I would save your money if I was you. There have been several discussions on this as well. A search will turn up a lot.

I'd say that it involves a very clever that ONLY Ellusionist has it FIRST. I'm glad that I know IT and no regrets downloading the effect!

While clever, I have never actually used this method in a real world situation.

The concept certainly isn't new but it's the first I've seen of this exact handling. It's good to know but don't think it was worth the price.

The concept is similar to something which Greg Wilson did in this On The Spot DVD where he ditched the Small glass len in one of his effects about the disappearing paper balls, etc

Study a retention pass and a few subtleties and you are good to go. You could answer the questions "where did the con go"?

Revolution produced similar effects like MELT by Eric James.

Forget it if you wear khakis, or shorts, or dress pants, or a suit jacket, or a tuxedo, or a...........Get the picture? This is not a vanish that most professionals can use due to the limitations of the attire.

Get a topit and you'll be far better off.

It is something interesting an different to have in your arsenal. I downloaded the trick from Ellusionist. My initial response was, "Is that all it is?", but I have used it in certain situations - not many, mind you due to dress and situation - and fooled people with it.
My ex-cat was named "Muffin". "Vomit" would be a better name for her. AKA "The Evil Ball of Fur".

If you know how to do lapping there is no need for this video..... But Ellusionists marketing is excellent.

I have to agree with you calexa, Ellusionists marketing is absolutely fantastic. Shame their products are not up to much...

I have to agree with him. Raven other ways fine and dandy but, Ill stick to the slieghts, I love the retention. What do you do after you do the vanish. ask yourself why would you put it on the back of your hand? Looked to see what it was but not for me. Good luck. Oh and George? DOWN HERE THEY ALL FLOAT ... couldn't resist sorry.

Paisa that movie scared the heck out of me when I was 9 or ten. I freaked whenever I saw a clown!

Ahh the Revolution. My first (and so far last effect) from elusionist. Let me give my take on it.

First the pros: You learn more than just a vanish from this. you can turn a coin into any small object that you wish, Brad did it with a die. You can do a hand penetration with the move as well. Also you don't have to limit yourself to just coin vanishes either, Those who know the method will understand. You get a DVD with Brad giving detailed instructions on the method and presentation of the effect. No gimmicks involved.

The cons: For what it is many will find it overpriced. Do not perfom this trick more than once for your audience. Can't be done totally surrounded because of angles. You can only perfom this move wearing certain clothing. I wouldn't do this trick for more than four spectators at once. I don't know if this exactly a con for all but if you don't have this vanish as part of routine the spectaors are left asking questions... "Where did it go?" "How did you do that?" or "Can you bring it back?"

I have perform this trick a few times and I can say do not get too cocky about the method and try to do this for anyone without some practice. I mean it. From all the "is that all there is to it" comments it isn't that easy to do it naturally at first. Practice. get good with it and be calm and relaxed when you do it. I have done it to laymen with pretty good results. The best result I got was when I fooled the President of the local Magic Society with it the other day at the shop.

Give this a miss. To me, it looks good only on cameras. There are many other types of vanishes around that works better

I guess some people are saying that my trick looks like the Rev coin, but I disagree. the rev coin is a good trick, but not worth the price.

this is what I'm working on (some people say its semi similar to the Rev Coin)
