From the creative mind of the French magician, Alexis de la Fuente, comes a brilliant piece of card magic. Pen Pal is one trick you will carry with you at all times. Any signed card appears under a Sharpie pen clip.

Perform it as a stand alone piece, or at the end of your favorite ambitious card routine.

When Alexis sent this effect to me, via a video clip, I genuinely thought he was joking. The switch is simply invisible. With only minutes of practice, you can openly exchange one card for another, in a SPLIT second.

The Gimmick can also be changed in seconds. Do you perform mentalism? Then change the gimmick for a folded written prediction. Pen Pal also works with any type of bill. It will also work with any playing card design.

The DVD features two bonus handling's for Pen Pal, one of which is totally impromptu. It uses nothing but a regular Sharpie.

This is a unique, relatively simple approach to a impossible location. Well taught, as usual, by Mark Mason. Requires a Mercury (or other) cf, which is taught, but should be a sleight consideration. I took off a star because the effect is costume dependent. A jacket is not required but a plain tee will require some brainstorming. Also, cut of trouser/jean pockets is a consideration.

Mark is an fine teacher. I liked how he explained a gimmick version and non-gimmicked version. Also, his subtleties were a nice touch. This is very versatile, a great card to impossible location, and easy to perform. I highly suggest it to anyone that is the least bit interested.

That being said, here are my negatives.

There are better card to impossible locations- many of which don't require gimmicks.

Anyone that has been doing magic a long time might be disappointed with the method, if they were expecting this to be something more than re-inventing the wheel.

Lastly, I purchased this as a mentalist. I was intrigued how my b***et work might be enhanced by PEN PAL. What can I say? It would work. It would work well. But, it's not the strongest tool in any mentalist worth his salt. There are so many different ways to sw**ch B***ets or make open predictions. And, honestly, this doesn't quite meet the grade for me to use on a regular basis.

Here's whats great though. The strength of this trick is the way it is presented, as a CTIL. It's subtle, easy, and the handling can be adjusted to fit your style. It's not the most magical effect as presented but in the right hands it has potential. And, at least it's not an overdone card to mouth. This could be a great worker for a street or close-up magician.
