I've been doing Twilight Angel's since it was first released. These new Mandolin cards are
beautiful. The angel 'wings' are larger and easier to see. You can even use the cards with a Rider
Back deck. No will notice the difference. All they will care about or remember is the feeling the
trick had on them, because they keep the signed angel card.

Sure it uses Mandolin cards, but just get a Mandolin deck. Not ideal to carry another deck, but
worth it. I'm shocked at the great response I get every time I perform this trick. It's just great,
especially if you really show a scratched off angel at the end, which I highly recommend you do.
I have the spectator use my knife to cut the deck to where it needs to be. The knife has a
mirror polished handle, which really makes sense as the spectator literally sees the angel being cut
off the card.

Thank You David Copperfield and David Blaine for never performing this trick on TV.
mere mortals to feel like you guys.
And of course thanks to the creator(s) of the effect
You really only need to carry a few of these cards in a pack, or keep two or three on you.
There's no reason why you can't use this more. Point is - it's not really a trick deck in which you
have to carry 52.
The visuals are stunning. You'll watch yourself do it and then believe you did
Doesn't get more conviction. And that's another reason this packs such a punch.
mirror (not included) does create something magical - it's unpredictable ?
It's right on the
line in the gimmick debate. - Is it a gimmick ?
Remember at they end they examine the card they
signed. It's the same card.
But yet so very different.
Not much to say about this. The cards are excellent quality mandolin-back twilight angel cards. 52
to be exact. Oh it also comes with 2 double backers (hell yes) and 2 joker cards with interesting
back design that can be used in a similar way as the TA cards.
The trick itself is very
easy to perform and gets incredible reactions, especially from the ladies. I ain't gonna lie, this
is now my go-to trick for picking someone up (next would be French Kiss).
I've done this
trick both with and without having a card signed. I recommend you ask your spectator to sign the
card and then give it to them afterwards. They will really keep it forever.
Beautiful as expected. For those who use regular bikes i suggest to buy Mandolin Back. Its not a
good idea to use Mandolin Angels mixed with bike deck. I Love The Effect & Always get good
Out of all the effects I perform THIS is the one everyone remembers. It's very simple to perform but
WOW the reactions are incredible!!! This gets my highest recommendation!!
This is an absolutely amazing trick. Every time I've done it for someone, they are in awe. It's
crazy how some of the simplest effects to perform have the strongest reactions. It is important to
note that this does not come with instructions for the trick. Those can be found in Paul Harris'
True Astonishment set. Totally worth it!
Also I was a little hesitant at first because it
only comes in Mandolin backs now that Bicycle won't make certain changes to their regular back.
However no one has ever noticed anything different.
I absolutely love this effect. Paul
Harris is a genius!
