The last two effects in this lesson are so uncanny and so bullet-proof that you will feel ashamed
that you spent so little money in order to learn them. The last method in particular, a bonus which
is not in Tarbell, is honestly unlike anything I have ever seen. I thought that in the last
twenty-some years of viewing and reading mentalism material that nothing would ever surprise me
again. This did. I can't imagine what Dan Harlan was thinking when he decided to release the method.
It's so good it's just wrong.

I went into watching this very skeptically. In fact, I almost skipped it. That would have been a
This is a great lesson. One of the key messages is that blindfold stunts should
stand on their own as good magic tricks even without using something to apparently obscure your
vision. Hence, the tricks taught are good on their own. I liked the couple of psychometry routines,
but also really liked the cards on board presentation.
The blindfold drive was
particularly wonderful, and I loved the "kidnapping hood" premise.
Finally, the last and
very modern method was just crazy great. Wow. Who knew? Dan did, and taught this effect which was
not included in the original books.

This is an excellent overview of X-Ray Eyes and Blindfold work. The gaffer's tape version of
Sightless Vision is worth the cost of the download, as is the instruction on the Blindfolded Drive.
The subtleties on Psychometry are also superb.
The only advice I would offer to anyone who
plans to build the gimmicked clipboards (or any clipboard, for that matter) is that to obtain the
clips, there's no need to buy a new clipboard, then drill out the clip in order to then install it
on the new board. Low profile clipboard clips are available for a few dollars online and will save
you some time and money.
Whether you've done blindfold work in the past, or are just
getting into it, you will not be disappointed with any aspect of this video or the PDF that

This is one of those things when you buy, you sort of hope it goes away and you get to keep it for
yourself - and it's ridiculously under priced. Another fantastic thing about this particular course
is, while a few blindfolds didn't work for me (the ones that did I've already started practicing
with), the routines that went along with them, DID work for me. Dan Harlan does a fantastic job
making sure the smallest nuances are covered.
once again, Dan brings it with a great utility. these blindfold techniques can be used in many
ways. and I have one in use already.
the IR stuff is mindblowing--worth its own
treatment! I'd expect a follow up featuring IR and alternate light magic soon!
I wasn't expecting much from this lesson, as I think audiences generally suspect that magicians can
see through 'blindfolds'. But all of the tricks here are still magic tricks without the blindfold --
they are themed around blindness instead of relying on it.
The velveteen cap trick is
substantially improved. The final trick is new, as far as I know, but it requires some crafting.
I just happened to be lucky enough to be in the audience for Dan's driving blindfolded trick.
Totally awesome! Very well crafted. This one trick alone is worth the cost. I just used a couple
of these tricks and greatly fooled everyone. They never will guess the secrete. Dan continues to
showcase his world class talents.
Excellent performances as always, nice variety of blind folds, even an in depth guide to making one
of your own. Well worth getting to be ready for that special bizarre or mentalist show.
Great magic. Dan is the man.
High quality as always for the series.
I don't think I'd be ballsy enough to do the
blindfold drive though.
