Any reviews the video for it does not look impressive like

Very positive review from Mickael Chatelain on his youtube channel. Maybe it's undergone some updates

I think this might be something different. That link is about a ring going into a can of beans

They are not same thing!
The mentioned thread talks about "Can-Tastic by Sam Lane" not "CanTastic by Maurizio Visconti ".

Wow well that's a lot of praise... and impressing Mickael must not be easy... not sure I'll get it though, only because I'm not sure I see a huge benefit over a non-gimmicked method but I think we all have to admit it does look very clean. My engineering background however makes me curious as to how that works so I might eventually pick it up... Smile

Seems to be out of stock everywhere... would love to see a review before the next batch come in, price is a bit steep to take a bet on it... also wonder if there would be a way to have the can in full view at first (I'm guessing not but maybe with some slight of hand?)

The poured drink doesn't look very fizzy.. like to see what a beer looks like.

If the audience is concerned about the fizziness of the liquid, you need to work on your presentation. lol. Using a solid colored cup (like a red solo cup) would resolve any concern around the carbonation of the liquid.

I think I'd ask the shop what they thought before taking the plunge.

I agree I doubt the audience/spectator would notice that... they just opened a can themselves, they’ll be far too amazed by finding the coin inside to notice anything else anyway?

Looks like a nice effect! The compromise seems to mostly be around the hands going (though momentarily) in the bag, the likely need for a jacket, and potentially the fresh gassy opening sound of the can.
I would be curious to hear more reviews as people receive their orders, it's sold out until mid April across the suppliers it seems.

it says you can use beer, beer has a head, it needs to be fizzy, hence why I said id like to see what it looks like with beer, I don't hve this, so I don't have a presentation to work on.... oh, and lol btw.

Oh right... I guess beer wouldn't be the best drink to use then... also really curious to hear more... I'm not too bothered about the hands having to go in the bag, you can always delay the vanish until you bring the can out of the bag and then pretend you vanish it at that moment, that would look invredibly clean...

I like but unfortunately after seeing the price, gulp not got the funds, perhaps when I get giging again.

Yes price is quite steep but the effect is really good... I was also wondering how it was sold out so quickly (given the price), they must have only made a few units because quite a few dealers carry it

Looks good but I think you have to have this ready ahead of time. Meaning it has to be ready to go in the bag. Won’t be able to carry it around. If it can be carried without worrying about spilling then I’m in.

I'm sure at the start of the routine the can is in a "open" position inside the bag. And then reaching into the bag, the performer places the object in the can and then closes it before bringing it out of the bag.

Yes, yes, that's also what I think. Regarding portability not sure but the gimmick seems relatively small so the question is how fast/easy is it to prepare the can.

Finally got mine. First comment is that it's DEFINITELY worth the price given what you receive. I think I'll add a small plastic bag in order to use it with a spectator's ring, I guess that should work. I'll also do a delayed vanish with a hankerchief or a ring box etc. in order to be able to introduce the can before the ring/coin apparently vanishes.

Difficult to get into specifics but it's very clever and very well made, I'm not surprised Mickael Chatelain liked it. It will take a few minutes to prepare the can (10-15 min I'd say? those are first thoughts I'll try very soon) but it's nothing very complicated. Last two comments: 1) you can't really let the spectator open the can however you open it VERY VERY cleanly (there is nothing to hide it's just better if the performer opens it given the method) and 2) spectators won't really be able to inspect the can once you've cut it open but I'm really not sure why they would want to inspect it, it's really shown VERY cleanly before you open it, from all sides (and I mean ALL sides, without any cover). And you can also show it relatively freely afterwards.

I'm definitely going to use this one, I've recently started to be obsessed with rings to impossible location Smile
