Creator: Steve Haynes
Publisher: Paul Harris Presents
MSRP: $ 40
Skill Level: beginner/intermediate
DVD Run time: 35:42
Type of effect:
New take on Eddy Corbuzier's "FREE WILL" plot. The performer allows the spectator to make three free choices only to find out that the Magician predicted in advance what all three outcomes would be.
Manufacturer's Write Up:
Hanging from your keychain is a clear photo holder. Locked inside is a scrap of paper with a secret message. Your spectator holds the keychain message in her hands. You then borrow ANY business card, ANY coin and ANY dollar bill. Your Spectator FAIRLY places ANY one of the three objects in HER Pocket. It's a completely free choice. She then FAIRLY gives you ANY one of the other two objects to hold in YOUR hand. She keeps the third FAIRLY CHOSEN object in her hand...NO Forces. Her choices are FREE. She can change her mind as many times as she wants!
THE KEY CHAIN PREDICTION SHE'S BEEN HOLDING THE ENTIRE TIME IS THEN READ: IT'S 100% ACCURATE!
How accurate is the ad copy?
Extremely accurate, this is a seemingly fair effect with not a single shady element.
What's in the box?
DVD, the "fair play" gimmick and a single sheet of insructions.
The Fair Play Gimmick is Completely Self-Contained and Self-Working.
How are the production values:
On par with all of Paul Harris' other projects. Easily looks like it could have been a par of the True Astonishment series, I think Bro Gilbert is even in the same location wearing the same clothes!
Is it well made:
Steve Haynes & Uday Jaduga have made a brand new gimmick I have never seen before in all my 20 years as a magician. The utility is convincing, sturdy and very examinable.
Is it well taught:
Like all of Paul Harris' products, this is a well put together item. Clear performance and explanations, multiple outs taught including additional thoughts and ideas - PLUS Andrew Gerard offers a really awesome presentation at the end of this.
My thoughts (what I personally liked/disliked):
I liked that this is an easy miracle. I love things that seemingly look and feel impossible, but are incredibly easy to do. The utility literally does all of the work for you. If you can remember a few simple directions, you'll be performing this SAME DAY!
The "reset" on this is a little knacky and could take getting used to, but that's just me, maybe I need to play with it a bit more. But the creator's obviously know about it to, since they included extra instructions on how to work around it.
Storage? Does it "pack flat?"
Attach this to your key ring and take it everywhere you go!
Does it "play big?"
This is an amazing piece of impossible mentalism, if you know how to wind up this punch, it'll deliver knock-outs for you.
How practical is this effect in the real world?
Very organic, couldn't be an easier device to carry with you and the items involved are also very easily acquired.
How original is this idea?
As stated above, it's a new coat of paint on an older plot, but the gimmick itself - is very original.
Overall score: 10/10
