Do you have to know how to solve a cube ? if this gets mixed up then what ? also can you solve it at the end of the routine like Mr.Penn does in his review with a few shakes ?
Thanks,
Jeffrey



For this routine, you will be in the situation where it can be solved instantly. Cubes will never be mixed up (the spectator does mix up one of it, the other could be placed on the table as a prediction OR it can be mixed behind the magician's back.)

And yes you can instant solve it like what David Penn did in the WPR video.

Is the cube in venom cube the same cube as in the Rubik's Dream 360 by Henry Harrius?

(Obviously with out the extra mods added for venom)

Emm, is venom cube not suitable for close-up performance??I tried it to my mom but she already see how it is done ?????


I own Venom Cube myself. In my opinion it's not suitable for "really up close and personal" meaning right up in the spectator's face, but from three to four feet distance there shouldn't be a problem; like taking the mixed-up cube from the spectator, step back (so everybody's able to see the magic that is about to happen) and then reveal the matching cubes.

How close were you when you did your close-up performance for your mom?


Yes, Vernon cube is target for stand up / general table magic to parlor, of course even stage, not micro distance. However these days many magicians misunderstand what 'close up' means and in their opinion it means it is less than a feet from their eyeball...

And thank you those who support my bro Henry Harrius on his release over the years, happy cube magic!

Venom Cube has my highest recommendation.

I've stayed away from cube effects completely during the last twenty years then a few months ago at the airport I had the opportunity to meet Henry and spend some time talking to him.

After that meeting, I thought long and hard about how I could introduce Venom Cube into my act and I have been truly surprised by the response I've had when performing this effect.

I have to say that the design, innovation and quality control of this product are of the highest order and I congratulate Henry on this release to our community.

Keep up the good work !

OK, I went ahead and bought Venom after seeing the reviews and no one thinks it will be a discounted item any time soon. I hope they are right and hope I am not going to kick myself for not waiting. Any how, WHAT A GEM!!
This thing is absolutely fantastic. If a dealer starts discounting this thing I can truly say they would be idiots. Very glad I decided not to wait. thank you all for the reviews.

No change, no bag, no movements in the back: one way to one Spectacles Specter who can / may be 1 meter from the magician.
Venom is very good and does the job perfectly that we ask him. Nothing to say about the explanation video, a good product !

I knew it I don't know who's the bigger idiot, vanishing INC or me. My instincts were telling me to wait. Now it won't be long before it's even cheaper. So much for the very long wait.

Don't beat yourself up man! We have all seen things go down in price over time and the opposite as well. I wish I had a 1985 Delorean to go back in time and not sell my Absolute Magic for a pittance compared to what it fetches today. I also wish I purchased Bulletproof, but I was unemployed at the time. Now, if someone sells it, I would have to give away my second born in order to get my hands on it. I think my second born and wife would kill me!

I also wish today me could go back in time to scolde past me in order to stop some purchases that has ended up in the dreaded magic drawer.

Hi. I’ve bought a venom cube and just waiting for it to come. I realise I will have to set up the gimmick with a stack of my preference. From what I can see on the trailer and what I’ve read in reviews the stacks, whilst impressive, strike me as very visual and Magical. I never owned Rubicon but I loved the solve behind the back that Gregory Wilson did. So can I achieve that with the stacks taught with this cube and if not can anyone suggest one that I should use?

You can use the stack taught in Rubicon or in Michael Murray’s The solution. Most stacks should allow you to solve the cube although I think some lend themselves better to a one handed solve than others.

I’ve had my venom cube for a few days now and I am a little torn. The moves are an absolute doddle compared to others but personally I think perfect square can withstand much closer scrutiny. Despite the move and the talk I would definitely prefer perfect square close up. Even right up close I struggle to pick out the perfect square gimmick. I can spot the venom cube from quite a distance. For stage I prefer the venom as the moves are so easy and don’t require cover. That said with perfect square the move is over in a second and then you are bullet proof.

Mark,

For goodness sake, you got to put down that Venom Cube and go make some more Chanderlopes. MindFX is out of stock. Smile

I am of course kidding (just in case anyone cannot tell). I heard a few others say the same thing about the Venom Cube in terms of close up scrutiny. I also saw footage of David Penn performing at a wedding on WPR. He wasn't that far from his spectators and they seemed just in awe.

I haven't played with the Venom Cube. I bought it with the thought of using it on stage and Rubiked close up.

Thanks Mark

I was thinking of using it to go into ‘the solution’ which would be killer. I’ll wait and see how I feel once it arrives I think.

Magic fingers I use it to go into the solution it is perfect for that. You can use venom fairly close but not right under their noses. I am still not sure whether I prefer this to Perfect square. This certainly has the advantage of not needing any cover or misdirection for the move. Perfect square on the other hand is far more bullet proof after the move. With PS I struggle to figure out which is the gimmick even when it is right under my nose. Also PS has a better final display with 3 matching sides being visible at the same time. With PS once you get used the the move it is invisible but there is talk. You can also handle the PS cube a lot more freely both before and after the move.
