This is a great effect that I've seen done close up and on stage. I even had the priviledge of
seeing Jason Latimer do it for a couple thousand people as well as Martin Lewis do this for a
handful of magicians. It is very visual, animated magic. The first thought in the spectators mind
is that it some device (and it is) but what freaks people is the ability to tear off the drawing and
hand out to the spectator. Be careful not to turn the pad sideways as I have seen that happen and
it gives awy

This trick is excellent. It has everything: it is a strong rarely seen effect, it has built-in drama
and the spectator gets a souvenir she can examine. I have used this trick many times and it always
creates a lasting memory. I also have the previous version of this trick and the signature edition
is far superior. Highly recommended.

What else can be said about this? An effect performed on the Cooperfield special. It absolutely
blows the minds of spectators that it can be ripped out and handed out. the animation is so cool and
can be adapted in many different ways. Well worth the price.

I'm giving this 3 stars because it's a great effect. Not very happy with this version though,
compared to the old model. The pad is about half the size that it used to be. It's probably great
for parlor or living rooms, but unfortunately too small for most of my audiences. I guess I'm going
to buy his DVD and try to build my own...
Additionally, potential buyers of this effect
should be aware that it also doesn't come with a template anymore, but you will need to construct
part of your own refills out of plain blank pages that need to be bought extra. The DVD shows you
how to use the template which is no longer included which is strange.
This is still a great
effect, but in it's current incarnation, it's not really not, in my opinion, worth getting pre-made
anymore. Just by Martin's DVD and make it yourself to your own specifications. The card rise action
itself is a bit smoother than it used to be, but this is definitely not worth all the trade-offs. So
much for "new and improved".

Love this when you look at peoples faces after the performance. First is shock then an explosion of
applause you cannot get a better reaction from this master piece jaw dropping
Love this trick easy to do and you won't regret getting this. You will use this over and over. Yes
it's not for close up, more for stage or parlor great reactions my go to finish.
Great trick, I added look don't see, funny patter and you could hear the ooos & Ahhs
