My problems is working it into a commercial setting. It may appear strange carrying around a glass at a private party or restaurant gig when you consider how readily available they already are. If I introduce a glass to a table then I do believe that it immediately becomes an object of suspicion.You can load the glass on to table without people noticing, but unless it is the same as others on the table, then it may stand out.

It remains a great effect, but I think it was to perform for friends at your house, or in the close up competition. I would love to hear other people thoughts regarding this "problem". Are any professionals using this in a commercial setting?

Many asked but none tell whether you can drink from it, and whether it is examinable.Answer this please: does this mean not examinable, can't drink from it? Some of you have it. Why not answer the question?

You get a carrying case, the gimmicked glass, and a regular one...so appearing to drink from it will be fine...

don't do walk-around, so can't comment...i bought it for other reasons (an ed fowler routine - mentalism for those who don't know who Ed is)...

I will use mine, probably not that often, but in the right circumstance I would..

very good quality...

oh and the gimmicked glass is entirely made of glass...

I am working with the maric glass for a "glass through table" routine.
This is a fantastic prop!! I am using the r*** glass to sip water during the
evening then when I go to wipe the last drops out, the "magic" happens.
I love it.

But is examinable?

It is the most important question.

This looks like a great prop and actually for the kind of parlor and stage stuff I do introducing a glass is not a problem.

Im sure its worth the money, but nto sure I can justify it right now.

Maybe if one comes up used I'll consider it. (Saw the one above, it interests me but Im afraid your in the UK and Im in the US so I doubt shipping would be worth it.)

Okay ive got it sussed. And no I don't think the gimmicked glass is examinable, which is why you have the switch-in one included. Proper routining would allow you to end clean with the ungimmicked glass to hand out.

There is actually a tiny bit of a reveal on the video that gave me the last clue I needed. didn't spot it til my third viewing.

The funny thing is.... Mr. Maric actually TELLS you the secret in that video. But unless you've already figured it out you'ld never realize it. Very crafty, sir!

I like it. A lot. I can imagine lots of ways this could be combined with other illusions. For instance ball vanishes, glass vanishes, glass is found inside of box previously shown empty with ball inside Smile

Again cant quite justify full price on it atm but I'm going to watch for a used one.

I like this one too. oddly enough, I like it in combination with Tenyo Coin Thru. I use the non-gimmicked glass with water on the Tenyo, drink the water, and I'm ready for a fun routine.

Overall I like this effect, but the more I work with it, the more I think there is a slight defect with the design. Without giving away any secrets, I would say that the device could have been designed so it is easier to make a problem less visible. I still recommend it, but I would have preferred if they designed it better. I can see where it may have cost a bit more to do a better design, but it would have been worth it.
