You show your hands to be 'empty' front and back at the start, the method of doing that is taught on the Raven video/DVD, and at the end you really are clean.

I must of missed something here?

How is this possible?


I don't have the Raven DVD but I found it fairly easy to work out with a bit of thought. You are kind of clean at the end. as long as you don't have something dangling from your sleeve.

Advantages:
-You can show your hands empty before and after the effect
- The vanish is very visible and takes less than a second
-Can be performed short sleeved
-After it has been set the first time you can reset in a second infront of the audience
Disadvantages:
-You must where a shirt
-The gimmick is somewhat uncomfterable and is not something that you can always have prepared
-You need about a minute to set up

Is there anyone has get The Raven X2 ? It seems to have more effects than the normal Raven. But I don't have it.

You're not 'clean' as such at the start, but rather, if you think about back and front palming, you can hide the gimmick. Kinda like fickle nickel.
