Hi All!

I'v had such great feedback and input with Case 21 I just wanted to say thank you to you all! Smile

I have release a new effect Transfix, a new Cards Through Case effect.

I'v always believed that magic should be interesting and exciting to look at, which was my inspiration for this effect.

You can see the effect here http://www.lybrary.com/transfix-cards-th......943.html

Everything can be examined before and after the performance, and it happens in the spectators hands. I have had nothing but great feedback from peers which is wonderful. I would be more than happy to answer any questions anyone has, and I will also keep you updated as to stores that sell this!

I truly value being a member of the Café, inspiration and insight is never far away! Thanks all!

Regards,
Ben

Wow Ben! Impressive trailer.
This may be an unnecessary question that only a magician might ask and a spectator wouldn't care but can the card be signed?

Thank you Smile This can be easily performed with a signed card. One part of the handling is a little different than in the book. If you have the book, I can film a quick video detailing how to do this if you wish.

I was fortunate to receive a complimentary review copy by Ben Howard. I don't know him and if you look at his pic, you can see he's a New User with few posts. This being the case I didn't know what to expect from his ebook. I was impressed with the trailer though and was interested in buying it, but money has been tight. Having reviewed the ebook, I can say that I would have EASILY bought this anyway. It is a really impressive ebook in it's presentation and writing style. I'm terrible with mechanics and handling of props. I like to learn via video. That being the case, I was pleasantly surprised to see many pics that were easy to follow. And he's also very accomodating, offering one on one feedback or even a video clip if I had trouble making the gimmick. As a fan of Industrial Revelation and Insertion, this is a welcome addition in my arsenal of deck penetrations. I'm looking forward to future releases by Ben.

Just bought this and read the PDF. I do like the effect and the handling is rather easy. The PDF contains nice illustrations but has a few mistakes when talking about some of the steps and the number of cards in use which I had to re-read a few times to get the full understanding. Though, the preparation and handling for the effect are not knuckle busting and rather simple. There is a little clean-up involved but it to is rather simple. Overall- if you like the effect- I would recommend buying it.

Thank you MagicBrent and RNK for your kind words, I'm glad you enjoy the book Smile

RNK, if you would be kind enough to send me a quick PM with the step that doesn't make sense I will update the e-book and forward you on a copy, as well as replace the current version on the site. I would be very grateful Smile

Thanks,
Ben

No problem Ben- I will do that. I wish I had time to make this up for tonights gig on the boat. I really think this will play well. And it's an effect with no strange moves to an experienced magician, so once you make it up- you can easily accomplish this. And- you don't have anything else to make once you do the one-time preparation. A nice feature in my book!

The case can only be examined after a switch, correct?

that's what I thought but I think the premise is the card box is meant to be seen with the slits its the fact that the three cards go through the card that's in the box. So no switching of the box.
