Scott Alexander and Puck have teamed up to create what is best described as the most direct, safest and easily reset version of the classic needles from the mouth presentation ever devised. Scott is best known for creating the safest renditions of the Bullet Catch, Russian Roulette and Razorblade routines on the market, and this offering is no exception. The routine is flexible enough that you can even customize the number of needles used to suit your personal preference.

Road tested by both Scott and Puck, over countless performances for all types of audiences on land and sea, this routine packs small and plays huge! The Needles is so deviously simple to execute, that you can devote most of your focus where it should be, on presentation.

Those who have gotten a peek behind the curtain have been amazed at the super quick reset time, and the tremendous level of safety this method offers. And if all this weren't enough, the most incredible part is, that you start clean... and end clean!

The Needles package comes complete with the detailed training DVD, featuring live performance footage, needles, thread, wine glass, pincushion and the devious gaffs that make this routine a guilty pleasure to perform.

Yes it is very safe, but not worth $300 Report this review

I know this is one of the greatest illusions out there; however, I didn't feel I got my money's worth. First the production value is very low, yes you can understand and follow what he says, but still I feel for the price it should be better. Also, the staff that comes with it is cheap. But for me the WORST part was that HE PERFORMS THE EFFECT DIFFERENTLY AND USES A DIFFERENT, BETTER, SMALLER CUP. YOU WON'T BE PERFORMING THIS EFFECT EXACTLY THE SAME AS THEY SHOW. AND, IN MY OPINION IF I'M PAYING $300 I WANT A TOP QUALITY PRODUCT. You are paying for the secret and the safety element THAT IS IT everything else is just bad.

Great effect, but too expensive. Report this review

The routine is great. The safety is as promised. The effect really looks like what you see.

My biggest problem with this is the glass you get with the kit. For the price they could at least try to make a high quality glass. This is plastic and is crudely painted. It looks nothing like the glass he uses in the video, and I wish they had placed the exact same one in the kit.

Don't get me wrong, the one provided will be sufficient, and passable during a performance. (not inspectable) However for 300$ you think they would provide a high quality glass.

This effect will be in your show, as it is just as easy to do as they claim. So, if you like how it looks, you will enjoy performing it.

Part good, part bad Report this review
Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on March 12th, 2012
There are some very good thing and some bad things so I must give this a mixed review.

For ease of use and safety I give it 5 out of 5. For prop construction I give it a 1 out of 5. For routining I give it a 3 out of 5.

Prop construction-After the very first time practicing with the secret gimmick, the glue came off and it fell apart. For a 0 effect to literally fall apart in your hands after 1 practice use is inexcusable. The glass appears to be a modified plastic disposable party shop type glass. The DVD although has very low production value is extremely clear how to execute the effect and does the job.

Routine- The routine supplied has virtually no jokes,edge or humor but is very pleasantly, smoothly presented as you would for a family show, problem is the needles is NOT a family trick, This effect should not be done for children obviously. I think Steve Spills wonderful routine is more comedy club orientated and I really feel this is where this effect belongs (adult entertainment)
Credit where credit is due however, this is a GREAT method for fast set up and preventing tangles in the thread so if you have already tried the needles and you had a technical problem presenting it, this may be for you but don't expect the props to last.

Brilliant and perfectly priced Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on January 17th, 2013
"It's priced too high" you say? Nah I say!

This illusion is well thought out, probably the safest method and it easy to perform. It is a spectacular illusion that really allows you, as the performer, to create the moments of magic in your style.

The price seems high. But do you want everyone performing it? And we should give credit and "the cash" to those who created this illusion, Scott and Puck.
It comes with a good DVD by Scott showing the illusion performed and an excellent step by step instruction set.

The only thing it should have is a warning not to perform this for kids. Kids will try to mimic you. Not good.

If, and I stress if, you are an amateur, semi-pro and up, then this illusion is for you. And the way it is sold, it means that not everyone in your magic club will be performing it next week.
A really Great Illusion.
