The Swami Gimmick or Nail Writer is one of the most useful Gimmicks a mentalist could own.
It allows you to make written prediction which are absolutely amazing. For example. you write a prediction on the back of your business card and hold it up. A spectator is now asked to count the change in his pocket, and call out the exact amount. The prediction card is now handed over to any spectator, and when he reads out the prediction, you have predicted the exact amount of change in the pocket of a spectator you never met before. There are no stooges or forces, and this little gimmick makes hundreds of effects like this possible.
The Swami Gimmick is not a push button trick, and requires some handling practice. Some effects are possible with a few minutes of practice, and some require more effort for more miraculous effects. A serious student can perform a complete act with the help of this gimmick, which can bring him many times the return for his modest efforts and investment. Unlike conventional magic shows, you have no apparatus to carry, allowing you to perform with this at any place and any time.
We supply you four of the gimmicks, plus spare leads and a comprehensive instruction book. The Gimmick is so small that it is easy to misplace; having a few spare is a must for anybody using this. Also with more than one gimmick you can add to the effect, as the instructions will tell you.
The instructions supplied are in the form of a 31-page booklet. Besides the details about the use of the Gimmick, you get tips and pointers on presentation, plus several complete routines to perform, ranging from the very simple which require only a few minutes practice, to the absolutely incredible. The book alone is worth several times what we charge for the complete outfit.
