The Blurb

If you’re looking for a practical, reliable and undetectable tool for secretly reading what your spectators have written… You’re looking for the Hpad.

Months of design and development have gone in to ensuring that the Hpad meets the needs and expectations of modern mentalists. The Hpad comes as a full set that includes a DVD explaining all the moves you need to know to use the device, as well as two routines – an ACAAN and a magic-square effect.

The gimmicked marker pen has been specially manufactured to make sure that it’s very comfortable to use and easy to read. Also supplied is another gimmick that can be fitted to a Sharpie.

The notepad used is made by Rhodia, so it’s easy for you to refill yourself – simply buy a refill pack from a stationary store or Amazon.

What’s included:
Hpad
Gimmicked marker pen
30-minute instructional DVD
PDF of additional ideas
Extra Sharpie gimmick

Key features:
Instantly obtain information in full view of your audience
Very clear writing
A7 size notepad – perfect for close-up
Familiar style of notepad
A method for resetting immediately is built into the notepad – you can reset right in front of your spectators
Polypropylene covers ensure that your notepad will last as long as possible

Jheff's Guide

WHAT IT IS:
Gimmick with routine(s) included

HOW ACCURATE OR COMPLETE THE BLURB IS:
Mostly accurate.

WHAT’S NOT INCLUDED THAT YOU NEED OR NEED TO KNOW:
The gimmick requires that you use an A7 pad with eight binder rings.  These are very common in Europe, but hard to find in the U.S. I’ll also note the technology used here is the same that is used in PSYPHER.

SUITABLE VENUES:
Close-up, Walkaround

JHEFF’S JUDGMENT:
This is a beautifully made pocket-sized notepad that does everything the blurb claims. Since one of the features is that it uses an everyday pad that is easily refillable, it is hard for me to be enthusiastic about this in regards to U.S. performers, especially when there are alternatives, but if you have easy access to refills, then this pad certainly works as promised and is recommended.
