I understand Tony Miller has a new 16 card index coming out that is truly unique and functional.

Etienne,

Sorry,

I guess I should have specified, I was talking about a full deck (or close to full deck) index.

Thanks,

Daniel Madison has one called Advocate. I like it.

Also try this:

And I'm also curious about Tony Binarelli's index.

Ted Lesley have an easy and workable index for 52 playing cards.

Volume One - Cabaret Mindreading has the explanation for his index:

I believe Annemann's Practical Mental Magic, reprinted by Dover in 1983 and still in print, has a pretty good description of how to construct one. I never constructed it, but the drawings looked very good, and the description was very clear cut.

VINNY

Hi Vinny

In a book by the Camirand Academy of magic in Canada, and I think authored by Gary Ouellet, Tony Binarelli, the flamboyant Italian magician had released the flattest possible card index. Really smart, simple and convenient.

My favorite full-deck index is Harry Lorayne's "Self-Index" from Deck-Sterity. It just uses the deck--nothing else--and is super easy to learn and use.

IMHO it depends on what you are trying to do. Hofzinser's index worked pretty darn well.

Another vote for Daniel Madison's "advocate". This is a full deck index that is very easy to navigate. Smart thinking

Just Bought Daniel Madison's "The Advocate". I say... The best 20 bucks I have ever spent on a gimmick! This index is great!

Thank you Daniel Madison for creating this and Thank you Bobby and Dan for recommending it!

Can't speak for the others (Other than Lorayne's, which is terrific), but I'm looking forward to receiving the new index from Tony Miller.
