Redeemed himself with Nicholas though .

This does look amazing very amazing . For 15 dollars it comes with such a visual change . That's one thing they did right , throw out unnessasary packaging !

Just add it to cart , don't even think about it

I don't care if it's workable ( probably is though ) but I just want to know the workings ! And 15 dollars is a very reasonable investment .

I'm just very wary of advanced arts and crafts. I'm hoping someone will be able to back-brief us very soon. It's only the shipping costs stopping me ordering at this time.

We're aware of high international shipping rates (We're almost at a solution that will fix this forever), so we've priced this trick accordingly to take into account shipping costs that you'll have to pay if you're an international customer.

Absolutely no flaps.

We can't. At the moment are costs are high.... but we're working on bringing in flat pack rates and run free events on shipping throughout the year.

I hate to be "that guy," but I feel like I just wasted my money on this one. I'm usually a huge Nicholas Lawrence fan, but I do not like this one.


There are so many problems with this. The biggest problem is the audience can clearly see what is happening... Without saying too much, it is a very obvious flash. I tried to show to a few people and they immediately said, "I saw it ____" and they accurately said the method.

The second problem is with Lloyd's version. The angles are awful. They could very easily see two cards before the change takes place.

I'm very disappointed in this one. Don't waste your money!

I can only see one way of doing and I think it would be very problematic if that's the case. Maybe for stage or video only.

MadisonH- Chroma works great for LIVE performance.. 100% ive used this countless times with great success, with any Magic prop or sleight there requires practice to master the effect..never attempt a trick the day you learn it, I feel that if anything that process is wrong. I urge you to practice the method and get comfortable & confident with a solid routine and TRY again.. I don't Release Material or tools that arent workable in the real world, sometimes it just depends on how much time you have dedicated to your craft.

Thank you Maddy. More money saved. It's unusual for you to leave a bad review so this must be dreadful.

I have to say that the method is what I thought it was.. and I was also disappointed as I see a lot of problems with it.

Additionally, while I agree with what Nicholas said above in general, Maddy is one of the more respected members of this forum and he picks up stuff very quickly (just take a look at his Blomberg Laboratories videos he flooded out right after learning it in the book). I trust his judgement, whether he performed it same day or a week from now.

I don't have this, but since it was literally just released it seems improbable that anyone could have practiced this enough to make it look good in one day. One of the constant on threads I've noticed over the last few years I've been here is that an awful lot of people want self working, perfect angles and examinable. Very unrealistic, magic takes practice. If you want novelty gags then that's a different thing. Magic takes practice.

Again, I haven't bought this. It could be crap but a few hours of fiddling doesn't seem like a basis for reviewing.
