I usually don't care for gum effects, but since it was a Nicholas Laurence effect, I decided to look at the trailer. And boy am I glad!

Definitely one of the coolest gum effects I've seen!

First of all, the download is well priced and the download process was simple.

Second of all, the download's filming and editing is well done with a length of 35 minutes.

Third of all, the effect & gimmick itself is awesome! Just a simple DIY that anyone who can unwrap a piece of gum can make. The gimmick itself it highly practical & well last a long time.

One thing I appreciated about the download was that the explanation is first then the gimmick construction. And also, during the gimmick construction, there's no edits - no "do this & that, then cut to what it should look like". Instead, you see how to make it from start to finish - a mere 5-10 minute of your time. There were a few sped up parts which helped make watching more of ease because you saw the action without having to hear commentary, which can slow down the process.

Overall, I'm glad I got this and can't wait to go out and perform it. There are so many ways that you could use this and adapt it to one's performance style.

As always Nicholas Laurence & Sensor Magic have delivered another great effect to the community!

Watched this! Nicholas Lawrence, IMO has the best potential to being one of the greatest creators of our generation. Although a lot of his work is gimmicky, from what I have seen its all simple methods, out of the box thinking, and visual. This is just another addition to his toolkit of amazing, simple, and visual magic.
The effect is amazing, as you see from the trailer, and Nick makes it look super visual. The gimmick, for what it is, is quite simple to construct and wont cost you much more than maybe 4 bucks (less than the download). It might take some time to make it, but honestly, I have spent much longer making gimmicks that do not come close to this. The method is workable. THe 30 second reset is more like 5 seconds and the pocket space is not too bad. I can see myself having some issues with pocket space, since I have mine laid out already, but if the situation arises, this is awesome.
The quality of the video is clear and Nicholas goes through everything you need to know.
Now I have to go get some gum and make this. It will fit perfectly in my school bag and it would be an awesome trick to show to some students! I could see this being a short bit in a small stage or parlor act as well.
Amazing Job Nicholas!!

Does this work with every pack of gum? I mean, in the europe we don't have the same gums are you right? So wondering if we can apply to other gums other than the one explained

Yes, if you have like-size packages of gum. As you can see that there's 6 changes, so 4 of them will need similar size packaging.

[Nicholas, hope that's not revealing anything]

Is it good for table hopping or too much reset? I saw 30 seconds and 5 seconds, do any of you use it over and over in the real world?

Is it just me?

The price I see is $9.95 not $5 like James said.

Or there is a currency option..

Well crud.. Would have purchased it yesterday If I had known this was a Intro price..

Probably just me but seems a weird way to hold a pack of gum -- makes it look like he is just rolling it a la a hot rod. Hopefully it is more than that -- just looks odd to me. Glad others like it

Just checked this out and I really enjoyed it! Someone on facebook posted a great presentation comparing this to the various candies in Harry Potter, that I think works really well in this situation! Tom Elderfield has a similar effect on Influx, but the methods for both are completely different. Nice job Nicholas!

Do you have to perform all 6 changes ? Seems a bit much . Hopefully you don't have to carry a bunch of gum packs ? If this is not the situation then I am in !

Finally watched the download. I really like this. Easy to construct and easy to perform. For $10.00 this is well worth it.

Ok, I'm having trouble finding the smaller packs of gum (such as juicy fruit)

Everywhere I look they are the large flat packs now.

Where should I be looking for the little 5 stick packs?

Thanks.

Sorry for going off topic but recently I saw Café member Magic Maddy perform this routine on YouTube or somewhere, made me realize I haven't seen him around here in quite a while.
I miss him because the masochist in me enjoyed being shown up in knowledge and talent by a 16 year old (at least he seemed very young.)
Anyone know if he is still around these parts?
Message: Posted by: tophatter (Jan 4, 2016 02:16AM)
This is a great visual effect ! I have been changing the gum with a small silk then the pack vanishes !

Been looking everywhere for the old style 5 packs of gum. Only can find Freedent.

Where has everyone found the 5 packs?

I tried Walmart, Walgreens, RiteAid etc etc... No luck

I have 5 of the six gum packets but finding the last stick type here in Canada has been a challenge. I have a couple old style candy stores lined up as my hopeful conclusion . The effect looks awesome and the directions to make it are clear and easy
Message: Posted by: Kuroth (Jan 21, 2016 11:58AM)
I found some good deals on Ebay for all of them
Message: Posted by: tophatter (Jan 22, 2016 01:04AM)
Just a tip here a good one wrap the packets up in Clear packing tape . This is mentioned in the explanation the gimmick will work smoothly & stay in great condition ! This also allows the changes to become more natural . You only need a half wrap on each face of the packet especially covering the pull tab . The gum packs will also look like they are plastic wrapped Shinny like a new pack .
