You guess is correct.

That would certainly have an impact on ones performance freedom. The hand can not be shown empty before & during the performance. And the prop needs to be ditched immediately after the performance.

This is an effect where one needs to show his hands cleanly & fairly to be absolutely empty.

Not a very clean alternative IMO.

Ultracinese is worth every penny, it's a simply awesome effect. If you don't want to be "wired from head to toe", it's a cinch to cut out the toe switch, and use the effect manually. Yes, you still need sleeves and a small unit attached to your belt. For me this is no problem.....and the effect is devastating to spectators. Noise is only an issue if you're performing in almost complete silence. Virtually any ambient noise will cover the sound.
I personally rate this as one of the finest releases in close-up magic for many years. Not for everyone, but certainly a winner, though I should mention it takes a fair bit of practise - most folks are unable to perform it straight out of the box.

From the link Ustaad posted:
"Just recently a magic inventor released a version of this effect (the spinning nut on bolt) and it was priced at several hundred dollars. Rightly so as what was supplied to the magician cost a great deal to manufacture."

$250 is not "several hundred dollars". Leonardo manufactured these himself and the parts are inexpensive so I don't see how it "cost a great deal to manufacture".

I would have been disappointed with this effect had I spent $250 on it. Thankfully, I got mine from The Browser's Den in Toronto for $49!

To find it, visit http://www.browsersden.ca, click on the catalogue link, and type "ultracinese" in the search box. Searching from the homepage won't work. I don't know how many they have in stock or how long it will be available at this price so don't sit on your hands if this is an effect on your wishlist.

I know Jeff, the owner of the shop, to be an honest man and so I'm confident that this isn't some knock off.

my opinion. I wear a $1,200 watch that I love dearly that won't allow me to use with this effect. Lame!


What's the problem between you watch and ultracinese?
Btw, you don't know anything about watch except the price right, do you !?

I have recently bought this second hand. I understand that there are rip offs flying around.", does anyone know how to tell a genuine one?

I think the original one used 2 batteries, the knock offs use 4, and are more powerful, but make more noise, they are also easier to use.
the original was knacky from memory

If you can solder, its easy to change the battery holder to work off 2 batteries instead of 4, which will slow it down, reduce noise, but make it knacky to use.
