Titanas, it's just something I've heard so many professionals point out. I forget who said it, but it was something like "why are you showing them magic at your crotch? Bring it up to showcase your face".

Lol. Well, to be fair, you'd have had to be a yoga master to accomplish Fade at face level. Not all magic can meet the "bring it up" philosophy. It's just something to keep in mind.

Thanks for releasing something like SLIDE that can allow the performer the option!

Penguin says SLIDE is expected to ship on July 25th, 2012.

I keep watching the trailer and how Titanas makes this looks so magical. Having the mismade card 'slide' and then handed out for them to keep would be freaky for them. People have never seen a card torn and restored. The more traditional ways always can be explained that it was switched ( it is ). But this, with a mismade card looks unreal.

It was $55, so this was going to have to be not "just cool". I was up past 2 a.m. Friday night watching and working with the Slide gimmick. I could do it 30 minutes after watching the dvd and working with it. I was just having so much fun doing the various versions, that I stayed up late.

First, this was the best produced DVD I've ever watched. It was beautifully filmed and authored ( something I've never cared about until I watched this VDVD ). The explanations are done silent, while playing beautiful ( baroque? ) music. It's like Mike Ammar's "super learning" sessions done to classical music. Mike felt the music induced a higher learning state. If you don't care for music, you can turn the sound off and miss nothing. But I really liked the music.

I also think it's about the most clever magic product ever put out. This allows, even an average magician, to perform a piece of magic that looks like trick photography done on TV.

Skill level needed: A young person could do the very basic effect as it's not difficult. You can take a playing card, a bill, matchbook or business card out of your wallet and do it.

Angles: If you want to do it "Up" then they can't be behind you ( like with the bill switch and many classics of magic ). But if you brought it down and close to you, then no worries.

Even the routines that would require spectator interaction ( choosing/signing a card ) is no more difficult to execute, but your'e doing more ( they pick a card, sign it, you take it back, etc. ). There are so many possibilities with this little gaff. You can carry it in your wallet or in your pocket. In the wallet makes perfect sense for using a bill or business card.

They show performances and explanations of each effects. They use clear plastic cards in the explanations.

Playing Card Slide ( including a signed version )
Mismade Playing Card Slide
Money Slide
Matchbook Slide
Business Card Slide

Each version has it's own layered teaching options with:
Performance
Gimmick Set Up
Explanation

The matchbook and business card is a performers dream. Mike Ammar has a great torn and restored business card with his showcase wallet. You go to give you business card, but it's the last one and it's torn. He then restores it.

The Slide version version, with that patter, is one of the BEST ways to give away a business card. They will never forget you.

The gimmick is so clever. No reason for it not to last until your long gone. Maybe they'll offer refills so you can set up for multiple effects.

I know $55 is a bit pricey to just hit the order button. But when you see the gimmick, what it can do, you'll be pleased and happy it wasn't $100, because there must have been years of R&D behind this.

What's the reset time? Is there much to ditch at the end of the routine? How much clean up?

Thanks for the review, Zombie. Sounds pretty good. Mine should be arriving tomorrow at work. Can't wait to open the package and see it. Can you answer Vernon's questions next time you're back here? I'm sure that you will!

Bats, I think you will love this. PM me when you get it.

VernonOnCoins, I can answer your questions as I've already performed Slide at the store.

I have it set up for the bill routine. I took the bill out, had two halves, did the Slide, used the wallet, which is already out to ditch. The reset is a matter of having another folded bill and placing the gimmick against it.

The bill gimmick isn't "permanent". You can just remove it and added it to a prepared playing card, matchbook, etc.

The wallet as a ditch method isn't needed. If you're comfortable palming/holding out, go ahead. There is also a very clever ( it's an old tried and true method in magic ) for ditching. They really covered the bases on the dvd to appeal to all skill levels.

Thank you very much for the review, Zombie. I was reticent to get this until I saw a positive review due to the price. But seeing how much you were looking forward to getting and performing this and then learning that you were so pleased with the product, has made up my mind for me. I just feel guilty now for letting you 'risk' your money on my behalf...
