I can only add my endorsement for another fine offering by Russ. Beautifully routined, easy to get into, very visual and convincing handling. The DVD is very well produced, and his instructions are crystal clear. Great work!

Yes, Pinnacle is a must get, but let me tell you why. I met Russ at I.B.M. this year where we shared a dealer's booth together. I can tell everyone on this board from first hand experience that this trick kicks butt and yes it is very practical. I saw the reactions to this effect for days on end and this was for magicians that are suppose to be in the know. Their jaws were dropped open on almost every demo Russ did. And he did a lot. Can't say enough about the trick or Russ himself. Get it from Russ at http://www.magicbuzz.net Lance

Thanks Wandering Magician (cool picture- is that to scale? ha!)- and also Magicat, just about 70 miles away!....

Those new to this post can view the Pinnacle clip at:

http://www.magicbuzz.net

Any rubber band can be used, and a borrowed ring in the 4 phase impromptu. The Miracle Finish received some postings here, and I would like to clarify- yes, you don't need to do the Miracle Finish. I have used it for particularly special times, and it has really killed. We felt the reactions were so good, it should be 'experienced' by others via the videoclip, and possibly sprout some new unique ideas.

But the 4 phase impromptu is the one EVERYONE will be doing. Wrap a rubber band around your wrist, and you are ready to go!

I have requested a second DVD printing of Pinnacle last week. They are selling at lightning speed. Thank you so much for all of the positive responses on this board, and for those who have Pinnacle, I hope you continue to post your experiences with it.

Scott and Lance-

Thank you for the posts also! I stepped away from my last post before submitting.

Yeah, Lance, you saw it a few times in Kansas City, didn't you? Just like I saw others admiring your coin work.

Get ready, everyone- if you haven't heard the name Lance DeLong 'til now, get ready, and keep your eyes peeled. He has done some magnificent work with coins, and you will want to know more about his other work as well. Time will tell.

This is a great effect and I was able to get all the moves down after watching the DVD 2 times. One of the best out there. If you don't have it you don't know what you are missing. For the price this is a steal.

Just put it in the DVD player and hit play. It should work.

Or, more likely you are talking about the online demo....I'm not sure, what error does it give you?

Just go to Penguinmagic.com and go to their demos page and watch their demo for it.

I tried that. Penguin has something different.

If this trick is as great as Russ's Help The Creator, I'll say its a darn good trick. The only problem for me is I can't get the video to work and my local magic shop doesn't have it. Don,

Just watched Pinnacle and have to say it is the best ring and rubberband I have seen to date Russ. Everybody that likes rubberband magic should get this . Thanks for sharing this great effect with us Russ. My rating 10/10

I watched this DVD yesterday from begining to end.

Phase 1, 3, and 4 I understood after one viewing. I had to watch phase 2 about 7 or 8 times before catching on. Now, it's time to just practice, practice, practice!

Thanks Russ for releasing such an incredible effect!

Regards,

Evan

Phase 2 is the hardest phase. One thing I found that made phase 2 easier is to make the move with the hands as you are bending back and showing the ring. When the ring is bending back it is easier to change the fingers with each other.

100th post, and 78th saying this is great! The second phase wasn't as difficult as some people said but the DVD is great overall.

This trick is not that difficult to do with Russ's explanations. A little pratice and anybody can learn it in a short time.

Magicbyswh-

I'm not sure Pinnacle owners followed your find, but YES! that DOES work! Nothing at all is lost in the visual. It may make it even a little MORE visual, and it loses nothing in interpretation while getting ready for the finish of phase 2. I think that little tip was big! Thank you!

Thank you all again for the great comments- hawk, mattpuglisi and Evan. Dr. Jakks, etc., there seems a consensus that Pinnacle rocks, and it really does! I have one request for you new owners.

It may be exciting to want to share the method with others, even a tiny bit or piece. I hope that your purchase confirms your commitment to retain this information. It value is worth more than a casual chat to reveal, and then you will have the strongest piece of magic in your community by doing so, while respecting the other owners.

Thanks again for the huge support!

Actually, I followed exactly what he said, as I came up with the same idea myself in trying to make the transfer in phase two. It is a good idea.

NastyD,

I just spent a day at Abbott's Get-Together in Colon, Michigan, and I performed Pinnacle with people surrounding me. Because of the nature of the effect, I am sure some got a better view than others. But I had little concern as to whether it was playing well or not because of it's effectiveness to be performed from multiple angles.

Hope that helps!

I had actually wanted to lay off purchasing this DVD till the end of August...

but four pages of RAVE REVIEWS is simply TOO MUCH!! Add that to the fact the creator of the effect is RIGHT HERE in this forum giving comments, saying thanks, etc...it's simply IRRESISTIBLE.

I'm buying it now...and I mean: NOW.

Thanks Russ, for this wonderful creation. Smile
