The feedback that I am hearing about this effect is that it is fairly simple to get down. The main sleight is one that most magicians know or should know.

That's right Ted. It's not a hard slieght to learn, and most will be familiar with it. It's more about timing. Jonathan said something about tapping you hand three times, however, the move has nothing to do with that. It's more about proper positioning of the object and bottle. The DVD does do a great job in explaining it. It took me a bit to get the timing, and find the right positioning, but once you learn it, it's like riding a bike.

Haha yea I'm not 100% if that's what he ment but I will assume. if not its not a big deal I would still love to hear his ideas. but yes this is a very familiar move (if it isn't its about time to get familiar with it) and it is like riding a bike. also the tips on the dvd with placement and such will help greatly

I'm pretty sure I know what's more or less going on here. And I like it. But it makes me wonder how practical is this to do (even with a penny) with the standard soda and water bottles that are typically found? Or is this pretty much meant just for sports bottle drinks? Thanks!

I've made a gimmick for a V8 bottle, and I have made a gimmick for a regular water bottle( around the same size bottle neck as a pop bottle. I am able to make it appear as though I penetrate a dime into the bottle. Smaller bottles have limited my imagination as far as what onjects to magically make appear inside the capped bottle. I notice that many people do walk around drinking those Gatorade's, or water bottles, but I don't see why you can't practice with any size really. I'd be leary of using a milk jug, but I suppose someone could do it if they really wanted to.

How long will it take to construct the gimmick, and will you nee a different gimmick if you want to do something other than a coin?

It comes with your first gimmick so you can see how it is made. Chris also tells you how you can make your own from an ordinary object, which is really easy to make. You can make up several of them, depending on how many bottle types you want to prepare for. Once you make a gimmick, it is very strong and durable. I don't see why you would ever need to replace it.

It took me about 2 minutes top to make a gimmick, but I was taking my time making it. There is nothing really to worry about as far as the gimmick goes. Once you have your gimmick made for the "type" of bottle you will use, you can use it for coins, pens, keys, rings, batteries, plus anything else you can fit into the bottle. You are not limited to just a coin. You can even use borrowed objects from a spectator.

I've performed it a few times to several people, and although I get different reactions, all of their reactions are really fun to watch.

I've been asked a couple of times by PM the same questions so I thought I would also post my comments here for everyone.

As far as practice goes, that will depend on the indavidual. It took me a bit of practice, but nothing bone crushing! It's a simple move that takes a bit of getting used to. It's a move that I know most are already familiar with.

The gimmick. The gimmick has nothing to do with the method. I realize it's being called a gimmick, but that's because there is no other name to call it without revealing what it is. It is a slightly altered object to help in the dramatics of the effects.

So, to sum it up. The gimmick does not make this a self working trick. The gimmick is not part of the method. It's a regular object has been slightly altered but that's it. The bottle is not gimmicked, and you can borrow a bottle from someone.

I hope that helps those who are sitting on the fence. Smile

Seriously, I highly recommend this!

Practice is always a good thing, and should never deter anyone from purchasing an effect, especially one that is so visually stunning. Even though the amount of practice needed all depends on the indavidual, I can honestly say it's not hard to learn.

Hey Chris, I'm not sure what devious method you put on this DVD, I assumed it was the same as what I was doing, but after reading Luke Dancy's review, I'm sure it's different. I don't use any gimmick for one thing. To anyone else reading this, please ignore the cryptic method I mentioned earlier, it's not necessary. The way I was doing this trick was making it more difficult than it need be. I changed some things and the trick is now extremely easy to do, and the penetration looks much better now. One thing I really didn't like about the trick was how hard I had to hit the coin. That's no problem when the coin is penetrating a thick Gatorade bottle, but seems excessive when using a flimsy water bottle, which is what I usually practice with. Now, I only lightly tap the coin near the bottom of the bottle and leave the bottle touching the hand, the coin is still in the same spot on the hand, but it is now inside the bottle, the bottle can be immediately handed out. I'm using a Dasani 20 ounce water bottle, and a quarter and it's very easy to do every time. I actually think that the details of what I'm doing now are different enough so that I could put it on a multi-effect DVD, but that's at least a year off, and this thread is about Chris's version, which I can't comment on, as I don't know the details of what he's doing, I can only say that it looks great.

I have this and really like it. I would say it is my new favorite coin (other other objects) in bottle. Very clever. I think it elevates the coin in bottle from merely a gimmick to a skill. While it does involve a gimmick, imo it is more about a skill. not hard to learn, but valuable. I also like the fact that Chris shows how the gimmick is made. I think this is great as one can make gimmicks for a variety of bottles and perform the effect with a borrowed bottle. highly recommended!
