I bought from Penguin and really, really do not like Tornado Box. Here are my issues:
This effect is not presentable for close-up (as in right in front of a spectator). The gimmick does
not look "seamless" like the promo or instructional video even 3-4 feet away in relatively poor
2) The gimmick is very noisy. Not good at all for quiet rooms or intimate
3) The gimmick is not examinable at all. Assuming you get past my #1 and #2
issues during a real-world performance and were able to perform a miracle, you most certainly cannot
pass out the box for examination if requested. And, people will ask to see the box.
a trick that meets my very reasonable requirements? Little Door. Can be performed practically in
front of spectator's face under any lighting conditions, it's a silent gimmick, you end super clean
and can even hand them the box.
I broke some basic magic purchase rules when pulling the
trigger on this purchase...sometimes it's best to stay away from tricks that don't provide full
spectator performance videos. Also, there were no big-name testimonials. (Big-name testimonials
aren't always a good gauge, but their recommendation can be a helpful deciding factor)
cannot recommend this at all. If you perform for real people in diverse settings and not just in
front of your mirror, there's a good chance you’re going to be extremely disappointed.

Best trick by Mickael Chatelain. Everything is great about this trick. The only downside is the
sound it makes when the change happens. Everyone ask whats that clicking noise but other than that
the trick is awesome!!!!! This trick will probably sell out quick.

MC has done it again! I cannot put into words how great this product is. I have been a loyal
supporter of Mickael Chatelain and his work however when I received this it was completely
exceeding all of my expectations. It's not made of the way people may think it is and even if it is
what you think it's built so well and will work on any red box of cards if you get it in red.
I don't have anything bad to say about this there is one little thing that might be A little
problematic to some but not to me it's just a little bit of practice to maintain that from being as
noticeable with the sound it may make however it's not noticeable to me especially when you're
performing or even doing it in a room with noise. Other than that there's obviously a few things
that people might comment on ano be a little concerned about but I'm not at all , regarding angle
issues or things like that it's pretty well covered but if you hold it normal without making
yourself seem skeptical being confident just like anything with practice you will be a pro in a
half hour. You'll find yourself playing with this utility trick creating your own ideas and how you
can use it for so many different things In coordination with other products you might have all the
time as it is that addicting.
please understand that this is not just a gimmick one and
only special InK effect... this is a utility device that you can use for anything that you think of
it does not have to be for cards it can be for any kind of Revelation you want to do of course you
will use it with cards if you're a person who will put this on a box of cards. I am so grateful for
this purchase it is definitely the best purchase I have made this year hands down and I see this
blowing up selling out very fast and that's why I'm going to purchase two more. You get everything
you need and you'll be performing it within less than five minutes and he has a 17 minute video very
short the understanding and setting up takes less than 10 minutes the rest is his ideas which are
brilliant and you get about 10 of them Plus your imagination is the infinite limit , I have a great
routine that combines this with double cross. One of the routines MC teaches in the video uses Two
gimmicks and I love it so much getting A couple of more as I said. For what you get in this package
compared to other effects that do Visual things like this and the price it is so affordable my
routine using this with double cross and even little Door all makes a great combo. I had to leave
a great review of this because it blew me away after realizing how it worked because it takes me a
little bit to understand that ah ha moment of realizing how it works and certain things that you
don't really see you until you get to the point where you don't realize the gimmick might do more
than you think. Every single download or purchase/CGI or Ink related effect you will be tossing in
your arsenal collecting dust as this is in the forefront always on you.
Thank you penguin
for putting this out with the excellent affordable prices and once again thank you to mickael
chatelain for the superb products that you create. I also ordered flashback which just came out as
well and I never underestimate MC's work . If any of you have any questions on this I would be
happy to assist my fellow penguin 🐧 magicians as always. AndrewAceMafic@Gmail.com. Just when you
think you have learned everything you could do with this utility it hits you because the things he
teaches you opens up more doors in the way I keep emphasizing how this is more of a utility Really
tearing apart every other bank related affect on the market except doublecross of course and little
door which go great together as I mentioned. I'd be happy to tell you got my routine I created with
all three. Don't miss out on this before it sells out as the Price, the product, everything about
it is a brilliantly made piece of work you'll always be able to blow minds impromptu Or a quick
Say goodbye to the other Ink effects that seem to be visual and everything you may
get in about five products. Welcome to tornado box where you have a world to do anything you want
whether it's simply drawing a prediction that changes, word, cards, rising cards, writing in
Braille, X's- exes , drawing and object and making it appear out of nowhere and so on. The list is
endless as I have said get this sells out! Enjoy, hope my review was helpful to those interested and
feel free to reach out - Andrew

Never have I reviewed a product, but felt like I should say something about this. I'm no pro nor do
I make money with magic. I just enjoy it, collect it, and break out a few things at home, work, or
out and about. This can only be done on a stage or far away. This can not be examined. It is
decently made and the effect looks pretty good from a distance. But it's nothing I could break out
and get away with. And yes, there is a bit of a noise. I'm giving it 4 stars because I think it
would be good for certain people under certain circumstances.

Great product with so much possibilities!
I did a mentalism trick at the IBM 185 meeting last
and Tornado Box rocked the house.
This morning I told the baristas at Starbucks
that I will draw 3 coffee drinks
on my card box and you will know exactly what I want. The
drawings then morphed into my order written in detail above the coffee drinks. They were
blow away and wished they had more customers

I bought this because it looked great on the trailer.
And again after 5 years of "no purchasing
anything until I see it in front of me" I made the mistake and bought a product from watching the
The idea is great as you can see on the trailer.
But the sound that is happening when
the gimmick is "working" is too loud.
Also you can't be close to your audience because from the
side they will see that something is "strange".
Another product ended in my drawer.
Nicely made and clever as can be--and has a million uses!
