Default The M5 System



I bought the M5 system about 2 months ago after seeing it on the *********** website ( it would take weeks to get delivered so i found a site in the UK that stocked it ).
As always i was very anxious waiting for it to be delivered and when it was i couldn't wait to get it opened , as you most of you probably know the the M5 ( or Micro 5 ) is a magnet for PK effect and it is very powerful. it will work through tables and any jacket you might have, it is fantastic.

in the box you get the M5 , a wrist strap to fit it , shim material ,a few shimmed shell coins ( American ) , 2 brass rings,a shimmed match and instruction book.

The M5 fits into a little pocket on the strap but the pocket doesnt close so it could fall out ( i use a safety pin to close it ) , you also need to use an elastic bandage (this is what is use) or other material if you want to use the M5 on your leg for table effects sitting down .
The M5 is very powerful! i pretty much shit myself when i was sitting at a dinner table and this steak knife was travelling its way over to me at great speed! luckily it hit the M5 and not me.
You can use the M5 to make anything move that is affected by magnets ie coins etc , but the real beauty in it is using shimmed items, when i have moved coins people often say " wheres the magnet then ? " but when you use a chicken bone , a match or something of a similar non metallic nature people a blown away. Because you are under there hand when doing the effect they know it has nothing to do with strings or anything like that and the auidence is left speechless. In saying that though as long as you put on a good acting job when making a coin stand up that is also very effective .

you can do many effects with the M5 one of which is making a coin disapper from someone's hand ie do what the raven does but without the setup time ,you would need to do a bit of sleight of hand as the coin would stick to the outside of your sleeve though. i own a raven also and it defo has its place and ill do a review on that later.
Another great effect is making somebodys watch stop which is great fun . basically you can create so many effects of your own just in owning this system , i highly recommend it .

It does tell you to keep it 2 feet away from electrical items just incase , but when i dont have it on its in my camera back pack which is where i keep my phone , Ipod , and digital SLR and none of them have been affected, but i wouldnt let your phone or anything like that sit beside it for hours at a time just in case. i keep it wrapped up in my elastic bandage inside the box that it came in and put it in a pocket on my bag that is furthest away from anything electrical.

I have a tutorial on how to "make" a generic M5.

I will probably be posting it in the VIP section if I ever get it uploaded lol. If not, I am sure you will see it on the forums

Yup most electronics nowadays are better shielded and less sensitive and would not be affected...

I was very intrigued by this system, but I don't want to buy it. I made myself a raven, so maybe i'll have to build myself one of these.

How much different is this than buying a magnet and tying it to your arm ?

Exo, I'm just wondering about that tutorial of yours. Does it look like the M5 is relatively easy to make, or would it be easier to just go and buy one?

Oh, and can you turn off the magnet, or is it always magnetizering things?

My dad actually brought back some hella powerful magnets from China. These things FUCK UP your TV's and computers from like, 2 feet away. You can't turn them off, so if you get one, make sure you are careful with it.
