PROS

This is an awesome gimmick! It is well made. It is made of plastic, but it will match a dark brown bottle very well.

The instruction is very good. In addition to Brandon and Chris, Dan Harlan provides a very good routine and presentation for the bottle using a playing card or business card.

The gimmick can be easily loaded onto the bottle during performance.

CONS

Of course, you can only use this with the right color bottle. Dan Harlan says he brings his own bottle with him and sets his bottle on any table. I think this method would work very well. One problem with Dan’s handling is he leaves the gimmick on the bottle sitting on the table. The problem with that is the bottle could be whisked away to the trash can. I think it is simple enough to load the gimmick onto the empty bottle on the table.

VERDICT

This is a great gimmick, small and easy to use. The instruction is very good.


Suggestions from the Reviewer

When you load a bill into the gimmick, you could fold the bill over the bottle top before “tearing” the bill off the top of the bill. You hold the bill as if there is a hole in the bill and you hand out the bottle for examination. You can then reach into your pocket, ditch the gimmick and come out with a sharpie. Draw a circle and a line to the edge on the bill where the holes would be as you say you are repairing the hole. Draw a few perpendicular lines around the other lines to make it look like stitches. Hand out the bill. All the heat will be on the bill.

Manufacturer's Description:



It's a rare thing when an effect comes out that accomplishes something that has never been seen before. It's even more rare that the effect uses a method that is so practical you will be performing it all the time. Imagine you are at a restaurant/bbq/bar and you are asked to perform an effect. Sure you could perform one of the many awesome card tricks you know but this time you want to perform something that they will always remember. Imagine having the ability to take an ordinary glass bottle and VISUALLY penetrate the neck of the bottle with a playing card, dollar bill or piece of paper laying around. The DEVIOUS gimmick can be added to any brown glass bottle. The gimmick is invisible and is something that is very easily brought in and out of play. Not only can you perform the object melting through bottle neck effect but you can also perform an awesome bottle through spectators shirt or even a penetrating cap routine. The possibilities with this effect are endless. The DEVIOUS gimmick is something new and will excite even those magicians that think they know what the method is.
