This is the most hard hitting effect you can possibly perform. I've been performing this for years
ever since it was first released, and years later it still gets the same reaction as it did back
then, and that is beyond astonishment. It hits the spectators so hard that they still talk about it
years later. The reactions have been anywhere from dead silence, to open mouthed, to screaming, to
cursing loudly, to blank staring at the cards, to smiles, and even crying.
react differently when they're truly astonished by something, and this trick does just that and so
much more for me. Depending on how you present this, you can either have the "magic word" out in
full view for everyone to see and reveal the climax that way, or you can put the written word away
in your pocket so that nobody knows the word except the spectator who wrote it and reveal it during
the climax that way. My strongest reactions have come when using names and telling the spectator to
think of someone important in their lives.
Using this persons name as your "magic word"
and revealing that name as the climax gets reactions out of this world. What I also love about this
trick is the pocket space. All you need to perform this miracle is the wallet, and the deck of
cards that come with it, and both fit comfortably in your pockets. This trick also resets very
quickly and will take approximately 10 seconds and you're ready to go again which makes this ideal
for strolling magic. This trick is also very durable if you take care of it and will last you a
I've had mine going on 7 years now and the deck is worn along with the wallet,
but both still work fine to this day. This has been my closer for my close-up shows for a long
time, because there's simply nowhere to go from here. You can't top this, it's just that good. In
all my years of owning this wonderful trick, Chop was the only trick to even come close to being my
closer instead of this, but even that trick failed to beat the deep astonishment reactions.
This is simply the best trick I've ever purchased in my career. For what this trick will give
you throughout your magic life, it's simply worth its weight in gold. If you don't have this
already, do your career a favor and get it.
