I wanted to add an effect of this nature and in reading different reviews for a different item, I saw this listed as the "get this instead" product. I went to more than one review site of course and yes, this kept being listed as the "Instead".
It is a good choice. The trailer is accurate. It is simple, direct and only requires a standard move used in packet tricks. (I think they even mention in the ad.)It is simple to grasp and the video is brief but clear. They even provide a suggested second handling. The items supplied has one that will wear out eventually, but making a replacement is not hard IMHO.
Like any effect the more you practice and rehearse the better it will be. I have warmed to packet tricks as the miniaturization craze continues. "I have Just 4 cards....." seems to fit the short attention span of a generation who may actually not know what playing cards are.
It shipped quickly, was as advertised and has a nice impact. I like to miscall the cards and let the audience correct me. Helps hold attention is done with a smile.
The Greatest Packet 'Twisting' Illusion Ever! Report this review

Pros: 'Shock Twist' by Gary Jones is an easy to do absolutely gorgeous trick. I perform it a lot (Texas for often) and it never fails to totally amaze, plus it's very easy to do. You do however need to be at 'Elmsley' level in your card magic abilities, this trick is not self-working. The variation of the 'Elmsley' that Gary teaches you is great in itself.
Cons: It turned many of my other packet twisting tricks into dust collectors.

This is a very nice card trick. You get a cad production and a color change. Easy to do but you must know how to do an Elmsley Count. Excellent.

This is a really great little packet effect. It's easy to do, and your audience is always "shocked" with it. Worth every penny. Get it!
Brilliant packet trick that hits all the marks Report this review

I really can't imagine a better packet trick than this. The twisting phase is oh-so-clean. Then all of the cards turn face up at once - and again, it's very clean and magical. You can do that spread with one hand, unlike many similar effects. The changed backs is the real kicker, which pretty much erases any thought of backtracking or possible solutions. Then you can hold up all four card and spread them up and down at your fingertips. It's just beautiful. And at the end, you're totally reset. Plus, it's about as easy to do as any packet trick could be. Thank you, Gary Jones, for releasing this brilliant effect.

It's great to see that Gary has finally released this with a dvd, i got mine of a uk distributor several years ago and have used it to great effect. You really do end this trick exactly as you start it ,so reset is a simple case of putting the cards away. I would put this up there with Bannon's work in terms of the thinking,... that's a very good thing
