its not out of the packaging performing...u need a lot of practicing, and there are some sleights
that can easily get detected even if u are really good at it..

Yes,simple it is,and a clever gimmick.However it does need a fair amount of slieght of hand and
certainly some lengthy practice which is not explained in the advertising of this trick.Perhaps not
a trick for beginners at least.

As I say in the title, I like the concept, the gimmick and other materials that come with the DVD.
Jeff also teaches an extra trick with cards that is lovely (production of four aces).
having performed this effect for a number of friends and family, people are distinctly underwhelmed.
They do not see me doing any 'tricky' moves (so it is unlikely that the problem is about
technique so much). Rather, they come to the only logical conclusion about how the trick must work-
and are of course right!
I will continue to work on this one to see if I can find
ways to be more fooling, as I do like the concept and materials.

While I love the effect, I can't quite help but to feel this is something more tailored for
magicians than laymen.
The moves used aren't too difficult, but at the same time you'll
need to practice this a bit in order to be able to perform the whole 'routine' perfectly. The
'gimmick' you get is definitely quite nice. I just don't think laymen will like this effect too
much. And this could be because I'm a magician, but it's kind of obvious at times what's going on.
Didn't take me very long to figure out the method without getting the DVD, but I bought it anyways
to learn the proper handling.
Will I be performing this? Probably not. Why? Because in
order to do so You have to have the ONE key and ONE keyring separate to your normal set of keys that
are all together in one lump.

What a fantastic item to carry around. It does take a little practice, but it is something that you
could create an endless number of routines, from the simplest with little or no sleight of hand to
something more complex. the seemingly VERY young magician Jeff Prace obviously put a lot of thought
into this and came up with something very good. Congratulations to you, Jeff! Before it came, I
had a thought that I knew what it was going to be and started to have second thoughts about whether
I should have ordered it. It is nothing like what I thought, it is so clever, and I love it! Thank

I read a lot of the previous reviews before making the purchase. A number of them seemed to dislike
the fact there was sleight of hand involved. Oh heaven forbid we have to practice an effect before
we debut it. If being a magician was supposed to be easy everyone would be one. This a fun effect
that would appeal to anyone. Yes there's a little, and I do mean a little sleight of hand, but it's
chock full of magic. What matters most is you start clean, and end clean. Would I recommend this
to a neophyte? No. But if you are comfortable with rudimentary sleights, and a little
pocket/audience management you'll have a great effect that doesn't use a table, and is performed at
chest height. Those two features alone make it a worthwhile effect. Well done Jeff.

Bonus Effect: 10/10
minimal practice required but doesn't work out of the box

I've used this effect more than a dozen times in the two weeks since receiving this DVD. A real
head-scratcher for my victims (err...I mean spectators).
This is a real organic worker. The whole routine makes perfect sense. It comes with all the gimmicks
which are all excellent quality and well done DVD. Jeff gives adequate instruction and even throws
in a bonus card effect wherein he locates the 4 aces
