Re: CUBE THROUGH WAND

Recently I obtained a very rare effect: a huge cube penetrates a wand. There is an amazing 'gimmick' involved which really was a big surprise to me I also like this penetration very much, unfortunately a bit too big ... *lol I'm still thinking about how it all works although I know the basics, just...

Re: Magic Wagon - Utopia Prediction Box

Yes, the box plays an important role in both versions I'm glad I didn't buy that trick. The idea is not bad but very suspicious and the box should not be given out of hand. When something is placed on the cards, it is a very unnatural action that immediately creates suspicion. I'm just thinking abo...

Re: Magic Wagon Triple Dice Vision now available

The workings/mechanism, however is very nice. The version I had was 'strong' enough to let people handle it casually. I find the trick technique also very clever implemented And as I said before, nothing stands in the way of a reduction Simply take only one cube (yellow) or choose another small item

Re: T-186 Antigravity Rock

Antigravity Rock is not a favourite of mine. The illusion looks so good on camera but in real life it was a bit of a let down. Sure, it still looks nice, but the fact you can not let the spectator examine the rock is a let down. I know, not all magic tricks need to be examined by spectators, and in...

Re: Reverso O Boxes

Yet I believe it's more convincing if at the end you show both nested boxes open In the given routines the boxes are usually not shown openly, only possible with a certain procedure and this limits the possibilities of these beautiful boxes from my point of view very much.

Re: New Magic Wagon: The Four Elements

I can now call this trick my own and must say that I like it optically very much. I also don't mind the fonts used - However, the criticisms regarding the not quite tight coloured chips are correct, but if you don't move the box massively, they stay in place .... I have also noticed that the upper w...

If there had been two bottles in the inner Box - I would have had to put the empty bottle on top of the filled one, but that would have made a noise ... If you take a closer look you can also see that I placed the empty bottle very low down. In addition, I moved the Box very quickly afterwards, whic...

Re: Magic Wagon Triple Dice Vision now available

I bought Tiple Dice Vision used and I am very fond of the little trickbox - I have hardly anything to complain about, which doesn't happen very often. From a layman's point of view everything is very unsuspicious. I also like the selection options to either reveal numbers of eyes or color of dice or...

Re: T-187 Mini-Morphosis

So the sound issue is the weakest point of this trick, then? The demonstration is not silent but there are certain ways to conceal or make it plausible. With plastic it won't be easy to create a silent version but it should be possible - But I would definitely prefer a wooden version to do justice ...

Re: Your favourite rare tenyo piece!

My silent favorite is still "Mini Morphosis" because it's the first Tenyo trick I found overwhelming years ago ... Unfortunately my new version doesn't work properly ... I would like to have such an illusion in a small wooden professional version which is also noiseless.
