Soft Spot: Perhaps one of the best things I have recently bought. I have always been a fan of tricks that seem to work themselves, and can be set-up anywhere at anytime. Also, the ability to not have to buy reloads or extra pieces of equipment to make it work is included in my criteria for a trick. Soft Spot, IS ALL OF THESE AND MORE! When you buy this, you don't buy something that amazes only you, but this one leaves the spectator doubting what you did. This is a real brainstopper. Out of everyone I have done this to, they have given me the most bewildered gazes I have ever seen, and I have done quite some amazing tricks on them. When practiced perfectly, everything making this work is entirely invisible. You can even set this up with no one the wiser. Just walk by a trash can, pull out your bottle, and go! I highly recommend this trick to anyone. $20.00 may seem alot, but this trick will keep you, and your spectators, amazed forever!

Although it is a great trick and you can really fool people, my opinion is that it is WAY overpriced for a download. I initially decided to pay the $20 to help support a new inventor and MJM.
I would have given it four stars if the price was $10.
You can make it appear more impromptu if you show yourself taking the bottle from among others like on a table or from a garbage can and have a cap already screwed on the bottle that your specs see you remove.

I think this could be ok if you don't already have a cap in bottle that you use. I wasn't overly impressed with the pdf, it was only a few pages and had a lot of grammar mistakes. That in itself is not that bad but for $20 bucks a good proof read is expected in my opinion. I gave it 2 stars because of the lack of detail and ideas in the pdf and I feel that $20.00 is way overpriced for what you are buying. I think the Mike Powers VIP manuscript that you can get for $10.00 on this site is a much better value.

I am going to review this on the basis of 3 categories:
Method- This is the first cap in bottle effect that I have purchased so I cannot compare it to others. The method it self is quite in ingenious. It calls for very little to set up, which allows it to be virtually impromptu. Though you cannot just grap someones bottle and do it right there. Also it does require special bottles to do the more "improtu" version of it. On the forums users have created alternative handlings that work better but are less impromptu. It will require some practice to get it just right (as with most magic) so be prepared. Also it does take guts to perform this it does require some slight of hand. One final plus is that you can hand out the bottle for inspection), though you do not end clean.
Instructions- When you dl it you get a 2-3 page instruction pdf with pics and text describing how to do it. The doc its a little short and doesn't go into too much depth. The creator is supposed to be coming out with a video soon, which i'm sure will help clear up alot.
Practicality- If you were to preform this at a school it would be relatively easy to aquire acess of a gatorade or plastic snapple bottle. Though if you were to preform it in school you have to be careful of your angles. In all I might perfrom this from time to time. The few times I did perform this the specs had great reactions though which is a plus.
Conclusion- Overall this is a great, cheap cap in bottle that if you do not have one, or are looking for one which you end clean, this is the one you should get.
