Does anyone have this effect that could possibly review it? Thank you.

The Effect
You turn toward one of your spectators, make strong eye contact and ask, “Do you believe you have free will?” Whatever the answer, you gaze into her eyes for a moment and then sketch a prediction on a slip of paper. You fold it up, and ask her to place it in her pocket. Now you show your spectator five cards, each with a different “psychic symbol”. You instruct her to shuffle the cards behind her back and slip one of the five cards into a small envelope. Imagine the feeling she experiences as she pulls the paper out of her pocket, un-folds it, and finds that her free choice matches your prediction.

The spectator has a free choice. There is no way you could have seen her choice, let alone altered your prediction to match it.

What You Get:

The secret
Specially printed cards, envelopes, and detailed instructions
Everything you need to perform this high-impact feat of mentalism.

Manufacturer Says:
Accurately (and easily) predict a spectator's selection!

Q: Does it work every time?
A: Absolutely

Q: How long will it take me to master the effect?
A: Twenty Minutes.

Q: Does the spectator really have free choice?
A: Yes, really.

Q: Are there any tricky moves to master?
A: No, the cards do all the work.

Q: Are there any extra cards?
A: No. Only five cards are used. The spectator has free choice of any of them.

This can be found on the best of Jay Sankey vol 1. Might be worth in investing in the video rather than the trick.

I don't own either though so can't provide a review :bawl: :bawl: :bawl:

Actually, it's not on any of Jay's videos.

I just checked, and Prediction Impossible is on the very best of Jay Sankey vol. 1 DVD. Here is the list of tricks from L and L:

Diehard Opener: The opening card effect Jay ALWAYS does for real people!

Twice As Nice: Jay's super visual revamping of a pasteboard classic!

Identifying Features: Killer "in the hands" magic with a borrowed bill!

Forgery: The card routine that spawned an army of variations!

Erdnase Aces: The sneakiest application of the Erdnase color change ever!

Smuggler Aces: A super clean "open travelers!"

Prediction Impossible: As direct a card trick as you can imagine!

Mexican Jumping Coins: A "knuckle buster" worth every once of effort!

Stirring Silver: The ultimate effect with a spoon and borrowed ring!

Nest Egg: This organic "nest of boxes" effect even fools magicians!

Skin Deep: Jay's "pros only" two card transposition routine!

Just Joking: A sandwich effect featuring two outrageously original moves!

Stuck Up: A signed card impossibly appears between two stapled cards!

They are two different tricks just with the same name.
