Looks like Greg will be releasing a new effect in about a week:

Anyone have the inside scoop?

Newb2, you out scooped everyone! I have never heard of this.

It was advertised in the latest issue of Magic Magazine.

He had some of these at Blackpool, the only downside for me was that I think you have to be wearing a tee shirt but it did look pretty good.
Message: Posted by: tasteofmagic (Apr 3, 2013 05:43AM)
This has been out for a while. I picked one up at FISM last year. It is very good...I think there is an online trailer somewhere, if I find it I'll post it.
Message: Posted by: Michael Dustman (Apr 3, 2013 09:17PM)
He showed this during his Penguin lecture about a year ago. Nice concept.
Message: Posted by: Zombie Magic (Apr 9, 2013 12:07PM)
Sorry if this is obvious, but can this be worn full time, so you have it to perform anytime, anywhere?

I wonder if you can get the tag engraved? There's this really old book called Practical Mental Effects. I'm sure there is something in it that can be applied to the tag(s);-)
Message: Posted by: trickychris (Apr 9, 2013 03:29PM)
I saw Greg do this at one of his uk lectures last week and yes, you can wear this all day and be ready to go...
Message: Posted by: Martino (Apr 10, 2013 05:25AM)
I was Greg's volunteer for the performance of this effect at his lecture last night. It's excellent and as the spectator I can tell you that the moment the dog tag penetrates through the t-shirt feels weird (in a good way)! It would be very memorable for a spectator. Just be mindful that you have to be wearing a t-shirt or thin sŵeater to be able to do this. It doesn't work well with button up shirts. As something that you would wear all the time so you are ready to perform an impromptu miracle this is excellent!

J-Mac, a straight on view of the effect shows you nothing. It looks just like it did on the video. Greg did this on me during his recent lecture tour and the effect is stunning. I felt like those guys on the video. I'm not easily fooled these days but this got me and it was tremendous. I will be buying this for sure.

To clarify a couple of the questions above. The dog tag has the word Illusion (written as an ambigram). The premise being that all magic is an illusion which you then go on to demonstrate.

The effect is the penetration of the dog tag through the shirt from the outside to the inside. He shows the tag, places it under a fold of cloth on his t-shirt and gets the spec to place their finger on top. Then as the shirt is pulled tight the spec "feels" the dog tag penetrate through to the inside. Let me tell you, it's a stunning effect.

I bought this on Greg's Lecture Tour. The reactions were great, when he showed it.

A buttoned shirt might work, but I wouldn't risk it.
Message: Posted by: music (Jun 30, 2013 08:59PM)
Do you at some point remove the chain and then remove the tag from the chain, or do you bring the tag from your pocket and then do the penetration thru the shirt?
Message: Posted by: Michael Dustman (Jun 30, 2013 09:46PM)
When Greg showed this at his Penguin lecture last year, he mimicked taking the tag off the chain before tucking it back into his shirt. Anybody who has ever performed Tagged by Richard Sanders should feel plenty comfortable with this move.

Sterling silver is not plated; it is 92.5% pure silver. But I don’t think I believe that the tags are truly sterling. Most likely someone just used that term without realizing what sterling silver is. Probably plated at best; more likely made of stainless steel - which would be just fine IMO!

It's difficult to see how they could be sterling silver with the current price per oz.

Acar,

Can you comment please? It would be nice to know if it was just a mistake in the blurb.

Not sure why anyone cares if they are sterling silver or not, but they are high quality and I've been having fun playing with it. The routine is more than what is shown in the demo video and yes, the first sequence involves you magically removing the tag and showing the chain "empty" before doing the final penetration. Great walk-around piece that takes up no pocket space and is always ready to go. Another great non-card add to my show.

Isn't it obvious? If I sold you a silver necklace and after you'd bought it you found out it was steel, would you be ok with that.

And for me, it's no problem if its not silver but don't be telling me its silver if its not.
Message: Posted by: ike_hill (Jul 5, 2013 10:37AM)
Can the actual tag be replaced with another tag? I have military dog tags and this would be a great effect for me but I would prefer to use my actual military dog tag and not the illusion one. Can I replace the illusion tag with my standard military tag? Thanks in advance for any help.
Message: Posted by: emyers99 (Jul 5, 2013 11:43AM)
Tough to be specific without tipping the method but neither the tag nor the chain are gimmicked. So yes, you can substitute your own tags.

As for the silver vs. steel question, I have no idea. The chain is clearly not silver, and for $39, I highly doubt the tag is actually pure silver. Bottom line, the props and dvd are high quality. Easily worth what he's asking.

