Just thought I would chip in here,
I had the same tracking issue as it was the wrong number, I emailed the contacts address from the website and got a reply within a few hours from Aaron Hsing with the correct number which worked.
My tracking today with Royal mail (UK) has the item at my local depot and on its way to me today Smile
I may just be lucky but 5 days in not bad in the current climate.

Hope you all have a good holiday and receive your items soon.


Thank you for the information and update. I ordered on December 13 2020 and never received a tracking number. I just sent Aaron an email based upon the information you provided.

Thank you.
Michael


Aaron responded in 5 minutes of my email and provided a tracking number. It was shipped on December 15th and arrived at JFK airport today.

Just read through this thread. A few posters said that everything is examinable. before and after the effect. My understanding is that what actually does the work is not examinable. Yeah, I get it, use a switch, but that is not the same as examinable.

So, not having bought it, is the product examinable or not?

It’s not unless you switch it. It also says borrowed sharpie in the trailer which seems very misleading.

I still don’t get it. The only thing amazing about this is that you can balance a coin on the tip of a sharpie cap to begin with.

Well I like it.

To me, the magic with this starts a ways before you bring these out (or borrow them). This isn't a, "look what I can do with these objects" so much as a way to illustrate something after you're talking about it, and done as you scramble to "try" something. "In fact, look...Here," you say...patting your pockets, "I got an idea, I can show you, anyone have a coin or something? I wanna try this... "

To me this is a trick to fit a narrative when the narrative comes up deliberately or accidently versus a trick to demonstrate the trick itself. The whole, "part of something larger" thing.

Yeah, I think I like it.

Whether it's Einstein's "spooky action at a distance", your "dead uncle Charlie"or whatever the flavor of the day is, this can showcase that thing you're talking about for real with an experiment you try, and hope works, because you've seen this "weird sh*t" yourself. You wanna see if it'll happen again, cause nobody believed you when you saw something similar happen years ago... blah, blah, blah or whatever.

Of course, it will. Smile

I can't understand how someone can say having a coin hardly balanced on a pen cap fall is stronger than moving a timber.

Perhaps in a stage or even a parlor show. But in a close-set environment who carries a timber in their pocket? I think this can be a very nice and strong effect especially when combined with another psychokinesis type effect as a follow-up.

I used to do Psychokinetic Pen by Banachek and it went over well. To me this is another effect like that. Good enough effect for him, then good enough for me.

I think if you have it balanced on the cap for a while and then have the spectator wave their hand or (as in the video they showed) tapping a picture of the cap on a phone, and at that second the coin falls... that is pretty impressive. It's like any other similar PK effect. They do seem to go over much better than expected. But it's all in the performance really. The thing needs to stay balanced for a decent while, and then fall on cue to really sink in.

Who do you perform for? “Ok guys, we’re just going to observe that cap and coin for the next 10 minutes, ok?”

Put coin on cap, put it under glass. Do another effect in the meantime, then point back to the coin on the cap, ask someone to pretend "shoot" it... watch the coin fall off. Magic.

Agree Michael, this can be combined with some other things that will result in a very nice and magical set.

I ordered it, but yet to receive it, so this is strictly based off the info video, but I personally can see numerous ways to make this bewildering/entertaining. If you are worried about someone thinking you bumped the table, don't stand near it, or put it on a bar or countertop. Think a little outside the box.

Those comments were a bit of fun.
