So what's the skinny on this little interesting gem!? Anyone see this in the real world yet? Looks pretty snazzy...

Update on this one... buddy of mine at the Magic Apple here in California, told me it was "OKAY, not really a trick, more of a stunt.." - I still wanna check it out though! Damn you curiosity!

I think it looks eerie and very cool.

Meh, looks like that twig/pen that falls off a glass.

Takes a while and is quite dull.

IMHO, as ever.

Much better performance in full sequence! Feels as though it would play big in an off beat moment.

Sketch, you seem ever the eager, positive consumer lately. You enthusiasm almost has the effect of Influencing me to buy something . . . Almost.

Aha! Thanks Mr. H... honestly I'm really not trying to influence anyone to buy anything, I hope nobody thinks I'm trying to advertise or anything. However I will say, I do get super pumped when new magic comes out. Like new music is to DJ's...magic has the same effect on me.

Plus I feel as though GENII forums deserves more 'recent' links to the latest stuff on the market or soon to be out. If I can provide more helpful stuff like that to my fellow magician, then why not, ya know!? We're all looking for the next greatest trick, and or re-invented effects floating about in the world. Plus I'm trying to be a more positive person these days, I see too many other magicians barking at one another on other forums. (I myself being one of the guilty ones in the past) Guess I'm just simply trying to turn over a new magic leaf, ya know. Cheers!

I can appreciate that. Thought seemed like you had a couple of posts really near each other that could have been interpreted as - not sure the right word - shilling? I realize this could be a completely misconstruing of your intentions - but I think you can see how it may have come across that way. Thanks for putting my mind to ease. Sincerely.

Shilling... never heard that one before. So I binged it,

Shilling - a cupronickel coin and former monetary unit of the United Kingdom, the 20th part of a pound, equal to 12 pence: retained in circulation equal to 5 new pence after decimalization in 1971

In other words cheap? ehe! Not sure.

Ahhh... Nope, definitely not Shilling. I'm a producer, and only do magic as a part time hobby, I have no money to make from talking about magic. Just a very excited over grown kid when it comes to magic. Thanks Mr. Goat for the definition.
