Starting from the top.
Packaging - Great, came with a sheet of example tricks to do and was
The fit - The fit was snug. Considering it's not a full size TT, i was a bit
skeptical as to how well it would sit on the thumb, but it turned out to be ok, but not the best.
Economy of motion - Average. The lead comes glued in a holder that runs through both sides
of the TT. As your thumb moves to write the name / prediction etc, the gimmick moves the TT around,
reducing the quality of your writing.
The lead - Horrible. It just doesn't write... I mean
ideally you want to be using a business card for your prediction effects so your spectators remember
you by that trick. However the thicker stock of business cards makes the lead almost not work at all
(Wish i could upload a picture to show you what i mean)It BARELY works on normal paper that you get
from a printer or just lying around on your desk. Also , the lead comes BLUNT, not a POINT, which
makes the writing look dull.
I only bought this type of gimmick because it was the only
one I found on Penguin.
WOULD NOT recommend or use the device to anyone, sorry but it's

The swami writer is a very useful and versatile gimmick to create mentalism effects. I have found
this particular model to be easier to handle than others. It is still not easy to write with this
but I think it is more stable and it won't get lost in your pocket.
