I use JM's Decent. It's fantastic. I use the Menotti gaff for Francis's Back In Time routine and vanish the gimmick from their hands.

2 different tricks. I'm glad I can do both, depending on what I'm going for.

Zombie,

I like your idea of using this gimmick for JM"s Back in Time routine. However, I personally do not like this gimmick for the Smack routine and I personally do not care for the handling. It just seems a round about way of achieving the same result in other more direct ways.

Hope all is well.

Best wishes,

Michael

Hi magicinsight!

The Back In Time routine I use is from the SMACK dvd. Their signed card is torn into pieces and placed on the open hand of another raudience member. I vanish them and the signed card is back on top of the deck, which they are holding.

As always, everyone should use what works best for them.

Zombie,

Thank you for the clarification. I have Smack but I did not finsih watching the entire DVD as I was not too keen on the main effect. I will watch BAck in TIme.

Best wishes,

Michael

Francis put quite a bit on the DVD, routines, tips, moves, etc.

The TNR plot is a gerat one. J.C. Wagner had his where 3/4 was resorted. Tommy Wonder made the left over corner into a joke. David Williamson took the plot is a gerat direction ( David Blaine did it for Tyra Banks on one of his early sepcials ).

I think you should know a few and use the one for the situation you're in.

LokI Kross's "Mythos" from the "A Taste Of Chaos" DVD is perfect in situations where I'm not going for a visual "trick" but want them to connect with feeling deep inside themselves ( massive endorphin release for them ). They won't ask to "see something else" because you just took them on a journey and they are quite happy to be in the state they are;-)

Justin Miller's Decent from "The Bold Project" is an in your face reoration that will make them scream. Make sure you either are about to leave the scene or want to do more beacause the reactions will get attention. Of course, that's the time to stop;-)

SMACK's "Back In TIme" routine takes it more towards the surreal....and I vanish the gimmick from their hand ( was that too good to tip? ;-)

TThose are the 3 I use and it depends on the group vibe as to which one I present.

Would you say that smack was suitable for everyone, or just hardened users?


If you can perform a one handed palm a shuttle pass and finger palm whilst being seriously burned then this is for you.
If not then maybe give it a wide berth.

I ordered "Smack" and it arrived today. Personally, I think it's pretty cool!

I'm gonna work with it. Not afraid of the sleights involved. I smell fun!
