"iBalance is, I think, one of the all-time best effects with a phone. Unlike magic with apps, it doesn't just look like technology. iBalance looks like REAL MAGIC. Best of all, it will never become obsolete as phones improve. This one is going into my daily repertoire." -Joshua Jay

"Mark showed me iBalance while I was lecturing in the UK and fooled me very badly. He suspended my own iPhone in the bloody air...and I had no clue how he did it!" -Bill Abbott

"iBalance fooled me badly. Super practical. Super clever. Completely mystifying." -Cameron Francis

Pull out your phone, or even borrow a spectator’s, and impossibly balance it on a single fingertip. Updated for a modern age and with modern phones, iBalance Plus allows you to suspend the laws of physics for Android, iPhones, and more. This is iBalance Plus by Mark Elsdon.

With iBalance Plus, you will receive custom gimmicks that work with iPhone, Android, and various other smart devices. No suction cups, magnets, or adhesives are used. You’ll learn to balance an iPad on a single finger, and any cell phone on the very tip of a marker. iBalance comes complete with a thorough instructional download taught by Nick Locapo. You’ll learn a full routine, as well as a variety of applications that you can use in any situation. The best part is that when you are finished, you can hand the cellphone or other electronic device out for examination. Take your cellphone to the very edge with iBalance Plus by Mark Elsdon.

NOTE: We want to give a special mention to our friend Hanson Chien, who created the effect that use Sharpie to balance the phone.

Nice Effect But With Flaws Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on August 7th, 2021
Cons : the gimmicks are very small and the included shipping box is 3rd rate.....so easy to lose the gimmicks

This product will NOT work with ANY iPhone model earlier than an iPhone 7.....no 6 no 5 no 6s. This should have been divulged in the description. (I do not own an Android phone, so I have no comments on that platform. ) So while the presentation is much better using a borrowed iPhone, be careful what you ask for.

PROS: Nick does his usual great job explaining the trick, the variances and the maintenance. Oh yeah, you may need some.

As Nick said, this is not an effect that will shock people with amazement. I think it is better suited for incorporation into other iPhone tricks, which is another reason to do it with your own iPhone and not run the risk of problems with borrowed phones.

Better but with issues Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on August 27th, 2021
This version has some improvements over past models but comes with some negatives as well. The gimmick in the first version was basically universal for iPhone and Android phones. With the change in technology now each phone requires its own. This can be challenging in performance because you have to know what phone the Spec is using prior to performing the trick. The gimmicks are not interchangeable hence the need to use the correct one for each type of phone. One plus with this version is the ability to flip the phone over while it is being balanced. This is a real fooler especially for people thinking you are using "magnets" or "adhesive" to make it work. You may have to modify the stock gimmick slightly to pull off this move unless you have thin fingers.
The biggest problem I have with this version is cost and execution. I feel the cost is very high considering what you actually receive for gimmicks. You should receive several of each type for the cost. They are very easy to loose.
I feel the execution is more difficult on this model. Actually attaching the gimmick to the phone seems more cumbersome with this version. The biggest problem I have is with CASES. Everybody has one. Who uses a phone without one? Nobody! Getting the gimmick to attach to the phone with a thick case can be problematic especially with the Android phones since the gimmick doesn't "lock" on like the iPhone does.
To eliminate many of the issues that I have raised here, use your own phone for the demo and start with the gimmick attached. Do the nice moves, Turn hand palm side down at end as you hand phone to audience to be checked giving you the perfect opportunity to clean up. Way less risky with nearly the same result as borrowing a phone. Hope this helps. Now go entertain someone.

OK but not magical Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on August 19th, 2021
This is OK but it is not magical as a "trick". Wrapping it into a routine might add some mystery.

The gimmick is clever enough, but difficult to use if the phone has a case on it.

Gimmick fell apart on second use. Yes I can fix it but requires me to go and buy a product. Too hard to use the existing bit. Too nervous now to contemplate doing this with a borrowed phone. Using an iPhone is harder to use than Android due to the way the gimmick attaches. This will probably will go to the back of my magic draw sadly.

IBalance Plus Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on September 5th, 2021
I really like the look of this and finally got it today.
Now in the video, Nick shows how to replace the gimmick. He does that around a bottle neck.
My gimmicks out of the box are 10mm across. They don’t even fit my little finger. This may well be a small thing but rather than go and play or practice, I now need to get a roll of hundreds of meters off line to use 3 inches of it.
A bit more thought could have gone into how wide you do the loop…

So good Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on August 26th, 2021
I enjoy this gimmick so much. I am always looking for a chance to use it and it gets a great reaction everytime. I would highly recommend this to beginners and advanced artists. Easy to use and just a fun impromptu trick to walk around with.

This is a very simple and very effective gimmick. Well taught by Nick L on the instructional video. Looks great close up and the angles are very good. Can be used with your phone or a borrowed phone. You will be using and perfecting this within 10 minutes.
