Watch the video and you'll see this is a stunning effect, especially since the spectator does the
finale. And, it's actually quite easy to do; takes minimal practice. The accompanying instructional
cd is excellent, clearly illustrating every step of the trick. Highly recommended.

First off, I also wrote a review for the "Chain Thru Bolt" but mistakenly posted here. I am asking
that they remove it. I reposted it where it belongs.
Regarding this effect, which I also
own.... I'd say its VERY good little pocket effect.
Someone stand they had seen better tricks
with Bolts... Well, I guess thats true. However, one must have had an idea of what the effect was
before purchasing, no
I really like this. However unless you are willing to do a minor
switch (misdirection is built in) You could be discovered. A simple BOBO type switch is fine. Keep
in mind that there are several parts to be examined or briefly looked at. While thats being done,
one could switch in nearly ANYTHING.... I love this little effect because the audience can look at
it as long as they want and as long as the switch is made, there's nothing to to be seen. DO NOT
let this small detail stop you from trying this. For the money, it's a winner in my opinion.
CONS: Just be willing to work your handling out properly as a switch is involved if one is
allowing specs to look at the props. For this effect, I believe offering the props to be looked
over is indeed a necessity.
If you get this I hope yo enjoy it as much as I do.
Every now & then one comes across a nice little pocket trick! Are there better effects with BOLTS
as was stated? Yes, I suppose so but one must of had an idea of the effect they were purchasing
before hand, no?
Regarding this effect... I'd say it's nearly a perfect pocket trick.
To my way of thinking the gimmick is pretty much undetectable. At least I've never had anyone
discover the secret. If they were to ever do it, I'd say they would have had to handle the gimmick
for way to long. Thats where audience management comes into play. Anyway, I don't think you would
ever need to worry about being discovered. It's very clever! The gimmick is something a lay person
would likely never even think possible.
The danger with these type of effects is that they
can easily turn into nothing more than a puzzle... SO pay attention to some sort of routining before
showing to someone. If presented correctly, i think this is indeed very strong & easy to do! For
the money, in my opinion, one can't go wrong with this one. EVEN if yo simply wanna present as a
puzzle, it's very strong.
Fair effect, but I've seen better effects with bolts.
