Could someone please give me a review of this? I had never heard of this Magician but he has won the Magic Castle Strolling Olympics three straight times.

It may be something that I am interested in. Thanks.

The DVD is fantastic. It's been a long time since I viewed it but this is what I remember.

Haunted deck - Fantasic version of this great effect using the Jon Le Clair hook up
Cards accross - This is one you WILL do, I really enjoyed his take on this plot
Double colour change - Very visual magic
The credit card trick (using the Jon Le Clair hook up) - Shimshi's version of the hummer card - This is what you buy the DVD for. The whole routine builds very well. I perfomed this to a friend (and he has seen lots of my routines and he said this was the best thing he had EVER seen).

All in all this is one of the best DVD's I own (from a collections of over 100).

Yes, this DVD is also one of the best in my collections. Highly recommended, especially if you really interested in Hummer Card using credit cards. Shimshi's version in Hummer card IMO is the most ellegance and beautiful.

Thanks for your input. I love IT stuff and I am always looking for other routines with it. This DVD sounds like something else that I will have to add to my collection. I'm sure my wife will understand!

Highly recommend for those who want to learn and master effects using invisible thread. Shimshi's skill and great details about the hook ups, setup, maintainence, everything you need to know.

His valuable insight about show business should be leart by new peers of magic. He is definitely right about the price of a professional close up magic show.
Most memorable moment - with Maestro Juan Tamariz & Consuelo Lorgia in FISM Busan 2018.

Excellent handling, if you want visual street magic that will blow people away, this is it.

This is definitely worth buying Smile
His version of haunted deck is like "Spooked" but in table situation.

Shimshi is great and you see him doing it in live situation.
