4K Color Vision Box, Fadeck, Book Cube Change Set, Post Trick | Craig & Ryland's Review Show
Craig and Ryland perform every trick they review so you can see exactly how the routine looks and they are always 100% honest. Neither magician is associated with a third party company. All of their opinions are strictly their own. Let's take a look at the four products reviewed for this week's show.
4K Color Vision
The first product Craig & Ryland reviewed is the 4K Color Vision Box by Brent Braun and Magic Firm. According to Brent Braun, "4K Color Vision is a multi-phase, jaw-dropping feat of mind reading that can be carried in your pocket. The die is placed inside the opaque box with one color facing up. You're able to guess which color it is every time. Each phase is more impossible than the last. You can even name the color when the spectator has placed the die into the box behind their back. Nobody in the room knows the color. Yet, you can still guess it correctly without even needing to touch the box."
It's a brilliant and creative product that deserves recognition. Craig enjoyed this product and gave it an 89% rating while Ryland enjoyed it more and gave it a 95% score.
Craig and Ryland also reviewed Juan Pablo's new product called FADECK RED / BLUE. This is a new product released on Penguin Magic, inspired by Paul Harris. According to Juan, "A spectator chooses a card and you keep it clearly in a pocket and the rest of the deck remains in one of your hands, now slowly, visually and magically the deck disappears until there is only one card left in your hand and it turns out to be... the chosen card and the rest of the deck is now... in your pocket!"
The product is super visual, the deck disappears very slowly and you can rest the whole routine in five seconds. Craig really enjoyed this and gave it a score of 97% while Ryland followed up with a close 99%. If you work in close up and stage magic, consider adding FADECK to your show.
Book Cube Change SET
The third product Craig & Ryland reviewed this week is Book Cube Change SET by SYOUMA & TSUBASA. As a Rubik's Cube fan, Craig was looking forward to this routine and can say with confidence the product is amazing. According to the description on Penguin Magic, "You scramble a puzzle cube and you announce that it is going to be a magical prediction. You then show a book with dozens of pictures of various mixed cubes that you flip through and ask your audience to say, "Stop" at any point in the book. You then ask them to choose either the right or left illustration.
When you compare the mixed cube to the illustration, the cube's face and the chosen illustration match! The performer then solves the cube instantly, and when you look at the book, all of the cubes in the illustrations have been solved as well!" It's an incredible routine that deserves all the praise it gets. Craig was a huge fan and gave it a 100% score. As for Ryland, he followed up with 150%.
The last magic product reviewed for this week's show is Post Trick by Gustavo Raley. This routine uses prop money that can easily be replaced with real money if you prefer. There's also extra sticky notes and a special gimmick included as well. Vanishing Inc. describes this routine as, "An insanely visual transformation of Post-It Notes to a stack of $100 bills. Following along the same lines of Stacked and Watch This, this amazing effect from Gustavo Riley is a perfect fit for social media magic videos and virtual magic shows.
However, since you can show the bills from all sides in the end and the whole thing resets instantly, "Post Trick" is also great for close-up magic or street magic situations as well." It's a super easy to perform routine and it already comes ready out of the box. Craig and Ryland enjoyed this product, giving it a 90% and 95% rating respectively.
