Jamie,
Yes I do own it. It is incredibly sensitive. I like the hand gimmick as opposed to the ear gimmick. This is much better.

Moloko is awesome! So sensitive. Can be done as a "which hand" or a kurosuke type effect. The candy looks like a tootsie roll.
Really great!

Do you own this by any chance? I've been watching this for a while now but would love to here from someone who owns it.

Mine is not sensitive at all. I can barely feel it. I'm not sure if I'm doing something wrong but its hard to tell as the DVD isn't in English...not that I'm complaining but I just wasn't expecting that.

I received High Six and was wondering if anyone else is having a problem with the DVD being in Japanese only. I've tried to change the language on my DVD player but no joy. Once you view the set up then its pretty easy to understand but I feel that I’m missing some very important details because of the language. You will only need a few items, of course one being IT but nothing that you probably don’t have laying around the house. The trick itself is good. The setup only took 10-15 mins. max. including the “fine tuning” and once setup you could leave it..forever, as its out of the way until you need it. It would be easy to set this up in a few different locations around your house and be able to amaze at any moment. I like that you can take the bill and just walk away without any worry, and with good spectator management you could even allow the spec to take the bill. I haven’t checked out the bonus material, still trying to decipher the Japanese for the main trick.

Keep scrolling through the menu (to the right, I believe). You will find the explaination in English towards the end.

I assume Vino Sense and Moloko are the same, just different applications of the same gimmick. I have Vino Sense and am very disappointed in the reliability. Sometimes I can sense it, sometimes not at all. I've tried it in every possible orientation, even at extremely close proximity. Anyway, this is the only item from Spencer Tricks that I would give a thumbs down. High Six and Hornet are both good.

For Thumb Sucker you need an additional smoke gimmick which not included.

I ordered Moloko today. Kind of took a chance as I have heard mixed reviews. I saw a clip of Derren Brown on TV doing this but with a coin. It was very good. Derren really knows how to get the most out of an effect and make it Really Entertaining.

I got the MOLOKO. It's just what I expected. However I wish to get the same gimmick candy shape as shown in demo. We are not familiar with Totsie roll candy.

Well, I got Moloko 3 days ago. I wanted to wait till I could put some real time into it before giving my thoughts. At first I was disappointed. The gimmick was way too sensitive to be reliable. Sadly, three days later, I feel the same way. Not only is it too sensitive, sometime it just doesn't "happen". And this is just me sitting in my dining room. If you do this with actual spectators where you don't have complete control of the environment, I feel it would be unreliable. It works about 85% of the time, and that's not good enough for me. It's not a question of more practice, it's just too subtle to be practical. And you certainly don't want to have to go back to the spectators a 2nd or 3rd time. It would scream the method. I'm bummed. I really like the effect and therefore really wanted it to be reliable. I don't think it should have been put to market in it's current way.

Indo magic: they discuss on the dvd how to reshape the "candy". It's an odd dvd to navigate. I think the guy filmed it on his cell phone in his dorm.

Hi Carnac

Yes, they explain how to reshape, but there is disadvantage of using your own gimmick as he explained on the DVD.

I saw that on the DVD. They were just talking about the weight issue if I remember correctly. I don't think it's a big deal. Especially because each spectator is just taking one candy, so it's not like they are comparing candies. I think it's an easy fix. And also, it's not like people know "correct candy weight". They have better things to think about! lol

Yes it's the weight different, and he also explained the gimmick will be movingdown after a while. I also feel make the gimmick from regular candy will not lasting long. Frankly I never try make my own gimmick candy. But really I wish he give the same gimmick as shown on the video.
