Review: Finger Flasher (Natural/ Black) by Jeremy Bracco

As a magician, if you can create a special something to signal the moment your magic happens, you can increase the impact of your performance. Performers have used special hand gestures, or a magic wand, for this purpose. The most visual form is a short burst of fire. This can be accomplished by a finger flasher. The Bracco finger flasher is a well-designed prop. Unlike the cheaper ...[Read More]

Review: Ari Soroka’s The Red Carpet

The Red Carpet was originally conceived by Ari Soroka more than 30 years ago. Some 10 years later, Jason Palter got the rights from Ari to manufacture and release this effect through his Paltergeist Unlimited. This effect is not to be confused by another effect called “Red Carpet” by Black Rabbit Magic. Although it involves celebrities, the effect is quite different. In this effect, a lady spe...[Read More]

Review: Canes MAGIC – The Real Secrets DVD by Fabien Solaz

The title tells us that this DVD is about how to perform magic with canes. Unfortunately, there is no breakdown on what are being covered by this subject. The caption in the title states “The Real Secrets” – but we do not have the definition of “real”. The write-up on the back cover of the DVD says “every secret of this …. prop will be revealed to you.” This suggests it is a complete treatise ...[Read More]

Review: MYC – Mark Young Change

The MYC is a nice visual bill change. What you see in the trailer/ad copy is accurate. You get downloadable instructions, LEFT & RIGHT (mirrored) versions. Instructions are short & sweet (11mins) but could have been better, for example, using real bills instead of colored paper to show the work. Took me a few tries to orientate the bills correctly. Initially I found it quite easy to flash (there i...[Read More]

Review: Any Shuffled Deck – Self-Working Impromptu Miracles by Big Blind Media

Many magicians are weary of self-working card magic. They feel that spectators can easily figure out the method. Also, since the majority are based on mathematical principles, the performance tends to be long-winded and draggy. Many of them require special arrangement or stacking of the cards, and cannot be performed impromptu with a borrowed deck of cards. Well, they have not seen cleverly co...[Read More]
