Leaves them speachless Report this review

This is one of the very few effects that I perform that I feel comfortable performing anywhere and any time without any fear of being caught. Under all conditions, this effect is brilliant. You can be surrounded by people intensely stareing at you and this effect can still be pulled of. One of the major problems people have is that not everyone wears shirts with breast pockets and if it's a girl you are, it's somewhat intrusive (I found that out the hard way). You can just as easily use a jacket pocket or a sweatshirt pocket while performing. The effect is not hard to master with some practice. You should be fooling people in a few days after reveiwing the DVD. Oz Pearlman is not anything special as a magic teacher (not like Greg Wilson or Richard Sanders) but you get the whole effect. This effect is worth the money and I highly recomend it.
Clutch is totally awesome Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on January 13th, 2011
Oz has done it again. He's taken an old effect which many magicians arent aware of and added his genius to it which turns it into something no less than phenomenal. I had been performing this routine for a number of years and it always got a huge response. However, I had to do all the work, the shuffling of cards along with placing the card into the deck. What makes Ozs performance so awesome is that you can use the spectators deck (or a borrowed deck), allow the spectator to place his or her card into the deck, and allow them to immediately shuffle the cards until they are blue in the face. I can now show my hands totally empty and with next to minimal handling, reveal to the audience that the spectator has been in control of the cards for the majority of the routine. Oz uses a secret method for you to instantly locate the spectators particular card which is simple as can be and so unsuspecting to anyone around. Whats more, you can learn this method and apply it to many other card routines. Even if you know how this routine is done, learning the method is well worth the purchase alone.
Oz is thorough in his teaching leaving nothing out. In fact, I learned from my own personal routine where Ive been making some mistakes that made my own handling more difficult than it could have been. For the money, this is purely simple to learn, profound, gets a huge reaction, and is a must be for novices to professionals alike. You wont be disappointed!

Clutch is one of those great tricks that just haven't been done. Unlike a lot of "new" stuff out there, this actually is a brand new, fresh trick. The handling is very natural and there is very little slight of hand used so beginners can quickly learn this too. The best part is that it happens in the spectators pocket unlike most tricks where it's in yours. If you get this, you will learn a trick that will always get great reactions from your audience.

I really like this trick but the only problem I have with it is the price. I think that this should be 9.95 like the rest of the instant downloads because there really isn't anything that special about the trick. But this is a really good trick and I would def add to cart. If money is not a problem then ADD TO CART.

Great little routine Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on October 31st, 2013
I like this routine. It is a new take on a trick I used to do a lot.
The selection of the card is also pretty cool although there are a lot better ways to control the card that are just as easy and do not leave a tell.
Overall well worth the money to me.
awesome trick for anytime no setups needed Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on October 26th, 2013
Awesome trick for needing no set up work I can't understand why people are complaining on the price for it on other post. Id pay over 50 dollars for it. It's an improvisational trick, real easy to do and packs a big punch to my audience and keeps them wondering. I don't know if I will use it as my closer or just before intermission but it's one of the best. I will post me doing it on my facebook page as soon as I record it on my next show add me as a friend and come and watch if you'd like.

This is another one of those awesome effects that goes to prove that there truly is NOTHING more magical & powerful than simplicity!
It works every time & it ALWAYS leaves an impact!!!
One of the EASIEST tricks I've ever performed!
If you decide to purchase this download then I would also recommend that you include it as part of a package deal with other effects such as: Self Tying Shoelace, Kicker, Two Dollar Window, & Dress Code. These are all EXCELLENT illusions offered at insanely low prices!
YOU WON'T FIND THEM ANYWHERE ELSE!
Simple, Yet Powerful Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on January 26th, 2012
In the promotional video Oz states that "the best tricks are simple" and that's no lie when it comes to Clutch. I have performed Clutch about three dozen times before writing this review and have been flawless in performance. The effect is as clean as the demo reel shows and has an amazing impact. Spectator's eyes light up when you immediately hand them the deck to shuffle after they selected their card. The reveal is super quick and requires no sleight of hand. My advice, develop a patter that fits your image and you have an extremely powerful effect.

3. the reaction is just real strong
Takes a little practice Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on July 3rd, 2011
First and most important: this illusion works exactly like the promo shows. That is always key in my mind.
Second: I feel like an extreme amature, like myself, may have some difficulty with some aspects of the card handling. That is, Oz is very smooth and quick and gives nothing away.
I am much more bumbling but I've gotten around that by "telling a story" that goes along with the trick. That way I can slow down at each stage and, while I'm talking, perform the necessary tasks.
That said, with a little practice anyone can do this!
