Yeah I would go with that one, I remember Paul Cummins performing something extremely similar to that on Joshua Jay's Talk About Tricks.

Street Cents by Andrew Gerard ($18.48.)

That's where I got mine. Then I formatted and printed it into a booklet for myself.

Thank you Max and Lumas!!!

I am flattered that you placed Switchcraft in such esteemed company.

Those really are some of the best mentalism products you can get for under $20.

I can’t believe “202 Methods of Forcing” is only $2. That must be the best magic bargain ever!!

Thanks again,

Elliott

If you only have 20 bucks, then definetly get invisible deck and something else. you might even want jay sankeys Invisible dvd if you have trouble learning through the instructions that arnt too good lol. but i think you get an instand download instructional video.

Nope, they've been out of stock for a couple of years. Bad move for them.
