I think the Sankey force people are referring to is the Wichita Slip force.
Also Patrick Kun's Mirror Force is also quite nice and doesn't show the back of the card Smile

I use this and the riffle force mainly. Shinobi only for select effects where it doesn't matter if I see the card I'm forcing.

That's the force I was referring to; "Wichita Slip Force" Thanks for identifying it for me.

Thanks for your comments on the new show guys. Sorry if Dave and I haven't been around as much we've been very busy - especially Dave.

Anyway yes the problem with the Shinobi is that you have to see the card your forcing. Obviously thus is a consideration (which I forgot to mention) but the actually force is still the best I've ever seen. There are many routines that seeing the card doesn't matter. For those routines when it is an issue you can either look away, re-routine the effect your performing or just use a different force. Although the Shinobi is very good there are other great forces as well. Some forces work best in different situations and the Shinobi is no different.

Bottom line I think the Shinobi concept is well worth learning but obviously that's just my opinion!

Hay Craig did you visit Boston, MA? Where did you get the hoodie from? I hope you liked my city.


Hey!

Most of my family live in Hudson so I go over there to visit whenever I can. I LOVE Boston - favourite city ever - but the airport is a nightmare!

Thanks for watching the show BTW!

Can anyone honestly say if witness is worth getting , and would it be practical to use strolling?


I really like witness. Yes it's a single trick DVD but I think there are times when that is acceptable. Witness is one such situation, it's a real worker, if it was included on a multi effect DVD I would probably say that it was worth the price of the DVD. Although you don't get a gimmick it's still a very good workable routine.

Does this help?

I've had Witness for a while I really like it. The silly, silly minor issue I have had is whenever I buy bags they have logo's slapped all over them, I need to some some label free ones.

In that case I prefer Slim bij Craig Petty ;-). The bluf shift is as easy and works as good. And you get 8 routines. And the first is worth the price of the dvd. just my opinion ....

I noticed no one has mentioned the Naked Zombie Ball. Maybe it was just me, but the demo video of that really didn't do anything for me. I LOVE a good Zombie routine but from what I saw, that wasn't the inspiration to pull mine out and start working with it. I've never really found the versions without the gimmick to be very magical - the ball just stays too close to the hands for it to be believable, at least from my perspective. Any other thoughts?

BTW Guys, if you're interested in the Shinobi control or the force you can save yourself $25 dollars by buying "SHINOBI" from Theory 11 as a download for $4.95. I think it has most of what's on the 430 dollar DVD. That's what I did.

I don't get the appeal of "Witness". The girl is amazed because the card changed in her hand not because it is in a bag.

"Witness" is strictly a magician fooler. For lay people it adds zero to the effect.
