Anyone here have "The Gecko" or a comparable gimmick? Thoughts? Reviews?

Thanks in advance,
Tony

There is a detailed review in this month's Genii.

Ah, thank you. I've been out of town and forgot to take it with me so I haven't seen it yet. Heading there now. Thanks!

Tony

Edited to add: The newest one I have is April and I don't see a review of "Gecko" in there. But I do see that it's mentioned as the #1 best-selling effect from the chart provided by Murphy's.

Which issue are you referring to as "this month's"?

Well this is an old thread, but this is still one of the most tantalizing items out there.

I had an order in the works, but canceled it after reading a bunch of user reviews that said the promo video was misleading re: the angles, and that the device was noisy in operation.

Confirm? Deny? Disavow any knowledge?

If some people could say they are using it successfully in real life, I'd be happy and would re-order it, as it looks like real magic in the video.

But if not, then well not.

It was well-reviewed in Genii, but the reviewer definitely had some caveats regarding certain aspects.

Thank goodness for diplomacy.
