Big Blind Media has put out four DVDs entitled Ultimate Self Working Card Tricks, which consists of the following four videos:

Ultimate Self Working Card Tricks Vol 1 (2012)
Ultimate Self Working Card Tricks Vol 2 (2013)
Ultimate Self Working Card Tricks Vol 3 (2014)
Awesome Self Working Card Tricks (2015)

All the videos contain self-working card tricks and only self-working card tricks. I know that there's some strong material here, but I'm wondering how these four volumes compare.

Which is the best of the set? Which is the weakest? And what tricks that are included are your favourites?

I have the first 3. Haven't seen the last.

I prefer the first: all the tricks are decent, but it's pre-prefiguration that I actually use. The second was th weakest, IMHO. Not that it was bad, just the other two were so strong.

Of the tricks on the last one I'm familiar with: Automatic ace assembly and FTT are awesome.
