I am writing a review which is not something I do regularly but had an opportunity to preview this new idea. Full transparency I did not pay for this. Background, I have been performing Mentalism for 12 years, and the last two years have been working at performing full time. As far as ZOOM performances go I have done about 50 shows which is relevant as this system is only workable virtually, not in person.

So what is the Z system? It is method of using your phone to either predict something or as a mindreading tool in an extremely very fair manner as far as the spectator is concerned. The video explains everything you need to do to set up your phone and provides a few routines in actual performance but once you set up and are ready to perform you will find that since this is a tool you really have no limitations to how to use it. It is easier to set up with an Android phone but there is explanation for IOS as well, I did not pay attention that well because I have an android phone.

PROS AND CONS

PROS - You can really predict anything you wish and the same with the mindreading. The Video instruction is clear and once you have it set up and undersatnd the concept and principle you really can set it up for many different routines involving predictions, influence, and mindreading. It is a clever and devious idea.

Cons - It uses a phone in a non organic way for me, it is great for impromptu situation or perhaps I may use it on a demo call for the predictions or influencing, but for mindreading I use paper and pen/marker and would not feel comfortable using my phone. Again its genius for predictions but I might just be too old schooled.

If you are comfortable using your phone to reveal a thought then this has everything for you and at a very fair price-point. In the right hands and performance it can be gold.

My review on the Z.System by Molim El Barch.

If you are the type of performing mentalist that likes phone style reveals,then the Z.System is an ingenious way of garnering and or predicting information from your targeted spectator. This can easily be done as a single (no assistants) performer as long as it is performed via virtual performing such as Zoom, or Facebook live.
The download needed for this effect is easily acquired for free for Android phone users through the Google Play Store and it is very easy to setup and use. You CAN use a like app for Apple phones, but it is not a free download for iPhone.
I see the potential of this effect and the uses really are left to your imagination.
But for live one one one performing, or a parlor setting, it would be hard to use unless you have some form of an assistant. But even with that in mind,, you really have a tool to do a mind bending effect with the right thought out routine.
The instruction video while easy to follow, the performance when watching seems to lack a punch, but if you look beyond the presentation given you will see the infinite possibilities this really does have and see the performance value limited only by your own imagination.
Overall I would rate The Z.System by Molim El Barch 3 1/2 out of 4 stars.

I too have had the opportunity to watch different performances of the Z System by Molim El Barch as well as an explanation. I was randomly selected to review it free of charge and I do not personally know Molim. When I first saw the demonstration my immediate reaction was that I thought that this was very clever and then when I saw more demonstrations I could see that this has endless possibilities. I admit I was fooled when first watching the video.

It is only for virtual performances. In no way could you do this other than that unless you have an assistant. It uses a mobile phone which is in full view all the time.

The set up is FREE for android users and a small cost for iphone users. It is easy to set up for android and a little more work for iphone. I agree that the performances shown are not super slick but you need to look beyond to the capabilities of this system.

For me the Pros are that it has endless possibilities and is FREE for my android phone and easy to set up.

For me the CONS are that I feel lay people will suspect that the phone does the work despite the fact that you do not touch it once you have isolated it (am I thinking like a magician?????)

Overall, if you do virtual shows then this will a very nice addition to your repertoire. I rate it 4 out of 5. It's good.

I picked the Z System up earlier this week and I thought it was genius! Yes, you can only use it in virtual shows, but it is like real mind reading. Whatever your spectator is thinking of, you can show on your phone as a prediction you made earlier. Your phone is in full view in a clear platic bag at all times. The only issue I had was in setting it up with my Samsung S20. I'm going to try with my S7 to see if that works better. So, it does require a bit of initial set up, but only one time. The method is hidden in plain sight....very clever Molim. You are only liited by your imagination. Another great effect from the mind of Molim El Barch.

I was luckily given a chance to review this product. At first I have to say that for product that is free to download for Android and not too expensive to download for Apple it is quite a good product. You are paying for knowledge not for an app. You can predict anything in real time and the prediction is appearing on your phone screen which has been in full View at all times.
extremely easy to set up and will take you no time to be able to use it once you watch the instructional videos which are very clear. If you have an assistant it can be performed live in person and maybe even cleaner 4 virtual shows as well.
I can see a lot of possibilities and using this and I think once you understand the concept there is an unlimited amount of effects you can create with it.
Nice work.

I also got the Z-system and I really like it. There are similar products in the market already but the great thing about this is that it's a system that once you set it up on your phone, the possibilities are literally limitless. The instructions are clear on the video and you get a few examples of the effects. Depending on your device you'll have to look for the best app but, as I said, once installed and ready, you can do anything you can imagine.

I agree with some of you that a written prediction is obviously stronger for the audience, since they know that a phone is a phone, but I think the z-system is a great tool if you create a really good presentation and maybe combining it with something else. You could perform this on a real live performance but it's been created especially for online shows. If you are a solo performer without off camera assistants, you can still do everything on your own. And if you have an assistant off camera it would be even cleaner.

There are other apps available to achieve similar effects but all of them have specific uses. The best thing about z-system is its versatility and how much you can do with it using your imagination.
Well done Molim!!

I have had the chance to review the Z-System by Molim El Barch. I was given a preview copy of the Z-System for a review. I did not purchase this effect.

Molim has an incredible prediction and mind reading system that is practical and ideally designed for use on virtual shows. This can be used in real life situations, but would need some limits and possibly an assistant to help.

The beauty of this system is that is what you get. This is a system. Once you learn the principals of the effect, you can turn around an apply the modus operandi in any mind reading situation. Truly, the sky is the limit. I like that the phone, where you have made your predication, is kept in display and on screen the entire time - it never leaves the spectator's sight. It truly seems impossible as the predication is made and recorder before it is revealed by the spectator.

Once you invest in the system, there are no additional costs.

The system works best with Android phones, but can be done on iPhones with some ingenuity and possibly a small expense.

The videos are concise and the system is explained fully. Molim also provides examples and explanations for multiple variations!

Overall, I would recommend the Z-system.
Great work Molim!
