Great. I give it a 9 1/2 out of 10.

Heavyweight Boxing
Greg does a great job of teaching this, going over the moves a few times each. The only thing I didn't like was that the gimmick could have been explained better.

Phoenix Split
Again, this is taught well. Greg makes it very clear on how to split the first card, but the second is confusing. I can't say anything about the Jack production, because I do not do that part. Phoenix Split is one of my favorite effects in the DVD.


Reset with a Hook
I love this effect. Everything is explained very well. Reset with a Hook is on of my favorite effects on the DVD.

Boomerang Card of Death
VERY hard. I can't do it. It could have been explained better.

Boxspring
This is taught very well. The only problem is doing the spring/squeeze to make the card look like it came out of the box, it is not explained too well.

Joke in the Box
I really like the idea of a card under glass effect without the cards getting wet. It is taught well. I really like the ending, and the scoop change.

G-Force
I really like this one too. I like the force that is taught when you cut packets into the spectator's hand. The two card transposition is also very cool.

Revalation in Spades
As Greg says, this one is a real knuckle-buster. The good thing is that you can add in your own moves, which is what I did. RIS is one of my favorite effects on the DVD.

Best Effects (my opinion)
1. Revalation in Spades
2. Reset with a Hook
3. Phoenix Split

Rating: 9 1/2 out of 10

Good review, I think to fix the problems you were encountering, you just have to practice a little more... specially the phoenix split... its not a hard move, just knacky

I enjoyed your review. What I particularly like about this set of magic by Mr. Wilson is that while I don't do any of the routines shown on the dvd, each one is filled with wonderful moves/presentational ideas, etc. I have never had a dvd where I took as much from it, and yet never perform any of the routines.

I agree, although I use 1 or 2 of the routines.
