A. B. See by Spidey is a mentalism tool that will leave your audiences speechless! Your spectator will look though a series of children's flashcards and pick a secret card. You'll be able to connect with their thoughts and reveal more about them than if they'd picked a regular playing card. This brand new method is completely examinable and there are no markings!

Features:

  • No sleight of hand or markings
  • Super easy to learn (Spidey teaches a layman to perform the method in 10 minutes)
  • Printed by USPPC
  • Comes with 2 hours of instructions and multiple techniques for handling the cards

The method behind this is great. I was on the Metro coming home from work when Spidey first shared this with me, and I spent the entire ride home trying to figure out how the hell it worked. This is honestly fantastic and ridiculously easy to pick up

Is this based on Syl Reilly’s “Mental Pictoria” pack (with a disguised st***)? I’m curious what advantages this has over something like Anton’s “Mentalism Symbol Pack” beyond the outward appearance of being ABC flashcards.

Best wishes,

Drew

That's the only thing I'm wondering, too. If it's a stack, then that takes away some opportunities for mixing and so on.

I have this on order, I am hoping not too much memory work, no mention of it,so probably is and if it is a stack then it's Alphabetical but it can't be that obvious, could it. Possibly something to do with the Letters? like a certain Cinema veriete,?

Can’t fathom why he feels the need to show a non magician the secret and then exclaim she learned it in minutes? Does it mean that he thinks we are all a little ‘slow’ but this effect won’t tax us too much?!

Notwithstanding that, I have ordered it. Some good mileage can be gained from this with a little thought.
Once you’re not too slow, that is.😁⭐️🌟

Wonderful review, thank you. I've decided to buy this after watching your video.

Really appreciate that you get to the point and don't waffle on. 11:49 minutes is a good length for a review.

Great review Steve, mmm my worst fear lol, Memory and a stack thought it would be, still see how it goes,my memory is getting bad I have to almost have a crib to remember 3 things, old age creeping up on me,i might be able to find something in this,i do adapt things to make things easier if they work,even in plain sight to me like on the pen I am drawing with .

This might come as a complete shock to you but you were not my first consideration when making the trailer 😜. Of course I don’t think you’re slow, but you, as a professional magician, make up such a small part of the target market. A vast majority of sales go to hobbiests and my personal following is mostly beginners-hobbiests. It is extremely important for them to know they can learn this quickly. It wouldn’t be an exaggeration to say I’ve sold at least 20 copies on opening weekend specifically because we showed how quickly someone who doesn’t do magic learned it. Easy enough for beginners, strong enough for pros. I think that’s a good marketing angle 🤷‍♂️

Thanks for the review Steve! So glad you liked it! If anyone has any questions please feel free to ask! Pros usually know what they want and what works for them and I wouldn’t want you to get something you won’t use because of a fancy trailer.

Great question! I like MSP and have used it. But I wanted a deck that makes sense. But putting words on them would
Highlight the alphabetical order even more. So I had to change it entirely. Watch the trailer, you see me holding them in order numerous times. Nobody will ever ever see what you see once you know the method. I added something that masks the method and in my opinion, makes it very deceptive. I’ve fooled every magician I’ve shown this too, none of them can see an order to them.

And it may come as a complete shock to you that I wasn’t talking about myself, I was writing in general terms. I’m not so precious or self important, thankfully. I do think it dilutes the mystery, but it’s your effect and you do what you want with it. If it’s marketing angles you’re after, knock yourself out! I’m looking forward to getting it. Good luck with your sales and your marketing strategy.😃

Thanks! I truly hope you enjoy it, and who knows, you may very well be right in saying it was unnecessary. It wasn’t planned for the trailer, we did it on a whim and found it genuinely amazing that someone with no experience in magic picked it up that quickly and that might give those who feel like this would be time consuming that little extra push they need.

Yeah it looks very nice - Personally I don't like the fact that there are letters on the cards (might tip the idea of an alphabetic order), but I do understand it's spelling/training cards - so in that sense its natural. Rotational stacks, memorized decks etc. is always good for mind reading - it's a time tested killer by many mentalists.

Having said that, if you want a more adult version you can easily set-up "SNAPS by David Jonathan & Dan Harlan" in a memorized order like alphabet, numbers, animals etc.

A.B.See looks like it's delivering everything it promises. Will pick it up along the way.

BTW: Steve Faulkner - appreciate your reviews - keep them coming Smile

Funny how things come full circle. My very first purchase this year was a set of picture cards in the guise they were French language learning cards. They looked the part, were good and with the secret well hidden.

I am sure these cards will be just as good but sans le Francis.

You must be talking about Omnitool by Julien Losa. Julien is a friend and our methods are significantly different. He helped with the crediting for this a lot! Omnitool is terrific!

Yes I was talking about Omnitool and just as I found this very clever and different I am sure I will like A B See just as much.
