The one my fans love is the vanishing lit cigarette. People request to see it over and over and over and over etc. (no lie) I also like the invisible deck, hummer card, triumph, ash on arm, fraud and rope tricks from Fiber Optics.

My best reaction comes from Jay Sankey's "In A Flash." It's been out of Penguin stock for quite some time, but readily available on a well-known auction site. Fire, where permitted, always gets a good reaction. And the audience really thinks they can see the quarter melting through the deck to the chosen card.

In A Flash is repeatable. You don't throw a deck away every time you do it. It is one of my favorites as well, and I recommend it highly.

I'd like to tell you something, though: more important than the trick itself is who is performing it. How many times have you seen Lance Burton's candle and dove act fall flat in the hands of an amateur? If you've never had this experience, suffice it to say that it happens rather often.
The point is that if you work with the same effect for weeks and months and years, you will have created the best effect in your collection, and that's not simply a cliché that I've repeated without purpose. Ask any working performer what his best effect is, and he'll tell you that it's the one on which he's worked the hardest.
Many novice magicians are put-off by their new trick because they've done it a few times and failed to get the reaction that they were after. But a strong reaction comes from a strong performance. Let me give you another example:
If a person were to give you a plot synopsis of a book or movie such as The Lord of the Rings, you might well be interested, but you'd hardly become emotionally attached. When reading the book or watching the film, there are tools in place to create that emotional attachment, and you may well end up with tears in your eyes by the end of the journey. The key is in the presentation.
Consider this when performing any trick. Its strength is entirely dependent on the character performing it, and the words, actions, and body language with which that character presents it.

Good catch, Coendog. I didn't realize that "In A Flash" had been reissued with a DVD. At the time, $20 was the most I had ever paid for a card trick, and it was some of the best magic money I spent. I'm surprised that they didn't raise the price with the DVD. It's a bargain.

Cinch by Shaun Robinson is a great one http://www.penguinmagic.com/p/2572

Also, Symphony by Daniel Garcia is a good dvd http://www.penguinmagic.com/p/1979

Tool by David Stone is another great one http://www.penguinmagic.com/p/2503

All of them are worth checking out, just don't waste your time and money with Linking Cigarettes like I did
