String Theory by Vince Mendoza is a refreshingly new take on the Gypsy Thread concept that now allows the best moments to happen right in the spectator's hands.

When you take out a piece of string, your spectator cuts it into multiple pieces. They are in control. Pick up the pieces and place them in their hand. As you simply grab two of the ends and pull, the string visible heals itself in their hand. The pieces instantly mend IN THIER PALM.

This is what intimate magic is all about.

Over the course of 1.5 hour packed DVD, Vince Mendoza and Eric Jones will guide you through detailed performance explanations, simple setup, ins and outs, audience management, tips, tricks, troubleshooting & more.

  • Magic happens in your spectator's hands.
  • Great for strolling, close up or parlor.
  • Spectator keeps amazing souvenir.
  • Simple setup & pre-loading makes strolling & performing easy.
  • Special string included to last many performances.
  • Added bonus material, handlings and ideas from Eric Jones
The healing of an object in a spectator's hands is one of the most powerful magic moments that you can share.

String Theory adds a new dimension to this striking moment that they will remember forever.

The trick is way over priced for what you get. I would suggest saving your money on this one.

I was really excited to buy this routine, especially after watching the demonstration. I was even more excited when I saw the ingenious way the gimmick is made out of the twine that you receive with the DVD. (You do NOT receive a gimmick, you receive material to make the gimmick yourself). However, my excitement fizzled out after watching the REST of the DVD.
It was then that I was made aware of all the restrictions under which this has to be performed. You have to use some pretty bold sleight of hand, and definitely have to watch your angles. You have to PICK someone to perform this with who is wearing just the right type of clothing (that is right CLOTHING), then you have to have them sit in a very specific way in order for you to perfect the magic restoration of the cut twine, and did I say be very careful of your angles?! It is also recommended that this routine be done while seated, and you also have to touch the spectator two or three times to do this. Many folks may not like that aspect of the routine.
After watching the entire DVD and seeing how the routine is actually done, I went back and watched the performance again at the start of the DVD. It was then that I was able to realize that all the sticky, sneaky parts of the routine were actually EDITED OUT, or not even filmed. I think they even had the main move that makes this trick so effective completed before they even started the cameras!! I really felt deceived.
Why did I give this a three star rating ? Well, it is expensive for what you get, and the performance takes a lot of guts to do and pull off. The DVD was well done, but too long, and wordy. I now know that I will never do this routine myself after watching the entire DVD. I suspect that most folks watching it will end up feeling this way.
I really wish they had included a LIVE performance of this routine: then at least I could believe that it really can be done as described.

I think the reviews are way to harsh on this. I did not buy this DVD...but I did just see him lecture on this in the Penguin Lecture format.

This....Bold....sure...but if you put the effort into mastering the last move--move---before the restore...totally doable. The way the string looks like it is going back together is remarkable. I think it Is worth the time and effort to learn it, practice it and get it down! It brings a beautiful bang.

I am working on adding this to my show. I already do a string restore but this is a new way of doing that most audiences haven't really seen.

You should get his lecture. Very Cool guy and does a great job of teaching stuff. He seems really down to earth. He talks about his mistakes and things people have called him out on with such honesty and humor...I dig it. Seems like a cool guy.

You should try this trick out. You really should. I know I am.
