Very well packaged. Looks old school.
The instructional download is clear and
comprehensive. Menny demonstrates and explains things concisely but just the right amount of info.
There is however no full public performance of the gimmick in play.
I would have liked to
have seen a full performance as he did with his coin bending gimmick Ox Bender.
There is an
index at the start of the video so that you can move to whatever part of the video that you are
interested in. The quality of the video is excellent.
The explanations on the video cover bends
for spoons, nails, keys and forks. Heaps of different types of bends.
The gimmick is well
designed, nothing fancy, and innocent looking. It appears to be indestructible. It is sturdy and
should last a life time.
Everything that is claimed in the advertising seems to be accurate.
I bought it for the corkscrew bend(neck twist). I have always been fascinated with this type of
bend. With a bit of practice, and a bit of strength , the bend is very achievable. I had it down
Menny doesn't discuss routining that well. Just distract them and do the bend.
Give them another spoon to look at to see if it is straight.....
So a bit of time has to be
devoted to the routining of this gimmick. I will use my coin bending routine for this but with a
spoon or fork.
Or you can do it directly in front of them and show how strong you are ( he says
this on the video:-))
One thing that wasn't mentioned in his video, is that you can do a crazy
balancing stunt with the gimmick. This will be obvious to anyone who buys it.

For this price he could included a pack of spoons & forks but no he didn't.
This is my
honest review : the gimmick is well made and has a well look .
Works great but you need to do
the move by yourself not like the oxbender that does it instantly.
It disguised as a part from
an item that all magicians and mentalist own .
You could use it for forks, spoons, large and
largest nails, and keys , but not coins.
You could do any impossible bends on the forks and
spoon , but some the bends are so big that you need to disguise your movements by misleading. Some
of the movements could be done with the oxbender.
I give it only 3 stars for the price and
because it's not automatic devices, it just a disguised tool that it does only a quarter of the job
. So I'm half satisfied.

Hides in plain site.
Does a great job of assisting with
Impossible bends. I do liquid metal by Morgan Strebler all the time and this will only
enhance what I do.
Love it 100%

one of the review on deformer is titled "domt look at the five stars".i wrote that review befor
getting the gimmick, whuch was a big mistake. i am very sory to all of the people that read it.
bu now i got the gimmick, and i realy do love it!
it realy does hide right under the
spectators noses, and you can get truly impossible bends with it.
the only down side to it is
that you cant build a whole fork bending routine around it. you will only have enough time to get in
only one bend, and if you are lucky maybe two. but you shouldnt let this scare you. the bends you
can get on a fork are truly impossible!
i dont think i will be bending spoons with this at
all. the bend itself is vey unnatrual, and if you are surounded you screwd. not because of angles,
but rather the fact that you wont be able to musdirect everybody.
i think i will be using
it for keys and nails the most because as i said you cant get many bends with it, but the ones you
get are realy good. because of the size of nails and keys the bens=ds on them look both very big and
realy impossible at the same time.
honestly i think the best thing about it is that it is
impromtu. as long as you have a s*****i on you, which as magicians we all cary, you can put very
nice bends on very strong forks and spoons with no set up at all.
keys and nails are a bit
harder because of the size, but you can find some very useable ones.
Just got mine. Although I had fun playing with this I'm not sure I see how its worth the $99. You
are not going to get away with the stem twist he recommends at the start unless you're a body
builder or your spectators are drunk. Liquid Metal is a way better way to do that. The two fork
misdirection is good but it requires sticking one in your pocket after its been examined in many
situations which seems like a really bad idea and anyway, with that misdirection you could do a tine
bend by hand without muddying things by introducing the gimmick a la liquid metal. Yes, there are
more things you can do with this than Liquid Metal, but I'm not sure they make much difference to

I think that for what you get, this cost too little. This is to silverware what coinvexed is to
coins but it cost 1/3rd less than coinvexed and it is a much better utility device. I would have
paid as much as $200-$300 for this because it is that good. If you like coinvexed but would prefer
to bend silverware than coins, then this is for you. You already know what to do... buy it!

I thought the trick would be easier to do, faster, and not have to take a marker that distracts the
viewer. There should be no reason to sign the spoon so I can bend it. People are usually very
suspicious and do not fall so fast. I'm sorry to buy the device.If I knew that this was the trick, I
wouldn't buy it
