Ok, If you have ANY, tricks that use a great amount of skill with no gaffs or gimmicks, please tell me, I would love to hear about them, I am new here at the Café (July 2021) and want to hear some of the various tricks performed by yall, so please tell me all about em!

I will start, this trick is still in the stage of practice because of a move I am trying to perfect. This is a 4 Queen Production with an Oil and Water Triumph routine. I am doing this trick for the Junior Society (I'm 14) at the World Famous Magic Castle to get into the AMA(Academy of Magical Arts). So I would like to know your thoughts on the trick, thanks!

Buy any of the wonderful Darwin Ortiz books or Jason Ladayne books.

Plenty of routines which require great technical skill.

If you love good card magic check out the material of the above magicians!

This is the material I started with and is still most of the card material I perform today!

What move? Helps us to know what you are working on. When is the performance? Are you sure you want to do something you're "trying to perfect" in a potentially stressful performance? Why not just do something easy to moderately difficult that you can do perfectly?

This one's easy.

Practically any trick from Ernest Earick's By Forces Unseen.

The Performance is in October so I have time to get this down, I have all but one move down so not crazy amounts of practice are needed,(I do it anyway) but I can get the trick down by then for sure my friend! Oh and I have to learn culling the cards to separate red and black for the oil and water portion.

My advice if you want to impress people would be to do something magical and focus on the presentation aspects. Why focus on doing something because it is hard? To impress? You may impress some, but if that's all you do, you may miss the mark.

Agreed. The audience will not or should not know if what you are doing requires great tech skills.

But they are fun to play with.

"Rollover Aces" always impresses.
One of the last living 10-in-one performers. I wanted to be in show business the worst way, and that was it.
