"This is the type of INSANE visual that wins world magic championships." -Maxwell Murphy

"Straight from my FISM award winning act" -Rick Merrill

You won't believe your eyes. A FISM Grand Prix Champion shares close-up magic secrets for the first time.

There are no words to describe how eye-popping Rick Merrill's CHAMP is. You just feel like a punching bag by the time it's done. It's a delight to watch, and once you learn it you'll be able to perform it anywhere you see a pen and a coin.

PROFESSIONALS: If you could practice and master only one close-up routine, this one is as good as it gets. Period. Wish I had more to say, I don't.. it's that good.

Not good for close- up or for righties. Not that you can't easy to preform, it is for stage only.

Amazing but you need practice. Report this review

I have practiced this for about 4 hours still I haven't got it perfect. Every once in awhile show angles. It is a very cool effect once you put in at least 5 hours of work.

Pros: very visual comma comes with an extra effect usually a Sharpie and a coin. Which is equally as good as the original effect.

Cons: you need to practice this a lot to get the angles correct.

Not perfect, but scratches the sleight-of-hand itch Report this review

(This review is for Champ by Rick Merrill)
There's a lot of fine details (especially at the crucial phase that involves the open-hands display) that Merrill skips or glosses over. Fortunately, the video production quality is good enough to allow someone really determined like me to reverse-engineer the things he doesn't explain, like the angle to hold the "holdout," the miming and covering actions, etc.

Very clever indeed! Report this review

This is a very convincing total vanish of a sharpie marker, or any similar object. Done correct with angles covered it will blow the socks off of anyone you meet. It can be done in short sleeves so it looks totally fair, but there is something you will have to put on in order to do the full vanish.

It uses a tool you have on you anyway, is pretty simple to perform, and looks amazing.

The moves are for the advanced sleight of hand artist...while the moves themselves are simple you must feel very comfortable with sleight of hand to make this look natural. I personally love this routine, and have never performed it myself. It is definitely fun to practice but if you do not put in the time its not worth performing

Real Magic From Almost Nothing Report this review

Like everyone else, when I first saw Rick perform his award winning routine I experienced a few of those rare moments of real magic we want for our audiences.

Now we can too. Get this, learn it and be ready at any time any place to create wonder.

Brilliant stuff, beautifully constructed and perfectly explained. This is Gold!

AMAZING Report this review

(This review is for Champ by Rick Merrill)
LOVE this effect...definitely needs a lot of practice for the most part...just to keep your angles good! But other then that Phenomenal reactions! But you must perform this little gem dead on with your spectator. On stage you may have a bit more wiggle room, All I can say is GET IT! Practice It! You’ll LOVE It!!!

I believe I read all of the reviews before I purchased Champ and they all were helpful. If you've done the same and are inclined to buy it, you should. Yes, it has limitations. But, taking those in to consideration, it is brilliant and the price is right!
For me, it won't be a stand alone effect. But it is something I will do often when the circumstances are right.

Straight on vanish Report this review

So very nice to see that Rick put this out. As long as your spectators are mostly in front of you it looks great. Lots of effects have angle issues but this is a fun quick effect to do any time.
