I had a chance to review this during the last Magic Marketplace product review show and here are a few thoughts from that review...

Overall:

This is a nicely produced DVD that teaches you a great switch that you can use for a lot of great routines. Imagine showing a card sandwiched in between 2 Jokers, removing the sandwiched packet from the deck and then showing that the card still in between the Jokers has now changed into a different card! This is the move at the most basic level but you really have to see it to believe it! Here's the demo clip to see exactly what's going on...

Ollie is a smart young fellow who I've had a pleasure to meet and his enthusiasm for magic is contagious. It's obvious that he's put a lot of thought into this move and the 11 routines included.

Initial thoughts:

* The move isn't all that hard to do, you should be doing this in no time really!

* The switch is a fooler and looks so clean that there's no way you could accomplish what you are doing.

* Ollie is a great teacher and really goes over every detail to make sure you are able to understand what's going on.

* The effects aren't all the same, there's a nice variety here that shows the flexibility of what you can do with the Skip Switch.

Final Thoughts:

For all the card guys that are looking for the next move to show off to their buddies or start working on right away then the $25.00 price tag will seem like nothing. It's nice to see a move like this where it truly does look like nothing is happening yet you are so far ahead of your spectators. Job well done Ollie, I can't wait to see what you have in store for us next.

Thanks for sharing your thoughts, Luke. I also just posted a review of this on my blog. Our thinking is basically the same regarding the move itself. The only issue (for me at least) is the price.

One thing you have to say: the producers at Big Blind Media show you exactly what you're getting in the trailer. If you're thinking about purchasing this, just take a look at the video. After that, it should be easy to decide if you think it's worth the $25 or not.
