What is the best Pen through Dollar effect? Is this a recommended trick or a "Pass"?
Thx

Hello Richard,
No! never pass this effect up! It's one of the best carry at all times close-up effect!
In my estimation, the best is the "Executive Pen" by Magic Makers. You can check it out at: http://www.magicmakersinc.com
Most dealers carry it!
Do a search on Pen through bill at the Café for all revues and comments.

I agree with MagicCarisio that the "Executive Pen" is the best. I'm a police officer that is assigned to a school and I have two with me at all times. I use them as regular pens and the kids love em.

I did this at a restaurant gig (I got a free dinner too)(not from the trick, but just because I was a performer) and while I was eating a guy on his way out stopped and said "Do you think you could tell me how the pen in the dollar trick works? I'm an engineer and I'm going to be up all night thinking about that one!" I was speechless (mainly because of the caesar salad in my mouth), but I didn't have a witty comeback or anything. I of course didn't tell him how it was done, but he was still "wowed"

Pen-etration is fantastic...very cheap...very visual and if all you want to do is the pen through dollar then you're sorted it's great!

I only have two different types, the B2 Bomber, and the Stealth Pen (which I have two of). The B2 Bomber has a bigger penetration (more of the pen appearing to puncture the bill), but I prefer the Stealth. It looks more natural, is easier to clean up, and is easier to handle. I don't see any flaws in it that would make me look for a better pen, plus, the Stealth Pen is pretty reasonably priced.

I have the john cornelious pen, and whilst it is excellent I am thinking of changing to the stealth as it a lot more natural looking pen

One question.
I just got my executive pen in the mail, now there are at least TWO different types out there or maybe I am wrong, let me explain.
I have seen this advertized at $30 then on other website at $24 and finally I got mine for $14.
Plus some of them come in blue box, some in black.
I got blue box with sticker "made in china"
Why such a difference in price do you think, and are there owners of black box pen I could compare notes with? Are some of those knockoffs?

With my order I got a free gift- perfect PENetration.
Honestly You need both, they are both great, Executive well looks executive, perfect pen is something you see in WalMart. I don't know which one I will use more, I just got them so can't say.
Executive is examinable to a certain point, Perfect pen they can take apart and find zero.
With both I would say, direct attention to the dollar bill not the pen but it doesn't matter if they want to see the pen as well.
Perfect pen also looks like it can write much longer because of lenght or refill inside, but Executive is one piece of wonderful Chinese craftsmanship.
I was very pleasantly surprized when I got those.

One question, how do you use them as regular pens, I wouldn't want to run out of ink too soon. Or more importantly how do you change the cartrige once it's empty?

I perssonally would'nt use any pen through's, as a writing pen, only for the effect...it should then last for many years.

Running out of ink is not a problem. Personally, I don't want to carry 2 pens and switch.

There are several pens that do not require any switch. There is also an overpriced pen at Magic Max, but the gimmick is so strong it is worth the money.

Do you guys find a stronger gimmick better. If so why?
Initially I found it easier to work with not so strong gimmick, but I just got it so...
Executive pen is twice as potent as Perfect PENetration . I am not sure yet if that's a good thing.

I think a stronger one is better. Once when doing Perfect PENetration, I pulled the pen out of the bill and... well, guess what went flying? That wasn't too fun. Also, one of my moves is difficult to set up because of the weakness of the gimmick. It seems to me that it used to work better when I first got it, but not anymore.

Richard,

If you´re still doing your market research, have a look at the Sharpie Through Anything. Contains a very strong gimmick, which is important for the above stated reason and because it produces a devastating ripping sound the moment you withdraw the pen from the bill. Jaws drop. Also, you can easily transition it in and out, with the enclosed regular Sharpie, in combination with so many other effects that require a permanent marker, i.e. cards.

Regards,

José

I have both the Executive and Doug Edwards Wonder Pen-tration, and though both are good, I prefer the Edwards version......

Wonder Pen-tration by Doug Edwards...Great pen! is it still available? I believe I read
somewhere it's not manufactured any longer...I could be mistaken.
