It's good to know this product is NOT for beginners at this stage...it won't be wasted money for those that lack experience in sleeving.

Am I missing something here? Is it for beginners, or not?

Surely not?!

I have been looking forward to this one, but from what one can see in the demo, it is clear that one must be able to deliver an object to a sleeve, and this is a gimmick that then does something else.

I would suggest starting with a Rocco DVD or Cloutier.

Im excited, might pick mine up at L.A.D.S

This is REALLY good. I've seen David use this for real people and it's a killer.

Based on what has been communicated to me, this is NOT for beginners.

Simple sleeving really isn't rocket science. I would consider the classic palm of a card to be considerably harder. Sleeving I would say is more about timing and choreography. Excellent timing and choreography can hide a lot of bad technique. With that, I don't think people should be put off by Sleeve Star just because they will need to learn how to sleeve.

I agree totally with this, sleeving is actually easy to do, the hard part is to make it look like you're not sleeving!!!

I also think it is very deceptive to have one hand behind your back, reminds me of the One Hand in the Pocket type card effect. Imagine also holding a sealed box behind your back, the coin vanishing and appearing inside the sealed box, now that would be really good. I can see so many applications for this.

Speaking of coin in box, the fact that Sleeve Star looks like it can deliver the sleeved object to the opposite hand, you can have the loading box sitting on a table and reach for it with the opposite hand. Very very clean load with little to no heat on the box. So many applications!

Looks like hocus pocus has started to sell this! I thought this was on PRe-order only!

Can anyone actually say what this is? Seems like just the usual bunch of guesses have been made which doesn't help.

At this price I'd like to know some actual facts.

I wonder if any sleeving method is suitable- Jim Pace, Brian Platts catapult, or good old Bobo/ Roberts to name but a few?

I think any method where one gets an object into ones sleeve would be suitable for this however, since this is very obviously a means to deliver the sleeved object, I think it's best to utilize this with a one handed sleeving method so that the performer's two hands do not come near each other (thus the coin transpo in the first demo is such a strong effect).

This looks nice. I have had this on my wish list for a few weeks now. But I don't do pre orders anymore because of all the hype on things. I will wait for a few reviews. Hope everbody who gets this will have a few reviews.

A few months back I had the good fortune to watch a demo of SleeveStar, (this was a pre-manufacture prototype) and if the finished product is as good as the demo, then it's going to be an absolute WINNER. Congrats to David Jay.

Hmmmm... a question for you, does the item that needs to be sleeved need to be of a weight of some sort, I was wondering whether you could sleeve a folded card say in quarters and would the device also deliver it into the other hand?

Hopefully no safety pins either? I hate safety pinning things to my jacket lining, it ruins the lining!
