Anyone have any knowledge of this? Looks great to me but I've been burned the last couple of purchases buying into hype so I'm wary.

Looks great and I'm intrigued but reminds me of my gonzo still in the box

Looks bad. Reminds me of subterfuge and bandaids.

I don't get it ... There's already so much gimmicks to vanish items on the market , is there a real need to add on even more every few months ?

I'll stick with my retention vanish unless I see something extraordinary .

A retention vanish doesn't work with short sleeves. I only wear t shirts so that's a deal breaker for me.

I wish more research would go into naming magic products. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z69QOHKNa64

You could do a retention vanish naked. Do you mean it does not work because you are still left dirty in one hand?

I agree Stucky.

Just ordered, it looks like its a better handling than gonzo and cheaper. Will report back after playing around with it. Fingers crossed!

I agree Stucky.


Lol, sorry I wasn't reading closely. I was actually referring to utilities like Gonzo where you need cover to use.

In the video on youtube I'm sure I saw the gimmick as he tried to show his hands were empty.

Well done. You deserve a round of applause from everyone.

I'm sure I sure saw a force being done on " Force of Will by Dave Hooper " as he tried to let the audience pick a card !!!



Jk , Dave did a good job on forcing .

I have it!

Had it a couple of weeks and I have to say I love it.

Now, I'm not a worker, just a performing hobbyist (monthly stage show and lots of street/cafe stuff) but this thing will never leave your side. I will absolutely be using this in close-up work.

Fancy doing chop cup and want to use that coffee cup (paper or china)? Do it, it will fry them, especially anyone that "knows what you are doing". I've started using it alongside my PK ring to allow me to use either hand (now that FRIES magi when you suddenly stop using your ring hand...) Think Craig Petty's Chop'd or Axel Hecklau's Just a Cup.

Yes there might be a flash on the YouTube, but we all know that real life is very different from video. Event Horizon is not invisible, but with proper handling and basic presentation and misdirection it might as well be. You really can handle anything you want naturally, I made dinner with mine in place earlier. Just because.

No wires, pulls, if its there then you have no get ready either. Perform in any clothing, or lack of, you want.

Vanish, transpose (we've already come up with a transposition version of that matchbox effect), hold out, PK effects, impromptu chop cup - it's *** good. I've even started using the belt clip for another effect.

Like I said, I'm just a busy hobbyist, I'm sure you workers will have a host of devices to compare it against, each with it's own particular issues. I haven't found one with Event Horizon yet.

That's one good review but I'd love to see some more.
Anyone?

Thanks videoman.

Yes, I know I haven't posted much, but I'm not a new user. I've been lurking and reading and researching here for almost 2 years.

No, I don't know anyone at Handcrafted Miracles personally, other than through the Event Horizon owner FB page, where Dan Frecks has been very helpful.
