I SO want this to be excellent. It would suit me very well.

It gets a good review in this week's WPR, but seeing as it's one of their products, it's not objective.

I just cannot believe that it's "fully examinable".

Watched trailer & I may be wrong but I think I have worked out how it works(if not a very workable method).

Won't be tipping it though & will get this for the reasons stated on the W.M.S. review.

Like it alot.

I can foresee many stolen wineglasses.

I think we are allowed to speculate on this forum?

Surely - it can ONLY involve a split in the card, somewhere? My worry is that spectators will conclude that as well, and will search and search until they find the flaw. After all, you are supposed to leave it with them: that's the name of the trick!

I would have to assume this is similar to the one linking card trick now being sold at ellusionist. I have it but have not made one up. Does some like a cool souvenir. Maybe after cursory inspection most people will be happy just to keep it. You may not be able to discover the secret without destroying it.

That was my thought as well, which leads me to the next obvious question of how much arts and crafts are needed to prepare the card?

You need to be able to split a card for starters.

"Split a card" was my 1st thought.

Looks pretty good ! But like most of this kind of trick, you can probably find the weak spot on the card...
I can't believe this can resist a scrutiny inspection. First thing I would do as spec point of view Smile

I would guess that's the same method like the O.C.L. from Ellusionist but because you tear only the center out of the card there will be a bigger "dirty" part as in the O.C.L.

As some of you, I wish this would be good, but why a square instead of circle. Why the weird hold of the card when slid on the stem. How to get perfect alignment when completed, as it is going over a stem of the glass.

Also looks like a DL, and they cut the video before beginning the fold, meaning there is some footage missing between removing the card from the deck to starting the fold.

I think it is to early to sing praises on this one, yet.

I agree there are cuts. I think the power in a trick like this if the final product (assuming its good). When I use Quantum Bender I hope people aren't looking at everything every second but at the end of the trick they have their signed bent quarter which is "impossible". Not everybody screams but most people keep the quarter. It's a trick with "legs"
If at the end of a "reasonable" procedure they have a signed examinable card (I know its not magic but maybe he has been creative in the prep) on wine glass I think it's a presentation piece that makes it's way around the restaurant, table, etc.

I think this may require arts and crafts with a touch of rubber cement.

For £25.00 lets have a look.
