Imagine this: you shuffle a regular deck of cards (no gaffs!) and your spectator takes about half. She shuffles her half, and you shuffle yours. You both start to deal cards face-up. She deals a red 5, you deal a red 5. Could this be a coincidence? She deals a black king, you deal a black king... she deals, you deal, and every single one of her cards matches yours, in perfect order. EACH AND EVERY CARD. ALL THE WAY THROUGH THE DECK.

Perfection is one of those rare routines where spectators handle the cards and are in total control. They don’t just witness the impossible, they experience it.

In performance, Perfection has a similar feel to Paul Curry’s legendary “Out of this World”--the audience gets to make all the decisions, and as each card is dealt the effect becomes more and more unexplainable. The difference with Perfection is that the dealing sequence IS the climax so you get to the reaction sooner and build from there. Modern audiences are fully engaged and react with spontaneous laughter and applause.

  • Instant reset and instantly repeatable!
  • Tons of audience participation!
  • Learn one of the easiest and most convincing false shuffles in existence! This shuffle is easy to do, very versatile and truly gives the illusion of a deck being shuffled.
  • Uses a regular deck of cards--no gimmicks!

As a SPECIAL BONUS, Oz teaches you how to perform Perfection with ESP cards. The ESP Match Up routine allows you to demonstrate your mind reading abilities. It can be done impromptu--at a moment’s notice--by writing ESP symbols on the back of business cards. This is mentalism that can be done anywhere, anytime!

Didn't like this Report this review

Sorry, I'm just not a fan of this effect. The biggest problem for me is that the move that makes the whole thing possible, is too exposed. I hesitate to criticize Oz, because he's a very talented performer, but merely gesticulating your arms in an exaggerated fashion doesn't constitute "misdirection"

The info sheet on this effect compares it to "Out of This World"... I just don't see this as an improvement on that effect, and I think it'd be far easier for a spectator to deconstruct this one. I can't recommend this one.

Perfection by Oz Pearlman

Let me say, what mental brain buster effect!

Effect: The spectator grabs a bunch of cards and you tell them to shuffle. You shuffle your pack, they shuffle theirs. The spectators deals their pile while you deal your pile. All through the dealing process each card matches.

Price: $19.95, spectacular effect for how much you are shelling out

Teaching: I think we all know the teaching of Oz. He knows how to make a beginner able to do his effects.

Difficulty: 3/5 This requires a little more sleight of hand than the usual trick. There are 2 vital sleights to making this effect work, they may seem risky at first but these are covered with the perfect misdirection that Oz teaches

Applications: This trick is an opener that I use when I'm well setup and prepared. Of course the not impromptu factor may turn some heads away. But do not be afraid of this trick. It is all worth it in the end.

Overall Rating: 9/10

Perfection requires a bit of prep work before you start and I keep a deck prepared for this and have another matching deck with me for other tricks.
But I mean..COME ON! The end effect is just mind boggling.

Oz Shines Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on April 2nd, 2010
No better way to start this review than to say that OZ is a really great teacher. I know it's a DVD but he is somehow patient with me (I don't get it either!) Oz is one of those teachers that you aren't afraid to screw up in front of and this is a good thing. Perfection is definitely a good routine. I've had mixed success with it - I've had to be careful to pick people who I assume don't handle cards often. 5 out 7 times I have had people that play poker or similar and have said "you haven't given me half". That aside, the presentation is really great and worth the investment. Definitely a good purchase.

Great routine! Report this review
Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on April 3rd, 2010
This routine teaches you some tools for magic that you will take everywhere! I take the techniques used in this trick and use them all time in other tricks.

The trick by itself is also incredible, the spectator is too amazed to suspect any funny handlings. I've used this on the street to amazing reactions! I highly recommend this DVD.

Good effect but... Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on April 2nd, 2010
This is a very good effect but I don't think it quite deserves a DVD to itself. If this was on a DVD with other effects then I think it would be worth the price but unfortunately on it's own it isn't. That said the trick itself is strong and relatively easy to learn. If you think you can incorporate it into your act and think it will improve your act then I would say it was worth the price.

No Flaw Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on April 2nd, 2010
I have seen many card effects, but nothing has impressed me more then this effect here, Perfection, it truly is a perfected routine. Everything has a reason to it, and the routine flows together and makes sense.
Teaching : Great teaching
Quality : Awesome quality
Live performances : The performances are my favorite part in the DVD because you can see and understand what the effect should look like in real time.
Overall I would reccommend this to just about anybody, it is that good.
Thank you thank you Oz.

Perfection is Perfection Report this review
Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on October 26th, 2007
I like this effect alot, I first saw Oz do this in a lecture last year and it fooled the hell out of me, I did not expect to see an "Out of this world" style ending.

But the main thing is the simplicity and ease that this trick can be done, adding to the fact how the spectators shuffle the cards, without you adding more shuffles to this and making it look suspicious, you just collect the cards back and deal away.

A great effect.

Perfection is GREAT Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on November 30th, 2007
this is REALLY great effect
the audio commentary is great
OZ goes into details with performing perfection
there is KINDA a gimmick, but it'll take literally 3 seconds to do
i've figured out a version to make it really appear as if its the entire deck, and no gimmick

WTF ? Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on December 2nd, 2007
Hi for around 2 years ive closed my show with paul currys out of this world but one problem i found was it took so long to perform. It got great reactions but it took so long so i decided i would go and buy this. I have to say this is very similar but takes half the time. There is a bit of gimmick but you can do it without if you wish. This is a great effect and would advise this to anyone who wants a powerful versatile closer and btw it does not have to be a closer either

Yay! Report this review
Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on December 16th, 2007
Its a very good trick and im sure to do it a lot.

However, spectators do not give the usual: Jumping out of chairs reaction i like to get. Its more a silent, jaw dropping thing.

Still, very impressive.
