"eendagsvlieg"

He is referring to a mayfly.
They only last a few hours.

Also it could be a vague reference to the band "Mayfly", which only had a few hits.
(Implying this effect will only work on some, or intermittently.)

It is not necessarily MY opinion, but that is the translation I think he was going for. Smile
Carry on!

I purchased this because frankly I was fooled by the demo. I assumed there was a switch but the are great and I am not concerned about the inconsistencies that are bothering some of the posters.
I have however had trouble with the mechanics. The material to trigger the effect I find uncontrollable and now just with practice (I have not had it outside for a spin) the gimmick is partially torn. You are given the material to make another but will be writing to World Magic Shop to ask for another gimmick. The creator as you can see has been on the boards and has been helpful in PMs but either the trick is too finicky for my taste or certain details of the setup should be explained in greater detail. It is possible that I am one of the few with this problem but I thought it was fair to post my experience.
I have a general rule against buying gimmicked cards for just this reason but have had so much fun with Sharpie through card and envylope I thought I would give it a try. I don't expect thoses gimmicks to last forever either but they are reliable enough that I have already worked them extensively in the real world.

I had similar issues; i.e. trouble sorting the best DST to use (still haven't) and mine became slightly torn too. My th**** gave way very soon which was a bit of a surprise, and I wasn't being too aggressive with it, just practising. I still like it, but need to find the best materials to get it working consistently

Hey Nige Smile

Sorry for that break problem, hope you had fixed it Smile For the DST, wear it a little if it's new, it have to be sticky but not too much.

If you have any other problem, feel free to pm me Smile

I really like this moving hole, it gets great reactions Smile

For me the longer your set up with the gimmick, may be causing people problems with the tension & dst wearing quickly.

How I've been doing this is as the spectator signs the card I turn away & set the gimmick. I turn back around & say let's try something different & go into Alex's handling.

For me the gimmick lasts much longer & works all the time Smile

Great thinking Alex

Hope that helps Smile

Thanks Alex. As I say I really like the effect and the routine is good in my opinion

It tends to take me a while to get used to new bits of kit because I'm not a magician as such so don't work effects every day. I work in therapy and use strong effects with individuals and groups to challenge their self-limiting beliefs while making the process entertaining. It's hard for someone to stick rigidly to their current beliefs when they've just see something that is, to them, unbelievable

I'll certainly be using Flik very soon

IMO the best way is too leave out the DST completely... jus hold it in place.. more control..holes moves EXACTLY when you want it too...

...doing it this way I can’t really fault the gimmick nor the effect..

I use it , and it gets great reactions..

Can I perform both Agus' Void and Tom's Space Time effects using Alex's Flik gimmick?

Looks good. Now there are 3 new hole gimmicks on the market. Anyone who bought all 3 can share some insight?
