Hi Boydy! That looks like Tin Wenk's MisLed:

PM Vinny Marini. He has a no gimmick one that is just as good! Smile

It looks like it but this says there is no gimmick.

Where exactly does it say "no gimmick"?

It reads no Extra gimmick so I guess the pencil must be gimmicked

It kind of looks like it is a bit different than Tin Wenk's trick. You may be right, boydy. The pencil must be gimmicked, but I can't find where it says that on the page you linked above...

Probably this is a re-release. This is not a new item from Astor. It was released more than 5 years ago. I have seen it. Some fumbling required. Not worth the price IMO.

Fumbling is clearly seen on the demo video. guess it's an optimized missled

Old thread, I know, but just picked up this trick.
Though, it requires a bit more cover than Misled, I really like it.
Gimmick is built into pencil, rather than separate.
A decent replacement if you lose or break your Misled, since Misled's not available anymore.

Cameron Francis has an ungimmick version (can used borrowed bill and pen) that duplicates the two types of penetrations (vertical stab & horizontal melt) seen in Misled. Cameron's trick is called Driven.

I picked up the Astor version recently at Blackpool as I was impressed by his demo and how clean this was. I really like the method and its very easy to do. Not sure I understand the comments above regarding fumbling, I can perform this easily without any fumbling and I didn't notice any fumbling when Astor performed this for me at the Weekend. I highly recommend this as its direct, very easy to do and very clean.
