Manufacturer's Write Up:
Doing magic with pens has built-in appeal, since everyone carries them, you can borrow them anywhere, and they are universally recognized.
You cradle a pen within a napkin leaving each end exposed in plain view. The spectator holds the napkin with the pen VISIBLY dangling beneath. You clap your hands together and...instantly...the pen disappears.
This is a practical, astounding illusion with the simplest of objects.
How accurate is the ad copy? No lies here
What's in the box? DVD, gimmicked pen and normal pen for examination
Key points: Easy to do, learn this within minutes of opening the package, perform it just as fast!
How are the production values: HD shot film, angles, beautiful locations, everything you'd expect in a quality magic product
Is it well made: This is far superior over the Dave Powell version we all used to have ages ago.
Is it well taught: teaching gives you tons of tips, advice and even repair information.
My thoughts (what I personally liked/disliked): I love the ease of performance and the visual image of the pen vanish.
Storage? Does it "pack flat?" All you need is a pocket to carry it in.
Does it "play big?" I'd do this as a pen vanish after you use the pen in another effect or right before as a "eye catcher" - I think it can play big, but it needs to be framed in a larger presentation besides, "hey, watch this."
How practical is this in the real world? (can it really be done?) This is very practical, you will do this effect all of the time.
Overall score: 9/10
