    Before buying it I read a review saying this and The Seer were the must have for any magician. This guy was totally right.
    This device is fantastic: it's simple and clever. The video itself is very good, Daniel Madison explain everything in a way you just can't not understand.
    I recommend buying this for any magician: beginner, intermediate, advanced... It leads to a whole world of magic tricks with one simple and practical device.

    This is a MUST for any card magician. I NEVER leave my house without The Advocate. Not only because of the effect shown in the trailer, but because your imagination is the limit. I really think that this and The Seer should be in every card magician's arsenal.

    This is a mind blower! I put it right into my routine. I pair the advocate with Daniel Madisons AX3 (I highly recommend) and cause a spectators freely thought of card to appear inside the very same envelope they just wrote on during the last effect.(AX3) It leaves them broken as the envelope was not only always in sight but in possession of them the whole time with a freely thought of playing card inside. Other than performing with AX3 the possibilities are almost endless. The advocate can allow to produce a card from almost anywhere and is very easy to combine with other effects in your routine that create miracles. This is a must own for any serious magician. This is one of the best. Thank you sincerely Daniel

    This is one of the most powerful tools in all of card magic. This tool allows you to move any named playing card to your fingertips. If you are a beginner in sleight of hand you might not be so inclined to get this since it does take a little bit of performance experience. Any intermediate sleight of hand artist should be able to pick this up fairly quickly. The price on this product should be upped by $100. It is that good.

    This is hands down my favorite purchase from Ellusionist. What you get is one of the most valuable devices you could possibly get your hands on, as well as thorough instruction on how to use it. I was using the Advocate the day after I bought it; it's that simple. With good audience management and misdirection, the possibilities are endless with this beautifully simple tool. Thank you Daniel.

    The information provided in this video is very well presented. Daniel has a very good way of breaking things down and explaining them simply. When watching this I instantly had questions pop into my head, that Daniel promptly answered. Overall the video left me feeling well prepared to perform this immediately. The reactions to this trick are some of the strongest I receive. The BEST part is the application is limited to only your imagination. You can use this one trick to string together a series of amazing illusions. If you do not have this video in your collection I STRONGLY encourage you purchase it immediately. You will not regret it.

    This is an absolutely great thing. The Advocate is taught very well, and because of how it works, it's super easy to use it in your own routines, or create your own tricks with it. Definitely worth getting, no matter who you are.

    The idea behind this is really good and "invisible". You can do alot of stuff with it, for example the "invisible deck" without any doubt. You can hand the deck out before and after the trick.

    For the price, this is quite possibly the best purchase I have ever made. I still can't believe how easy it is to do, of course with a bit of practice, and how many things can be accomplished. I have to say, now I have the advocate, the price should almost certainly be raised.
