I am wondering if Richard or anyone else plans to buy this. If so, maybe you can review it here. Thanks everyone!

It was Jeff Sheridan who created Tenyo Enchanted Strings which I always liked for its clever method, attractive appearance, and interesting effect.

Steve I really like the looks of the boxes being solid blocks of wood routed out on the inside with the magnet catches to keep them closed. For the price I expect them to sell well before they go up. Like to see a video of this one. The minute I seen this I knew this is something everyone here will like to see.

So I did some research and here is what I discovered...

1- This appears to have first been released in 2017 by the same manufacturer and was the same product.
2- The selling price is/was $125 (but sold by some for $99) and will probably go back to $125 eventually.
3- There was a demo made by someone but appears to no longer be available. I can’t find it.
4- Reviews overall appear to be good but complaints included symbols on each box not being equally as dark and some boxes had obvious differences in the wood making one box in the set of five stand out from the other four. In essence, quality or should I say matching control leaving something to be desired.

I would imagine if this was a Magic Wagon release, it would be made of teak, a better and more consistent production resulting in collector’s quality perfectly matching boxes, and cost around $300.

Anyway, there you have it!

Well it sucks if the boxes arent a close match. Symbols not evenly as deep would drive me up a wall. But none of that matters as they choose a box and item mix them up while performers back is turned so doesn't matter if the boxes are all a different color or marked 1 Tru 5.

POINTS TO REMEMBER:

There is no force. Each box contains only one object and there are no duplicates. The performer turns his back when the selection is made and the boxes are mixed. The performer does not ask any questions and there is no form of ‘magician’s choice’, etc. Boxes can be examined and the effect can be repeated with a different outcome. Instant reset. Comes with all the props including detailed instructions.

In fear of beating a dead horse.... here is a review video of Synchronicity.
Looks good easy to see things that let you know how it basically works if you don't fall asleep.
I can see many ways to use these.
Even including my Magic Padlock would work well with these. ;)
Boxes look better in whatever darker wood seen in the video.
You can see this review starting at 24:50 in the video.

I fined it hard to believe Collectors Workshop turns out all bad uneven matched boxes. I only seen one complaint the ESP signs in the tops didn't match in darkness but fixed it with fine tip marker now he really likes them. :D

There you have it.

Thanks for the link to the review. Boxes look nice, and I think I have an idea about how it works as well.

David, yes I believe that's it. So really nothing special, though they appear to be nice boxes.

I suppose if you feel certain you have discovered another way the trick could work, then my (and David's) guess is wrong.

I wanted to know what m***d meant. Got it!

My suspicion is maybe it is that or perhaps something else. :shock:

Looks good. Demo videos look good. Don't like it is anodized black on aluminum which will wear off and is light weight which by reviews is not liked doing Okito box moves. Comes with 2 gimmick half dollars and a set of custom cards. So can't examine coins or cards. If your not good with Okito box moves may be a problem.
