It looks like the refills are good for 400 performances. I wonder how many times I can perform with the gimmick that comes with the DVD.

Reignofsound, what don't you like about this? I am just curious.


Just not that taking by it.
Putting in a card in a bit of cellophane for what reason?
More impressive if the card jumped back in the box not a bit of cellophane
I think most people will think there is a slit of some kind, just not for me this one.

Did no one else notice that when the card is folded on the Spectator's hand it is almost flat, but when it goes into the cellophane the angle of the fold seems to "widen". It looks good, but there is something off if the folds are not even.

I would be interested to know if instead of a playing card, a billet could be used.

It seems that the visible signature in the cellophane is always the same: "ML".
it is only when we see the unfolded card (or bill) that we see the spectator's signature!!! Smile

You guys might be on to something. It's possible this trick uses sleight-of-hand, gimmicks, and routining to accomplish the effect and not some magical incantation used to harness satan's almighty power.

I doubt it. Sleight of hand? My guess is the gimmick whatever it is does the work.

Your thinking of a paper clipped possibility with a MF?

I still think the gimmick is doing the work as is goes from in hand to in cellophane. That precludes a sw*tch me thinks.

I know exactly what is going on here, and if you own The Switch by Shin Lim, you probably do too. This most certainly IS going to require some sleights. Whatever gimmick he's come up with for getting the card into the cellophane is going to be awesome, I bet. Probably worth the price of the effect alone if it is what I'm thinking it is.

I had never thought I would say this, but if it works like the switch by Shin Lim , I would rather stick to that. It is a longer and more impossible routine than this second.

Joe, I wasn't implying that there wasn't sleight of hand or a trick going on, I am implying that the illusion of the cards is poor if the card looks different inside the cellophane than it did, a split second before, outside the cellophane.

then do the version with the signed coin instead- which wouldnt work with Shin's The Switch method....

That's very unusual.
Sounds like they must have gotten a very early, very limited run in stock.
Still would like to know if these orders already shipped were from Penguin?
Thanks!!!

How many times did you watch or pause the video looking for that? No spectator is ever going to notice that or be looking for fold indifferences. Especially when they do not even know what is going to happen. Stuff that magicians study, expect, and look for fly right by laymen so don't over-anaylyze too much.
The great trouble with magicians is the fact that they believe when they have bought a certain trick or piece of apparatus, and know the method or procedure, that they are full-fledged mystifiers. -- Harry Houdini

So has the magic Café become the new 'Learnmagictricks'-forum or what is all that fishing about?

If you like it, show respect to the creator and just buy it. If you are unsure, wait for reviews. No reason to point out imperfections or possible solutions.

In the video both act the heat is on the cellophane, while I believe it is on the card.
