I'm surprised this hasn't been reviewed here. Check out Zombie's review in the Latest and Greatest thread:

Best DVD set I've seen in years!

Robert, thanks for posting the link.

I do have a slight vested interest in what people think of it. Positive reviews? Negative reviews? Favourite routines? Questions? Any stories 'from the field' after trying stuff out?

Cheers,
Jon

As a reluctant but wanna be thread worker Jon's hook up is as easy as it gets. Even more impressive was his use of thread in such a way that get away from that dreaded comment 'Oh, your using some kind of string'. The presentation is as appealing to kids as it is adults.
Working in a western themed restaurant 'Lucky Card', a shot card effect was a natural.
'World's Funniest Joke' will fit most anybodies stand-up act. Alter it to fit your situation for stand up, the idea can even be used in walk around using business cards-fun.In fact a lot of the routines can be presented close-up or stand up. A lot of good thinking.

Thanks 'plink'.

I should point out the hookup for the thread routine is Jon Le Clair's.
How great to work in a Western themed restaurant and I can imagine how much fun Lucky Card is to perform for you!
What a great idea for transferring World's Funniest Joke onto business cards for close-up.

Good thinking from you too....

Some of my favorites are "Forced Improv", "Signal Strength", "Lucky Card", "The Wedding Trick", World's Funniest Joke", and Schrodinger's Card, but there are many more great tricks and ideas on this set.

Aside from the tricks, I think the conversations between Jon Allen and Dan Harlan on Jon's theories and magic philosophy are probably worth the price of the DVDs alone. As Plink said, there's a lot of good thinking here.

I know one thing... I'm never going to use the words "spectator" and "ultimate" again. ;D

I agree with Robert M, that Connection is the best DVD set in years.

This is by far one of the best dvd sets to come along in awhile. Awesome effects and awesome advice from 2 great magicians..Jon Allen and Dan Harlan.

Anyone with the set perform the "Adlibitious Card"? If you haven't, give it a go. You can really give your mind a workout. I simply can't do the ACR any different thanks to Jon.

Always nice to get feedback from people who have performed my routines and effects. This was in an email yesterday:

"I just wanted to say I loved the DVDs Connection. I did a wedding the other week and used your wedding trick. It went down a storm, the bride nearly started crying she was so overwhelmed with the trick."
