Every mentalist needs ESP cards in their toolkit and now you can own one of the greatest ESP decks ever devised.

Eclipse is a secretly marked deck of 25 ESP cards (+ gaffs) meaning that YOU know which card your spectator is holding at any time by secretly glimpsing the marks on the back. But these marks are like NO other.

What use are marked cards if you can't see the marks?! This is a very real problem with the typical alternatives; Nothing looks more suspicious than a performer leaning in and closely squinting at the back of a selected card to figure out what it is. Eclipse is the answer; the marks are SO bold, you can literally identify a card a spectator is holding from the other side of the room!

Bold, yes. Obvious? HELL NO. The marks may be bold to you but remain INVISIBLE to the uninitiated. Spectators can freely handle the cards and even under close inspection will struggle to find the secret.

People will be CONVINCED you're psychic!

Eclipse is the brainchild of Dee Christopher, star of BBC Three's award winning Killer Magic television series. Having gone through hundreds of poor-quality ESP cards at gigs, Dee designed Eclipse to last a lifetime; The cards are printed on plastic stock to avoid degradation, so if they get grubby, simply wipe them clean. No more ordering a new pack for every gig you're booked for!

If we supplied your brand new Eclipse deck only with written instructions, it would be GREAT value for money. But we've gone one better (six better, to be precise).

When you purchase an Eclipse ESP deck, you will be granted exclusive access to an in-depth online video masterclass with the creator, Dee Christopher. The video will not only entrust you with the secrets to decode the markings, you'll be taught SIX impressive, hard-hitting effects that can be performed with your new-found knowledge.

What's more, the effects taught can be performed individually or strung together to create a full 25 minute mentalism act, ideal for both close up performances and larger parlor settings. Some of the effects utilize the secret marks, but many don't, equipping you with a multitude of methods to help make backtracking impossible for your audiences.

The effects include:

ESP Opener
A spectator freely names any ESP symbol and you reveal that you knew exactly which symbol they would choose ahead of time.

Sensor
A three-phase routine allowing you to "see" with your fingertips. Each phase increases in impossibility. With multiple methods in play, this powerful routine is impenetrable and everything is completely examinable at its conclusion.

Gambit ESP
Five face-down ESP cards are mixed on the tabletop by the spectator. The spectator drops an unread prediction on top of ANY card. The prediction is opened and is found to match the chosen symbol!

Serial Reveal
You predict the unique serial number on a spectator's borrowed banknote! This effect adds impressive variety to the act and gives you a perfect excuse to naturally use props (envelopes and pens) left on the table from earlier effects.

Distance
The entire deck of ESP cards is shuffled by the spectator and washed around the tabletop. At great distance, the performer can reveal each and every card the spectator selects. This effect CANNOT be replicated with any other ESP deck on the market!

ESP cards have become synonymous with mentalism ever since they were first used in the 1930s to test for psychic phenomena. The undeniable allure of the five simple shapes have earned them a place in popular culture and now it's your turn to do the alluring.

Join the ever-growing list of magicians and mentalists choosing Eclipse ESP cards over traditional alternatives.

Are you ready to look like a REAL psychic?

Upon opening the box, I knew where the marks were and was able to easily discern which mark was for which symbol. If you experience the same thing, don’t let that get you down. There are some ESP decks that, as I get older, are harder to read and no one wants to have to put on reading glasses to perform a trick…that telegraphs that something is up. I can read these in low light and from across the table without any reading glasses at all. And despite the markings being easily seen by the performer, I am confident that laypeople will not notice anything, regardless of how closely they examine these cards. By being able to tell what symbol is on which card at a very quick glance, and from a couple feet away, your spectators shouldn’t even think markings are involved.
I will say that I can see these easily from about five or six feet away at most. The across the room thing doesn’t work for me; though I don’t need to used them for anything like that. It may be an angle thing or lighting thing…so I’ll keep practicing at the distance reading. I should mention that I can also see these in very low light. I’m sitting in my living room with just the television on and I can still read these cards by just the light from the TV.
I performed with these the day after I received them and I couldn’t be happier with these cards.

