Salt-Less – The second plotless trick, you pick a card Maigc find it. In my top 3 card magic books ever written. But with the chosen card being found at selected number from the top of the deck, it’s more than just a handling.

At least when you put 3 on each you have uniformity of action, also you need to do the turnover change twice in this version whereas it was only used once in the previous version. In the side pocket – This is another risky item. For Harry, there is no dead time.

Watch for lots of exciting changes in the near future to better serve you, the magic community. Good for you Ted Leondo.


A good if rather obvious application of the Curry change. You are entitled to call them as you see them, and you are entitled to think Harry’s change to Design for Laughter is inconsequential.

I can’t see anyone having a problem learning the move from the description. The original do as I do is superior as the same effect is created with no moves at all. There is more to life than magic tricks. Robin Dawes rated it really liked it Apr 08, You could actually use the pocket idea with Vernon’s trick which could add a nice presentational aspect.

Guinn Inner circle “Great Scott! You are brave to differ with the majority! Oh and re the faro shuffle.

Alex Hui rated it it was amazing Aug 12, We’ve got a lorxyne of new magic tricks up our sleeve. Flash Aces – Lorayne arrogantly prefaces this trick by saying that someone told him it was very similar to someone else’s effect. This is a filler trick and I don’t like it.
