You really can't go wrong with any of them but I would also have to recommend # 2 for Twisting the Aces, Daley's Last Trick, Card Warp, That's It, Ambitious Card, and MacDonald's Aces.

Volumes 2 and 5, in my opinion, stand out from the rest. If you get volume 5, you will learn Vernon`s "Out of sight, Out of mind", which is probably one of the finest pieces of mentalism you can perform with a borrowed deck of cards. There is also Ammar`s now classic "Card on Ceiling" on volume 5. This trick alone is worth the price of the tape if you are not already familiar with it. Virginia City Shuffle and Christ`s Fabulous four Ace Trick are not bad either. I`m not making your decision any easier, am I. Smile

Number 2 gets my vote too. I also like number 4, though, because it has a couple of gems such as "Dunbury Aces", "Your Signed Card", "Reset" and "Dr Daley's Gambler vs Magician".

If (when) I get another, I'm going for number 5.

I will also go with 2 and 5 but I chose 5 just for Virinia City Shuffle which is my favourite of all the effects that are on the tapes.

Well, that is the catch, they are ALL great, since they choose all routines that are classics!!!

The best routine(s) will most probably be the one(s) you enjoy the most performing, since your enthusiasm will be contagious to your audience!!!!

Besides, tastes are personals, so someone's favorite routine might be another's least favorite....

Find out which ones YOU like best and start working on them and HAVE FUN!!!!!!! Smile Smile

BTW, my vote also goes for volume 2 & 5.

number two does not have the best tricks. they all do. Michael did not put the best all on one tape, he has great effect all throught. you cant look for the best when the whole series is the best. start with 1 then 2 then3.... that way makes the most sence to me.

I'm trying to remember what's on volume three. Hmmmm. I definately like Jazz Aces. A fine fine piece of magic. I was very dissapointed w/ haunted deck, since I'm not an IT fan, and it's not so impromptu, but I devised my own impromptu haunted deck!

I performed most of tricks in these tapes in my past 2 years experience in card magic to my audiences. You cannot go wrong to get them all. Get them as soon as you can.

It is one of the most important teaching material about card magic in my city. You have to understand that English level of people living here may not get through material easier by written form. As a result the super practice section is one of the highlights of these tape.

Besides, all card tricks are classic in card magic and it involves most of the card magic effects.
Most memorable moment - with Maestro Juan Tamariz & Consuelo Lorgia in FISM Busan 2018.
