Congratulations! You are now the proud owner of Doc Eason's "Out to Dinner Clip." This elegant accessory allows you to perform effects based on the "Out to Lunch" principle while maintaining your image as a classy performer. Just follow the simple directions, and soon you too will be wowing them with style.
 
History: The "Out to Lunch" principle comes from the 1800s, and was originally applied to slates by spirit mediums. Often attributed to Bagshawe, it was actually William Larsen Sr. who first published a magic version with paper cards. His effect, "Finger Prints" can be found in the July 1923 issue of "The Jinx." Our literature is now littered with effects based on the simple principle of a half card covering a whole card in a stack.

Much better than using a broccoli band.

It's a brilliant idea and I love all the effects that are possible with this but my business cards are standard in size and they won't fit in the card clip. Severely disappointed, was really looking forward to doing "Business Cardiographic". Get some bigger clips and it'll be 5 out of 5.

I finally have the confidence to do more effects using this principle. It looks great, looks innocent, and it does what it does! Will be getting a couple more!

Looks very nice Report this review

The "Out to Lunch" principle is so versatile that it is almost a utility effect. It can be used for predictions, genii tricks, to enhance business card hand-outs, you name it. The Doc Eason Out to Dinner clip classes up this effect a lot. I must admit that I am one of those magicians who used to use a broccoli band. If "Out to Lunch" in any form is in your repertoire, you owe it to yourself to pick up this clip.

Great OTL Presentation Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on February 13th, 2013
I love utilizing 'Out To Lunch' routines/presentations. I've used rubber bands of various size and type and I've used a couple of other fairly expensive items on the market that were designed to be used specifically for executing OTL routines. But this Out To Dinner clip by Doc Eason is my favorite! It's elegant looking and so unobtrusive as to be above suspicion. Simple, elegant and perfectly designed. Talk about 'packs small, plays big'!

Now the technical stuff you need to know: If you care, it's made out of a metal that will stick to a magnet. It's silver/chrome in color and shiny. In the three years or so I've had mine, I have never had to polish it. It doesn't tarnish and doesn't chip. The clip is snug enough to hold even two or three standard business cards snugly and hasn't ever lost it's clip strength.
For optimal use, you'll want to use between 6 and 12 business cards of standard thickness. If you try to stick more than about 15 cards in the clip, you may find you have to wiggle/struggle to get them out of the clip. Keep the number under 15 for smooth, flawless, removal of a single card when you're ready.

If you already perform OTL, then you'll wonder why you didn't get this before. If you are new to, or interested in, performing OTL, this clip will spoil you and you'll refuse to use any other method/tool, (or if you try, you'll come back to this one).
One final word: This is the clip for OTL. It is not a 'trick', per se. It is a utility item designed to provide smooth and classy execution of the OTL principle. You should know what OTL is and you should have at least one routine in mind when you purchase this. If that is the case, then you absolutely cannot go wrong with Doc's Out To Dinner clip!

I love this gimmick. I have already started to use it with great success. I find that people don't question the gimmick at all. It looks great. Of course, the reactions depend on how you use the principle. I like to make something apparently pop out into their hands.
