I have been thinking of purchasing some of Steve Fearson's downloads on his site. How many of you have done this? How practical are these effects? Thanks for the help.

I'm not an expert on the subject, but my understanding (from all I have read on the Café) is that Mr. Fearson flew the magic coop months ago to get involved in a religious group. I would be quite wary if I were you with my hard earned money.

Get your self some confirmation from some of the more trustworthy members of this Café that Steve is back in business and legitimate. If you can't get that, then the red flags should be waving like they have been hit by the latest Florida hurriicane!

Just trying to be a friend and help you to not lose what is in your wallet for a handful of magic beans.

Best,
Doug

I have seen some of his effects, but most of them I feel aren't really that great or special.

What the heck????

Yes Steve is "out" of the magic scene(accourding to last goodbye), but that doesn't mean you are going to get ripped off he is still a reputable dealer!!!!

Many of his effects are awesome, area51+goodbye vanish are just some that I have and enjoy.

Check it out, you'll certainly get your moneys worth at least.

Read my post again CAREFULLY. I NEVER told the man for a fact that he would be ripped off. I just advised him to excercise caution, and be on the "safe side". "When in doubt, use your snout."

Steve has some great material, then again some of his stuff looks like he ripped it off of a 3 year old Smile

Honestly, his stuff sounds good on paper! not so good to perform.Take insertion as an eg: sounds great - demo looks great on the site - UNEXAMIBLE- let me quote his manuscript: put the case in your pocket an run like heck!

I was alittle disappointed with some of Steve's products. Although I love his Floating Cigarette routine, and his levitations are very fun to perform. I didn't like Thumbthing very much, but I did perform it successfully for a couple of people.. so I guess it was worth the money. His effects are well priced IMO.

I only liked his Floating Cigarette and Area 51 routine. (very similar methods)

IMO only get those 2. others aren't really that spectacular as it sounds on the site

cheerios

His floating Cig is amazing! Totally worth the money. Other than that, his illusions are like others said 'Good on paper, bad in reality.' I do like the Goodbye Vanish, though, very creative Smile

Well, I went ahead and purchased his Card Pack, and the Goodbye Vanish. Not sure what all I will use. I know I will probally use the floating card for sure, and the disappearing card box, but not sure what else. For the price its not to bad. He has some intresting items. I may purchase his floating cig in the future.

I would describe most of his stuff as "toys". It's not exactly something you would use in a routine. Or can use for that matter. They are just that, toys.

One effect that I found worth the money was 'Static Elevation" but the gimmick gets old and breaks, so you have to constantly replace it, and it is quite an involved task.

Final cut was pretty good, except he needed to include a few more of the fake "cuts" because they wear out and get lost, and I have no idea where in the world to find replacements.

I wonder if Steve ever regrets selling the rights to his best release...the laser?

What kind of impact would this have had on the average performer? Would this have turned into the next thumbtip?

Now the crazy stuff he is doing....so odd!

I really like thumbthing a lot its really creative and killer. I don't really like the magicians levitation I have performed it but not at all with success I was always caught because the card slipped. I hate insertion its horrible. the vanishing case is cool but it could be better with some adaptions. Goodbye vanish is a new spin on an old concept. Fearsons box and floating cig are great. Area 51 is basically a spin off of the floating cig. the source is good but he tells what the sources are in area 51 so don't buy the source get area 51 instead. The basics is good for beginers. easy float is a good idea but your better off getting some invisible thread.
I hope I helped aid your disicions,
John
