Hey Platt, Iíve been meaning to reply to this. Sorry for the late reply. I can do this 50 times in a row as Iíve got over a decade of personal experience with this motion vanish. Iíll try and get a video up for you for your request of at least 10 times In a row. Unfortunately I will not be using the CATCH gimmick in the video because I feel my version not only predates it, but is all round better........for me. But I will absolutely be more than happy to get you a video ASAP and post it here. Or if youíd prefer, I could reach out to you in FB or email and show you. 😊 which ever one works for you my friend.

And does your version work with larger-sized coins (e.g. dollar-size coins) ? Smile

My bad goldeneye007. I completely spaced the first time you asked. I apologize. To be honest I have not tested the larger coins. The way I designed the gimmick was to address some of my favorite ideas/routines involving some of the smaller coins I used over the years. ( quarters, nickels, dimes, pennies ) I have a few dollar coins so Give me some time to test it out. If they donít work with what Iíve got I donít think it would be impossible to make some adjustments. Iíll have to get back to you on this.

Thanks Lonnie. To quote you "my version not only predates it, but is all around better."

I have no doubt a gimmick could exist that does the job. Perhaps that's your version. I can just say with near 100% certainty that "Catch" is not that gimmick. My request still stands.

I have had Catch for about 2 weeks now and am enthusiastic about the concept.
Basically so much is possible with it (coin through glass, through table, transpositions, switches, etc.) if it works.
What bothers me, however, is a detail of the gimmick.
The stop function is great and very well thought out, but the gimmick does not work reliably enough in terms of the "output".
I hope itís ok to say that too often your own skin stops the coin.
There is a need for optimization here.
If someone has a 3D printer, skills, time and of course the original product, I have a few ideas to make the gimmick perfect.
With a small change, it would work far better and more reliably.
Another recommendation I have is to put anti-slip rubber tape on top.

I was wondering why this looked so familiar. I actually release a version of this vanish through the magic estate in 2014. Coin through nose with Tyler. ( not a plug ) Joshua jay also has something from penguin way back with ďcornerĒ I believe. ( also uncredited ) The gimmick for Catch is too bulky for my liking. Thatís probably because Iím use to a much thinner gimmick ( that I created back in 2010 ) As for the restrictions on the Catch gimmick. The mouth is too wide IMO. Causing the coin to fall out when putting your arm down in a normal position. There is absolutely a way to prevent this from happening and you can move your arm freely without fear of the coin falling out also retrieving it at any time. I know. I know. My post may come off as a bit bias. It is. Because Iíve been performing this vanish for over 10 years and I have a lot of pride and experience with this Specific style of vanish.
The gimmick itself is pretty cool but, just prefer to have more control. Which is why Iím sticking to what Iíve been using.

Marcus Eddie has my upmost respect. The man has created so many necessary effects and added a great wealth of knowledge to our community. He also has the greatest smile 😊 in the magic industry.

Just my 2 cents


Would be great to see your gimmick, sounds interesting! Any links you can share?
