I think they put the decimal in the wrong place...

I think you’re right. What concerns me is that the gimmick is easy to remake which can only mean one thing. Lol.

Hondo sent this to me a few months ago to do a video with it on my Instagram. That being said, my thoughts here are unbiased by that and contain my honest opinions. What you get is a precision made gimmick, along with the necessary parts to make your own gimmicks. He teaches two versions on the project. A card through card and a card through bill. While similar, both gimmicks differ slightly. The gimmick you’re provided with is very well made, and is a great guide to go by if you want to make your own. The download is clear and easy to follow, even though it is subtitles. While the price may feel on the higher end, when you see the method, you’ll understand that the thinking behind this is very clever and you’re paying for the thought and time that went into this. While this is definitely aimed at social media, you do get live performances for spectators, and with practice you’d be able to do it in the real world. Overall, I’m very happy with this product. Ideally, if this was my product, I would’ve priced it a bit lower, but I wouldn’t be mad if I had purchased this at the existing price.

Sorry, way to much for what the effect is, IMO. Even if it's well built, it's still a simple quick effect that most will realize how it's done.

Now strictly for a social media ad, possibly of you had $50.00 burning a hole in your pocket. I believe this will be one of those effects that becomes heavily discounted later on due to the lack of sales.

Again, just my opinion.

This has been done on a ton of social media videos and I am sure they want to capitalize on all the kids with their parent's money who want to do the same trick everyone else is doing.

I'm holding off for the $50 precision made thumb tip...

At 0:46 the card has been post-edited; rather poorly. It caught my eye during the first watch, and when I go frame by frame it's obvious. How is that acceptable in a trailer?

I don't see any change or quick jump there - is it visible on the youtube video? looks like he's covering a bit with the fingers but I don't see any post-editing

I just got this. and the gimmick is poorly made, to say the least.

it works for the camera but I would not pull this out in if an actual person is next to me

Interesting, the review at Penguin Magic is quite positive - maybe theres a variation in quality

I have to disagree with you on this one. My gimmick was well made and I've performed it in person multiple times and every person has loved it. This is an unbiased review as I purchased Intersection with my own money.

Mine is well made but I wouldn't perform this too close to the spectator.

Yeah I see it too. During the card though bill, if you watch it in slow motion, there are quite a few cuts there where his finger suddenly teleports.
