I purchased this effect from Penguin several years ago under a different account. I got rid of it several months ago, but now I wish I hadn't. Anyway, here's everything you need to know.35 of 37 magicians found this helpful.
This effect is going to require a separate deck exclusively for this trick. Reset is not instant, but rather simple. Trick cannot be repeated with a different card. It will always be the Two of Hearts/Two of Diamonds combo. Not practical for standing. I take issue with the "Free Choice" Claim. The initial prediction card is not a free choice. It is taken out by the magician. I guess you could force it if you want, but it's totally unnecessary in my opinion. If you known a decent false shuffle, you can appear to shuffle the cards at the start. Otherwise, cards cannot be shuffled or examined at any point. Not practical for the pain-in-the-rear type spectator. It's best done at an off-beat moment with a cooperative spectator. I would find it hard to incorporate it into a longer card routine as the deck would have to be switched in, then out again. Not worth the trouble in my opinion. I consider the price to be a bit high considering the limitations of the effect. I do like it though and can be very effective at the right time with the right person. I like the gimmicks and the idea behind it. It's not a trick that you'll use alot in the real world, I grant you that. But it is very, very simple to do. No sleight of hand at all is required.

This trick is such a great trick. The gimmick is so amazing but very very undetectable. You will never get caught doing this trick (unless maybe you keep repeating it). The thing that makes this trick so great is that the spectator can actually stop you wherever you are in the deck. There is no force what so ever. I'm certain that if you get this trick you will be performing it very often.4 of 6 magicians found this helpful.

If you are a hobbyist this trick is for you!1 of 1 magicians found this helpful.
It has everything you would need in a trick:
Powerful enough to stand alone
No slight of hand
A method that will leave you smirking
If your a table hopper or professional:
No way Jose, for table hopping
Don't do this in an uncontrolled setting (wouldn't want the cards to fall unexpectedly
It's basically a neat way to force a card using a trick deck however your able to display The cards.

Got this for Christmas, and really love how easy it is to do.
One minor issue I've come across is people not understanding the whole "find the card's mate" principle. This could obviously just be something I need to work on explaining better.
To overcome that in the meantime, I made a variation to the trick. I will take out an indifferent deck, force THE card, or just take it out myself. Then I deal cards face-down with the Perfect deck and "find" the exact same card.

It really is. This is a very easy and entertaining effect.

Nicely designed. Very deceptive. The only drawback is that it is a dedicated deck. The audience will not realize that though.

Easy to do, but with a strong impact. The spectator really feels like he or she has chosen freely. It's a good head scratcher for the audience.
Very good Report this review

Sorry but I still can't master what appears to be a very complicated procedure.Mark goes far too fast in explaining the opening arrangements for the cards.
I just can't work out the initial 'setting' of the cards and in my frustration have now put 'Perfect'(or should I say 'Imperfect'!)at the bottom of my drawer.
If anybody would like to buy this 'trick' do contact me-unlikely to look at it again-really disappointing.

This trick really is perfect. It is similar in effect to another trick deck which I will not mention, but with that one you can not show the deck as fairly. This is SOOOOOOO clean! It really does look as good as the demo.
One thing I want to mention is that your prediction does not have to be taken from the deck as a "partner" You can just as easily write it on a napkin, a business card, or take an exact match of the card from a different backed deck. I like it being exact myself so I take it from another deck.
Either way this is about as strong as it gets and you can even show the prediction beforehand if you like the open prediction plot.
Another point is if you are familiar with other gimmicked decks, you can incorporate the gimmicks from that with this one to give you more leeway as they say in case you get a spectator who will never call stop. Again, I won't mention that other deck in order to help conceal the secret here, but once you get this trick, AND YOU SHOULD!, then just ask Penguin Chat what deck is made up like that and I am sure they can help you. :)
