You all know me, and yes I'm back again asking for help. I am looking for a really strong mentalism effect or effects. I have books, and videos. I'm just looking to buy some marketed effects. Could someone give me some reviews on some really strong mentalism effects? Looking to do it for close up work and no sleights or switches please. No higher then $100 please, thank you...... Smile

I don't know if this will answer your question, but I rarely use marketed effects. In fact, I use only two. One I'm not talking about (because I promised somebody that I wouldn't) and the other is mark Strivings' SUC. never leave home without it!

Get a bunch of really nice crystals at your local New Age store.
Use them for Kurotsuke (Max Maven effect) with an improvised bag. No gimmicks, no setup, nothing to write, effect is "believable" and gems are interesting in their own right. I love it.

Buy a NW; Learn some good pure forces (the 7, the rose, etc...); Learn one or two line of cold reading; learn 1 good book test; learn a way to peek; Learn a good tarot reading; Read a book of NLP (even if you don't use it, people like to hear pseudo-sientific terms todays).

Mix them, find your style, your prepared...

See you soon,

I'm not sure that, as what you and some other posters seem to think, cold reading can be restrained to a couple of learnt lines,... but that's another debate...

Uri doesn't want it to be known he really is using trickery? Smile

Best wishes

The above is all rubbish, except that which you chose to believe

Without trying to sound harsh, sounds as if a magician wants to do mental magic, NOT mentalism. And those of you who do MENTALISM know excatly what I am talking about.
