In this Larry Jennings miracle, things start to get weird quickly, as one card MELTS through another. It looks SO GOOD it'll fool your brain EVEN IF YOU KNOW HOW IT WORKS.

And the best part? The gimmick does almost all the work! Seriously, if you can hold 3 cards, you can perform this trick. And that brings us to the other great thing about this trick, you don't have to waste any time having a card chosen, carrying a deck OR EVEN TALKING. When you perform the first penetration, jaws will drop and ALL attention will be on you.

When you're done, you can CLEANLY show all 3 cards (there are only 3 cards used) and your audience will be too stunned to speak. It looks like a special effect!

What You Get

The instructional video for this trick has no fluff and is one of the shortest we've ever produced. There's a full, uncut live performance at a cafe, and then Michael goes through the method repeatedly with clear teaching cards. Even with all of this, the run time is only just over 5 minutes. After watching, please let us know how you like this format.

Practically Perfect Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on January 15th, 2018
A killer for the price, this effect requires only the most basic of skills and tools to create the gimmick (an 8 year-old could make one), and only the most basic of sleight of hand. It can be performed surrounded, you can learn it in 5 minutes and master it in less than 30 minutes. The cards aren't examinable at the end, but the illusion is so good, no one is going to ask to see them.

I still remember this trick after 30 years Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on January 15th, 2018
Many years ago I was visiting a magic shop and the demo guy showed me this trick. He showed me a lot of other stuff and I couldn't tell you what it was if my life was on the line. The one thing I remember was this trick. It just looked so impossible.
If you want to do something that your spectators (particularly the sharp ones) will be bothered by forever, this is the piece.
The teaching is, of course, fantastic but the effect is the thing. I don't think that there is a more visual piece of card magic. The spectator actually sees one card melt through another.
Just buy it, work on it, and you will create memories. After all, isn't that what we do? I cannot recommend tis any more highly.

Simple but effective Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on January 15th, 2018
This is a dead simple trick with a dead simple gimmick. The instruction by Michael Ammar is very brief because it doesn't need to be any longer. This isn't a "blow away the room" effect, but rather a subtle little smile-maker that you can do while walking around or as a transitional effect between big hits. It's also a quick effect that can be picked up easily by beginners, probably with just a bit of practice to get the positioning and use of the gimmick down. Highly recommended addition to anybody's card magic repertoire.

Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on January 15th, 2018
Beautiful teaching of a beautiful illusion! I'd prefer to see and hear more real-world performances and tips with this illusion. I'll have to try it out to see how to manage the audience to not want to see the cards since there is a gimmick involved.

Really Worth Getting This Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on January 15th, 2018
I love this effect. We often discard the jokers and do ur stuff. Here you can do a miracle at any time with those discarded jokers. The illusion is perfect. About 5 minutes of practice and you have it down. Keep it in a wallet if you want like a packet trick but I like this as an afterthought with the jokers pulled from the deck earlier in a card trick set.

Magic Right Before Your Eyes Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on January 15th, 2018
This is one of those tricks that look so amazing you would buy just to see how its done, but the bonus for this one is its fun to do.

There are several other things I really like about this trick (beside the fact that it looks amazing and just like real magic):

1.) The gimmick is simple - a few seconds to make it
2.) No angles to worry about
3.) You can do it again and again with no setup in between
4.) No sleights

All pros for this one, no cons.

I'll keep this one for a carry around trick. Definitely thumbs up

Low Production Quality & No Teaching on the Handling Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on January 15th, 2018
The Production Quality is very low and they don't show the handling of the cards. 5 Less than 2 min explanation. Its not close up explanation its very far away.

Close Up Illusion Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on January 15th, 2018
How sweet is this !!! This illusion is a beautiful close up, quick hitter. There is a gimmick and it's doable in about 4 seconds. This is something that you can carry around and nail somebody with before they can say "What the Heck." Work with the manipulation for a little bit and then go drive people nuts.

Nice effect in your pocket Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on January 19th, 2018
The Jennings effect is visual and practical.
You get what you see.

I only wish that more time was spent for the explanation.
Over shoulder shots, close-up shots of the gimmick.

If you already perform “I hate David Copperfield“ by Geoff Williams you get nothing new here. If you like what you see and have no clue - get it.
Its also nice to know the important subtleties.

3 Stars because of the upgradable tutorial.
The actual price of around 5$ is ok - i wouldnt pay 10$ for it.
