I got mine this morning. Hammered it all day. Really pleased with this although after using a cig through years ago, I didn't doubt Bromleys work.
Thanks to the team for getting me this so quickly too.

How long will it last? Not sure.... really depends on how well you look after it. After playing with it for an afternoon, it feels like it is a lot stronger than it looks! It really is lush and flush. The best thing is.... strangely, when you push the pen through the card, it feels so, so good. I can't explain it, feels so smooth, like it really is going through the card and not a hole.

Peter Nardi is right, the precision on this thing is incredible.... I still have no idea exactly how it is made!?!?!

BUY it. A gorgeous little addition to ANY set.... will add a few seconds of magic at least, and most importantly, YOU WILL USE THIS, mainly because it's just so simple.

If you love cig through coin / cig through card, this is a winner.

Received mine this morning, not 'played' with it enough to do a review, however it is beautifully constructed. You cannot see the gaff! I had to push with my fingers to find it. It won't be seen by a spectator. As Max would say 'a thing of terrifying beauty' MUST be product of the year.

May the card be inspected by the audience after performing?

My wild guess would be, "no".

As far as the spec is concerned - the card is fully inspectable and they can take it away. Presentation is the key.

Can any pen go through the card?

Hi,

As a manufacturer and a creator myself, I believe I can work out how most effects are done (if the demo is true) but personally I do not feel the need to jump on here and prove to everyone how clever I am by exposing it.

For a creator, having one of your effects taken apart piece by piece on a forum is not very pleasant . Imagine performing at a party and you hear someone saying "yeah I can see you're impressed and enjoying the show BUT he's only doing a **** the Sharpie isn't really going through your card".

Now to me, this is exactly what happens here on the Café. People enjoy a trailer, get excited about an effect and then its openly exposed. Am I missing something ?

What is the point?

Peter

Ps the effect is design for a sharpie pen

Actually I think the opposite is true. I'd be surprised if any experienced performer watching the demo doesn't know the method. However, for the hobbyists or enthusiasts that may not know - and my guess is they're an important part of the market - I suspect that exposure reduces their likelihood of buying an item since it loses something of its mystery, even for them. So no, I don't think it generates sales at all.

Also, I've got nothing to do with this product or any other on the market, so your comment is neither apposite or even relevant.

Sorry if I've started something here, I just think showboating your knowledge( even if it is just uninformed guesswork on the method) is harmful, adolescent, and unprofessional.

I totally agree re: showboating knowledge. I like Alakazam and am a fan of PN. That having been said, the Café generates revenue for many producers.

To be fair, I was drinking when I said that and everyone was still in love with what you did.

How'd you sneak the dove under her dress?

Couldn't agree more with PN. Too much noise about method is totally unnecessary.

Also, if you want take all magic ad copy literally when a gimmick is concerned, you're in the wrong job.

Peter is one of the few creators I actually like to watch his demo performances. He has a nice persona and a very polished act.

Its off topic somewhat but someone said a few posts above that he loved Peter. Smile

Back to Mr. Nardi......he's one of the gifts to the art. A fantastic performer, creator and all around good egg.

On Sharpie Through Card, I love the moment in the trailer when the audience member pulls the Sharpie out. That makes it magic in their hands now.

I made a fair demo.....just buy STC and perform it!

OK, now back to the topic...

I noticed several people saying that they ordered the red or blue version, and I think someone said there's a combo version. I ordered from Penguin yesterday, and wasn't given a choice. Wonder what I'll get. I should know by Friday.
