Thought Wave by Gary Jones & Mark Bendell
Gary Jones is very well known for creating 100% commercial routines, which play as well to the Lay Spectator as they do to magicians. Thought Wave is no exception!
With Thought Wave Gary and Mark has taken a principle and given it a new lease of life with an incredible mind reading card routine.
You start by writing a prediction (sight unseen) on a business card, Post- it note etc. The card is folded and placed on full view on the table.
A small card which contains 52 different symbols is examined by your spectator who then merely thinks of one of the symbols.
You now write something on another card and once again fold it and place it in full view. At this point you have committed to two predictions without your spectator giving you any information.
You then ask your spectator to draw his symbol on the outside of the first piece of paper. The second prediction is now placed onto the spectators hand and they name aloud the first playing card that comes in to their mind (absolutely no force) they now write their thought of card on your second prediction.
You now draw attention to a deck of cards which has been on the table since the start of the effect. The cards are removed and shown to have images on the back of each one. You remove their freely chosen card and the card with the freely chosen image on its back.
I bet you can see where this is going!! Your spectator now opens your first prediction (the one they have drawn their image on) and it reads the 5 of clubs. When they turn over the card it is in fact the 5 of clubs!! You now state that the second prediction was even harder as the spectator could name any card. When they open prediction number 2 they see you have drawn a clock. They turn over their freely named card only to reveal a clock on the back!!!
This really is a 100% commercial routine that has been well thought out and packs a very big punch!
No Memory Work, Instant Reset, No Switching of Predictions in any way, No Sleight Of Hand Totally Self Working
Comes Complete With Special Deck, Plastic Symbol Card and full instructional DVD which includes both Gary Jones's and Peter Nardi's handlings of the effect.

I have made many magic purchases over the last 15 years and now I am stumped as to what I can get to surpass this effect. Two revelations for a routine that you can make as swift or as long as you wish. Thought waves and Knock'em Dead 2 are now my favorite effects. I can't express how much I love just performing this. It is easy to master and an instant reset. The only practice to put in is your patter. It is as easy as that. I go from this to Dreamweaver and I leave people stunned. I am a believer of Peter Nardi and Alakazam's products. I love Penguin for carrying these brilliant effects.1 of 1 magicians found this helpful.

im not too sure why alot of people havent grabbed this and reviewed it but this thing is amazing and very VERY easy to perform allowing you to take your time with your presentation. i think alot of times as performers, we kind of rush through things. not that you want to put your audience to sleep but make sure they understand the effect.1 of 1 magicians found this helpful.
not a bicycle deck but i just say its a cheap dollar store pack to write all over. deck is pretty interesting actually. its as simple as this: write a prediction, hand it to your spectator, well...youve seen the demo. its not misleading at all. i got screaming reactions from this last friday. i perform this EVERY time somebody asks for something. ad to cart.
Fantastic Trick! Report this review

I've made many purchases from Penguin Magic and I've liked them all, but this one has quickly become my favorite after only owning it for a couple of weeks.1 of 1 magicians found this helpful.
I will say that I was a little disappointed in the fact that the deck is not a Bicycle deck, and I was a bit put off by that fact when I first opened my package. In fact, I let the deck and the DVD sit on my desk for quite a few days before I really took the time to look at it with any interest.
I put aside my thoughts concerning the look of the deck and decided to study the explanation of the trick. It's very simple to master and it's practically self working and instantly resets. I've shown it to about a dozen people so far and not one person has even mentioned the fact that the deck is not a Bicycle deck, in fact, it's never even come up. They are so blown away by the effect that it doesn't matter to them.
I am sorry for having doubted this fantastic trick and like I said, it's become my favorite. Add this to your cart...you won't regret it!

Peter Nardi is the best! Report this review

What else can I say? If Peter Nardi backs an effect then I'm getting it. I haven't been disappointed yet. This is no exception. I love it.
Ingenious mentalism effect... Report this review

This is a little gem.
The use of ESP 'symbols' alongside an 'ordinary' deck of cards is a killer combination for lay audiences.
I tried this one out on my (highly sceptical) wife, who looked truly flustered when the symbols and cards matched.
Basically, Thoughtwave allows you to create a minor mentalism miracle right in front of the spectator's eyes. They watch every step and will be totally unable to backtrack or figure out how such an unlikely 'coincidence' could possibly occur!
A must buy.
