"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"

I've just finished watching the download, and I can see why some people do not want to watch the beginning. However, I enjoyed it and the trick is amazing to me, and worth every penny in my eyes.
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!!
