Anyone who can google can find this. Why the number of post have anything to do with this?
I found it and post it here. Now the Paypal buy now button on the site is disappear, so I think it is genuine, isn't it?
FYI, when you pay via Paypal, you can always check if the seller is legit.


Well lets see -

1. This effect has not YET been released. How did you obtain one please?

2. The # of posts does matter as the more we (cafe members) get to know you and your character and backgroud, the more trusted you become. This is all pretty normal isn't it? PayPal can take awhile to hassle with a refund.

So could you please answer how you obtained a unit? John Sheets like many creators experienced many knock-off of his original QB made in China and from James L Clark among others.

Why don't you introduce yourself?

Ahh - you say you found it and post it here. So this isn't your Energy Bender?

But posting a blind "link" from some unknown seller for a product that hasn't yet been released... may not be helpful as something doesn't add up here.

I email'd John but haven't got a reply as yet. Not even sure if he is mailing outside of the states. His other web site says he isn't. When you hit the paypal button it should have said, "you just sent $150 to John Sheets" Who came up as the receiver of your money Dan?

Hi Guys!


The website is legit. However, it wasn't suppose to be published quite yet, as it's still a work in progress, and is still a long ways from being finished!

I've just made a change, and took down the payment button for now. However, I'll go ahead and honor those orders that came through while the order button was up, as we're VERY close to it's release now. I've held off on taking any official orders yet, as I'm currently busy stuffing packaging/boxes, labels etc and wanted to wait until it was absolutely ready. It looks like I'll probably be ready to start taking orders and shipping them out towards the end of the week.

This item is finished by hand, and is very time consuming to produce, so it will be a very limited item. I believe that I'll have around 185 units available (minus about 5 that just now squeezed in an order by luck). I'll also need to do a final count, as I've lost count on exactly how many units I have, as some went out early for previews, and I've been painting more units as time permits.

If the EB gets enough interest and/or demand, I'll consider making more of them.

Watch here for an announcement about the official release, VERY SOON!!

Here's some updated info...


-Metal bending is one of the most amazing events someone could ever possibly witness, and its one of the most popular mediums in the magical arts arena.

Now Presenting...

From the creator of the highly acclaimed Quantum Bender....

The unique, one of a kind, all NEW "Energy Bender".
-Imagine being able to perform AMAZING metal bending on ANY of the THICKEST silverware, anytime, anywhere, and NOT being limited to the type of silverware used.
-With the Energy Bender your NOT limited to light weight, thin, and flimsy silverware!!
-This unique device bends that real thick silverware that you normally can't bend, even over your knee with two hands! It can easily bend a real thick fork, spoon, or even a knife. It can even bend the TINE of a thick fork with ease.
-Don't ever get stuck with a piece of thick silverware that you can't bend, ever again!!
-Basic Effect: A spectator writes her initials and draws a unique design on a fork or spoon, knife, or key, creating an interesting piece of art out of the object. The performer holds the object at his fingertips. It then suddenly begins to VISUALLY bend at the fingertips! The unique signed and drawn on, bent piece of silverware or key, is IMMEDIATELY handed to the spectator for complete examination! The object is so thick that its impossible to bend back! The permanently altered, one of a kind, bent piece of silverware or key quickly becomes a treasured souvenir. This effect will create those long lasting memories, and a story to be re-told over and over again!
-This incredible effect can stand alone, or it can make a perfect addition to any other metal bending routine.
-This AMAZING device can even do a Double Bend on BOTH the tine, and the neck of the fork, in a single motion at the exact same time!! This is really cool, as you get two secret bends in one motion, and two visual bends during one revelation. A bend is done on the tine and the neck at the same exact time, in the same gesture, all in one move., making for a mind blowing revelation!
-Now you can finish your routines with a bend or two on the thickest and most impossible items to bend!
-This device will bend and twist keys with ease too!
-It will also bend and twist other various metal objects of all kinds, bending just about anything that fits into the device! -Designed for use in real world situations.
-It's very universal and VERY easy to use!
-A must have for the serious Magician, Mentalist, Mystery Artist, Psychic Entertainer, or illusionist.
-Top of the line device, expertly CNC machined and precisely crafted from high quality stainless steel for a lifetime of use.
-Includes a Bonus training DVD, Including Amazing Eye Popping revelations, psychology and misdirection techniques, tons of insider info, tips and practice, and so much more!

Here's the trailer: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NpJOfL0k8xA

The Energy Bender is a perfect tool to have on hand for those moments when you get challenged to bend something REALLY thick. It's also a Perfect addition to any pre-existing metal bending routine that you may already do, and it would make a GREAT closing piece as well. You might start with all the cool bends that you already know with the light silverware, then introduce a handful of real thick stuff, that obviously can't be bent with TWO hands. It's handled, inspected, and spectators may even try to bend it. A piece of silverware of their choice is freely selected by the spectator. The spectator uses a Sharpie to sign or initial the silverware somewhere. This is usually really fun for the spectator as they also like to draw designs all over the piece, to make it a "one of a kind piece of art, and a very memorable experience". You then, to their amazement bend the TOUGHEST, most THICKEST silverware possible, and of course, you leave it with the spectator to remember for a very, VERY long time!

-This is an EXTREMELY LIMITED RELEASE!
-Order NOW to avoid disappointment!!
-Available ONLY direct from the creator, John T. Sheets.
Incredible Low Price! The introductory price is ONLY $150. USD, plus $10. shipping ($25. Int shipping)

Please PM or email me for availability.

Wow. Got this yesterday, and been playing with it a lot. I don't (yet) have a QB3, so can't fully compare, but this is a genius little piece of engineering! Works like an absolute charm, and is very easy to do. Apparently a very different bending mechanism than the QB, but the handling seems to be extremely similar.

I think some people are wondering (as I was) how deceptive it is. I haven't performed it for others yet, but from playing with it and viewing the DVD, I don't have any worries at all--it is imperceptible. Happens very quickly, quietly, and almost effortlessly, right under their noses. I LOVE this little beauty!! The DVD is super, shows plenty of handlings, and reveals. (And yes, the "two bends at once" thing is lovely!)

For this price, I can't imagine a better bargain...

Well I would say that the gimmick will be extremely familar (not that different) to anyone who owns or has owned a QB - but the method of bending and the creation of the gimmick is a different animal if that makes sense.

Buyers will love this I think.

In addition to the many on the included DVD?

That's tough - maybe liquid metal #1 or Psychokinetic silverware for overall concepts in the big picture.

I am good with keys, have my own patter well worked out. However, silverware I would really like to get additional routines to view for inspiration.

Also, I've had several people notify me about my inbox here on the Café being full and unable to receive PMs. So, I've emptied it out for those who've been trying to reach me here, you may try again!


Thanks again!!

Just received the Energy Bender. I'm not a metal bending guy but it's very well made and the DVD is very comprehensive with live performances. So maybe I now will be a metal bender. Natural movements to bend heavy cutlery...

My Energy Bender arrived very quickly and was eager to find out how good this mega piece really is!

I'm super impressed with the precision craftmanship put into these devices. You can very clearly tell that a LOT of work and thought that has gone into this devise. I havan't checked out the DVD yet, but judging by other people's thoughts, I'm sure it'll be of the highest standard.

John and co, you've done me very proud! A very first class, down to earth guy to work with, backed up with very high standard gizmos!!

Catch up soon!

Best,

Neil.
