Not what I expected ... Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on April 30th, 2015
To me it seems more of a guess than an effect. The explanation is straightforward, but since the "effect" was not, for me, as strong as advertised, the explanation became somewhat inconsequential. This is no criticism of Mr. Schlutz’ work, but simply a review based on my personal preference. If you like a less abstract way to achieve an outcome, this is not for you. If you are daring and have the self-confidence Mr. Schlutz obviously has, then you may find it more suited to your style.
Again, I believe that everyone's work should be celebrated; as it is an expression of his or her dedication to something all of us love and enjoy. Therefore, my comments are not meant to criticize or demean what is being offered. I base my evaluation solely on whether I would integrate this effect into one of my routines. Personally, I would not due to the guess factor. For those who need more predictability in the outcome, this is not for us. I'm sure others will enjoy the challenge and find it to their liking. Thank you Mr. Schlutz for your presentation and for bringing Decon-2.0 to us.

Killer mentalism Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on May 2nd, 2015
This is one of those wonderful effects where the audience thinks there's a whole lot more going on than really is. Events happen so quickly for the participant that they think something miraculous has happened.

Small gimmick is required. Takes maybe 30 seconds to make and I guarantee you'll have what's needed to make it.

This will be my effect to use when someone says, "Okay, read my mind," or "Okay, fool me."

Very well thought out. Very sneaky. Requires hardly any skill or practice time. I was doing it 10 minutes after watching the video.

Not Very Good Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on June 10th, 2016
There are several problems with this routine and the presentation offered in the download. First of all it is just a boring magic trick. There are too many potential climaxes leading to nothing, "oh, I'm not that good" type situations that get spectators rolling their eyes and checking their watches. The couple in the demo video were exceedingly polite to sit through 5 minutes of that to get to the conclusion, which is rather weak. The process of getting to the end is convoluted and hard to follow, making spectators space out. I realize the idea was to cause chaos to get the spectator to think there was no way to know the selected card, but there isn't enough of a solid foundation to build on. Finally, this effect requires preparation of the deck (although a quick one) that you can't do in front of spectators, so they can't shuffle it ahead of time.

Decon 2.0 by Ryan Schlutz Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on May 2nd, 2015
I can just say, I love it. It's a perfect mentalism card effect, that packs a huge punch. The first people I preformed it for screamed and told me that I probably sold my soul to the devil. It is SUPER easy to do, and only takes about 20 minutes of practice. Before I bought it, I thought it was 2 methods, both of them were wrong.

TL;DR: Buy it.

It is slow Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on June 11th, 2015
It takes a long time to get to the reveal with no jokes or excitement before hand.

The reveal is strong, and I would give it a five stars if he provided some sort of entertainment between the start and the revelation.

Mentalism typically takes longer between punches, and this is a weakness I try to avoid. If you can come up with your own humor or interesting story to use in the in-between, this is a winner. As is, it is overly complicated and drags.

Decon 2 Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on May 15th, 2015
Disappointed it's really is pick a card and name it I suppose taking a bunch and the way picking the suit is a clever way of dressing it up but not for me. There are many other ways to get a similar effect . I have to say Ryan performs it well and maybe it needs a bit more practice.

Clever... Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on May 11th, 2015
Very clever way to "read" minds, but will take some audience management and confident patter...

As always... Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on May 11th, 2015
Ryan Schlutz is so clever. He consistently takes simple methods that have been around forever, and finds new ways to apply them and hide them in order to create effects that are truly remarkable. His construction makes the effects hands-off, powerful, and impenetrable. Decon 2.0 is no exception. While not something you could do with a borrowed deck, it is impromptu. The instruction is very clear. Get it!

Nice touch... Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on May 7th, 2015
This is my first review...and it's the first time I've ever received a personal video invitation to write one. That's a nice touch, Ryan. Very nice.

The breakdown of the effect is clear and I look forward practicing it to make it look as effortless at Ryan makes it appear in the demo. Offering a whole chunk of cards is certainly a nice break from the ol' "take-a-card" conceit.

Thanks again for the time and talent you put into your work. I am eager to see more.
