If you have his "Revolutionary Coin Magic" and His "Secrect Files" 1 and 2, then you already have everything that is on 45. Smile

I do not have anything of Jay Sankey unfortunately. I would like to know more opinions of people who have at least seen a little bit of this tape or more. Let me know what you think.
Thanks for your reply Rcitgo. Smile

Brian,
I've got Sankey's Secret Files Vol. 1-2, plus The Very Best of Jay Sankey Vol. 1-3.

My recommendation is The Very Best of....Vol. 2, simply even for "Back In Time". I thought this was a good trick when I saw it, so I learned it. Now, I've been having friends who have seen ALL of my tricks, say that's the best trick I have!!! (I'm still not sure if that's a compliment or not) Smile

I love Sankey's stuff. I have Best of 1 - 3 and Secret Files 1 & 2. Out of all of those, Volume 2 or Best of is the worst. True, Back in Time is a good trick (I've been doing it for almost 10 years) but everything else on that DVD is really lousy.

As I posted in another forum,,
I have alot of Sankey stuff for the most part I think it derived from other stuff - like Tarbell.
He presents it in a real silly manner - thinking it will appeal to a younger audience.

He pretty much has turned me off.

A spectator freely picks a card, and places it back inside the deck. You do the slop shuffle, apparently turning cards face up, face down, completely mixed up.

You then show the top card (which isn't there's) and hand it to them face down. They wave the card over the deck, and 'travel back in time', and you then fan the cards showing them to be all the right way (a la Triumph) and the spectator looks at the card in their hand, and it's their original card.

Very cool.

As for Sankey, I admit that when I first watch the tapes/DVDs, I'm somewhat disappointed in his stuff. But after watching it again, and trying some of it, it turns out to be pretty good. That's why I ended up with alot of his videos.

I know I'm a little late on this, but to answer the original question, the video is basically 45 sleights or moves done with mostly cards and coins. There are no tricks. In fact, Sankey doesn't say a word on the tape. The effects are shown and then explained using multiple camera angles when necessary. As others have commented, most of this stuff is available on Sankey's other tapes, but 45 is a cool thing to have. Hope that helps.

Thanks to everyone who responded. Especially you Petrakos. I will purchase the tape in good time and see for myself how it goes. Your comments are most appreciated.

I really like "45". There are plenty of little moves, vanishes and flourishes that can be worked into any routine.

And despite the fact that not a word is said, the explanations are crystal clear.

Sankey is fantastic.
I have Revolutionary Coin Magic and the Very Best of Jay Sankey 1, 2 and 3 and Sankey 45. Jay has some seriously cool stuff on offer here. Highly recommended.

In answer ro your question Brian, 45 is actually quite good...but...the explanations for the sleights are not done with Jay telling you verbally. Instead he shows you the moves required using various camera angles and repeats the moves. He emphasises the key parts/moves several times as well. An example of this is when he shows you the Pass. Trying to learn the pass from this method is very difficult as he doesn't address stuff like angles, etc. It's simply this is the position of your hands, zoom in, you do this next, repeat, repeat again, then you do this, repeat, repeat, again, and so on and so forth until the move is completed.
With the Striking Vanish he emphasises the correct way then shows the wrong method by looking at the camera and shaking his head.

Don't let this put you off though as there are some really nice things taught on this DVD. You are bound to learn something that you can use from the 45 sleights on offer.

I hope this helps.

Agree with Mistro music on 45 is great, the intros on secret files are not bad either. Nice explanation of the flying shuttle on 45. I am going to use this DVD as a resource for along time to come.
