Arrived in Woodland Hills on Wednesday. First one I've been thoroughly disappointed with.

I had a "meh" feeling as well, however I haven't tried it on anyone yet, so it could be the trick of the century. :)

Well, I'd say the ceiling is much lower. But the point is valid. This week at the Castle, David Regal did a trick that I've read in one of his books. I remember thinking it was good but not particularly special, but when I saw it I could appreciate just how great it looks. It's one of those things where the benefitaside from typically wonderful Regal constructionis that the handling is so natural and artless. This I find is one of the things that is hardest to appreciate on the printed page.

David also did a tremendous version of the Card in Ringbox that he will be selling soon. It's really really great.

How great? The box is made of clear plastic.
