Smoke Screen Ė Magicsmith

Product description : Smoke everywhere! It seems that smoke is the new trend in magic and that many companies are trying to push their smoke product out. This is one of them and itís called Smoke Screen by Magicsmith and I must say I love this company, mainly because of Double Cross which is one of my absolute all time best trick ever (forgive my English, Iím French). The idea behind it is that you will be able to produce smoke, without sleeves or complicated device. The smoke machine is so small it can fit in the palm of your hand. Letís find out if this is as good as it looks.

Price and where to buy it : This is sold at $100 and you can find it in nearly every Murphy's magic partner !

What you get : You get a hard plastic box, I very much like the packaging, it looks professional and the items inside are well protected. Inside, youíll find a link for a pdf and an explanation video so you get to know how the device is working, what to do if the smoke begins to disappear and how to change components if needed. Youíre also getting a bottle of smoke liquid, a tiny screwdriver, and some spare parts if the ones in the device begin to wear out. And of course, you get the main unit which is very well made and should last a long time if you take care of it, itís very small and produces quite a dense smoke when you look at the size of the device. You can recharge it via USB, itís a common micro USB cable which is provided. Overall, itís quite a bit of a kit for $100, there are other smoke systems out there which are more expensive and you donít get that much stuff, so overall, Iím really pleased with it!

The pros and the cons : Here is the core of my review, let's begin with the cons, as I will usually be doing, I prefer to keep the good things for the end.

THE CONS :
- What I donít like with this product is that the resistance is not covered at all, you can burn yourself quite easily if you donít pay attention since the heater isnít covered.
- You canít activate it through a remote, it has to be in your hand.

THE PROS :
- The smoke is definitely very thick and dense, I wouldnít think such a small device could produce such a big cloud of smoke.
- It is very small, you can palm it easily and ditch it in your pocket without any problem, just let it cool down a few seconds before doing so.
- The applications are endless, since you can hide it in your hand, think about the other places you can put it, behind a borrowed phone which begins to smoke etc.. I like the variety of effects you can do with it.
- The price is really low too when you think about it, most items are like $150, $200 and this one is only a hundred bucks.
- It seems sturdy and I havenít had any problem with it when I was using it. Magicsmith is known to produce quality products so Iím confident that this will hold up very well.

Overall rating : If youíre looking a product which produces nice cloud of smoke in your hand without heavy setup or complicated tubing, Smoke Screen is the perfect tool ! I donít think Iíll use it but I can see many magicians pleased with it ! 3/4 hearts

As for the difficulty level, you just have to press on a button so itís quite easy, 1/5 stars.

Similar products : Vapr by Sansminds, Cube Smoke by Joao Miranda etc..
