My order is in direct with Kozmo! Ordered 10 days ago so lets hope international post gets here soon!!

For anyone who thinks there is a discrepancy let me tell you this:

When I first saw the routine performed for the Wizard product review in Blackpool I was blown away! I thought it looked impossible. Garrett's timing was perfect and he kept everything moving along at just the right pace. I was fooled! From seeing demos and adverts for this routine cropping up I then realized what the discrepancy is and I slapped myself. I can't wait for this to arrive, I know what I am getting but I am looking forward to learning the whole routine. Presented right this is a brilliant effect and the moves are simple and well motivated.

Come on Mr Post-man!!

A great lecture from Garret at the L.A.D.s convention in Birmingham (UK) yesterday. He went through the routine & moves in some detail. I purchased it along with a lot of other people! Looks very good. Basically 2 simple moves. The hard bit however, is to build and sequence the 2 moves into a full routine. Superb as an opener in my opinion as it can involve as few or as many people you wish.
We are inclined to believe those whom we do not know because they have not yet deceived us...

Did anyone else order this from world magic shop and get a free copy of the Lady Traveller. Mine did not include the gimmick needed, is this why they gave them away, id rather they just put them in the bin than send me their rubbish

My free copy of the Lady Travels came with the gimmicked cards in a small envelope inside the DVD cover. It must have been an error.

Can anyone tell me a way to keep the monte cards slick and clean? I am finding that color seems to come off on to other cards and it makes it more difficult to work with them. Thank you.

I'm a mentalist and rarely I see s close up effect that I feel an urge to write something about. This monte is the best version out there right now. for 30 years it was Skinner's and now it's Thomas's. This guy really understands magic, and I can't wait for him to turn to mentalism.. Smile

Buy this buy this but this!!!
I m not into card tricks really (i don't like carrying a deck around with me) but this is awesome!!
Technically its not difficult to do, but the memorising the routine and order takes some time. But I have done it for friends and they go wild. I m sure Magicians will suspect/know whats going on but laymen really don't!!!!

Man, maybe it's just me, but I am not a really big fan of Stand Up Monte. The same discrepant move over and over and over and over again only to be broken up by another discrepant move. Yeah, I'm a magician, but to have that same exact move repeated over and over again is just asking for trouble. To me anyways, I think there are better 3CM routines. I like the original Color Monte and Sheets take on the Killer Kitson Miracle.

IMHO, your mileage will certainly vary...

Interesting - cool to have another view.
I have this and IMO it flies by spectators.
A brilliant routine IMO Smile

I really like this, but $30 seems kind of pricey for a monte...I'm guessing you are really paying for the 90 minute DVD, am I right?

It's we well done DVD. Definitely a different style of Monte than Skinners. By design it's performed much quicker whereas Skinners (as done by Bill Malone, Michael Ammar and others) is intentionally done really slowly. Skinner's effect doesn't involve going into your pocket either. But Garret's version is a bit more in their hands and appears to have more audience interaction.

BTW - If anyone hasn't seen Bill Malone's performance of this, it's very humorous and worth watching!

It was definitely easier for me to learn this from the DVD. You can get the printed version and probably figure it out. This does not have the six card finale however which I think is really powerful.

Throw the cards fast like they do on the street and it will make your audience go crazy.
