When Morgan first told me he was releasing his routine on DVD, I was shocked and at the same time very happy to hear the news. There are a lot of skeptics in the magic community, because there is a lot of metal bending material out there. Yes, I agree, there IS a lot of metal bending material out there. And not all of it is absolutely the same. Everyone has a different handling and a different style and different subtleties. Perhaps the amount of moves you will learn on Morgan’s video is not quite as large as the amount of moves you will learn on Banachek’s DVDs and Videos or Patrick Kuff’s DVD, but what you will learn is a solid routine with incredible misdirection that even the person too afraid of performing metal bending will be able to pick up within a month (if one practices enough.)
That being said, Morgan’s routine is one of the most amazing routines I have ever seen in my entire life. It has fried EVERYONE that has ever seen it. In this routine, the tines bend, the fork itself bends 2 times, and there is a very gutsy corkscrew bend that will BLEW me away. The beauty of Morgan’s routine is that he shows us that there is nothing to be scared about when doing metal bending.
What you will learn on this DVD:
Tine bend.
3-tine bend (My favorite phase of the routine)
Corkscrew bend (Morgan subtlety makes this quite different from Banachek’s)
In your face bend (the spectator basically sees the fork MELT right in front of their face)
L-shape bend (INCREDIBLE as well)
Fork you Fork (This you just have to see!!! Great way to handle hecklers.)
Morgan’s Key Bend (This is quite hard, but NOT impossible…ladies and gents, forget your gimmicks at home!)
Corkscrew Tine Bend (This is an awesome little extra you could add onto your routine that will FRY your audience even further.)

Now, as far as the material itself, it is VERY good that this is a DVD and not a video, because most magicians will want to skip. There is around 25 minutes of live performance footage. Overkill perhaps, but a very useful tool for those of us that are afraid of metal bending – this actually shows us different situations and how to deal with them as well as proving this can be done anywhere anytime without being busted.
Sometimes, less is more…but Morgan, as you will see for yourself, does not follow this rule. He teaches the routine 3 times! Yes, you might wonder why someone would teach it 3 times. Well, I guess he didn’t want people walking away from the video still not having understood everything. The nice thing is, if you DID understand everything, that’s why this is a DVD, so all you have to do is press the forward button and you’re set. There is even a section in the DVD where you can follow along. This section is called, “grab a fork and follow along.”
As far as the quality of the video goes, I would rate it 8 out 10 and the editing and graphics I would rate a very easy 11 out of 10. The routine itself I can’t even rate, it’s just WAY too good to be rated, but I guess if I was to rate it, I’d say 100 out of 10. One of the most amazing routines I have ever seen in magic!
Overall, I would HIGHLY recommend this video to anyone, whether you already do metal bending or not. I do not recommend this video over Banachek’s, since that is what a lot of people have been asking. However, I would not recommend Banachek’s video over Morgan’s as well. They are both great, but Morgan’s routine is a very twisted one fork routine that you will be able to perform within a month if not even less (especially if you already are familiar with metal bending.)
Overall, I HIGHLY Recommend this!

I don't have Morgans DVD so I cant say if its good for you or not.

Banachek's DVD is something I can recomend. He not only teaches you the moves, but the subtleties and the pshycoligi behind it. He explaines to you why it works.

Almost all of the bends taught on that DVD is impromptu. They requaire no gimmicks.

Go with the BAnacheck DVD.

Mattisdx: From one lennart green fan to another(which has nothing to do with), let me tell you this is the real deal.


Morgan has an excellent routine that many have been waiting for a long time to come out, and it will definatly be good material, because the routine itself is really good.

I've also been looking into this DVD. I'll probably purchase both Banachek's and Morgan's because it's always good to have other people's insights on a certain subject of magic. Maybe later, I'll pick up Kuff's since I've been told that it is a very well put-together metal bending DVD as well.

Just to make this clear, I gave Morgan permission to use and show a couple of my bends so long as he gave reference. I think it is just two of my bends that are on the DVD.

The DVD looks very good. Combining the new moves with Banachek's bends should create a very good routine.

Svengali, I'm a little confused by your post. Are you saying Morgan teaches 6 new bends on his DVD? Or are you requesting that he teach 6 new bends?

What he means is, Morgan teaches 6 new bends.

I love Penguin but the "I HIGHLY Recommend this!" line is in most of the products discribed?

Well I don't highly recommend everything Penguin has...in fact, I do think some of the stuff they carry is crap, I just really did get a beta of this dvd...long story how that happened, and this thing I can honestly recommend. I'm someone that has NO GUTS to perform metal bending but since I seen Morgan's video I been doing a few bends...his 3 tine bend is KILLER!

If you are serious then the answer is no.
