---Demo gave me the impression that only about 1/4th of the introduced deck can be shown to be normal/shuffled when it was removed from the case.
--- Demo gave me the impression that after the selection, the deck must be put away and is definitely not useable for another routine much less examinable.


---Not accurate, this effect has the ability to show deck freely and if one feels they need to shuffle prior, then that they can do.
--- Not true, deck is normal, can be shown and used for other tricks. I present it by having spectator shuffle deck after their selection. At that point, leave deck on table if you wish, or put it away, does not matter.

Just wanted to address a couple thoughts from post above.

I think you were coming at it from a different mind set to me, I didn't consider the points your raised because I didn't even think of them! some great effects can be done with a g*ff*d deck but this uses an ordinary deck!

I was looking at this from the POV of a participant, that is all, what is the effect on them, the normal deck etc is a bonus, the first thing that came to my mind after reading it was a way to cut the cards at the beginning, it's quite flexible,

I'm not trying to convince you, just don't want people to think something that doesn't apply

Really enjoying this well written booklet. Rus goes over a lot of detail and shares a few different ideas as far as working with borrowed decks in addition to your own decks. This effect really is stunning to the audience and the single prediction at the end is the icing on the cake. There is plenty of room with this effect and I am confident that many will get great use out of this effect. It is well within the grasp of a beginner and for the serious card worker, they too shall find a nice idea here that they will use as presented in this Ebook or in a variety of other ways. Also want to clarify that this is not a single trick pony, a one trick deck or a crazy deck that has to be hidden. Everything about this effect and it's presentation can and should be above board, meaning the handling does not need to be cozy. It is extremely fair and if you are the type that feels everything you do needs to be examined, feel free to do so. The deck is clean and can and should be used for your other effects. Recommended.
