Great idea 1KJ and I can see how well that would work . I have built a gimmick into a couple of my suits myself that switches decks or anything really where the gimmicked deck or whatever ends up in the lower side jacket pocket and a regular deck etc is found in the pocket I just ditched the gaff in . The spectator can even remove the regular deck as the inner pocket velcros itself shut so all seems as it should seem Gaz 😊

I would just say though that the wizard product review is absolute rubbish compared to the days when Craig was on it imho . I think David Penn is a truly wonderful sleight of hand magician but has no charisma or charm whatsoever . Craig was by far a country mile the better half there and the dog was more entertaining than David Penn . Thatís why Craigís reviews shows are so so popular now imo Gaz 😊

What a shame, keep reading people who do not have humility and believe that they know everything because they have a very high Ego. And no, it is not implied, there are people who take it in general because you have followers who "trust" you, but made you believe someone you are not. Nothing creative, you are just impulsive. Also, you dare to make a video parody of the trailer. Apparently and in "My opinion" with people like you, who think they are perfect, they are the most envious. Learn to value what didn't come out of your mind my friend. Do not offend, criticize with reason. people like you, this is the reason the world is full of hatred and envy. IMO xD



Hey man! Thanks for the reply!

ĎHow dare Ií? Who do you think you are? Gods gift to magic. The Honest Trailers are done as a joke - Iíve even made two about my products. Many creators have contacted me saying they thought they were hilarious when Iíve featured their product. You reaction says more about you than anything else.

I Ďtrashedí your product because I really donít like it. To be clear itís less about the product and more about the quality of the instructions. You didnít explain a routine. You didnít explain how to manage the angles or the audience. Your didnít offer presentational ideas. And there was no live performance footage despite obviously having it pre COVID. IT felt like it was rushed to market. And donít get me started on the arts and crafts that I didnít think were needed. I could go on but Iím sure youíve seen my review.

The bottom line is I paid for this product with my own money. I am a customer and as such I am allowed to review the product however I see fit. You say anyone that gives you a bad review has an ego and doesnít show humility. That is the most egotistic attitude I have ever seen. Hereís an idea, listen to the negative reviews (and there are lots of negative reviews not just me). Listen to what people are saying and take it on board and learn from it. Offer a better product next time. Like I said part of the problem iOS when you release a product we have to look at the total package. Including the instructions that come with it.

I really think you need to keep your ego in check. And as for everything you have said about me let me ask a question. I produce 16 videos a week for magicians. I do this for free and several of these videos I could charge for but I donít. I am trying to provide magicians content that can help them with no agenda at all. As far as I can see you produce and sell magic tricks for money. And yet you try to paint me as the bad guy?

Try harder next time is my advice.

People need to have their ego in check these days.

creators, community managers, even customers

no one is "higher" than another.

everyone needs to give and take constructive feedback properly and not get too sensitive about it.

1. creators think they are better since they created something people buy but some products are ****. so get over yourself.

2. community managers threaten other people because you are the moderator or host of a large Facebook group. it just shows your character is low. your community is not a bargaining chip to get what you want.

3. Customers..you are not almighty god even if you pay for it.

For sure man! I don't have nothign with you.
Sure you have many years in magic. I am 8 years old and I have seen many humble people. I have seen other great reviews from people who give negative opinions but not OFFENSIVE LIKE YOU DID. You have every right to say what you want, but before being a magician, an artist, you must be a person and think a little beyond the creation of a product. I'm not upset, I shouldn't be. I only feel sorry that there are people without neutral, negative, but neutral opinions, you speak as if you were an expert. Of course I listen to people and try to improve every day as a magician, as a creator and as a person. If you were offended, it was not my intention. This is just a text, you can not express feelings.

I only expressed my opinion regarding your vulgar opinion without knowing the events. Many things can be misinterpreted in a text. We don't know each other, but sure a beer and talking about life could be more fun. I am sure YES!. Better if it's a tequila or a vodka.
Thanks Craig. if I like your comments or not.
Thank you Smile

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

Snake,
Some friendly advice. You will absolutely be miserable in magic if you aren't able to accept the advice, the critique, the good, bad, ugly etc.

I have to say. The trailer and Murphys to say "Everyone at Blackpoool Loved this and wanted one" is a HUGE statment! And obviously a complete lie. Might not be your fault on that one.

There are numerous that do not like this.
Learn from this. Take ALL advice! Learn from it. Grow.

Step back and take a hard look at yourself. It's hard to do, but will help you.

While you're about it Snake, why not consider contributing something useful for others on here (Magicians Helping Magicians?); instead of using this forum simply as a platform for promoting a poor product; attacking a very honest reviewer and blowing smoke up your own rear end?

That's the problem with kids today.....they live in their own little dreamwold of (un)social media; and can't take it when the grown-ups tell it as it is.

Have te reason. I take all your coments to be better like magician and person.

surely they raised me differently. one thing is "constructive criticism" and another is "offensive criticism, insulting and making fun of it like a piece of ****" This last one I will never take. If you don't like me, PERFECT, it's not for everyone. But you have to be educated like other reviwers in making negative comments without the need to offend. Anyway, I'm here in this life to laugh, I never take things personally. I learn from you as a person in the real world, not magical.

😉😉😉😉 TEKILAA 🍻🍻

Did anyone elsehave issues with the gimmick ink smearing? It seems they were screen printed insteqd of being boxes and that leads the to the ink smearing rather quickly. The shop owner is supwr nixe and sending me a second one. Hopefully the gimmick was fixed.

Ripped my gimmicks apart and made some out of my own boxes. Honestly I think the 1 deck production is workable, but the 2 is pretty impractable. Hopefully the replacement gimmicks I get have better craftmenship and allow me to do the production as shown.
