PIN by Marc Paul: you will love what you can do with what you get, be it on stage, in a parlor setting or close-up. I give it 10/10 and I am happy to own and use it. I actually use it as a name/place routine, but have replaced the place by the PIN information. No more burning of billets and nor more center tear. At 55 I do not have such good eyesight anymore and I am very happy that, like in many other Marc Paul routines, you write with a black sharpie on a clear white background. You can see what you need to see very clearly. While this is NOT for design duplications, it is perfect for more personal information such as your PIN, a name or a place. What is REALLY COOL about these envelopes is that you can show them from the front AND back ANYTIME while the card is in the envelope, when it is out of the envelope, before the peek and, if you wanted to, even again right after the peek! I was aware of the method before, but Marc`s handling and the props from Alakazam make this work so smoothly now. Yes, there are other ways to peek, peek wallets, impression devices... but this one is so clean (and actually very cheap). Thank you Marc for the development and thank you Alakazam for producing the great props. Service is also lightning fast and free!
A wonderful idea from Marc! The envelopes which Alakazam have produced are first class (likewise the packaging). The gimmick is undetectable from a very close range. Marc's handling tips (as well as Peter's ideas) are top-notch. It's one of those rare effects which, if you're nor careful, you'll fall more in love with the method than the effect! Having said that, the envelope allows you to customise the effect you wish in many ways. The basic PIN routine itself looks like the real deal: genuine mind-reading. There are times in this craft when some idea, method or gimmick just tickles you pink: this is one of them. Congratulations to both Marc Paul and Alakazam. PIN is a must, and is very highly recommended!
I bought this on a bit of a whim. I have one of Marc's effects that has been in my stand up show for about ten years so I know that he produces quality effects that are simple but powerful. I love the cleanness and how pure it looks. It uses a principle that we all should of thought of but didn't. I have added this to my Fox (Luca Volpe) and now have a small but powerful two hour show. If you are thinking of getting it - do it!
WOW ! So well made and such a great method. Worth every penny and more.
INSPIRING! It has to be said, I was inspired by this effect the minute Marc tipped it in his Academy course. While this could be made at home, the quality is absolutely second to none and worth every penny of the purchase price. The original routine and the bonus ideas on the instruction video will have you up and running in no time at all and hopefully get those creative juices flowing for your own handlings for this amazing addition to your mentalism toolkit. I recommend this very highly indeed as this won't stop at a simple PIN revelation once you've got your hands on it.
Absolutely love this !!! The teaching is fantastic and the effect very easy to perform . I can think of other ideas which is great. The gimmick is superbly constructed and the material ensures operation is smooth. Having PIN on the gimmick is NOT an issue for me. Highly recommended !
This is just awesome, received Saturday used it on a gig that night. It’s a killer. I use the SAW for majority of my peeks, but the envelopes just look so colourful they draw their own attention from on lookers at the tables. The quality is frighteningly superb , but make sure you loosen the envelopes up as discribed on the download. I spent about 30 mins bedding them in and now it hits every time . Thank you Marc for putting this out there and Peters team for producing such a quality item, AGAIN
I was introduced to this effect at the Marc Paul Academy and loved the idea. I immediately made up my own versions as demonstrated by Marc which worked really well. However, this pack takes it to the next level. The design, use of materials, etc makes the whole thing work perfectly. I can't believe how smooth the reveal is. If you did the academy and are wondering whether it's worth paying for these rather than making your own, I would say buy it. You won't get it working as well as this which gives you confidence in a performance situation. If PIN is new to you, all I'll say is 'do you want to convince people you can really read their minds with a method that virtually self working and hits every time?'Write Review
