If you are familiar with Paul Harris' Reset trick, this is pretty much it but make way easier.
Unlike the original, you don't have to use some difficult slight of hand because the cards do all of
the work for you. There is one move that you will have to learn and it will take practice but
overall this trick is still way easier to do.
The only downside is that the cards can't be
examined by the spectator afterwards but if you just put them away right away they won't even ask.
But, on the plus side, this trick is much more visual that the original so you will get better
The routine it basically Paul Harris' infamous Reset except that it's gaffed and has a "kickback"
There really isn't anything wrong with the routine, but
I truly just got this
set to obtain the cards.
This is a great visual trick that is absolutely baffling.
So is the demo video though. The
trick does not explain the same handling of the Asher Twist as performed by Oz in the demo. This is
a shame as Oz's version is more visual and the main reason I bought the trick. With no learning
video either it makes the purchase a little disappointing.
However, perfroming it as described
in the trick is worthy of three stars.
When I saw Oz do this in the video I was sure he was using more cards then are shown when he spreads
the flourish of Aces, but he's not! A sleight is required if you want to do this the way he does in
the video, & if you purchase the trick you get to watch the video, but its still going to take some
work to get it down & smooth.
If I can master that part of it, it will be a good trick but
defintely going to take some work. There is another way the trick can be done w/o the moves but its
not as convincing because you'd have to hide the cards under a table or behind your back.
The free online video also gives you a way to end clean where everything is examinable if you
follow the procedure--this part isnt in Oz's video, but you do get access to it with purchase of
Ricochet so its a nice bonus.
BOTTOM LINE--Good trick, might be one of your fav's if
you're willing to learn the sleight.
This is a great trick, but only if you practice a lot with it. The sleight is kind of tricky, but
once you have it down, watch out! Your audience won't have a clue....
This is without a doubt one of the top 5 tricks in the entire shop. It is easy to do, even for a
beginner! This is an amazing effect that blows all other card magic out of the water. Get ready for
a ricochet ride as misdirection is a must! Without thought, add to cart now!
Talk about an underprice! This is a masterpiece! QUALITY made, explained well, 2 different methods,
bicycle cards, made by Paul Harris....If thats not reason enough for you to buy it, maybe this is:
ITS ONLY 12.95!!
I really think this trick is a great trick!! It is one of my favorites!! I gave it a four because
the instructions don't explain the asher twist well.
I bought this effect at Abbott's get together last year and it is a good trick when you follow the
instructions, but with the asher twist it is a great item! Maybe the original version should be
employed (use of a silk) in the demo, just to show how incredibly deceptive this effect is. In live
performance this is the way to go!
Nice! Performed it a few times, everyone was baffled! They thought I grabbed four kings from
underneath the table or something, but when I handed out he cards for examination and showed there
was nothing under the table, they didn't say one more word! Exellent trick!
