I received mine today. The deck is perfect. It handles beautifully.

Jay starts off with some history and a presentation of the Eddie Fields handling to give a flavor for what the deck is about.

He then explains the deck. Anyone that has had troble in the past understanding the deck is going to love Jay's teaching.

And...the DVD is chock full of tips and routines that will appeal to folks new to the Invisible Deck and those folks that have used the deck for years.

I'm just starting to go through the DVD, but it's another homerun for Jay Sankey. I'm really impressed with the thought Jay put into this project.

Jay has been releasing killer material along with his wonderful revamped website.

I'm LOVING this DVD. Jay not only teaches handlings, but he goes into some performance psychology that is real food for thought.

Good morning.
I have had a couple of IDs sitting around pretty much collecting dust. I know this is a great idea but I never put much time into it. Something about it didn't inspire me to put any time into it. When I saw that this DVD was coming out I bought it thinking that maybe it would motivate me to work with a ID. Did it ever. This is a great instructional DVD. Jay Sankey does a great job pointing out so many differant ways of presenting this effect.
Having just started to play with this deck, I'm having problems spreading the cards properly. I've been told that you need to break the deck in. If anyone would be so kind as to PM me with a good way of doing that I would appreciate it. Perhaps it's just a feel that will come with practice. After watching the DVD several times, I will be putting the time into this deck.
By the way, Jay Sankey's customer service is fantastic.

This thread makes me Lol.
The Invisible Deck is such a simple concept, it's a great venue to showcase your own creative thoughts. Do we really need to be led every single step of the way?

That's the problem with the ID. It is so simple. No sleigths are used and so....it doesn't get the attention that is needed to perfom it well. And...MANY folks that get it don't perform it well. It either goes in the drawer or continues to be performed poorly.

JPK, you don't have to break the cards in. They just tend to loosen their grip so to speak. Just buy yourself the stuff you need to spray the cards again and you will see your deck is as good as new. I had the same spreading problem because the deck lost it's "grip".

I hope you understand what I mean. I bought Jay's DVD as well and I look forward to it.

My favorite use is in combination with Richard Osterlind's breakthrough card system.

Do you honestly believe that there is NO value in taking a closer look at a prop like this? Do you believe that someone could come up with a presentation that you've never thought of that would make the trick that much better?

Jay gives a TON of ideas that I've never thought of. Many of them can be combined together to create a custom routine.

Probably the best thing about this DVD is that it gets the creative juices flowing and inspires other ideas. This kind of stuff is always good for the mind.

Based on the feedback here on the Café, I picked this up at my local shop yesterday afternoon. I didn't have a lot of time to look at it, so I've only watched the beginning where Jay does the overview of the deck itself, and some of the classic handlings. I haven't gotten into any of his new and creative handlings.

I'm another one who has had an ID for years and years but never really put it to use. I'm generally a fan of Sankey's stuff, so I figured an in-depth look at a lot of different ideas for a prop that's been just sitting in my drawer is worth looking at. I'm sure I'll find something here I enjoy.

Plus, getting both the DVD and a Bicycle ID at the price he's asking is one of the best deals value-wise that I've seen in quite awhile.

I'm going to finish up the DVD tonight, and I'll post back later with some thoughts.

OK, I'm back!

The DVD weighs in at a hefty hour and 45 minute runtime. Plenty of material here.

Lots and lots of creative concepts at play. Whether you've never used an ID before in your life, or if you've used one every day for the last 10 years, I think there's something here for everyone.

Jay really gets into the thinking he put into each routine and touches on some really interesting premises with the ID, and how to incorporate it into your working repertoire.

Also, just as a note, you won't find any of Jay's wacky antics and voices in this one. That may be a positive or negative, depending on who you are. You can really tell that Jay loves the ID, and his enthusiasm for it really comes through in this DVD.

Definitely recommended.

Thanks Christopher,

I like Jays DVD's I am going to pick this one up. He must have a very interesting take on the ID. I feel I do not really use the ID to its full potential.

No doubt about that... I've watched the DVD again, and the more I see it, the more excited I get. There's a lot of information about the selection process of having the spec pick the card, things that I never would have considered that are very important to the success of the trick. It's a sweet deal.

One of Jay's best offering's to the fraternity. He has outdone himself ( again ).

New to the ID? Get it!

Know it and perform with it? GET IT!!

Good afternoon.
I just wanted to say thanks to all of those that offered advice on the handling of the ID. With just a little bit a time, and a light touch, I'm getting it to look good. Thanks a bunch.

OK after seeing the overwhelming praise for this product I immediately ordered it (much to my wifes dismay). As soon as I get it I'll give you my impressions of it, as this will be only the second gaff deck I have ever handled...
