How hard is this stuff?
This is an intermediate product. Have some experience with cards under your belt before you own this. But fortunately the training is delivered in such a way that learning becomes easier. Three angles are included in each scene and you can choose which angle works best for you. Production quality is superb.
Is it taught like Dan and Dave's The System?
No, it is not taught exactly like the System. There IS talking, and the DVD contains multiple angles to choose from when watching... the teaching is slow, deliberate and easy to follow. There is exceptional clarity. People have said the teaching is highly effective.
You'll find everything from a simple one-hand shuffle to an eight packet flourish display along with never before seen tricks so visual you won't believe it's all done with a normal deck. Plus you'll discover over 100 unique sleights that can be adapted and finessed to your own repertoire.

Powerful walk-around magic that can be done anywhere at anytime, surrounded, and with a normal deck of cards.
A selected card is left protruding from half the deck in your left hand while the other half remains in your right hand. Instantly and without the packets ever touching their card vanishes and reappears protruding face-up in the right hand packet. The card can be signed!
Fission for Aces
An eight is turned face up on top of the deck. In a splitting action, the eight is ripped into two fours of matching color. One of the fours is handed out, as the remaining four is this time split at the fingertips into two two’s. Lastly, as you can imagine, a two is split into two aces. This quick trick is extremely visual – everything is done at the fingertips.
We've taken this classic and usually boring effect and given it STYLE. Two cards are selected and lost in the deck. As the four aces are magically produced, the selections mysteriously appear between them. This is as visual as it gets.
Here’s a remix of the classic 'Back in Time' effect by Steve Freeman. If you know the Freeman trick, just imagine it with a face-up card and you’ve imagined this trick, seriously. In this effect you'll learn the 'db Spin Change', the most visual change we've created and the EASIEST change you'll ever do!
The coolest packet trick you’ll ever perform. The 4 sixes are shown with the added Buck flair. The performer jokes about how if he turns the six around it changes to a nine (pointing to an upside down six from the spectators POV). The next time the performer turns them around, they really do change to 4 nines and the cards can be handed out for examination.
Hand to Mouth
The spectator is instructed to push their protruding card flush with the deck... By this time the card is already in your mouth.
The misdirection is so perfect that you will find yourself performing this surrounded without anyone having a clue. Our finesse and style differentiates this effect from previous handlings.
Any card is selected and sandwiched between the two red aces; these cards are clearly placed on the table. Another card is selected, however, the performer miscalls it as the first selection. This second selection is face up on top of the deck. With a snap, the card visually transforms into the first selection sandwiched between the red aces. The cards on the table are spread to reveal the second selection sandwiched between the black aces.
This is a beautiful transposition effect with a clever plot about déjà vu that will leave you spectators wondering more about what they really just witnessed, or if it happened at all.
Here's an instant two-card transposition effect. It can be done anytime and surrounded.
One selection is placed face-down into deck center while the other remains face-up on top. Visually and with no sneaky moves the two cards transpose. You end clean!
Here’s another take on the visual two-card transposition. Imagine openly placing a selected card out-jogged in the center of the deck, turning the top card face-up and without ever covering either card, they instantly transpose. In addition, you’ll learn an awesome new double lift from the center. This trick rocks on all levels!
If you ever need a quick trick to send that "wise guy" back to where he belongs, this is it! It leaves them completely stumped after thinking they had you all along. It’s another quick transposition effect but opens several other possibilities with a new move called 'The V Switch'.
Twinsplit Remix The three of clubs is shown at the fingertips in the left hand. You explain how the pips on the card are removable and you pinch the center pip of the three with the fingertips of the right hand. In a quick action, you visually pull off the center pip of the three leaving the ace of clubs in your right hand the two of clubs in your left hand. These cards can be cleanly shown front and back. You can then go on to replace the pip by tossing the ace into the two in which it visually transforms back into the three.
This trick is so visual. The cards are always at the fingertips and face up. No duplicate cards or gimmicks required.
Here's a completely modernized version of Earl Nelson's 'Submarine Sandwich'.
We've given the effect a few of our signature touches and added teleportation to the plot to make what was a good trick a GREAT routine.
