Do people use a PK Ring or do you require a stronger magnet to trigger the fake side?

I find the thumb tip works the best as it’s easier to find the sweet spot the quickest using one Gaz 😊

The Gift was featured on the most recent Penn & Teller Fool Us although they were used as production boxes rather than as prediction boxes which I think puts a lot of heat on the boxes this way.

I have used a PK and thumbtip. However, I found the best way for me is to hide a m@@@@@ inside a bow & 'label' that I have on top of the box, which can then be used accordingly.

Tom ladshaw has one,never used, at a reduced price on his used magic web site if you're looking to add it to your performance...
God's grace rocks! It makes a good cups and balls routine look pretty boring in comparison.

Angelo,

Will there be more of these in production?

I have to add my voice to the crowd who say that this is an incredible product.

I have added this as the climax to my opening routine where the box is being held by a member of the audience from the start and I've wrapped it in a lovely ribbon which not only looks great but also seems to make the box more impenetrable and impossible for the contents to be tampered with. Plus it's a nice moment of drama when the ribbon is untied before the box is opened.

I highly recommend it!

I don't know the answer to be honest but I am sure a dealer somewhere will have the odd one in stock.

The PK Ring has the advantage that you don't have to hide anything.
The handling is very simple.

That maybe the case Darko with your PK ring but mine are either not strong enough to operate the gimmicks or all the magnets in the gimmick need their polarity turning around . I don’t want to mess with my box in that way and I don’t wear rings anyway and I have never found one I like for that matter either . Furthermore I wouldn’t want to then keep it on for the rest of my set and keep getting my hand stuck to tables or keep bringing my hand out of my pocket with 3 of 4 UK 10ps stuck to it . Horses for courses but I have found a strong pin point magnet in a thumb tip far more accurate for this effect imho Gaz 😊

Yes nice handling Darko it must be my magnets need reversing , Angelo did mention this could happen depending on how they were originally inserted in the construction process . The thing is I am a left handed and I wouldn’t want a PK ring on my left hand as that would be my wedding ring finger . Nevertheless your demo looked great and I may re consider a) reversing my magnets and b) getting married again 😂 . Best wishes to all Gaz 😊 ps if anyone can direct to me to a really nice PK ring that would work well and even better if it doesn’t talk I would be grateful 😊

Yes, I love this method, but I cannot take credit for the idea - I got this from another member of the FB group. Search 'label' in the group search and Jonathan Keyton's post explaining this will come up. It really makes finding the sweet spot effortless. Also - I used a slightly larger, more powerful m@@@@t. Takes all the fuss out of it so you can concentrate on a great reveal.
