This looks great!

Pretty clear how this works, looks to be a very simple, practical gimmick. I don't see anyone being disappointed with this! Not sure how well the arrow will show up on a blue card in low lighting though.

Dunno, but IIRC blue is the colour that suits this type of gimmick best. I wonder if it’s controlled by weight / gravity, in that you release pressure after turning it and it drops.

I agree, the gimmick needs to be blue, just hoping it looks good in low light. As for weight, I doubt it, he's probably activating with his thumb. Not much movement needed as the gimmick only moves a slight bit to activate the change.

Received it. I can't believe they missed the boat on this... It was a guaranteed winner but the construction is just bad. The way I imagined it was built would work way better... This DOES use weight and because of that, the way it's constructed makes the gimmick glaringly obvious unless the lighting is extremely dim... I don't recommend this to anyone.

I assumed that was the method Patrick only because it’s a sans minds release and knowing they would’ve taken the easiest, cheapest option.

But that's the thing, their method compared to mine isn't cheaper or easier to make. Technically, theirs is slightly more complex. But it makes it useless.
