Hello everyone.

Currently, I perform Bebel's Repro Retro (not the first 2 four of a kind productions the way he did it at FISM, I use my own productions), and Punk'd by Kevin Ho.

I am looking for other reset routines and where I can research them. Even though books and manuscripts can be hard to come by in Japan, I am willing to do the shipping and handling overseas etc... =)

I am an old school hard copy book / print guy =) so recommending old books and what not will not hit a brick wall with this young magician =) (Is 26 young?).

Meh, if you must, DVDs will do as well.... but only if I am in a good mood and I can forgo my coffee and magic book at a nice Café time, all in order to lock myself in my tiny room with my TV >_<

1) Art of Astonishment Vol. I - Paul Harris.(original and variations).
2) Card File - Jerry Mentzer. (Randy Tanner Variant and my fav).
3) The Card Magic of Nick Trost - Nick Trost. (Nick's own simple but effective).
4) Secrets of Brother John Hamman - Richard Kaufman. (The original inspiration for "Reset", "Underground Transposition", a fav of mine).

There are more I'm sure....

Cardamagically,
Dom. :) ;)

Their is also Retro Repro (I believe that's the name) by Bebel. This is on his recent DVD release.

Another couple are "Re-Set 21" by Jason Randall from "Magic for Professionals" (1982) and Walt Maddison's "Boomerang" which can be found in the booklet "Aces" (1982).

Just to clarify, Reswindled was published in the June 2006 issue of MAGIC Magazine in Joshua Jay's Talk About Tricks column. An updated handling will be featured in my new book High Spots, which will be available in March.

Reset Reset by Earl Nelson is excellent. It's in his book Variations Revisited. It also might be on his DVD if I'm not mistaken. His book has a lot of great material. If you can get it, do so.

Caleb, I apologize, I knew it was in June. Don't know why I wrote down April...Anyways, I bought High Spots at Andi's and it's great! :D
