Truely Amazing but.. Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on November 23rd, 2005
The idea is excellent. The trick works 99.9% of the time and is guranteed to get some very excited spectators. Their faces are literally stuck in WOW for ages after the trick.
Like many have said the trick is great because no routine is neccessary. Somthing which i see as a Great advantage. I hate routines personally, i just like to go with the flow.
However there is a But..
The riffle shuffle is needed in order to make this trick work to its advantage and if you arent that great at that type of shuffle because of either you being a magician thats mainly coins or a total beginner or whatever, this trick is not recommended for you. In order to pull this trick off you need to do some excellent riffle shuffles but by excellent i mean like make it seem you do them all the time. You dont wanna really show off the riffle shuffle too much.
If you're good at the Riffle. Its a great trick. I've used it in clubs, bars, restuarants and college. A Truely remarkable trick. I recommend it for magicians expirienced in the hnadling of cards.

Ok, don't get me wrong, this is a good deck of card and the effects are not that difficult to produce but they are quite limmited. I'm keeping this one at home to do some house tricks when my guests are asking for more Magic. Buy this deck of card if you want some new effects but be sure to get a svengali, stripper and photography deck before, they are way better. And no!, he's not teaching the manipulation he did in the demo.
Not as good as it appears Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on January 29th, 2004
The shuffle is a major part of this trick, and so when you get the spectator to shuffle it must be as you state.
At the end of this demo you see a lot of sleight of hand - but don't be fooled (like I was!!) and buy this for that! he shows none of this.
Also some of the moves in here required to perform the effect are not taught very well. He shows you what you should do, but takes about 5-10 seconds showing you, but not actually telling you. Common phrases include "it's just a knack" and "you'll get the hang of it" along with the incredibly annoying "I'm a giver" which appears in every other sentence.
To SUMMARISE the effect works great once, but the revelations can be difficult. If you are really committed to learning these effects, also be prepared to buy other material, as he gives reference as where to buy the books you need to learn the stuff on the DVD!!!

I;ve used the Cardiologist deck since it first came out and FRY people with it.
You can fully shuffle the deck. THEY CAN fully shuffle the deck. Yet, you find the mates of every card, in very magical ways.
Once you know the secret, you can make your own Cardiologist deck in ANY brand you'd like.
Do this as an opener and they will believe you can do anything!
Good enough to perform on TV! Report this review

Still using it after 8 years Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on May 14th, 2013
I've been performing this effect for over 8 years. I don't perform it in my usual routine but rather as a show off piece after my main performance. The trick itself is easy to perform, but you will have to practice your revelation techniques.
Excellent Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on November 15th, 2012
I see some not so good reviews on this, but I find this totally excellent! First, you don't have to be great with a riffle shuffle. Come-on! Anyone can do a riffle shuffle. You can even just push the two ends together without doing the fan finish. Also, he teaches some really cool ways to reveal cards. I personally don't like the idea of showing that all the cards have "found" their mate after shuffling. I think it is more powerful to have spectators cut to three or four cards and have a unique way of revealing up to four cards. There are so many easy ways to do so. He teaches some really cool ways to reveal the cards, and there are many that are easily done, such as a false cut, putting the pack behind the back and just pulling out the card, turn the deck over and flip the card from the bottom as you pretend to cut to the middle (he teaches this one, and it is awesome!), or any number of other ways. Also, due to the nature of the effect where you are pulling up the pairs for any card they select, it lends itself to a lot of entertainment. I like to use a match-maker theme to see if people have the "true love gene". I go around the table performing the match to whatever card they cut to for each person, however, for one person, their match never comes up. Magicians never want to have a "trick go wrong". However, people just want to be entertained. It is a lot of fun to have everyone but one person's match come up. For this person, I end by doing a simple force of the two of diamonds on them and I have a specially prepared two of hearts in an envelope in my pocket. For example, prepare a gimmick as follows: Cut out a heart from any card and glue is to a metal shim. Erase one of the hearts from a card using a stiff ink eraser. Place a small flat magnet under the card and the shimmed heart on top of the card where the heart was erased. When you take out the two of hearts, show it to them and "pull" the heart into your hand using the magnet underneath as you hand them the card as a souvenir saying "Don't sweat it, you only need to find one true love". I like to write an inspirational saying on the card and sign and date it. This gives them a souvenir they will likely keep. You could put your website on the card if you like. I tell them to use it as a bookmark. This is a great effect and I highly recommend it.
not too bad Report this review

First off, I cant believe anybody wrote bad reviews for this deck. It is so much fun. The one thing that's not that good is the fact that it does not work every time. If you are going to make something that is already out there, you might as well make it foolproof. Other than that I say that you should get it.
Cool/good fun Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on February 20th, 2006
It is a great deck, but it dose not work every time. I got it a couple of days ago and watched the dvd, even so i still scrwed up a couple times. I'm not trying to say that it is a bad deck, I love it! The things he dose on the dvd are hard to learn but if you practice you will get it. Personally I think that revealing the entire deck paired up at the end makes people realize how it is done. I did it once to someone and they were fooled up untill the end when i reveled the paired up deck. So I say get it.
Get creative Report this review

Tomas was right in this regard ...this is one Diabolical deck of cards. Some of his routines on this DVD are pretty good, but you dont need them. Get creative...I came up with 2 or 3 ways to get thru this deck after only 1 day, it seems to go much better if you just make stuff up as you go...It is also a great way to really do some very clean riffle shuffles and still have complete control over this deck of cards...have some fun and add to cart a.s.a.p
