Pegasus, wasn't that just a playing card version? I don't understand your comment? I don't need luck, I have nothing to do with this...

All the best,

I mean good luck using a magic gimmick that has been exposed worldwide by a famous magician, card or cash.


Sadly, you make a very good point. I guess Masuda is probably on a percentage of every Dynamo kit sold. Good for the bank balance, not so good for the integrity of his invention.

That could cause some embarrassment with this new release:

"Here's my incredible new RFID wallet..."
"No, it isn't! That's the plastic thing out of my kids magic set!"

Never once has it ever been mentioned whenever I have performed it .
You can say that about TTís and many many gaffed decks .
Itís how you use this props that matters and typically kids who get them in magic kits never use them to their full potential .
Certainly Lee Smiths routine you would never even think it was the same gaff being deployed anyway .
Itís a great effect and if you dismiss it you may as well dismiss marked decks , sven decks and countless other effects .
Not to mention DLís etc , of course it would be absurd to do so .
Most kids and parents donít even know what half the stuff does in these magic kits anyway and itís a 5 min wonder the second they have to actual practice something .
Best wishes Gaz 🙂

Not sure itís world-wide from the Dynamo set, maybe just the UK or possibly Europe too.
Dynamo is a virtual unknown in the USA among the general public so I donít think his magic sets were sold here although I could be wrong about that. But no one knows Dynamo here so I donít think his name would create many sales.
TBH, I donít think Iíve ever seen Dynamo perform and Iíve been into magic for decades. Possibly I may have seen him but I really donít know what he looks like. Iíve only heard of him by seeing his name mentioned here on the Cafť.

But it may have been exposed in other magic kits marketed here but not in the sets Iíve seen or purchased, although that is admittedly not all that many.

I perform cups and balls, linking rings, and a paddle trick (Turbo Stick)...all of which can be found in most magic kits aimed at beginners/children.
Why don't I give a @#$% that people might call me out for using tricks from a magic kit they gave their kids for Christmas???

Thatís absolutely fine, however, I do give a @&£# and always pay due diligence to ensure any effect I perform has not been part of a magic set or received 3000000 views on YouTube as a result of being easily searchable via keywords.

example - Ďmagic trick card turned upside downí

We have slowly become immune to the massive exposure. Imagine this scenario 10 years ago.

And everyone in your audience knows they are magic props, not everyday items. If you genuinely tried to pass off your linking rings as "large bracelets" and your turbo stick as "my fancy new credit card" it might prompt some unwanted sniggering at the back.

Yes but they also know your chop cup is a prop and so what .
Itís about entertainment and most people of course donít believe in real magic anyway .
Infact more people believe in Santa Claus than magic so I am sorry to spoil your illusion .
Great effects done well in an entertaining way is all that matters imo .
I watch the same films on several occasions , I know whatís going to happen but they are still very entertaining .
Linking rings all though not my thing are a classic of magic .
Have a great weekend Gaz 🙂

I'm in agreement with you. I've no idea why you keep replying as if I disagree.

They know it isn't real. They know it's a prop. Don't waste everyone's time trying to pretend it isn't a prop. Get on with Wowing them!

Is the US dollar one the same size as the card WOW ones?

I ask because I imagine there will be some wear and tear carrying this around in your pocket. Would be nice if I could use the originals as backup/replacement cases.
