I have had three sent to me. Some cards R/S, some not and not on the backs and poorly done. Incredibly poor quality control



If I had 3 sets not correct I would ask for a refund or they should throw something in for the inconvenience.

Ordered mine on the 16th Dec and still waiting but considering how bad they're coming out, I'm rather glad to be expecting a faultless one

Maybe his will help guys.

I got mine a few days ago.. and right out of the box as assembled it didn't seem to work too well
I let them rest in the box for a day or two after the proper mixture and they seem to be fine now... maybe let them sit overnight first loosely separating them then assembling them and maybe you will have a favorable outcome. I hadn't gotten too far in the instructions yet but I think I am functional.

My deck doesn't work properly and four of the cards are stuck together and if I pull them apart they will tear. Looks like it was put together by pre-school kids. Who is the manufacturer?

What happens when you don’t give them long enough to dry.

Yep. I've r****ed cards before and didn't give them apple time to dry and they became stuck together and damaged when I attempted to peel them apart. Patience and ample drying time are a must prior to reassembling the deck.

I made my own but martysh is so right if you leave them in the box for a couple of days after assembly they seem to work perfectly . A little tip I found at least with any ID decks etc is between performances ie when left at home is to keep the deck in a metal card box guard as it really helps to make them work as they should when you use them Tarik 🙂

My deck works fine but it doesn't include a joker, which is specifically referred to in the instructions for one of the effects?

I received mine and a few of the cards weren't roughed adequately. I should be able to remedy this myself but certainly better quality control should be expected. As far as the effect itself goes, I expect it to play pretty well. I'm not sure if this is necessarily an improvement over the original because the big surprise at the end is lost. However, this is more practical for many reasons including not needing a table to spread the cards on. IMO it just feels like a different effect entirely.

"First time version of this classic"?

I wouldn't call this an Out of this world.
Dani da Ortiz has already a "true" face up Out of this world, it's brilliant. "Flashback".
Call this what it is - spectator predictions.

I'm sorry I don't like flashback at all.Way too much card handling.

I do like this effect but I do much prefer a face down version which can be done with this methodology Tarik 🙂

MOM replaced my deck no problem and the new one is fine. Thanks to Mark at MOM. Importance of a good dealer. All in all, yeah, expensive, but I will use it and I have paid more for something that sits at the back of a drawer so no major complaints here.

Just got my replacement deck and the guy at the shop personally found a 'good one' set it up for performance mode, tested it. I'm a happy guy now !!

I AM going to make up my own deck when I'm feeling ambitious ;-)

I agree Mandy the face down version is far better and unbelievable at the finish Tarik 🙂

Shame that such a promising trick as shown in that "Hollywood" blockbuster trailer appears to have been let down by poor quality control! After reading many of these posts, I've decided to skip this one and stay with the original that I still love performing. As many of us know who have made those "special" decks in the past ourselves, if its not applied correctly, or done in a rush, the problems encountered here are of no surprise! As I said, shame, as its looks outstanding when demo'ed.
