The case looks very odd.
Optix not only provide a stronger vanish but also routine and impact.

I got one of these. Before I even got a chance to open it up and put it in the works, I got an email from Ellusionist of a *recall due to a problem with the charging unit*

Ok, so I got to chime in here.

Kyle created this like 5 years ago. I saw the several prototypes. Seeing it on video doesn’t do it justice. It looks so good in person. I prefer this to optic to be honest. This has been in the works with E for well over a year now. It’s not kyles fault that E did this whole stunt. It’s not like it happened, and the next day he emailed them and said “release this”. The whole charging issue isn’t Kyles doing, and shouldn’t reflect on him or the effect in anyway. It’s 100% Ellusionists fault. However, in the Facebook group, there is a fix that will allow the unit to charge with the current charger. This is a solution while customers await the replacement. Yes, that’s right! They are going to be replaced. So keep that in mind.

To say it’s just a “Dlite” is quite frankly, typical Café magicians doing what they do best. Complaining on the Café while not going out and actually performing.

Because they know for sure that you’ll never be able to sell it on.

Please check regularly if you are becoming the type of magician Jerry Seinfeld jokes about. (This applies to mentalists as well.)

Apparently there was a problem with the charger or charging. That's been fixed and in stock again. Anyone have it that can give a review. Thinking about getting it.

As someone else mentioned, does this come with routine in which the front of the phone is seen first?

But this of course would need you to have a phone that fits the case, or a similar looking case that fits your phone.

So I got this and would like to offer some answers, without giving anything away of course. First of all, I am not a fan of Ellusionist anymore, as their marketing goes definitely the wrong way. The advertising itsef has turned into pure clickbait or is often misleading and most of the latest products have a lot of issues, just as the "button" at the first Optix batch (that's been fixed only later) and now also with the first batch of this one.

So I was really planning not to buy anything there anymore. But I really really had to get this one, after seeing a lot of positive comments. I wanted 1 modern every day carry that was somehow cellphone related.

- It comes with 2 vanishes. 1 very very easy and in my opinion it is the better one.
- It comes with the main "routine" and a few additional routines and ideas. Most of them definitely work in the real world.
- It does not come with a routine showing the front, but why is that necessary? The customer sees the back with the logo and the light, who would suspect anything else than a real phone here? If you really think that is necessary, then pretend to press a few buttons first or leave it on the table for a while... or pretend to finish a call or whatever... no one will ever suspect it is anything else than phone.
- In my opinion the case does not look odd. I mean there are people using all kinds of material - I have seen gold, pelt and whatever, so why would this look odd? But they also show you how to use another case, if needed. Though obviously it is not gonna work with every case.
- In my opinion Optix has a better "WTF" moment, as the phone disappears while holding it. Here you have some kind of delayed vanish, which I also really really like.
- The only negative thing is, that the "thing" you have to ditch is a bit bulky. But honestly - all focus should be on the case anyway.

In my opinino this is an 8/10.

Ellusionist... weren't they the guys that recently blocked their complete library and shut out all their customers without any warning? So that everybody here was worried they were bankrupt and every customer had lost every video they purchased over the years? And then it turned out to be a publicity stunt because they wanted to draw attention to the fact that they changed the background color of their website (or something incredibly stupid like that)?


Yes that’s them but all is forgotten now that they have a new tick on the market

At the bargain price of just $40!

Can someone who purchased it tell me do the instructions show up in your streaming library and is there an option to download?

I bought Lloyd Barnes Gaff System from Ellusionist and you have to go to another site to view the instructions and no option to download them..

Thanks. I was afraid of that. How hard would it be to add it to our streaming library?

After they went dark and came back most of my streaming access was returned but a few of the items I purchased from them that didn’t they just sent me a link to view them when I asked to have them returned to my streaming library.

Really disappointed but expected,

Is the beginning of the trick, where the phone is shown edited out of the trailer? or is this a trick where a phone the spectator never sees vanishes?

Spectator sees the back which appears to look like a phone in a phone case with logo and flashlight. I've seen many people in public on their phones and many times not seeing the face of their phone. Just like what was mentioned in an earlier post, you can pretend to be pushing buttons or swiping up down or across to give the impression you are using your phone before going into the trick.

Yep, but if someone removed the phone from their ear and showed me an empty case I would think they were pretending to have a phone, not that it vanished.
