New Miracle from Asi Wind

Postby Richard Kaufman » December 22nd, 2012, 12:09 pm

One of the reasons I look forward to Saturdays is because a new edition of Duncan Trillo's magicweek.co.uk comes out.

This week I found:

Introducing The Invisible Deck, with a normal deck of cards! With thanks to Asi Wind: "A revolutionary system enabling an ultra clean performance of the invisible deck... using a normal deck of cards. 'This really is invisible nothing to see! Excellent!' Wayne Dobson. No force, completely free choice of card; You never have to look at the cards once they are out of the box; The spectator can even spread through the cards; There is only one card reversed; No rough and smooth, use any deck; Instant reset; Unique 'portal' learning system to get you up to speed fast; Plus Bonus sections: A Close Look At The False Overhand Shuffle; Explanation of the Dynamic In Hand Zarrow Shuffle; First ever footage of Reorder Chris Dugdale's dynamic routine from 'Best of British' and full explanation..." Take a peek at www.invisible-deck.com it looks great!

I thought the demo was horrible. Here, let me take the deck out of the box and do lots of moves, then hand you the deck, oh unprepared pal, who happens to spread it out perfectly for the effect and straight to the camera!

And for those reasons, I'm out.

I've seen [much] worse... but will probably stick with a slightly modified version of Paul Harris's ancient Invisible Rising Card.

Mike Close's version of this with a regular deck is miles cleaner.

It's pretty awful compared to the versions out there by Close, Ackerman, and Cummins.

This guy does all the dirty work at the worst possible time, in what Ortiz calls the "Critical Interval".

Simon Aronson has a nice low-sleight approach to an Invisible Deck sort of effect using a memorized stack. The effect is slightly different than the Invisible Deck, but still very nice.

Travis - Do you recall the name of Simon's effect, or in which of his books it appeared?

I believe the effect you are looking for is called, "The Invisible Card" and can be found in "Try the Impossible" or on DVD in "Sessions with Simon" volume 3.
