OH WOW. My Gob is well and truly smacked. Gobsmacked. This is incredible. Peter Nardi for Prime Minister.
I have seen many so called 'clever' gimmicks in my time. This one is one of the best. To take a signed card and make it appear in an impossible location right in front of your spectator's eyes is impressive, but usually requires a lot of practice/managament/sleights etc. This is different. It literally does all the work for you and leaves you to concentrate on the performance. I am a seriously fussy customer (just ask the guys at Alakazam!) but I have to give credit where it is due. This will go straight into your routine and stay there when you see the reactions you get. Buy it and enjoy performing it right out of the box!
If you want to take your magic to the next level then you've just been blessed! This effect will single handedly get you some of the biggest reactions and have you pulling in gigs, you'll be confused to which effect to do next using this utility device as it opens up a crazy amount of possibilities with no where near the pressure of all the usual slights. Endless routines taught on the DVD and in-depth chat about using the effect. If you imagine the top classic must haves this should be in your list and never leave home without it. Make sure you know CPR after your spectators see this they may need it !! 10/10
Okay, I know I've already reviewed this puppy, but I did what I said I was going to do in my original review, so time now for a second BIG UP for the E2. I made my second copy up with the Timeless Deck from USPCC ... it's was really quick and easy to do too, so if you regularly use a deck other than Rider Back Bicycles DO NOT be put off from purchasing this amazingly versatile gimmick. I've found the best reaction comes when the spectator reveals their card in an impossible location so I always have them reach into my pocket themselves and take out either the card or my wallet. Using this with The Real Man's Wallet is a killer effect, especially when the spectator takes the wallet from my pocket themselves, opens the wallet and finds their card in a sealed compartment inside my wallet. It never fails to get a "How the hell did you do that?" reaction. I just had to write this review after performing it this morning for my son's teachers whilst dropping him off at school, I cannot put into words how strong this effect is. I am so happy with these purchases, it goes everywhere with me.
This has got to be one of the best utilities I have come across to date. I absolutely love this. I've had it a couple of weeks now; I watched the DVDs immediately upon receipt, and I gave my extractor a bit of an inspection. It is a fine piece of craftsmanship, and like it says on the tin, can be used with ANY card design (so long as the edges are white). I put it all away in the box wondering how I might build it into a routine ... this evening a friend visited and we got to talking about magical effects; having not used the E2 before I warned that it might go horribly wrong, and the magic might be revealed as faux. (Remember that I'd not so far practiced with it). I tried to remember one of Peter's routines, and I managed to pull it off with a degree of belief ... well to be fair, the reaction was amazing. It was a real jaw dropping moment. My participant just kept on replaying everything that happened ... "but I put my card into the deck and closed the box", "how did you do that?" "how did my card get into your wallet?" -oh I forgot to mention that I used it in conjunction with Steve Draun's "The Real Man's Wallet" ... I guess that helped provide the proverbial "kick in the teeth" moment, but it was the extractor which made the effect possible. I cannot recommend the Extractor 2 highly enough. Get one, in fact, get two ... I plan to grab another one as soon as pay day comes around again.
My friend got this delivered yesterday and I have to say it is fantastic! so much so I got him to order me one too - can't wait to get it. DVD is comprehensive and we both picked up a routine fairly quick. Very well made and put together, well worth the money.
If you want to do a signed card to impossible location, there are several really decent and clean options out there. If you want to do a signed card to completely ridiculous and somewhat frustratingly impossible location, you're going to need to pick up the E2. And if you do, you're in for a MASSIVE surprise. Highly recommended. You need this thing in your life.Write Review
