The Blurb


These gimmicks are the most powerful tools a magician or mentalist can use. It’s really very difficult to believe that with such a little and inexpensive gimmick, you can produce the quality and the quantity of effects that look like real miracles.

You can write letters, numbers, check marks, etc.surreptitiously, in front of the audience, giving the impression that it was written well before the event or effect. It gives you limitless possibilities.

These quality Vernet Writers are available in four different styles (sold separately):

  • TT Type- 4 mm. grease marker
  • TT Type- 2 mm. pencil lead
  • Boon Type- 4 mm. grease marker
  • Boon Type- 2 mm. pencil lead

These writers are refillable and include a pin to help extract the lead.

My Comments

I shouldn't have to explain what these are and I won't. However, the quality of the gimmick is what you should be interested in. I'm sure you're familiar with Vernet's famous thumb-shaped product. This is the same but outfitted with a small grease marker (to simulate a Sharpie's writing) or pencil lead. The boon is made from the same plastic material and is put into place using adhesive, rather than worn. The adhesive isn't bad, but experienced mentalists will probably want to switch for a much better one.
