Ziplocked by Rob Greenlee
We also included a version where you can actually 'throw' the object (or signed coin) through thin air into the bag.Yet another first in close up magic. As seen in the demo, the coin literally flies through the air to end up in a sealed Ziplock bag.
Borrow any coin and have your spectator sign it, better yet, borrow their ring, or their house key. Blow up a Ziplock bag. have your spectator hold the neck of the back, and with a light flick, send that object through the walls of the plastic into the bag for the world to see.
They can visually see and feel the object clearly inside.
• No switches or duplicates
• No magnets, threads, or sticky stuff
• Use a regular Ziplocked bag
• Easy to learn , easy to perform
• Use signed coin or borrowed small objects
As clever as it is simple, Ziplocked had a profound impact on the street and has been in Rob's working repertoire since inception. Give it a try.
Run-time: 19 minutes
This effect is pretty good if you learn to handle and carry the bag like an everyday item. Carry your cards and a other items in it like you use it to protect them from getting dirty or wet. The bag becomes secondary. The effect looks great. It is a little knacky. I actually had trouble finding bags like you really want for this effect. That being said you will want to have good spectator management skills just to keep the grabbers down to a minimum. However you can direct people into looking at the wrong area with some well placed statements if you do allow some scrutiny of the bag. This is easy and can be strong performed at the right time and for the right audience. Pick your performances and you should do fine.
Not a bad buy for $9, but I must say I was a little disappointed. I assumed it would be a "borrow some objects and do an effect" type of thing, but I jumped to conclusions. The ending isn't as clean as I'd like, but the effect looks really good when done correctly. Just like any product, it has it's pros and cons. All in all, my advice would be to spend your $9 on something else on ellusionist.
Very open trick with great applaude from audience
This is the kind of trick you really need to have good control over your spectators to perform. I prefer tricks that are more transparent and have a quick cleanup so spectators can examine things... I feel like that heightens the reaction, when they can touch it and not know how it was done. You can't really do that with this trick. I can see it being a good closer for a small crowd that isn't to 'grabby.' Not for everyone.
I thought it was a good effect which it is but the method is kinda noticeable but I have shown so many RANDOM people from like walmart,gas stations places like that.I can tell you I never leave home with out it .
This is a cool trick. The effect looks really cool itself and gets good reactions if performed well. Like many of the other reviews, I agree that this trick is not worth ALL of the 9.95 but it is worth the majority of it. This trick has an interesting setup but I find that the trick, for me, doesn't work the majority of the time and takes a some practice to get perfect. Beside all of that, this is a really cool trick.
At first I was really excited!! When I bought it, trust me, it isn't the same easy as it looks. The set up is really easy but when it comes to perform it it's not that easy and it doesn't always works. Although it needs a lot of practice, it's a really good and effective magic trick. I recommend it!
This is nice. I read the other reviews and I personally like the method. While the suggested lean up can bite you if not done well, I like the idea of ripping the bag at the end to get the ring out. I pull the bag out of my lunch box and have instant credibility.The first time I did it I bounced the quarter off the bag. So I adjusted a bit for "better vibes" and and nailed it. I also like the Susan B gold dollar for the visual impact and the weight. No regrets.
overall awesome trick I perform it all the time and its a great effect. But sometimes when I practice the coin rebounds off of the bag :)but I guess that is just my lacking of ability over all I am getting my moneys worth
this is a great trick and very simple , setup is easy and is very ballsey there are so many ways you could get caught. you just have to be good. i just bought this trick today and i am simply stunned.
