LEARN 11 EXPLOSIVE NEW EFFECTS FROM ONE OF MAGIC'S MOST CREATIVE MINDS!
CLIMBER

Jay's 'Climber' effect is a perfect example of a truly original effect AND a truly original method. Dip a drinking straw into a can of soda. Press the tip of your finger over the top end of the straw to trap a few drops of soda at the bottom. Then watch people freak out as you cause the trapped soda to slowly RISE UP THE STRAW. Immediately hand out the straw to be examined (no switch required.) 'Climber' is the ideal magic effect for the school cafeteria, lunch room at work, parties and more.

BORDER CROSSING

Leave it to Jay to combine one of the world's most popular sports with something so ORDINARY as a post card to create a STARTLING close-up production. Jay structured the handling for maximum ease and practicality. Guaranteed to rock both close-up and stand-up performances.

WRAPTURE

A totally fresh approach to bending a borrowed coin, featuring an outrageous new visual that leaves the usual collection of magic bends in the DUST. Jay even teaches you step-by-step exactly how to make this fascinating new coin gimmick in just a few minutes with tools you'll find in any tool box.

EXIT STRATEGY

A devastating, two-phase 'dance' involving a borrowed ring and two unprepared drinking straws. A completely impromptu, in-their-hands heartstopper, it's also dead easy to perform. Any ring. Any 2 straws. Any time.

FISHBOWL

A freely selected and signed card MELTS through a plastic baggie, with the deck AND even the hand holding the pack, SEALED inside the baggie! No gimmicks, no suspicious moves, no bad angles. Combine it with your ACR, card to wallet or Jay's 'Paperclipped' effect. Keep the unprepared baggie folded in the back pocket of your jeans and always be ready to end a close-up set in STYLE.

HEIST

A wonderfully organic transposition with a LETHAL kicker ending. Remove the metal tab from a can of soda. Slip the tab inside the can and have a helper hold tightly to the can. A moment later, cause the tab and a borrowed dime to switch places in a flash of fire. As for the knock-out finishing phase...we'd don't want to ruin the surprise! Completely impromptu, this hard-hitting routine is going to quickly find its way onto your A-list.

SPIRAL

An off-the-hook effect with a borrowed dollar bill that ends with a truly SICK souvenir people just CAN'T get over. 'SPIRAL' includes a very fresh approach to corner switching you are destined to use with playing cards, business cards and more.

EVIDENCE

An inspired combination of a torn + restored card CASE with a devious 'time travel' effect. During the detailed explanation, Jay blows the dust off a little know false cut + teaches you Herb Zarrow's renowned false shuffle.

ENTRANCED

Featuring an extremely clever, double-duty gimmick, 'Entranced' allows you to make almost any small object visually appear inside a box of Tic Tac mints with the untorn, factory seal still in place. Jay teaches two full routines including a mentalist effect with a borrowed coin and a magic effect with the corner torn from a playing card.

BABYLON BAND

Learn the secrets to transforming an ordinary rubber band into an amazing magic tool capable of revealing playing cards, people's names, numbers, dates and more. Keep the band wrapped around your card case or wear it on your wrist, and be ready to astound people at a moment's notice!

THE MAIN ATTRACTION

A 'very heavy' torn and restored handling of a signed playing card. Completely impromptu. No gimmicks, duplicates or set-up of ANY kind. A holy grail. A totally bullet-proof 'worker.'

What You Get

  • The exciting 90-minute DVD features brand new, hard-hitting magic with soda cans, coins, playing cards, drinking straws, note pads, dollar bills, Tic Tac boxes, finger rings, Ziploc bags, post cards, card cases, rubber bands and even golf balls!

  • CLOSE-UP & STAND-UP EFFECTS! Many of the routines involve shocking images with enough visual impact to rock audiences during both close-up and stand-up performances.

Great DVD! Report this review
Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on March 9th, 2011
I am a huge Sankey fan; I own the majority of what he has on the market today. Most of his DVDs easily receive a 5 star rating; however, this one only gets 4.

It was a fantastic DVD, containing very high quality video and in depth explanations. However, many of the performances had moves flashed... I understand it is an explanatory DVD, but Sankey should have done some retakes.

Secondly, there was very little presentation. Most of the effects were just shown with minimal or no ideas for how to present them at all. I am all for people coming up with their own, but how does Sankey perform these if they don't have presentations?

The reason it got a high rating however was the brilliance of the material; Climber is going straight into my repitoire as well as his tic-tac effect. I enjoyed a lot of the material and everything on here is a worker.

Overall, highly recommended.

Did not care for any of these tricks. They are not very creative and a couple of them are pretty cheesy!

Best Sankey DVD Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on October 26th, 2011
This is the best Sankey DVD in my collection.

Critics may say that Jay releases unfinished effects - I say he releases effects you need to make your own before you perform.

Mileage may vary depending on who and where you are, but the material I use from this DVD is ALL on my "A-list"

Somewhat Disappointing Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on November 27th, 2010
Now before you get your dukes up ready to hit me... just listen..

Now I am a HUGE Sankey fan.. I have a ton of his material and he is great.. however.. I think that this particular DVD was slightly disappointing to me in comparison to some of his others and what is out there.

I do think that his new one "insider" looks good though. This doesn't mean I will stop buying Sankey.. but it does make me take a second look before I hit add to cart.

Well..... Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on November 13th, 2010
Well, I must say I was expecting more. The DVD was good quality, and had fairly good explanations by Jay, but the tricks themselves are not all that impressive. I believe the goal of this DVD is to use household items for magic. Sure, some of them are kind of cool, but they are not near as impressive as I expected. Most of Jays other DVDs are very good with VERY thorough explanations. If you are looking for quick tricks, or something to take up a few minutes in a show, I would recommend it, but if you are looking for something a little more impressive, I would say go with something else.
