My friend Harvey Raft has been very busy lately. Over the past several months he has produced some interesting effects for the mental magicians out there.

If you wish to reveal a mentally selected song, consider Harvey's, "Mental Karaoke"

For the revelation of a selected phone number, Harvey has produced, "What Number, Please?"

Both effects are available from Murphy's and they are pleased to report that more commercial miracles will be on their way soon from Mr. Raft.

Congratulations Harvey!
Blessings on thee, little man,
barefoot boy with cheeks of tan...
Outward sunshine; inward joy,
Blessings on thee, barefoot boy! :-D

Like the sound of the karaoke thing, I have a similar effect, it was in one of the Mystic Menagerie issues from Lebanon Circle.
By failing to prepare, we are preparing to fail.

Harvey has released a few very interesting sounding mental effects. Has anyone used any to be able to comment on their quality
thanks

Hello,

I would be very interested in reading some reviews of his "Total Premonition" and "Zener Super Mind Power." Any assistance would be greatly appreciated! Thank you!!

What's in a name by Harvey Raft

A spectator is asked to secretly print the name of someone, living or dead, on a sheet of paper. The performer divines the name!

The performer is 100% correct!

REQUIRES NO SPECIAL SKILLS!
UNIQUE AND SUBTLE!
NO ELECTRONICS!
NO CENTRE TEAR!
NO STOOGES!
NO SLEIGHT OF HAND!
GREAT QUALITY!
REASONABLY PRICED!

Harvey's material reads interestingly, but I can't find any reviews anywhere. If any of the suppliers have any info on this or other effects it may help sales if some further info is given. Not sure if this is a notebook, clipboard, or other type of device. Anyone have any insight into this new offering, or for that matter, any of his stuff.

Dealers like Saturn Magic, MOM, Penquin and Hocus-Pocus to name just a few who stock Rafts work should note that at the time of writing this there were 1837 views of this topic. Obviously a lot of people are interested in a review of Harvey Rafts work. Sales could go much better if someone with access to his material could give a better description of the effects and what comes with them.

I have to agree, so many Raft effects and yet zero reviews or presentation videos, why?
Use the FORCE Luke.

In the sales that all the shops run [at the same time for 1k+ products] there are usually a few Harvey Raft releases in them...

I have always wondered why there is nothing about any of them - anywhere

It's almost like he doesn't want to make any sales

As they seem priced quite high [for no info] - so you can't take a chance

£50 for this:

//
A volunteer is asked to select a number from 1 to 5,000,000 (five million). Using his selected number, he is asked to determine a Zener ESP symbol. The performer determines which ESP symbol the volunteer has selected.

The performer is 100% correct!
NOT A MARKED DECK!
NO SPECIAL SKILLS REQUIRED!
EASY TO DO!
VERY SUBTLE!
GREAT AUDIENCE REACTION!
GREAT FOR STAGE or CLOSE-UP!
REASONABLY PRICED!
//

err - how can you make an informed buy when that's all you get to go on?

maybe he's a genius and he's selling loads to guys who don't review them as they want these ideas to themselves... but that seems unlikely

has anyone on here bought anything by Raft

and do please give a quick review

Maybe I’m dense, but that reads like you are asking a participant to make a choice from a big number, narrow it down to 1 in 5, then you figure which 1 of 5 he picked. That’s not very impressive to me. Perhaps a performance video would show why there’s a big number chosen, but from the description it sounds pointless. Just pick an ESPcard.

Yeah, I agree - sounds kind of ridiculous...

Ha! You stole my line, John. Smile

Dan - Wasn't trying to be mysterious. I didn't want to discuss anything that might hint at methods in an open forum. Noticed that the user didn't have over 50 posts, so he doesn't have access to Inner Thoughts. Feel free to PM me for more info. Smile

A review on any Raft effect would be in the interest of all
