So True!

The Flat Container's top has a perfect curvature, thus providing you with a very versatile platform for doing many other effects - e.g. doing Matt Sconce's SPIN.

And, BTW, you can use the Fail Safe TK Pen to do a dual effect. First, using the 'TK Pen', do the 'SPIN' effect (you being close to the prop). Then do the 'TK Pen' effect while you are faraway from the prop. This will not only freak them out but will also strengthen the belief that the PEN really has some sort of mystical powers. One can workout the presentation/ performance aspect.

Yes, you're right. Amazing what a little more practice can do. I am now getting about 90% of the desired reaction with either capsule but I agree that there is more pre-drop movement with the flatter capsule.

I am glad you are now having success with the flat container.The pre roll movements you mention really can set up the reaction of the spectators when the larger roll movement occurs.

Best.

My 'Failsafe TK Pen Kit' is now also available in blue/white with blue ink.

I personally like the action of the tall capsule tumbling.However,it can be filled with water[it's water tight],if you prefer it to be more stabile.

For those who own My Faisafe TK Pen Kit...here is a different set-up: Cap on the opposite end. If you have not tried this yet give it a go...you can get some dramatic pre roll movements. Smile

Any questions shoot me a PM.

Happy New Year to all.

WOW! The pen makes a great spooky kind of a movement. Rich, Thank you for sharing.

I didn't know that the pen can be made to tilt & fall on either of its ends. Good find. Rich, there is always something new to learn from you & your product(s) including existing products like this one.

Glad that I took a wise decision of purchasing the Fail Safe TK Pen Kit. I am enjoying every bit performing the 'Fail Safe TK Pen'. Smile

To the best of my knowledge, there is no other PEN like the Fail Safe TK Pen. Also it is the only pen that rotates & falls and that too in the direction the SPECTATOR wishes it to fall. IMHO the TK PEN is the ultimate PEN. Hmmm, you don’t believe me?! Smile OK, try it for yourself. You will be happy that you did!

Happy New Year

Smile

Narendra....as I told you privately...thank-you for your astute comments...coming from you they are very special... especially given you technical background.

I am glad you are enjoying your FS TK Pen. Smile

Here is another of my favorite placements. [ sans cap ] http://tinyurl.com/28wkzvw

Please click on 'full screen' to see the 'important' early movements. In my experience these pre movements are what really tend to elicit gasps and comments from my guests...and also they set up the final roll off nicely.

Thank-you again Narendra!

Happy trails.

I already owned Rich's Original TK pen and recently received the updated versions, the Bic and Sharpie models. I'd like to start off by syaing that his customer service is great and I always enjoy buying from him. I recently had a small problem having to due with being in a very high altitude location and Mentalcraft helped me out with this right away.

The quality is great and after seeing the new pens, I can see the quality is improving each year! I've been using the TK pen as part of a longer routine involving a pencil, Matt Sconce's Spin and these pens which work great with Matt's idea. So many nice presentational premises are possible, Rich even describes some great additional ideas and I like how he includes those small stands to give you a portable calibrated surface. Of course, the pens can be used on any surface as well.

I mentioned the quality has improved lots. I now notice many more pre-movements which are vital to presenting this properly with the most skeptical audiences. Another thing I really enjoyed was how Rich has discovered many new pen placements for different new moves! Do check out all the new videos on his website so you can see what I mean. I'm using the new placements now with ease and love how they give you completely new PK movements.

Excellent work by Rich! I highly recommend these pens.

I absolutely agree. Rich's customer service is like dealing with a great friend! I purchased some items from him and he included freebies and did a lot of checking to make sure I was happy. Great work Rich.

These threads are draining my bank account! I just placed an order after reading this thread. I got a nice email explaining that it takes a few dyas to create and calibrate the pen and that I will get an email when it ships.

Thank-you so much for you comments Mauricio! I am glad you are enjoying the various placements. You are correct....the pre movements that are possible can really enhance a presentation.

Thank you James for your positive and nice comments. I should also thank YOU for sharing with me your knowledge of Chinese symbolism.

Once you receive you Kit Max...I believe you will consider this a good 'investment'. Smile
BTW, it will ship today.

Happy trails.
Rich
