"The effect is solid and easily understandable. I find that many two-deck routines can get muddy very quickly. Such is not the case here." - Bryce Kuhlman

Hard Hitter With One Minor Flaw Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on March 7th, 2013
Of all the card effects in my routine, Juxtaposition is the effect that people remember and love the most. The impossible happens under the most fair conditions. What makes this effect so unreal are these: the chosen card is a mere thought in their mind (no cards are ever taken out or even touched by the spectator when it comes to selection), the spectator is the only one who knows the identity of their card from beginning to end, and the thought-of card is revealed at the end when the magician is ready to reveal the indifferent card. Under those fair conditions, the spectator's thought-of card is vanished from one deck only to appear in another deck.
The effect is extremely easy to perform. Devonte explains two methods to perform the effect: one method for skilled magicians (and card skills needed to perform this method doesn't even have to be high), and the other method for all other skills. When performing the method appropriate for all skills in card magic, there is only one sleight that takes virtually no skill to pull off.
There are a couple of cons about this effect, however. Other card effects cannot be done with either decks. If you perform this effect first, you'll have to use a third deck for all other card effects. This effect requires both decks to be set up in a certain way. If you begin to perform another card effect with either deck, doing so will reveal how the deck is set-up. Another thing I don't like is that the set-up involves cards from both decks to be in a particular order. Take note: THERE IS NO MEMORIZATION involved to achieve the effect. This set-up involving cards to be in a particular order is a one-time deal granted you don't use either deck for any other card effect. With that said, I have dedicated these two decks only for this effect because it is inconvenient for me to have to set the deck up again if I mess up the order. That means I have to bring these two decks with me in addition to a third deck if I want to perform this effect with other card effects. Since both decks are set-up in a particular way and order they cannot be examined. That probably won't be much of a problem for anyone because the effect is done under seemingly fair conditions that they won't have the need to examine the decks.
The effect can be performed multiple times in a row but I wouldn't recommend it. Since one of the decks used for card selection is set-up in a particular way and order, a person may be suspicious as to why he or she is always being shown the same half of the deck for card selection.
With all these cons said, don't let them discourage you from not buying the effect. I've performed this many times, and the reactions seem to be better than the previous. If you plan your magic routine just right, you can get away with performing other card effects with this included. You receive a DVD that is produced well. Devonte explains all the details that may come up in real life situations. When setting up each deck for the effect, I suggest you use brand new decks. Following along with Devonte from the DVD as he explains the set-up will be MUCH easier with brand new decks, though it is not necessary to have brand new decks.
I highly recommend this effect to beginners and professionals!
A bit misleading Report this review

The box says "no funny moves." I disagree. There are.
No "sleight of hand" is a bold statement. There is a bold, "funny move." It's even acknowledged during the explanation.
No "forcing selections" is MOSTLY a true statement.
"No gimmicks of any kind." You're setting up two gimmicked decks. That's the truth. I believe that if a deck cannot be examined, it should be considered gimmicked. That is the case here.
You may as well go buy two gaffed decks of your choosing and accomplish the same effect with those decks. You will be just as dirty, and probably spend less.
Not a good trick, Spend your money to other card tricks Report this review

Its not pratical. I dont want to say the trick but there is a lot of preparation, the decks are not examinable and if you want to do more trick to the same persons, you have to change the deck because its like you have a gimmicked deck. In fact the idea is good and the exokanations to, but for the price and the reactions, its not a trick for every one. Spend your money to other card tricks

Pretty sweet little worker...
Though it would have been nice to get a couple decks just like one of the reviewers said...
Otherwise a very workable clean illusion:)

This is a very powerful trick, but it has many drawbacks. The first being you have to carry around 2 decks of cards. Second you must make the decks yourself which means you have to go buy 3 decks of cards. Third the decks aren't examinable. If you want to learn the same effect go get Strange Travelers or learn the biddle trick
Best trick I own Report this review

This is a real reputation maker they don't even have to tell you the card they are looking at it can be in their head.
Awsome And Easy Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on February 25th, 2015
I love this trick because it is easy to do, packs a wholup and is imposible to figure out. I think you can preform this with very little if any chance of getting busted and the other great thing is that the first part happens totally in their mind. You make the card disappear and they did not even tell you what the card was. It provides several Moments of "What Just Happened". I will definitely be doing this trick for a long time. Thank you!

This is the best trick ever. You can also perform it where the spectator doesn't tell you there card until after their card has vanished. A real reputation maker I carry this everywhere I go.
Pretty good! Report this review

I can perform this right off the bat. As soon i learn how this tricks work, any experience card magicians can start off right away with it. However, you need to have a good crowd control and be careful not to let them stare at the first deck. I have to cover some area and try finish off the first routine quicky or move it around a lot so they don't pick it up something weird. The second deck set up is a lot better. It doesn't have any funny looking but however, it have a lot a lot of set up (got confused and have to watch the set up section twice to get the set up correctly). Basically what I'm saying, both are not examinable.
Because it not examinable, and it have funny looking on the first deck, I take away star for that. If they added the double face gaff cards to the package then it will definitely eliminate the whole problem and I wouldn't have to take away the star. Another star taken away is because you paid 30 dollars just to find one trick while binary code by Rick Lax have better effect (mind you it not the same effect) and price value. Just because I bring up the double face gaff cards, it will not exactly fix everything, it just make it look less funny and you will prolly need to buy two deck of double face gaff because you'll need to be selective which one will need to go in.
And dude, don't record this DVD while you're sick! I can hear you making snort noise like you're having runny nose and trying to pull the runny mucus back inside your nose. Even my girlfriend bitching at me to mute you off. You even whip your nose with your hand and still have some shiny mucus on your hand while giving us a speech. -.-
Star taken away.
Cool effect, fun to do, I paid half for this, Devonte doe good job and instruction us well despite his mucus problem. I bump one star up. So overall, it three star.
