Hypnotic Pull by Patrick G Redford
DRAG THE LIGHT/HEAVY BOX FROM STAGE TO STREET
Hypnotic pull is an examinable, multi-phase light/heavy box, using a deck of cards.
It's the perfect opener, because the magic begins before the cards even come out of the box.
The spectator is shown a normal deck and asked to pick-it-up. Easy right? Wrong.
Like a modern day hammer of Thor, only the righteous can pick this up.
Try as they might, the box won't budge.
This stolen strength can then be deposited back into their body at will, with a snap, touch or spoken word.
But that's not all, for phases 2 and 3, the challenge gets easier, but the results stay the same.
They are asked to just take the cards out of the box.
The harder they pull, the harder the deck sticks inside the box. Even after you remove half the deck, they still can't pull the remaining cards out.
Hypnotic Pull comes complete with the special gimmicks, a 48 page pocket size book of instructions, as well as access to a video performance and tutorial.
Taking up almost zero pocket space, this ingenious gimmick can be added to ANY deck of cards and is 100% heckler-proof.
Finally retire the line 'pick a card'.

In addition, Patrick teaches a routine called “Stop Smoking” that simulates the same effect with a pack of cigarettes. Making it impossible for a participant to remove his or her cigarettes from the box.

The effect is great overall - if you are excellent at crowd management. Patrick offers a killer routine that hits hard if executed properly. The price is a bit steep for what you get though.
Great trick, the only thing is he does not teach the best on the first phase of how to set it up.
