I almost feel unworthy to review this effect - being a Richard Sander's product and all - especially considering that I'm going to offer some criticism. It's not about the effect. It is about the product itself. This "problem" I'm about to mention seems to be more and more common in the DVDs I've been getting lately. It is this: The lack of a "Play All" or "Continuous Play" feature. After each chapter, the DVD stops and goes back to the menu.

That is extremely frustrating to the viewer. Especially to the viewer with a broken remote control. Literally having to get up after every 5 minute segment to navigate the menu and push the play button, not to mention that not all DVD players have arrow keys on them. These days that stuff is found ONLY on the remote control and not on the DVD player.

Other than that, you might as well stop reading now and just go order this. The effect is as good as the demo shows and claims. It comes with the gimmick. It's easy to do. Super visual . . . yada yada yada. Come on people. It's Richard Sanders. If you still want more detail, fine.

Production Quality: Awesome, with one exception. There is a segment or two shot outside that has some minor audio and lighting problems. Otherwise, the audio, video and lighting, etc. is excellent.

When it comes to repeat performance like a strolling situation, the choices are either use the same revelation card all night, or have several gimmicks prepared and change 'em out a couple of times per night. Depending on the type of gig you're doing, it might just be worth it to give out the chain and card for a souvenir.

Honestly gang, I don't know what else to say. Other than keeping this effect to myself and out of the hands of other magicians, I cannot think of any reason why you shouldn't buy this.

Lost 1/2 point for menu issues.

Transform your dog tag chain into a secret weapon!

From the creator of Extreme Burn, Interlace and Fiber Optics Extended comes an incredible illusion where the dog tag chain around your neck and a selected card become visually and impossible linked together.

Effect

A playing card is selected, shuffled into the deck and then...the impossible happens! The performer points out the dog tag chain hanging around his neck. The chain is completely solid and ungimmicked. Holding the deck in his hand, he waves it over the hanging chain, suddenly the selected card jumps out from the deck and impales itself onto the chain.

Get a load of this:

There are no breaks in the chain and no slits or tears in the card. The selected card visibly impales itself onto the chain, leaving it in an impossibly linked condition. Everything is completely examinable! You can even give it away as a souvenir!

Key Points:
  • Use any deck
  • Use any dog tag chain
  • Everything is totally examinable
  • Angle-proof penetration
  • The perfect closer to any card routine
Package Includes:
  • 36" Custom Dog Tag Chain
  • Special gimmick
  • Full training DVD that will guide you through every step of this effect, including method, performance, variations, handling tips and all the subtleties that make this effect so devastating!
Running Time Approximately 55min
