Not very practical because of the angle sensitivity. More or less just for the sake of learning a new move. Looks cool on camera though.
I really enjoy this. It is easy and fun to do. Sometimes I'll just be sitting with a deck of cards and find myself doing this. Thank you very much Mike Hankins and Ellusionist for making this available!!
Powerful,beautiful and easy to do!
great sleight amazing color change
I don't know if I would consider this a trick as much as a flourish. I use it more as a conversation starter then anything. I have medium size hands and still had a little trouble with it at first but it works itself out in a few hours. The move is a bit noisy if not done correctly. The effect is cool but I feel it has limited applications.
I didn't believe the other reviews but this really doesn't work well if you don't have big hands. They will be able to see the sleight of hands if your hands aren't as big as Mike's. You can also hear the sleight of hands when it's being performed. There's also footage on the DVD that's just a waste of time...Mike's counting down 48 second...no clue why...he could have given instructions on other techniques instead of watching his I-Phone count down 48 seconds. Save your money...don't buy...better tricks to perform on this site.
The move is easy and has good applications. Bought it yesterday, today it's ready for full usage.
I really like the fluidness of the movement. and how it turns something that everyone of us does (well... most of us do one in a while) and turns it into a good color change or card control (works best as a color change, though).
It is a good pick for the price. I recommend it.
Okay here is the scoop. Great variation and alot of thought into it.
Pros: Looks amazing, Stunning reactions, Limits are litterally limitless,
Cons: angles, Not for small hands, Would help if you had some previous experience with cards,
Overall is a great idea and will help up your magic to the next leavel. I have been Intermedeate magician for not too long and this has helped my proformance.Definatly worth the buy if you do not know how to do this. Highly recommended in my opinion. every magician should learn this
a wonderful move i learned something a little different than this that I call the Geni Change both of which are smooth and beautiful card changes
Basically I bought this move in order to add some flourish to my card handling. I've been working at card magic for about 3-4 months now and wanted to learn something to add some visual things to my handling.
For a beginner I found the handling difficult to begin with. But after a few watch backs and a weekend of casual practice I had it nailed.
On the negative side - its not angle proof. Anything other then straight on and the spectator can see 'something' is happening.
On the plus - this move adds some great visuals to accent some tricks. I now use it as an alternative colour change to the one in Brad Christian's aces reveal in Ninja.
For the money its a great buy. It takes a while to learn, but for me in my beginner status, just learning the mechanics of the move has upped my card handling skill. The bonus material on other appications of the move is worth the price alone.
