Okay so those of you familiar with Cris Brown's Venus Trap and Aaron Fisher's Bluff Replacement Subtlety might get a kick out of this.

I liked the idea of the Venus trap but felt it was unnecessary to replace a DL. If you really need to hand a card out to prove it isn't a double card then the trusty old top change does the trick without as many angle issues. However I did like the card controls he uses with the effect. My only problem with these was that both methods he teaches have a distinct XCM look to the control. Nothing wrong with xcm but it isn't appropriate for all tricks. So I was messing around with it and realized that you could use the bluff replacement subtlety to execute the move from a more natural position. It still has the angle issues but fortunately both moves share the same bad angle so proper framing compensates for both. Have fun with it!

Very similar to the WOW control by Oliver Macia

It is, but the Fisher subtlety is a nice addition.

I guess it is. I had never seen the WOW control until you mentioned it. That one IMO looks cleaner than the original Venus trap. They both look like they are using the same principle.

I like it now that I get it. I think it's funny how you say its too flourishy as you do some re diculous sybil.

:lol: A touch of irony for those who caught on. But flourish or no flourish the Fisher subtlety decreases the angle sensitivity of the move as well.
