Looks great in the trailer. Seems too impractical. And UNSEEN looks better (at least in the trailer - I don't have it.). I'll pass, mainly due to the price.

An oldie but goodie is Ocular by Alakazam. Envelope instead of bill but appearance of card is equally fast/impressive and sounds like it’s a little more practical for real world

Thanks a lot for that, I had the idea of the routine and Rob Bromley designed a beautiful gimmick!

Wow!! Love this visual. Even if it’s just good for video it looks worth getting.

Well guys... I read all your notes above... an hour ago... because I have a problem... I just took delivery of implosion today... and and and...they kindof forgot to put the instructions in it or the link at least... I have no explanation... so in looking who I could lean on above it looks like none of you have actually bought it.. well I will tell you a bit here that am allowed... first after reviewing the trailer again that I only saw once it sure found it easy to figure out how it works and how to present it ...easy easy easy....the gimmick I don't feel is delicate at all...it should hold up... the visual is easy and just great....and reliable 100% of the time no chance of failure that I see. the visual production is all that is on the trailer...( I got this to try and fool my session guys.. an endless task and it will though you know and I know they will never ever admit it!!!)... so I guess I can tell you the visual is just that... a popping production to which you simply exchange it for the signed card as you drop it on the deck .. now I can hear you guys grousing that is an imperfect awkward moment that lessens things to put it on the deck in the left hand... well I am only 40 minutes or so with this thing and I will disagree... I just went through a week to get my guys with the Icarus effect by Christain Grace and he takes an old old move sharpens it up and ditches the gimmick effortlessly... well I will do the same here and in the same manner as icarus ditching it that is with the same set up. sooo. yeah the prop card hits the deck for a second you hand out the signed card and in almost that minute you are clean and ready for full inspection... in short the visual is worth it the clean up is a breeze and if you do it you will be like none other. I think this is really ok. and I haven't even tried it out in the field yet but I can't see any real real downside....if you accept the conditions which is really not too confining...if you are on the fence and maybe a bit more motivated about this write me privately here and I will tell you anything you want to know. in short I expect this thing to be rather easy to use and fun to perform.

It's well made and looks great, but the sound is quite loud. I would have a spectator snap or something activating the gimmick.

Ditto. I agree with everything you said. Unless I am in a very loud venue, I do not see using this.

I found a way to make it silent... Just hold it from above... it is absolutely quiet when you activate it top down
