Hello guys !
Here's my latest video showing you my version on the transposition in between an Ace and a random card !
The same move can be use for a control, force, switch....

Hey Jordan!
I really like your card-handling skills! Many years in the field I would wager Smile While the performance was very smooth, there were a few things that didn't make sense to me. Now, I'm no expert when it comes to constructing effects, but there are some questions that I asked myself as I was watching the video (trying to take the role of a layman):
-Why would you put the ace in the middle, and THEN put it in the pocket?
-What's with all the cutting of the cards before the "magic"?

Now, will a layman consciously think of those questions? Arguably not. However, my philosophy when constructing an effect is to make it as streamlined and direct as possible (i.e. take out any unnecessary sleights if possible). This will make any particularly sharp spectators less suspicious.

I hope this makes sense, and doesn't sound too much like I'm rambling on Smile Anyway, I definitely think that you have something sweet here! you just have to get a few kinks out.
All of this in my humble opinion,
Kyle

Hey Magikyle !
Thanks you very much for your comment ! Smile

So, there's 2 reason for putting the ace on the middle, I cannot explain the first one here because of the secret, the 2 second one is to have only one card in my hand when I go to my pocket ! It's possible to go directly to the pocket (with a pack in the hand) but I prefer to go to with only one card ! Smile
About the cuts before the magic, you can do an other move other than these cuts, but normally I say at the same time I cut : "Do you remember your card ? That's not this one ? And this one ? Ok, so I'll do the magic method to find it rather than these cuts!".

Hope you understand with my english.... ^^

As beautiful as your handling is, you must take out the necessary movements and sleights. Not just excusing that handling with your patter. It's great, keep working on it Smile
