David was forced to mention it on his Facebook feed because I was about to break the story here.

I like to bring exclusive news to the Café. There's a list as long as my arm of things I've brought here, from Sankey's new online venture (and tattoo!) and Matt Wright's new wallet to the WPR 'debacle' and Mark Leveridge's hold-out being four good examples.

If people like Andrew Zuber (who I believe is jealous of my journalisitc flair) don't want me to bring this type of content to the Café then I'll just share it with a close group of friends in future.

Thank you Jamie, the Café would be a boring place without your contribution.

What I like best about Jamie Ferguson is how humble and grounded in reality he is.

Since the beginning of the year I have felt like something was missing from my life. Three weeks later I know what it is.....You guys!

Now that you've both responded to one of my posts I feel whole again.

One question FrenchDrop, where's your blue laughing smilie gone? Without it you seem naked.

Oh I'm sure John Sheets has a few laying around that he'd sell ya! But I'd just wait for his newest version. He's currently in a moving transition, but should be back on track soon.

Like most, not sure why this upgrade is needed?
during the handling, you don't put the cap on the non-nib end anyway, you hold it in your hand whilst they sign.

My only comment on the current v2 cap, is that without the 'handle' part, it does not look like a cap.
Adding that would be better than being able to fit it onto the non-nib end.

I reckon Coinvexed 3 uses 2 pens and no change. Which is a the next logical step in the evolution of this method.

After years of working with both the QB2 and the CV2 my preference is the QB2. I use it to bend 1p, 5p or 20p coins with no problem. 10p's require a little more force so I tend to not bend these.

But after years of performing the coin-bend both signed and un-signed I'm starting to think that all this signing of coins is unnecessary. Lay people still react to the effect the same way.

The trailer is really subpar as it only shows the reactions of the spectators which I get anyway. I think QB2 is the way to go.

Are you being sarcastic? Why would you be holding two sharpies?
It's amazing, people will criticize you for "biting the hand that feeds you," while they're busy praising the hand that beats them.

I never liked the "hand full of change" aspect. It SOUNDS like a good idea for camouflaging the gimmick, but in reality it's just an odd thing to have in your hand when you take back their coin. Why would you bring that hand, with a pile of change, back to handle the coin which will be bent? Why wouldn't you just pocket the change?

If you DO "pocket" the change, just to palm it back out, hidden, then why camouflage the gimmick like that at all?

The sharpie makes more sense that you might sill be holding it, but handful of change, no so much.

I could see this making sense if it were something that came out before QB, but I think it is obsolete when one looks at QB. Though I think the gimmicking of a cap could be progress, but not if it's used in conjunction with another gimmick in a handful of change.

That brings up the other big selling point of QB, it is self contained. Not two separate pieces. Although it sounds like the Coinvexed Sharpie can be used to actually writ with, which is a bit of a plus over QB's Sharpie.

Can this one bend 50 cent euros?
The other euro coins break when bending them.

If this one is upgraded so it can bend heavy metals like a 50 cent euro, I am interested.

I don't know - it's hard to imagine this being a drastic improvement over the QB2.

QB3 by John Sheets is in the works and due soon - to me that would be the ticket to ride.

I guess the debates over which bender is best will always keep raging.

David Penn comes up with some cool stuff so I wish him good luck with this release, but as the old Taryton smoking ad goes - "I would rather fight than switch"
