Before I ordered this item, I hesitated because I don't like the methods where you put back the
business card with the drawing or the word of the spectator, in the stack of the business cards. For
me, it is not logical. I know, you can say : I put the business card in the stack so I cannot see
what you wrote on this card. But, personnaly, when I saw such an action, I know that there will be a
peek. Sometimes, I do not know how the peek is done, but I know that there will be a peek. I think
perhaps as a magician, but even for lay people, I think it seems odd.
However I still
ordered this item, because I thought the method allowed to be more logical, but it is not the case.
And the suggestion of putting back the card in the stack, then putting the stack in an envelope is
odder and is not a good idea. If you want to isolate a card with an envelope, you put the card
directly in the enveloppe.
But if you don't mind of putting back the business card of the
spectator in the stack of business cards, buy this item, I'm sure you will like the peek.

This is great! Easy review. Definitely a cool idea. Can be used to peek anything written down on a
business card and put back in the business card stack. For sure will be on my mind
Love this peek. Invisible, motivated, full billet peek from INSIDE the stack. Oh and no knacky or
weird moves. You will love this and you will use it for the rest of your life. Yes you can use
double blanks, business cards, borrowed business cards, billets.
If you use business cards
or billets and need a clean, invisible peek (who doesn’t!) then you will like this. It’s a solid,
useable and simple. It’s also very cheap. Buy it now.
I purchased this effect direct from Arthur and not from Penguin after stumbling upon a thread on a
magic forum. The mechanics of this peek can be learned very quickly, it gives a full view of the
card and is 99% angle proof. It's beauty is in it's simplicity like many great effects in magic.
Unlike a previous reviewer I see no problem with returning the card to the centre of the stack to
'isolate' it and with proper framing neither will your spectators. Without doubt this is the best
value full card peek out there.
Underlooked has given me more pocket space. I no longer need to carry my peek wallet.
longer need to either fold or rip a business card to get a peek and my participant can remove the
card from the center of the stack of cards themself. No strange or complicated sleights.
what can you use this peek for? A word, a birthdate, a name, a simple drawing duplication.
consider myself fortunate to have been able to get this directly from ArthurT before it showed up
here on Penguin Magic.
His teaching style is superb.
Just like the previous reviewer, I didn't buy this peek from Penguin, I got it even before it was
It's one of the best, if not the best, peeks I have ever learned. There are
no moves. No sleight of hand. Nothing suspicious. Yet you get a full peek. I am very happy with it
and I highly recommend it.
I bought this elsewhere before penguin released it, but just saw it pop up on the homepage. It is
what I believe is the perfect peek. Every action is justified and completely invisible to the
spectators, the method is so simple I don't know how I didn't come up with it myself.
will be using this peek for future performances guaranteed and I'm sure if you buy it you wont
I know a LOT of p**ks and this one stands out as being one of my favorite in the quick p**k
category. If you offer a bit of palm reading, you can p**k for longer. ;)
It looks and
handles so clean. The beauty is in the simplicity. You don't have to go through a ritual of moves to
get the info. Everything in the ad copy is true. I love folded "card" work, but I like the card to
remain open when possible.
I almost didn't get this because I didn't think I needed
another p**k, but I'm very happy with my purchase. This is a technique that I see myself using for
years to come.
