[quote]HEAL A PUNCTURED CARD IN SLOW MOTION

Harness the raw power of Wolverine at your fingertips.

Pierce a hole, straight through a playing card. This is not an illusion.

Like movie special effects pouring from the screen into reality... the hole begins to slowly and undeniably heal itself inches away from your face.

Created by PH OntheRoof and filmed on location in South Korea, Pharasyte 2 combines refreshing methodology with slap yourself in the face simplicity.

Make this up in seconds with nothing more than a couple of everyday, very basic items and youíll be performing this before youíve even finished watching the download.

Itís almost 2017 and youíre about to get futuristic super-powers first with this next generation hole regeneration.[/quote]

Looks pretty good! Definitely interested in some reviews. The restoration in slow motion looks like a camera trick

Looks visually stunning and simple.


Wonder how much of a pain the gimmick is.

Just purchased

I like it! It's very simple, very riminiscient of sword through card. It's very simple to construct and I imagine it's quite effective. I will make it up and give it a shot!

One thing to note: the gimmicked card can't be examined.

For $6, it definitely isn't a bad effect at all!

Hopefully that's not too much of an issue - if there's good reasoning to bring it back to the deck

In case you'd like to see what this looks like performed by someone other than the creator, here's a quick video I made. It really does look wild.

Spectators are gonna want to examine that card.

You bet. That's why it's priced so low. :rotf:

And as a magician you'll be able to top change it. Easy :)

Almost all gimmicked card effects need a switch to be examinable. I don't see that as a negative for PH's effect.

Conclusion:
Perfect for video magic!

Pretty lame that it would say "by PH" - this is NOT by Paul Harris. Stupid attempt to capitalize on someone else's name and brand if you ask me. And no, it's not really clear from the "ontheroof" spaced out after it that it's someone else. Especially since the title of the video also says "By PH."

Here are two similar effects.

The Wolverine Formula - Jordan Johnson:

Both of these work with different methods than this. All three definitely have similar qualities, but each one is also different enough to warrant a release in my opinion.

This was definitely not E's decision. If you've been on Instagram for more than a minute watching magic, you'll recognize the username. I believe Paul Harris was one of his influences, thus the name. Most of his effects have PH as part of his brand. While yes it is confusing, it's definitely not Es fault that he prefers to go by that moniker.

This looks really good!! And it's only $6~
Message: Posted by: Jason Messina (Dec 13, 2016 12:29PM)
JustJoshinMagic - It's bad judgement on E and the creator's part. The letters PH have been associated with Paul Harris for over almost 40 years. I'm not watching magic on Instagram. I clicked because I thought this might be a new release from Paul Harris. I've been inspired by Paul Harris too, but I would never use his initials when selling a trick. Especially since Paul Harris never appears in PH Presents effects, one could easily think they were getting a PH endorsed effect.

In my opinion which counts for nothing, this is an excellent release. We are magicians and we can see how it works, but I can see that this will be incredibly strong live and up close. Cleanly pushing a pencil or a pen through a card and then watching heal is brilliant.

Joel.

That was what I thought too. When I saw "PH" I actually thought it was a Paul Harris product. Next it will be "Dai Vernon, filmed live in Korea.
