Seems like AGL is fast coming on top of those infamous KRCs.

runawayjag & coinman21 hit the nail on the head. if you owe it, you know it.

Think not what magic can do for you, but what you can do for magic.

Braco's Ball and Killer Red Caps were not released in 2006.

I am not sure if it was a recent release, but Signed note in Peanut Can takes some beating - Hole in head - very poor - To be honest I am a dealer in Australia and I am horrified at a lot of the rubbish that is put out in the name of magic.

When I get a bummer I always refund - it costs me a lot, but I don't like ripping people off. My Room of Horrors is filling up. I think the main problem is the descriptions - If manufacurers were more realistic it would do so much to bring some honesty back into magic. don't get me wrong, their are a lot of wonderfull goods available - Its just sorting out the rubbish. Its great to see a topic such as this - I hope it gets a lot of replies

Deceptive videos are also a problem - remember Pen Thru Arm or InTact?

Once in a while its great to see such topics pop-up. It reminds us as to how ruthlessly WE (some of us) tend to cheat our own community. And we continue to talk of principles relating to honesty, secrecy & rips.

Please do not thrash me for my views on the subject as these are purely my thoughts and the way I have been made to think after being cheated time & again.

Sorry for going off topic but couldn't help!

Back on topic. Smile

Best regards to all,

It's not a trick - but worst video for me this year was Jay Sankey's "Art of Sleight of Hand"

...something to write about, while I try to think of the worst trick - hehe.

Hands down, Anti-grav. I feel sorry for the Creator if he decides to release anything else. Hope he claims all the money he made through his Province for tax purposes. I would hate to have had someone contact them, and tell them how much money he made on the release of his Levitation.
I get to gaff some cool stuff for some cool people

Anti-gravity levitation should win worst trick of the decade.
Blatant false advertising here.
Poor quality gimmick, and the creator just vanished.
Well that's my vote.

Ok, surprise, surprise AGL aka "the legendary 100 bucks socks levitation, nobody is allowed to write something negative or the thread disappers" is the favorite at the moment and I think this great crap has a good chance to win this year, next year and may be the following next years.
A real surprise for me is "hole in the head" it got so many positive reviews also from people like richard osterlind that I really wonder why this effect is on the second place.

The results at the moment:
1. AGL with 12 votes
2. hole in the head with 7 votes
3. Axis with 2 votes
4. Art of slight, ghost gavel and holey shirt with 1 vote.

But the race isn´t over. Faites vos jeu - s´il vous plait.