These are made from plastic. They handle well and unlike other plastic ESP cards, are made in such a way that the images on them shouldn’t fade, scratch off or degrade with use. These should last you many years and using them in a restaurant or somewhere that condensation from a glass or something may be on the table, is not a problem. They give a satisfying ‘snap’ when turning them over a certain way. Very good quality.

You get five sets of ESP cards, (five cards each set - one of each symbol), a few gaff cards and a ‘DB’. They come in a plain, matte black box made of card stock. You also get over 2 hours of teaching. Several routines are provided and you can link them together to make an entire show.

The only thing I’d have liked to have seen with this set is the box be made from plastic, as well, because the box will wear out long before the cards will!

I have several decks of ESP cards, all in various sizes, including two made from plastic and one with a marking system I love…but Eclipse beats them all. All those other decks are going to collect dust. Eclipse just became my favorite ESP deck and it’s going with me everywhere I go!

And looking at the photos of the cards, already find where are differences at the back of the cards..but you must have a very good sense of observation.

ONE OF THE BEST ESP SET EVER... BUT DUDE YOU HAVE TO IMPROVE YOUR APPEARANCES :) Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on December 8th, 2021
GREAT SET. GOOD ROUTINES. ONE OF THE BEST ESP SET EVER.

ONE NOTE ON A SIDE: PLEASE ENGLISH MENTALISTS, PLEASE. YOU ALL DRESS, LOOK AND TALK THE SAME WAY. SAME HAT, SAME TATOOS, SAME SLOW (AND IN MY OPINION BORING) WAY OF TALKING. IT'S EMBARRASSING. YOU CAN BE COOL AND ROCK IN MANY MORE CLASSY AND DIFFERENT WAY. DON'T HAVE TO ALL DRESS THE SAME AND SOMETIMES LOOK LIKE A HOMELESS TO BE COOL. YOU DISRESPECT YOUR AUDIENCE AND LOOK RIDICULOUS AND DON'T HELP CLIENTS TO PAY AS MUCH AS YOU DESERVE. BUT COME ON GUYS... SHOULD I REALLY TELL YOU THESE THINGS?

BESIDE THAT, THIS IS A PHENOMENAL SET WITH GREAT TEACHINGS, I'LL DEFINITELY USE IT FROM NOW ON. RECOMMENDED TO EVERYONE.

Very Good Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on December 28th, 2021
I have several sets of marked ESP cards. The marking system in this is the best by a mile. With a little practice you will easily master these. EASY to see yet won't be detected by even the most eagle eyed layman. Nice routines provided in the tutorials. Great quality cards that will last. If you like this sort of magic, you will enjoy these.

The routines on this project are quite good. Nothing fantastic though.
The markings on the cards are so obvious though. I found them extremely quickly.
They make a point about how devious they are but it took my partner (a non magician) less than 10 seconds to firstly make the assumption that the routine used marked cards and then easily and accurately discover what they were.
Not massively impressed with this. Will be sticking to other marked cards.

Easiest to read ever! Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on January 18th, 2022
I own or have use... wait, let me count them... 6 other ESP decks. And without doubt, the Eclipse deck is the easiest to read. First, it is easily visible even at a distance (as man have noted) and in challenging lighting conditions. Second, you only need to glace at ONE place on the card back to get the read, unlike some decks that require you to look at 2 or more corners to figure out the marking. These replace both my Beyond ESP 2 and Tenyo ESP cards as my go to set.

The instruction videos are well shot, but the routines taught are, for the most part, are rather linear that amount to little more than looking at the back of a card and telling what its face is (which is, admittedly, an over simplification, but more or less accurate). The one exception is Lewis Le Val's take on the classic ESP matching routine to which he adds some nice personal touches.

But if your main interest is having ESP cards that you don't have to struggle to read in weak lighting or when you are not directly opposite or inches away from your participant, you should definitely give these a go.

At least one reviewer has remarked that the markings are too obvious. I personally don't find them obvious. And I have never challenged a non-magician to see if they can find the markings. Why would I. In any event, the key is in designing your routines. You shouldn't be using routines which cry out "Marked cards". If your spectators are suspecting the cards are marked in some way, the fault is not with the cards, but rather with the routine!

This is a brilliant project. From the design of the deck to the markings. The effects taught are in the main not difficult. Highly recommended
