Double Take is a deceptive double color changing deck routine wows even seasoned magicians. This long time feature, direct from Paul Richards' working repertoire is an original and offbeat take on a classic premise of card magic.

You display a red back deck of cards. The spectator is asked to select three cards from the deck and each card is removed. The cards are seen to have red backs and still the magician slowly changes each selection into a BLUE BACKED card! No extra cards are used, only the three selections are in your hands! You now pick up the remainder of the deck - and they have all changed to blue backed cards!

But before the spectator can say the words, "Can you change them back?" - the cards change back to the original color!

It's ultra visual magic that is easy to perform and - best of all - it never fails to garner serious jaw dropping reaction! Double Take uses no rough and smooth, no high tech moves, and the deck can even be used for multiple effects before the big change occurs!

Also includes a bonus Ultra Fast Change in which the deck apparently changes color with just a "wave of your hand"!

Comes complete with Bicycle gaffed deck and detailed instructional DVD with additional ideas and insights.

Decent trick, but overpriced Report this review

(This review is for Double Take by Paul Richards)
My title pretty much summarizes it. I bought this in the Open Box, but if I paid full price, I wouldn't be happy.

The effect is decent, but this should be a $7 download instead of a $25 effect. Yes, it comes with a low-quality DVD and deck (including the "gimmick"), but most people browsing this site would have the extra cards necessary to create this deck.

Another issue I had with the effect is that it's too "fast n' flashy." During most of the effect, you're just providing your audience with quick flashes of the cards. Yes, I understand why, but I have an issue with effects that leave the spectators feeling like "something fishy just happened." That being said, it's a neat effect, especially if you're working in a place where people are drinking ("fast n' flashy" works good with this type of crowd).

If you can grab this in the Open Box, I recommend it!

Great color changing deck effect. Simple to learn and you can add whatever pattern you like to make it unique to you. Paul is a great teacher. I do this in my strolling set and get great reactions. The initial color change just shocks them and when it changes back it leaves them speechless. Plenty of cards to do a few tricks first then crush them with this to end it.

Great table hopper! Report this review

Perfect for table hopping or opener/closer. Deceptively easy. Very entertaining.

Price is a little steep for what you get but damn good effect nonetheless.

I love this illusion with color changes right in your hands
Performed it for my senior magic club members and they thought it was great. The one slight it uses gives me a small challenge but I'm working on it. I love this trick
