Great effect for working. Easy to carry around, easy to produce, can perform without any
complicated set-up. Simple effect, yet can entertain and amaze the spectator with the proper story
line and performance ability. Gimmick is undetectable (at least the one I received). Recommend
purchasing the effect.
Good in theory, but the design of the rope makes it obvious when moving it that it's sliding, and
also the gimmick shoots apart sometimes at the "magical" moment, rather than slide seamlessly
together, causing it to be unpredictable, so I could never take a chance showing this to anyone
without getting caught and them laughing me out of the room.
Leather and Steel combines simple handling with a great gimmick and great looking props to produce a
visually stunning penetration of a solid steel ring onto a thin rope. If you love solid through
solid magic, this is one to add to your collection for sure.
Al Bach, the creator of the effect,
gives you a detailed explanation and discusses the presentation he uses, which can be adjusted for
your own personal style of performing.
Just watch the video demonstration and be ready to be
fooled badly! Highly recommended!
This is a real worker and a superb concept and design. I've had this for a few months from an
earlier version and I'm glad to see Penguin carrying this now. Al Bach is an unusually fertile mind
in magic. He's got excellent concepts and his products are solid and very visual. Expect to be
doing this within a half hour of watching the excellent video. Highly recommended!
