Watching the ad videos, I thoroughly enjoyed this trick and decided to buy it. The instructional
video did not disappoint. This is not a trick you will be able to perform immediately; it will
require a lot of practice to get down smoothly. Given my current sleight of hand skills (a bit above
beginner but not yet to intermediate), this trick is aspirational for me, but it seems like a
challenge worth trying to rise to. In my opinion, the sleights needed are intermediate to advanced.
Kyle's instruction is good and the camera angles are decent. He makes a reasonable attempt to
explain and demonstrate each of the several moves needed to do the full trick. If you are a
beginner, or slightly past beginner (like me), there is not enough explanation and demonstration to
teach you every move from scratch, though there IS enough to get you started practicing on each, and
Kyle gives the name of each move and points you to further resources for most. There is a lot going
on, and I think the amount of explanation is matched well with the cost of the download.

This is beyond advanced. It is not intermediate. I bet nobody but Kyle can actually do this trick
and get away with it. WAYYYY too many difficult moves. Penguin tell us when they are this hard!

First of all, the trick is not expensive and I would not call it a waste of money. However, the
demonstration of the trick at the bar is poor. There are multiple times where the spectator's head
is in the way or you can't get the angles of what just happened. That could definitely be improved
upon handmade cleaner.
The trick is difficult and will take a lot of work. At this point I
am not sure the effect is worth the time but will give it a fair shot.

Let me start buy saying this trick is hard! If you are right handed, it is even harder, that is
because lefties can hide what is needed easily and Kyle is a lefty. But fear not, Kyle will teach
you even if you are right handed. The sleights are tricky no matter what but if you really put
effort into it, then it will go smoothly. I practiced for about a week and got it down. The only
thing I do differently is a special move I created for the last bit to make the 3 appear.
Pros, can be done with any deck with standard faces.
Nothing to add or ditch.
visual, even in the mirror you will swear the pips are moving.
You'll learn a new sleight I
never knew about.
Cons, it is difficult, you won't get this done in five minutes.
you are a righty, get used to holding the deck in your left hand for a bit like I did.
super dry hands and fingers won't help in one of the sleights.
Overall I do enjoy the
trick. People love it too. The reactions from the pip moving are huge too. Thank you Kyle, you made
me want to practice this more than any trick I've gotten in years. Man, was the pay off huge at the

First of all, let me say this an amazing trick. Very visual! That being said, it's very difficult!
I've been practicing about two weeks and I'm still not ready to perform in front of people. But the
magic is so amazing once I master it, I know it'll be one I'll be performing every time.
Even practicing it my confidence is growing...
Put the work in and you'll be extremely
This even better than first love it
I watched Kyle perform this at the 2023 Magifest and it was absolutely amazing! I am practicing now
and it is very easy to learn, just takes a little practice. This trick is so sneaky! Looks great!
I've seen Kyle do this several times live and always loved the moving pip. As a left handed card guy
this took no effort for me to start learning. This effect is not for beginners and even experienced
magicians will need to put in work to be able to perform this. Overall I think this is a great
approach to the 2 card transpo and has all the elements of a moving pip card without needing any
gaffs. I love this. I'll do this and if you like the visual you should give it a chance. Some people
seem concerned that this won't work in real performance....I completely disagree. I know for a fact
it can be done and I've I've it done. Great job Kyle! As always I enjoy your releases.
Pip Sleek 2.0 is very nice. It's not one of those angle-y tricks that only works for the camera.
Kyle is good at explaining the trick without dwelling too long on anything, going into further
detail later, making it an easy watch. My only critique?
I don't see how this is an
improvement on Pip Sleek 1.0. The 1.0 version I found to have an easier handling and more clean
presentation, with only (apparently) two cards in the hands. I recommend you try both.
