Has anyone been to www.nontricks.com ? I found it thru a member here a while back and it is really growing into some great offerings in coin and card magic. The site comes up in Spanish but a quick click on the translate button ( googles, I believe) and the whole thing converts easily to English for me. The streaming videos are professional quality and well taught ( you may have to enable subs if like me, you don't speak Spanish ) but the subs are in English and I have had no problems following along and learning routines there. From what I have seen of most of the routines, they are well thought out not only in presentation but also in patter. A lot of pure sleight of hand stuff here and a little gaff but everything is within reach of even a beginner.

Thanks for posting.

A beautiful site with some nice effects. But $15 for each individual version of a classic effect seems a bit high.

I would say it is "in range", I see stuff on other sites that charge that or more for what often turns out to be nothing more than a fad "trick of the day, week or whatever" (and even some - straight to the junk drawer) at least classic plots hold up and it is nice to see a different approach to them. Smile I guess that is what I like about it.

There is a button left of the search box that will change the site to English, it came up in English when I logged on anyway.
By failing to prepare, we are preparing to fail.

I purchased from here. Got quick access to the video HOWEVER, it is streaming only. Not good. I have contacted them to see if it is possible to get the download, if not, I will not be purchasing from this site again. I have been burned before with a company that offered a "streaming" service for purchases, only to go offline and then I don't have access to my crap!!!!

Any site that is streaming only is, in effect, allowing you to rent the material rather than buy it. Companies go bust all the time, especially on the internet, even more especially in the magic game on the internet.

A case of buyer/renter beware, I think.

All true, and I have been burnt before also but I see the other side. There is so much blatant piracy out there you must be careful as a seller. Again, I am not arguing the point, only seeing both sides.
That being said, I have a few effects from the site and don't find any so hard that I would "forget" how to do them if the site went belly up next month. I understand and even agree that I would "rather" have a copy stored on my own computer (and hopefully they will do this one day with DRM protection or something similar) but I really don't think "that alone" should be a reason to not go to or buy from the site. I can say I am happy with the effects I have and think there is some great thinking magicians putting stuff out on the site. I would also "hope" that people like Dani DaOrtiz and Miguel Angel Gea wouldn't be "on board" with a less than solid website. I think they are worth a shot. Smile
