Review of Frea-capped (DVD and Gimmicks)

Reviewed by Joe Diamond
I hated this when I watched the video. I felt the trick was really obvious. I ran thru it quickly for a friend, and she was fooled, and said, “Do it again.” I did, she busted it the second time when she asked to see the marker.

Granted, this is meant to be a throw away. You have to put the marker away immediately after the stunt, and you have to switch the regular marker for the gimmicked marker after it is used.

The trick is solid. The DVD teaches you how to make another gimmick from another Sharpie or almost any kind of pen. It also teaches you a variety of ways to switch the markers. The 30 dollar price tag is a little steep for a 3 second trick like this. If it was twenty I think that would be a better value.

There is also a MAJOR angle issue. If you do this for a table on one end of a restaurant or cocktail party, and then do it on the opposite end of the room, if they look over as you do this trick, they WILL see how it’s done. If I’m going to do something in my professional strolling work in the real world, I need something a little more bullet proof than that.

I think a teacher could do this for his class the first day of school, and be the coolest teacher ever. In that situation, the angles are right, and the distance/position of authority allows for them to not ask to see the marker.

This is not bad, it’s easy to execute, and a surprising effect. It’s a little over priced, and there are some major angle issues, but overall, this is decent.

Three Stars
