Minimax by Edo

How can you preform Spike with Minimax if the device only works using magnets? From what i understand unless the nail is a magnet it will not work.

I would LOVE to buy this gimmick for that effect but i just want to know if i can do it "impromptu" or do i need to set up one of the cups with a magnet over it and that specific cup needs to go over the nail. I'd rather perform the effect where the spectator freely chooses the cup the spike goes under

Hi there! I can't explain how the SPIKE effect works (of course) but when you purchase the effect you'll see that the routine is explained so you CAN perform it. This version is different than the previously marketed SPIKE effect so both will work a little different.

Minimax is a magnet detector. It won't detect any other object such as nails or spikes if they are not magnetized.
