"Looch completely fooled me with something that I already own...GREAT thinking my friend!" - Cody S. Fisher

"Looch lectured his Marked Card work to a room full of card magicians recently and fooled the pants off everyone there! He’s amazing!" - Steve Faulkner (Real Magic Review)

As a mentalist who has spent more time than most with a marked deck in his hands, I have always LOVED Looch's work in the space: his combination of logical, naturalistic procedures, simple, practical methods, and his intelligent, off-beat use of the marks makes his material second to none. I vividly recall seeing an early incarnation of his legendary Tracker at an intimate mentalism convention in the UK - at the point of the revelation I was convinced the routine was a ruse, since there was clearly no way it could have worked: not enough had happened, there was no room for the trick. And yet, of course, it hit, and hits every time. I've scoured the market for top tier material using a marked deck, and this is absolutely that. Recommended. - Phill Smith

"Wayne "Looch" Bolsover has been a friend of mine for a very long time. I truly admire him and his work. He represents to me a man who truly practices Mentalism the way it is meant to be presented. I have nothing but the highest praise for him, his creations and his performances." - Richard Osterlind

"Looch is one of the most creative people in our field. I am happy to call him a close friend and learn all his ideas." - Lior Manor

The traditional wisdom is that mind-reading and mentalism should never be mixed with playing cards. Enter Looch, a mind reader and mentalist from the UK who shatters that wisdom with Impulse.

Impulse is Looch’s approach to performing direct mind reading with a marked deck of playing cards. In this project, you will learn five professional routines along with all of the details and psychology that Looch uses to destroy his audiences. The routines require almost no sleight of hand and are designed so that even knowledgeable magicians will be unaware you are using a marked deck. If you have never worked with a marked deck before this project will give you the crash course you need to start wrecking audiences right away. If you are experienced with marked cards you will appreciate the layered principles and deeply fooling approach that Looch takes. This is Impulse by Looch.

Effects:

Body Language
A pseudo poker presentation in which the performer claims to be able to read the body language of their audience. The cards are mixed and shuffled by the audience. A card is freely selected, and then the performer reads the tells to name the card in a completely hands-off routine.

Pseudo Mem-Deck
The performer claims to be able to memorize an entire deck of cards in just a few seconds. The deck is genuinely shuffled by the audience, then a single unknown card is removed and placed face down on the table. The performer then glances at the deck for a few moments and then is able to say how many red and black cards are remaining in the deck, how many cards of the specific suit, and then the values, finally successfully naming the only card not in the deck which is the one selected at the very beginning of the effect.

Tracker
The deck is shuffled into a random order by your audience. A prediction is made on a business card and set in the open. The magician and the spectator deal cards in synchronicity, and eliminate cards while making the same actions. The cards are further eliminated in a free and fair procedure down to one card that matches the prediction made at the start.

Reaper
The performer gets a sense of two of their audience through a couple of innocuous questions and then proceeds to use that information to influence a series of choices. A prediction is made on the back of a business card and set aside. Cards are shuffled, dealt, and randomly chosen, one card for each spectator. The cards exactly match the predictions made by the performer.

The Dealer
In a demonstration of an audience member’s intuition, they are invited to freely name a random card. They shuffle the deck and then deal down through the cards and eliminating them until only one card remains. This extremely free routine feels totally random but his a diabolical system that makes it feel as casual as washing your hands.

So, you’ve got a great Penguin marked deck and you’re looking for some killer routines to do with them? Look no further. These are deceptive, engaging, layered routines by a top mentalist who has honed them to perfection in the field. Each one is gold to a working performer. The teaching is thorough with lots of professional tips and psychology along the way. Fantastic download!

Awesome Report this review

(This review is for Impulse by Looch)
This is a great product especially for the price. The routines are simple yet, direct and hard hitting with a simple tool most magicians/mentalists should have already at home. My personal favourite is the "Dealer" which is the more difficult of the the effects due to the boldness of the routine. Tracker/Reaper are also very similar to each other but are both hard hitting.

Overall a great buy

Fabulous mental card routines you WILL use FOR SURE ! Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on April 1st, 2020
Looch showed me The Reaper and The Dealer at Mind Summit in Germany a couple of years ago. We were a table of (semi) pro mentalists and were all deeply fooled. Looch generously shared the secrets, immediately. Since then, I have been performing The Reaper at each close-up performance and if DEEPLY shocks the audience. The Dealer is more sophisticated and I did not remember all explanations Looch provided back then, so I am very happy to have them on video now, and forever.

Frankly, at 19.95$ this is a f*ing crazy bargain. Just one of the routines is worth much more because, I guarantee, you will use them in your professional repertoire and freeze your audience with them. The other 3 routines are great too.

Technically, the video is very well made with various live shootings for each routine and the explanations by Looch are crystal clear.

well done Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on March 28th, 2020
I appreciated the fact that the video performances actually follow what is done in real life! I thought the teaching was clear. I loved the way some new approaches and subtle equivocation being blended together.
Ive started performing it and found that a fellow magician - who new the deck was marked, was still totally surprised and fool by Reaper!
thanks!!!

Excellent material Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on March 27th, 2020
If you have never used or had disain for using a marked deck this is something you should definitely check out. Very thought-provoking routines are explained in detail. It has definitely changed my mind about routinely using a marked deck. It gives you the ability to perform some stunning effects in seemingly impromptu situations. The Penguin marked deck is excellent as well as one of the least expensive on the market. If you don't have one get one ASAP.

Fantastic! Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on March 25th, 2020
If you don't think mentalists should use playing cards, Looch will surely change your mind. These are some of the best routines I have seen with a marked deck of playing cards. All five routines are very deceptive, brilliantly structured, and impossible to backtrack. Body Language, Pseudo Mem-Deck, Tracker, and Reaper are fairly easy to perform; I am eager to take them for a test drive. The Dealer is extremely bold and will require a good deal of practice; but it is probably the strongest routine on the download.

Looch is also a phenomenal teacher--clear, thorough, and engaging. He covers all of the different variables of each routine and shares a number of helpful psychological subtleties along the way.

In short, this is a first-rate project from a top-tier mentalist. I have purchased countless downloads from Penguin, and Impulse is, without a doubt, on my top five list. Don't miss out on this. Thank you, Penguin! And thank you, Looch!

DVD poorly structured Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on March 30th, 2020
The DVD has no structure at all: it just continues in one unbroken line from beginning to end. Absolutely no way to find any particular trick, or to find explanations rather than performances. I found this irritating enough that I gave up going through the DVD . . . and Looch is one of my favorite performer/creators.
