Rating the 2019 Tenyo line...

Post by Steve S. » Sun Apr 14, 2019 5:27 pm

I am wondering which 2019 Tenyo releases you like the best so I am requesting that you rank all six tricks assigning a 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, or 6 to each trick. A 1 means it’s your favorite one and so on. A 6 means your least favorite.

Your opinion would be appreciated!

Product Name Item No.
SCREEN CLEAN T-282
CHOCOLATE BREAK T-283
PRINT IMPRESS T-284
DICE HOPPER T-285
INSTANT PORTRAIT T-286
SWORD REWARD T-287
It's a Tenyo day in the neighborhood!

First, I would like to thank all three of you for responding. :D :roll:

Second, I suppose that at least for right now, my list matches that of Rob.

Third, if anyone else would like to add their 2019 ranking list here, that would be great!

The rating could be different based on gimmick and effect.

For me based on gimmick / technical construction :
1. Dice Hopper (very unique, I`m not expecting Tenyo is using such clever loading and unloading gimmick and examinable at the end)
2. Chocolate Break (very clever and unique, never seen it before, althought not examinable)
3. Instant Portrait (nice simple mechanical construction with simple move)
4. Screen clean (very unique just with only a simple gimmick, I am pretty sure the impression will be different if this was never released before, the additional gimmick is an added value for the handling, examinable)
5. Sword Reward (Unfortunately I can guess how this worked at the first sight, so actually nothing new here, just another variation of crash dice)
6. Print Impress (Many magicians and laymen could guess easily how it works although it is partially examinable ) That`s why I made some modifications on the gimmick and routine.

Based on effect:
1. Screen clean : very2 direct, shocking and visual. As i said. unfortunately this trick was released before and so many explanation already available on tube and tons of knock offs so this trick lose already the moment unfortunately :( But no wonder it was a winner in Japan.
2. Chocolate Break : very visual too, restoration looks so clean.
3. Sword Reward : good looking props, classic, nice visual and quick effect.
4. Print impress : visual and direct but need improvement on gimmick side.
5.Instant Portrait : Not that visual because we need to cover the pieces. Nice surprise for spectator for the effect.
6. Dice Hopper : Not that visual because we need to cover but a nice classic matrix effect.

Well that`s my opinion :)

My thoughts:

1. Chocolate Break
2. Sword Reward
3. Dice Hopper
4. Print Impress
5. Instant Portrait

Chocolate Break is wonderful- really a beautiful prop and very clever in its workings.

Didn't have time to play with all of them, but Sword Reward and Chocolate Break are certainly among the best Tenyo made the last couple of years.

I agree with you David!

Interesting to see a variety of opinion but that is to be expected depending on what each of us like in a prop/effect.

The variety of uses for Sword Reward I have seen so far is consistent with my initial theory that it will be a versatile prop and I personally like that.

Nice to see more response to this thread! :)
