SummaryLatch is a great product and I would highly recommend it. The positives are you get two methods to pull of the trick. The negatives are for the better performance you will need to make a gimmick which will require you to go out and buy a few things if you don't have them already.
SummaryLike a lot of people said, the gimmicked version is the best, and don't mind not buying it because its gimmicked, because is pretty easy to do and perform. Love it.
SummaryVery good 'popping' trick! Can only be done best 1 on 1. Keys differ country to country so good luck finding out what's best and popular. Otherwise, handling is very neat! It is a powerful close up magic.
SummaryA pretty good trick. The gimmick version allows you to not only link a key to a key ring, but do many other tricks like moving a key with your mind, and instantly making it disappear. Ungimmicked version is not as good, but not bad. Worth the price.
SummaryLatch was a great buy, the method to the gimmicked version is one that you would appreciate. Its so clean and fun to do you could fool yourself in the mirror. Although the ungimmicked version isn't bad, it is quite angle sensitive, but if you're performing for one person, it's just as powerful as the first version if not more. Brilliant work Geraint Clarke, looking forward to more.
SummaryOnly version with gimmick is awesome. The normal version (without gimmick) is good, but not how I thought so. The version in the video is with gimmick. So if you don't like gimmicks, you have to think this purchase through. 4/5
SummaryAwesome trick. My grandson thinks grandpa has magic hands. Thanks for a way to entertain the young and others around me. Being in a wheelchair it is always nice to have something to present to others.
Summaryhonestly this is a really fun trick to perform. So far for me it's been extremely well received and always a nice break from just card magic. It's a really unexpected trick that makes people happy and helps you relax because it's really easy to perform. there is a gimmick version and an non-gimmick version. both of these perform really well. Personally i like the gimmick version because it's so easy to set up and everyone can make it in no time at all. The non-gimmick version is also really good just a little more difficult due to some extra moves. But honestly, it was very easy to get the hang of and a blast to perform when I do it. Definitely a buy in my book, you wont regret it.
SummaryOkay, fist of all, I haven't tried this yet.
Just finished watching the video. So I'll let you know what I think of Latch so far.
There are actually two different routines!
One ungimmicked happening right in the hands of the spectator. This one is a bit angle sensitive and the only drawback might be, that you can only perform it safely for one person. BUT I think it is a fantastic, very strong effect, definitly worth the $9 alone.
The other 'gimmicked' version (most people will probably already have the neccessary things needed at their home) is very easy to 'create/setup' and seems definitely worth to perform. This can be done for a few people standing in front of you. May be difficult to fully cover if surrounded.
To sum it up, I think for this low price you get two mindblowing key-effects.
My only criticism is, that I would have loved to pay a few $ more to get more advice on the general handling, especially considering angles and the before-after handling.
I will try it asap, but even though beginner can definitely perform this after little practice, I believe it isn't THAT easy. because you will need to have your handling, angles and timing done perfectly in order to make this TRUE MAGIC.
Oh, and when I saw the video I thought I knew how at least one trick was done. That being said, you most likely wont figure out the other version and some important details on handling for the first. For $9 a no-brainer.
I just wish there would be a more in-depth version for maybe twice the price with one or two extras.
