I have never given a one star review....ever. I've been a professional magician for over 40 years and have always wanted something to silence the clanking of coins coming together. I recently purchased Rocco's Gripper Coins and the Silver Edge Magnetic Coins from a different magician. and combined the two effects.
I'm still working on the routine to make it my own but it's a marvelous combination of gaffed coins. There was still one missing component...getting rid of the sound in a quiet environment. Especially with the Silver Edge Coins.
So, when I came across this substance created specifically for that purpose I thought I had hit the jackpot. Within 2 minutes of opening the package I knew immediately I had purchased a DUD.
To begin with, there is no description of the substance itself. I'd certainly like to know if there is anything in it that would be deemed even slightly carcinogenic or even just not that good on sensitive skin like mine. I don't know what I'm handling. I'm always wary and cautious of anything coming into contact with my skin since I was diagnosed with and treated for Stage 3 Malignant Melanoma just 2 years ago. It's the most aggressive cancer known to exist, so yeah, I'm a little cautious. It's irresponsible not to provide an ingredients list (not quantities, because that would be giving away the secret formula, right?)
Ok, on to the "Instructional Video" (and I use that term lightly) which was posted on YouTube. At a whopping 4 whole minutes in length you can just imagine how much material was on it. This was the worst tutorial I have ever...ever...seen. There was no explanation as to how to get into the routines with the "magical" substance. He showed a small blob of it on a coin for about 5 seconds. After I put a little dab on one of the magnetic coins, I couldn't separate them with my hands. I had to use a razor blade. Then I tried the normal coins...half dollars. Same thing. It's almost like a strong glue which makes separating the coins, undetectably with your hands during the routines, impossible. It's so ridiculously impossible that I can't believe he gets away with the false advertising of this stuff and the false claims he makes.
Even if you could separate them easily, you can't show the coins because you would see it. If he devised a way to remove it before showing the coins to a spectator, he certainly didn't show how to do it in the tutorial I watched. And it was the cheesiest tutorial I have ever seen. Absolutely terrible.
And it didn't completely mask the sound, either. The edges of the coins still touched and clanked. If you put more material closer to the edges, then it squished out the sides in full view. And he didn't go over any of these problems at all. Never a mention. I mean, at 4 minutes how would one cover all the points to go over? You can't.
You can bet your bottom dollar I'll be asking Brandi in Customer Service (who does an awesome job by the way) to return this for a different item, but not a refund. I am MJM's very first customer since they opened their online store close to 20 years ago and have purchased well over 100 items since then. Jeff Mash runs a solid, reputable, honest and highly ethical business and has always treated me with the utmost courtesy and respect.
All in all, it's a terrible product, terrible tutorial and I wouldn't recommend anyone buying this. You'll waste your money.
