This has the potential to be a great close-up effect. Unfortunately the gimmicks that are supposed
to make the effect work are not dependable at all. Without revealing the secret I will say the
gimmicks are magnetic and the purpose behind using them is very clever. The trouble is they don't
work all the time. There are times when they work perfectly and other times when they don't work at
all. I can't use an effect that only works some of the time or even most of the time. Has to work
every time. I even ordered a second one to see if it was any better. It wasn't. Improve the magnetic
gimmicks and you will have a very good effect. As of now I don't reccomend it.

Over all great idea and workable in the real world if the gimmick ever loosens up and I would give
it five stars
if it does. Maybe others are not finding it a a issue,
but with mine so far
there is not a easy in or pulling
it out of the card. But like I said it could
be just my

Gone is a cleaver idea and method that will fool your audience every time.
1) You don't need a to carry around a special gaf deck. You could even
borrow a deck as long as its a new red Bicycle brand deck.
2) Packs light
can be signed.
4) It looks like you could make the gimmick if you needed to replace it. But
should last a long time out of the box.
1) When you put the card in the
white envelope, it's a very tight fit. This also makes it hard to remove the card at the end of the
trick. However, Nick explains that the envelope should loosen up after several uses. I hope so.
I would have given this 5 Stars had it not been for how important the 1 CON was.
this starts working better, It will be in my daily routine.
I hope this helped,

Its a great trick, and goes great with other card routines you have. The only issue i see is you
really have to hide the deck in your hand so the gimmick is not seen. I have had people ask to see
the envelope so don't think you don't need the extra one that comes with the trick and just leave it
in your pocket incase.

I have been using this for a while now and it's a killer. It's super clean and very easy to do. The
gimmick is very well made and does all the work for you, it's that easy.

This is a great trick that I will use on a regular basis. Good explaination are provided. Like
other reviews I do have some concerns with the gimmick it self and with how long this will really
last if used regularly. I wish it would have come with couple extra gimmicks for that price.
Overall I hope I will be able to keep it for a while and hope Penguin will come with refill options
to adress the concern I did mentionned like other reviewer did as well.

This effect is very simple yet very powerful. You may be surprised at the reactions you get with
this one. I did change the handling a little so that the "move" isn't so obvious but other than
that, I have zero complaints. This trick is really fun to perform. I love the way that the gimmick
works, it's just so fun to perform. It is a VERY clean appearance in an impossible location and
when combined with Brandon David and Chris Turchi's "Envylope", it's a killer. The envelopes for
these effects are nearly identical. Love love love this. This is the best effect that I purchased
for the holiday season by far.
