I would like to tell http://www.magic.org what I'm thinking or perhaps they already know. Barnum was right when he said "there's a fool born every minute," and I can't blame anyone but myself.
If you read the instructions or the advertising, no one even puts their name to creating this piece of garbage.
I suppose it is alright up to a point if it is you thing going about wearing a hippy style necklace but what if you are a corporate entertainer that wears a suit or for that matter entertaining during a wedding.
Some how even if could get away with it I don't think it would fool anyone.
Save your money.
Enough said.

Bummer. I've got one arriving... that'll teach me to wait.

Agreed, what a piece of rubbish.

Mine arrived. O... M... G...
I'm just at a loss for words.
As with Franklin above, there's really no one to blame but myself.

Sheesh. :(

Have you contacted the Magic Depot for a return? Here's their return policy
http://www.magic.org/store/returns.php

I've said it before, magic dealers are businessmen, if they're not willing to give you a refund, FOR ANY REASON then don't do business with them. The smart dealers will learn real fast that refusing refunds and refusing to deal with unhappy customers is a detriment to their bottom line.

If you are unhappy with your purchase, call or write the owner of the business, and POLITELY tell them you're unhappy. Ask them if they will refund you money or provide you with store credit. If they refuse, POLITELY tell them that you will no longer shop with them.

As a businessman, I can tell you that most will bend over backwards to make you happy and keep you as a customer.

Actually, I ordered mine with Hocus Pocus. I doubt they have a return policy. This month's IBM meeting here is auction night; I doubt I can sell this even if I dropped it down to Singapore dollars!

Did you even try? You might be surprised. I have found Paul to be one of the better dealers.

I just do not understand this reluctance magicians have with returning tricks that don't turn out to be what we want. When it comes to your hard earned money, stop thinking like a magician and think like a consumer.
