The Mogtrix by Andy Hunter

Where to buy
Nothing Up My Sleeve £16.95 (Although I see you can get it for £8 at the moment!!).
There is also a video demo here.

The Advertising.
This is without a doubt the quickest, slickest and most eye-popping coin matrix routine you can perform.


Difficulty. 2-3/5
1=Even I can do it, 2=No sleights, but not so easy, 3=Some sleights used,
4=Advanced sleights used, 5=Suitable for experienced magicians only)

Although there are no sleights as such, there are some very easy moves that need to be practiced.

Review.
Before I start I should mention that in the past I have not really done much coin magic, but nevertheless it is a genre I have wanted to move into for awhile.

So I decided if I was going to start, why not start with a classic of magic, and let’s be honest, the Coin Matrix IS a classic of magic.

Having watched the video clip, and contacting Andy – who assured me it really is easy to do (even with no experience in coin manipulation), I made the purchase.

Well blow me down with a feather if it wasn’t exactly as he said!

I have to admit that it took me a couple of hours of practice before I had it down as smooth as the video demo, but it really was that quick to pick up.

From the spectators point of view I can now do a very impressive matrix, and although it may not actually require as much skill as some matrix’s, they don’t know that!

This is a very impressive product.

Rating.
Effect/item: 9/10, Quality of goods: 9/10, Value for money: 10/10 (to be honest at £8 I would say 11 out of 10)

Bottom Line.
It’s quite simple. The Mogtrix makes me look like I have been performing coin magic for many years. Thank you Mr. Hunter.

WOW! I mean 'effin WOW!

The Mogtrix...what can I say, I'm stunned...and jealous!

That's what magic is about folks. Here's a chap who sat himself down said "I love coin magic" and, over time, devised a routine that simply works...it does what it says on the tin. You can sit there and you can see him do it.

Congrats Mog, I hope you guys who are into coin work get your wallets out, The Mogtrix is OBVIOUSLY worth it!

I can't seem to get the video to stream despite having Quicktime on my PC. Any suggestions?

I get a dialogue box to click to run an active X control which I accept. I then get the quicktime 'Q' logo which quickly changes to a quicktime logo that looks like a piece of broken film reel.

I'm having the same problem dat.

All I can think of is that we need the newest quicktime?

You wont find much better anywhere and it's nothing - a rigmarole with a few bits of paper and lots of spiel. That is Mentalism

I've got the latest QT so I don't think that it's that - follow Mogs Link above :lol:

Mog. I remember this now and I'm just as bamboozled now as I was when I originally saw this post. I know what's going on but it's how you achieve it with your hands looking SO SO natural.

Looks like another sale is heading your way - I see that even NUMS hasn't solved the ole CUPS problem :lol:

I wish that this was sold on an American site. Stuff over here is cheaper than it is over there! Nice review. I also want to add that ever since I've seen the video of The Mogtrix I have been obsessing with it. I've watched it coutless times and to this day cannot figure out. Bravo, Mog.

Thanks,
Dominick

I'm with you, Dominick. There's quite a few things I'd love to purchase from NUMS. Hopefully, Seige will be able to work something out. Until then, I'll have to be patient!

Hi Guys!

Well, you'll be pleased to know, within about 48 hours, items will be shipping to the States.

I am not sure of the final postage costs, but I will let you know.

In the meantime, the Mogtrix is downloadable... and the PDF downloads are available to any country.

And yes—Andy is on a winner with the Mogtrix. It really does play as cleanly as it looks. Forget Chink-a-Chink, you can actually lift your hands from the table with this one!

Ordered mine yesterday based on the review alone as I couldn't get the clip to run either. Now I have seen it I can't wait to get my hands on this. I will let you know how I get on with it

For some reason I cant play the clip either. If it the same as the other guys have mentioned it is the Mogtrix clip on the NUMS website.

I think the mogtrix was once posted on the file sharing section which I could view?
