When you remove the outer casing with the right hand, can you show this hand empty afterwards (apart from the outer casing of course)? If yes, then there is no suspicion of any switch in the spectator's mind...


David did flash his hand showing it empty (aside) from the case, near the end of the video. However, I have no clue if that's possible or if it was edited.


Would be good if Dave or Craig, or somedoby else could confirm that it is indeed possible or not...

I agree about how it looks a bit unnatural. Surely you would just use your fingers to remove the outer case? The spectators would not be sure exactly what happened but I think they would have an idea when it happened! Shame really as the idea is great and outstrips the card to wallet for ingenuity and no need to wear a jacket etc. Also edited out I suspect is the main move a M*****y C**d F**d. and I must have missed the ditch of the other card or was that edited out as well? How about a demo without the cars and the garage and instead an unedited performance from a spectators viewpoint?

Nothing beats The Light from Chris Congreave for me.
Ok, so its not transparent but it is very organic, and they can hold it from the start.

I like the look of it and am also a card to impossible location junkie, so have ordered, looking forward to receiving it, most items can be adapated with a bit of playing around with it to suit your own performance style

Looks pretty unnatural to me the way the fob is removed. Can the hand be shown at the end of the routine empty as its implied in the video or is this an edit? I think The Light by Chris Congreave is just as powerful, and it may not be visible for the entire routine, the lighter can be in the spectators hand so theres no need to change for me.

Those saying its unatural need to consider that a) we know there is a switch and b) its done right to camera, which I think is a pretty fair demo. In real life. Card will vanish or whatever, you'll point to fob, they react and in that moment you do the business. Looks good to me.

I agree. I thought the demo was VERY fair. I like the idea of carrying your "Lucky Card" or whatever, with your keys. You carry your keys anyway, so it the ultimate in pocket management.

When it comes to Penguin, I'll pick it up.

Trust me guys, this product is totally natural. The switch just flys by spectators.

I like The Light - I think it's great but I also love Fob. To be honest Fob is now something I carry around with me all the time. I have it on my keys along with Keymaster Reloaded and Ring Flight Revolution - I literally have a 15 minute act on my keyring. You can give the keys to the spectator from the beginning - they can hold the keys and the fob from the very beginning. In fact I have a handling where I draw attention to a picture of my son in the fob. I then hand them the keys and when they look at them later there is now a card there - kind of a transpo between a picture and a card.

The possibilities with this gimmick are endless. I also do a prediction routine, a confabulation and a killer card prediction thing. Basically if you like the idea of showing a card in a key fob and being able to switch it for a signed card - thus is for you.

By the way someone mentioned the fob looks cheap. Dave and WMS had this gimmick plastic moulded from the ground up specifically for this trick. It looks just like a regular key fob - you wouldn't want it to look different to what it does as that would make it less organic. I can tell you this though. The gimmick should last you a lifetime!

I know Dave is busy with gigs at the moment so if I can answer any questions I will try to help.

Thanks

Craig.

Craig, can you show your fob "empty" after the removal of the cap of the fob? And can THEY remove the card from the fob and look at it directly?

Hey Dorian

As soon as you have taken the cover off the fob the switch has taken place. At this point they could remove the card from the inner container if you want them to. A lot of the time I take the card out of the inner container with tweezers (which I carry with me for a coin routine) and hand them the tweezers with the card.

Regarding the cover there are numerous handling a discussed on the DVD. One of my favourite handlings allows you to show the fob cover empty as soon as it is taken off. Although to be honest from experience I can tell you the focus is on the card and not the cover.

My advise to anyone unsure about FOB is to wait for some reviews before purchasing. I know the product will be we'll received, anyone on the fence maybe it's best to wait for a review from someone that isn't best friends with the creator!!!!

Cameron has been polite so far. I suspect the temperature of his blood will be rising with every post made!

Thanks mate, I am loving being a father! Changes everything.

My friend Paul Green suggested I take a picture of him every week in the same position in a chair with the same background etc and do this every week for 18 years. Then use animation to morph it together. It should look amazing and make a great 18th birthday present if we both have the dedication to keep it up. We are managing it at the moment!!!

I go by gut feelings on things and I have such a great one about FOB.

Craig, does David Penn do the teaching on the DVD? I have his Executive Wallet and Hypno Aces and his thinking on routines, audience management, etc. is always gold. I got the Executive Wallet just to get the DVD, that's how good I think he is.

Yep Dave did the DVD, without me I might add!

I think when I turned up in a hoodie for his executive wallet DVD and he was in a suit that was the final
Straw! I think he thought his scruffy mate wouldn't fit in at a Porsche dealership where he filmed the explanations.

I have seen the DVD of course and its up to Dave's normal high standards!
