10 out of 10 for Brilliant and Creative Ingenuity!

First and foremost, I absolutely “Love” this effect!

The whole ‘process’ and routine of “ID”, including the manner of the reveal, is so extremely clean.
The ‘flow’ of the effect, from start to finish, is sincerely very smooth and easy, for both the audience and the performer.

In the simplest terms, everything about “ID” creates one of those truly beautiful and astounding pieces of magic and/or mentalism, making it an absolute pleasure to perform, every single time!

I’ve been performing this regularly since receiving it in the mail, in numerous situations, with some settings inclusive of the ‘usual’ intoxicated audience members (which performing at social gatherings and parties does bring with it!) …. Yet, the simplicity and focus of the plot and method allows this effect to ‘strongly hold’ the gaze and indeed the concentration of any audience it is performed for perfectly, every single time …... Leaving the spectator and the audience with an extremely strong “What the…???” ‘moment in time’ to remember you by.
A definite reputation maker, and reputation keeper, most assuredly!

If you are familiar with Steve Cook’s other recent effects, such as “Symbol”, “Volition”, “Die Abolical V2” and “The Stealth Case”.…. You would most definitely be aware of Steve’s original and “out of the square” style of thinking, when it comes to method and his very ingenious level of subtle creativity….

So, what else can be described, to give the best overview of “ID”.…?

It is direct, straight forward, and allows you to concentrate fully on the whole performance of this effect. Perfect for stage or parlour… And even more perfect for Close-Up and Walk-Around situations, since no two performances will lead to the same outcome, unless two different spectators end up choosing the exact same card!

No matter the card chosen by the spectator, what the spectator and audience sees is just the same as within the trailer by Alakazam Magic, with the red envelope able to be casually taken out of the wallet once you are into the routine, even while the selection process is still going on!

You can cleanly, without any focus on the envelope whatsoever, casually pull out the card from the envelope, as you are talking, to begin the reveal phase. The beauty also is that the card is brought out with the back facing the audience… So, you can put the envelope away if you wish, and have this moment, and this “framing” as the start of your “reveal” phase.

After the reveal, the reset could not be simpler as it is indeed instant, so you are automatically ready for your next performance for the evening!

Due to its sheer brilliance, ease of use, and ingenuousness, I am definitely loving “ID” by Steve Cook! Well Done Sir!

Superb effect.

It's going to take a bit of work to get this right !
But, isn't that what we do with everything we perform ?
Once you have this down, you'll have one of the most powerful card effects in the world at your fingertips, ( The invisible deck) using a "regular deck" !!!!
With the added bonus of being able to hand out the deck to be shuffled before you slay them with this BRILLIANT piece of card magic !!!!
I know, because I've been killing with this BRILLIANT piece of card magic since I got it down.
I definitely rate this Effect !!!!!

Simple but impactful.

A great way to reveal a chosen card. All you need is some very basic card control and a good presentation to leave people amazed.

Not great

The cards are a little flimsy for me, probably not the best stock and graphics are not as sharp and detailed as I would have liked. On the plus side the thinner cards feel broke in.

deserves to work it !

UNBOUND is very cleverly conceived, and the explanations are sharp and clear, with some interessant variations. I felt that the author has thought to the extreme possibilities or his idea. It is a baffling trick, though needing a good training : what else ? Nobody can master such a routine without working.

Innovative

An intelligent twist on an established trick. The routine needs some practice to perfect the technique but it is readily achievable.

I love it. A great bit of modern magic using a spectator's phone. I always ask them to send me a copy too... great way to get performing photos.
