These are my first impressions, not a full review because I haven't performed it yet! I got crush in the mail today. The gimmick is well constructed. The only thing that saddened me is that I ddin't recieve everything that was said in the DVD. It doesn't limit me to performing it but it limits me in a small way that hopefully theory 11 can fix for me. Other than that the impromptu version is splendid, and the gimmicked version is crazy awesome. This is practical magic folks. I will be practicing this and hopefully within the coming week I will post a performance review to family so I don't weaken the effect, and then later on I'll perform it live to real random people. I haven't had all the time to look at the DVD but I played through a few parts and you see full performances of the ungimmicked and gimmicked version Honestly if you watch the reactions of the people it's breathtaking. There is that silent moment of astonishment there. That is the best reaction! T11 gives you 2 methods so you are ready for pretty much any situation. Minimal sleight of hand. Gimmick probably takes anywhere from 5-10 minutes to setup and you are set forever The clean up is clever and awesome as hell. A new favorite effect. Awesome possum. The last tidbhit you guys need to remember is that...we do magic. There is going to be a secret so if it's simple or extravegant. Don't be discouraged that you know the method.
