I'm lookin to buy this dvd but was wondering if anybody has had experience with it. It looks almost too good to be true but if you own it and have an opinion, please let me know. Thanks in advance.

I have it and was extremely disappointed... the spectator cant handle the deck and the gimmick in my opinion is very visible. Stick with normal locator cards. This is not any better than others. Martin A Nash´s Infinity is still best key card I know.

Gary Oulette used this same control in a book he published in the 80's.

I checked my Library: It's Gary Ouellet's ProControl.

Are you saying ProControl is the same as Rudy Hunter's control or the same as Martin Nash's Infinity?

I think they are saying that Rudy Hunter's control is a rip of Ouellet's... which isn't surprising considering his "Hunter Shuffle" is not original either.

Pro control is the new Hunter control. Infinity is clever and can be done with a borrowed deck.

It's a Magic Makers DVD. Enough said.

This is really sad. I have Rudy Hunter's book "The Buddha and the teddy bear" and it is great. Mentalism and ideas that really are workers.

Sad it has come to this with him.

I just wanted to say this. True, they can not take the cards in their hands and shuffle them or play with them. BUT. There is a routine where they can cut the cards themselves with the gimmick in the deck. This is nice. Also, if you are used to other locator cards, what is nice about total control is you can spring and bend the cards however you want and it does not affect the gimmick in any way. You never have to worry about it once you make the gimmick. You can do everything you can do with other locator cards. Also, what I like about it is that there are no giveaways if you make it correctly. I have made mine so that they can stare right at it and not see a thing. With many loacator cards I found that even with Breather, there is a gap on all sides when the deck is on the table. This is not so with total control. The deck can be squared on the table and you can literally look at each edge and not see a thing unless you really get in there and examine it. PLUS. one thing you can not do with other locator cards is fan the deck, spot your gimmick from the back and place the selection right next to it, close the fan and your gimmick is now right where you want it! With other locator cards you can not do this unless you mark the back. Total control is totally inperceptable, easy to use, and offers some unique possibilities not possible with other locator cards to the best of my knowledge.
