Why don't we make this a top 3 of 2011? There were too many excellent products in 2011 to select a single product.

I receieved most of my new magic purchases at the end of the year so I haven't had time to routine and present to real audiences yet. However, I'll have to say that the following three are going likely going to be added to my set list:

UCCU - I've been wearing this utility device daily. This is going to be a permanent addition to my card routines. The idea of completely controlling a card while the specatator shuffles the deck is awesome.

Chop - There are so many routine possiblities with Chop. It is a brilliant gimmick. The routine on the free extras video is incredible. It is really practical - even the bill in lemon finale if you choose to use that as the final sequence.

Sugar Rush - I'm still trying to get a multi-phase routine out of this gimmick but even as a stand alone effect it is a fabulous moment of magic. It hits all of the check boxes. Easy? Yes. Visual? Yes. Resets quickly? Yes. Uses chocolate bars? Yes. Uses very little pocket space? Yes. Lots of possible routine sequences? Yes.
