So you are saying after the deck vanishes and you hand the reveal car to The Spectator there is nothing left in your hands?

Especially if you perform it as Christian typically does with removing the vanished cards from his pocket, then when you go to remove the remaining half of the deck..... well, you get the idea.

Now that sounds better. By going back in to get each half of cards to do the Dirty Work so I see why the ad copy is as such. If you just want to use it as a Vanishing deck to show the revealed card you will have to do the dirty work before being left clean. Gimmick looks good. Someone said it was unbreakable, is this true?

Consider these points:
You end clean. The last card can be fully examined.
It's easy to do. It will take just a short time to learn how to use the gimmick.
There are no angle restrictions. You can perform Level One surrounded.
The last card is completely examinable.
There are no flaps, threads or magnets. You receive a solid-state gimmick. It will never break.

Point 2 is BS then.

I don't understand the effect can you start with the deck & have the spectator pick a card & then the deck starts to vanish ? if so I am in ! All I see Is a deck vanishing whats the trick ?

I see this as something you have to do on the off beat when people think you have finished as in let me show you one more. You have to ditch the deck in your back pocket plus get ready for the effect you would find it very difficult to do this in front of people in my opinion.
It may be possible to load the g*****k as you steal the deck but you would need quite a bit of misdirection.

I’m with top hatter on this one
The effect itself is lovely, but it’s the starting of the trick getting to that stage concerns me

A full performance of this may sway me. But on the fence with this one

I also see it as an add-on to another card routine to make the latter even better (no rhyme intended), as a truly enhancing effect - if done out of nowhere. Can't wait to check out all the options possible with LEVEL ONE.

Seems to me that you can probably:
Have card selected.
Turn your back as they sign card.
At this point ring the gimmick in.

I don't have this and so can't be sure.

I believe that I am also like some others, on the fence with this trick, but I am going to hold out for some more reviews before making any decisions.

The instruction video does go over how to ring it in through a series of well thought out moves. It breaks down the moves clearly, and with a transparent plastic top card so you can see exactly what’s going on. It’s going to take practice to get it smooth. You’ll want to do it in an off beat, and the video says as much. But it seems you can ring it in while facing and talking to a spectator who’s not actively burning your hands.
Now appearing nightly in my basement.

I was wondering how difficult Level One is? Do you need to know slights to do it? Are they (the slights) hard to do?

Thanks
- Just my humble opinion

Speaking as a sub-amateur, I find the move, especially the first part, to be kind of knacky. I know it's my own lack of skill and experience, and I am slowly getting it, but it's not one of those gimmicks like a t**** t** that require mere seconds of practice to be able to do a passable effect. I look forward to getting this one down, and am glad I got it.

This looks great, and is right up my alley. I have so many vanishing/appearing/changing decks, and this looks like it may be better than all of them. Have to get this.
