Hi all,
Can it be done with half dollars. I understand the principle since I own the matchbox size version, but everywhere people are saying "using a quarter"

Thanks in advance
What your brain can imagine, you can create it. Dont wait, just do it.

You could do it with a half dollar. Jamie supplies a card box with a slit that would probably only fit a quarter but it wouldn't be hard to modify.
Although it's nice also to use a borrowed coin.
I actually just received this for Christmas and I'm lovin' it. Really well made prop.
FWIW, I've done it a couple times to family members and I've been using a small knife. Started with the knife just because I found it easier but I kind of like the routine that's evolved out of it and it's grown on me so I'm now thinking of using it on a more permanent basis.

A light-hearted presentation of this beautiful effect.
Not my finest hour, but I think the idea has some merit.

I have problem 'opening' it if you know what I mean... I tried everything, just can't get it 'reset'. Anyone has the same problem?

You need to read the entire thread. This has been discussed many times here. I'm sure you'll find an answer.

Bought mine about 3 years ago. I use this at almost every booking, so it probably gets 200 to 250 uses a year, still going strong. Although I gave it a rest last year as I had bad tennis elbow that made the reset very painful, I'm slowly using it more and more again now I found a non "wristy" way to reset.

Funny story.. I was doing this in a friend's house. Beautiful hard wood floor. Yup! I dropped it! Cracked the floor a little bit. So give you all a heads up. Don't drop it! This thing is made with quality. Nice and solid...

I had a drunken wedding guest snatch it off me and throw it in the air... it landed about 2cm from the foot of a girl in open toe shoes, could have been a nasty claim on the public liability insurance ! Since then I've been extra extra vigilant about audience management !

Very good Idea Stephen. This gives me Motivation to take it out of the Drawer and perform it again.

Thumbs UP!!!

Great product but I simply found it too heavy to lug around so it went into the drawer and later I sold it.

In a product with all pros , there's only this little con .

Carrying some weight on the body is a little sacrifice for getting a strong reaction . I like it , I'm still using IR a lot .

I have been waiting to buy this trick for a couple of years, had a windfall and now it's en route....hope it was worth the wait! I am looking to to combine it with a deck switch (Cold Case) for a great closer. Gonna need some serious hand strength to hold it for the length of a trick by the sound of things!!

Thanks
Stu

I use a vert clip on the back of my belt, makes it a lot easier and no pocket space used; https://www.vanishingincmagic.com/magic/......rd-clip/

Cold Case is designed to switch one un-boxed deck for another, and you need IR boxed of course so I think you may need to go a different route.
Most folks don't bother with a deck switch at all. In fact, I prefer it without as that makes more sense in the context of my routine. I want them to deduce that the the box is actually empty so the block is even more of a shock.
