In a world where some of the strongest effects in mentalism are being done with high-end electronics, we need a hero to give us jaw-dropping reactions using only a pen and paper. David Regal is that hero. This spur of the moment mental effect allows you to produce a double prediction where you end totally clean.

The performer writes down a prediction and places it face down in the open before the effect even begins. Next the spectator draws whatever symbols they want on five other slips of paper then mix them up. The spectators then eliminate those down to just one. When the prediction is revealed it is not only of the symbol they picked but also the one they almost picked. It’s an impossible double prediction that was written before the trick started.

"Not This. This!" is a very clever routine that anyone can do. This truly impromptu routine is taught in-depth by David Regal. If you are looking for a direct prediction routine check out "Not This. This!"

A stronger addition to a classic principle Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on December 3rd, 2019
If you’re a seasoned magician you know how this works but David has some fantastic advice and additions to a classic principle that are very worth exploring. This is simple impromptu mentalist at it’s finest.

So GOOD & EZ Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on December 3rd, 2019
You can watch the video and perform this effect right away with business cards, index cards or for stage, card stock. The psychological subtleties and use of magicians choice are so well done that the ending prediction comes as a big surprise to your audience. I really like the way David Regal put this together. It is a great go to trick when you need an impromptu demonstration of your magician skills or as a planned effect in your show. Very nice and going in my repertoire.

This, Not This by David Regal Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on December 3rd, 2019
I want to start off by saying that David Regal is cool. He's interesting and spot on with his tutorials. This illusion is just the tip of the iceberg of what you are going to learn. You get the psychology and mechanics of something that can be used so many ways. David explains this so well, you can tell he's invested in teaching you something powerful. I will use this faithfully, it's perfect for involving your spectator and making them feel in charge. Love it !!!

Impromptu? Real Mentalism? Yes! Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on December 3rd, 2019
When I watched the trailer I said “no way?” It can be done impromptu anywhere, anytime with anything … paper, napkins, business cards, whatever. No set-up, preparation or gaffs to make, this is truly organic. This effect involves a principle that you probably already know but disguised in such a way that it is undetectable. The is no doubt at all in the spectators mind that they controlled the whole process. Also as seen, this is not a single prediction, it’s a double prediction, what are the odds of getting them both right … 100%

Another creative and unique effect from David regal, you will not be disappointed. If you were really going to read minds and predict the future, this is what it would look like. As always, David does an amazing job of teaching this effect. Words are so powerful and David teaches you exactly how how to use them to pull this off. There are so many variables possible and David runs through them all making the outcome of having 2 predictions look impossible.

You will love and have fun performing this effect and your spectators will love experiencing it. You can perform this again for other spectators with different outcomes. Great for parlor, at a party or strolling especially if people talk afterwards as they will have experienced different predications making this effect more unexplainable and inconceivable. A worthwhile buy.

Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on December 3rd, 2019
I enjoy impromptu magic in which any item can be used. This is taught with business cards, but honestly could be anything. Easily learned through great teaching. Simple to follow and you will be performing almost immediately .

TOO MUCH PROCESS Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on December 3rd, 2019
I'm sorry to say that I was bored out of my mind with this one. "Draw a symbol. Now write another. One more. Now a couple. Last one." Really? By the time he did his business and got to the prediction, I had to wake up to see it.

And that's a shame, because I normally love David Regal's work. But not this one.

Maybe This! Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on December 29th, 2019
While I don't think this is in no way a masterwork of the Regal one. It does lend itself well as a masterclass on a well known magical selection process. This selection process is relatively simplistic on the surface, but the Regal one forces us to examine this otherwise mundane process on a more cerebral level. This observation can be applied Not just to THIS, but to any trick LIKE THIS. I found more value in his thinking on THIS process, than I did in the trick itself. Considering the myriad of ways this principle can be executed the question becomes would I perform Not This. This!.....I don't know!....Maybe This!

Not so happy with the double prediction Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on December 9th, 2019
I do the Magicians Choice like Regal does in this one but with objects and I do it the right way, so I knew there would not be anything new for me to learn on Magicians Choice.

So I bought this for the double prediction. But I'm disapointed because it's not always that strong. It depends on the choices the spectator makes. It is not so good when they don't choose Circle and triangle together. And I think the reactions in that case are not based on the "not this" but only on the "this" prediction.

I will probably not use this one but the one I'm using now which I saw Oz Pearlman do with five objects. Much stronger because you start with just pushing one object and if it is the right one, you have a very strong prediction.

Not This. This! Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on February 1st, 2020
I know that I am in the minority here, but I did not like part of the description to the participant. From the participant's point of view, it felt very much like part of the direction was that I was being led down a particular road. I know what David was trying to do here, but part of this didn't work for me. I'm sorry David, I like a lot of your effects, but this one I believe is a little overrated.
