PROS

The vanishes look awesome! After seeing the device and the instruction, I think this is a very good tool to show a very clean vanish. The device also works very well to make an object re-appear.

Clearly, a lot of thought was put into this device. It comes with different accessories and he has really put this through a lot of roadwork.

In performance, you can roll up your sleeves, show your arms and hands are completely clean and then cause a coin or variety of other small objects to vanish and/or appear.

The device is very good quality, and with reasonable care, it should last a very long time.

You will need to get set up in advance with the device, but in performance, the get ready and reset are very easy. You could wear this device for an entire show without problem.

The instruction is very thorough. He covers a number of effects including coin vanishes, productions, coin changes, coin penetration into tic tac box, and many more. He also demonstrates effect with other items, such as bills, batteries, etc. He also shows a wide variety of effects, such as a coin that is pulverized into little pieces. He has high tech effects, such as a coin or battery that vanishes and/or is produced in/from an iphone. This routine uses an iphone app. The app is called “card to phone” by Halskov. The App allows you to put a variety of objects into the phone. He also shows a really cool effect using the Lubor’s lense and a cigarette. All the effects are very strong.

CONS

You must really customize this device to you. You will need to work on getting it set up so it works for you.

The device is designed to cause a single item to vanish and re-appear.

This device is designed for people up close and looking down at your hands. This is designed for close-up, not parlor or stage effects. He talks about different ideas to cover exposed angles.

This is probably not for the strolling magician, unless your audience is a very small group in a controlled setting.

VERDICT

This device will take a bit of work to get it just right for your body, but it is very powerful and lends itself to very strong magic.

Developed and Engineered by Mark Allen
Additional Effects and Handlings by Alex Linian


EMPTY HANDS. ROLLED-UP SLEEVES. BARE FOREARMS. PURE AMAZEMENT. AN INNOVATIVE STREAMLINED NEW HOLD-OUT DEVICE.

A wondrous, secret gimmick that enables you to spread your fingers wide open and show both sides of your hands completely empty. Roll up your sleeves to just below the elbow to show your bare forearms. Spectators clearly see both sides of your hands and arms before and after each stunning effect. Everything happens in full view as you deliver miracle after miracle.

GONZO IN YOUR SPECTATOR'S HAND:
Put a bottle cap on your spectator's outstretched hand; snap your fingers, and the cap instantly vanishes or changes into a coin.

GONZO IN YOUR OWN HANDS:
Show your hands, fingers and arms 100% empty --- then, in a blink, produce and vanish a coin, a bill or a stick of gum.

GONZO YOUR LUBOR'S LENS:
Use your Lubor's Lens to make an object "look" invisible; then show that the object is really and truly gone! When we say that Gonzo gives you the power to show your hands, fingers and arms completely empty, we're talking real-world, nothing's there, 100% clean. Period. Stand in front of a mirror and take a look at yourself. Roll up your sleeves, wiggle your fingers, spread them wide open, and slowly show both sides of your hands and forearms. That's exactly how your spectators will see you before and after every absolutely killer Gonzo miracle!
