‘Infinity Bend’ Reviewed by V

Eric Ross’ Infinity Bend allows you to perform the most visual coin bends ever seen. Eric came up with the solution to the problem that most coin bends face, the ability to make bends visually without cover or the use of expensive gimmicks.

What makes the Infinity Bend different from any other coin bend, well, the Infinity Bend takes coin bending away from the more traditional “psychological” bend and delivers a visual treat that allows spectators to see their borrowed coin bend at the fingertips.

Effect:

Borrow a coin from a spectator and visually bend it in full view at your finger tips.

Video and Quality: The video is very well edited, put together and produced. It covers everything really indept; quality was great, no problems hearing or seeing what was being said or done.

Teaching: Eric’s leaves no rock unturned. His teaching is is taught with the upmost precision, very detailed; with all tips, tricks and subtleties. Very understandable and easy to follow along and superb.

Method: The methods are very devious and deceptive, yet ingenious. Infinity Bend uses a simple concept, which other products are there have used, but what makes this different is the extra little things (tips, tricks and subtleties) that Eric has added.

Gimmick: Eric teaches how you can construct a gimmick to create a gimmick for the newer or older coins. Very easy to construct and you make make an infinite number of gimmicks in a very short time…very workable and incredible.

Handlings: Eric teaches 2 handlings of these bend, one where the coin is held at the fingertips, at stomach level and as he shakes it, it starts to bend. The other handling is more of an advanced handling of the first. Both are very visual and workable. I perfer the advanced handling of Eric’s. But my favorite version would have to be Brandon Williams, who teaches his handling of the bend. Here the coin is done at eye level and is visually squeezed, such a visual, nice piece.

Angles: The angles can be a problem for some, but with the right confidence and management you can easily control them to make it comfortable for you. The different handlings taught play well for any 1-on-1 situation or a group. For instance, Eric’s Handling is best suited for a 1-on-1 or 3 people group, while Brandon’s is better for 4-? people group and 1-on-1 as it is held at eye level for all to see.

Practicality: Very, all you need to do is carry the needed items and you have some very visual effects in your hands.

Bonus: As a bonus Eric teaches his handling of the coin matrix: Silent Matrix which is mad visual, silent and doesn’t need the use of a magician’s mat. The same method taught for the bend is adapted here. Very sleight set-up, but well worth it.

Overall: Mad visual effects taught in here, Eric has put some very creative thinking in these effects and Papercrane outdid themselves with this one.

I HIGHLY suggest picking up a copy, or at least checking it out.
