I want it. I want it now. Greg Arce says it's good. Enough for me. This kind of impromptu work is hard to come by.

Dude, you're doing better than me. I think I'm about 90% on it.

You probably have done it more then me Greg. I like it because its impromptu and I can supplement my other "pen" PK work with it using gimmicks. I am using it like a hypno/suggestion type effect. When I first read it, I thought it was so simple (and it is) and then the hard part kicked in. Smile

Happy to hear the work you've put into it, Candin. Now you'll be able to add to this set with Gerard's effect.

This sounds somewhat similar to Anthony Co's Mindbender, likely arrived at independently, of course.

You can find video of it at http://www.ellusionist.com/product/trick......+bend.do although I know mentalists on this forum wouldnt be caught dead playing around with ellusionist stuff Smile (Um, right.)

may I suggest you that if you know the method for anthony cos "mindbender" you try it YOURSELF with some paper money: if it work YOU probably GOT IT

and if it doesn't work you come here and TELL US DOES NOT

ONLY then we know you were NOT just trying to ADVERTISE another product using mr.Arce and Gerard thread as a spin

So, I've been playing with this for the past two days and its great. Gonna use it tonight in the restaurant gig...I'll let everyone know how it plays with real people.

As for this being similar to Mindbender...they are completely different. With this effect the bill can actually be seen moving and doesn't take 2 minutes to finally see the end result. You also don't need to be touching it for the bill to move. It's placed onto the table and you see it move around. Plus, the subtleties that Gerard was explaining to me on the phone were great. This seriously looks and even FEELS like the real thing when you perform it.

Matthew, don't bother. Soon we will be seeing, "But can I do this with my pants. I always wanted to put my pants on a table and make them move. If this can't do that then it's not worth it." or "So, I don't need to touch the bill at all? I can be in another state, fast asleep, and anyone on the planet pulls out their bill and it starts to move? If this is not real magic you are selling then I'm not buying it because I don't want to buy anymore tricks." Smile

So when you say "So, I've been playing with this for the past two days and its great."

Does this mean it is available to everyone yet.. or still limited edition release?

Im sure this one will be great.

I use all of Andrew Gerards other effects all the time, they are EXTREAMLY practical in the real world, I'm sure this one will be aswell.

Can this be performed while I am suspended in a strait jacket over Niagra Falls at high noon on a Friday?

I would like to clear up a possible misunderstanding. I was not implying that the clip offered was the effect in question.

It was simply a clip from a person of interest to me.
The guy is requesting some assistance.

He is presenting the effect as real and I really have not a clue as to if it is or not. (If it is not I don’t want to waste my time).

If Gerard’s new effect is similar in effect I wanted to know so that I might have a starting point in verifying the guys claim.

Sorry for any confusion this may have caused.

I am sure that considering the quality of Gerard’s previous offerings this will be of the same order.

Once again sorry for any misunderstandings.

Thanks, Jim, for the clarification. I'll admit I was one of the confused (yet I kept my mouth shut about it, will wonders never cease?!).

Look, as for the effect, if I can't do it over the phone, for somebody on Mars, without any set-up at all, then it isn't real "magic"/"pk"/"mentalism"/"whatever".

However, and I am in the minority based on the threads in the reviews section at the Café, I don't believe in "real" magic. There are always trade-offs and to imagine there is anything that doesn't have one is foolish.

With the exception of Accuracy, which I am sure is just an issue that needs to be corrected on my end (got some recommendations), Gerard has been better than many others in describing his effects, even if it might cost him purchases. I respect that, respect his body of work, and like to break dance when drunk.
