Focus by Phil Goldstein is almost all packet tricks and they are excellent (some use just a packet while others use a packet and the deck).

You asked for non gaffed packet tricks, but does that include using cards with different colored backs? Check out Transfourmation in Focus. It's a four of a kind transformation with a color changing kicker ending. Very cool...

Blu tiger,

I forgot about focus. You guys should definitely check out "Masque" by Phil Goldstein. It's a great packet trick using ungaffed cards.

Taken from an ordinary (could be borrowed) deck.
1. Masquerade (Walt Maddison)from his Spaka-Trix book.
2. Jackrobatics (David Britlands)
3. 3 Card Monte (??)

I forgot to mention the absolutely brilliant "HOMING CARD" ala Kaps.

Are there DVD's dedicated to tricks with cards from ordinary decks and not the full deck. I am looking for a DVD of only packet routines with ordinary cards.

I check out MAsque and was impressed. In which publication would I find it and also is Focus a title of a book.

If you'd like a packet trick with a story (besides Color Monte), David Regal came up with Royal Jazz Quartet, which, I believe, he released for free.

I have a new DVD out called Slim, which is a collection of packet tricks using cards taken from a regular deck. It's available through all dealers

Any questions let me know.

Here's a link to the trailer -

In the near future, I will be giving away ( for a $5 donation to the Café) an effect done with normal cards.
It is based upon John Bannon's TWISTED SISTER;however, the entire face of the card is exposed and the suits are not the same color.
No EC's needed thanks to Cameron Francis handling
Best,
Jeff

Late to the party on this one, but as to another handling of Reset, Nick Trosts has been my favorite for sometime.

A 'thread' of similar moves with the bang of reveal of the original reset yet much easier from the handling/technique p.o.v.

Let's one focus more on presentation and story rather than the moves themselves.
Chet Atkins, Jerry Reed and Tommy Emmanuel are all you need to study to learn to play guitar.

Tailspin by John Guastaferro
Using a four-of-a-kind of the spectator's choosing, you cause each of the cards to turn face-down, then transform...twice!

Two thumbs up!!! I just love it.

I'm a little late on this too but have to agree with Vinny here much earlier on as I absolutely love Yannic Chretien's, "Reflipped" WOW! Smile It's one of my favorites now and causing me not to do the gaffed packet stuff more & more. Smile

Refipped is just a wonderful little effect and I'm very glad I came across it. Not big on Yannick's handling of it but Josh Jay's take on it makes it a bit more straight-forward and just as visually amazing. Wonderful effect with just 8 cards from a normal deck. Smile

It makes a decent-enough coin guy look like a pretty good card man too. Love it! Smile

Not sure of the real name (as I'm sure there is a good name for it, and a poor magician that was robbed of the credit) but I always get a great reaction with "The Million Dollar Card trick" and "Waveing the Aces" Hollingsworth.

My favorite packet trick is from:
The Art of Close-Up Magic by Lewis Ganson vol. 1 book. It's a Oil and Water Routine.
Here's a vid of the routine.
Enjoy

I know I'm late to the party here, but that was a great little routine!

(but dang is my wallet ever going to suffer from all these "gotta buy it" books.) Smile

Sorry for being late to this.
but my absolute favorite from "the card magic of Nick Trost"
"Double Pinochile with an Elevator Finish" the tittle does not
do justice to how great a reaction you get from this packet trick
from a regular deck.

I like doing "The Devil's Elevator" followed by "Oil and Water" to explain (wink, wink) why the cards keep traveling upward. The only move they share is the Elmsley Count so I feel pretty confident that I won't get busted so long as my Elmsley Count is kept smooth.

All I have to do is secretly add a fifth black card to the bottom of the packet after they examine the cards from the first effect (pretty easy to do in a wide variety of ways). I just tell them I'm cheating and go into Oil and Water showing that I can't keep them together even if I try. And since I already let them hold all the cards I'm using (at least that's what they think) they are usually content to let it end without a second examination. If they do want to examine after I finish Oil and Water, I usually just cop the card back out.
