Perfect? No. Great, ABSOLUTELY!!! Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on September 10th, 2019
Ok, I'm offering a completely fair and unbiased review. I've purchased this directly from Penguin, and have had time to play with my gimmicks and perform extensively.

PROS- Sturdy(possibly too sturdy)- I will address this in Cons. Well crafted in principal. Even if you know the secret that makes this work (If you've ever owned a multiple out effect using an envelope, you will be familiar with the mechanics) you will NOT be able to make this one work without knowing and practicing the handling/method. Even if your layman spec has a vague idea of what just happened, they will NOT be able to work this envelope. Extremely easy to learn/perform.

Cons- Price first and foremost- for what you get, let's face it- It's very expensive. It would have been nice to receive an extra envelope to insert our gimmick into once the paper becomes frail or starts deteriorating. Sturdiness- This thing is HEAVY, even without a load- let alone two loads if you're using this as a switch device! In the hands of 4 out of 5 specs, the first comment is regarding it's unusual weight. It brings heat, but crowd control is our job. Anything larger than a double folded bill or piece of paper loaded, and the area may not seal as displayed in demo without the occasional mishap. Performing out of a shadow in daylight, or in a well lit area may expose your gimmick; dont throw caution to the wind if you plan to perform for laymen who aren't obedient sheep. Method/gimmick can be easily exposed at right angle if given enough handling time.

Demo- Great teachings by Ricardo; comical approach, handlings and applications are very thorough. However, 50/50 principal and basic switch are the only things covered in detail without having to either own or purchase one of many other effects referenced. Starts to feel like an ad or promo for other effects to use in correlation with Black Door.

Overall 4 out of 5 stars because of price. As critical as I'm being- I've yearned for the perfect switch envelope for many years and this comes as close to ideal compared to anything else currently on the market without having to construct your gimmicks yourself.

Four stars because this does what it's supposed to do: it switches bills, cards, etc. and it does it well and it does it while the spectator is holding the envelope. So why not five stars? Well, because the gimmick is easily exposed if the lighting is bright. And, as others have noted, for the price they could have provided more than two envelopes. They're paper, after all, and durability is a question mark. The instructions are good, and this is definitely something that can be a stunner with the right effect.

Awesome Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on September 5th, 2019
Just received mine and they are everything promised in the sales video. Easy to use and foolproof. Lots of potential effects possible. And they are quite sturdy and should last for dozens and dozens of presentations.

Good idea but. Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on September 20th, 2019
The idea for this is good but the quality is obviously not great because they are literally made of paper envelopes. you get 2 gimmicks and while practicing the move to make it happen, the paper has started to weaken, and if I were to do this in performance, I would probably have to take the gimmick apart and make another 2. This two gimmicks that they give would probably last one night in a walk around situation. I would have given it a higher rating if they gave us some more material to make more envelopes yourself.

is a utility, not a trick. I have made over 200 purchases from Penquin and this rates in the top 5. I would have given it 10 stars if they would only provide refills!

WAY OVERPRICED Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on September 28th, 2019
This product is way overpriced for what you get. They should have thrown in at least 2 more envelopes or materials to construct your own replacements.

Very well built. So many ways to use it. Place loose letters in and take out a special message to someone special. It will definitely make their day. Your imagination will go wild with ideas. Very clever device.

Black Door Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on September 16th, 2019
This is a nice switching device. The instructions recommend trimming the inside flap, which decreases the likelihood of flashing. For $39.95, I would expect more than 2 black paper envelopes, and at that price, the seller should have trimmed the inner flap before shipping. In the rush to market this item, Penguin should have insured availability of refills for such a device, given the relatively delicate paper construction. The device works fine, I’m just annoyed at paying that much.
