note: I'm not listed as a verified buyer because I bought this download off another magic website, not realizing it was also on Penguin.
This is so easy to perform. It involves NO PALMING or other sleight of hand (I don't consider the natural handling of the cards necessary for the trick as sleight of hand), and very importantly, as many may be wondering -- NO MISDIRECTION!
The catch for a perfect trick that is so easy to perform is that the deck is gimmicked, which really doesn't give anything away (The spectator is handling the cards while your back is turned, and you still have nothing to worry about!) The jump cuts in the video are not significant (remember, this trick has no misdirection to compensate for); if the demo fooled you, I promise this would fool you live.
I only give it four stars because I'm a stickler for impromptu magic, and like to do magic with other people's cards (Bicycle only :)
Is this instructional worth $10? -- Absolutely. Rick also explains WHY this trick is so difficult to debunk. This fools magicians. Grab it.

I was going to finally taper off buying so much new stuff from Penguin, but then I saw this trailer and for under $10 had to go for it. Boy was that a good $10 spent, for a real worker. I got the download last night and set up the trick for myself immediately and it's going right into my walkaround repertoire. Watch the trailer, this is as powerful and easy to do as it looks, you can concentrate nearly all your efforts on your individual presentation. This may be one of the best new card tricks I've seen in a long time, and the result is different every time. Reset in seconds and you're ready to repeat it. Well thought out and well taught, and well worth it.
not as good as it looks Report this review

This trick is a nice trick.
But the video is very misleading.
There is one part in the video, which actually convinced me to buy it, which is very misleading.
The chosen card, the ace of hearts, appears to jump to the other pocket and it is on the bottom of the deck in the video.
This makes the reveal very sweet.
when performing the trick, the card will NOT be on the bottom of the deck but somewhere in the middle.
When the card is on the bottom your audience will know you placed it there. when it is somewhere in the middle the audience will start figuring things out.
The trick is not as powerfull as the video makes it look.
The trick also uses gaffed cards.
again simply amazing Report this review

this effect fits my style and my repertoire very well.
i personally do not mind having gaffed stuff. and if in any way there is a need to give things for examination i somehow find my way so that they feel that it is ok.
this method is very clever and i do believe that even magician can get fooled by this effect.
once again Rick does a great job explaining every thing into details and you can easily just catch up and start performing this effect right away.....
i do recommend this.

First off, great trick!
I took the trick one step further and added a SECOND BOX...in that box, I use 26 cards that are the opposite of the 26 cards they have to choose from (if they picked ace of hearts, this pack would have the ace of diamonds etc) and not only did I show them that the card had jumped from the deck to my pocket...I then reveal the deck (a duplicate deck) and show them their card is in fact no longer in the pack!
My spectator didn't notice at all that the cards were different and only noticed that his card was in fact missing from the deck after it had jumped and went to my other pocket. This kicked it up a notch for me. Let me know what you think!

This is my first time ever writing this review. After buying this trick, I was blown away to think how clever and deceptive the secret is. Like he mentioned, the trick is very hard to figure out if done right. It is also angle-proof. The price 9.95, come on man that's a deal there. This trick will get great reaction and you will not regret. However, this trick requires some set-ups and modifications, but its really easy to make, I promise.
Outstanding Report this review

Took very little time to whip up the gimmick and then some time to work on the presentation. Started blowing minds right away with this. This one is diabolical in it's workings and there is nothing hard at all about performing it. In case you are wondering about being able to bring the selected card right out of your pocket this is not explained on the video but it is possible to do with a little more work. I'll put my idea up in the discussion area.
Fun and visual card to other location! Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on April 3rd, 2015
The setup takes a little while but worth it in the end to do this visual self working trick. To be honest, I do prefer Extractor for card to impossible location as there are more than one place where the card can end up, and you can sign the chosen card, and you can't do that with happy travels. But it's still a great trick and much cheaper than Extractor's price tag. And with no difficult sleights, just practise the handling and be aware of your angles, and you have a great trick!
BUY IT!!! Report this review

I purchased this effect a while back and I have performed it several times. It has completely fooled everyone I have performed it for! I highly recommend it for anyone who wants an opening card trick that will allow you to break the ice by performing something that totally blows people away without having to do any difficult slights at all. It allows you to do an undetectable deck switch at the end so you end completely clean, or you can bring out a stacked deck without any fear of being caught. Don't think about it, just buy it already!
