Thanks, mikenewman Smile

Hope to clear up a few questions here:

Durability: The gimmick is VERY well made. With proper use it'll last almost forever. I can't see this gimmick wear out easily unless you go crazy and out of your way, and want it to break.

Angles: As for angles, I would say that the routines offered with Phantom are "angle proof", only with one specific effect you'll want to be "aware" of a certain aspect which is nothing major at all in terms of angle issues or practicality.

Practicality: This is designed to be a worker. Yes, you can easily perform this ANYWHERE in your act: in the middle, end or beginning. No set-up or awkward unnatural handlings here.

The possibilities are only limited by your imagination -the more creative you are the more effects you're able to create using this gimmick!

Let me know if you have any questions and I do my best to answer them the best I can.

Peter

I have "known" you for a long time Peter, I knew you would answer... Smile
Still using Ghost Tag, it still works great! Teens actaully enjoy it the most. And older kids (6-12), so I guess I should say 'All the kids are enjoying it'!

Anyways,
This looks great! I have had a few "haunted" decks, but this looks and sounds great.
On my list....

Thanks again for your responses, we all appreciate it

Mike

Well, I hope this comes with streaming tutorial. So there's a chance penguin can send it with flat-packed.



I understand your point, but it should be downloadable not just a stream

Hey Guys -
Patrick From Murphy's here.

I think this is one of those products that everyone is going to want once they know how it works. It's basically self working, you can apply it to so many different routines/effects.

Borrowed items? no problem! no body hook-ups, etc. this is really a cool 007 type thing.

Great work Peter!

Can't wait to read the first impression/review on it ... I'm very curious about the "get ready" to make these miracles happen, but since we're talking about Peter Eggink here, I'm pretty confident.

Patrick is spot on here. Even if you play with magic for your own personal fun and never perform, you will love the gimmick, it's genius. If you do perform, then I'm sure you will be using this at gigs!

So! Phantom! God, the trailer got me excited. I was lucky enough to have Peter send me a unit, and in the meanwhile, get to check out the streaming/downloadable tutorial video that accompanies the gimmick. And my initial thoughts are - this is AWESOME!

The gimmick hides in plain sight and would never be picked up on my the spectator. It is a very James Bond style utility which allows you to really perform those classic gimmicked card effects with a borrowed and examinable pack of cards. You start and end clean and you can hand the deck straight to the spectator to examine to their hearts content. It looks like it should last for almost forever with due care, however I will comment on the quality of the gimmick when I receive it (not that I doubt it's quality).

The download goes over a few ideas using this gimmick. There is a rising card, in which a card is selected, signed and returned into the deck, which is then placed in the box. Then under your complete control, the card rises out of the pack, slowly and beautifully. You are then completely clean and can hand out the card, deck and box out for examination.

Next was a haunted pack, which I absolutely loved. The pack is placed onto your palm and with no finger movements, the pack cuts slowly to the selected card.

Next was the Genie in a Bottle effect, in which a borrowed and signed bottle unscrews itself and falls to the floor. I loved this abastract effect, it is unexpected and you could really play this up to be huge and spiritual (if that's your thing). Once again, you end completely clean and can give the bottle right back to the spectator.

Also covered on the DVD, is a way to vanish a coin (or any other small object) using the gimmick.

The download is very well produced and Peter teaches everything clearly and methodically, including recaps after the explanation of each effect. Absolutely no issues here.

So if you are on the fence, I would say go for it. This is one of the coolest methods I have seen in a while, and you can get crazy creative with this. So James Bond, so usable and so darn sneaky!

I will post my video review, complete with performances, when I receive my unit. I hope this helped some people out contemplating the purchase of Phantom Smile

Imagine using this and smoke suddenly appear from inside the bottle after the cap is open.. And then you reach the smoke and take the spec's signed card from the smoke. Hmm..

Nope, set up is done right in front of the spectator and its invisible.

The video has me hooked. I will be picking one of these up soon. The bottle trick will be perfect for a spirit effect while doing walk around.
