I love this. The gimmick is very difficult to make by yourself but the one that Tenyo produced is perfect but little bit fragile, so we need to be careful with it. All props can be handed out for examination at the end. The packaging is very2 tricky. :D

This is a fabulous Tenyo effect.

I can't think of a good reason to not rate it a 10.

(maybe it doesn't suit everyone's taste/personality, but it's rare AND very clever.
and now, on with the show ...

I wish I can buy one in the future, because the penetration effect is so visual.

Even though the trick may have some problems, the prop alone is beautiful. And even if one does not perform it, it looks so good in the magic cabinet!

Another Tenyo I don't have but now wish I did. Somehow, I haven't managed to get one. Because of the delicate nature of the prop, I would prefer a new sealed one and suppose that is unlikely.

So, I am right behind you Alex in line to buy one of these. Wish us luck!
It's a Tenyo day in the neighborhood!

I just recently acquired a Crossroads. Unlike what some of these post say, you cannot hand out the pencils to be examined afterwards, without giving away the secret. Mine came with the gimmicked pencil and a pencil that was in two parts, looking like it had been cut in half perfectly. At first I thought maybe the two parts joined by magnet, but no, it is just a pencil cut in half. There is really no need for this, since this is not the gimmicked pencil. Or, are there other pencils available somewhere that can be used with this, perhaps gimmicked differently?

That pencil cut in half was just used for packaging purposes. They are not part of the trick.

Oh, guys, I finally found crossroads to buy. Actually, I ended buying two, one of each color!! :o

It appears that there is a white/red version and a red/white version.

Unfortunately, I do not own either one of them. :cry:

I'm giving this trick an 8. I find it to be very ingenious, but the handling isn't very easy (not that difficult either). The gimmick is fragile, yes, but carefull handling will keep it perfect.
