Usually i try to stay away from giving a bad review, in fact i dont believe I've ever given one.
this effect was poorly thought out,this effect requires precise set up witch judging by the trailer
is the exact opposite of they were trying to imply, this is not sn impromptu effect! The gimmick is
in plain view, they justify this by saying you can hide it with your body and well choreographed
action durring performance, witch means its not impromptu and must be preformed with a well thought
out execution, i have tried this on the street and its verry hard to find the right performing
conditions because you can't use just any window and i had to get permission from the shop to use
their window!so i had to build a crow and walk them over to the performing area hopping they didn't
spot the gimmick before i was abe to hide it wth my body. In my opinion not worth the effort or the
money for real world performance!!

I have not received the actual gimmick yet, but the video is now on my penguin account. I cannot
comment on the actual gimmick, but I can comment on the method. I'll update my review once I receive
the gimmick. I have never seen the method for a card through window, so this is my first time ever
seeing ANY card through window method.
1. Moves done to perform this require you
to know 2 BEGINNER basic moves. I've been doing magic for 8 months and learned both within month 1.
2. It can be done on MOST windows.
3. No trace of foul play can be found.
1. I don't think I'm giving anything away by saying this is obviously not impromptu. It will
require some set up for whatever window you use. You could technically set this up in your car and
just use your car window to do the trick.
2. Card dropped into and through the window cannot be
examined unless you do a quick top change or any change. However, there would only be a few reasons
why a spectator would ever want to touch or see the card.
Worth it from what I can see in
the video, but I'll keep you updated on the gimmick quality.

As long as you understand that you're not going to walk up to any window out of the blue and produce
a card on the opposite side of the glass (which you should understand), you will appreciate the
effect and the gimmick.
I buy many effects, and as I am not a pro nor semi-pro, I only
practice and perform those that are really workable for me. This trick, though clever, does not meet

This would be great for a youtube video or something. Takes set-up and some .... So not something
that you would be able to perform at a show or when you are doing effects say at a bar unless you
get lucky and have a perfect spot to do it. I think over priced for when and where you can do the

Disappointing. Thought the effect was more original and less complicated to perform. Not impromptu
and set up required before performance. Price not commensurate with trick.

Disappointing.....you have (better) materials laying around at home and you can craft the gimmick
better. One of my worst Penguin purchases when you combine the weak gaff with the impractical (at
least for me) limitations

Here’s why: it’s a cool idea but it requires a bad set up in my personal opinion. It also is angle
sensitive and the gimmicks card is difficult to use and grab. I posted this on my Instagram and got
a lot of views. The only problem is you will most likely never be able to perform successfully or
comfortably to a live audience. Not a very good trick . Not a good investment. Clever though.

PROS: It's a good trick. Really good. I fell in love when it first came out.
-Gimmick is not worth 3 dollars
-gimmick can be heard when moved
-gimmick also twists
-cards used for gimmick are split
OVERALL: Buy it if you
really want it. (But you're getting a shitty gimmick)

This delivers exactly what was promised. Any seasoned magician realizes the card does not really
penetrate the glass. It is an illusion.
The principle is very simple - a favorite attribute for
experienced magicians - and the handling is very well thought out.
The price may seem a bit
steep, especially when the materials required to construct the gimmick are not very complex. But
remember you are paying for the method and the immeasurable time and effort required to work out a
useful (I would say flawless) presentation.
This requires little 'Sleight of Hand' but deserves
a fair amount of practice.
I love it.

This is a wonderful trick if you don't mind the set-up and you are okay with the spectator not
handling the card after it goes through the window. For me I feel limited by it and for the amount
of set-up for an "okay" effect just isn't worth it. Plus my gimmick came a little goofy and I have
still have to fix it in order for an easier "move."
