Amazing, If I didn't promise my dealer that I'd get this from them, I would be on my way to the post office with my order. Very clever method Ben.

Ingenious!

I have a couple of questions.

1. Can I use my 2" X 2" X 1/2" M-50 grade magnet or do I need to get the smaller magnet?

2. Will the card levitate higher if I use a stronger magnet (like the one I already have)?

My order just went out as well! These are probably going to sell fairly fast.

The effects on the DVD and lecture notes are far beyond your abilities. (They require mastery of the mechanic's grip.) It would only break your heart.

If I go through the work of filling out the form and mailing it I should know if I am going to get one or not.
Ben wants everything through the post I take it.


Yes, good point. What happens to orders that aren't received in the first 100? Will they be fulfilled minus the custom gimmick? Will they simply be dropped? I shelled out $60 Canadian to get the form there as fast as possible, so I hope to get the rest of my order, even if I miss out on the limited edition extra.

The effect looks great but this process of wondering if your visa will get there in time is a screwed up process. Why not take a fax if you won't take email, don't tell me you don't have a fax machine, get one.

Only thing that makes sense is he doesn't want the mail to get there too quick.

If you want to be one of the first 50 to get it for $50 +$10=$60 you also have to buy Enlightenment for $80 I believe. It might cost you $140 to get everything.

Wow, that's ingenious!

I don't understand how the spectator can lift up the card off the deck themselves, though.

From what I read.. I'm understanding that the gizmo that they have is probably built into a card (or a stack) and holds the charge from the gizmo that the magician holds onto. I'm sure it will be explained perfectly in the actual instruction booklet.

However it works, it sounds awesome and I can't wait to get one!

Yes, I was hoping the information packet would have a better explanation of the logistics involved. It leaves a number of questions unanswered but hopefully Ben will be able to shed some light on those here.

Hi guys.

If you want to be sure about securing what you need, send an email and I'll reserve it for you.

You can then follow up with a letter and CC number or cheque.

All the pre-orders will be shipped when we ship everything to our distributor (Murphys) at the end of April.

By doing this by snail-mail I can sit down with all of the letters in one hit. I won't even pick up the mail from the post office for two weeks, I can't be distracted or I'll miss the deadline. It's simply time management. Old school, but that's just gotta be the way right now.

Please, if you have any concerns just wait until your dealer has this. I'd much prefer you give your sale to your dealer, he/she deserves your business and support.

Cheers
