Yeah brilliant Craig and letís hope that people stop bashing the likes of Gavin , my old mucker Pegasus and me for being honest in our opinions about rubbish . I love people who donít follow the crowd and say their opinion and you can take it or leave it , but so many suck up to the herd in the fear of upsetting someone . I never ever will and I am glad Iím not the only one and itís particularly nice when people with much more clout than me like Craig says it how it is without any fear too . All power to opinions good or bad whoever the creator is Gaz 😊

Just out of curiousity: When I see this correctly, this effect was released last month. How did you perform it in restaurants, pubs and walking down the boulevard? Where do you live?

More importantly why is there no live performance footage on the download or the trailer. Surely a live performance video would help.

An excellent question !!! and happy to answer.

1.The effect has been in the works for almost two years, but due to the pandemic that my country suffered, many manufacturing companies went bankrupt and several were suppliers of Tumi Magic. For that reason the launch was late.

2. There are two images in the video trailer where it was made in Blackpool with people around, also I would have loved to have uploaded live videos performing the trick, but it was recorded while we were still in quarantine in my country. We like to be transparent and not create deceptive tricks just to sell.

When we say that it is possible to do it in real life, it is because we can and we say it. When it is a trick only for social networks, we also say it. But if there are few people who do not feel safe to do it in real life despite the fact that it is a truconpars in real life ... we can do nothing. the confidence with which we perform a trick is important.

I am a "street and restaurant magician" and yes, I have performed it and will soon upload videos on my social networks ... but there are always Haters who will say that it is not real. Anyway ... We are an honest company and we only release products that have been tested. If you don't like them, don't buy it, but offending the work of an entire team ... it's from a person without neurons. Follow me on my social networks, if you want, and you can see various routines.
I hope you have fun.✌️✌️✌️

Is it possible to set it up so that a non-writing sharpie is produced from the 2nd box, and the third box is actually rolled up inside it?

Anthony at ĎMagicWorldí states, in his glowing review, that ďPatrick Kun loves it, of course, and thatís probably one of the things that makes it sell mostĒ.

Funny, as it has the opposite effect to myself. Lol.

Mr. Snake- it was a joke. I was referencing another item that's been causing a stir on here recently.

I don't think this product is for me, but the sincerity of your reply made regret being such a smart-ass!

This trick is just complete and total trash.

First of all why would you make packs of cards appear just to put them away. It makes no sense. Ans thatís just the start of the problems.

Itís a complete and totals up off and a fleetest example of whatís wrong with the magic community at the moment.

I reviewed it on the latest episode of my review show which went up tonight. I performed the trick as well but buyer beware - this trick is bottom drawer magic at best.

Hereís the link to the show. Any questions let me know.

First, you state it is trash like it is some sort of fact. Have some humility and insert the phrase "in my opinion".
Second, you keep saying "why would you make them appear to just put them away." Again, that is not the only option. Have some creativity and realize that another magician may opt to switch them.
Third, you say it is a "complete and totals up off", I assume you meant "rip off". Again, show a bit of humility and insert the phrase "in my opinion".

I'll grant you it likely isn't for everyone, but that is not what I recollect you saying. You just can't imagine that someone might be creative in their use for this. Sad.

Of course you are entitled to your opinion, but you state your opinions as if they are facts.

Well to be fair the fact ( in your opinion ) you are saying this goes to show that everybody knows itís only Craigís opinion he thinks itís trash then surely he is entitled to express his opinion just how he likes . Not your good self of course but if others cannot understand whatever terminology he uses itís just his opinion then they are very poorly educated in my opinion Gaz 😊

This is a discussion forum. We are discussing and giving opinions. I donít think I have to preface every post with Ďthis is my opinioní. I think thatís implied.

Are you saying every time I post about a product I should say thatís itís my opinion first?

Seems a bit strange to be honest but thanks for your input.

I understand what you are saying. I just think there is a difference between obvious "scams" and differences in opinion, and the appropriate "tone" for each. I think perhaps it is a matter of style. It reminds me of how people driving in a car will scream far more rude things from within the safety and perceived anonymity of their car, than how they would behave in person. Then, there are some who can be just as socially awkward in person as behind a shield.

I agree with you on keyboard warriors , but I certainly am no pushover in person and I am also sure Craig is not one either . In other words I am the same person face to face as I am on any of my reviews and comments I ever give on these boards or anywhere else . I would never hide ever in person and being like that and true to the core is how real respect is made in life imho . If someone gives me grief when driving like you mention ( I donít give any grief myself by the way ) I jump straight out of my van and trust me they always drive off immediately with normally an apology and a friendly wave every single time . I would never ever need a shield or ever hide behind one Gaz 😊

Gaz, you come across much more thoughtful and tactful than some. It's ok to have an opinion, it's ok to have strong opinions, but some people are just socially awkward and lack tact, and you are not one of them.

The Wizard Review is a good example of this. David Penn, Sean Haydon, and Wayne Fox all have VERY STRONG opinions, but they also have good social skills, and they know how to be entertaining without being abrasive.

Back to the topic at hand, While Triple Helix is probably not for everyone, just like EVERY single trick ever created, it can be a very powerful addition to a routine with two decks. I am planning on using it in a two deck routine where I take out one deck, start to describe the routine, implying the use of two decks, all the time holding my two hands as if I already have a deck in each hand, and then realizing I have only one deck. Then there is a humorous awkward moment of being one deck short, I produce the deck and then say: "Perfect, two decks and a sharpie." Another humorous awkward moment of realizing I don't have a sharpie. My right hand goes into the pocket for the sharpie, comes out empty, then the left hand goes into the left pocket and comes out with the sharpie and "same" decks. The routine then goes directly into a couple two deck routines. Never in that sequence would anyone say: "Wait, before you get the sharpie, I'd like to examine the boxes." In fact, I am working on a gimmick in my pocket so that they reach into the same jacket pocket and pull out their selected card later in the routine and the "only" thing in the pocket is their card.
