After watching the above demo I purchased the trick but found that the mirror backs cause the cards to "stick" together when counting them into my hand. Does anyone have a solution to this? The trick looks awesome. Shame there is not as much mirror surface on the back of the cards as in the demo. Cost cutting from the manufacturers I guess.

I have an old Emerson & West packet trick by Ed Hollins called Flipped Out. It is a 4 card effect with multiple face & back changes. One back change is to mirror cards. The cards are white with a silver oval in the center. Unlike your mirror cards, the mirror finish is rather dull and not metallic shiny. It can reflect an image, but it is more of a dull look. It is not metallic like yours. I have never had a sticky problem. However, I did have a German effect by Bottcher that had multiple cube color changes. This was done by very thin (paper like) metallic magnetic plates. A magnet in a box could pick up 1 plate at a time. After a period of time, a stack of plates would stick together so the magnet would no longer pick up a single plate. Although I never tried, someone said to rub the plates with alcohol to remove the stickiness. I wound up selling so I don't know if that would work. Another possibility might be to buy some glue remover from a hardware store. Hope this helps.

Poof- I had been to a variety of craft stores looking for these ! Thx for sharing. Did not know DJT had them here.
Why call it common sense when it's so rare ?
