Looking for a card force in which

1. Spectator merely peeks the card, e.g. the card is not removed from deck.
2. Cards are never separated during the force, e.g. a dribble force would allow the cards to move independently during the dribble and a classic force would allow the cards to separate on horizontal planes
3. Force is 100% with no room for error; willing to use gaffs that are not discoverable by spectator

Around the :58 mark, you have what I believe to be a force that could meet the requirements:

The best source to begin researching work on the Peek Force is Ed Marlo.

And if you want to go gaffed, the simplest route is the Svengali principle.

I don't think Ricky Jay utilize a force in your video, he control the choice then peek at it when he fan the card.

A Peek force would work well, but the simplest would be a simple riffle force.

I agree with Claudio: seems like the riffle force would be the easiest....

Ruppert is right, the card in the video is not forced. Break, step, fan, glimpse. The glimpse is too obvious because there is a break in the rhythm of the overall handling. Too brisky.

Since I don't know the reason behind the non-separation of the cards, this may not apply, but a classic force does not have to make you separate anything.

It could be done with the card touched...the force card jogged forward...the spread of cards raised to spectator so he can see the "selection"....and the cards lowered and the selection slid back into the other words, nothing has to be separated or removed.

I use a force of the bottom card from a thumb riffle of the pack. You do separate your hands slightly at the exact point they say stop to show them their card by turning your right hand slightly towards them so they can see/peek their selection. It does not leave the deck and you then immediately replace the top half of the deck and hand them the pack to shuffle, etc. First card force I ever learned as a child so it is super simple, yet quite deceptive. It might not meet your exact requirements but does not use a gimmick, and you can use any deck.
