Sortable is a visual approach to triumph, perfect for walkaround. The spectators can see the cards being mashed face-up into face-down.

A card is selected, and optionally signed. Then the deck is shuffled by both the magician AND the spectator. Next, the deck is mashed together face up into face down. It's clearly a mess.

Finally, with no suspicious moves, all the cards magically turn face up... except for the selected card.

No Culling
No Rough and Smooth
End Completely Clean

Simply by squaring up the cards, you can create order from chaos.

Sortable by Yvan Garmy Report this review

Well.....This one blew my mind. First cool thing....You don't need a table. Second.... It looks absolutely insane. The tutorial is very well explained, it's going to take a little work, but in all great magic that's a given. I can't wait to get this down and use it. That is when I'm allowed around humans again. In all seriousness, this a fantastic time to get things down. It's time to learn new things and perfect the old ones. When we get the go ahead to hit the streets again we will be polished and armed with amazement. This one will be in my set. Stay healthy and safe, God Bless.

Visual and stupendous Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on March 26th, 2020
When I watched the trailer I really thought that I have figured it out …. wrong. I was close but Yvan has made this effect much more simpler that you could imagine. When performing Sortable not only do your spectators have an active role in picking a card (any card not a force), shuffling the cards and actually seeing the cards ‘all messed up, face-up and face-down but they are treated to a visual minor miracle having the deck reassemble all one way with the exception of their chosen or signed card.

Can you do this with a borrowed deck, start clean, not add anything to the deck or have to employ any arts and crafts? Yes, yes, yes and yes. In the tutorial, I really liked the way Yvan did an overview of the effect so you get a basic taste of what actually happens followed by the teaching and detailed explanation of what you need to do. Whether you are a novice or a pro, if you can control a card, that is really the only ‘move’ you will need to know. Once you watch the tutorial a few times you will learn it very quickly. At the end of the video he demonstrates a walk-through along with another Magician performing it (never seen this before) to again show everything that needs to be done. For some reason the background music gets a little loud at times but not to worry, a little distracting but you can still clearly hear all the instructions.

There is some very minor clean-up to do at the end but not needed if you save this for your finale trick and move on. Great for parlor or strolling in any environment as a table or surface is not needed.

I really like this one as many times when performing parlor magic at a private party, I normally include cards and ask the host to supply their deck if available. What a great effect to perform to prove that you are not using a ‘trick’ deck and just look like an expert and accomplished Wizard. This is a good buy!

Cons: "move" will take a little bit to get used to for some
Pros: Can be done with any deck, ends clean, almost self working, repeatable, no sleights, no gimmicks

To have a Triumph that is done completely in hands and at almost eye level is next level. The cards absolutely look disorganized and with a snap you get it all back in order. The cleanup won't always be necessary depending on the reaction, but it's super easy to do. Reset on this should be 30 seconds to a minute and you're ready to perform for the next person. Great instruction and walkthrough included, this is a gem.

Excellent and unique handling that’s worth the time to learn. Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on March 26th, 2020
Excellent and unique handling that’s worth the time to learn.
I start off by saying I don’t think that the video shows does justice to this affect. The cards definitely look even more mixed up when you see the demonstration shown during the teaching session. It’s a great way to do and in the hands try amp that looks sloppy and mixed in that there’s no way you could undo that mix so quickly in front of them.

It is important to note that this will take some To get down as smoothly as he does it in the video. Nothing super hard and knuckle busting, but he won’t be performing it into minutes after watching it unless you already have a really good car handling skills. But, I wouldn’t let that dissuade you from getting this. I can definitely see how great this will be in using a straw in a strolling gig as he does in the video.

If you enjoyed watching the trailer for this, you’ll definitely enjoy frying your spectators with it once you learn it. Highly recommended

Insanely good Triumph! Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on March 26th, 2020
This is such an incredible version of Triumph. Great for walk-around since no table is required and it is quickly reset. The teaching is clear & easy to follow. It will take a little bit of practice to make it perfect, but it is quite simple to perform.

What a winner! Thanks to Yvan Garmy for sharing this with us. I hope to see much more from him in the future.

Damn - GREAT! BUY IT - Do it in 2 minutes Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on March 27th, 2020
No gaffs. Any deck. Brilliant messy great wonderful easy handling! Let me be clear. Your 7-year-old can do this and fool doctors and attorneys with it. You won't figure it out on your own and you will love how to do it. Nothing to remember and no risk of failure. Surefire and frankly it is going in as my borrowed deck opener. Love it! Like 10/10 as a great concept and worker! YES!

This is Good Report this review

This is really clever. I'm old, so following the tutorial was a bit tricky, but rewatching it solved that problem. If you like Triumph I suspect you won't be disappointed with this.

A great new handling for triumph Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on March 26th, 2020
Triumph is one of my favorite plots. It’s one of the most memorable routines for your audience. This version has a few things going for it. It is very hands on, you can have multiple people shuffling the deck, it looks very haphazard, the deck looks like a complete mess, and you can do this routine without a table. I already have a table version of triumph that I love to perform, but I will be learning this routine also to be able to perform it in any situation. The moves aren’t too difficult, give this some practice and you will have a great handling of triumph.

Pros and cons, not for all Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on March 27th, 2020
First let me state that this is a really great "in the hands version" of 'Triumph' where the visuals are very, very convincing. Once you finally master and perfect the somewhat knacky moves taught, then you're able to go out and perform it. Yet, it's an effect that will take some serious practice before you do. It also requires some control (as well as minor sleight-of-hand). Therefore it is not an out-of-the-box "ready to perform" miracle. But if you're willing to put some real effort into learning it, then it becomes easier and easier. Not for me though, as I do prefer other versions of 'Triumph'.

It's work -- but worth it! Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on April 4th, 2020
A very clear, in=depth tutorial, and a good new way to do an old Dai Vernon effect. This requires some mid-level slight of hand and car manipulation skills and is unapologetic about it -- and I love that. I'm tired of "self-working" tricks. This will require some practice, but not a lifetime of it. Set aside 30 minutes a day and you'll master this in a week. And it's worth the investment of time.
