There is still a little downside regarding the "noise".

Thank you for your sincere perception, maybe each version sounds a little different

I strongly hope that a slower handling can reduce this significantly - real test will tell

Perhaps...
I played a bit more with it and followed Madison's advice. Indeed there is a way to make the noise insignificant but I need to practice a little more to look more natural and relaxed.

Looks like what MW did was to improve on the Enchanted Rings by making a smaller box and making the magic happen much more easily. Fantastic!

I was disappointed with the Enchanted Rings because the box was too large for my taste and the mechanism was okay but not quite satisfying.

This new release addresses both of the issues I mention above.

Regarding any noise...even if there is some noise (proper handling should eliminate that), it is the magic taking place so not an issue IMO.

I am thinking that most everyone who bought this will be pleased.

Indeed !
The more I play with, the more I feel pleased finally.
I should have played a bit more with it prior sharing my first thoughts...

As always, GREAT video!!!!!!

Just too obvious for my likings...
My daughter (12) was watching too, and immediately knew. NOT that I base any effects on her perception of course!!!

I have too many other ring effects that I like much better than this version.
And as stated before.... also tired of the "diamond shape inlays". I'm weird...

Not a bad release at all! Just not one for me this time, and that's ok.

Well, if you don't like the look of it, already own several similar effects, and believe it wouldn't fool even a little girl, I guess you made the right choice not wasting $300 for it!

I can't afford every release but I can hardly wait to receive this one!

I really like this. It's the first time I ordered directly from MW and was blown away -- placed my order Tuesday, got a notice that it was shipped from Thailand Wednesday, and received it in the US last evening!

It's funny how people's brains work. Some tricks that are supposed magician foolers don't fool me at all. Then others that everyone seems to be able to figure out mystify me completely. So just because it didn't fool one 12-year-old girl doesn't mean it is no good. It works in the same general way I figured but I got the details completely wrong.

As far as sound -- it's not bad but I have so far been unable to make it completely silent.

Madison -- I would love to know how you are able to remove the front cover before you remove the sword because I have not been able to do that.

After receiving mine and having a day to examine and experiment I am more convinced than before that Edward Massey should have been given a credit for the nexus of the idea that led to this Magic Wagon method. Massey's AmazeRing Box is clearly an inspiration for the "works."

I think some are taking my comments in that I think this is a bad release. Absolutely NOT my intention at all! So I apologize. it is not bad at all!

MW releases exceptional products every month! Amazing that they do this and I appreciet them very much! They do get paid very well for their efforts too.
But that doesn't mean that I (or others) will want each and every one and that I (or others) will like each and every one.

I don't like corvettes. If I won one, I would sell it immediately. Well,,, not true. I would test drive around the DC beltway (in about 10 min LOL) But they are extremely awesome cars and by all means, are very popular and have many that want and own them... not me.
I like iPhone. Does NOT mean that android phones are bad at all. They are both EXCEPTIONAL devices and I am still amazed and very thankful that they exist and I can choose which one that is best for MY needs and tastes.

I enjoy performing for friends and family and co-workers etc.
I often perform (or in this case watch) magic for my daughter and also my son. They are MY choices for helping me decide on what I will enjoy and perform. That's just MY way of enjoying magic.

This is NOT a bad release at all. Do I like it for ME. Nope. But I hope and I know that others will enjoy and perform theirs very well and get some excellent reactions and enjoyment. And that is awesome!

I have been a MW fan for many years. Always will be.
Maybe that is why I am getting somewhat bored with the same wooden design (Diamond inlays that seem to be in so many Asian products) and same metal plates etc. Not bad. But just the same....


Hoping that MW is able to start expanding the creative juices and branch out using different wood, finishes, styles, etc.
I kind of think about some of the Gemini Artifact products. I think MW could do something similar and start a new era of product types...

Like for this release. Would be really cool, to have an aged wood design. And a sword that was an ancient relic from the past. And an aged "rusted" ring or even an old ancient rusted Chinese coin?
No More Diamonds!! LOL

I suspect that some early detractors are openly negative to slow down the sales, so it gives them some extra time to find the cash and press the buy button...

Well, possibly I suppose. Here are some other possibilities which I am calling the TOP 10 REASONS not in any particular order....

1- they may want to see a demo first
2- it takes a while to convince the missus that you need it
3- making decisions is excruciatingly painful
4- they did not hear about the new release for a variety of reasons
5- they belong to a cult which does not allow for purchases before they are approved by the cult leader
6- they are checking their toolbox to see if they have what they need to remake it
7- they are measuring their magic prop area to see if it will fit
8- they are waiting to hear from their psychic advisor to let them know if they will like it
9- they broke their prescription glasses so are waiting for new ones so they can read the instructions
10- their computer is down so they cannot order it yet

And here are two bonus reasons...

11- they requested a certain wood grain complexity from MW and are waiting to hear back
12- they are trying to decide if they should get the new MW release or a supply of designer masks

14 - They wait until the availability is below 10
15 - They miss a glossy scratch free surface
16 - The hearing aid is set too sensitive

I actually changed my mind.
Was definitely not to detract for sure. MW pieces are readily available after releasing and for many years.
This one is no different.

I have some ideas on how to change the look on this one.

Plus,
I have major ADHD and PTSD. So yeah.
We can say

17. ADHD
18. PTSD

Did you hear about the guy who delayed buying the new MW release because he did not feel like traveling all the way to Thailand to pick it up?
