Imagine having a sharpie marker gently touch a deck of cards, only to have it start sinking through the deck like a hot knife melting through butter. While your audience is in utter astonishment by the impossible visual, you pull the sharpie out and dump out the entire deck of cards from the tuck case. Everything can be examined by your spectator. Impale is a full illusion set that fits right in your pocket. Perform it anywhere, anytime.
Gimmick Included.

After taking the trick out to test in two of my gigs, here's my review in details.
.
Ad integrity : The description is accurate. There is no deck switch. After performing the effect you can dump out the cards to go into your card routine. The case is examinable right away.
.
What you get : You get a DVD and a gimmick package. After watching the DVD, it takes about 5-10 mins to put it together.
.
Wife Test : Passed.
.
Reaction from gigs : Great reaction. I was initially worried about lighting condition since the gimmick is not 100% invisible when you look at it up close. Performed it in a cocktail setting and a pretty well lit restaurant, worked like a charm in both settings.
.
THE CONS :
There are basically two ways/angles you can perform this effect. The main angle/handling is much MUCH stronger in selling this illusion. If you are holding the deck with your right hand, you'll be showing the left edge of the deck to your audience. Your audience will be able to see a solid deck (without giving too much away, I'll leave it at here). However, it requires the performer to wear dark color clothing (T-shirt or jacket). The second handling has no clothing requirement at all, but you only get to show the top of the case which not only limits your performance angle, it weakens the effect.
.
THE PROS :
It's surprisingly practical for gigs. Although the best handling to do this has clothing requirement, in most cases when we perform gigs, we are already wearing what's needed. If you are wearing something colorful for the casual moments, there's a side handling that allows you to perform it as well. DVD is well shot and taught. Great production quality. I also noticed the cut was made slightly larger than the sharpie so it goes in and out very smoothly. The 'd*or' was made in certain orientation so the 'g*p' blends in with the sharpie when the effect is taking place. Very clever.
.
Thoughts :
It's a great visual opener for card workers. Very magical looking. Right after the effect the box can be handed out with no deck switch. The cards are all regular cards that you can proceed to perform any card routines. Jason Yu and Nicholas Lawrence has done a great job.
.
Overall :
I really enjoy it. Most of the products I buy nowadays are at $35 range. For the $40 price point I have higher expectation, and I am not disappointed. It's worth the money and I highly recommended. 4.5/5 stars.
.
Difficulty Level :
Some practice is required but all very basic.

Rating: 4 of 5 Stars [4 of 5 Stars]
