* Sylvester Pitch Review *
This is Sylvester the Jester himself in person and on stage performing and teaching his excellent Sylvester Pitch.

Dai Vernon called him a genius and for good reason too.

The video is of excellent quality and the pitch is explained in detail.

If you want to learn a killer utility move that can be done standing or sitting, this is it.

Vernon was right, he is a genius and we are lucky he is sharing.The Sylvester Pitch is the long awaited complete course on Dan Sylvester's Inertia Pass. A revolutionary technique so powerful it lets you continuously produce just about anything without gimmicks or a topit. Coins, jumbo coins, mugs, ashtrays, decks of cards, egg plants, steel nuts, salami, you name it. Detailed instructions and complete routines, wonderful close-ups, over head shots and slow motion sequences, mixed with hilarious sight gags make this tape a true learning experience.

Includes international TV footage of Sylvester The Jester and his Living Cartoon Act. Also get a glimpse at the sound vest and learn Dan's famous "Jumping Ring" where any borrowed ring visibly jumps into your finger. Plus Magi Time, the handy timetable-system for immediate access to your favorite scenes on the video.

* Insto-Mallet Review *
Got this in the mail yesterday, six days after placing my order. It's very well made and works exactly as depicted in the video. It actually looks pretty realistic from just a few feet away. Since this is primarily a gag, though, the realism is a bonus, IMO. Anyway, Sylvester picked exactly the right materials for as realistic a look (in a cartoony kind of way) as possible. The final production mallet is solid enough to swing, although the mallet end does rotate a bit if you don't choke up on it for control.

There's more to the prop than I'd initially supposed. It has some well made internal workings that are briefly but thoroughly explained in the accompanying DVD. You can produce this from a bag, a box, a big interior pocket, from under your arm if it's an opening effect, or from the body sling which is supplied with the prop. Reset, of course, has to be done in private, but only takes a minute or so.

Note: open the shipping box carefully - do not rip the tabs. Sylvester explains on the DVD how you can modify it to serve as a great production box, complete with cartoon label. I didn't realize that when it arrived, so I had to tape my box back together, but it works fine now.

So far I've mainly used this to scare the cat - works great for that - but I'll definitely have this with me at any future show, either as a sight gag for my rabbit-in-hat routine, or just in case it's needed as a fun heckler corrector. I notice that it went up in price by $50 since I purchased it seven days ago (from $150 to $200). However, if you think it's something you'll use, you'll probably be very happy with it.
