Hello.
I'm looking for Ed Marlo's "Perfect Stop Trick", which uses 13 sequential card stack(A through K).
My question is which book has it?
Thanks much in advance.

Is it like the one in Card College vol. 5?

Thanks Lance and Remotea for a quick reply.

I now know "PERFECT STOP TRICK" is in EARLY MARLO. Or it is the single manuscript sold by Magic Inc.

I have another question. Are the single manuscript sold by Magic Inc. and the one in EARLY MARLO the same? Which is the better buy?

You used to be able to get it from trickshop.com as a pdf. Great trick.

Marlo's magic is not very practical for performance. He has a lot of technical crap that is not suitable for laymen performances. There are other better versions of this effect that are more practical. Perhaps Harry Lorayne or Paul Gordon has a variation that is better?



Thank You,

Yeah Trini that's right not to mention a lot of "in-jokes" that SUPPOSEDLY only the SO CALLED "cognoscenti" even GET. Like his "Piano Duet" whose ONLY purpose is to fool magicians that know the piano trick. Movey, angley "magic for magicians": that's all the SO-CALLED "great magician" "Marlo" is good for....

(Unlike Trini who lets his satire speak for itself, I want to point out that I'm kidding here...a lot of people have missed my subtle humor lately and I don't mean just on the Magic Café...in case it wasn't perfectly clear, I am a Marlophile and I love the tons of *practical* magic he has put out.

I sincerely don't know how to answer to such an extremist assertion without writing a novel which will have nothing to do with the initial post...

I do hope Trini's post is satire, not least because the trick in question is self working and is one of the best versions of a classic...either way, Marlo's reputations are deserved. Both a machinistic technophile and, yet, a crafter of remarkably effective routines and methods that are both accessible and commercial.

Oh, Paul Gordon gives me hives.

It's not, satire only works if both sides are on the same page. His post is not to be taken seriously if that what you mean. Quite frankly the trolling attempts on the Café (which has become increasingly common lately) are becoming annoying.

that said, it's good that the OP's questio has been answered.

Trini's post is satire. He hangs with Racherbaumer in N'Awlins. He's a Second Deal guy. Unless I'm thinking of a different Trini. I can't believe this humorous bit of trolling got a bite Smile Besides, as JohnWells points out, the trick in question is self-working, making the comment even MORE of a put-on.

And I very much want to meet Mr. X when I get to London, if I ever do. I want to make one thing perfectly clear to him before I do: I'm NOT a magician.

Just cause it don't work doesn't mean it ain't.

For me, the perfect stop trick is a combination of a handling decribed by Fulves (in the Chronicles?), with a dodge of Terry Guyatt, which I don't think has been published. Which is a pity!

The stop trick is a long time favorite. A precursor to the Marlo Routine, which may have inspired Annemann's version, has been my go to effect for one off platform or stage performances. Ireland's bottom deal handling is excellent. Of course, Stewart Judah's favorite Card Trick has appeal. I love the stop trick.

Oh yes, it's a wonderful premise.

My absolutely favorite way to go is the Psychic Stop psychological force from Expert Card Technique. Never fails.

Though it isn't described correctly. It works, but the spectator has to do the dealing. You lose 80% of the impact if you deal the cards.

Oh yesss. Giobbi has some nice thoughts regarding the spectator dealing the cards.

Woah, does the Café double as a dating site too?

Lucky me.
