I just saw the demo for this trick and it's exactly the same trick as Ghost Glass. I prefer Ghost Glass because it's with cards. I find this is trick a bit lame. Smile

Lame? Do you own it? No, based on your post. Have you tested it out on laymen? No, obviously. So, how can you speculate about this effect? Why are cards better? I personally think it great when we come across effects that don't involve cards.

The bad thing about Ghost Glass is it makes no sense to use glass and cards. What the heck is the "tie in" there?

With the Watch Crystal you have credible patter and all the props go well together. I find the watch crystal props look much better and actually provide a better trick and a more powerful one at that.

Card revelations....they get old.

No, I haven't tested this trick on laymen, but to my point of view, it sucks. I think doing things with cards is just the way to go with me. Smile

A question about both Ghost Glass and Watch Crystal - is there much "turnaround time" in setting them up for different results at different tables?

Thanks,

I know that Ghost Glass only does two selections. I don't know about Watch Crystal. Smile

No turn around time on either. Just go.

I have the same thing on a 2 inch round mirror. Turnaround time is as quick as you want.......do it yourself or let it happen naturally. Cheers.......

The trick itself seems good. I may even get my next pair of lenses for regular eye-wear treated to do the trick.

Im a little confused about the statement that ghost glass is only for card revelations.I have it and the only limit on what it can be used for is your imagination! Mindreading or any kind of mentalism for one thing.How about on a first date having it appear on a wine glass? Think about the evil uses Penn& Teller would use it for.
Go for it!!!
