For the first time, a trick that is POINTLESS on purpose!
You hold up an "ordinary" ballpoint pen and challenge your soon-to-be stunned spectators to follow which way it's pointing.
No matter how easy it seems, they quickly and repeatedly realize how fun it is to be wrong!

Customer reviews for Pointless
A well made gimmick and a great trick. I think it's time the DVD get converted into a download though. It's 2023, who has DVD players these days?
Gregory Wilson is a great teacher and entertainer and I am still gaining the confidence with this routine. The reactions have been great thus far and I enjoy doing Pointless then follow that with Recap (revisited).
Nice to carry in the pocket and pull out when needed!
I have really been enjoying Pointless! The fact that I can carry a pen around in my pocket and have a good 5 min routine with me at all times is perfect!
This is a A+ routine when Gregory does it, but I feel like it's only when he does it that it plays hard. His con man style presentation makes this quite comical and I think while the tip is magically travelling back and forth from end to end, the presentation is really more of a conman style which isn't for me.
Great product though, great quality and tutorials are nice.

Ask a question
asks: Hi! I love “pointless” by Gregory Wilson. I would really like to purchase only the pen in case I lose the gimmick in transit. I would be willing to pay $25 without the dvd for it. Otherwise, I will try to make my own, which can be done for $2 each but I do not want to rip Gregory Wilson off.
