I like the idea of this effect as something handy to keep in the pocket, and it is that. But the
"coins" are of the cheapest quality. Whether this is necessary for the trick or not, I still need to
determine when I get better Chinese coins next week. Maybe it's a weight issue?
issue with the trick is the string supplied (at least the one I received) is around half the length
that Wilson is using in the tutorial. Very few adult hands are going be able to use the string
provided. The bonus move is impossible to do with the string I received.
Although I really
like this effect, when the trick cannot be done with the props provided it is a big disappointment.
Heading off to Walmart now to get what should have been provided.

I love the trick, but, the provided string is ridiculous. Like the previous reviewer, I’ll have to
make a pilgrimage to Walmart or Joanns to purchase the proper items.

The coins are very cheap looking and the cord provided is way too short.

I love this. It can stand alone, or it can be added to Charming Chinese Challenge, coins across
with the supplied coins, or a three fly with the supplied coins. Nothing is gaffed. But the
handling is fantastic. There is an option not shown on the video to pull off the coins one at a
time. I prefer it that way. It stops being a puzzle if you have a person hold each end of the
sharpie. Now it is a miracle. The instructions cover a great ending where the last coin is pulled
off the rope by a Spellbound move. Then thrown back on. Finally the instructions cover a second
phase with an ADDITIONAL knot around the coins making this longer if you want it, more of a routine,
and more mysterious. Even without the coins and string supplied this is a good value and a real
worker of a trick. You'll be doing it in minutes and this is one I will actually use.

The reactions in the trailer got me... Don't let them get you.. If you perform this you will bore
you're spectators...I know I won't bite mine with this

fist let me say the effect should of been a download and half the price. the coins provided you
could find in china town ten for a dollar. the sting provided is so short. if you wanted to package
this effect especially for beginners you should of provided the sharpie and a 99 cent bandana so
they could do it right out of the package. the weight of the coins and quality is just trash they
will get caught and when they fall to the table sound just like that,,,,trash. its a good effect i
will use it but not with supplied props.

I don't much care how cheap the coins look. That's beside the point. I have to agree with the
others, however. How much more would it have cost the supplier to make the string 6-8 inches

Typical of R Paul Wilson. Never again. Props are junk. They won’t even earn space in a drawer.
Straight to the trash. They are like palming coins. Probably left over some other effect of his that
was junk. Not to mention, they are not even the same size as a silver dollar. What were you
thinking? String is a joke. Will not be scammed by him again. As for the trick, ok if you join it
with Charming Chinese Challenge. At best this should have been a download. Penquin should have
vetted this before releasing junk to their faithful customers. I guess it’s all about the money.

As is so often the case with Paul Wilson's magic, he has found another little puzzle in the magic
literature and added the touches to make this an amazing, fun to perform, piece of magical
entertainment. I encourage anyone who enjoys an easy to master coin and cord magic trick, to buy and
learn this. It's a delight and the reactions of audiences is wonderful.

Paul is a very good teacher, and his workmanlike manner and approach will help the beginner so buy
