Gazzo's is good. So is John Archer's from "Educating Archer."

You'll kick yourself once you see it. No gimmicks, no hidden moves, just switching the deck right under their noses. Do they "see" it? Probably. Do they notice? NO.

what i meant was a good way to switch a deck when a spectator asks to examine it, or when i need to switch to my set up deck after doing some impromptus. but thanks for the suggestions. i will be sure to check those out.

If you have any clue that they might ask, the best time to switch is *before* they ask to examine it. Work it into your routine so you can start or end clean.

Depending on the extent of the setup, you can just learn to cull. Harry Lorayne [says he] oftens puts together setups right in the open in front of the spectator while "toying with the deck."

Also, one of the most useful deck switching devices is a clever item known as a "pocket." :wink:

That is what my husband does for a deck switch Caffeinator. He'll just absentmindly put the deck into his pocket while he is talking and then pull it back out again when it is time to go on with the trick. Hasn't failed him yet and if you put it into a jacket pocket, you can't tell there is more than one deck in the pocket. Just remember the order in which you put the deck into the pocket. The one he "uses" is always the one closest to his body.

Can't say for sure, as they usually come as bonus items when I buy a jacket.
