Yes, It's now available at Penguin. Looking forward to an 'in hands' review before I order this. I like the effects and think it will be a 'lady pleaser' for sure.

Here is my review:

Quantum Angel by Paul Harris
Retail price: $34.95
Video length: over 1 hour


This effect is like a 4D version of Card-Toon. With this one, spectators can take out the message from the little envelope. You are not limited to reveal their chosen card. The message can really be anything (eg. words, drawings...) that fits onto the piece of paper. You get a lot of normal paper in two sizes. If you run out, you can use any kind of paper, so you don't really need refills. There are many ways that you can perform with the supplied gimmicks. The video teaches how to show spectators both sides of the cards before you perform. The move is easy to learn, and I think it would enhance the effect. They also show a way to make the envelope fly out!

Similar to Card-Toon, it might be a little difficult to perform it for a big crowd, because you need to make sure the spectators can see the animation at the right angle. Chris Turchi and Brandon David mentioned in the video that once these are gone, they won't be able to reprint. So, be gentle with your cards!

Is it difficult to learn?
The video shows several routines that you can use. If you can riffle a deck, you are ready for at least one of the routines. Other routines are not difficult too, but you do need some time to practice.

Do you need to buy anything extra to perform?
You will need a regular sharpie to perform one of routines. It is not required for other routines.

Any arts and crafts involved?
You do need to do something to the sharpie for the routine I mentioned above, but it's really easy. It shouldn't take more than 2 minutes.

What is the difference between Card-Toon and Quantum Angel?
The main difference is that Card-Toon is a 2D effect, and Quantum Angel is a 4D effect. Also, Quantum Angel is not as thick as Card-Toon. I say it is about half of the size.

Do you need the band around the deck to perform this effect?
Yes for one of the routines.


I really love this effect, and I don't think I can go back to Card-Toon. If you like Card-Toon, you will DEFINITELY like Quantum Angel~
Please let me know if you have any questions. I will try my best to answer without revealing the secrets.

Hi All

I keep getting this question..so wanted to clarify again.
You can do a live real time prediction of any name or initials.
There is no preshow/preset. The name/initials that appear on the note in the
tiny angel envelope is the same name/initials that the spectator mentioned a moment ago!

It's a super easy perfect beautiful method that invisibly happens during the normal actions of the effect.

Hope this helps.

Proberly going to leave it as I don't like the refill type of think, plus need a few more gigs coming in to keep spending out, but it is a cool efect for sure.

Interesting that 'when they're gone, they're gone' - Leftover old inventory re-worked. Bicycle no longer making back design gaffs...so sounds like, if this appeals to you, get one sooner rather than later eh ?


When I heard that, the first thing that came to my mind was...

The guy who usually sells his "out of stock" effects at the same price as retail (or sometimes even higher) at the Tricks for sale section will buy a few of these for sure. 😂

I just received this. This is a worker. I had guessed the handling because this is very similar to "Anything" by Ben Williams with the added Card Toon Bonus.
I think the cards will last a long time as long as they go back in the envelope. It is very easy and will go in my set right away.
You receive a lot of extra "gimmicks". One thing I wish would have been added are extra force cards. But I'll make more for sure.

If you like what you see on the trailer, you will like this. WYSIWYG!

Can't wait to use it this weekend!!!

To answer the refill question. The only regular refill needed is the small note papers. But these
Are just normal paper. So if you go through the supplied note papers..you can use any thin stock
Paper of any color that you'd like. So almost no extra costs here for you.

Got this & love it.

Obviously been well thought out & worked by genius P. Harris & his team.

Really wish Paul would appear briefly on these dvd 's now and again as he is great( Please Janet just for a minute or so ha)

The only fault with mine is one of the 2 envelopes is stuck together so I can't get the message in, so hopefully there will be replacement kits in the future.

Worked tonight & even though it is easy to do I didn't do it as easy still needs rehearsal.

Will be using it though from tomorrow & all over the weekend.

Great release rom a great team which I will work.

This is nuts! Going to keep posting until this is clear. We are still
Seeing dealer's ads for this that say Quantum Angel
Is not a real time prediction..just a way
To reveal a preloaded message. This is not true!!
The big deal here is that any name or word
Called out will appear in the mini envelope. No preshow or preset. This is a real deal
Live impossible prediction of any name!!

Only thing I can imagine here is that some dealers
Are watching the first beginners routine in the tutorial
And not going into the feature effect..which is the real time
Name prediction.

So please spread the word! This name prediction is such
An astonishing thing it would be s shame to miss this.

How can people miss that? This is one of the great things that you can do with this effect~

This is devious, love it! It took me just a few minutes to work out a handling that resets very quickly, so perfect for table hopping.

I have the original version of this from well over 15 years ago that had a ton of preprinted names for use on the final revelation..... just curious as to how the envelope improves this from the original?
May your darkness come quickly
