Customer reviews for The Chicago Opener
I had forgotten that Chicago Opener also goes under the name of Red Hot Mama, which I already have, but have long since forgotten about.
Nevertheless I'm so glad I purchased Chicago Opener from Art of Magic because of some of the refreshingly different moves that I saw displayed in this particular version of the effect. I now have a significantly stronger effect at my disposal. John Wilson is a great demonstrator.
When Dan & Dave said this was one of their go-to effects, I bought it without second thought. Boy, was I mistaken.
After watching the trailer alone, the method become clear as day as this is probably the sloppiest performance I've seen in a product released, and for it to be on Art of Magic and featured? That's beyond me.
I like John Wilson's magic, but this... Well, you get the point.
