Review: At The Table Live Lecture by Paul Brook

Do I really have to say much? It’s Paul Brook. 141 minutes of him where he goes through miracles that can be done with merely a pen and your business cards. Get this product first, then read this review later HAHA! All jokes aside, this lecture is seriously gold, it has Paul’s view on the ever-rising trend of “prop-less mentalism” and interspersed in it are tips and advice from his work in both...[Read More]

Review: Kung Fu Foot by Héctor Mancha

This effect reminds me of slapstick movies such as Stephen Chow’s comedy movies. The effect is obviously inspired by Sword thru card as well as Kevin James’ Umbrella Thru Card. The basic routine is; you get a spectator to select a card, then you throw the deck into the air and you catch the selected card with your foot (socks on). I’d think this effect would be very entertaining if you’re d...[Read More]

Review: Nick Lewin’s Ultimate Microphone Holder

This is not a magic trick review, nor is it a new item. As the title suggests, it is a microphone holder. The pros may advise you to get a lavalier mic or a headset mic; and/or to include requirements for audio equipment in your technical rider/contract. And I totally agree. However, quality microphones are expensive, and not all venues will have top of the line sound equipment. I personally a...[Read More]

Review: Flash Gum by João Miranda and Julio Montoro

“Flash Gum” is the instant transformation of the cover of a packet of chewing gum into 3 playing cards. In effect, a spectator selects and remembers 3 cards. The 3 cards are lost in the deck. The magician makes a magical pass over the deck and the 3 cards vanish. The spectator can check every card in the deck to confirm that her 3 chosen cards have vanished. The performer claims that the 3 car...[Read More]

Review: Prevision by Peter Eggink

It is stated on the package of this product that this is “the open prediction with a kicker twist”. Here is the actual effect: A red deck is shown and taken out of its case. Included in the red deck is a blue backed card. This is a prediction card and it placed face downwards on the table without showing its face. The deck is shuffled and a card is chosen and the spectator assisting the perfor...[Read More]

Review: Influx by Tom Elderfield

“Influx” is a collection of effects with different flavour packets of gums. You receive a stack of paper-thin magnets and a DVD. In the DVD, the very innovative and young Tom Elderfield teaches you 9 distinct effects with different packets of gums. You get to see the performance first, and then how to construct the gimmicks and use them. You have to obtain your own packets of gums, depending on...[Read More]

Review: Linko (LifeSavers) by Ben Williams

Magic with everyday objects never fails to impress people, because that is what they expect of any magician. “Linko” falls into this category. “Linko” is magic with a packet of hole-mints, an ordinary object. This will leave an extraordinary magical experience with your audience! In effect, the performer displays a packet of Lifesavers hole-mints. He takes out 2 mints and puts them into the h...[Read More]

Review: iCharge 2.0 by Silver Wing

With smartphones the mainstay of the telecommunication industry, any magic involving these wonderful devices is considered the “in-thing” magic. iCharge 2.0 is the “in-thing” magic effect. It allows you to “magically” charge any borrowed smartphone without having to connect it to a charger or the electrical outlet. Imagine bringing along a smartphone charger connector (this connector can even ...[Read More]

Review: Cardio by Liam Montier

“Cardio” is the video version of Liam Montier’s e-book of the same name which was published some 7 years ago. This video contains many refinements over the written version. Essentially, “Cardio” contains 7 card tricks that do not use any gimmicked cards. You can perform all these effects with a borrowed deck of cards. They are not self-working effects. You need to know how to force a card and...[Read More]

Review: GOT CHANGE? by Jason Yu

SansMinds is known for producing effects with high visual impact. “Got Change” is a one such product. The performer takes out a bill from his wallet. The spectator can examine the bill and fold it into eighths. The performer holds the folded bill above his wallet. Using the wallet as a springboard, he drops the folded bill onto the wallet – the moment the bill touches the wallet, it disintegra...[Read More]

Review: Devil’s Mark by Alan Rorrison

The name of the effect, “Devil’s Mark”, suggests that the effect to the audience is going to frightening in nature. This is not the case. “Devil’s Mark” is a card revelation by means of a watermark in a borrowed bill. This is a “wow” effect to the audience because the bill is borrowed, and yet it has a watermark that can reveal the exact identity of a chosen card! Later on when the bill is lef...[Read More]

Review: Moneymorphosis by Dallas Fueston and Jason Bird

I have always been a fan of magic with money butterflies. Most of such products I have owned so far however, failed to meet the mark. There would always be an issue with it where if it had a really nice animation (flapping of wings), it couldn’t really fly in a nice way, or if it could fly, it couldn’t really flap its wings. Moneymorphosis on the other hand, seems to have successfully married the ...[Read More]
