Not sure what you mean Pegasus? It seemed like you thought it was just one deck for both the ID and the Kicker.. I was merely stating that it would seem that they are two separate things and you need a deck for each.

All the best,

I bought this at Blackpool. I will NOT be using it as a follow up to a standard I.D but as a stand alone effect. The handling that David teaches is good and it works a treat but I have come up with a way that suits my style better.

If you need to know more (without tipping the method, but if you think you know how it's done then you're probably correct) then please give me a shout.

I recommend it to any of you workers out there.

Cheers,

Graeme

Ah I see. Sorry. No. I realised it was a stand-alone deck full of the full 52 gaffs.

Did anyone pick this up at Blackpool

Is the demo honest or is a lot more work involved for the kicker ?

It’s not just this item but it seems to me that so much pushing, dissecting , guessing, ripping apart of new magic is not only not right but it is not gentlemanly. It is simple, buy or do not buy as we used to do when the world was nicer.

Is it just me or is the embedded video from the first post not working anymore?

Sebastian... you have to realise that Pegasus wants you to explain every single detail about any given product, otherwise he won't buy it. Smile

How is everyone carrying all these one trick decks? Need a holster. Pocket management gets tricky as the releases continue to pour out.

Got and really like it. Decks are very nice and instruction pretty straight forward. Will be using this. Will work great as a stand alone effect.

Terrific review, Alex. Thank you.

Picked this up in Blackpool. Will definitely use it but as a stand alone effect

My copy arrived yesterday, my initial thoughts is that is much better as a stand alone effect, i.e a return set routine if you've already performed invisible deck, you could even call back to it "Remember earlier I had you name a card and I had reversed it ahead of time? Let's do a similiar effect again.." I can see myself using this but only as a backup trick if I had say a 2 hour gig for 50 people and needed more effects.

I found Davids handling a bit basic to find the card, though if he used a cull that would stop the instant reset. He adds an extra kicker when the 52 on 1 reverts back to a standard 52 on 1 card, I don't think this is needed tho

I have this and really like it. I'm a bit surprised by some of the negativity on here. I've bought quite a lot of effects already this year, hoping to extend my repertoire and I think this one will stick. Its very well thought out and presented and I think this will play out well. I'm definitely going to give this a try out at the weekend. There are no difficult moves but it needs quite a bit of practise to get the sequencing of steps embedded in the old muscle memory so I'm not sure its suitable for a casual magician.

Other advantages for me is that it doesn't need a table and if you get the handling right is easy enough to reset on the fly.

I probably won't combine this with the Invisible Deck routine as it stands up well enough on its own I feel.

Yes you do have to carry a deck with you to perform this but a to double up the potential for this one deck I'm thinking of combining this with Calen Morelli's Method 01 to give me a blister effect with the same deck and the same (or maybe a different) card.

I like this. Like most people, I don’t plan to use this to follow ID, and I can’t really figure out why David marketed it that way. As others have said, the handling he teaches is basic and too cluttered. Throw in a top change instead of the moves he teaches and you streamline the handling greatly. I agree that finding the correct card could be more streamlined/deceptive but I like the instant reset feature. I’ve done it three times thus far and no one has questioned the process yet. I pencil dot the main card and start with it in the middle of the deck. I then spread the deck face down and find a “random” card to put on their hand. Because I haven’t looked at the card yet, it gives me more of an excuse to spread through the deck at the key moment.
