It says...
Any glass, any coin

Then it goes on to say...
With almost any glass - Almost any coin


Save your 4 dollars, this is a complete waste, and as usual a misleading description. This is NOT the first time Ive been mislead, but I promise it will never happen again because as of now I'm taking my business elsewhere.

This trick is very practical and easy to perform! It can be used with ALMOST any coins... and it means, that, for example JUMBO-COIN is not good for this effect! ;) But if you have average-sized coin - it's ok to perform! It seems you are angry for some of your last downloads, but not for this trick...

@secretinsane:

Did you seriously include "jumbo coins" as part of the apparatus to use for this trick??!!....the fact that you did (unfortunately) shows how your comment contributed very, VERY poorly to this product and discussion....

Additionally, define "average-sized coin", which is also a poor choice of vocabulary...

Really? You guys act like this was a $400 effect. Quit your whining and practice. Tricks don't do themselves.

I don't care if this is a fantastic trick for a super-low price. If this review is true, I wouldn't purchase it, and I'd demand a refund.

(This is someone else's review)
"I normally write no reviews - but here I have to make an exception. The reason is, both in the description and the videos there is stated " ... and there is nothing more in the hands - except the empty glass and the coin! ... EVERYTHING IS 100% CLEAN... ". This is an open lie, and I'd rather believed the first reviewer who said that the method is excatly would you would expect. I have no problem with descriptions that hide the true method as long as there are no plain false statements - in that case I feel betrayed."

Such information regarding being clean at the point in the video where that text is displayed, should not be merely true from the audience's perspective in an advertisement - but I watched the video, and it's not even the audience's perspective! He never shows his hands empty of anything extra. If the reviewer above is telling the truth, and since I almost certainly know exactly how this was done, I expect he is, then I would take my business elsewhere.

Since I didn't purchase this, I'll cut penguinmagic some slack and assume the reviewer is wrong - but take now, I have purchased from Penguinmagic periodically for years, but they only have to lie in an advertisement once for me to stop buying from them forever!

And, by "lie", I mean to lie in a way that misleads a purchaser in a wrong way, particularly about being clean at the beginning and end. I don't mind being sold a floating ball that obviously won't really be floating, but anything that I might be expected to believe as a purchaser had better be absolutely true!

My last post should have "take note", not "take now".
