DO NOT BUY THIS CRAP!
I have purchased thousands of dollars of magic from Penguin Magic since
December 28, 2010. I am told by PM that I am in their top 500 customers.
This download is
a perfect example of everything that magic instruction should NOT be. Like most trailers these days
you do not get to see a full performance of the effect. After you have purchased the "product" you
still do not get to see a full performance (neither LIVE or STUDIO) of the effect.
presenter displays fully exposed views of the moves required to make the effect work but seems
unable to do the moves without helping with the other hand (which of course you would not do in
The gimmick required is easily made with common household items but once it
is in place seems almost impossible to handle to achieve the effect.
The video filming and
editing is of the poorest quality and is the opposite of what a "professional" magic product should
Penguin Magic needs to stop promoting such amateurish schlock.
At the end of
the video the presenter says that after you practice "a lot" you will be able to amaze your
audience. If the presenter cannot demonstrate a full performance of the effect how motivated do
you think I am to practice "a lot".
$$$$$$'s spent and an hour and a half of my life
spent that I will never get back on an effect that I will never practice or perform.
ADVICE: DO NOT BUY THIS CRAP!
