A new release from incredible Magician Paul Vigil, anyone have this yet? Sounds interesting...


Quote:

Many have seen me perform this and have pleaded for her secrets...

This is something I have kept under wraps for the last few years.

It is available for $15 via paypal. paulvigil@hotmail.com

Here is the effect description...

A spectator’s deck is borrowed and shuffled. The spectator and magician both think of cards. This is a completely free choice. The spectator is asked to read the magician’s mind and remove the card they feel is being concentrated upon. The magician does the same. With no questions asked the magician finds the spectator’s card – and the spectator finds the magician’s!

And here is what the pros are saying...

“One of the most baffling card effects I have ever experienced! Now it can be in your tool kit.” – Jeff McBride


“I spend my life traveling around and believe me I have seen my share of card locations. I have never and I mean never, been so fooled by any other card location...EVER. When Paul finally got tired of me begging to know the method I was even more impressed at how clever it really was.” – Chris Kenner


"The effect and procedure are clear and well structured; imbued with mystery and impact. Your nuanced mix of methods is more than just clever combination or variation. Diplopia matters." – Michael Weber


“Impeccable.” – Paul Harris


“Paul Vigil is a great thinker of magic. He understands its intricacies and his effect called Diplopia is a great example. From a spectator’s view, I was thoroughly fooled and entertained. From a magician’s point of view, all of the necessary psychological ploys and subtle subterfuges are contained within and structured appropriately for maximum response. Diplopia is strong magic.” – Armando Lucero


"When Paul calls and tells me that he's got something cool to talk about, I listen. Diplopia is a great example of some of the purest work a mentalist can achieve with a borrowed deck - brought to you by none other than Paul Vigil!" – Alain Nu


“Devilishly Deceiving.” – Gazzo


"Paul Vigil has fooled me many, many times. Never however has he fooled me as badly as with this effect. It’s as clean as you could hope for and even more devious than you could imagine in your wildest dreams. It’s a perfect example of construction that elevates a card routine into strong, impactful mentalism. I can not recommend this highly enough as I simply do not think the English language contains words of high enough praise." – Luke Jermay


“Stunning! When Paul Vigil showed this to me my mouth dropped open.” – Eugene Burger


“Diplopia is an expert level routine taught to you with expert level instructions that will give you a glimpse into the mind of an expert working professional. Make sure you take the time to learn this one or someone will certainly fool you with it. Diplopia is a totally practical, totally baffling routine that you should add to your repertoire...I did!” – Bob Kohler


"Brilliant is what I said when Paul Vigil shared this with me. Paul has a way of elevating the presentation and delivery of an effect to levels that you would swear he is doing real magic. There is no exception here! This feels like the real thing." – J. Aaron DeLong


"Paul has smoothed out all the kinks and created a pure mind reading experience. Your audience will need a masseuse to work out the knots in their brains." – Raj Madhok


It is not for the beginner. This will take some serious work, but look at the quotes; it's worth it.

Hope to hear from a few of you,

V

Chris,

I have been doing this effect for a while now and I am very excited for Paul, but extremely sad he is releasing it to the public. This is a great effect. I can't say enough about how good this effect feels to do to people.

Cheers,

Aaron DeLong

Wow! A lot of praise for this routine. Even the people over at the Penny For Your Thoughts forum are giving this very high recommendations. If only I've got some funds, I would've jumped in and bought this straight away. I'm sure it won't disappoint..

This effect is DYNAMITE! I was so sure I was going to be disapointed, it just sounded too good to be true. Let me tell you - it isn't! Does exactly what it says on the tin and I doubt if this effect could look any cleaner, or any more impossible than it does with this method.

If this doesn't become a classic - something is VERY wrong!

Dave.

I don't get it, the description is very vague.
The spectator finds the magicians card and vice versa. Are those cards written down so everything can be checked afterwards ?
Or does the magician just say: ' indeed, that's my card' en we must all believe that he's telling the truth.

Nothing is written down. The spectator tries to read your mind. The card that the spectator thinks you (the magician/mentalist) are thinking of is removed from the deck by the spectator and placed into his/her pocket BEFORE you tell them what card you're thinking of - and the spectator gets it right - no joke!

Rick makes a good point. Some say that cards and mentalism don't mix. 'Diplopia' is surely a real thorn in the side of that argument!

Best thing I've bought in years and well worth 5 or 6 times the price.

Dave.

For those curious about this, the Emagicsupply link gives more details on the effect than the description above. After reading it, it made me decide to go for this.

I am happy I have it - now I must erase all of your minds and destroy all evidence of its existence so that I alone can weild this fantastic power....

Seriously - it is that good....

As I posted in Penny - maybe we can start paying him to stop releasing it?

I just bought this and read through it a couple of times. It's very clever and I'll work on it some this weekend and see how it performs.

To give some added info on the trick for those considering it, I'll just say a few things. First, there are obviously other ways to achieve some version of this same general effect, i.e., with false shuffles and a memorized deck, for example. This trick is designed to work with a borrowed deck that the spectator can shuffle and, as such, I think is constructed as something of a "magician fooler." There are a couple of principles at work here, one of which I was familiar with (although not the specific method used to achieve this principle) and one of which I was not. In addition there are a number of psychological subtleties built into the effect as well as what on the second read revealed itself to be an exceptionally clean and logically motivated handling of the cards. In fact, I think the sequencing of events in this routine is actually what is the strongest about it, not the specific methods used to create the effect. Everything looks very above board here.

The sleight work here is minimal and, as someone else posted, perhaps on the "Penny for your Thoughts" board, the trick does require some concentration and mental work. In the instructions Vigil says that only an elementary school education is required to do this work; that's about right.

Ironically for me, the principal that I was familiar with is the one behind perhaps my favorite card trick (or, definitely, my favorite "reveal a chosen card" trick). I won't reveal that trick here because it would tip the method of "Diplopia," but I will say that the other trick requires a stack and this doesn't, so I'll probably wind up using this quite a bit.
