This move has been talked about quite a bit lately and I havent seen many reviews and a few iffy people. So hopefully you guys enjoy the review and maybe end up picking up the download or his book if you havent already.

Groove Electric Switch

What They Say: This revolutionary new sleight by underground card expert Doc Docherty will fit right into your repertoire. It's a switch of a card that is outjogged from a fan that is so fooling and so useful that even the best card technicians are raving about it. We give several applications, but know that you'll find dozens of your own too.

As a bonus, we're also including Doc's breathtakingly visual Zoso Change. It's the kind of move that other magic shops would charge you $15 or more to download. With Vanishing Inc. it comes included with the Groove Electric Switch to create a collection of amazing, versatile card magic.

"I watched the video half a dozen times and I still did not have a clue. I was totally fooled." -Allan Ackerman

"Groove Electric combines a clean mechanical action with an optical swindle, and the result is something beautiful to behold" -David Regal

Thoughts: So lets see the total running time is about 18 mins and 30 seconds which seems to be more than enough time to teach the move and some tricks and applications.
Now the explaination isn't to different from ('Cards Remain The Same'http://www.vanishingincmagic.com/magic/magic-books/the-cards-remain-the-same/ )where the move is also explained though he runs through the actual fanning of the cards a bit more which helped mine a nice amount.
The move will take practice and can be quite knacky but as seen it can be completely invisible and fly by laymen and magicians alike.

Teaching: In the 18 minutes the move is run through thoroughly and well the nuances and the knacks of the move are explained aswell as things you shouldnt do while practicing the move, which is also included in a Clog Post (Here http://www.vanishingincmagic.com/clog/po......switch/) Which helps a lot with not rushing the practice and getting every little bit of the move down.

Though obviously the tips he gives can be applied to many moves and tricks.

What Will You Learn? I don't know why are you asking me?...... Oh right I'm doing the review. Continuing on
The Groove Electric Switch
The Groove Electric Colour Change
The DASSUP
Controlling The Cards
Simple Sandwhich
Groovin Hofzniser
The Zoso Change

So you can see there is a nice amount that is included and there are various steals after the move and such very well done.

Applications:
Now I think this is where most people are rethinking not getting this. What will you use it for? Well step back think about all the routines that use switches from the deck. Think about if you want to use a visual colour change. Switches for sandwich routines. Hofznisers Ace Plot.

There are a lot of possibilities for this move. Even if you are just a move monkey this is a lot of fun to practice and you will even start fooling yourself.

Quality: The quality was great. It was filmed outside so abit of outside noise but in no way changes or lessens the learning experience.

Another Great Product From Vanishing Inc hope to see more from Doc and his funky little moves

Penguin is now promoting a "Groove Electric 2.0", can anyone comment as to whether there has been an improvement from the original handling ?
