Review of Dry (Japanese High Tech Marker Trick)

WHAT YOU GET

You get a special gimmicked double sided marker, a small bottle of ink refill, written instructions, and a link to video instruction.

It doesn’t come with the batteries you will need.

In the effect, your participant tries to write and the pen ink is dry. You open the pen, remove the battery, replace it, and the pen writes.

WHAT I LIKE

I’m not reviewing this on the basis of how strong the magic is. You will need to determine how to best use this. I personally think it is a great gag moment as part of routine and another magic effect.

The quality of the prop is superb.

The method is very simple. All you do is open the cap, hand the pen to a participant to write. They find it is dry. You take back the pen and try the other side. It is also dry. You then unscrew the pen, remove a battery, replace the battery and the pen writes. Hand the pen to the participant to sign a card or whatever else.

The effect is completely angle free. You can perform completely surrounded.

The ad is fair and accurate. What you see is what you get.

WHAT I DIDN’T LIKE

I really like everything about this. I see it as a “gag” effect that could be part of another routine, such as an ambitious card routine or something else that requires the participant to write something.

AT A GLANCE

The skill level required: 1 of 5.
Audience management skill required: 1 of 5.
Performance angles: 360 degrees
The reset time required: None
The DIY time involved in advance: None

VERDICT

This is a great “gag” mini effect that could be a perfect companion to any number of routines that require a participant to sign their name, draw, or write something.

Available at your favorite Murphy’s Magic dealer
