Man oh man, have I never been so happy about someone re-releasing an effect! This is identical (as
far as I know) to the Michael Skinner monte, which is AMAZING. Now, why am I happy about this being
Well, first off, I never had any problems understanding the manuscript that
came with the Skinner monte. However, the handling here is different (slightly) AND it comes with a
video download for easier learning, which is always a plus.
In addition, for 15 dollars,
you get some AMAZING quality gimmicks; 2 SETS OF THEM! This is a great value to any close-up worker
for an amazing effect.

I've owned this trick for quite some time now. You can master this trick in 5 minutes, and it gets
GREAT reactions. The only drawback is that only 2 of the 3 cards are examinable, but with a little
practice, you can switch them out effortlessly. Definitely worth the money.. best gimmick trick I

The trick is excellent. The tutorials, not so much. They need more detail about which cards are in
at each point. Even pausing constantly, I couldn't always follow.

The download video is excellent: well done, well explained, well demonstrated. My only
complaint...the included gaffed cards do not match the cards used in the demo. It's probably my
fault, but it was hard for me to follow the moves made on the video. I try to learn by matching the
moves seen, but since the cards are different, it was very difficult. I asked if I could buy the
same gaffed cards used, but those specific ones are, apparently, not available. If you are an
experienced card magician it probably wouldn't matter, but for me it was a deal breaker.

This is a strong monte and it is easy to do! I was trying to decide what monte to buy and I'm glad I
bought this one! Plus, it comes with 2 sets of monte Blue Back and Red back Bicycle cards. I always
show this trick to a lot of students in my school that I don't even know! I do think trick with
confidence knowing I won't mess up (with 15 minutes of practice, you will have this trick down!) I
know it is impossible for me to mess up this trick, plus you get the best reactions, and sometimes
wierd reactions, because spectators don't know what to expect! They keep telling me to do another
one and another one! They have no clue gaft cards even exist!

learn feature uses different gaff cards than then ones sent---not just different suits, which is no
problem, but the cards themselves are reversed
takes a while to learn the sequence because
of the constant interpretation needed for the video

People have said that the explanation for this trick was terrible, and I agree, It was. But Forget
those reviews and throw them out of the window because they have re-shoot the explanation and it is
great! It's a brilliant effect too and I highly recomend it to you all who like card tricks... In
fact, I recomend this to anyone who is into magic, whether you like coin magic, card magic, close-up
magic it doesn't matter, you'll love it, and it'll change the way you feel for cards effects
FOREVER! ADD TO CART!

if you are a fan of Skinners Ultimate Monte as I am, you may be thinking of expanding your routine
with some new moves demonstrated by Rick Lax. I'm thinking, same indexes, same red bike backs
awesome! SURPRISE !!!! Only after you watch the tutorial in the last moments of the explanation do
they tell you " you may not receive the same cards shown in the tutorial. in fact, they are the
exact opposite of the cards shown in the trailer. I got MONTE'D. Disapointed to say the least.

This has to be one of the best illusions I've seen in all my years of magic, you can effortlessly do
this routine time and time again without being caught, just do it as a third or fourth trick in your
routine and specs won't even care about examining the cards. 2 thumbs way way up!

This effect is so simple, yet it leaves spectators in shock! The trick takes very little practice
to perfect. If you carry a deck of cards around with you, then this is the perfect thing to get.
I showed this to a couple of people at my high school, and they could never figure it out.
Now they always ask me to "do that trick with the ace, two, and three."
I only gave it four
stars because once in a while someone will be able to figure it out if you're not careful, but that
shouldn't discourage you (I probably just had to practice a bit more).
Add to Cart right
away! You won't be disappointed!
