The Hype:
The brilliant evolution of Deep Astonishment



Paul Harris' Clearest Deepest Astonishment is a bullet-proof Masterpiece.
A window-ID-wallet VISIBLY holding a small packet of cards is placed on the table.
Anyone FREELY calls out a short, favorite word or name.
Let's say it's ZING.
She uses her magic word ZING for a fast, fun Card Mystery
But that's just the Deep Clear warm up...
Your empty hands pick up the clear wallet and slowly slide out the cards that have never left her sight!
Drawn on each card is a single large bold letter.
The letters spell out a single word...

My Take:
There is no doubt about it. Paul Harris is one of the all time great closeup magic inventors. Way, way, way back in the beginning of my obsession with magic, I got a copy of "Supermagic" by Paul Harris. This was vastly different from the run of the mill magic books, which, while they had good material, tended to be over technical and boring. Then Paul comes along and upsets the entire industry. Clever plots and strong magic. How many versions of "Reset" have there been?

If that wasn't enough to insure his place, he has been coming out with really clever gimmicks the last few years which allow the average magician to perform jaw dropping effects. Deep Clear is just such a product. This is Paul's update of his Deep Astonishment routine. Deep Astonishment required a crosscut force and a crib sheet as memorization was involved. Deep Clear has done away with both of these requirements. The only downside of the new version is that you are limited to four letters and in the original, you could have up to seven.

There are zero sleights involved. This is a very easy routine to do and it kills. The look on the face of your spectator when you remove the cards, first showing that no more cards remain in the wallet, then show the letters spelling his word, makes this routine worth every penny you pay for it.

There is some preparation you need to do before you can use the gimmick. However, this requires no arts and crafts or anything else other than a Sharpie. If you plan on using it for walk around, you will have to vanish for a bit to reset as it cannot be done out in the open. The reset is pretty quick though.

The first time you practice this routine, you will fool yourself. The gimmick does all the heavy lifting for you. Paul has created a real reputation maker with this release. I am used to Paul coming up with both quirky and impressive magic and he continues his streak with this one. And one of the big selling points for me is that this is fun to perform. Once you try it, you will add it to every show.

The ad copy covers pretty much everything you need to know so I won't go back over the same points again. Just know that this is an incredible and beautiful routine. The gimmick is quality made and should last you a long time. You also have the option to use a different backed deck than what comes with this purchase.

This is one of the most powerful routines that I have seen in a long time. The method is easy and practical and the props are well made. Watch the online video demo and that should be enough to sell you on this. I can't wait to take it out in public. And Paul, you've done it again..
