Devine & Conquer, Three Frye, N5 and Blind Faith | Craig & Ryland's Review Show
Every week the father and son team looked at the latest and greatest products released to the magic community. If the product is good or bad they will let you know. Let's break down the four products they reviewed this week and how they are designed.
3 Frye Coin Trick
The first product for this week's show is 3 Frye Coin Trick by Charlie Frye. This is designed to be a wonderful take on the legendary Chris Kenner's beloved 3 Fly coin magic routine using three different coins: a copper coin, a silver coin and a poker chip. Each of the coins are crafted to perfection by Tango Magic. Included with this product are the instructions to perform three of Charlie's routines as well. As a big coin magic fan, Craig enjoyed this product and gave it a strong 97% rating with Ryland following very closely with a 98% score.
The second product is Stephen Tucker's Blind Faith. In the hands of the right magician, this is a brilliant routine that's easy to do, very visually and ends with a huge kicker. All this product uses is the four provided cards that you can easily slip into your pocket or wallet. This is truly the workers monte routine. Craig and Ryland enjoyed this product, awarding it with a 96% and 115% rating respectively.
The third product we looked at is N5 BLACK Coin Set by N2G. Following up from N3 and N4 released in 2014, N5 is supposed to be the newly upgraded coin prop. It's an upgraded coin prop that makes a black Chinese coin with a real hole in the hand instantly change colour without any unnecessary movement. Craig gave this trick a review of 40%, citing that it's not worth the full value and there's other ways you can achieve the effect with other magic products. As for Ryland, he followed up with a 20% rating.
Divine and Conquer
The final product this week is Divine and Conquer by Leo Reed. The idea is simple: two selections are made from a deck of cards with only a single thought. Yet the magician can not only name one of the selections but they will also produce the other one with perfect accuracy and zero sleight of hand. This combines mind reading and magic to create a direct demonstration for your guests. Craig loves this product and gave it a 100% score, something he doesn't do often. Ryland was equally as impressed, giving the product a 119% rating. There's nothing negative about this at all.
