Great effect but misleading information Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on June 11th, 2011
In general it's a trick with strong effect. If you perform well, audiences could never know how you do that.
However, the promotion information is misleading.
It said it's nearly moveless. The promotion video was edited a lot. In fact a part of routine was never shown in the video. When the performer does this part of routine, there is no mis-direction. You have to move a lot. All the audiences are looking at what you are doing.
It said No Memorized Stack, No Complicated Math. In fact, in the main effect, Patrick Redford offers three choices of stack. The easiest one is not a memorized stack. It requires no Math. However, when you use this stack during the part of the routine, it's a little bit odd. Spectator may question you. The second stack is less odd but requires complicated Math. The third one is memorized stack, and it was never taught in the DVD.
For me, I choose the easiest stack. Although it's a little odd during the performance, the spectator will never know how you do the effect in a deck which was never touched for the entire time. The red deck and red box could be fully examined by the spectators after the performance.
If the promotion information was not so misleading, I'll give this trick 5 stars. I deduct two stars because of the misleading information and video.
Great effect, but lots of initial set-up Report this review

I love this routine, its easy, but does require some pre-"arts and crafts" - which I don't like to do. Effect is easy to perform, and one of the better ACAAN routines I work with.
A Little Disappointing Report this review
Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on April 10th, 2013
I took the time to make the gimmick, memorize the stacks, and learn the routine but didn't like the effect that much. I only performed this a handful of times and ever time, the spectators had a look on their faces like "something just happened". They were still surprised when the card was found at their selected number but there was still a sense of "something was fishy about that". I guess it just didn't work for me - a waste of $30...I do applaud those of you who loved the effect and made it work for you.
Awesome Trick and gimmick Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on March 16th, 2011
I really found this video very informative. Much of the video has very good explanations. Some are abit lacking and hurried. Overall you will take more away than the price you paid.
Good but not for everyone Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on April 8th, 2011
This effect is fairly good based on the reactions I have had performing it about a dozen times. However, it isn't for everyone. You do have to be comfortable making the gimmick and using it as well. You should have intermediate card handling skills/knowledge to do the walk-around impromptu version, and of course you really need to be comfortable performing for real people. It's not for the beginner nor for those who have limited comfort/experience doing performances with strangers. If you aren't too cool with gimmicks, you may not like this. If you are, then this one is worth the price.

The trick itself is a fantastic ACAAN to watch, with that said though the trailer and the description is completely misleading.
That part where it says "no memorized stack" is completely false. Right in the beginning of him teaching you the trick he says its a memorized deck in the beginning. As well, the "move" you need to get it into the memorized deck and into position is so blatant that its hard to believe; and btw he never shows the full routine in the video so you don't see him perform that blatant move.
I think the gimmick you make could be used for other tricks, just would take some imagination for the use.
Don't waste your time on this trick, its a good premise, but not worth it in in the end.
nice effect Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on September 13th, 2014
It's really a nice effect but (again) a bit too gimicky in my taste. Plus, for the price they could have include at least the two gimmicks that we need instead of buying one this hard to come buy if you don't have a magic shop near you and the other that you have to construct.
It says no memorized stack but it's not true.
For the thing about "virtually moveless" it's kind of true. It's not really " a move".
I really liked the impromptu effect though.

I abhor trailers that leave out key moments in the routine like Patrick Redford does for Hands Off. The key move is so brazen he couldn't put it in the trailer and I can't imagine this really fools the typical spectator. Plus it's angle sensitive, it's really hard to justify having two decks and there is heat on both those decks, neither of which can be examined.
If the assembled gimmicks game with the DVD the price might be justified but they have to be constructed by the purchaser.
Very disappointing-a very misleading trailer.

I prefer his "shell deck version" over the other gaffed deck
Do not recommend Report this review

Do not recommend, you need to destroy a deck of cards + Buy a gimmick that costs $10.
