Richard's track record speaks for itself. I believe him when he says " I have worked very hard to create an effect that is quite possibly, THE STRONGEST SIGNED CARD EFFECT THAT YOU CAN DO ".

Sanders never disappoints me. He is a very crafty, and clever artist/inventor. I am all for improvement on tired techniques. That's what helps us all evolve as artists. And truthfully, with the multiple versions and 2 hour DVD. It's a bargain! Richard has brought all of us some very entertaining effects over the years.

Why make prejudgments now be they negative or positive?

Richard has thus far proven to have a great track record and in time the reviews will be forthcoming. The test of time will tell as it always does. Why bicker when the trick has not even been released yet and no one as of yet has had any hand's on experience with it and or the DVD! Give it a break.....wait....and......see!

Like all Richard Sanders' effects, this is sure to be amazing. Since Extreme Burn, I have become a big supporter of his products. I can't wait to get this.

I agree with Christopher Kavanaugh!

Richards track record speaks for itself.

Extreme Burn is killer always!

Even though I mostly do mentalism now, I still preordered since I know this will be a big hit, and Richard has never let me down on any of the products he promotes and sells.

This is probably one of the strongest card tricks a person can do next to , well in me experience at least

Autograph is more like Sanders effects since it uses gimmicked cards and few technical moves and stuff!

My preorder is in, and cant wait till June 1st when these start shipping.

My bday is June 5th so its just in time.

Thanks

Looks very interesting as usual for Richard Sanders.
I'll have to wait for a review on this one as to the card maneuvers involved as I'm not all that good at finger flicking due to some arthritis in my hand. Looking forward as to its difficulty level. Richard does state that one needs an intermediate level of card handling but that really does not tell me all that much.
It certainly looks very visual with that kicker ending!

~gaffed~


I am of the same mind. I have very small hands and fingers, (no jokes, please) so I usually stay with coins. However, I hope we have the same level of reviews on this one that the Café is known for. Looking forward to it.

I have never been disappointed by a Sander's effect and thus did not hesitate one second to push the pre-order button

There must be something new for Richard to release this as a single trick DVD, so I ordered it. I still can't figure out how the card can be given out at the end without a switch. And, it says "No Switch".

Richard Sanders effects is truely great magic. I truely love "Stickmen 4" and "Card in ear" besides the obvious ones like "Extreme Burn", "Tagged" and "Ring on Shoelace".

Richard Sanders has many alike effects to "Identity" like "Named", "Shaken", "Snowstorm" (Sankey) but what I'm interested in is exactly what Robert wrote above "I still can't figure out how the card can be given out at the end without a switch. And, it says "No Switch".

I would like your reviews to focus exactly on this.

"THE MARKS ON THE BACK OF THE CARD VISUALLY REFORM INTO THE SPECTATOR'S VERY OWN NAME! Yes, the marks VISUALLY REFORM, with no cover whatsoever, into the name of the spectator that you just met! With NO SWITCH... the card is immediately handed to the spectator to keep. It is completely examinable!"

Thas should be the NEW part of this trick, hopefully also with a streamlined handling without 20 wrist kills. One wrist kill will do.

Regards

I perform NAMED and there isn't 20 wrist kills. Only a few moves to accomplish a miracle.

IDENTITY sounds like a major advancement on the plot.

And basically there is nothing wrong with a wrist kill anyway. I believe from a multitude of Sankey and Sankley/Sanders DVD's you are just overexposed to the same moves, and suddenly for a magician those moves signals "foulplay", but to a lay person it doesn't matter.

Anyways, while we are waiting for a review that can make us wiser on the "NO SWITCH" part.

I don't mind the "wrist Kills" and I love the Sanders effect with with random marks changing to marks in the shape of a card (forgot the name). The change is slightly different and of course there is a switch to hand out the signed card. I love the idea of snowstorm but it uses the same change twice in a row. Even if the shaking is consistent with shaking up the snow I still feel twice in a row is a little bit shady looking. We shall see

Switch or no switch, the effect looks great and will get great reactions. I don't get why people are so opposed to switches, they are not noticed by lay people, and if they are then your not very good at them.

Anyway, this is a Richard Sanders effect, the guy who released Interlace, Extreme Burn, Fibre Optics and Tagged, this one will rock!!!

The ad says "With no switch...the card is immediately handed to the spectator" this is clearly showing that at the end of the effect there is no switching. When they see their name on the card it is that card that is handed to them. What MAGIC took place up until this point? Well we are all waiting. I do believe this is one of the good ones though.


Good magic to all,

What do you mean by "Well we are all waiting." Are you saying you deserve to have the modus operandi explained to you hear in an open forum? I think the idea is for people to buy the effect if they want to know how it works. You act like you're entitled and Richard is being a jerk by not explaining the mechanics of the effect.

Hey Darious, we are not concerned with switches. We are looking for new methods. And I´m very interested in knowing whether Richard Sanders, whom I consider to be one of the real innovators has come up with some entirely new.

I do switches all the time, and they easily fly by, even magicians. I´m just curious about new methods.

Best regards

Jan

Hi ixnay66.

I would like to comment on this because I come from the same point of view as Eric. Unfortunately words written is a strange thing, and I do think we tend to over exaggerate their meaning. Especially in a forum where things are written fast and unedited. I believe that what both I and Eric means is, that the only supposedly new thing except for a great effect in "Identity" is the part that says "NO SWITCH". And I assume we are both more than happy to buy this effect, but we would truely like to hear some review comment on the "NO SWITCH" part. We are looking for new methods and is very interested in exactly this part.

We are not at all asking anybody to reveal any kind of method. Nobody is acting like Richard is a jerk. I think it is pretty strong words of you to use, and since words written are peculiar, I could fear that somebody might read it as intolerance on your part. I assume that it is not case, you just wrote your comment fast and unedited. I did get the point though, and that's why I´m answering.

We have all just bought to many effects based on a single phrase/promise. We are very interested in the "NO SWITCH". that's the real new thing about this effect from a method point of view. Is it for real, or is it "from the spectators point of view it is experienced as a switch did not occur". There is a lot of difference between these two happenings from a method point of view.

And please, since this comment was written fast, but edited Smile , then please read it with a smile on your lip. No harm was meant not even the slightest

Best regards

Boy, I wish more posts were like Vraagaard's.

And I wish I knew how to pronounce "Vraagaard".
