Manufacturer's Write Up:
Unlink is not an effect... it's a TOOL for every magician! The Unlink gimmick is very versatile and it's different from what you can find in the market (Twizted by Eric Jones, Shin Lim vanishing card,...). Here you have (for example) a freely selected card that is signed and placed in between two other cards. The signature is VISIBLE until the vanish and then you can make it appear in your back pocket
How accurate is the ad copy?
Accurate, nothing shady here.
What's in the box? Gimmick, DVD and extra material to repair your gimmick
- Endless possibilities
- Cards can be SIGNED and visible until the vanish
- Handmade gimmick
- DVD instruction with 7 angles to follow easily the explanations
How are the production values:
Not so good, especially in the age we live in now, where magic videos get better and better. Low lightning plus the camera angle is off and you can see a lot of "flashing" in the teaching.
Is it well taught:
On the DVD there is no live performance, no vocal teaching, and it's all done with subtitles. Of course the magic doesn't suffer from this and you will still learn all that you need to know, just be aware.
Is it well made:
The gimmick is very well made, but it's a gimmick that undergoes a lot of stress, and so I am guessing it will need repair work over time.
Storage? Does it "pack flat?"
This is easily a packet trick and you would probably care it as such, or as the top card in your deck.
Does it "play big?"
If you've seen the performance, then you'd agree this looks like real magic and should get HUGE results.
How practical is this in the real world? (can it really be done?)
This takes some set up to get into, but there is some tips on getting into the effect "on the fly" but I think this will work best as a "first" or "last" effect and it does end a little dirty.
How original is this idea?
Jordon admitted he was borrowing an idea from Twizted by Eric Jones - which is a Mark Mason gimmick
Overall score: 8/10
