Does anyone have this effect, or know where I can view a demo?

The effect is this: You show the spectator a matchbox, and then take a needle, threaded with a ribbon, and stick it through the centre of the box. With the needle still part way through, you have the spectator pull it and the ribbon completely through. Then you open the box to reveal that there is a solid, clear plastic tablet inside, taking up the entire inside space.

The method seems a bit obvious to me, but this could be one of those effects that, despite its simplicity, blows a spectator away. (And if I'm wrong about the method, then I'M blown away!)

check out matchbox penetration from the above sight.

It's $45 though + I can't see any difference between that and the one from magicsmith for $18 called 'Clearly Impossible' as you have described.

I do not oen the effect, but know how it works + have seen it performed live. It is pretty undetectable to the eye (or that may just be my poor vision - jk). It can't be examined though.

Hope this helps.
