So far I've managed to gimmick

You made a very good point about some possible "noise" with a cloth bag. I've not yet performed this as I always like to make sure everything is as perfect as can be. The only way I've found how to get around that is if the bottom of the bag is placed slightly on a table which would account for any discernible noise. Of course if you're standing, well I suppose it would definitely be better to use a paper bag.
But....still working on it!

All in all.....very nice!

As I explained in the DVD instructions for Truth, virtually any paper bag will work and these bags are NOT required. However we have recieved requests for the exact bags we use in the effect, so we are now making these refill packs available:

I'm using the crown royal bag and it has worked without a hitch! Love it Paul! Thanks for sharing!

To all those who have purchased Truth...

I’m currently assembling some new ideas and handlings for the gimmick into a small PDF file. I will eventually include this with the item (and of course make it available to those who already purchased it). If you've developed some ideas that you'd like to share, I LOVE to hear from you.

You can get the full details on our blog. Just scroll down to "Nothing But The Truth" at this link:

Looks very good. This is on my wish list.

I like this trick and I just keep the special something on the bottom of the bag so I can literally show my hands naturally empty and then slide off the special something as I open up the bag for the individual to take out the chips. I then load it from there.

Please don't get too specific about the method. I know you were vague but that's getting borderline. You can always PM someone, Isaiah.

This is a nice effect. Pretty much plays just as in the demo.
You and your audience will have fun with it!

Well, if he hasn’t posted anything to expose it in the year+ since his last post, I think it's safe!

I bought this several years ago and still use it regularly. It's a great effect and with good spectator involvement.

When effects have been out a little while they can fall of the radar.

I know I was the last one to post on this thread but again, last night, I performed Truth and it is as good and entertaining as ever.

It is one of my favourite effects for small gatherings.

I've had my eye on this for years. I just came across it again. I'm curious...

Can the gimmick be used with coins, instead of poker chips?

Also. I looked for it on elmwood, but cannot find it. Is this because of the transfer to penguin? Is this product even still available?

Thanks
Matthew

I don't see it available on 5 sites I checked. I'm not sure whether to be happy that I picked this up when I did since it is GREAT, or sad that a great effect no longer seems to be available. More sad, since there's too many mediocre / bad effects out there.

Paul is selling this item at the live events that he attends. I saw him at an event in Seattle earlier this year and he fooled me completely with this routine. It was an immediate purchase and I could not be happier with the product.

Does anyone know where to buy refill bags for this effect - the link on the Elmwood site is no longer live and I can't seem to find a paper bag which is both black on the outside and on the inside?

Thanks,

Jack

Hi drop Paul a line at Paulrichards.com I'm sure he'll help. I met him at live expo on Long Island and purchased this one too.
