Review: 3-Way Mirror by Sean Yang and Magic Soul

[vc_row][vc_column width=”2/3″][vc_custom_heading text=”Reviewer: Bernard Sim”][vc_column_text]

This is not a magic effect but rather a tool that all sleight of hand magicians should own. Though this is not something new, the material used is new though. The mirror is not made of glass and it is very safe to bring it around and very light in weight too.

Below are two pics of this mirror.

Haha, kidding. This mirror is what I use for my practice on my desktop. I have a full body size mirror at home where I use to practice too and no I’m not vain because I have a full size mirror 😛

These are the actual pics of the mirror.

From the above pics (are you curious about the numbers written on the back of the card?), you can tell that the mat part of the 3-Way Mirror can be adjusted to suit your need. However, there is a downside when you open the flaps to have a bigger surface mat, your mirror may be scratched if they are placed face down. The mat when in contact with any surface may also attract lint. You may want to get a lint roller to clean the mat side of the 3-Way Mirror.

See the video for a practice session I did:

I think the mirror is a wonderful tool. It helps you to see all your weak points and also have a rough idea what your side will look like to a spectator. It is versatile and being light weight, it is easy to bring around. However, I am not really keen on using it as a close up mat for performance or a serious practice session. Having said that, I think this would be a hit if you are at a magic convention. Imagine jamming with peers using the mirror and the mat. The built is relatively good, the mirrors are very clear even though they are not made of glass. It packs small to an A4 size.

This is a wonderful product which all close-up magicians should have. At US$39.95, I think the price is very reasonable. One should invest in such tools to make the sleights/ moves better, especially for angle sensitive effects. Highly recommended.

P.S. If you are still curious about the numbers on the back of the cards, they are marked based on Aronson’s Stack 😉
