I have this effect and my only comment would be 'watch the angles!'
I have not performed this live as yet but I am very cautious of the angles.
I perform at lot in the streets and I'm not to sure just how much you can
get away with.
We are inclined to believe those whom we do not know because they have not yet deceived us...

How long does it take to put together the gimmick? (Say I walked into a bar that had their own matchbooks and I wanted to do it with one of them.) Is it something I could easily put together in the bathroom? Or does it require a little too much arts and crafts for that?

You can set this up quite fast, so yes a trip to the bathroom would do it!!

I think one can get tired of 50 'Paul Harris presents' per year

Speak for yourself.

I think they're averaging less than one a month. And they're producing effects that were created by many different magicians. I don't see any reason why we should cap that number.

Keep them coming PHP.

I performed this for my wife (one of those pesky lay persons who always spots the magicians moves on first look - really erks me cause I ALWAYS miss it...yes I'm a lay magician)

The question she asked was "Why would you restore the card mis matched like that? Surely if you have the ability to restore cards, wouldn't you fix them up properly so you can re use them?

***SIGH***

Should I ban her from ALL my shows? Anyone got an answer I could give her?

Performing for family/friends has its pros and cons. She actually helped you in case anyone, on the off chance, ever raises that question ( or any question about the magic you perform ). Think of answers to the question. Just one example ( that might not fit you )

"well, anyone can restore the card fixed up properly".

"To make it unique, so they remember me".

"My girlfriend likes when it's done this way".

I agree. I may not buy all of them, but Paul is one of the few out their who is producing risky magic. They may not all be winners, but they are all unique, and fresh...exactly what you would expect from Mr. Astonishment.
Pay no attention to that man behind the curtain.

Quick idea: For those doing gigs at weddings, I ask for a picture of the couple, print it in card stock before the wedding and make a big deal sliding restoration of the photograph for the couple at the end...lines like "just like you two found each other on the 14th of whatever...these two pieces come closer and closer to rejoin...etc" can be used.
Have fun and thank you all for your kind words!

Well, I got my hands on Slide a few months ago and never gave it a good look. I finally pulled it out and began working with this. I decided to go with the Business Card version. After playing around with it I do like this. The operation and moves with Slide are super easy and very smooth. The set-up is super easy to. I must say, I had trouble going to bed last night as I just wanted to keep doing this in the mirror! My only fear is that Slide looks to magical! Don't know if that's sort of an Oxymoron statement or not???? Anyway, I was concerned about the cleanup because of how magical this looks- I was thinking the specs will at first say to themselves- OK- there has to be an extra piece or something and immediately start scanning me. Then I remembered I have UCCU. I began to giggle inside like a little kid. Those who have Slide and know what's involved in the cleanup- imagine not having to go south or do any misdirection after the restore! Well, that's what UCCU can make happen! I feel that this now will be a beautiful piece of magic. And if you are using a playing card with the deck or something else with the wallet as the DVD suggests, giving you the ability to cleanup easily- I think this is a very nice piece of magic. I am going to have a very good chance to give this a good work out in the next week. I will post back after I give it a go... But my first impressions- Slide is pretty Slick!! I am still a little on the fence regarding the price for this- but my road test will make that decision for me in this upcoming week.

OK. Just test ran this once and I must say- got a great reaction! I didn't even have the UCCU on me and it still went down very nice. After the initial test with this I can say I am very excited to start using this regularly! Slide has great potential- just keep your angles and hand positions right and you will have a stunning effect. And actually, the angles are pretty darn good with this- you can even postion your hands and use your fingers to increase your angle views! Definitely liking this!

Hi,

One question - does this effect request any refills if I'm not going to restore a card with one half face up and one half face down?

No refills necessary - it is a reusable gimmick. The only thing that can get used up are the provided "twisted" cards, which you could always make up yourself if you really need it, but I don't really care for that version of the effect anyway...

OK, one more thing - can I show the entire deck to the spectators after performance?

So glad to hear that RNK is already in the "Slide" sie of magic! I love the UCCU idea!
Keep 'em coming guys!
Have fun with Slide!

Quick Idea: Use slide with every theme by printing on blank card stock. Names of couples, Actors and roles, bands and songs, + and - signs ,talk about magnetism!!!
