The Raven has been called one of the best tricks of the last decade! Perform visual vanishes like you've never seen. Make coins appear, disappear, shrink or change to a different coin or an entirely different object!
There are no funny moves or sleights. Simply show your hands front and back, then wave one over the other and a coin appears or vanishes! It is that easy and natural (and amazing)! Many additional effects with bills, matchbooks, playing cards and a variety of coin effects can be done. Perform in a coat, even a short sleeved shirt.
This new version of the original Raven has some advantages over the elastic pull that is used with the standard Raven. The Reel Raven can be attached easily and quickly to a variety of places on your person. This increases the possible uses and performing situations. In addition, the increased mobility enables you to attach the Raven in a location where it will be easier to get the loop on your finger.
If you own the standard Raven, there are a few other major differences you will notice. With the Reel Raven, the loop of fish line maintains a steady, fairly gentle tension on your fingertip. With the elastic pull, the tension is stronger and it increases the more the elastic is stretched. This difference might seem awkward at first, but after some practice, it will feel natural and more comfortable. Also, the Reel Raven retracts differently. With the elastic pull, the Raven goes back (into your coat or shirt), with a good amount of force. The Reel Raven uses less force on the recoil. Overall, the Reel Raven is a gentler process than the elastic version.
