Awesome Potential Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on February 17th, 2013
Firstly let me say I am so glad I bought this trick. The beauty is in its simplicity and adaptability. You are given 8 different handlings plus some brief but useful passes and moves. If you can't find a way of incorporating this into your style of performance, then you're not even trying.
The teaching style is very impromptu (think youtube) and the video quality isn't polished (the autofocus on the camera constantly struggles to find its range) but it will not prevent you from learning these effects.
Although the beauty is in the simplicity, I did find it took quite a bit of practice to be able to repeatedly and cleanly execute the effect. It was time well spent, just don't expect to be expertly performing this 20mins after watching.
Overall, a great set of effects for those who know their basic card passes, lifts & flips. For beginners, definitely still buy this but get a card basics DVD too.
KILLER, visual magic! Report this review

I caught the trailer for John Stessel and JM's "Merge" and I was blown away by the visual changes. If it wasn't JM, I would have thought it was trick photography or some magicians punk'ing us on youtube. I hit the order button immediately! JM is the Paul Harris for a new generation! Justin's methods and routines have improved the way I perform magic!
Merge has something for everyone, from beginner to a seasoned worker. It's visual, in their face magic that you will do!

One of the most under rated videos on penguin Report this review

I bought this on the discounted price, but it is worth far more for a worker. You can use this as part of an ambitious routine or there are many utility moves that you can incorporated in various other tricks. I will say that the 'method' or the 'utility device' serve the same purpose, its part of the trick but serves as part of the deception and it eliminates having to have a card signed.
I was not necessarily blown away by the trailer, but what you get are alot of instruction and handling and this has to be one of most unrated videos(video quality ok) on penguin....especially for price. Like others said nothing new. Except a new way for moves that have been over done and over exposed in a new visual way.
If you already have visual card changes in your routine you might not benefit so much from the video but if you wanted to add a couple of more elements to your routine the value is there.
The only reason this is not 5 stars is because it is not strong enough to be a closer nor do i think it was designed to be.
Such a great principle Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on October 24th, 2015
This is brilliant! The only criticism that I have is the production quality and the mobile phone that keeps going off in the background while the effects are explained. That I've still given this 5 stars despite that tells you how good this really is. It's not just the merge effect either, it's all the routines you get to use the principle with and the bonus extra moves and routines that you get with it. Amazing value and amazing magic.
