Lee has set a new benchmark for practical, strong, strolling magic in a DVD.

One could make a living from this material alone.

I don't think it will be beaten for a long time.

I've been one of the very luck few who have had a sneak preview of Lee's updates to the Strike 2 effect
What Lee has done has taken the effect to another level, meaning you can include the same lighters in other effects at the same time!
I believe Lee will have more info on these in the very near future, including release dates etc
Check back soon!
Nice one Lee, you've done it again!

Cameron you will love the new lighters, Lee sent me some to play with and they have some great card reveals on them also.

Lee hasn't shot the new DVD as yet but I believe he will be filming very shortly. This is a real worker, especially with all the extras.

Hi Guys regarding Strike 2,

I just posted this in Latest and Greatest -

It should answer a few questions.

The lighters are not gimmicked and they can be used for standard routine, but they have the option to take things further if you would like. They are printed with a Strike 2 logo and have two card revelations hidden on them (one very popular one, and this has come in handy on the fly a few times) these are perfect for leading into/out off a card set and onto Strike 2.

But if you prefer just the standard routine then they can be used in that way and work perfect.

The main idea behind this was myself and Russ got lots of emails from people asking where to get the lighters? and many said they could not find any suitable. So I decided to get my own made up for lectures. Plus the routine was one of the most talked about on the DVD set and lots of people wanted the proper lighters that I used.

So I decided to get some made up on the exact same lighter stock that I use, and we put the revelations on them to make a whole new routine if need be. And It works great! they are always ready to go and there are so many added possibilites with them to play around with. (Both lighters work as well)

If you like the standard routine? or wanted the lighters but could not find them the? these will be perfect for both.

I will be showing these to people for the first ime at the L.A.D.s convention coming up this week.

Many thanks,

Lee.

Just got this, all in all, pretty good. Nothing particularly new or earth shattering but I don't think that was the goal! lol This is all relatively easy stuff to do and effective in the real world.

My only complaint is that at 35 bucks a pop(or $70 for both) this did not need to be a two dvd set. They could have had "performance only" or left out entirely the things that were not his or barely his and just had a single dvd. Unless someone is really adding to what is already there I have mixed thoughts on buying the same trick over and over again. Les is a competent performer but in some cases I didn't see a lot(presentation or handling) added to the original routines. This is just my opinion.

If you were just getting started or didn't have a decent size library then obviously you would feel differently. How much you will enjoy this set just kind of depends on where you're at.

Production quality, as always with RSVP, is top notch.

Many might disagree with me but I'm really not saying they are a bad set. Just sort of playing Devil's Advocate here for people who have been at it a while or have large magic collections. You may not find anything new here, but then again, were you searching or just wanting to watch other workers in action like I was? lol Pretty spendy to watch a guy do some strolling magic though Smile

Hi Hart,

Thanks for taking the time to put up your thoughts, I am glad you enjoyed the set. We wanted to include as much as possible (mainly or new comers) as well as the pros.

The project was based around my lecture notes that's why there is a mixture of material on there.

You might like to know that we are working on another project that is my own material or original material it will still be easy working effects but maybe a bit more sleight heavy than the Step System.

I will PM you one of the new routines to have a look at.

Thanks again,

Lee.

I had lunch with Lee yesterday and he performed trans box ition for me. It is a beautifully worked out sequence where all the work is so well covered in the presentation and flow. A beautiful sequence by a great fella.

No b.s, the follow up to this first collection which Lee will now be doing early next year will really get the strolling workers excited. Practical audience tested material that really cuts it.

Best

John, it was great to catch up.

You caught me many times your magic is fantastic! I am glad you like the effect it has been one of the most talked about on the project. I will keep you updated on the new project.

Picked both volumes up at Blackpool based on the strength of 'strike two' which is just great eye candy and along with trans-box-ition and third degree are the standout effects for me. Really happy with my purchase. When I bought the DVD's I did jot pick up the lighters you were selling...I really liked the look of the esso lighters you had and that are used on the DVD performance and thought I would pick similar lighters up myself. This has proved a harder task than I imagined after scouring various shops, garages and supermarkets. I don't know if anyone can suggest where in the uk I could pick similar looking lighters up...I liked the colours and innocent, everyday look of those particular lighters.

Hi Phil,

Really pleased you are so happy with your purchuse.

The routines you listed are some of my favourites as well.

in regards to the lighters. The ones I use as mentioned are from the Esso garages but they need a Snack and Shop attached to them. You can get great lighters in many places some new agents stock a brillaint one with an England St George cross on them.

Keep an eye out and something will pop up.

Lee.
