I just ordered it. Looks good to me. A bit high, but I've paid more for things that didn't pan out.

I was in Vegas a few weeks ago, and got to see Chris shooting/demoing this... I really like the sugar packet version; lots of subtle touches that REALLY sell the illusion.

Awesome, can't wait to get mine.

My thoughts echo what a lot of you are saying. I agree with ad copy that it seems like a great trick to do when someone wants to "see something". On other hand, 60 bucks seems a little steep for a just "see something" one and done trick. On third hand, if it is well made and will hold up to a few seconds of close scrutiny it would probably be worth the 60 bucks if you planned on practicing it enough to make it all smooth and natural. decisions decsions.....

Yes, the switch at the end is very deceptive.

I agree with everyone , the effect look great, easy to do and it's always with you, but I still feel $60.00 is a lot for this, or am I just being cheap, I know you can't put a price on a good effect, and that may be the case here,


It might be, but I think I agree with you Dave. I am guessing that because the key is immediately examinable after the effect and if it cannot be figured out- this may be worth it. But boy- Key thru Bill- $60.00. hmmm.

Figured out? The gimmick is added and taken away under natural moves. Key does not appear gimmick and I doubt most would not figure it out. Quality construction? I hope Smile

I still occasionally use my 'Perfect Pen' by John Cornelius which works fine on an adult audience, however I have noticed a tendency recently that some younger, magic savvy spectators tip the method because they think they know how it works and some actually own a similar, usually inferior gimmick.

Actually none of my specs so far has seen the Cornelius version of the gimmick so I can still get away with handing out the pen, as long as they don't play with it for too long.

I wonder if doing this with the 'Ignition' key may prove less likely to be exposed because if I'm right about how this is done then they could play with the key all they like.

Tempted to get this and do a combo of 'Ignition' then 'Perfect Pen' whilst they're still inspecting the key.

Looks a great deal better than The Key by Andrew Mayne. I think the design is foolproof and the handling looks pretty easy to perfect.

Agree- the key looks really nice. May have to get this one.

Sammy, I have a co-worker who has a Honda Fit and it doesn't have an unlock button built into the key. Some economy cars because of the price don't have that feature. In general I would say most do.

I would say that most people still don't have that feature on their keys. But I could see where if you had a car less than five years old, that would be the case. But I'm guessing that's not the majority.

Me.............I have plenty of keys on my person that this will work for. I just hope you can have it on a key chain and then take it off and do the trick. If so I will be getting this.

So many are concerned about the key ? it's just a key to those you are performing for, nothing more, there are other keys that are on the same key chain and no one will question those as well.

The key looks like most car keys here in the UK, with so many different types of key out there these days I see no problems whatsoever.

I have had many rental cars with the large fob without any buttons for locks.

Does not look suspicious at all to me.

Purchased and received Ignition,those concerned about quality of the gimmick need not worry. Very well made and will last. Small inconsistency with key which will probably go unnoticed by most specs but then again I like perfection. Key can be attached to your normal keys and no one will suspect anything. This is a great walk around trick easy to do. The sugar packet handling is the way to go, really sales the idea that you actually have put a hole through the packet. I know that $60.00 seems a little steep for this type of trick but if its something that you will be able to do at the drop of a hat and its always with you, then its worth it.
