Many for me as I strive to make new purchases relevant..but the biggest crowd pleasers for me are easily...klaus the mouse and stickman bob.

I see I contributed to this thread in 2017 and most of the effects I listed then I still use, or have updated eg from Visionary 2 to 3. And for my coloured ESP cards I now use Zeneration X, which are absolutely brilliant. But to this list of trusty favourites and effects I have been using for some time I add Looch's Blink.

I’ll second Blink. And Underlooked, for that matter. And 100th Monkey.
Please check regularly if you are becoming the type of magician Jerry Seinfeld jokes about. (This applies to mentalists as well.)

"Doric" ...
Hopping Halves (sun and moon) - I agree, a true classic.
Wish I had not sold my set.

I think we need to differentiate between stuff we bought for certain performance conditions and audiences. For example, you wouldn't be performing certain tricks for younger audiences (kids) that would slay teenage and adult audiences (e.g., Needle swallow, Russian Roulette, a lot of card effects, most mentalism, etc.) What I use on a regular basis for performances for close up magic and mentalism are that I have owned for longer than a year:

My oxf set from Jamie. I’ll use them independently or together. I also switched to only using the marked maiden back penguin cards. I don’t always use the markings, but at 5.00 a deck, they are worth doing all my card work with. People never notice if I’m using a rider back gaff with them. I never had a marked deck signed in the past because they were too expensive to ruin. At the price for them and how well they’s worth the investment.

Triple Threat (Lassen);
Omni Deck (Palmer Magic / Farquhar);
and In the Middle )Mark Mason).
I am not surprised that I use the first two - they are both so good and strong, but the audience response to In the Middle has me still using it over and over again; I bought a second set as backup.

This has become one of my favorite impromptu effects. I find there to be plenty of room for my personality to come out when performing this trick.
