Hey Jason, you ROCK!!
"The New York Papers," Mark Twain once said,"have long known that no large question is ever really settled until I have been consulted; it is the way they feel about it, and they show it by always sending to me when they get uneasy. "

Have had some time to play with this and compare it side by side with the original. You will be impressed with how well this is made. Being made of wood it has a solid feel. Unlike the original the center will not move until you push it. With the original you have to be careful as the center can slide on it's own when tilted. It takes a bit of force to push or "zag" the center. This is a good thing and I think adds to the illusion.

Another thing I really like is that the unit can stand upright on a table in either the closed or "zagged" position. It is slightly thicker than the original and has a perfectly flat bottom. The original will not stand up unsupported. I think this will allow for better displays when performing it at a table, also will look nice displayed upright on a shelf.

It comes with a golf pencil and aluminum bar. If you want to use a cigarette you will need to prepare one yourself. The instructions give some nice tips on doing that properly. You could obviously use the fake one that came with the original if you wanted. So far I am really liking the aluminum bar. Some interesting stories are possible with this and they provide a presentational hook to get you started. You can also use the "signature" idea with this using a dry erase marker. This gives it a neat "test conditions" feel. When using the bar or golf pencil you do need to be careful not to have anything rattle when you don't want it to. However a few trials will show this is not a big issue.

As with the previous Elite releases the packaging is the beautiful black box with classy graphics. The instruction booklet is great with many handling tips, some history and background on the effect. Everything feels first class.

Overall an impressive release that I think the 50 lucky purchasers will be very happy with. This will be a sought after item on the secondary market in future years.

Terrific review. I'm hoping to get mine on Monday.
Pay no attention to that man behind the curtain.

Eagerly waiting for mine in the mail. But I wouldn't use a Dry Erase marker: everyone knows that their signature can be fiddled with. Better to use a small round sticker which the spectator has already initialed.

Space is pretty limited Richard, using a sticker would be tricky. I think the fact that the spectator makes a mark and it never leaves thier sight will seal the deal.

Received mine today and its everything you guy's said it would be. Well done. Tough job making this one out of wood I tell you but you did it. The action is smooth and convincing just like the original which is all you can ask for.

Cant wait for the next item..

Congrats guys!

Received mine today. A beautiful job and works perfectly.

John: yes, space is limited, but fortunately there are stickers small enough to fit!

The idea of signing the center section comes from the Japanese magician Kunihiko Kiyotomo.

We will be making our decision on a second run very soon, because if we are going to do it, it must be done soon because we are already starting to work on the next release and time is limited. However if we do a second run, there will only be 50 more made bringing the entire total of 100 units built, and then that will be it. The trick will be retired from our line and no more will ever be made. Please contact us if you haven't done so already if you are interested in purchasing one from a second run, because the people on the list will be contacted first to alert them that the pre-order buttons are active on our site for purchase. We will also make secondary announcements here, and to our mailing list group. Like the first run, it will be a first come/first serve opportunity. Look for the announcement (either yes or no) in the next week or so.
