I have struggled with some of the moves and still practicing to get it perfect before I show people. I am sure there's going to be some good reactions with Print, especially when it comes to the climax at the end
Agree with some of the other comments, I had a feeling that some ditching would be required and didn't like the switch and ditch method. Really don't like videos cutting out important parts of the routine. (Its almost like making something vanish by stopping the video, removing the item and then restarting the filming again)
I bought it based on what I saw and sort of knew that I would be disappointed by the method
The internet was abuzz because 'no rough and smooth, no palming, cards can be examined' in the description! Didn't mention the horrible, horrible couple of moves that were cut from the trailer video. After all these years you'd think I'd know by now if it looks to good to be true it probably is.
I am very much in the learning stage of performing illusions such as this and it appealed to me as it seemed and was billed as being pretty easy to master. I am however finding that it is taking a lot of practice to achieve the effect in order to wow an audience but that is probably down to my inexperience. I have asked for further help with it and have been delighted with the response. They even produced a short video for me personally to demonstrate a particular point to me that was causing me problems. That is great customer service and I would certainly buy from them again confident that any queries I had would be answered quickly.
I purchased this because the description led me to belive it required no real skill to perform. However, I found the video tutorial very difficult to follow. It does seem to be a matter of commiting a sequence of actions to memory rather than mastering sleight of hand. Unfortunately Anthony's heavy French accent (no fault of his, more down to lack of aural acuity on my part) made it difficult to follow the instructions. I found his approach to the structure of the tutorial somewhat difficult to follow, as well.
The performance of this illusion is impressive but I would say this is not for a beginner.

As someone that is only just getting used to shuffling cards, is this a trick that an absolute beginner can handle ? My approach is to try and learn the classic sleights etc before getting to far into buying off the shelf product that might dilute my practice, but sometimes it is nice to have a commercial product that can work from the box so speak without the need for ‘magic’ powers. Thanks

Print uses a couple of very basic introductory card magic moves. Nothing that a beginner can't do with a normal amount of practice. It's a good option for beginners who want to work on the basics of card magic with a performable trick, rather than just drilling an isolated move over and over. A great first step into sleight of hand with cards for a total beginner. The best way to learn a 'move' is for it to have a use... That way you keep using it and the practice gives you a practical result.
