I don't see any other effect, either. Is there supposed to be one?

Apparently a devious little routine that will go right into your mentalism act. No disrespect to Spidey but I already have several drawing dupes that are superior to the one demonstrated to show the p**k.

It is a shame this thread has such an off putting title. I've just watched Sneak Peek and tried it out. It is very deceptive and with a handling I have not seen before. For a sneaky peek, this has to be one of the best and one I'll definitely be using. All you need is a pen and business card and you're all set for a miracle - what more could you want!


Indeed -the title choice is poor taste....it could have been - does anyone have info on this peek X? And in first post... How does it compare to AN?

I prefer it to AN for two reasons. The folding is more straightforward and the actual peek is incredibly deceptive.

Neil,

I have a way of doing AN with business cards that needs no special folding at all. It also adds a nice touch to your cards. PM me if you like mate.

I recently picked this up, mostly out of curiosity. I also think Spidey's a nice guy and handled this situation (and a similar past situation) with respect and class.

Back to Sneak Peek - based on the performance video and comments made on this thread, I had a feeling I knew what this was going in and I was partially right. Instead of a AN variation, I view it as more of a combination of methods. I won't mention which methods, in particular, as I wouldn't want to reveal too much.

The production quality is topnotch and Bedros does an excellent job of teaching the effect in addition to providing some subtleties.

Would I recommend this? That's hard to say. If you're not very familiar with billet work, Switchcraft would be a better investment. However, if you haven't quite found a peek you're comfortable with, Sneak Peek might be worth a look.

Up next: The good doctor's Billet tear.

I performed Sneak Peek on my wife over lunch. Being the suspicious sort she watched me like a hawk and at the end concluded, 'I've no idea how you got that!'

It is rare for her to say that sort of thing.

Sean has also shared with me his idea for using his business card which again needs no special folding. This makes the whole process so much easier and also, as it is not pre-folded, less suspect. Thanks Sean - it is very neat, in more ways than one Smile

I think Spidey is a name to watch - I have also downloaded his Celebrity Match and Psycho and both are very practical, strong effects.

I bought this. And I have to say it's a neat p**k. I can't say I'm going to use the method (I might if the situation calls for it) but Spidey explains it well and is obviously very good at this move. He performs it flawlessly. I'm a big fan of BS's and p**ks. I'm amassing a little collection at the moment and I'm glad I bought it as it's inspired me to come up with a sneaky move of my own. Rock on, Spiderman! :-D

Sean's idea he mentioned above is a nice touch, that has more than one benefit to the pro performer.

Thanks for sharing mate. You can go back in the shed anytime.

Wanted to publicly thank Sean for sharing his AN handling with me. Truly a gentleman and a scholar! Smile

Had quite a few people asking for my AN handling, which is fine if you're genuinely following the path.

Just note that I'm not sharing the method, and my addition will only make sense to owners of AN.

Best,
Sean

By the way, there is a second effect on the video called "Conexion", which is pretty good.


If tony says, I listen,

so I plunged.

well the effect isn't there anymore. could spidey get back to us ( or to me at least) on that.

seeing the gentleman he has been on dealing with millard, I can only imagine that he will deal with this approproately also Smile

Thanks

Yes I'd like to know about the other effect as it was mentioned in the trailer and was part of the reason I purchased this.

I recently purchased this and discovered that Connexion was no longer included in the video.

I contacted Spidey about it and to my understanding when Theory 11 reproduced the video they left out the second effect because it was unrelated to Sneak Thief.

Hopefully Theory 11 will re-release Connexion as a stand alone effect in the near future.

You know what? I'm actually going to send Theory 11 a request to do this.

Spidey is a great guy and I've enjoyed everything I've seen from him and I'm going to let them know I want to see more.

No hype, just the truth.

Hey guys!

sorry it took me so long to jump in here. I rarely check the Café... I need to change that habit, particularly when I re-release a confusing download lol

first of all, thank you to all of you who enjoyed my peek, or those who didn't see themselves using it but expressed this in a gracious way. Awesome! Smile

NOW let's talk about CONNEXION!

For those of you who are confused by this "second effect" here is the story. Sneak peek was originally a download on the Wire including my billet peek and a routine with blank cards which uses another original peek within a very cool little mentalism effect which I use A LOOOOTTTT in close up situations.

The incredible success of the download made T11 want to refilm it with their guys and make it a T11 product, not a WIRE product. BUT since the fuss was MOSTLY about the peek (as beginners,which are a large part of their customer base WOULD find interessting) CONNEXION got lost somewhere in the shuffle, pun intended!

ALSO Connexion uses double blank cards which we know where to find but a lot of beginners don't. Therefore; connexion was not refilmed!

If anyone on here HAS sneak peek but the new, theory11 version, CONNEXION-less. Please please please PM me and I will send you connexion. Because most of you guys on here are working pros and the working pro WILL enjoy connexion (i hope)

So if that is the case, please PM me.

Atticus: I still encourage you to write to theory11 saying how much you enjoyed connexion Smile

Thanks guys!
