Hi.

I like the look of this trick. Very impressive. My question is, since this deck is examinable and apparently very well made and can fool even magicians, can the deck be used for regular effects as well?

Is there any reason the deck can't be used as a regular deck of cards?

Thanks for any help on this.

I wouldn't go that far. It can be lightly perused, not EXAMINED.

To answer your question: No.

This is an excellent example of a bullet proof trick. The deck is handed out, the trick is angle proof, you have a (seemingly) TOTALLY free choice, and it happens directly. No funky sleight of hand or tricky byplay. They see a card, card vanishes, boom you have the card. Plus you can go in SOOO many directions with the trick. Comedy, mentalism, impossible locations.

Yeah, I'm unsure about buying this. I'm pretty sure of what the basic principle is and the deck really can't be used for many normal effects. Besides for slight variations in presentation, are there other effects explained with this than the standard effect. Frankly, just the demo doesn't seem like $70 worth of material to me. Just like Ultimate Coin Bend (it's not as bad), but if I'm not mistaken I got the entire Eric Jones Extension of Me set for around the same price.

If you hand the cards out to anyone with an IQ over 7, they'll figure it out.
If you DON'T hand the cards out, they'll label it as TV Magic cards, and dismiss the effect.

Too many other great tricks in this price range.

you know theirs a trick in beginners magic books that can do this same thing except you riffle the cards.

same effect u riffle, they say stop.

they see the card and than its gone from the deck.

You can make it yourself, its a lot more practical than this

Yeah seriously I don't get why all the magicians are literally having magicgasms from this thing. I totally agree with you Akira; I would much rather spend $80 on something like Coinvexed, or whatever.
