    Very good product. Very in depth, but you will need to pick up a few things for this product. If you don't want to put effort into a gimmick, this is not for you. But if you want to build something this is the best flap card ever!

    This is one awesome download. Three hours of instruction on making some of the most amazing gimmicks ever. Definitely a worthwhile investment.

    The construction requires skill, practice and patience... Just like anything magical should! If you're looking for something "easy" to make, this is not for you.

    You will need some craft supplies, some gaff cards and some Prym knit-in elastic... Same stuff you will need to make many other card gimmicks. I got most of the stuff I needed at Michael's but I had to order the knitting off of Amazon.

    The video is in Chinese, but the subtitles are excellent. In fact, being able to pause the video with the subtitles makes it easier to follow than a video in English without captioning... perhaps all instructional videos should have CC or subtitles???

    I highly recommend making all the gimmicks in the order presented in the videos. Hondo did a fantastic job making each succeeding gimmick increase in difficulty so that by the time you get to the really hard to make ones, your crafting skills have been honed to the task. Don't skip to the end! Start at the beginning, watch ALL the tutorials, then start over and make the gimmicks along with the video. You will be glad you did!

    My only wish is that Ellusionist sold a gimmick building kit that included the following: Elastic Knitting, Gaff Card Deck, New Card Deck, Glue stick, double stick tape, utility knife, red/blue fine tip pens and a small cutting mat.

    Hondo is truly a Wizard of the highest order. If you perform card magic, you want this video.

    Great product if done right but it is extremely hard to make. I'm getting better at it but after 15 cards I have one that works perfect. There always seems to be one issue that can ruin the flap either being off my half a mm or getting the holes to line up perfectly to hide them. Also have issues with threading getting stuck due to a minuscule misalignment. Master class yes! Difficulty extreme!
