"I've seen probably more magic than anyone in the world in my career. Breakthrough is one of those very rare items that reminds me why I love magic. It fooled me and then when I learned the method, it made me smile"

When I've just bought a new trick, I want to get into performing the trick a.s.a.p. and in that state of mind, the intro is a bit long. In my oppinion he could have gotten to the trick itself a little quicker and do some sort of 'behind the scenes'-thingy at the end. I have to agree with some other reviews, I'm not really sure why this trick costs 20 dollars more then other tricks I bought from this site, but non the less, it is a great trick and the reactions I'm getting are awesome. My first thought was that this trick would cost me a lot of time to practice, I was a little concerned about angles, but once I was in front of the mirror, checking out how the angles would work out, I actually was able to catch on pretty quick. It took me about 5 minutes to master the main angle and another 10 minutes to develope some confidence in the performance, and that as still being a student magician. Fun video to watch, explanation is done very well and goes into a lot of details and the trick itself is a lot of fun to do, for myself as well as the spectators.
Amazing. Literally only requires practice. I hope you get this because it truly looks like a miracle. Don't be disappointed just by the explanation. Watch the rest and you'll love it!!
This is the first magic trick I've bought (I've bought more tricks since then), and I'm so happy with it! The secret is something I couldn't guess! Very clever! And this magician does a great job explaining the method. Compared to many of those coin-in-a-bottle routines, I think this one is the best. And worth the cost of buying to learn.
