Why don't you book Marcus Eddie to lecture at one of your near-by magic groups? Then you'll "catch" him performing it and maybe explaining it in person.

I’ve just seen this advertised on VanishingInc - can someone confirm that it’s not something you can use with dollar-size coins? Would a ring work?

Thanks!

Yeah, just saw the ad too, am wondering if it's an updated release or if it's different in any other way from the one discussed in Feb. 2020.

Just read the long blurb again and I had missed it the first time sorry - it does say you wouldn't even be able to vanish half dollars... probably is the same product as the Blackpool one!

That's exactly what I'm wondering. Plus if you look at the videos on the VI website, some of the vanishes look like they don't involve the t**t necessary for the original one to work. In the first one, the hand, wrist, and arm seem to be in a straight line the whole time. If that's not deceptive advertising, then I'm definitely intrigued.

PS: Just got word from VI: same effect/gimmick, but the instructional video is newer and longer (~35 minutes as opposed to ~12 minutes).

I read on VI someone asked the same question and they replied saying they added something to stop the noise.

According to VI,

"It isn't noisy at all. In fact, we added an element into the gimmick to ensure that it is quiet."

I am waiting for Catch to arrive but I have watched the explanation video from Vanishing Inc. Without giving anything away, it's not actually a case of VI having added an element to the gimmick to ensure it is quiet. It's more a case that VI has redesigned Marcus Eddie's original gimmick by taking something away. It's sound science which leads to less sound. That's all I can say. I don't think the sound is completely eliminated but there are ways to cover any small sound with some effects.

The video explanation is very good though the camera could possibly have had better close-ups at times. It looks like a very handy gimmick to have on you and use in all manner of situations, particularly in a casual situation to vanish and produce a coin.

I'm looking forward to playing around with this.

Is this something you can wear comfortably all day or a limited time while performing?

I think you could wear it all day...just watched some of the tutorial, it's a pretty good trick and will be fun to play with while learning

While practice is always required, how difficult is this to do?

From watching the tutorial, I would say this is at the easy end of the difficulty scale. Like using any gimmick, the skill will come with practice (which looks easy to do but requires some accuracy to work consistently), remembering how to hold one's hand and arm, and not being conscious of using a gimmick. The angles look good. The ones which are not are un-natural positions no one should be doing, so there's little problem there. This looks fun to use and should require minimal practice to achieve some impressive effects.
