'FOCUS' is a set of twelve specially designed ‘ESP-style’ cards featuring geometric shapes and abstract symbols that will allow you to perform several different demonstrations of 'second sight' or 'direct mind reading'.

These demonstrations can involve one spectator or several and all are completely full-proof and inexplicable to a lay audience. The cards can be used very subtly and are compatible with several different principles so that you need never use the same method twice during a single performance.

But, the REAL secret of the 'FOCUS' cards will allow you to perform the most incredible, hands-off drawing duplication without ever so much as uttering a single word to your participant. With your back turned the participant may shuffle all twelve cards. They may choose to select a design, sight unseen, or to go through each design and settle on any one that they like. They will never say a single word or show the design to anyone else. They will hide their drawing AND all of the remaining cards so that there is literally NOTHING to see when you turn back to face them and yet, thanks to the cunning secret of the 'FOCUS' cards you will be able to duplicate their drawing.

There are no impressions. There is no peeking. There is no forcing. There are no limitations on their selection. There are no marks to help you - everything is out of sight - and yet you will still know, without fail, which of the designs they are thinking of. There's no other word for it - 'FOCUS' is INEXPLICABLE!

The 'FOCUS' cards are VERY EASY TO USE and are totally suitable for beginners and pro's alike. The included DVD will walk you through several different ways to use the 'FOCUS' cards and of course reveal all of the diabolical method behind the stunning drawing duplication phase.

Includes: DVD plus 12 specially designed FOCUS cards.

Imagine this. You hand a spectator 12 cards with different simple designs on them and instructions. You tell the spectator that you are going to the leave the room. After you do, they pick a card and follow the instructions for the drawing. A minute or so later, you come back into the room with the drawing duplicated. Nearly test conditions, perhaps? At no time do you touch the cards or what the spectator drew. (Heck, you don't even see the paper with the spectator's drawing.) No f****, sh****s, b*****, i**, wallet, p****, electronics, etc. You don't even have to be in the room when the spectator takes the cards. You can have someone else (not a stooge) give the cards to them. And since they are reading the instructions themselves, no l********* ploys or p************ subtleties are in play.

OK, so that's the advanced handling of Focus. The basic one uses a technique that's pretty standard as mentalism things go. The advanced one does not, and, I daresay, is a mentalist fooler. I'm really impressed. Dave Forrest thinks so far outside the box that he's in a totally different box in a different galaxy. Sure, it's a 1 in 12, limited-range drawing dupe, but so what? It fooled me badly. And no, the method is not like the 1 in 26 Osterlind's Design Duplication System. You have not seen this method before.

You get the design cards and an instructional DVD where Dave goes over the system and handling carefully. But once you have that "OMG! So that's how it's done!" moment, you will be able to come up with your own routines. This is strong mentalism--and my new go-to drawing dupe routine.
