I use the shadow stack by Tom Crosbie. It is a great stack and has got a lot of hidden features. Any more features of this stack?

I was looking for some latest feedback on this one. But looks like very few seem to be actually using it.

I got the DVDs awhile ago, but did not find much in the way of usable material. Crosbie said he had been working with a memstack for something like four years. Really, that's all? It's OK for tricks to be derivative as long as they're well-engineered, but I was not too impressed with the thinking. For instance, he has a name-a-card Triumph. It's been done before, but fine. So which method does he use for this version? A push-through shuffle? A Zarrow? No, a cull. I love Kostya Kimlat's Triumph but does it make sense to run through the pack after someone has NAMED a card? Worst of all, one of those Wizard Product Review guys was in the studio helping with the explanations and he says something to the effect, "that is the best version of Triumph I have ever seen!" From my notes I see I flagged one item from the discs, and it's apparently based on an idea credited to Eric Richardson (but built into the "Shadow" stack).
