I've only used a pack of these one time and i wasn't too keen on it, they handle okay but nothing too brilliant, the quality is decent and the stock is okay. the design is basic nothing to "flashy"
nothing i would rave about, but if you like trying out different cards then it's worth looking into
Again the "Affect" is brilliant, but what this routine needs is the Bravado to conduct this effect with the presentation it deserves. also needs audience control..
if your open about your sleight of hand abilities then i would pass on this effect, because the last thing you want is your audience suspecting something.. and then not being able to examine things straight off.
a brilliant effect, you just have to have a full thought out presentation for this
If you were into Gambling Demonstrations this would be the first deck i would recommend!
I don't use Bee's i'm not to keen on the design, and the lack of borders makes it bad to have reversed cards or that lot
but the cards are high quality cards, they have many different variations now, some with borders and some with better back designs.
definitely something to look into to see which brand and style you prefer. but for the "gambler" this is what i would go for
The "Affect" of this effect is brilliant, and the thought process of what this achieves.
now when you stop and think about this, it's just another prediction effect, you could pull out an envelope ask them to name a card and then open the envelope take out a note piece with their card written on it.
you could have multiple methods to a 'prediction effect' because that's what the basic foundation of it.
so what makes this better then any others? nothing as far as i can tell. i'm not keen on "special" decks and wont ever use one.
again the "affect" is good, but having it not be examined is one thing, not being able to use it for anything else is another, and the "stiffness" for which you go through the cards is the last.
there have been many ways to do this "non-gimmicked" and i employ people to search those ideas out before buying a deck only for that 'effect'
While it may give more "options" then a Svengali deck it still has the same if not more 'restrictions'
audience management is a must with a deck like this, and not the 'cleanest' of handling options either.
the second you start doing things with a 'special' deck that you can't recreate with a 'normal' deck is when people start suspecting it's a 'trick' deck and will want to examine it.
this also creates bad habits and sloppy technique
While this is a step up from most "bill change" effects it's quite overpriced for what you get, the 'gimmick' takes time to make, and if your not comfortable working with it could look very awkward.
i agree with Iantense i wouldn't start off straight away with this if your not used to "bill change effects"
the "psychology" behind handing out the money is fine, if you had the "ability" to change money.. why would you have to change it back before they could examine it? but it does take audience management.. not for fear of them taking your money, but for them wanting you to "do it" to their money
Like the Split Spades you can tell these cards were meant for the "card magician" in mind
handles beautifully, and the designs have an high class element to them. the jokers are "classy" and the Ace of spades is elegant and 'magic' looking for lack of better word at the moment.
worth every 2 pence
A Great set if your just getting into sponge ball magic, durable and with care they can last through quite a lot.
a good soft to firm ration, which makes them easy to 'compact' and hold there shape quite well.
for the price it's worth looking into if you want to start out with sponge balls
A Great Alternative to "Standard Bicycle" Cards. they handle well and the back designs why nothing "mysterious" look fairly standard, not sure if I'm a fan of the "bigger pips" but i can understand how it would work better for a parlor setting.
The creator is easy to get a hold of and will answer all your question, they already have 'sepcial' decks to purchase while expensive worth looking into
Things like this need "audience management' it also puts 'restrictions' on exactly how the process will go.
you have to make sure they shuffle it right, and if things go "wrong" it will require a reset
i've never fancied or used any kind of "special" decks, it restricts what you're able to do without the knowledge of actual "Card Technique"
i wouldn't even recommend this to "beginners" because it create bad habits and take away from actually learning how to do thing son your own
A Good "Multiple Bill Change" it's good for walk around work. you have to have good audience management with this as things cannot be examined, and it really need justification for some of the moves.
for some reason the ending seems almost "anti-climatic" to me..
Recommended only for the thinking behind this, as it's more of a 'concept' versus a 'routine' or an 'effect'
while this doesn't require any gimmicks or strings, you have to have the right conditions for this to work out. the wrong surface, the wrong "object" and it's useless.
i would not recommended this for the 'only' method to use, but it's a good 'concept' to know encase you were ever in the right situation
The Advanced tag was because it takes presentation to pull of effects of this nature
For the serious coin worker this would be an investment that should be looked into.
as a beginner it would be best to get some 'coin sleights' in your repertoire before attempting this.
while the 'teaching style' is good, it really lack's the in depth explanations, and some moves they just flash a name and don't really go into it in detail.
The effects are brilliant coin pieces, and if you're into "Coin Matrix' style routines this would be a good look about. not for every performing situation though, some have tough angles you have to really practice and look out for
Daniel Garcia, a creative mind in magic but yet at times underwhelms.
While Void, .44 and Timeline 2.0 stand out as strong seemingly "Impromptu" effects, which are well thought out and motivated actions, although in Void you really have to sell the fact that a "straw" can penetrate a dollar bill
Visa just seems like a 'filler' effect nothing 'devious' about it and it looks quite bland. this DVD could have done without it
Jacob's Ladder is 'visually' good though the angles have to be watched, and the 'move' could be caught out on if you're not 'smooth'
At times i don't know if Daniel Follows through with all his thoughts, some of his effects seemed not quite 'finished'
If you know me you know i fancy Metal Bending and do it regularly in professional gigs
The Teaching is very good, he goes in detail the parts you need to know, it also helps that he is 'teaching' someone in studio that ask question people might be asking at home.
The Moves are the standard 'metal bending' moves taught by Banachek, he really doesn't offer anything 'new' he just combined moves together to create a 'routine'
he does teach a key bend which is useful, and also a 'bend' if you ever have to deal with 'hecklers' which is bold but should get your point across.
The thing i don't like about this is it's a 'routine' plain and simple and it looks like a 'routine' some of his moves are unmotivated and some contradict what he says and does. this is not a 'demonstration' of metal bending this is a 'routine' that involves Metal Bending.
if your keen on Metal Bending i would look into Richard Osterlind and Banachek to name a few
