Which version do the workers out there prefer and why?

Face up or down? Why?

I just received the set yesterday (Face down) and the DVD has effects for both versions. I know it probably just comes down to personal preferences, but since this trick involves something so cleanly visual I was wondering how those who have lived with this for awhile feel.

When I saw wow 1.0 face up version, I found it is suspicious. So I did not buy it. But I found face down version is more nature when show in the ambitious card routine. And it should have more possibility. I definitely will get that one

Do you have to put the card in it? Or could I put the gimmick on the top of the deck or card? Would it work if I made a deck case out of it?

I don't think we need it for ambitious card ending, wow itself is already a good trick stand alone

Both are equally good in the right circumstances. There are too many powerful ways of using them.

I have a face-down version and I think it is far stronger than the face down version simply for the reason the change is stronger.

I went with the face down version because I didn't want to be held to the same card everytime. From my own poll of magicians it seems like most prefer the face up. This is just from my own polling though.

I have a face-up version, which is nice and I like the visual change, but I have no excuse to use the wow during a card routine, because people immidiatly think it must be gimmicked when you put the card in the cardsleeve thingy.

I like the face-down version, as this is more versatile.

The face up version force us to always use the same card, but with the face-down version we can use any card.

I would not do is use it to make an ambitious card, there are better and more visual methods for this, as the pop up.

I definitely prefer the original face up version. If I was a stroller and needed versatility, I'd likely feel differently. But I'm not so I prefer that handling for sure.

I just ordered the face down version and it wasn't possible to choose the face up version. Don't know anything about the handling since I just got instantly hooked on the wizard review. Any point in getting both versions?

I received the face up version which is quite versatile. Would like to have them both though! Smile
