Here we go again...

This looks really good, though.

Can be done with an empty or factory sealed bottle.
Ultra quick set-up.
No-cover visual penetration.
Signed coin.
Can be done with other objects.
The bottle hasn't been "tampered" with.

What do you all think? I might buy it, it's pretty cheap.

I say it's impossible, I am not going to buy this until someone discovers that the ad is not honest.

There is this review on the site:
This is a good effect but takes the right environment and is not impromptu in any sense of the word. What I do not like and I feel that is not fair to magicians are the mistatements in the description. You cannot hand out the "sealed" bottle as a keepsake. It is not possible. Hope this helps someone make an informed decision.

Sounds like the ad might be a bit misleading.

Read this review that was on the site:

This is just awesome. I just got it but it is so easy I plan on doing it tomorrow for a show. The reviewer that said it can't be done with a sealed bottle was mistaken. He is refering to the Abyss that came out years ago. This one the bottle is TOTALLY sealed and given away. The methods to Abyss are very original, trust me. There is a very short set-up, but much of the effect can be done impromptu without needing to have anything on you. The skill needed to do it would be a 1 on a 1-5 scale meaning. Much of it is self=working. I am very impressed.

Wow that looks like the perfect coin in bottle. I placed in order via penguin. I hope the effect is as practical as it sounds/looks

The adv didn't say it can be done with signed coin though?

It did in the demo. It also showed a signed quarter in a factory sealed bottle.

I liked the old version. It may not have been practical, but it did leave the spectator with a great souvineer.

One of the effects look very similar to Lucid Dream 2.
Most of them look visual, except for one of the factory sealed version.

Btw the effects shown can all be achieved using the old Abyss gimmick.

"The Ultimate is still the Ultimate" Does that mean that the new Abyss is the same as the old Abyss?

So you cannot give out the bottle at the end of the trick?

I don't quite like the old Abyss. The set up is too fragile for me to perform it with confidence.

Looks like the same method, just the bottle upside down.

in the original abyss the bottle had to be tampered with. also the penetration looks different. the bottle could also not be sealed, and it used a label although it wasn't necessary. the set up was considerable and for the new abyss is "ultra quick" so is probably not the same set up. old abyss ain't immediately examinable either. the price is the same though, so could be using a similar gimmick.

I wouldn't be surprised.
It looks like the same gimmick to me.
If so, the Set Up is a problem for many. (not to mention dirty clean up)

Doesn't look like you can do right there in front of your spectators.

From his performance, he takes the label off, but still needs cover.
I'm guessing it's pretty much the old abyss just with liquid.

Anything is ultra quick compared to the old abyss.
Anyone know what the totally set up time is?

I do not see how it could be done using the same gimmick. And read my post below that review. It can be kept forever by the spectator.
