"This is a startlingly visual effect with an elegantly simple yet ingenious method." -Michael Weber

"Da Vinci said that 'Simplicity is the ultimate sophistication.' By this mantra, Flux is the most sophisticated effect I've ever handled. A breath taking visual, an elegant and highly original concept that creates a stunning magical moment. A piece of simple perfection." -Luke Jermay

"Roddy is a creative monster! A seemingly endless stream of 'off the wall' creativity and relentless ingenuity. FLUX is evidence of all of this and more." -Dave Forrest

"Flux was the best trick I saw at Blackpool!" -Mark Elsdon

"Flux is a completely fooling and practical illusion. A true worker!" -Cameron Francis

"Flux is a stunningly visual revelation. TV magic for the real world!" -James Went

Effect:



A spectator sights a card from somewhere in the deck - the Two of Hearts. A second spectator is charged with 'psychically locating‘ the card by trying to ‘sense’ which of the face down cards it might be.

Perhaps not surprisingly, he fails, finding instead the King of Spades. in the hope of" discovering the correct card, you offer to demonstrate another psychic phenomenon - ‘automatic writing’!

The face of the King is signed and then, without looking, you begin to stab randomly at the back of the King with your marker pen. When you display your ‘psychic auto-art‘, it reveals nothing but a series of random dots and dashes...but you're not done!

You ask the first spectator to name his card - the Two of Hearts - and to stare intently at the random ink marks. With a gentle wave, right before their disbelieving eyes, the dots and dashes slowly and visually morph into legible text, spelling out the thought of card - Two of Hearts! The signed King is then immediately handed out and can be thoroughly examined.

Includes custom, precision engineered, Bicycle gaff cards plus a custom made tool that will allow you to produce your own cards to be given away as souvenirs. This is extremely visual, ‘slow-burn’ magic at its finest. Ready your senses for Roddy McGhie’s FLUX!

Roddy McGhie is a magician with big fans among magic‘s big names. Until now, he's been mostly operating ‘under the radar‘, applying his incredible talent for creating unique, original close-up to a number of top TV productions.

With FLUX, Roddy is finally giving up one of his most coveted effects. An effect so visually startling you'd swear it was a camera trick!

This trick is dynamite. Just dynamite. Report this review

When I first opened the package and took out the gimmick, within 2 seconds I was obsessed with just making the writing appear. The gimmick is soooooo simple. It's not a fragile gimmick that you have to worry about either.

I love that you can give out the card at the end as a souvenir. Love this trick. Gets great reactions every time. Extremely visual. Love flux.

Superb! Report this review
Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on April 20th, 2014
'Flux' in my opinion looks even better in person than on the demo. It fools me every time I perform it even though i know how it works!

Overall i am really happy with this purchase, the gimmick is great quality and should last a long time if you look after it. Roddys teaching is not bad, but the trick is quite self explanatory once you have the gimmick anyway.. A true Worker , easy to do and I've received great reactions every time I've performed it!

5/5 Buy it now, you won't regret it!! :)

Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on April 24th, 2014
Ok, this one looked amazing in the video on Penguin Magic. I am of the opinion that I have way to many card tricks, but Flux looked crazy and too amazing to overlook. I ordered it and after it arrived was performing it in no time. This totally delivered and is incredibly easy to perform and rediculously deceptive with instant reset. The black marks on a card morph visibly into the chosen card that can be handed out for inspection are you kidding me that's nuts. The gimmick was very well made and should never need to be replaced. Love this one add to cart and get ready for a great card effect.

Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on May 2nd, 2014
This is an excellent trick for those who have mastered the various moves with cards, i.e. Double lift etc

Sadly in my case being a senior citizen with an arthritic problem, the performance is somewhat restricted, (Silly me for ordering it)but nonetheless an axcellent and unique instant miracle for those younger and well practiced magicians.

Well recommended.

Torally Flux Em Up Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on May 8th, 2014
This is a great effect. Visually stunning and boggles the boogers out of laymen. I have done it at every one if my weekly pub gigs and it never fails to get a great response. It just looks so good!

WHY ONLY 4 STARS YOU MAY ASK?

Everyone's circumstances are different but here are the limitations you should be aware of from my point if view.

1) I perform for repeat customers all the time. Often the same people see me every week! Some of them have seen many effects numerous times but with this trick you are limited currently to the two of hearts. When spectators see the same card reveal ever time they know somehow you are forcing. If there were multiple gimmick sets allowing for different outcome I would do this every week. Hopefully they release other card set options I will buy them and perform this eye candy regularly.. for now bitb well be seen infrequently. Its a shame because it is already being requested at my gigs by those who've seen it

2) This effect requires a four card set up in the deck to perform and you don't end clean. Personally I use this as an opener most times and have no difficulty palming off the gimmick and pocketing it at the end. I usually don't like carrying card gimmicks but the impact in this case is worth it.

3) The video shows allowing the spectator to mark the card. I don't want to tip the method but I warn you... do this at your own risk....it can ruin the gimmick! I have my own story line and ostensibly mark the card myself without looking. Its safer, gets great laughs as I randomly stab away at the card like a moron, and really loses no impact from my point of view.

If visual card magic is your cup of tea you should get this one its one of the best IMO.

Hope this helps!

kiss principle is hit again. Report this review
Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on April 10th, 2014
i fell in love with this effect since i have seen the trailer so made a pre order and i was sure that i will not be dissapointed.i received the package today and i must say the idea behind the method is very very simple yet effective. what you receive in the package is enough for you to start the trick out of the box but after watching the DVD you get a clear knowledge of the working of the specially engineered gaff.overall i am happy with the product and the teaching style of Roddy.

An Absolute GEM of a trick! Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on April 29th, 2014
It's no wonder why this trick garnered so much attention at the Blackpool Convention this year. It's perfect...it has it all. ease of working, and knockout visuals! Very creative. Just can't say enough good things about it. I never have been familiar with Roddy's work but I'll be keeping a close eye on him now!...seriously, this is one great worker you will use!

SIMPLE Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on April 25th, 2014
It's REALLY simple. I know it sounds crazy, but it is. It will last a little less than a normal playing card, but he tips how to make it last longer. You have 2 gimmicked playing cards left at the end, that's important to note.

It's great, but the 2 cards is important. It's good!
