This must-have tool for mentalists just got WAY BETTER.

Cool effect but doesn't work as well as shown in video Report this review

I was so excited to get this trick. - I have been waiting for it for weeks. Now that I finally received it and have had a chance to practice it, I have to say that I am a little disappointed.

No matter how hard I have tried, I have yet to get the paper cliup to bend past 90 degrees. I have proably gone through 30 paper clips - carefully preparing each one and the result is always the same. The paper clip will bend 60 degrees, maybe 90 degrees if I'm lucky.

That said, it is still super cool to have the paper clip bend 90 degrees. However, if you think that it will look like it does in the promo video then you may be disappinted also.

I can get a full bend about half the time. Once you get a feel for the method, you'll be able to get a full bend. Eventually it will just click. Even after you think you've already got it down, it still gets better.

Bring in a colder weather area can play a factor as well. My go to method when the bend doesn't go as smooth is to use the alternative method involving "breath" or "touch" (those who know the secret know what I mean) but I'm not a fan of the lighter as much as far as crowd reaction goes. Presentation is key.
