i cant tell if this is really a good looking trick or not?

it looks like you really have to watch your angles

??? Still pictures don't 'tell' much!!!

What is the EFFECT of this TRICK? (The EFFECT, is what the spectator perceives.)

I suspect he is doing the "silk thru the hand", which "came out" a couple years ago, but,I can't tell for sure, from still pix.

I remember seeing the silk thru hand, in a "demo" video link here on the Café. I really wasn't impressed.

Performed right it can look killer. You do have to watch out for angles. It can be performed up close but you do want a little distance, don't want to have someone right on top of you

Thanks!
I think that one of the reasons that the bit didn't impress me was the the extremely wrinkled silk! It looked like a rag!

I try to find out about the tricks I buy as much as possible before I jump in . if I say I want to trick it does not mean I'm gonna be like a kid in a candy store and spend all my money.A lot of tricks pop up people say they look good and no one uses them this seem like one of thos tricks.i' look for tricks that not only wow people it makes me happy to still use them regardless knowing how to do it.

Thanks. It's discussed but not reviewed. Looking to get a review from someone that actually had hands on it.

I am going to watch the video again and give you a review on this one, pretty shortly. It, like some others has been collecting dust, but I am not a performer and I will give you my honest review here in a few minutes....

I know that has almost been 2 years since I got it, but I started thinking of the possibilities for this one and wanted to give a second review personally. I would have thrown it in the garbage like others if I didn't think about it completely and feel that it is nothing but a joke. My review after the video is coming. I think that this one stands a chance, just because I kept it. I will watch the video and let you know what I think almost 2 years later. I have become more of a collector than performer, but I really must have thought that this trick was good or it would have been in the garbage. All my best, Jon

I don't recommend it to a close up performer, which I am. It's kind of nice, but not so nice performer package close up. That is my truth in magic and the way I am stand out because I am going to tell you what works for me, and if it works for me not being a performer, it is going to work for you. All my best, Jon
