It was a dud alright.

Overpriced.

Highly impractical.

The demo video was a false representation of the product.

Only those that invested the time and effort learning to use the sleeve-star properly can comment with any real authority.

I spent the proper amount of time learning it and think of it as a wonderful device.

However, most magicians will have expected to hook it up and be doing the trick immediately. This simply isn't the case. I think the high price of the unit led many to believe it would do the trick for them. How very peculiar!

Remember, you only get out of something what you put in.

Those who talk negatively about sleeve-star simply haven't invested the effort IMHO.

This device is still wonderful in my eyes..
You can do so many indirect! effects with it, just impossible things and i'am sure its meant to create logical disconnects at its best.

Kind regards and much fun with it.

I just purchased Sleeve-Star and I am having the issue with my coins not making it all the way into the gimmick. I have three jackets and it looks they are all made the same way: with a ridge of cloth where the sleeve connects to the rest of the jacket. I don't' see any way to remedy this without modifying and possibly compromising the integrity of my jacket. Has anyone addressed this already on the forum? Sorry for the repeat if it has been. Thanks, ~Tony

Poor David, I hope he gets things sorted.

I recently received sleeve-star and I am very pleased with the device and the explanation. Don't really care about how it was shown in the demo, because some pretty amazing things can be done with it. I think it would take me a bit of practice to do the effect as he did in the demo, but I believe it could be done just about as it was done in the demo with practice and skill. None-the-less, it doesn't matter. It can be used in much easier ways that are just as amazing.
Excellent!

Hopefully I will also be able to purchase this. There are so many mixed reviews but I have other Items from WizardFX so I trust this is a descent product.

You can't give this away over here I put mine up for sale for a fiver months ago and it didn't sell, you really need a jacket a couple of sizes too big or at least pretty baggy under the arm and ideally wear a tee shirt with the sleeve taped up. This is extremely over priced and there are far far better things to spend $120 on. The effects possible with this can be done with the TKO 2 in most cases and generally the TKO 2 version is more deceptive. Mine came free with the TKO 2 and I was still overcharged for it but the safety pins that came with it have come in handy here and there.
