GREAT effect! Report this review

Man oh man, have I never been so happy about someone re-releasing an effect! This is identical (as far as I know) to the Michael Skinner monte, which is AMAZING. Now, why am I happy about this being re-released?11 of 11 magicians found this helpful.
Well, first off, I never had any problems understanding the manuscript that came with the Skinner monte. However, the handling here is different (slightly) AND it comes with a video download for easier learning, which is always a plus.
In addition, for 15 dollars, you get some AMAZING quality gimmicks; 2 SETS OF THEM! This is a great value to any close-up worker for an amazing effect.
Very underrated trick Report this review
Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on October 23rd, 2004
I've owned this trick for quite some time now. You can master this trick in 5 minutes, and it gets GREAT reactions. The only drawback is that only 2 of the 3 cards are examinable, but with a little practice, you can switch them out effortlessly. Definitely worth the money.. best gimmick trick I own.9 of 11 magicians found this helpful.
Learning it Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on September 11th, 2014
It's a great routine...well it certainly looks great. But I'm having difficulty learning it because the cards are supplied with are different that the cards on the video instructions. I find it very confusing to try to 'translate' the video's cards to mine. I'm a guy who prefers learning magic by words and illustrations. Video goes to fast for me, and I have to keep pausing it all of the time. I'm sure I'll eventually master it, but it's taking more time than I thought it would take.5 of 6 magicians found this helpful.

This has to be one of the best illusions I've seen in all my years of magic, you can effortlessly do this routine time and time again without being caught, just do it as a third or fourth trick in your routine and specs won't even care about examining the cards. 2 thumbs way way up!4 of 4 magicians found this helpful.

The Penguin Monte Report this review
Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on May 7th, 2006
This effect is so simple, yet it leaves spectators in shock! The trick takes very little practice to perfect. If you carry a deck of cards around with you, then this is the perfect thing to get.3 of 4 magicians found this helpful.
I showed this to a couple of people at my high school, and they could never figure it out. Now they always ask me to "do that trick with the ace, two, and three."
I only gave it four stars because once in a while someone will be able to figure it out if you're not careful, but that shouldn't discourage you (I probably just had to practice a bit more).
Add to Cart right away! You won't be disappointed!
Penguin Monte 2.0 Rick Lax Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on September 12th, 2014
The download video is excellent: well done, well explained, well demonstrated. My only complaint...the included gaffed cards do not match the cards used in the demo. It's probably my fault, but it was hard for me to follow the moves made on the video. I try to learn by matching the moves seen, but since the cards are different, it was very difficult. I asked if I could buy the same gaffed cards used, but those specific ones are, apparently, not available. If you are an experienced card magician it probably wouldn't matter, but for me it was a deal breaker.2 of 2 magicians found this helpful.
Best Monte Ever !!! Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on May 25th, 2005
This is a strong monte and it is easy to do! I was trying to decide what monte to buy and I'm glad I bought this one! Plus, it comes with 2 sets of monte Blue Back and Red back Bicycle cards. I always show this trick to a lot of students in my school that I don't even know! I do think trick with confidence knowing I won't mess up (with 15 minutes of practice, you will have this trick down!) I know it is impossible for me to mess up this trick, plus you get the best reactions, and sometimes wierd reactions, because spectators don't know what to expect! They keep telling me to do another one and another one! They have no clue gaft cards even exist!2 of 2 magicians found this helpful.
