This trick will get the above reactions and it is fun to perform, but You Must Put In The Time that an effect of this quality deservers. Dont buy it and start crying its hard; so is riding a bike when you first start and just like riding a bike, it does get easier with practice. The real trick is just a bit of thinking about what to say, what comes next and what your hands are doing.
A nice, 4 Stars.
Easy of use = Medium, Practice Required.
Audience wow factor = Medium to High
Audience Reaction = No Way!, What The.....? and How?
Audience Target = Anywhere, but really a table top is required.
Could be performed Surrounded = Absolutely, no problem.
Reset Speed = 15 / 30 seconds, out of sight of people.
Examinable = No, but a deck / few card switch would solve that problem.
Fun to perform = Rewarding; It looks good and you know that youve worked for it.
Pricey "Oil" Report this review

A good-looking version of the effect (see Oz's demo), but it does require careful handling and therefore practice to pull off. Of course the cards are not inspectable.

At first I thought this trick was good, and it is, but the instructions are written backwards or something (it might just be mine) and no matter how many times I followed the cards never turned out like they should, the only way I was able to get it down was watch the demo movie and just follow what Oz was doing.

Changed my mind from last review... Once you get the hang of the handling this effect is unbelievable.
NICE Report this review

This trick has a great impact.It can be performed in 30 minutes after receiving it. The trick does have a downside in that the cards will need some attention after use. Great gimmick, worth the money!
Fun to do. Report this review

Although this is fun to do, it does take some practice. Get it. You wont be disappointed.
A Great Oil and Water Routine Report this review

If you've never done an oil and water routine, this is one of the better ones out there. Sure it uses gimmicks but it doesn't matter. It's a great packet trick and you'll have fun performing it. It does some practice to get it right so it isn't one of those right out of the package tricks. After a while the gimmick might start to wear out but just buy some 'gimmick' and they'll be good as new.

This is an excellent trick and well worth the money. The DVD gives a very detailed working. The steps to perform the trick are not difficult to learn but as always it does require practice. It is well wort the time it will take to master. After several uses it will require additional application of roughing solution on specific cards.
Visual, magical, and very gimmicky. Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on March 23rd, 2013
I'll say right off the bat that the effect is very gimmicky. But I assume most have suspected that already. The trick is not hard to do, but it takes practice and effort to make it look smooth and natural. You have to be careful with the card gimmicks, but you can't make it look like you're being careful, or else you'll draw suspicion and the illusion is shattered for all practical purposes.
Due to the method involved, you will need a soft surface to work on. So I don't put it in the "anytime, anywhere" category. I consider it more useful for controlled and formal environments. There's also the issue of trying to make it look organic and natural. In other words, how do you justify taking eight cards out of a little wallet, as opposed to just removing them from a regular deck. That, coupled with the fact that they're not examinable, can be a presentational challenge.
There are solutions to these "problems", but I wouldn't recommend this to beginners at all. Stick to clean, organic, examinable stuff if you're new. But more experienced magicians can find value in this. Oz makes it look so easy, but it takes work to get it down. It's not technically hard, but you have to remember the steps and work on making it look natural.
Written Instructions Fail!! Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on March 28th, 2013
I just received my order few hours ago and I have read the written instructions multiple times. Theres something wrong with the instructions because my card is not on the proper positions on the first reveal.
