Should I get Raven or this new Raven X2? Does RX2 do the same as R and a new effect or just a new effect?

I am satisfied with my original Raven, and have no desire to get the X2....yet. I haven't seen many good reviews on it, and not much publicity.

I'd pass on the X2, the only real difference is not worth the price difference. I prefer my original Raven (I have both, the X2 was a gift.)
...did you see that?

It all depends how fair you want to take it if ur fine with the orignal raven effect then why shell out money on the x2 I personaly am fine with my raven but its hard for others to tell ou wot to go for if we don't know wot you want it for so if you just wanna vanish a coin raven all the way

I've heard nothing but good things about the Raven but, I'm told it's time consuming to reset.

It's not that time consuming, really. Depending on how well it's originally placed on your person.

Its not that bad to reset, it depends totally what you want it for. I would first buy the raven, learn to use that properly, to use it very well takes more practice than people would let on, especiall to do the flip move convincingly to show your hands empty. Once you can use the Raven properly, then think about the X2, its slightly more difficult to use. The fundamental difference is that the Raven will vanish something, the X2 will vanish one thing and put another in its place. i.e. you can still make things vanish by vanishing one thing and not replacing anything, however, with that little bit of insight, you should be able to decide if it's for u.

I'v heard the X2 is too big. I'm satisfied with my Deluxe Raven Kit.

Yeah I am perfectly happy with my Raven. And I think that you can do the same things with a Raven as with an X2. But I never really read up on the X2. And I think it would be bulky. And I think the Raven in almost too bulky. Learn your ABC's before you write a book heh.

Do a search on the Café, I answered this exact question about 3-4 weeks ago.

I have a raven,and raven x2 never really liked either very much.

I've had about 30% of the people ask if its a magnet, maybe its just my handling.

I find a m5/pk magnet in my wrist works better, no setting problems, just wear
big sleeves and coins jump right to it...
