The classic force is generally regarded as the most natural and convincing of all card forces. Yet it is one of the least used. Why? Because people assume that it isn't 100% surefire and reliable.

Many struggle with the classic force because somewhere in the back of their mind they hear the little gremlins of self-doubt say, "What am I going to do if I MISS?!?"

This video is designed for all the people that want to use the classic force but worry about all the things that could go wrong. The "3 pillars of recovery" is a system covering all contingencies yet still allows you to force a card in the most casual and deceptive manner possible.


Each pillar deals with a different strategy of recovering from a situation where the spectator "takes the wrong card." You can mix and match these different strategies or you may find that one of them resonates so strongly with you that you don't need the others--and that's fine!

After working through the nearly 70 minutes of material you will be so comfortable and confident that you will begin to ACTUALLY USE the classic force! And there's no way to put a price on that... oh, wait, there is... $9.95.

Note: While the classic force itself is briefly covered, this video is really focused on all of the situations where things may not go exactly as planned... AND WHAT TO DO ABOUT THEM! For an in-depth look at the classic force itself, there are several resources to choose from, most notably Paul Green's DVD on the classic force.

Here's what some others have said:

"Steven Keyl's wonderful video on recovering from a "missed" Classic Force is great. I learned some new strategies and I know you will too. Having an arsenal of 'outs' will help you build your skills with the Classic Force. You can't go wrong adding this to your Classic Force knowledge base."
--Paul Green

"Steven Keyl has produced a video that should be watched by every magician who uses the Classic Force, or who is in the process of learning it. The recording runs for just over one hour, and is jam-packed with excellent information. Even if you have been using the Classic Force for years, I wager you will find something that you hadn't considered before. I certainly did. This is one of the most interesting and informative videos I have seen in a while."
--Peter Duffie

"If you're studying the Classic Force, watch Steve Keyl's tutorial and learn what to do when things don't go according to plan!"
--Lee Asher (CardStar)

"This is well worth the money for anyone lacking confidence in their CF. Some good outs provided for when you miss."
--Sean Giles

"I watched this today, and for me it was very good value, and puts together a very useful batch of Classic Force recovery strategies. Those who are reasonably well read on card tricks will probably already know the 'physical' solutions that Steven Keyl offers for when the force misses, but I certainly hadn't thought how they might serve in this situation. The sections on 'psychological' outs and on dealing with truculent spectators / participants are also worth listening to, he's clearly put a lot of thought into how to approach various potential difficulties, and into refining what he wants to say in the video."

After seeing this download I feel completely safe and serene in using the classic force. In the three pillars I found all the answers to my questions and doubts (and even more). Absolutely recommended for those who do not feel confident in using the classic force or want to have a 100% result thanks to the different outs explained in the video.

Good Advice for CF Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on April 24th, 2017
For those who have hesitated to use the Classic Force, including myself, this video offers excellent advice regards outs and ruses to make a 'second attempt.' Stephens rational is very good, and he's finally convinced me to CF 'from the bottom' rather than the top.

It is, after all, a battle of wits with the recalcitrant spectators that cause magi to dread this move. However, achieving mastery allows you to do the most convincing force possible. Recommended.

If you're looking for a way to be able to use the classic force as your only force then this is the download you want to get. It's cheap, yet is still over an hour, and honestly was much better than expected. I was expecting a few tips and tricks, but Steven gives idea after idea for the whole hour. So much great material for such a low price. Instant buy.

Do the classic force with confidence Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on April 8th, 2016
This is a very detailed download that gives solid, practical advice on how to recover if your classic force misses. Some of these ideas have been hinted at in other works on the classic force, or have appeared singly elsewhere, but I've never run across any CF instruction that digs anywhere near as deep on the topic of recovery. Keyl offers some nice tips on the CF itself at the beginning of the video, but the majority is devoted to different types of outs you can use following a miss. If you use or intend to use the classic force, don't overlook this gem. It's a complete toolbox on making the force work every time.
