Vanishing Point Review

Tenyo really dropped the ball with this one. A small red ball is placed on a platform and a playing card is leaned up against the ball, hiding it from the spectator's view. Then, after a second, the card is pushed down into the platform and the ball has vanished. The performer explains that the ball passed through the solid table and then reaches under and brings the ball back to the top of the table.

There are a few problems with this trick. The first and most significant issue is that anyone, including children over the age of ten (and maybe younger) will know what you are doing, even if they cannot see the sleight. The second is that performing the trick can be a bit cumbersome, even though is is relatively easy. The third is that the gimmick does not always work perfectly. The trick comes with everything you need to perform it, but you just don't need this overpriced trick.

The promotional video shows a very skilled performance of this trick, but nonetheless, it is still obvious to any live spectator how the ball "passes through" the table. The English instructions are easy to follow, in the event that you buy this trick and totally disagree with this review. The trick comes with a Japanese language DVD that contains the promotional video that you can find on the internet and an easy to follow instructional video, even if you don't understand Japanese.

I would skip this one and invest in something else.

Manufacturer's Description:

This magic effect baffles everyone, including experienced magicians. The solid ball completely vanishes, and reappears from below the tabletop. When you learn the secret, you'll be just as impressed as your audiences. A simple gimmick, used in a diabolically clever way, has enabled us to develop this brand-new effect.

Place a solid ball on the center of a small platform, and then shield the ball from your audience's view with a single playing card. You balance the card so that it leans against the ball, remaining upright until the last second. However, when you lower the card, the solid ball has completely vanished!
