For 5 bucks not bad. I would say the video and ad copy (as I remember it) is accurate.

I just bought it, the gimmick is very simple, and it does what the ad say. Very deceptive. He uses a given key chain, but any other of medium size could work as well.
However the trick requires certain background to make it invisible. Don't want to go into more details so I don't spoil Brad's creation.
This was an impulsive buy, if I would paid more attention most likely I would it pass.

But it is just $5, so it could work for you or give you ideas to modified the idea to your style.

A nice update on an effect of his I like: http://www.theory11.com/wire/brad-addams/signal/


They both look good (don't have Attachment - but *do* have SiGNAL) - but my issue is: was everything in that trailer necessary?

I don't want to come across as the grumpy ol' grandpa who doesn't get kids these days. But would it seriously be so difficult to just get one clean shot, without abrupt edits, of the entire effect? I'm aware certain effects would be ruined without cuts acting in part of misdirection (the camera sees everything and cannot be misdirected), that's not what I'm getting at - I'm just saying even when they *were* showing a 'full' performance, there was still unnecessary cuts in the middle of the performance. I'm assuming to try and safe guard the hand and/or finger placements.

But hey - I understand. Can't make money if people can figure out the secret, am-i-right? That's the important thing - not bettering and furthering magic, but the $$$s.

I'm fully aware who edited this, and with that knowledge I'm not surprised - I just think magic trailers lately are getting out of hand. Half of the time you don't even know what you're buying. Almost as if the companies are more interested in showing a cool flashy (noisy) trailer to trick you into buying a piece of magic - and less interested in creating thought out pieces of magic, presenting them fairly in a trailer, and sharing (selling) them to other magicians who want to use said magic.

Just seems to be too many one trick little eye-candy effects being sold for 10$ (or 5$ on sale), whereas they'd be much better suited for a compilation dvd or book.

So it says that you can examine the key afterwards. Can you examine the pants? Because I can't imagine a spectator NOT thinking that you just pushed the key through a hole in your pants.

Also, is the keychain and key flying into your hand, as seen around 20 seconds into the trailer, part of the effect?

There's nothing done to the pants so I'm sure you can

Put the key into your back pocket and have it appear on the keychain, less heat on the pants which are not gimmicked.

Yo everyone,

I have seen Brad do this trick for me and was totally fooled.
This effect is "BRADASS"! Smile

How easy can the clean up for the carabiner be managed?
As I suspect a b***k **t pr*****le here, do you need to s****h it out?

No y** d**'t. Not Ne**e**ar*.
Some think Houdini used trap doors in his act, but he was just going through a stage.
