I've watched the tutorial and had one of those why did I not think of that moments.

If you like what you see you won't be disappointed.

Henry is a master at making cube gimmicks and this is not exception.

I couldnít pre-order this fast enough. I own most of the cube props and gimmicks out there including Perfect Square and Rubicon. Perfect square went strait into my cube drawer and Iíve been using rubicon for my matching sequence. After watching the instructional video for Venom, Iím even more excited about this. It really does look that clean, the actual move is shown a couple times in the trailer video, if you donít know what to look for itís almost invisible. I have a feeling this will be my go to for matching moving forward. I would even say this is my new favorite cube gimmick of all time. Canít wait to start working with it

I feel like the part of the trailer at 1:08 is super misleading and I assume it does NOT play that well. I think that part was faked to demonstrate what it would look like to a spectator. If Iím wrong.. Then magic might just be real 😂


Trust me when I say this, but what you see in the trailer is exactly how you'll be performing it. Zero weird moves, and everything is motivated. Bring out two cubes, hand one over for the spectator to mix freely, and you're all good to match them up. It may seem like it's too good to be true, but after seeing the product and learning its mechanics, it probably is.

You won't be disappointed. This will become the definitive method to generate the cube matching effect.

I emailed Henry with my order number and got the instructions, wow! Yeah Iím definitely excited for this. Just like Rubik 360 there is sticker setup, but this is imho the best matching effect with no moves to catch for the dirty work. Very clear instructions, reset is quick as well. I donít see this getting any better than it already is, itís great!

At risk of sounding like some ugly troll, I want to ask the following:

How long do we have to wait for a m******ized sh*ll to accommodate 56mm or even 55mm speed cubes -- you know, the kind used by folks who actually solve the doggone cubes?

How long before a sh*ll is modeled after GAN speedcubes, with circular center pieces? How about MOYU and others with rounded corner center pieces and rounded inward facing corner and edge pieces?

How long before we can order stickers appropriate for speedcube and sh*ll alike? And when, indeed, will suppliers of sh*lls stop treating sources of such stickers like highly classified state secrets? Indeed, when will they start to frankly admit the manufacturer and model number of the cube supplied with their sh*ll?

Just asking. I'm not saying anyone is dishonest, nor am I suggesting sh*lls aren't worth what they cost. But the questions detailed above have been bothering me for quite some time.

So in the segment I linked, thatís him doing it for real??? Thatís INSANE!

Edit: After watching back now because it was blowing my mind, I see it.. And itís GENIUS. But, I am a bit worried about everything lining up properly. I hope that isnít too much of an issue!

JC here. Lucky enough I have played with Venom Cube, and hell it looks good. All being magicians, I assume most of you guys have an idea of what the gimmick is, and so did I, but it still amazed me seeing Henry performing it in person. It is what a matching effect should look like. Direct and easy.

Speaking of easy, I can execute the move with my first try after knowing the principle of Venom Cube, no practice in prior. And the a-bit-too-detailed instructional video should be able to guide you through everything if the gimmick itself is not already easy enough to be used.

And the bonus. I have provided 3 of my favorite variations among the gear solve. I used to call the solves in different names. Henry also revisits and teaches his Recurring Nightmare Solve. So technically Venom Cube provides not 1 but a variety of bonus solves in it. I love my slow solve in particular. It convinces audiences that a solve can be done with no moves.

So, Venom Cube is able to convince me to perform a matching effect with gimmicks and not with a paper bag, and this is my rating to Venom Cube.

Do you have Rubicon and if so how does this compare in both simplicity and effect ?

Venom is less bulky, easier to do, more realistic and there is no weird move. You just can't compare it to Rubicon, those 2 are not playing in the same league Smile

Strange when I asked opinions between Rubicon and Perfect Square which I believe Venom is and updated version of most went with Rubicon so are there big differences between Venom compared with Rubicon ?

Note I'm genuinely interested I'm not trying to be troll thanks.

It is actually not applicable for comparison between Rubicon and Venom in terms of gimmick, because in reality they are different gimmicks in terms of construction, design; And the handling are totally different as shown in demo video Henry Harrius posted.
Most memorable moment - with Maestro Juan Tamariz & Consuelo Lorgia in FISM Busan 2018.
