Type of effect: 4 number mental reveal

Manufacturer's Write Up:
Utsukushii, the billet-less pin reveal, is a sure fire way to guess a single digit number someone is only thinking of, without anything having to be written down or props of any kind. It can then be used to work out other numbers such as pin codes, phone locks and entire phone numbers. If you would like to be able to reveal the pin numbers of strangers you meet or guess numbers which only exist as thoughts in a person's mind, using only words, then this method is for you. NO dual reality is used. NO stooges or instant stooges. It can be used close up or on stage with a 100% success rate. It's elegant, it's clean and it's direct.

What's in the box? All you get is a soft bound thinline booklet

Key Points:
It can be used anytime, anywhere! It's a prop-less effect. No stooges are used. It's easy to perform.

My thoughts:
This is a solid routine and very well thought out. Fans of Peter Turner will love this.

Is it well made: Yes

Is it well taught: Very well taught, but mind you this is not a long routine, it's only a variation of an old Annemann routine.

How are the production values: Here I'd have to say that you are not getting a lot of value with this. While I appreciate the effect, $40 for a booklet of a re-worked pre-released effect seems steep.

Overall score: 5/10

I find it highly amusing that you note that fans of Peter Turner will love an overpriced re-worked pre-released effect. ;)
