If I may so bold...

Here's a link to a performance of my Ultimate Oil and Water, about which Matt Field was so complimentary in this month's issue of The Magic Circular, the magazine of The Magic Circle.

This is a good version, but I made the mistake of buying the upgrade for an extra ten pounds. Ripoff in my opinion. The extra something should be included free. I was not impressed.

You put on an extra 10 pounds doing this. Is it fattening? Just joking. The effect looks good but thanks for the heads up.

Pegasus, I'm sorry to read that you didn't think that the Upgrade was worth what you paid for it. The folks at TVMagic.co.uk tell me that the overwhelming feedback they've had for the Upgrade set has been positive. In fact they tell me that many purchasers bought the Upgrade set after they'd bought the standard Ultimate Oil and Water set and knew exactly what they were getting for the money.

You might be interested to know that since we shot the DVD I've developed several additional handlings for Ultimate Oil and Water. I'm in the process of writing up these handlings and a great improvement shared with me by David Regal (who loves the trick). These handlings will include an improvement which can only be performed using the Upgrade set. All these bonus handlings will be issued free of charge to all purchasers past and future of the new Ultimate Oil and Water. Watch the TVMagic.co.uk newsletter for more details.

EDH, just to clarify, do you mean what is the different between the standard Ultimate Oil and Water set and the Upgrade or what is the difference between my previously released Oil and Water versions and those explained on the new DVD?

Best,

Anthony

Hi EDH,

The new Ultimate Oil and Water DVD goes into the full details of my SOBW routine (with a number of handling improvements since it was first explained on my Dynamic Walkaround Video). The DVD also reveals several suggestions, improvements and additional handlings, including some which have never appeared in print or on film before. The DVD comes complete with the special cards necessary for you to master this right away and I explain how you can make up the cards yourself in the future.

The DVD's contents include:

- My Ultimate Oil and Water routine and full explanation.

- Sebastien Clergue's handling for the final phase.

- My never before revealed improved handling for the second phase.

- My stand up handling never before revealed in print or on video.

As standard this DVD comes with a single set of Ultimate Oil and Water gimmicked cards. These can be used for most of the routines and handlings taught on the DVD.

However, for one of the handlings you will require two matching Ultimate Oil and Water sets of cards and a special additional matching gimmicked card. (Full details are explained on the DVD.) The dealer who currently has the exclusive on this product also offers for sale everything required for this handling. This is listed on their site as Ultimate Oil and Water Plus Cards Only.

However, if you wish to upgrade at the time of purchasing the DVD, you can receive the special set of Ultimate Oil and Water Plus cards (which can be used for all the other handlings taught) instead of the single set of gimmicked cards which accompany the standard version of the DVD. Right now the dealer has a special offer which will save you £5 off the price of purchasing these additional gimmicked cards separately.

I hope that answers your question.

Best,

Anthony

Sebastien Clergue's handling for the final phase and the entire performance is the best that I have seen so far...

I agree. Seb's handling is much better than my original! I'm delighted he's allowed me to share his version on the new DVD.

Don't worry Luke I always tend to put stuff in print first so the guys who read can get it a few years ahead of the DVD folk! I've got some of my favourite stuff in print which nobody is doing because they've never seen anyone doing it!

The reviews of this product which appear in the current issues of Reel Magic, Genii and Magicseen have been very flattering!

Those who have purchased the DVD and cards might be interested to know that the folks at TVMagic.co.uk will shortly be issuing a free bonus. This will teach some additional unreleased improvements for the routine. These include a method for having the cards examined and a great handling by David Regal which makes the routine almost sleight free. Details of how to obtain this free bonus will be sent in the near future to those who subscribe to the TVMagic.co.uk free monthly e-newsletter.

Similar method with Sorted Affair by Elmwood Magic, Sorted Affair is better in my opinion, it comes with full deck of cards and the price is much cheaper

Just to be clear, the method for Ultimate Oil and Water is new and different to that of Sorted Affair and allows for possibilities which are not possible with that version.

Just my 2 cents but... it would have been ultimate if every single card was shown before being tabled... With very little slight of hand there are routines that achieve about exactly the same effect (ok, except for the open version)... and that are not gimmicked (and no extra card)...

But sure, the effect looks good. Smile


PS: By "exactly the same effect" I do not just mean the overall plot of "oil and water" of course, but I mean about the same moves and construction without showing every card, but just half of them (again, except for the open version which is pretty cool)...

Yes, Ultimate Oil and Water by Anthony Owen is really one of the best out there, even though the cards (uses normal cards – NO special cards required) need to be (I'll call it) SORT OF gaffed, it looks and feels like real magic!
