Best wishes for the future Dave.....it would have been nice if Alakazam had at least metioned Dave leaving after all the years he worked for them. No offence but Dave brought far more to Alakazam than Andy and Harry and always asked the right questions when hosting lectures compared to the others.

Obviously I will still support the shop as they still do a great job and deserve our support.

Well said! Not even a mention or a thank you publicly from Mr Nardi

There is a story to it. Whether the story will ever be told, well that's for David or Alakazam to decide.

Sometimes things are best left in the past.

I've no idea what has gone on behind the scenes and I've never met Dave Loosely but I first met and have been buying effects from Peter Nardi since the 1990s and he's consistently been one of the most helpful and trustworthy magic sellers I've done business with.

I wish both of them luck going forward.

Does anyone perform Alakazam's Features by John Anders and would not mind giving some thoughts on it?

I hate hearing Dave has left because Peter and Dave were a good team. They came up with some very good magic. I was always wondering why Dave was never spoken about on anything.
When I didn't see him on the Christmas Special I knew something was up. Alakazam is still my favorite dealer to deal with. Very good service.

Peter did briefly mention it on one of the Tuesday live Facebook chats Alakazam do. He acknowledged that Dave no longer worked for Alakazam, and wished him well for the future. Definitely a loss for Alakazam.

And yet again! A slight variation on Triple Impact, I’ll stick with the original

Alakazam hasn't produce a new effects in a long while. Everything is the same concept with different props. I've moved on to other distributors others should do the same.

Yes! I loved his copper silver trick and his easy going affable nature. Most of the online shops offer great fast service.
They need exclusive products to set them apart.

Why should others do the same?

Just because they don’t please you why do you think it’s justified to encourage customers to go elsewhere. Ridiculous statement!

This place is full of trolls at the moment.

Probably have issues due to covid in manufacturing items presently. While one concept of a trick may not suit an individual, another does, it's called choice. I believe supporting industries in our own countries is vital presently, that also includes countries that share similar values. In case you missed it, Britain has been hit hard.
Alakazam has been solid over the years, I'll continue to view their site and purchase items that appeal to my style as I know they produce quality.
Companies have to make hard decisions to survive due to this pandemic, I'm sure Dave was one of those very hard decisions. But now you have another choice, as Dave has his website and products, double win for consumers. I wish both the best and will continue to support both into the future.

Very well said.

I received a sort of self-congratulatory email from Alakazam (they won some kind of dealer award), no mention of Dave's contribution.
