The Cooler is a great idea that isn't nearly as bullet proof as the ad and glowing testimonials suggest. The actual handling on the table is fine, EXCEPT that you don't want the gimmick near a spectator or on display for long. Any spectator who looks at the card box for more than a few seconds will begin to wonder why it looks so strange. Am I being paranoid? Just a bit, but no amount of misdirection will compensate for a gimmick that looks less than innocent and a spectator who is extra inquisitive (we've all had them, right?) That said, I really like the in-the-hands deck switch. The gimmick is in play for just a few seconds and the switch happens on the offbeat and away from the table. I wish Christian had spent more time thinking about and explaining in-the-hand switches, as I believe this is a better use of the gimmick. Just my opinion, but based on performing professionally for corporate audiences for 30+ years. Cheers.

But it's an example of hiding in plain sight. They'd have to be pretty bored to pay that much attention to the card box unless attention was drawn to that area.
