Hello Everyone,

As I mentioned above, there has been a slight delay and they will arrive with us this Wednesday (10th October) and will ship to Murphys that day. I would expect Murphys to have stock from Monday 15th October.

Thanks again everyone for your support.

Best,
Russ

A nice idea with this although it would require carrying a compile of the prepared ices. It would be great for the big guns of the party or the bride/ groom table. Before you start, draw the names of three cards that are forced at different points during your routine onto your business card. Fold and freeze this into a block of ice. The quality of your card will determine how saturated your card gets. Mine are thin card but once frozen, they kind of solidified again. If you have a gloss card, it works better. Load the ice into your holder.

During the begining of the performance, write down a secret prediction into one of your business cards. Fold it and tell them you'll put it where you can't get to it. Wrap the business card in flash paper and in the process of finding a lighter, switch out the flash paper covered card for a piece of folded flash paper without a card inside. Continue with the too the max revelation. Then find an empty wine glass on the table and place the ice in the glass in the Center of the table.

Perform your set but force those three cards at different points and have them signed. At the end of your set, chances will hopefully be that the ice is not melted. Tell them they may want o keep hold of their cards for later and you hope they enjoy your little prediction.

This is cool for several reasons. Firstly, it leaves them wih your buisiness card. Secondly, it creates an opening and closin of your effect that keeps the intregue of your guests. Lastly, there is a beaufull delayed effect. By the time the ice has fully melted, you'll be a couple of tables ahead and still be getting reactions around the room.

For the workers, it has the potential to be an awesome effect. Delaying the revelation until after you've go e on top of the fact that your card is inside a block of ice, it's just awesome!

I think this is great as pure magic!

I feel cards can be overused, although I do like the idea of the delayed revelation although I would worry they would crack it or smash it open too quickly. I feel if you produce ice from fire alone and don't incorporate it with anything else it is much more pure and adds another string to your bow rather than making it another coin trick or card trick. It is magic, not trickery.

Just my thoughts... Not meaning to stomp on anyone's creativity!! (even you Jamie!!)

Best,

Ben

Hi Keiron,

received this today and I love it & will use it.

I looked at the "Gimmick" & thought is this it? But as it does the job, that's all that is needed. I had guessed the handerling, but the idea is great.Simple & direct.

One question though is the gimmick in the dvd larger than the one supplied or is it just that it looks bigger as it's on the big screen ?

Anyway congratulations on a great release.

Just got mine, having a job writing this through the tears of laughter that the sight of the gimmick brought on. Thanks Keiron! I'm sure it will work fine, just made me giggle( uncontrollably for five mins)

Hello Everyone,

Thanks for all the emails today from people that just received "To the Max" and for the kind words.

In respect of the holder, these have all been made for us personally by Kieron himself, as we wanted to be sure that it was exactly right. These are exactly the same size and type that he uses in his act. Like most good things, the simplicity is what makes this so brilliant and usable in the real world, as Kieron proves in the demo:

Again thanks so much for your purchase of 'To the Max" and we hope you have a lot of fun performing it.

Best,
Russ
