"Breakthrough is like real magic for the eyes! I'm gonna be doing this for everyone, it's the sort of magic I love to perform!"
~ Dynamo

Breakthrough is a true masterpiece that fools even the most experienced professionals. It is the most direct, flexible and practical coin-into-can effect for any situation. You visually slam a coin through the bottom of an empty can and immediately hand it out.

That's it. It's that simple. It can't look any more real than this.
"Congratulations, it's a beautiful piece!"
~ Wayne Houchin

"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"
~ Tim Trono

    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.

    The trick itself is magnificent! Handling requires practice, of course. All in all, very powerful. A super long video though but very detailed explanation. For the price, it is a little steep, but I suppose it is nice to support creativity from less well-known magicians.
