective it was when I didn't the secret, because when I found out I thought "no way"! I've never been caught and I don't like complex handling, I believe in concentrating on the audience and focusing on them and the "story". This allows me to do just that. You won't be disappointed!

A coin gimmick that can have many applications, in that it can be disappeared or appeared in plain sight and that will be not perceived as a prop or gimmick.
It is well made and well thought out.
