I was a little bewildered at Chained as well. But then I ran through it a few times and thought it was pretty cool. I'll be giving it a test run during the holidays to see how well it plays to the masses.

But still no video as documentation promises...my queries to martinka go unanswered, which is really, REALLY annoying

With their first release in April, Martinka is two months behind. Not a huge deal but it would be nice if they communicated a little better. I'm not sure if they have run out of ideas or the venture didn't make the money they expected or some other reason but the club seems to be less than it was in the beginning.

Can anyone comment on the examinability of Nailed? The comments state it's hard to get loose (which is great in my opinion in regards to examinability), but I was wondering about it "lining up" properly? (don't want tip what I'm guessing is the method, but I've had other gimmicks that look "off" if examined closely. It would be worth it for me to pick one up for $35 if it's good, as I've had fun reactions with my ungaffed gimmick & switch in the past

Got the newest release today. As with all the releases thus far, the effect is certainly unique. My gaffs are well made and fully examinable. This one ends with an impossible object that can also be examined. Not a killer effect by any stretch, and there is a wonky phase that looks unnatural, but certainly a workable effect. Fun but not nearly as good as Chained.

I see this "Update - December 24, 2015

Release 8 is nearly complete and we will begin shipments next week. We this release we are exploring a very different premise, it's called confusion and we hope that you like it! Ted"
mine shipped yesterday.... Is this the effect you're referring to emeyers99? Smile
Pay it forward

Does anyone have any info on Ted Bogusta?
He's credited as the creator of most of the Martinka club releases.
I'm not familiar with the name and just curious to know more about him.
It would probably make for a good article for Magic or Genii magazine.

Anyone else have release 8 yet? Not my fav but ok. I agree that Ted seems to be the creator of most of the releases thus far. Tough to come up with one original gaff let alone 6 or 7.

Let's see... I first sent payment on Dec 29 but haven't received anything. Wonder if I missed this release.

Checked out all the videos. Some clever ideas. The one I was most intrigued with was KFC coin. If I wanted to score one of those sets would posting a WTB post in the "Tricks & effects for sale or trade..." forum be the appropriate thing to do? Looks like its sold out on the Martinka site.

I got the newest release and find it kind of fun. The only issue I am having is making the first "Penny Stick" look realistic. It's not easy handling it without it moving. Wondering if a bit of wax might help? Hmmm. The other awkward moment is when you switch the penny for the dime. Why did the penny suddenly release so easy and why is this not done so the audience can see? Looking forward to seeing their video when it is released.

Perhaps I am overthinking it. And I have performed it for two folks and both were fooled and enjoyed the illusion.

Unfortunately, I had to cut my budget back a bit so this will be my last release for a while. I'll miss the monthly fun!
