I AM curious, though. Stating the whole thing being completely hands off and being "the strongest trick in magic and mentalism" ... ok bro's, let's show what you got. IMO if you talk it up that much and want to keep up your reputation you should deliver...

This appears to be a miracle of the highest magnitude! I, for one, eagerly await the opportunity to gleefully give them some cash!

They weren't saying their trick is the strongest trick in magic and mentalism. They were saying that directly revealing what someone is thinking of is the strongest trick in magic and mentalism.

Ah. The good old advertising “I implied that but technically I didn’t say that”-trick. That’s a pity. Just like showing Stasis 360 in the trailer, implying it can be shown 360. Why overpromisevand underdeliver? Stasis was pretty good, but overpromising made it a disappointment for a good number of customers.I hope this will be different.

Well seems really inexpensive. Hmmm.

I’m on the sidelines awaiting solid multiple reviews.

Me too.

Let’s hope we don’t get ‘taken’ for a ride with this one.

I’m going to get good at the tricks I already know first. Still haven’t got around to doing that.

Hi,

Quick info :

I don't know about " miracle of the highest magnitude" but its very good. It's reminds me of something Scott Creasy would do. I believe Docc Hilford had a similar idea with an envelope.
I would describe it as an hand-off Shaxton .



PROS :

•You can make the gimmick yourself cheaply (DIY Time : 10 minutes, regular stationery needed)
• its hands off, the spectator is doing all the work (This is the attribute that sets it apart from predecessors)
• It improves (in my opinion) the shaxton envelope mainly because of the hand-off-ness.


CONS
• They cannot retrieve the card from the envelope after the trick (you can fix this after the performance)
• They cant write more than on the top quarter of the card. (with some re-engineering this could be more)


USES :

• Well just about any mentalism that requires someone writing a small piece of info on a card and sealing it. With some thinking it could be used for 4DT, a one-on-one Q&A, Phedon's Sybil (for the name part), pin code divination etc.
I would give it 8.5 /10 . I would keep this in my wallet for those times I don't have an impression device on me.

Thanks so much, Mr Dural! Can you tell us more about that "They could fill out the card a mile away and you'd still have the information"?

This does seem very intriguing. There's a small snippet in the trailer where they hand him the envelope stack. so they keep hold of their envelope at all times. seems interesting - a hands off shaxon that seems examin-able. It looks as if this is a shippable product... so they send props to make? I guess the envelopes which you tweak. I'd be interested to know if this can be made with other envelopes or if the ones supplied are somehow gaffed. If so, will refills be available? envelopes aren't particularly durable.

That part is true...They can write the info across the street but you only get the info after they have taken their envelope and put it in their pocket and have you the rest back, as per the demo (0:36 to :040)

Do not expect a real time impression like a M**DB**STER pad
