The angle at which he's holding the card for the first change is SO natural, too!

Its the jumping back that I don't like, maybe just thinking like a magician.

Not for me thank you.

The ad copy with the video to promote is a deterrent not to buy!

Would of been better with just ad copy / gimmick and pdf/booklet with instructions and might of at least kept potential buyers interested,using their imagination how good it sounds and may look. Or make a better effort to with a decent promo vid.

Otherwise a bad promo vid. Sorry Smile

:-S

Other than not using jumbo index (which has more room for signing): what is the difference between this and Forgery by Glenn West?

Well, I got it and yes there are some angle issues, but here's what I thought

Creator: Brian Kennedy
Publisher: World Magic Shop
MSRP: $ 35
Skill Level: Intermediate
DVD Run time: 31 minutes

Type of effect:

Jumping ink, spectator's signature jumps back and forth between two cards.

Manufacturer's Write Up:

One of Ireland's leading creators - Brian Kennedy has finally released the work on his signature routine - HACKED The spectator clearly signs a playing card before their signature visually jumps onto a totally different card. Cause a spectator's signature to transfer from one card to another whilst it is held in their own hands!

The signature vanishes from the first card and appears on a completely different card - before making the return journey for a kicker ending!

DVD and custom gimmick included.

How accurate is the ad copy? 100%

What's in the box? DVD and 1 gimmick

Key points:

DVD teaches how to build the effect as well as use it.

How are the production values:

Moderate. The DVD has nice HD close up shots, but seated performance shots have a colored wash to them like they were not shot with enough light.

Is it well made:

The gimmick is well constructed.

Is it well taught:

Brian teaches you everything you need to know, and he even gives you 2 live performances in a real world setting.

My thoughts (what I personally liked/disliked):

I liked that this is highly visual with a great kicker ending, plus it's nice to have an effect that works with 2 spectator's instead of just one.

Storage? Does it "pack flat?"

The gimmick is a single gimmick that will fit easily into your deck, or fit snug in a card wallet.

How practical is this in the real world? Does it "play big?"

I think the visual of a spectator's signature leaping off the card and then back again is a real brain scratcher and has the potential to fry someone if performed correctly.

How original is this idea?

Of course thee are plenty of jumping ink and shifting ink effects and I think most of us are used to signatures jumping from the backs of cards, Brian has devised a great little miracle that allows the spectator to witness the signature jumping from the face of the card that adds a nice twist to this classic plot.

Overall score: 8/10

Thanks for the detailed review, David.

I want to trust your judgement but this effect just doesn't look practical enough for me.

I'll sit on the fence a little longer and wait for more reviews.

best,

Cole,
By coming across as a slimy used car salesman, you aren't doing yourself or your company any favors.
