Is very rare that any book or DVD will supply you with a routine that you will actually put into
your repertoire --this DVD is filled with them.
For the table hopper or strolling performer
it's great to have 3-5 minutes of solid, hard-hitting entertainment that will fit into a shirt
pocket. I also like the fact that you end clean in all these effects.
There are several
good routines with multiple climaxes, and you're certain to find at least one that you can and will
Cards are supplied with this DVD, and it's fairly easy to make up your own. You can
use a joker in place of the blank card. This also means that all the cards are examinable.
I suggest you drop the cheap vinyl wallet and get a leather packet trick wallet.

This is gold! Lightweight card magic in your pocket. Highly mobile! If you like packet tricks, you
will definitely find something here that you will use! May I suggest also getting a wallet to store
your packet tricks and getting envelopes to store them when they are not in the wallet. Manila pay
envelopes or coin envelopes are the best to take care of your cards,. Penguin sells some packet
trick wallets which are a good investment too! You will learn some good magic on this DVD!
The material and recording quality are all great, but you only get one set of cards along with the
dvd. This doesn't let you actually do all of the tricks included. Really should have included all
the cards necessary to do all of the tricks, otherwise it is an incomplete product.
expensive for what you get. Worth it? That's up to you. Not a great bang for your buck though.
Five stars for the routines, which are killers. Explanations clear and concise. I really like
Bannon's dry, carefully paced style. Loses a star for being a rather expensive card trick. Also, why
no over the shoulder camera? It's usual practice these days! Overall well worth the minimal effort
required to learn and perform.
The tricks are not so astonishing, and the cards sent are simple.
Any "Allan Ackerman" or "J. P.
Vallarino" DVD, shows many more good effects for a similar price.

Sometimes a DVD reviews get so over enthusiastic that it seems too good to be true. This DVD
deserves all the praise and more. It's great, get it.
Some great material and ideas presented here, all in packet tricks. Being a huge fan of Bannon's
'twisted sisters' (and honestly, who's not?) I picked this up and was NOT disappointed. I've
already added one of these routines as something I keep with me at all times.. and may add another,
they are that good.
This is a great dvd. Every trick on here is a winner. It is a pleasure to watch and a whole lot of
fun to learn each of the effects. None of them are very difficult, just be sure to practice them a
lot to be sure you can execute them perfectly every time. If you enjoy packet tricks then this is a
must buy for your collection!
Beautiful? Check. Hard hitting? Check. Ends clean? Check
This DVD has it all from the hard
hitting moves like Montinator 5.0 to Chop Shop, this is a DVD for people that love packet tricks.
Now it's John Bannon and Liam Montier so you can't go wrong. Even if you don't know much about
packet tricks, it's a good idea to grab this one because of well like John says you end Fractal or
clean. The gimmick cards can be mixed around and are not hard to replace if need be and Montinator
5.0 was the trick that sold me.
Grab this DVD and learn your Elmsley counts well because
it's something you'll need to have down.
