Obvious Gimmick Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on May 15th, 2009
This gimmick is far from original, but the ideas on using it are wonderful. The new ideas with this gimmick are incredible . . . but as is, this is one of those that looks best on video or stage. Still, my objections can be overcome.
1) The gimmick is bulky, but it alone is not a huge issue. Some trimming can be done to make it a bit thinner, along with basic card handling and mis-direction.
2) The gimmick supplied has glue that leaked on the edges of the card. You can't see the glue when the gimmick is brand new, but the glue picks up dirt fast, and makes a very visible line in the otherwise clean deck. Thankfully you can hand-assemble new gimmicks where this doesn't happen.
All in all, if you make your own gimmick carefully, this can be a lot of fun. My 3 stars is because the gimmick provided SHOULD have been designed a little better (which would mean more work per gimmick) for the price, and instructions on how to make the improvements should have been there.
As for not having verbal instructions, I think they did a wonderful job of demonstrating it, and these were not needed by me.
This gimmick is easy to use - assuming you have basic card handling skills.

As others have said the video demo does sort of lead you astray as to what the DVD actually teaches you, but that aside there are some really good sleights on this DVD. I like the haunted card effects a lot and I like the shooting card too but I actually found the sleights to be the highlight of this DVD. There is a tremendous ace production on the DVD which is a very visual production and one that I have no adopted.
Very Good Video. Report this review

I have used it and amazed people with it it's very good because you get a lot of use on the gimmick. Tricks like RIsing Card, Haunted Deck (Variation), Color Card Change, Card Productions, Card Jump. Very versatile and on top there's other sleight of hand tricks with cards. The best part is that it shows you how to make your own Nestorizer's so that's a plus.

I like this dvd but, I have mixed feelings about the gimmick. The instructions for the effects are performed silently and are very thorough. However, the gimmick is a little bulky and would call attention to itself. There are plenty of great routines on this dvd that don't use the gimmick that are worth learning and if you are intent on using the gimmick he does teach you how to build more.

I like this.Nestor tells you how to make a new gimmick if yours breaks.There are some great tricks like touch.He even teaches you his version of the coin matrix.
Some of my favorite effects are
NTDs: this is a great haunted daeck down under a bowl.Rating: 9/10 Difficulty 3/10.
Blind Date:In this trick you have 2 cards selected,trying to get a pair. You fail, and immediatly change them into a pair.
Rating:8/10 Difficulty 7/10.
Touch:My final favorite effect on the DVD.A spectator touches 4 cards, being the 4 aces.Rating:8.5/10 Difficulty5/10
There are more effects and flourishes producing 4 aces on the DVD.
Pros:Learn how to make new gimmick,
Not very original,
Nestor is French so no speaking in explanation,
Gimmick separates a little bit, but is nothing double-sided tape can't solve.
Do yourself a favor and buy it.You'll use it and comes with some great ace productions and a version of the coin matrix.

This is a simple but excellent gimmick! I use it all the time to my friends and they have no explanation for it. The teaching is silent but isnt bad at all. I absolutely love this product. The DVD also has some great ace productions. It also shows you how to make you own gimmick which is a very good addition. I would definately reccomends this for a card magician.
Cant stop Report this review
Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on February 24th, 2009
I have to say I cant stop watching this D.V.D. ( WoW )This has to be one of the best learning card magic I own to date. Worth every penney. The card tricks are great. This will show you some great moves. Nice for table hoping as well as walking around. There are no words in the D.V.D. but you wont need them. He teaches everything very nice by just showing the moves very carfully. Very well made D.V.D. I would have paid more than 40.00 for this. Thanks Penguin you did it again.
Awesome deal Report this review

This is great, and I can definitely see myself using it frequently (after I practice some more of course...) I would have easily paid more for this. It even teaches you how to build the gimmick if you want to make more. Great, usable, practical material. Definitely ADD TO CART.
Terrible dvd Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on March 3rd, 2009
The dvd has no talking in it whatsoever. But that's not the major problem, the teaching is so incredibly fast and the camera angles are terrible. This may be perfect for some, but if you don't like quick teaching, then this isn't for you. The gimmick is hard to handle and takes a lot of practice. I just wished the dvd would have a little talking in it or text to tell you how to handle the gimmick without much struggle. Hopes this helps.
Great Trick Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on March 4th, 2009
I liked this trick alot. The only reason I gave it 4 stars is because the gimmick was 2 blue cards and they did not include a deck to match those cards. Other then that no flaws. The video explains the trick very well. Even though it has no words it goes over the moves and shows you what you are suppose to do. When I first got it I thought what am I suppose to do with this ( you'll know what I mean ). I am only 9 years old and I can do this trick so I'm sure you will be able to too. Add to cart NOW. ( and get a deck of blue cards with it)
