I received a review copy of this and I think this is one of the best Gimmicked which hand methods out there.

There's no technology to worry about failing. It's VERY reliable. I think there is a small learning curve to be able to "read" the device accordingly. However once you understand the read of the device, it works perfectly.

One reason I prefer this to other which hand releases is that there is no really awkward "wrist under fist" moves like so many others. To me, the wrist (wearing a band) being under the fist is such a strange position. This eliminates that. This also eliminates any VERY strange and awkward "fist beside the ear" which occurs in Gauccid method.

The balls which are provided are very well made. They feel virtually identical and weigh virtually the same. The other gimmicks provided are top quality as well.

The method is simple, but that's part of the beauty. Rasmus has knocked it out of the park with this one. Great job!

Agree the gaucci ear position was very strange but you didn't have to use it that way. Sounds like this is a likely a clever build on the gaucci method which actually can be done nearly identical to this. Hopefully he's credited. Can this work with a properly gimmicked quarter or smaller?

Hopefully it can, the stronger the better for the gimmick in the spec hand so the 'signal' could be received with the performer further away

Gauci has been using a *****r**P method for quite sometime. Don't know if its the same, but sounds like it.
"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. "

I can't work out what words you censored. Please PM me and I'll clarify.

I'm thinking... is this only good for 1 on 1 situation due to the gimmick?

Looks like multiple specs from the video of Kurotsuke he shows...

You can use the which hand effect with more than one spectator but you 'pointing' action will have to be the same with everyone - in a way. But as soon as you know which one has it then you can present how you wish

I have an advance set and I really like it. Simpler is often better as I've learned over the years. The balls are all well matched in weight and size. I'll have to get them out to check transparency as I see someone asked about that. Didn't seem to be but then again I didn't hold them up to light or anything looking for that. I found the method to be easy to get down right after testing it a few times. There's also a three-item variation that really kills! I will definitely use this often.

Is this essentially the same method as Franklin's from his book? Not sure if this is original.

I currently use Scan 3D which is great, but I'm going to pick this up. Nice to have a low tech alternative.

It looks a lot like Gauci's new method he put out several years ago.

Will this still work if someone takes the ball and places it in their pocket?

It happens to me every now and then and it actually makes the effect even better. I use SS and a ring so there's always a way out.
