"Oh man, that is so clever, it fooled me badly the first time I saw it, and even the second time watching it, I wasn't sure! Finally a completely different and diabolic approach - I wish I would have had John's idea!" - Jan Forster

"Bank Wave checks off all my boxes for a great routine. It’s simple In concept, direct in plot and completely interactive. Congratulations are in order!" - Michael Kaminskas

John Carey is known for his unique twists on classic card plots, so when he came to us with the promise of unique close up mentalism our ears pricked up in anticipation!

BankWave did not disappoint.

In the classic bank night effect, the magician is left with the one envelope out of four that the audience members did not choose. It contains a little folded up bill or a message proving that you knew which envelope they'd leave behind.

John's BankWave is different and even more impossible.

In BankWave, you have EIGHT envelopes. Your spectator freely chooses four for themselves and four for you.

All four of their envelopes are empty, and the four they selected for you to keep each contain a bill - proving your incredible skills of psychological influence!

What's even more amazing (for us magicians, anyway...) is that there are no loads or secret switching moves, everything is examinable before and after the effect and the spectator mixes EVERYTHING.

While John performs this close up, your imagination is your only limit; you could perform this on stage with large coloured envelopes, or envelopes with words or pictures upon them.

This is the perfect starting point to create your own signature routine; regardless of how comedic or serious a performer you are. We like the original routine though; clean cut, slick and ultra-powerful.

Download BankWave today, and use it to close your table sets... Nothing hits them harder!

Great routine, poor video venue! Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on March 13th, 2019
Firstly, this is a great rethinking of an older idea, reframed entirely. I will use this, a lot. Perfect little gambling piece, you can present it as influence, chance, a prediction. Seriously, It's 8 normal envelopes and whatever you want to put in them - go wild. You could even use business cards.

BUT - who thought presenting the video, using BLACK ENVELOPES on a BLACK TABLE, in a BLACK BOOTH was a great idea?!?! WOW. They deserve a spanking and the video deserves a reshoot.

In short, great routine/poor directing.

Superb routine Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on March 14th, 2019
John Carey created a great routine with this version of the bank night plot. He really took the plot to a new level.
It is super easy to do. But what I like most is that you can take the principle to any 4 to 4 matching idea. It works even with 10 cards.
I personally like it more, if you take the spectator to the winner stage instead of the looser stage.
Take the method for a matching ESP-Card Routine,picture and number cards, blank postcards and four picturepostcards, whatever your imagination takes you to.
Thank you John, great job.

You buy more the presentation then the method. Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on March 15th, 2019
That is fine, I love John Carey's work and this one felt like Spanish school met John's style and they have fused into a great piece of mental magic.

Since you buy the presentation more than the method I would have loved to see more of that in the download.

It is not five stars because it is not terribly inventive in my eyes. Just recently I saw something similar with business cards. It was in a download lecture where I have the feeling John could have attended it as well. (Did not find it right now, may add a comment later to tell what it was.)

To be clear, John gave proper credit. Cannot reveal that because it would tell too much.

Poor Demonstration Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on March 17th, 2019
This is great routine and deserves 5 stars but the explanation leaves a lot to be desired. John uses a black table with black envelopes. This make is hard to see and follow. Also, a much easier way to demonstrate this (not do it) is if the envelopes with the bills had a different colored stickers. Perhaps yellow, red or green. Then it would be much easier to follow and even practice. So the routine get 5 stars and the demonstration gets 2 stars. Average 3.

Bankwave is GENIUS Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on March 17th, 2019
Brilliant thinking, routining and presentation. This is very, very clever. Watched the demo, thought I had it figured out. Wrong.

At this price, definitely a steal and my best purchase so far this year.
