Mine arrived yesterday via a carrier pigeon with tiny coins taped over his eyes and wearing a blindfold.

I got it today and gave it a first read through. Very good and strong. The method is something I very much appreciate and was relieved it wasn't some others people may suspect and see through. Very happy with the purchase.

This is very very good, as is one of the supplementary routines given. But it is a strictly limited release and in this instance believe it should stay that way.

Had the chance to test run this at the afterglow of several stage shows now and must say that I am very impressed. Upon reading it I was immediately convinced by the method and it's beautiful simplicity, as well as the very straightforward effect structure.
In performance the Three Pellet Test turned out to play even stronger than I expected, it was still more deceptive than I anticipated and - how great is that! - it is SO MUCH FUN to perform! Loving it. My prediction is that this is one I'll be using over and over again in more intimate settings. Thanks Ted!

Marc Sky is his business partner. Ted Karmilovich is his real name.

This effect is truly and classically brilliant.

The method is both Ted Simple and diabolically constructed.

It is endlessly adaptable to a number of routines that are only limited by your imagination and creativity.

There are syncronicity, influence and precognition applications. And more.

Second only to Target Number, this is the best...most practical...audience tested effect Ted has ever done.

I love the adaptability, the utter simplicity of this effect. I even see some potential for stage and parlour shows.

Finally: knowing Ted as I do...when he says 100 copies he means 100 copies. Period. The guy has complete integrity.

Get this or skip it. It’s up to you. I hardly buy anything these days but I would have missed a true gem if I had let this sell out without getting a copy of my own.

A solid 5.5 billets out of 5 from me. A true classic.

What: The Three Pellet Test
Author: Ted Karmilovich

What is it: The Three Pellet Test is a totally impromptu (if you want it to be) demonstration between the performer and a participant. Seeing as to how the only items needed are some slips of paper and pen or pencil to write with, I would also call this a propless demonstration as well, others may disagree. The demonstration goes like this, some words are written on the slips of paper, which are then crumpled into little pellets. The performer and the participant each take one pellet out of a choice of three and they match each other! So do the second ones! And the third! As it is written the three pellet test is a 3 phase routine, and this is just the first phase. However, you could actually get away with doing more than just 3 phases if your audience is properly seasoned for the cooking.

Seriously, sometimes you find a routine that just kills, and I mean completely kills yet when you find out the methods behind it you sit back and say “Really? That’s all there was to it? How does THIS kill so much?” Well, this isn’t one of those routines. No, this is one of those routines that will make you cuss upon learning the how. This routine has fooled some of the best and brightest minds in our sector of magical performance art. Do not let it fool you. While I have no yet had an opportunity to perform this yet, I see the great potential within it and I can see just how easily you can hook your audience with this. Mr. Karmilovich has given the mentalism community one of the most devious and insanely bold routines that I’ve laid eyes on. Seriously, he must clank when he walks.

Who is the audience: This routine will work with any number of people from one up to a parlor sized room. This is not suitable for stage performance without some MAJOR renovations and reworking.

All of this has been an opinion. It is only an opinion.
