Manufacturer's Write Up:
Leap is a Coin-Through-Glass (or Ring-Through-Glass) effect, greatly improved in its presentation and method versus "the old days." There have been many great methods available in different formats, such as a pedestal under a shot glass inside of a larger glass, an item resembling a coaster, to utilizing a table. Some of those items are inconvenient to bring along and use for close-up magic or table hopping.
Leap, therefore, was developed for this effect - it is much easier to use, more convenient to bring along, and doesn't look suspicious. And it utilizes something that most magicians already carry with them -- a deck of cards! Hence, Leap is born.
You will amaze your audiences with Leap!
How accurate is the ad copy? No deception
What's in the box? Great packaging it all comes in an acrylic lazer cut box, I don’t know why I had to peel off the protected paper myself but oh well, You also get the gimmick and two shell tuck cases and a shot glass.
Key points: - A signed coin visually penetrates a solid glass, landing in a shot glass inside the larger glass! - Or, a marked finger visually penetrates a solid glass, landing in a shot glass inside the larger glass! - Easy to do - Looks natural -- accomplished with an innocent-looking gimmick - No electronics -- everything is in your complete control - Simple method -- one-hand touch
How are the production values: Poorly made video, mostly a straight on camera with no microphone and broken English subtitles.
Is it well made: The gimmick is very well made and comes ready to perform. There is some “talking” issues with it, but noise is covered by the sounds of the coin and glass. Plus working in a restraint the sound would be covered.
Is it well taught: Would have preferred an English tutorial of course, maybe even from someone other than the creator. The signed coin effect is hard to do, I’d recommend just doing the effect and a switch. Otherwise don’t borrow signing it. The cell phone effect seen in the trailer is also not taught.
Storage? Does it "pack flat?" It’s the same size as a deck of cards.
Does it "play big?" This is coin to impossible location at it’s best.
Difficulty / Skill level required: Very easy to do.
How much arts and crafts are involved? None comes ready to go
How practical is this in the real world? (can it really be done?) Yes, in the right conditions.
Overall score: let's toss out the traditional score of 1-10 and make this something that we all can appreciate and understand.

My thoughts It’s not bad, some people are calling it the trick of the year, and I’m sure it could be if you’re a restaurant worker, or a coin worker. Everything is well made and it’s super impossible looking
