How accurate is the ad copy? no deception

How are the production values: Murphy's Magic makes great videos - this is well cut, well shot, well mic'd and with no distracting music or environments.
Is it well made: this is very well made on par with other well known light up
Is it well taught: Kyle gives you over an hour of teaching for a gimmick that is easy to learn. You will also get some great magic: a coin bend, a straw melt, a nail bend and a trick with a lighter.
My thoughts (what I personally liked/disliked): I liked it's functionality, but I didn't love the "open hands" / "proof" hand pose.
Storage? Does it "pack flat?" packs the same as a t.t.
Does it "play big?" combine this with your favorite coin bend or smoke device and you'll have everything you need to start your own religion
Difficulty / Skill level required: super easy - after watching a few minutes I was able to do it right away
How much arts and crafts are involved? you "might" have to size it to fit your hands, but I didn't have to
How practical is this in the real world? (can it really be done?) this is a utility that should be used in connection with another effect. But it's just easy to use in the real world as a reel, a t.t. or something equivalent.
Overall score: let's toss out the traditional score of 1-10 and make this something that we all can appreciate and understand.
