First, the features of WOW 3 - then the amazing effect:

By fully using advanced printing technology from Japan, WOW 3 has improved hi-resolution even beyond the previous WOW series.

By using a polycarbonate, its surface is more like glass.

In pursuit of a stylish design, the bezel on the both sides of WOW 3 is now ultimately thinner than ever before.

Effect:

Magician asks the spectator to sign their chosen card and to return it to the deck...

Place a different card into WOW 3.

Magician makes a magical gesture towards the case...

The different card VISUALLY changes into the spectator's signed card! Everything happens right in front of the spectator's eyes...

This unbelievable effect seems exactly like you're watching computer graphics, except it's real!

The signed card can be given away as a souvenir.

WOW has been loved by magicians all over the world. But WOW 3 has evolved much further!

It's time to get WOW 3 to experience the evolution!

I am going to start by saying that I did not buy the previous gimmicks and I do not understand why... However, this is LITERALLY one of the best gimmicks you can bring along with you. It is a miracle that fits right in your pocket. You will conscientiously perform it over and over for yourself and never get tired of it.

PROS:
- Packs small but plays big
- Extremely easy to do
- If it is in your pocket, it is impromptu
- As magical as it gets
- Extremely visual
- There are a ton more pros, but you get the point

CONS:
- THERE AREN'T ANY
- Like seriously... If anybody has any, by all means, let me know, however, I will probably disagree because WOW is just that good!

Do yourself a favor and get this. If you can't afford it but are planning to buy something cheaper... DON'T. Save up and get this!

I wish I could give it ten stars honestly, this and loops are the top two gimmicks you can carry. Don't wait until it is out of stock to start regretting that you did not listen to me!!!

Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on November 22nd, 2019
I have older version and I have gimmicked and ungimmicked. I pull out ungimmicked and hand it to spectator and say "Examine this closely and then we'll get back to this in a minute" I put ungimmicked sleeve in shirt pocket next to gimmick. Then I have then pick a card sign and get lost i deck. I then pull out gimmick which the have already 'examined' ...lol and do the reveal.... Blows them away. Put gimmick back in pocket, and switch immediately the non gimmick and say" you dont trust me do you...here look at it again...." lol Masuda a god !!

WOW 3 Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on September 10th, 2019
The only thing that could make WOW3 better would be if it was offered with a different card. Ut comes with the 5 of hearts but I would gladly pay for a second WOW3 with a different card so one could switch out the 5H for the other card and repeat the illusion.

Other that than Kudos to Katsuya Masuda for a great piece of magic.

WOW 3 Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on September 3rd, 2019
First, let me start by saying that I don't like gimmicks; and don't usually buy them as I have always been disappointed for one reason or another. I feel that a magician should be able to perform effects strictly on skill, not gimmicks.

That being said, I feel this is one of the best gimmicks that I have seen in a long, long time. It is easy to perform; has a good impact on the spectator; easy to clean up; and, most important easy to transition to the next effect. And, it provides a nice souvenir to spectator.

I feel it is the first gimmick that gave me my money's worth.

Wow 3.0 Think about it. . . Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on January 3rd, 2020
I own the original Wow sleeve, and like most of you, thought that Wow 3.0 would be a definite improvement over the original. . .even if the "improvements" were less than substantial (which they are). The only differences between the original version and Wow 3.0 are a *very slightly* thinner bezel, A *slightly* improved resolution, and it's manufactured from a better material. The price reflects the original version.

Now, many of you will be disappointed with these "improvements" if you owned the original version first, because you just spent another $40.00 and discovered. . . minimal differences. I contend that you knew that right out of the gate, but you probably hoped you'd be thrilled with the purchase anyway in spite of that discovery, only to rediscover, upon having item in hand, that you're just not as okay with it as you had hoped you'd be.

The bezel IS thinner, the material IS better, and the resolution IS improved to an extent, but, because it's "improved" (and I admit, I go back and forth on this), it almost appears to be *darker* than the original because of the "higher resolution," if that makes any sense. More, and smaller *dots*, means more of them (though smaller) which *seems* to have a bit more *darkening* effect than the original Wow--and that's precisely what we were hoping to move away from, if I'm not too badly mistaken. But, again, it's NOT so obvious as to be definite--sometimes I believe I see improvement, other times, perhaps not so much. Might just be me!

Nevertheless, we all raved when we got the original Wow in spite of this *setback*, because it just looked so phenomenal! It STILL looks just as phenomenal regardless of its possibly appearing slightly "darker," and if you had never purchased the original Wow, and only received Wow 3.0 for the first time, you would likely have the same reaction to Wow 3.0 that you would of had with the original Wow. In other words, you'd probably, without comparison, be just as blown away by Wow 3.0, if not more so!!!

To update, or not to update, that IS the question! Are these *minor improvements* worth another $40.00? I updated simply to have "improvement," and I could afford it. Some can't, or won't, see the value in these minor changes and will therefore disagree with my review, and that's a good thing! I can honestly say that I feel Wow 3.0 IS an actual improvement over the original. I've seen online comparisons between the original and Wow 3.0 as well, and I feel that they are pretty accurate, so one CAN see the difference before purchasing, if researched. I highly recommend that you do research and make the decision for yourself as I'm sure opinions will vary widely. In the final analysis, YOU have to be comfortably satisfied with what you present. I'm very happy with Wow 3.0!!! I wish discount consideration would have been given to those who purchased prior versions of Wow, but life is short, and I'm willing to absorb the additional cost and move on.

Based on the fact that I gave the original Wow a 5 star rating, and, considering that BOTH versions leave a little to be desired, I intend to use Wow 3.0 just as happily as the original version (FOR CLOSE-UP ONLY), and feel only slightly put off that the "Wow gimmick," in any iteration, can only handle "so much" improvement satisfactorily. And, if you've never owned the Wow gimmick in any form, and you're interested in performing it, I wouldn't hesitate at all in making the purchase--I confidently doubt you'd regret it!!! It's simple to perform, extremely visual, and gets HUGE reactions!!! Additionally, if you perform it close up, with typically adequate lighting, spectators should find no difficulty in seeing and appreciating the effect!

Many magicians find the sleeve difficult to justify, many don't bother. If you're one who believes this is necessary, or you're simply more comfortable explaining the sleeve, imagination overcomes this problem. Simply tell the specs: ". . .This transparent sleeve is a *collectable card or picture* protector with shading to prevent light damage. I use it to ensure that you know my boney fingers can't employ *shenanigans* instead of magic!"

Now, once the sleeve IS justified, the crazy little thing STILL. . .simply withers *smart* minds!!!

Your mileage may vary. . .

So low tech seeming but high tech optics Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on December 23rd, 2019
WOW 3.0 looks and presents perfectly. It keeps one of the cards in sight and "isolated" while you can loose the signed card in the deck. I say, loose, because it seemingly runs wild and escapes. Since the ungimmicked sleeve is no longer in stock, although Acar kindly pointed to it, I keep the sleeve in a plastic packet trick sleeve. Probably unnecessary but it might add a false memory or two.

How the...? Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on December 21st, 2019
Amazing little jewel that works like charm! It blows everyone's mind! My only reservation is that it must be performed in strong, direct light for the effect to be seen properly. I sometimes let one of my viewers hold my intense penlight on the gimmick as I perform, and that makes them feel like they are participating. Good work, Katsuya!
