As a working pro, I've performed KeyMaster Reloaded for several years and LOVE the audience
reactions! It is far and away the most logical "moving hole" effect I have used. I was super excited
to get the new Keymaster Chrome. The keys are well made, handle better than the originals and look
more like keys you see in everyday life. BUT, the new set only includes three keys and my favorite
gimmicked key from the original set has been ELIMINATED! Not good. That particular gimmick allowed
you to show the hole in the key and without switching, pull the hole off the key and not have
anything in the other hand to ditch. Craig made a BIG mistake by not at least offering this
particular gimmick as an add-on for owners of the Re-loaded set. Craig, are you reading this? I hope
to see an expanded version of Keymaster Chrome with additional gimmicks in the future.

Don't buy this because it is SO GOOD. I perform it every day :) Keymaster has been around for years
and the chrome version looks so much classier. The keys will get dinged up pretty fast if you
actually perform it instead of collecting tricks like most do. I would suggest buying an extra set.
Or don't. I have already made this one of my specialty effects.

The gimmicks are very well made.
Only those magicians would use this who dont have a problem in
switching stuff in front of their spectators. You do need to perform a switch twice while
performing the complete trick.
And the best part is, its all examinable in the end.

One of my favorite tricks. Keymaster is a great routine and takes up very little pocket space. I
carry it every day.

This effect is excelent for walkaround and opening a set. It just seems so impossible, a hole in a
very organic and known item as a key moves from one key to mother and finally ends in the stem. Both
keys can be exminable at the end. Great effect.
I give 4 stars instead of 5 because the teat
here is Not a full uncut performance of the effect por real people from start to finish son we cn
see the timing, mis direction and complete routine. There are two live performances but they are not
from start to finish they are edited to show each part of the routine for different spectators.
Do not get me wrong, you will understand the teaching, but I would like the video more if the
two performances would be shown separately and from start to finish.
These keys are well made and look great and handle well. I did this at a carnival and they were
amazed. I got this when I saw the reactions of the couple David Penn did this to in the trailer.
One person could tell the keys weren't normal/were not cut to open anything. Not sure if that's
a concern but other than that, practise with this, especially with misdirecting people and you have
a real miracle here.
I bought this on another site because (at that time) Penguin was out of stock.
I also have
the original set. I prefer the chrome set because the keys are are cut and not key blanks. They do
tend to scratch fairly easily, but I assume the scratches will be easy to buff out with MAAS Metal
Polisher or something similar.
For $39.00, you get 3 well-made gimmicks. They probably
could have gotten away with a higher price point. Like coins, this effect packs small and gives your
spectators a break from all those card tricks. This is a good value for the price!
