Hey, I've seen his Impossible card magic video, very good stuff. How does this video rate from 1-10? And how good is the "the bite" effect on it?

Coming soon... Who knows!

I dont know about the rating - it was fun to watch and kosby is very technical. but for me and I guess for 99% of other magicians the magic there is not useable.

I thought the tape is pretty cool to watch. The Bite is definitely the coolest trick on the tape. A red apple becomes a green apple. It is very clever. Have I used it yet? No. But when I get my show put together, I will definitely use it.

If the Bite is put into the context of a routine, it is really good. As a stand alone trick like the way they put it on the video, it won't be as spectacular.

I also like his impromptu sealed can. It is no where near the level of "Healed And Sealed," but this is done with any un-opened can and the set-up is very, very minimal compared to "Healed and Sealed."

If I were to give the video a rating, I would say about a 7.

Ray Kosby is very well-known for his card work, but I doubt he'll receive much acclaim for his non-card work, which is a pity. But that just gives guys like me who see the creativity involved in some (not all) of the tricks on the tape a real little gem.

I own it and like it a lot. I'd give it a 7.

I was disappointed with this video simply because I thought ICM was brilliant. I had extreemly high exectations for this one and it didn't even come close. I was so disenchanted I never even gave it a second look. Perhaps I should some day.

If you've already seen ICM, this video is a 3.

I think this video is very good. The stuff here is definitely easier to do than some of his card stuff. The rubber band routine is awesome. I use The bite in my stage act as part of a whole apple routine. I use his handling 1-2-3-4 handling of the Goshman Sponge 4 all the time. (one of my favorite close-up tricks). and I do his backfire Matrix routine. This video and his cards video was all shot together. Richard Kaufman decided to split it into two videos though. I think there is a lot of creative and eye-popping magic here.

How about the coin stuff on there? Is it any good?
