Well, Gaston is one of the most talented Magicians around, and this is a must buy. He likes using the Top shot, and some of his magic is very difficult, but other aspects are more simple. I would say you need a lot of guts to pull off some of the moves he does, but the visual aspect is amazing, when watching the performaces, your jaw will hit the floor. When you first start watching it, you will think you are watching some strange cheesy film, but it gets to the point when you get to the magic.

I found Gaston's video highly entertaining. I will mention that his explanations can be hard to follow due to his English if you are not already fairly familiar with card magic.

Teaching : 7/10 (for me it was fine, others may complain)
Effects : 9/10

Effects......

S.N Cardcase : The box vanishes off a pack of playing cards.

Very visual. Just like it sounds.

Call of the Jokers : This is a sandwich routine in which two jokers find three selections. The first selection is caught between the jokers, then proceed to change into the final two selections.

I really liked this effect. However I am unhappy with one moment which feels unnatural to me. Watching the performance I'm sure you'll see it as well. This is easily covered with reaction misdirection and some proper body language.

Wild Aces : A one at time ace production utilizing Piet Forton's popout with a mis-production and startling change at the end.

Can you say difficult for the last move? But incredibly visual and very fun to practise.

Re-Test : a version of Paul Harris' Reset with one packet inside the card case.

By far my favorite version of Reset. I performed this all the time after learning it. I'm sure you will enjoy it. I was perhaps my favorite piece on the tape.


Hipnosix : A vanish and reproduction of three coins utilizing a playing card. For a finale 3 more coins are produced then even a jumbo coin.

A very fun routine with a lot of nice ideas. I'll never perform it, but incorporated some of the moves immediately into my repitiore.

Reverse Matrix : The title is self-explanitory. This is a very very clean version.

Torn and restored card : A visual restoration for a torn card.

I loved this move. The restoration is very very visual. You'll want to try it in a mirror.

Through and Through : a signed card penetrates a glass table.

I love this effect. EVERY time I am in the vicinity of a glass table I perform it for somebody, anybody. EVERY time. I loved it.


When I first started to really perform card magic for people, there were two tapes from which I performed material off of. One was Gaston Quieto's Twenty. It is a winner all the way.

Awesome DVD. Very visual. I'm not a huge fan of his teaching and some of the angles during the instruction.
