Triumph is my work best favorite BUT,
my most simple very enjoyable is most definitely
Oz Perlmans card to mouth since it's designed especially for the type of audiance that gawks at your hands like mad men.
These type of people will fall for that no matter what.

Some of my current favs are 1) the spellbinding boxes, 2) equal and unequal ropes, 3) Jay's formal affair, 4) Jay's $0 bill switch, 5) stealth pen, and 6) spongeballs, of course. :) oh, and 7) holy moly!

I think the best close up/card trick ever is 'In a Flash'. It's great. A combination of fire, coin, and card magic. Man i give this a 5/5. It's really sweat to see the flame of the fire light up and burn a hole in the cards. Jay Sankey really jazed this trick up. 8)

Thanx Jay! :lol:

whatz ur favotire close up trick :?: edit: it is now the raven


Sorry if I sound picky here, but "The Raven" is not a trick. It's a gimmick. Saying "The Raven" is like answering the question by saying "Flash Paper."

The Raven is a gimmick that can be used to accomplish many different effects. Hazerman15..what's your favorite trick that uses The Raven?

IMHO, The Raven is too much of a "one-trick pony" -- too much of an annoying reset for my tastes. I prefer impromptu magic that is pretty much instantly repeatable.

Right now, one of my favorite tricks is Greg Wilson's "A Questionable Trick." Also, Brother John Hamman's "The Twins." Dai Vernon's "The Trick That Cannot Be Explained" is another. "Double Reverse" from Royal Road to Card Magic...the classic "You Do as I Do"...Paul Harris's "Galaxy" and other handlings of "Out of This World"...Harry Lorayne's "The Best Gosh Darn Impromptu Linking Card Effect You'll Ever See"...lots more I could add.

A more important question, though, is what are your audience's favorite tricks? Which effects that you do get the best reactions? The main reason I'm turning this question in that direction is that, sometimes, our favorite tricks are our favorites because of a niftiness of method or a sense of self-satisfaction that comes from mastering a difficult and necessary sleight. Or maybe we just like the prop. However, these personal favorites may not be audience favorites.

For example, there's a mentalism effect called "Three Predictions" by Theo Anneman which is one of my personal favorite card tricks purely because of the handling and mind-blowing climax. However, I have not found it to be a very good audience-pleaser yet. It involves a bit too much dealing/counting for the spectators and venues I work.
