Manufacturer's Write Up:
To the naked eye, the difference in page sizes is imperceptible and is supplied blank so that you can customize it however you like.
Each pad is then hand inspected and tested before shipment to insure perfection and exact tolerances. The SvenPad® looks like an ordinary spiral memo pad from your favorite office supply store, but beneath its innocent exterior discover one of the world's most powerful forcing utility devices.
With your SvenPad® in hand, you can create hundreds of effects in ANY language. This is the cleanest way to force ANY piece of information (or more) that you choose. It is simple, deceptive and hands-free! There is NEVER any heat on your pad!
You casually show all the pages of a notepad to be different (words, drawings, celebrities, destinations, foods, phone numbers, etc). Then, you hand the SvenPad® to a spectator to secretly peek at just one item. Somehow, the performer INSTANTLY knows exactly what she is thinking. Focus on your effect - not your methods.
The SvenPad® removes any risky or impractical methods and allows you to focus on your presentation, safe in the knowledge that the method WILL NEVER let you down.
How accurate is the ad copy? No deception
What's in the box? Gimmicked notepad, download code and 2 pdf instruction sheets with multiple ideas.

How are the production values: The video is shot in high quality, well mic’d and Brett Barry is easy to understand, there is some repetitive music in the background, but you get over it.
Is it well made: The quality of the SvenPad® is exceptional. All the short edges are insanely precision trimmed to less than 1/45 inch!
Is it well taught: You certainly get a mountain of ideas with this – your only problem will be in deciding WHAT to use your SVEN PAD for – so you better get a few
Storage? Does it "pack flat?" Looks and feels exactly like something you’d buy in the stationary isle, should easily fit in any pocket.
Does it "play big?" Mentalism effects are some of the most heavy hitting in magic.
Difficulty / Skill level required: the trick itself is extremely easy to do – the spectator and the pad do all of the work for you.
How much arts and crafts are involved? The books do come blank, so you will need to fill out your own forcing ideas. Use a Pentel Engergen pen for writing for best possible results.
How practical is this in the real world? (can it really be done?) Absolutely, great for walk around or stage.
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: I believe these used to be higher in price when they were first released and the material was not as extensive, to destroy his competitors, Brett Barry has gone above and beyond to offer you a competitive price point and a quality unsurpassed.
