Everyone seems to be raving about this little beauty by Justin Miller. I've read a lot of positive things, and nothing negative thus far. Video link below, anyone own or seen this performed from beginning to end in the real world?

The video is so stupidly edited that it's hard to tell what's going on.

"No Rough and Smooth."
"No Double-Backers."

Why don't you just tell me that the method is split-backed red/blue backed cards? Between the things you tell me that it isn't, and the cozy way the deck is spread, it's pretty obvious. And the dirty work for the deck switch is already done by the time the camera cuts in.

Richard,
I do not use a deck switch when I perform this.

Also,
Your looking at the gimmick the entire time. It would be unfair and considered cheating if I "rang" in another deck in the video.

Well, then it's better than it appears on your video. Send me one and I'll email my opinion privately. If it's good, you can use it publicly.
