This is an excellent, simple, and very easy trick to do and it PACKS a punch when mainly the
presentation is right. Basic sleights that you already know if you've been into magic for a while. I
like this even more because one of the performances there was an annoying heckler who just wouldn't
shut up, and you can see Matthew Johnson handle it correctly. I wish I could give it more then a 5
stars. Awesome trick Mark!

I like me a good, practical TnR.... and I am a sucker for impossible locations! Chaptrick combines
them in an awesome presentation that people will remember you for! Mark Jenest proves, again, to be
a creative powerhouse in magic, and Matt Johnson teaches it very thoroughly. The setup is extremely
fast and easy, and you can take several performances of this with you, all in one pocket! Buy this
download for an effect you will use, often!

Very easy to do, and looks great, will definitely add it to my repertoire of card tricks!

I am disappointed that I missed the sale. I saw it and was too late (my fault). But I am very very
disappointed about the teaching of this trick. Majority of this trick was to teach the force.
Instead Mark shows you the same force in his trick "Melt" which he says "It's my favorite force".
Yet this is not the one he uses in any of the street performances; which is a much better force. I
have no idea how he did it after the spectator shuffled. No wonder the trailer is edited the way it
is. You will not learn the force they do on the street. Mark! Teach us that force! I want to know!
Please and thank you!

Please ignore my previous rating. Penguin has addressed the issue and I can feel extremely confident
giving this trick a much higher rating. I would like to thank Acar, MJ, Dalton and the rest of the
Penguin team. Amazing service! I can't thank you enough for not only understanding our viewpoints
but actually delivering. This is one reason why I keep coming back to Penguin on a weekly basis.

I fell in love with this effect as soon as I saw the demo video! Now even though I'm a Mentalist I'm
definitely adding this effect to my close up repertoire!!! The spectator reactions (on this video
and when I saw someone else perform this live) are priceless at a great price! Highly recommended.

It's a very visual trick explained well by Matthew Johnson. Not overly difficult to perform either
and very impactful if used correctly. Have had great responses from my audience once I learned where
to work it into my routine.
I have two comments:
1) Cards do not seem to fit in
the Chapstick containers easily. Is it possible that the size of the container has changed? I find
myself challenged by this significantly, and
2) Do not use as an opener. It's too long to
perform and you start to lose the audience's attention. Find something shorter for an opening
effect - but this fits in nicely in the middle.
Everyone I've performed this for has been left with their jaws dropped. The innocent nature of the
chapstick and the easy and justified moves makes this a keeper. Very little pocket space for a brain
melter. Mix this with the other chapstick effects out there like "Redline" by Dan Haus or"Smooth" by
Nicolas Lawrence and you have a great everyday objects set. Highly recommended
This is phenomenal. There's a reason for every move to limit any suspicions. Well taught, no
fluff, big impact. Good even for beginner!
This is probably one of the best effects that gets an "oh my god" and gasps every time I perform it.
I'm VERY particular with what I perform as i'm not just filling time. Not only is it a torn and
restored card, it's also to impossible location which the spectator is holding....AND they can
remove it...AND your left clean!!! I ALWAYS have this with me.
