The Magician approaches an unknowing spectator and asks, "Do you have a quarter on you today, Ma'am?" The spectator proceeds to look for change in her pocket. The Magician then prompts, "Could you please sign the coin for me before I take it from you." (The coin does not need to be signed, but it adds to the effect's finale.) At this point, the Magician takes the coin, holding it in view of the spectator, and says, "I'm going to try something here ... You know what? You may be able to do the same as I do. Do you have another quarter?" The spectator reaches into her pocket and retrieves another coin. The Magician, holds the signed, borrowed coin at the fingertips, and begins to rub the coin, saying, "Rub your coin like me. Can you see mine starting to bend?" The Magician finishes showing the bent coin, and immediately gives the coin to the spectator as a souvenir. The coin can now be fully examined.

Just a warning Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on July 14th, 2011
So I have a few issues - but don't worry too much.

Firstly, I live in France and only 1 of the coins will work with this gimmick...so not worth buying if you're using Euros. Not sure about UK coins but I think they will encounter a similar problem.

Secondly, LONG sleeves are a much - I don't perform this way.

That said - it does work, easy to use, just a little practice...just be warned the set up is a little specific to location. I like to do impromptu bar tricks, this is a little difficult with this gimmick.

Great effect Report this review
Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on April 9th, 2010
You can have a lot of fun destroying other peoples money with this trick. You get everything you need to perform the effect well. The apperatice is easy to handle and vanishes after the coin bend what a great idea this was. It will leave them with a gift from your performance that will keep them guessing. This is well made and worth the money. If you like the shock factor this is a great trick.

Wonderful Effect Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on April 2nd, 2010
The total idea of taking a spectator's signed coin and bending it with seemingly no pressure whatsoever is brilliant in of its self. The reason I only give it 4 stars is because of the angles and the fact that the gimmick is sort of hard to conceal when not wearing an entertainment costume (such as a suit and coat). Don't get me wrong, it can be performed without wearing such attire but has a strong potential to get noticed.

Gets the job done. Report this review
Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on April 2nd, 2010
I like the simplicity of this gimmick. The only thing is that it requires significant talent at misdirection to do it the short sleeve version, but it is an adaptable gimmick that you can play with, and I appreciate that about the gimmick.

Fantastic Device...very practical Report this review
Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on April 2nd, 2010
Superman...you will feel like superman using this gimmick. With a moderate amount of practise you will have the ability to bend any coin, anytime, anywhere(if you bring the gimmick with you). The coin can be signed, which is great for all the skeptics out there.

If you've read paralies by Joshua Quinn, you will love combining the effect bendito with Superman.

However, if you haven't read paralies don't fret...Superman alone is enough for an incredibly convincing demonstration of metal bending.

Not lasting....too bad Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on November 29th, 2011
I am a professional magician who works 4 to 7 shows a week. This gimmick lasted effectively for 1 month. Thats it! It wore away and doesn't bend very well any more. Not worth the if it only last for maybe 40 bends or so.

its not good enough Report this review
Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on November 25th, 2012
so bassicly i bought this from my magic store about a week or two ago and heres how i feel about it: how easy is it to bend coins: its easy to bend american and canadien pennie, but when it comes to quarters it will take more practice and if your a teenager it wont be too easy to bend quarters.handlings of the gimick: handling the gimick looks unatural which is another big problem, the gimick is a bit longer than your finger but thinner.im just gonna say that handling looks bad!! how clean is it? well you can ditch the gimmick in your pockets. or you can have it pulled up your sleeve with a device which IMO is alot cleaner but less practicle.

summary:the gimick will last almost a year if you treat it well,cand for the angles you just have to make sure noeone is behind you. please dont buy it, youll end up regreting.instead of buying get another coin bend or get a scotch and soda.

Just Plain Super Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on April 2nd, 2010
This is a great coin bender. It can be done both short and long sleeved. It looks a lot like "the boa" if you need a demo video. You end totally clean. I've personally always been very happy with it and I use it my walk around act.

Pros
You end clean
Short or long sleeved
Very visual
Killer souvenir

Cons
You need to be strong
It is designed to work with American coins(it will work with some foreign coins)
It is designed to work with white people(it will work with black people, it is just harder.)

I think this trick is great it always gets a "HOLY SH**" reaction. Everybody at my school thinks that i am obscenely strong and teachers have even asked my if i can rip telephone books!

SUPERMAN!! Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on April 2nd, 2010
What it is: Someone pulls out a quarter and you ask them to mark it. You take the coin and visually bend it (almost in half!). They keep the coin with the mark still on it.

What you get: The cool gimmicks made by master craftsman Roy Kueppers, and directions for the routine (with pictures).

The gimmicks will last a lifetime.

The routines: There are two routines. One to end dirty, and one to end clean. To end dirty, you just need the gimmicks in your pocket and your ready. To end clean, it's a pain in the butt to set-up but almost well worth it.

Overall: An excellent piece of magic. Go crazy, get it.

Rubbish gimmick. Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on November 18th, 2011
