Sorry to be revisiting Mental Frisbee...but I have an opportunity to purchase it at a ridiculously low price...but even at a ridiculously low price, I don't want to waste my time or money. Is anyone still using it and what is your brief opinion of it at the present. I work with small groups of 25-60. Is that a big enough group to effectively perform the routine? I'm willing to put in the work and effort to make it effective but I've read so many pros and cons about it, I'm just not sure. Any info would be appreciated.

I too just got this and am having trouble seeing it fir in with my banquet shows of 40-120 guests. I know the manuscript/notes say it will pay well for all audiences but children, but I can really only see this working at my college or maybe (depending on the wind) festival dates. I really haven't tried using them yet, this is just my initial impressions. I'd like to hear about your experiences Eric.

I got this some time ago and have not used it due to what I consider to be issues with the specs working out things due to the frisbee modifications.

Would love to hear from people who have performed this effect.

Simple answer really.

What was your reason for selling?

I hated it.

The method was far to easy to figure out if a spectator was only a little bit inqusitive.

Worst purhase I have ever made.

I don't usually give negative reviews, I alwasy try to give a good side and a bad siude to them but this was something I did not like at all.

Sorry to be really blunt but I felt ripped off when I saw how it was done.

Peace & Love

Did you not try to think of other ways to present the effect and have other outs instead of modifying the frisbees? I am still trying to save something of this effect so that I have not lost my money.

I suppose I could have, but then again why should I pay for an effect when I have to change the entire workings of it?

I know we should all adapt the effects we use to our own style and atletr the methods slghtly if we feel the need to but asking to alter the method on Mental Frisbe is like asking a Da Vinci to scrap his portrait of The Mona Lisa and draw a dodle of Mickey Mouse.

Its all each ot his own and I really felt ripped off.

(In fact when I sold the effect I mentioned that I hated it, it was a rip off and it was the worst pourchse I ever made - still the geezer who bought it off me wanted his money back because I "misled" him!)

((By the way it was sold to a magician friend of mine so no harm was done to our community)

Peace & Love

I agree that so much change should not be needed for an effect but equally I do not want to waste all of my hard earned cash.

The use of colour and six audience members I like a lot so I am still open to saving this purchase. Oh and that it packs down to nothing is also great.

How about a chair routine? Or Snakes Alive by Larry Becker?

Both use colours and predictions.

Yeah, but I have invested a LOT of money in this routine.

True.

I suppose all you can do is either sell it or work out a way to make the method a lot better.

I think discussing the method here would be too much exposure so either PM me or lets have a natter in inner thoughts!

I have it.

I use only the fresbee they're very nice.
Ok, it's a little bit expensive to just use the Fresbee but they're incredible, my dog like to catch them.

The ad copy has disappointment written all over it in my opinion.

Disappointed I decided not to give this away and put it in the bin. Do not buy this rubbish.

Well that has saved me a waste of money. I was going to buy it a while back but wasn't to sure (because of the ad copy). Glad I made the right choice not to, thanks guys, so glad I read this.
