This year I am buying all my tricks, and practicing hard, this is a nice little one!

One of the few things I actually like from Sansminds. Silent it is not, however. But unlike 90% of their stuff it works in the real world and you don't have to assemble it!

Remember Enigma from Nickolas knight I have to go look for it kinda the same finger gimmick .

Yep. I brought up the fact that I invented this about 25 years ago but these guys didn’t seem to care about honor and integrity.
And yes, I gave credit to Sanada for inspiration and had his blessings.
Too bad.

Hi everyone - I'm thinking getting that but was just wondering one thing: once you've done the vanish do Sandsminds cover how you end up clean?

With the Raven for example you can show both of your hands front and back after the vanish - once you vanish a coin here the heat will be on your hand where the SA is and people will most likely want to see it, so what happens then (I've seen people comment that it's better than the Raven and that you can do so many more things with it so trying to understand).

Thank you!

If you vanish visually yes - heat is on the other hand. But if you use it to vanish as closing a coin in fist, for example, you have time to ditch. Also if you do the full uncovered vanish, you can go south to a back pocket metal plate or mag or lap, or hidden pocket or body pocket/fold, etc.

I have also rigged a pull to the inside or underside of this with elastic in the sleeve and a bit of monofilament superglued to the gaff. There are times where this is the best solution and I had to get a second one to use it. It allows a brief showing of the open palm before a total vanish. I may use this 1 in 10 times though. The gaff itself as made works and provides the misdirection needed in the startling vanish to give you cover to go south. Hope this helps!

I was actually considering that! Thank you yes very clear - wasn't 100% sure before whether there was something like that already in the system but understood it's not the case. Might also use a topit just to show a visual vanish and then ditch.
Thanks that's helpful!

Kinda late to the party, but I just got the SA and I'm really enjoying learning how to use it. As some people have noted, it can be quite loud, and at first I was really disappointed as the extra m*****s that come with it make a loud thwacking sound when they hit the gimmick. But as I'm finding, the trick is to find just the right speed and distance from the object and it really is silent. Lightweight shim shells work really well with it. With the heavier stuff that makes the gimmick fall out of your hand, I'd recommend using some sort of tack or adhesive. If you have Event Horizon (similar-ish concept), Dannicus gives some good suggestions for tacks and adhesives in the tutorial.

You're never too late to a Magic effect party! There are guys just opening their first deck of cards today . . . Glad you like the SA! Bring on your thoughts and routines and help us all!
