So I guess there is a new chris on the block... He looks kind of angry haha


http://www.sansminds.com/index.php/sm-proshop/contrast.html

Contrast is a single card color change that you can do it to a SIGN and TORN card. The change is extremely visual and can be done openly right in front of the spectators. Once the magical moment happens the card can immediately hand out for examination. You spectator can also keep the impossible souvenir. Words cannot explain how impossible this effect is! Check out the trailer NOW!
Hand crafted gimmick included
Two handling: Full card color change and 3/4 card color change
Fully examinable

*TV rights NOT included with purchase. All TV rights reserved and available from SansMinds Magic only.

Do these pieces (from the trailer) look like they are from the same card?

Considering how good they normally are at editing their trailers, I was surprised to see this.

Holy cr@p. I am familiar with all if not most gimmick cards. I have no idea on this one. And you can hand the signed card out right away?! Looks too good to be true.

I haven't liked Sansminds latest releases much (Denail, Pierce and Digital Twin were all stinkers) but this looks wtf crazy. And it comes with a premade gimmick (gasp)!

Speaking of Sansminds, what happened to annoying boy spokesman? The new guy is so normal.

We don't have this yet, it is due later this week.

The effect is truly amazing to watch, I'm sure like many I hope it is good for table hoping for strolling.

When something looks tot good to be true, it is because it is too good to be true.

If people are expecting that you will get a card which looks just as good as a normal card which you can handle fair and cleanly, just as a normal card which you then can hand out without any switches or clean up, just as you see in the trailer. Well, then you are in for a massive disappointment because then you are expecting real magic.

Does the torn off corner really add anything to the effect for someone why has not seen a very visual color change before? To a laymen? I do not think so.

But hey, most magicians do not perform in the real world and are just collectors looking for real magic.

Well, you don't know all gimmick cards then Smile If you think a little bit,you can come up with a very easy way of achieving the effect, maybe not THE method used but a one which works.

Looks stunning, but with all Sans Minds releases, best to wait till the reviews come in...

I cannot believe no one is willing to take 'one for the team' with this product. It takes a very brave Wing Man to take a hit with a Sansminds release. Smile

Before anyone buys this, just ask yourself this, why don't they show what leads up to the color change and what takes place after handing it out. After all, it is a gimmick they are selling.

All we see is the change, then cuts, cuts and more cuts to someone cleanly handing out the card. Of course, this is not how it is going to play out in the real world. Anyone who has been into magic for more than a few years and stopped looking for real magic know that this is true.

Of course, the card will not look as good as it does in the trailer out in the real world either, as long as you have handled card gimmick of this type before, you know that this is true as well.

Just look at a prior Sandminds release, travel, which looked AMAZING in the trailer, and in reality it looked anywhere from CRAP to decent depending if you got a good gimmick or not.

I know that I do sound negative, bit I do hate seeing people getting fooled by the big magic companies. Most of us have a limited budget for new magic and it sucks getting new things that you play around with for 5 minutes and then put in in a drawer where it stays.
