This company has advertised in Linking Ring since January---but the products just became available.

Slo-Motion --- a lifesaver or breath mint is held on a straw or coffee stirrer---it rotates forward & backward at your command.

Omega Exchange---has spec's folded card placed in the card box--immediately exchange with a folded blank face card placed in a "Tommy Wonder" like box.

Both Demos look very clean.

I've searched and not found any info on the Café---anyone purchased these?? Any reviews yet?

Gene B - thanks for the message!

I just visited the Phantom Magic website and watched the demo of SLOMOTION.
It looks fantastic! But also the price $59.95.

Does anybody know more about it or any reviews?

I tried to send an email to Phantom Magic but received it back with fatal errors.

Yes--My e-mail bounced back also---perhaps that's why we haven't heard too much about these products.

That is one high tech Lifesaver. For that price be very careful not to eat it by accident.

Looks like you can use breath mints also---probably if it will fit on a straw?

They had full page ads for a while with no web site or email access, then the web site was active but no info was available for a long time, they advertised a nut and bolt in their print ads, now that the web site is active, there is no sign of it, looks like a startup company who started too soon, I am interested in some items, but at this point, I won’t be the first to risk my money,

This is just a ripoff of Ultracinese. He probably buys those cheap units and then resells with this handling.

Both slomotion and Omega Exchange are available at Hocus Pocus now. Both demos look very impressive. I spoke to Paul Gross and he said you will be able to do slomotion right out of the box and the straw and lifesaver can be borrowed. For Omega Exchange the ad says for the professional performer but Paul said its within reach of a hobbyist and you should be able to perform likely within 1 hour of practice.

Here's the link to slomotion:

Both look nice. I like the lifesaver as it appears you don't have to death grip the straw like I had to do with the bolt to get ultracinese to work.

Why do you need refills for both products?

Sounds like batteries for slomotion. Not sure about card box.

Phantom Magic is having a grand opening sale for its Slomotion. Check it out at http://www.phantommagic.com/ProductDetai......01855190

Slomotion reminds me about ultrachinese. I owned ultrachinese. I performed ultrachinese and my spectators like it a lot. However, I don't like the set up so I rarely perform it.

Will Slomotion be liked ultrachinese in its set up? What kind of battery is used for it? This might be a good substitute for ultrachinse because it is much cheaper. If the set up is not like ultrachinese then I may recommend those to go for this.

It's cheaper by $5 at Hocus-Pocus.

Looks good for strolling but when I went to the web site the price listed was $132. that is one reason I go to Hocus-Pocus, plus I like dealing with Paul - I'm thinking about it.

I like that slomotion can apparently be performed in short sleeves. And from the demo, it didn't look like you even have to wear a watch.

I too have noticed that Phantom Magic keep fluctuating their prices. Not a very good thing to do in toady’s retail market.

Yesterday when I checked, Phantom Magic price was $39.95 whereas Hocus-Pocus was retailing at $34.95. And now today Phantom Magic brings the price at par with Hocus-Pocus. I agree, Hocus-Pocus is the way to your purchases. Paul is a very nice and kind man.
