I honestly think once you read the instruction sheet, you'll be delighted with your purchase.

But don't be like me! Actually get out there and use the thing!

I think that TI is a wonderful effect that is perfectly suited to a powerful delivery.

Syncronicity (if it is the one I use) is significantly differen. The spectator can choose three completely free choice cards and they match perfectly to the ones that were in your wallet before the effect even started. Of course there is a novel method that makes it go. But I have done Syncronicity and TI back to back and had tremendous response.

Both are killer effects.

From that auction description, the Synchronicity effect sounds very similar to T.I. but if the description is accurate, then it may be an even stronger effect than T.I. The part that caught my attention in the description was this quote:

"every time you remove your card from your pocket first!"

You cannot do this with T.I.

I got T.I. and in the booklet there's an explanation for you to be able to pull out your card first. If I'm not mistaken, Nardi's demo using this also showing that he took his card first before the spectator.

I can do it I guess, but I'm using two kraft manila envelopes. Works the same with same ending too.

Why not just f---- thee card from an ordinary shuffled deck and you therefore have no worries at all about the deck.

The impact of this routine is that the spectator handles the cards and makes the cut to find the cards.

Why not the Criss-Cross, or Cut Deeper, etc.?

If you don't like the effect, don't buy it or do it. There is no point in your continuing to argue the different
ways it could be done. By all means feel free to do it another way if you like.

Corbett, I was not arguing. Just pointing something out. I love the effect. John

Cut deeper? Three times? Even the most uneducated audience will pick it up fast.

True. The illusion here is the chance of getting that three cards out of a deck that match with our prediction. Smile

Failed, In the TI demo, there is only one cut to locate three cards, not three.

Yeah? So? What are you trying to say? Synchronicity will allow them to cut three times to get their cards?

Yeah I did, but then you said something why not forcing three cards. The beauty of this trick is they touch and cut the deck by themselves. They cut anywhere they want, take three cards, and that's it.

My point is that that effect can be done with an ordinary deck and a simple force. Amen. I'm outa here. John

That's true, but even a simple force will require you to keep holding or touching the deck. Unless you want them to do Cut Deeper Force for three times, which I think is not wise since it will give the method away.

I could do this with regular deck tho, and it looks extremely clean, but let's save it for another rainy day Smile
