One of the first tricks I learned as a kid that actually fooled my parents was to thread a nut and bolt, wrap it in a white handkerchief, do your magic, open it up and the nut and bolt were now seperated. The nut had unthreaded itself from the bolt during the brief moment it was wrapped in the handkerchief. The trick evolved several times in the decades since until now you have a masterpiece like Ultracinese, the unquestioned champion of the nut and bolt release in my opinion.
Ultracinese has an issue, its called setup. You will need more than a couple minutes to get set up for this effect. Its also something you will not be able to do right out of the box, it really requires practice...not to make the effect go smoothly but to do the effect at all. Plan on spending some times finding the "sweet" spot with Ultracinese then once you have it, look out because there is no turning back.
You will also have to wear long sleeves with this prop so don't expect to do it on the beach.
The good for Ultracinese far outweigh the bad in my opinion. The setup is without a doubt the issue, but once you are set up, you can perform it anytime and any place and it is instantly repeatable. This effect can be performed surrounded and you are clean at the beginning and clean at the end, hands really are empty and the props are ungimmicked.
I tried doing this over a Quija board and was disappointed with the results. Doing this over any prop, no matter how innocent, will give the impression that magnets are being used (even though the nut and bolt I used were non magnetic. If someone is convinced you are using a magnet in a Quija board to do this, you will not be able to un-convince them unless you do it away from the board. The best way is to do it away from items that could be misinterpreted as gimmicks. The effect is that strong and so unbelievable that your spectators will accept any conclusion they can come up with, so don't give them the opportunity. Ultracinese does not need misdirection or other props, just go with the "spooks all around us" routine and you'll do very well with this prop.
Ultracinese is expensive for a closeup trick. It also has been plagued by international pirates who are selling sub quality units. These units will either arrive broken or break very quickly according to my sources, but really what would you expect when you are getting a $230 prop for $20 - $30.
Ultracinese may be one of THE most amazing PK effects ever. Imagine you pick up a nut and bolt (both may be borrowed), thread the nut on the bolt, and upon your command the nut slowly starts threading itself off of the bolt as if caused by some ghostly action. You can reverse directions upon your command and the nut can wind back up on the bolt. You immediately give the nut and bolt (no switching) to the spectator to keep as a souvenir. Now get this... no thread, no magnets, no reels, no rubberbands, nothing attached to the nut or bolt, nothing hidden in your hand, no switching, no kidding. Sounds to good to be true, sounds impossible, sounds like hype? It is not... it is Ultracinese effect created by Leonardo Milanesi with the support of the Netmagicas company. Ultracinese is one of those rare effects where the method will not disappoint but will inspire you and make you feel like you are doing REAL magic. You will do this for your own amusement and amazement.
There are many other uses only limited by your imagination. Imagine having one card slowly crawl along in sympathy to another card you openly push along, imagine a deck of cards creeping out of it's case to be immediately examined...
Ultracinese is as close to real magic as it gets.
Includes the hand made gimmick that works on a simple AA battery (not included), thorough written instructions, and a bonus DVD giving handling details.
