I just got this today and love it! The principle isn't new, but the gimmick is. It's combination
of two gimmicks every magician owns, affixed together to make a new super gimmick! I remember seeing
a guy do a cigarette vanish on the old 90's TV show America's Funniest People, it won him the $3000
second prize (he used a much lower-tech version). I went out and bought me some bright neon pink
and orange Sharpies, they're much more visible, and this trick deserves the best. Bravo Alain
Vachon! More tricks like this one please!

I'm not sure why some reviewers gave negative comments. They mentioned it was hard to conceal, or
that their hands were too small.This is a great specific adaptation of another gimmick. Subtlety is
the key to this gimmick. You are NOT showing your hands and blatantly "showing all". Go back and put
in a little practice, and work on your angles specific to you and you may change your mind. My hands
are "average" and it works fine, after practice. I plan on using it as a lead in to Ambitious card
as more of a "throw away"or seemingly impromptu item. The included dvd is quite brief, however.
I received the package today. You can borrow pen and do tricks.
The gimmick is ok, but I make
my own gimmick.
This product is ok if you have really big hands. The effect is cool but you can see the pen at
pretty much any angle except the side view from the front. The gimmick is cheap and not worth the
amount you pay. The dvd is bad and badly edited. Honestly you can make the gimmick with a piece
from a pen cap.
