Switcher Will Blow Their Minds!

One of the most visual and versatile utility props for the card worker ever invented, here are just two of the many effects possible with switcher.

Effect 1
A "card sandwich" with one card turned sideways, trapped between two other cards is placed on the table. A spectator then chooses a card and signs it on the face. You rip their card up into many tiny pieces and call attention to the trapped card which has been in full view the entire time. You turn the cards over and show that the card sandwiched in between is a Joker, which you pull out and wave over the pieces of their ripped-up, signed card. Watch the surprise on their faces when you turn over the Joker and it's now their signed card! Of course, the ripped up pieces on the table are from a Joker!

Effect 2
Two cards are removed from the deck, placed back to back and secured with a rubber band. You then remove a card which will act as a prediction of events to come. This card is slid in between the other two and left in full view. A spectator freely chooses any card from the deck and shows it to everyone. When your prediction card is turned over..oops, it doesn't match! Not to worry, you slide your prediction out from between the other two, wave it over the spectator's selection and it changes to match perfectly! Both cards may be immediately examined.

Switcher includes all of the necessary, ingenious gaffs, rubber band and detailed instructions.

They're after me!!!! Report this review

Great trick. Clever gimmick and, despite what has been said here by someone else, this trick leaves the onlooker fairly confused..

The key is not to draw it out or spoil it with patter. Signed card. Bang. Bang. Bang.. A coy smile.. and that's it.. If you spend too much time with this trick they will get suspicious of the gimmick..

The Title of this review is "they're after me" because the music on the dvd is so ridiculous. It's a 10 second loop of the most annoying car chase movie music ever. I felt like I needed to learn this trick REALLY REALLY fast or they were going to kill me..

With a cool, laid-back attitude, this trick can be performed 5 minutes after it arrives at your house (provided you know a few things about card sleights).

I prefer the effect not shown in the demo video, as it involves no fishy moves of any sort. The price is a little steep, but the reactions of your spectators is well worth it.

4/5 because you cannot be completely surrounded (although, with some practice, almost a 180 degree arch). All in all, its a great trick for a 1-on-1 amazer.

This thing comes with crappy instructions and a way obvious gimmick. You can only do this trick in front of someone. I bought this trick last year with a few other tricks; this trick being one of those crappy difficult tricks that can be done without a gimmick, if you learn a few advanced tecniques if you practice for a few hours. Those techniques are taught by Rodney in hard knocks. Don't buy this thing if you're a biginner looking for a sweet trick to pull off cuz you won't understand how to do it. The only reason I gave it the stars is cuz if someone can pull this off your a good card handler and you get good reactions and the thought it took to make it.
