Well I'm waiting for mine today, I hope is as good as everybody says. I can't wait...My only question was if it always end up in a card in mouth routine, but I ordered it anyway so I guess I'll find out..

I bought ST and agree with the others that it is very clever and well made by Jon, however...I do have one small gripe. I bought it based on the on-line demo, which is ultra, ultra clean - I'm speaking of the whole card revelation part.

I don't want to give anything away, but the reality of the situation is that the on-line demo version (of the revelation of the card) cannot happen very often. The FFFF performance was the ideal scenario, and I assumed this was the typical performance, rather than the atypical (I'm being vague so I don't too much away). It can come very close, but not exactly - unless you have the ideal scenario.

I don't want to say the demo is misleading, but I was disappointed. I had a specific situation I wanted to use ST in, but couldn't.

Still, Jon has produced a real winner. I suppose my issue above isn't an issue with most performers as I don't think anyone has mentioned it before.

Hi Ron,

What was the specific situation? PLease PM me if you feel you would prefer.

As for the demo video, whatever happened at FFFF, that was going to be the video. However, if you look at it from an audience member's p.o.v., it would be the same thing. That's why I'm interested to know your own, personal scenario.


p.s. I am away from Sunday morning until Tuesday so apologies if I do not reply straight away

I've got no problem with the demo. No matter which card is chosen, the audience will see exactly what is on the demo.

You've got a winner here, Jon. Thanks!!!

Did this last Saturday at birthday party for about 50 people. I used it as a opener and it was great! I did have some people in the back of the room have trouble seeing the cards, but I should have held it up higher to make it more visible. I didn't have the ideal scenario, seldom do, but doesn't really matter, the effect is the same. Thanks Jon!

Jon's given me a few sneak previews of the stage version and it is going to be very nice..... I may even have to get one myself.

Will the stage version be a jumbo card from your mouth?
Never criticize someone else until you have walked a mile in their shoes. Then, when you do criticize them, you will be a mile away from them and you will have their shoes.

I really like this effect, I just need to practice "getting the right card" more before I use it.
I am really interested in a stage version.
* "May your life be like toliet paper..long and useful."
* "If the shoe fits, get another one just like it."
* "Use the talents you have, for the woods would be a very silent place if only the best birds sang!"

Would this trick work in a surrounded parlor situation ?
if there was to be an index of some sort with the few shown card at the back of the book/ipad (to be switched against the mouthed one)...
or all the dirty work is well hidden ?
thanks for the help on this potential purchase.
