They tend to be pretty fast on their shipping. Many times the day after the purchase.
But I'm thinking that they may be a bit tuckered right now. Looks like they settled for just getting the DVD out. That means there were problems launching the website.
So they probably called it a night and may not get to the job of shipping until later tomorrow if not later.
Frankly I'm just happy they managed to get the DVD available for purchase.

Hmmm...personally, I would have loved to get this ASAP, but I'm going to be holding off until the cards are released so I can save on shipping.

Good ol' stingy me Smile

I just ordered mine as well. I was hoping to pick up a few decks of cards to go with it, But I'll pick some up later. By the way, Has anyone seen what these are going to look like yet? So far its been a big secret.

The effects on the DVD and lecture notes are far beyond your abilities. (They require mastery of the mechanic's grip.) It would only break your heart.

The ace of spades design is on the Theory11 website. The overall design hasnt been released, but to give you an idea of what they may look like, this is Si Scott's website (the guy who designed them): http://www.siscottstudio.com/

Amazing stuff.....

Yeah I saw the ace on the Theory 11 website, I just wondered if anyone had seen the back design or any thing like that. I guess no one has though.

Verifythisnow, Thanks for the link to Si Scott's website. This guy is great! I really liked 'Tank Theory'.

It was a smart move on Chad's part. If you look at Youtube you'll see that the Clip Shift has been sussed by more than a few people, making it one of the best known underground moves around. Pressure is usually placed on those posting the move to remove it but not all do.
This was all inevitable when the Buck twins published Trilogy, which showed the move in the Queens routine but gave no explanation. Some Trilogy buyers were a little upset, sat down and figured it out.
The fear was the the DVD might spawn "tutorials" on Youtube. I'm guessing Chad rightly realized he was risking the tutorials if he didn't publish the move. Anyone who figured out the Clip Shift could have published a how-to and be able to say they haven't copied Chad's method since Chad never revealed it.
Now with the DVD's debut, that excuse won't fly and Chad will get the rewards and recognition he deserves. Everyone wins here.
And to those who are afraid that the move will be as common as the double lift, I kinda doubt it. From what I've seen, it isn't exactly self working.

I intuitively sense that Chad will be getting the magicwoods award for best dvd of 2008!

OK does anyone have this DVD yet? Can you tell me how hard it is to learn the Clip Shift move? I love the effect and would like to learn it but if it is as hard as Lee Asher's Diving Board Double then forget it. I am pretty good with slights but there is a point were it just is not worth it. When you could master 5 other slights in the same time then I feel you have reached that point. So I would love to hear from any of you that have either already received and viewed your DVD or learned it from Chad. Thanks, John

Well maybe one of the other members lives next door to Chad and was able to just walk over there yesterday and pick up his order in person. And many times "special" people, like big time magician and DVD reviews, get advanced copies mailed to them. Although I am not one of them...

So, here's the little that I know-

First, Chad's a super cool, and super nice, guy. He does the move so well- the online video doesn't do it justice.

It can be used as a color change, a vanish, or a full out shift. There MAY be other applications- I don't know.

As far as being sorta-self working- it's pretty darn hard. Now, Chad laughed at me when I was trying it, and told me I don't have the technique down, so maybe it's a LITTLE easier then I think. But it's STILL a hard move. Worth it though.

I'll be picking up a copy pretty soon.

Has anyone received an email to confirm that your 'Surfaced' DVD has been shipped (not the PayPal receipt)?

No. I've read the same question on other boards. Which may mean no one will or they haven't mailed them yet.
