Hi

I'll give you 10 pounds for it, can't say fairer than that. I mean, it's practically falling apart and someones scribbled all over one of the pages..

10 pounds, and that's cutting my own throat :)

Hi

I've just uploaded a new card effect up onto my website for your perusal. You can check it out at www.magicden.co.uk

It's called "flipside" and it should find favour with some of you.

re the angle problems

If you do a slight neck-tie as you do the lift it's covered from the left side aswell. Plus you don't need to turn to the left or cover with your right hand. Note a slight neck-tie

The natural double lift is the best double lift in existance I've never experienced any angle problems with the move. Maybe you're doing it wrong Richard. ;) Practice some more you'll get it eventually :)
