The Effect
A coin is visually borrowed from a spectator and signed. Then it will be levitated in the air and with a few techniques to prove to make your spectator to really believe what you are doing. Then you end in a blast by visually bedding the coin in mid air between your hands right infront of their eyes. The signed coin is now bent and can be given back to the spectators. The magicain and the coin can then be fully inspected...Clean...

Pricing
$20.00
It depends also on where you are buying it from and also the trasportaion fees...

Difficulty
(1=easy to do, 2=No sleights, but not so easy, 3=Some sleights used,
4=Advanced sleights used, 5=Suitable for experienced magicians only)

It gets a 3. The slights are easy to learn....and very easy to do.

Review
It gave my parents (my worst critics) a period of time where they really believed in miracles... Strangers around the streets thinks I have black magic :lol:

Overall

Advantages.

-Levitation is one of the most visual and unbelievable things...
-It is a levitation trick very suitable for any begginers who want to try levitation.
-It doesn't take much practice
-You can use something which belongs to the spectator's and return it, you are clean in the end. This can really add a kick into your magic..
-This is a close up magic, meaning you can do it right infront of the spectators faces.
-You give them a little gift in the end... The coin was signed then bent in one of the most impossible situations... (Add a little mentalism here and it really freaks people out!)
-Set up is small and comfortable to bring along with you the whole day.
no one will notice anything. Even in the day.
-Clothing doesn't affect the trick

Dis-AD

-You can't preform to many people at one time... Crowd control is very important...(Not mentioned much in the package)
- :!: Beware of Flying hands trying to grab the coin when you are performing half way...:!:
-You have to spend about 3~5 minutes on just set up....
-Although your set up can't be seen in the day, the trick is limited to where light is dim...The night is very suitable.
-Becasue a coin is small and will not be seen by many people far away.
It is suggested to be close up.
-You need 2~3 other props. other than this package. But they are fairly cheap and easy to find. You would want to stock up just a pair just incase you run out...(depends on how often you perform, props can't be reused most of the time..)

Overall this is a very great package. For all those who are interested in magic. It is great for those who wants to begin in the levitaion section. I would advise people not to start your shows with this though...and also try to act and make a story....it would really make people believe in miracles...

Sounds like a good effect, but my only question is: How do you visually borrow a coin??

Nope, I was just being smart.
Actually though, it seems like a little much to bend a coin, while levitating it. Almost like spectators would have a hard time focusing on one thing.
I feel like the creator just tried to jam a couple effects into one, but that's just my opinion.

Personally I think it works because it makes the spectators confused.. really confused about what you are using lol but thats also just my personal opinion

A not so blatent as usual plug here perhaps? I would like to think not but...

Anyway... Can you invisibly borrow a coing from a spectator? Or would this be stealing?
