I have purchased Copycat as soon as I've read the information that came thru e-mail. I have never jumped into an effect before, but there was something in it, besides the fact that it fooled Penn & Teller, that drew me to the purchase.

The effect couldn't be cleaner, simpler, more magical and practical.

But what made me write this review is the amazing care that David Parr has put into the explanation.

He is a down-to-earth, tender, disciplined, respectful and very well educated magician. And I say this because I have seen magicians every day of my life for thirty years now, and almost none of them have these desirable characteristics.

I have purchased hundreds of effects and DVD's and lectures, and I have very seldom seen someone so pleasant to "be with" during a lesson in magic. He not only says that he has performed the effects hundreds of times, it shows in his demeanor, and his tremendous care for little details, that I believe only professional magicians, and amateurs who really put deep thinking into their magic will appreciate.

The simplest props, the simplest preparation, the immediate reset, the clean procedure, the hands on for the spectator, the lack of need to talk or explain things, and so on.

Beautiful experience, great effect, many thumbs up for David Parr and Copycat.

Thank you, David, for such a charming offer to the magic fraternity.

Hi there. I'm not really good at slight of hand. Would that make a difference in this amazing trick?

The moves required are minimal. You should get this effect.

Indeed, there are no "sleights" to speak of in this effect. All of the "moves" required are easy to do even for beginners, so you should not have any trouble at all.

I haven’t bought it yet. However, i dont think you will need good eyesight since both the decks are examinable.

Marked decks are examinable but require good eyesight.....that's why I asked

You do not need good eyesight to perform this effect. When Parr performed on FU he left off the bit requiring good eyesight. It’s not needed.

Hi, just a little idea required, does it use double sided tape.
