It is a very clever idea but the execution on the DVD was not what I could ask my spectators to watch. I have little doubt that there will be a spawning of great handlings and great ideas now that this idea is out there.

. . . the Wiz is very good, it is ufortunate that the video does not do justice, as the move is smooth, there is no need for the jerky move.

Put it on, load it up, then show the backs of your hands and hand wash as you show the front. It removes the 'quick jerky' movements and looks great. You can use it to hand wash with a coin AND a silk. You can display really slowly in a way you just could not do with a TT. Load a silk and palm a coin. hand wash, produce the silk, hand wash again and use the silk to produce the coin.

I agree. Dominic, Very well said.

So much can be achieved with a PK Ring along with its related accessories as they are made available/ invented. Try using a PK Ring on each hand (one band type and the other signet type) - Imagination will be the only limiting factor.

Dominic, thanks for swaying me on this one, after reading your post I got the Wiz back out again and "Yes", agreed that after working with this on the basis of hand washing, the handling improved tremendously. There are infinitely better ways to make use of the Wiz than what was taught.

So I acknowledge some value in the product now but my issue still stands that the DVD provided was embarassing to magic.

Okay, so it's not just me. One of the worst video demos I've ever seen!

Terrible video imo. I am not totally turned off by it but would like to see a slower,more natural positioning of the hands video.

If the ball bearing or mouse ball attracts to the pk ring, that is all I need to know. As long as the tv turns on and works, that is all my small infant brain can handle. I don't need to try to learn why it comes on. Cheers
