OSYN by Mark Calabrese
ANY CARD. NO FORCE.
OSYN: Only Switch You’ll Need.
Mark Calabrese has finally released his most guarded secret to date… OSYN is a system which allows you to switch out any playing card, money or object roughly that size, with the spectator burning your hands with their eyes the entire time.
Inspired by Jay Sankey’s “Paperclipped” Mark has refined and developed this groundbreaking method in to what it is today. With over an hour of teaching, Calabrese gives you the real work on OSYN, and tells you why OSYN is an upgrade to 'Paperclipped'.
"Super clean. I will definitely find a place for this in my show"
- Bill Malone
"... this will be replacing any other switch I use for billet work."
- Peter Turner
OSYN comes with everything you need and 5 well-prepared routines, including...
Imagination Card: The spectator inspects a blank card, the magician then folds it and attaches a paperclip for safety, leaving it in their hand. The spectator is invited to name any card at all. They open their hand, the card has Changed into their Freely named card. Everything can be examined.
Signed Card: This miracle can be done at a moments notice with a signed card from the spectator. Mark teaches his handling on one of his most performed effects.
Any Word (Business Card Transformation): A clever way of giving your business cards to clients and a devious way of using an open prediction. They will believe you can read minds. This routine will be sure to stick with your audience forever.
Signed Bill: Mark teaches one of his sneakiest routines when a signed bill appears in the spectator’s wallet
"...So good "
- Doug McKenzie
+ You will also receive one of Daniel Madison's most coveted effects with this (No Cost), since the two routines are connected.

"There's no move to catch and nothing to see before or after. Simple, and devious."

SummaryMark this is amazing bro... great product, great instructions!
SummaryTHIS IS GENIUS!!!!!! Love the routines that come with this effect and will use it during gigs!!!!
SummaryHere is the deal.....I use this, I will continue to use this. Maybe it's possible but I can't even imagine how anyone could make further improvements to this move. To be able to remove the paperclip and drop it on the table then unfold the card, bill or billet and hand it to the spectator the whole thing just seems so incredibly fair. Mark provides 4 great routines with this, 2 of which are "mind blown" effects in my opinion, Imagination Card and Signed Card but it can be used for so many other things the provide routines are just the begining of how I will use this. Impossible predictions, dollar bill serial # divination etcl To me, 40 bucks is a great value for something that is so versitile and perfected. Thank you!
SummaryThe gimmick you receive is really not a gimmick. It's just stuff any magician already has at home. The idea and concept of the trick is pretty good. This could have easily been a $10 download.
SummaryI was a little thrown off when hearing how this is done and wish there was a cleaner way but after a lot of practice you will look amazing doing this and I would highly recommend.
HOWEVER: This effect is extremely difficult to learn master and correct angles so you will need to practice ALOT!
SummaryI received OSYN as a Christmas Present and was skeptical before it even arrived. Upon opening it and after watching the video, I was disappointed that at least half of the gimmick did not come premade if not all of it, and at $39.99 it would have been nice. That being said, what you are paying for is a utility method and not a gimmick. You get something that you can adapt to suit your performances and The Advocate is a great addition that definitely helps justify the cost. However, if you had already purchased the Advocate, this price is a little steep and if I did receive OSYN as a gift I don't think I would have purchased it. Overall great product and really useful. All in all 4/5 stars.
SummaryLet's be clear here: this is an effect, NOT a shippable gimmick. Sure, you get sent something in the mail but calling that a gimmick borders on making fun of the customers. The effect is all in the idea and teaching. It's a good effect. I like it. The video demonstration is good. But everyone who would be interested in this product already owns everything needed to make this gimmick. And yes, you still have to MAKE the gimmick anyway. It's like selling a "card to orange" tutorial and shipping a regular orange as the "shippable gimmick". Doesn't mean it's not a great trick and a great tutorial, but you can't be charging $40 with the justification that you are shipping a gimmick. I feel taken advantage of, which is not how I wanted to feel about ellusionist. It's great that you get a Daniel Madison trick along with it, but that's not what I was interested in. This is really questionable marketing. Too bad, because this leaves a really sour taste in my mouth about a very good idea and a very good trick!
SummaryGenius. I will admit that I was a little skeptical about purchasing this at first. But after watching the video, I absolutely love it! Mark Calabrese is a genius and I can't wait to start using this switch. If you're considering purchasing this product, DO IT!
SummaryI, too, was a bit disappointed at the outset when it describes what we'll be sent in the mail. However, I do like the handling and I think the last use of this shown on the video is a very effective and smooth "you could have said anything" prediction. I like it better than the "name any card and that appears in the spectator's hand" use. Now the latter is clearly strong, but it requires more stuff. I think what is shown at the end of the video is good enough and easy enough for anyone to do.
SummaryThis product is awesome. I was expecting much more with the gimmick and when I first watched the download I was a bit disappointed. However. When I explored a bit with OSYN'S download link provided, there is an extra secret when you purchase the product, which I'm not gonna mention, that I think everyone is going to LOVE, and makes OSYN well worth its price. Finally, Mark's explanation is clear and on point. These reasons are all it takes for me to give it a 5 star review.
