You are correct Alan. As a matter of fact my gift to Craig is I will no longer rear my ugly head on this particular thread anymore. In the spirit of the holidays and all that rot. Plus I'm kind of bored egging him on any further.

Here's to hoping every one got what they wished for today. Toodle pip.

Gotta love Stucky's profile as a "thread killer."

Best thing anyone can do in these parts is to completely ignore the stuck-ster - that will drive him blithering batty!

Seriously. Craig, you have gone overboard trying to be of assistance and yet Stucky wants to continue to play games.

My simple advice is that everyone ignore him as he avows himself to be a thread-killer like multiple times in his profile.

Happy holidays Smile

Craig,
Thank you for the Wizard FX review. My advice is just stop responding. Trolls will be trolls. This is one thread that has unfortunately lost most its focus. Some people will be happy,some will be disappointed (I have a draw full of ho hum magic, as I am sure most people do), but that is the nature of Magic purchases. The latest few comments show that their are lots of us that appreciate your contributions,so relax. We should all take saysold1's advice.

Post the lecture when you are good and ready. It's free, and for the community's benefit; Not a required piece of testimony for the defense. Thanks for sleevestar, BTW I enjoyed that very expensive DVD you did on Rough and Smooth.

I thought I'd use my real name I hope that is OK!

It should also be noted that no one else has come forward to say they believe the demo is misleading. There is a lot to be said in that.

Not sure what to make of all this. The gimmick sounds very intriguing in application. However, if you could switch a dupe coin in and out smoothly and skillfully (as alledged by some in the demo) - why not go with that method alone, as the effect on the audience is the same, only, perhaps, smoother in execution. I would be interested in purchasing a DVD covering all the subtleties and sleeving techniques using this method - much cheaper I'm sure.


When I first saw the demo, that's exactly what it looked like to me. I thought the same thing as you. I really don't know what all the fuss or hype is about.


Dan the fuss is about using a demo to sell a product where the technique used in the demo isn't the same as what is given in the instructional dvd that comes with the product.
If you have the product the discrepancy is obvious.
The reason for this discrepancy has never been explained .
That's why some people are waiting on a response about this.

Well...chappelly, when you think about it, no response is a response. If you get my drift. Smile

You're right chappelly, I don't know what the discrepancy are because I don't own sleeve star. When I watched the demo, I personally wasn't impressed. The price seemed high for something I could do with a little slieght of hand. That's what I was referring to. I can't speak about the discrepancy cause I don't own sleeve star.

If what you say is correct, then I would completely agree with you. Something similiar happened with Frozen by Adam Grace. The demo showed a performance that was using something that is not available, not taught on the DVD. E was professional enough to remake the demo.

edh, very true! Smile

Since the beginning of the internet there have been trolls. When you realize that's what someone is, the best course is not to feed them.

Has anybody seen the knock offs on ebay? It even shows you what the gimmick looks like. This is why I wont buy off ebay anymore. But if the real gimmick looks anything like that for a 145.00 bucks. No thanks.

I just got this a couple days ago. I watched the video and I think it's only one coin. Anyone that has it knows you can pretty much transport the coin anywhere you want. Now if you look at his jacket in the video in question (I don't want to expose and if someone thinks it is please delete and I'm very sorry) But the type of jacket he is wearing would let him transport the coin wherever he wants with his right arm bent or not behind his back. Remember I think he says he has been working with it for five years. So he has had a lot of time to be modifying everything. The only thing you could say is that they never went over it in the video but it took me about 5 minutes to figure it out. So I think it is only one coin. Are you going to get this and be doing what David Jay is the same day I don't think so. The only thing I would wish for was a little more of what you get so you can make some good modifications to our jackets ourselves, I mean for the money who knows??? It's a good device that does what it says it does, with time and practice.

Hi

I got mine on Blackpoll convention after watching David presenting it all day long.
It is a great effect but it doesn't fit my work.
I am selling mine if someone is interesting please PM.
It is brand new, I only watch the DVD.

To anyone else thinking of buying Sleeve Star but you want more information beyond the trailer and customer reviews then simply wait for the lecture footage to go live on wizardfx.tv and that should answer all your questions.

I just signed up for this wizardtv thing, but didn't see it. It's been like six months now. Was the lecture taken down or am I not looking in the right place?

Quite a big debate on this thread. Does anyone have this and use it regularly?

The silence is deafening. Looks like this was a dud.
