Agree with Pegasus,. Note the promo doesn’t show it floating “all around your body.” Looks like traditional Fearson hookup with a top rather than cigarette.

Yes, that's what I said above, and I also think it is over doing the float. Above the hand and back down should be more than enough. Otherwise, in my opinion, it looks like the cheap UFO card (hummer card) thing that has been way over used....as a toy "trick".

Looks good and Adam is a good teacher who usually releases and shares practical effects.

One of the best close-up levitations was Daniel Cros floating seahorse. This is also be a big winner. Would love to see the full routine.

I'm not necessarily a fan of IT, but I like Adam Wilbur's effects, and he definitely is a very good teacher, very detailed and thorough. I also like the disappearance/reappearance ending.
I was also pretty happy to see this available again, so immediately bought it.

I think floating just above the hand does it, tops!

Exactly. The WORST thing you can do is a slow levitation from hand to hand. Just levitating it a TINY bit so they’re not even sure of what they’re seeing is the way to go. Then do it one more time so they see yes it did levitate. Great trick. The vanish looks weird as hell too.

Interesting premise but I doubt I’ll ever spend money on anything Adam Wilbur puts out again after this. Read my review on page three.

Happy to read reviews and see if it's really more practical than other levitations on the market as he seems to say...

I posted a review of this on my YouTube channel. I’ve never been into levitation systems/effects as IT is not my favorite thing in the world but the instructions are superb and if someone wants to get into IT or levitations this is an excellent place to begin or further your existing knowledge!

I love the storyline this offers, although I do wish the bottle cap was more aged, can it be switched out for another?
Does the IT come ready to go out of the box?

Oh, what am I thinking, me and IT just don’t get along. My eyesight is too poor and my touch isn’t sensitive enough. I swore I’d never try it again but I can be a glutton for punishment.

Can’t figure out how to get to the tutorial. I’ve typed in the address five times and nothing. Any thoughts?

I purchased this and I'm waiting to get it. I'll review after it comes in. I agree with one of the earlier posts that with this, not only is less probably more, but it seems to me that it lends itself to having it seem like spins up the palm and onto the tip of a finger. I think that would be even more magical than levitation.

Nothing like a review from some kid who’s been in magic for a few years.

We don't know how old he is, so there's no evidence to call him a kid (even if he is younger than you).
Also just because you haven't heard of him and his review channel, doesn't mean he hasn't been doing magic for years. Be nice.
There will always be someone better at some things than you are. There will always be someone worse at some things than you are. All you can really do in the end, is aim to be better than you were yesterday.

I ordered this today. I normally do not do any IT work and I will keep this at an extreme minimum maybe just causing it to float above my hand and then having it land again I will then do a vanish and have it reappear in the Box. I really like the look on this the box and the top at least on video look very nice and I'm looking forward to receiving this and will post a review.

Good magic to all,

Can't wait Eric! Smile Really wonder how practical it is to get into the levitating part...
