Thanks for the review, I'm really pleased it's your number 1 Haunted deck.

A lot of work went into making this really easy to do, it still amazes me how the gimmick produces the animation it does!!

Is the animation better than the Rasmus version?

I just got mine the other day. Nikki's review is spot on. I own Haunted 1.0 and 2.0, and I felt 2.0 was a vast improvement in the animation for slow/creeping animation. It just works perfectly "out of the box" as advertised. The only thing I've been struggling with is to get a proper delay before the haunting begins. Currently, when I use the gimmick, it works similar to David Jade's static in that the haunting begins as soon as I let go of the deck. I didn't have this problem working with 1.0, but I'm not sure why it's happening with 2.0.

That said, however, the animation is amazing and I couldn't be more pleased. If I had to give a rating, 9/10 now and it would be a 10/10 if I could figure out how to get a delay before the haunting. Maybe someone who owns it or Mark could PM me some tips here?

PM sent, no delay is quite an easy problem to solve.

Delay issue fixed - as promised 10/10 and with such a quick response about it, I'm a very happy customer. Haunted 2.0 really lives up to the hype, imo. Smile

This is a matter of opinion, it depends what you like the look of.

Haunted 2.0 is designed with four phases in mind:

The intial delay, the first twist or cut of the deck, the travel of the top half over to the left and finally the creeping out card at the end.

As this happens you get pauses and delays (which vary a bit each time)in the animation which add to the effect.

I obviosly think these phases build up the effect and make it even more impossible, quite often when the deck has cut everything can sit there for a few seconds before the card comes out which really hits hard the way it creeps out at the end.

The slow creeping card ending is the reel kicker with this version, as well as the delay and complete change of travel direction during the animation.

I'm glad you have the problem sorted, it was more of a "training" as I call it or bedding in issue with the gimmick, it is explained on the dvd and repeating this sorted the problem.

10/10 is a great vote for Haunted 2.0 I'm very pleased this is working as advertised for everyone.

I have been using Haunted 2 a great deal latety and is does receive some excellent responses. The timing seems to be a pressure issue I would suggest. It took me a little practice but I don't even think about it anymore. I struggled with the original Haunted, but this is great!

It's looks like real magic so give it the practice it deserves and you'll have a miracle on your hands. I highly recommend this.

And I must give praise to Mark for his excellent customer service. A dealer that cares!

Hi macc

You should be getting two dvd's with Haunted 2.0. One is for 2.0 and the other is the original Haunted dvd so you can see all the differences and improvements.

take care

Just 1 DVD, but 1 very, very good DVD, imo. Some new ideas in the new 2.0 DVD that I REALLY liked.

Only one dvd in mine. I was was expecting the original to be included and thought it would be on that dvd. No big deal.

Whoops. Supposed to be two dvd's...although most of you getting Haunted 2.0 probably already have the original. Will sort this out asap.

many thanks

How does this new version compare to the other one that's out there? Anyone have both? And I don't mean the original haunted.