Message: Posted by: J-Mac (Jul 6, 2013 11:36AM)
I agree that whether or not it is made of silver is unimportant as long as the quality is good, which Eric has already attested to. :)

A lot of people commonly use the term "sterling silver" or "sterling" when referring to things that are not actually made with silver. AAMOF, how many here use the term "silverware" to describe your dining utensils? I'll wager that most are not eating with silver forks and spoons! But it is an accepted term in common use. More important, folks need to use their brains - a real sterling dogtag will cost much more than this effect.

I would much prefer the tag to be stainless steel, though I doubt it is even that. But I am confident that it is a high quality item, which is what counts!

Thanks!

Jim
Message: Posted by: emyers99 (Jul 6, 2013 03:16PM)
It's got a chromed/polished finish so I'm assuming it is prone to scratches. For that reason, I sort of wish it had more of a flat finish. But with normal use, it should hold up forever.

The dvd is very good. Greg teaches 2 phase, 4 phase, and 1 phase routines. There is also a handling taught by carl hein (i believe) that can be used when wearing a button up shirt. It has a wicked visual link that fooled me.

As for the shirt issue, there's no reason you can't do it with a button down shirt as long as the collar is open so you can access the chain. Greg says a tee shirt works best because a button down shirt might lead people to believe you just shoved the tag between the buttons.

Have to agree , problem is there is always one person that likes to stir things up , at the end of the day it's the effect that matter not what it's made of ( as long as good quality) makes no odds if its silver or not

Yes and that one person usually turns out to be ___ ;) you've just entered the thread and claimed an issue that doesn't exist. It was a simple point that if they are stainless steel, they shouldn't be advertised as made from sterling silver. Not exactly a controversial position is it? Just common sense.

The fact that the routine is good doesn't really have any relevance.
Message: Posted by: DTJK (Jul 7, 2013 11:33AM)
Sometimes chains tarnish, and the colour changes from silver to copper/bronze. So does dog tags. Causes can be the perspiration, or even the air. I'm not trying to say I'm gonna wear the product and take a shower (or maybe.. :D) but generally good chains and dog tags can be bathed in, like military tags. They don't have to be SILVER, just stainless steel. Scratches doesn't matter, I'm just worrying about the tarnishing issue. It can take weeks, or months for that to happen. Just hope that it wont be the case for this.

Of course you are correct Sean. Deceptive advertising can be considered a criminal offense. Anyone who would argue this (some are even attacking you), is obviously a shill and probably a criminal themselves.

Magicians helping magicians accept false advertising? Really, really sad.

When the owner of a certain magic company PM's me to tell me what my view should be I just tell them to get lost. I guess certain others here are more easily pushed around.

If it's not sterling silver and it's advertised as such, report them to the authorities. Don't waste time here. If someone is sensitive to metals and buys this thinking it's silver because it was advertised as such, the seller will be liable for damages. Whether that be pain and suffering from a rash, sleep disturbances, kidney problems... it's basically a free-for-all now that the dealer has been notified of the misleading statements and elected to keep the ad copy the way it was.

Now we're talking negligence. It's all been documented here. Someone needs to step up and collect! Put a stop to this.

That's right, the other Don Dasher wan't all caps. If I get banned and come back with ZOMBIE MAGIC in caps...I bet they'd notice. Maybe I'm just special;-)

I don't think that will work.

Instead you should put up a fake forum, a duplicate of the one you got banned from. Link to it from the old forum so users end up here without realizing. In the new forum, you'll have mysteriously reappeared.

Please stop gawking now, you're making me feel like some kind of freak.

For the record, do not be afraid to do this !!!! Yes it is bold, but if you practice, yes the word so many magicians hate, they want everything to be self working (including me). But if you take the time to practice, this is a killer. I literally worked on it for around an hour to go to my guinea pig, my wife. She usually catches me on things of this sort due to the fact shes seen em do them all before. This one left her asking "do it again", and when we went to dinner she said are you going to do your new trick tonight? She never brings up magic, ever !!

I agree 100%. I am new to magic and like when it is self working and you end clean, as it takes a lot of pressure from me. Anyway I learned that doing "real" magic forces boldness, courage and a lot of practice - especially in misdirection. Love that effect as it fries peoples minds.

I bought this a long time ago. havent had the opportunity to tried this but after reading nocturnalmagic it motivated me to give this a go in the street and to practice.

I am suprised "Unleashed" has only so few posts. This is killer. Needs a bit of practice but pays off big time
