Hi all,

I use Spin Doctor in almost every one of my close-up shows (around 3 times a week).

This trick is PHENOMENAL. I love it.

The routine itself is great. Here's what the trick is described as:

Quote:
Author and creator John Bannon remixes a classic Ace trick. Four red-backed Aces, held face-down, are spun. After each revolution, a different Ace turns face-up.

Then the Ace of Spades vanishes - it turns blank - in your spectator's hand, and reappears among the other Aces.

Finally, each ace has a different back design and color - four different colored backs. Everything is clean and examinable!

Includes DVD instructions, all the necessary cards specially printed by the U.S. Playing Card Company, and a bonus PDF instructional booklet!


What the description says is exactly what the trick looks like. Bannon has developed a direct handling, that fits the description perfectly.

The trick will take some work, and does require a good amount of sleight of hand and (time) misdirection, but once you have the trick down, you have a REAL miracle.

Each phase fries the spectator. Doing twisting the aces by itself fries spectators. THEN, you make a random ace turn BLANK! No one sees that coming. Then, you make all the cards have different backs! 3 amazing climaxes! (Most spectators pass out after the first one, and if they don't, definitely the second one. I've never had someone stay conscious until the 3rd phase :lol: )

The only downside to this trick would be the gaff cards. I was disappointed in how easily the gaffs wore down. They felt plasticy, and although they looked good, they didn't feel good when performing.

But that's not a big deal, as I have 5 different aces with different back designs.

9/10 ONLY because of the poorly made gaffs. Though, I still love the trick and hate giving it that 9. It deserves a 10. Awkward...

Get it though, seriously. As I usually say - you won't regret it!
