Here are a few facts that I have been able to gather from this post and looking online. The bottle is factory sealed (You can let your audience inspect and break the seal) True and False – Only on the gimmicked version can the bottle be sealed. On the impromptu version the bottle isn’t sealed. From your ad that you have posted you have lead people to believe that all versions are sealed. So we all now know that it is only on the gimmicked version that it is factory sealed. The coin is BIGGER than the neck of the bottle: True and False – Once again only on the gimmicked version is the coin bigger then the opening while on the impromptu version the coin must be smaller then the opening. And again you have lead people to believe that in all versions the coin can be larger then the opening. Angles: You have said that the angles are great and no one would notice the gimmick but the only review that I have seen has a different opinion and said that the angles aren’t that great. While I know that you said that you e-mailed them the better handling they still didn’t change their review so I would say that equals a False. Combinable with a signed coin: Hmmm just read a comment by Wayno over at the bird – the question was asked: Wayno was nice enough to reply (Text in Bold by me) So again another false statement made by Andy. Let discuss crediting and research: Over at Talk Magic mediafarm said that he looked just like Pop Top Drop by Adam Williamson in 1999 and that it was published as a feature effect in Magic Magazine V09 N6 February 2000. Have you done the research to ensure that your effect is original and that you haven’t created sometime similar to someone else’s. While his effect uses a soda bottle and yours uses a water bottle I would like to know if you contacted Adam Williamson and discussed this or did you purchase a back copy of Magic Magazine and check this. Note I am not saying that you stole anyone else’s idea just that you didn’t go the extra mile to ensure that your effect was 100% original. So what I have learned so far is the following: 1)The bottle is factory sealed (You can let your audience inspect and break the seal) True and False 2) No labels:Not verified so I am giving this one a true 3) The coin is BIGGER than the neck of the bottle:True and False 4) Combinable with a signed coin: False 5) Slow and visual penetration: Was OK on the demo so I will give this one a True (would like to see a better Demo) 6) No cover during the penetration: I am giving this one a half true since the Clear Bottle is giving it some cover so the gimmick might be hidden by the bottle. 7) Coin penetrates at the MIDDLE of the bottle: True 8) Both coin and bottle are shown as separate objects before the penetration: True 9) Bottle can be examined right after the penetration. (No bottle switches): From the demo true 10) Easy to perform: From the reviews I am going to give this one a True since every effect is easy if you put in the practice time and effect and learn the effect and the ends and outs. Things not mentioned: Gimmick required you never mentioned that a gimmick was required but kept insisting that yours is a impromptu effect that is why you get a false. Gimmick is easy to construct…. Well we have two different opinions one is that it is hard to set up (from a newbie) and another that it is easy to set up from a more experienced magician so I would give this one a medium on set up. And as I discover more stuff about this effect I will post them. But from just what I have learned from looking online I don’t think that this one will be in my cart anytime soon.
