Shuffle a deck, have a card selected and you've just started what will become the most talked about effect for a long time. Use an ordinary piece of wire to divine a spectator's selected card, and no one will be able to figure out how you did it.
Use a little hot liquid to trigger the wire, or attract attention and use flash paper to reveal the card. Bar magicians even use alcohol and a match to finish the effect. How's that for a stunning card trick!
You can use wiregrams over and over again. People will often want you to "do it again" so we recommend getting more than one for the times this happens. They'll never be able to figure out how you did it, and it will look like real magic.
Wiregarm is a convinient and convincing trick Buy it!
When i got this i was amazed by how 1 bit of wire could do something so amazing. I got such good reactions.. until after about the 15th time i used the gimmick, the gimmick stopped working fully... the 8 of hearts didnt form as well as it should. But Ellusionist are so good, they are shipping me a new one. This may have been just bad luck. YOU HAVE TO BUY THIS!
The price for each was a bit high, but besides that, one of the best tricks I have ever purchased.
When done properly, everything can be examined, before and after the effect, and you might not even need to do any switches. This is an effect for both beginners, and intermediate-advanced performers. Far as I'm concerned, this is a great mentalism effect, as well as for geek magic.
I recommend Wiregrams to everyone, and all of them are worth it, for repetition purposes. I have been considering buying this for over 5ive years, and I do not regret in the least that I finally got it. =D
These are very cool but their time of use can be limited. Finding a way to pull them out can be tricky. If you can achieve all of these they are great but do have a limited life if not handled with care, they will slowly take on their intended shape less accurately the more they are used, and the more 'wrinkled' they are stored.
Of all the magic i perform i always get asked at the end. 'That thing with the wire was just amazing!' And many times the wire through chinese whispers gets turned into a paperclip, hairpin and many other things that makes it seem so much more impossible. If you are looking for that one trick to impress and can carry it on you at all times this is the one.
The impact is in the street litterally. I used a couple of these i let them lay in the street near me till im ready. then bam an effect that acts as a perfect closer. no matter the trick the wiregrams steal away almost everything that happened before hand. You have to be good to compete with this tool.
Great reactions, but very overpriced. With so many people struggling financially why not lower the cost of some tools we use in our routines? Many of us have lowered our pricing for shows so we can at least get work but the cost of things that we need in the shows never seem to accomodate. I'm happy with purchasing and making my own for much less.
These are amazing simple.... It works itself
These things are great. I just keep mine around my wrist like a bracelet. No one expects what's going to happen at all. There's really nothing that can go wrong. I've done it with fire, in a coffee shop with hot water, etc. and it gets great reactions.
so simple, yet extremely powerful. The spectators have no idea what you are doing until it is too late. When using a lighter, many people don't even see the wire changing until the change is complete. The slower the better when using a lighter/match, and if you can make just the number or the suit of their card appear first, make it a two-step production.
