Double Barrel by Bob Solari
Card Trick $20.00 (hand crafted by Mr. Solari)

Double Barrel is a routine where the spectator freely picks a card, no force is used, and the magician tells them the name of their card. The spectator opens another deck of cards, which has been in their pocket the entire time, and told to count down to a specific number and the selection is found at that predicted number. This is an accurate description, again no force is used and no fishing to determine the selection or are the cards marked. The key is an interesting gaff made by Bob Solari. While this is not an original routine the gaff is unique, to me, and I think will please a lot of people. There are other methods of obtaining the same effect but the gaff gives you a very direct means and eliminates a problem with a very similar routine recently released using the same idea but w/out the more elaborate gaff as found here.

When you purchase Double Barrel you get the gaff and a cheat to help you determine where the selected card is in the deck. The instructions are written and include some photographs. This may appeal more to the casual performer than the strolling magician because it does require a deck that is stacked and it adds to what you have to carry around with you and the spectator counting down to another card will require you to get the deck back in order, sometimes tough to do between tables. Angles might also be a bit of a problem. It is a solid routine though and if it sounds like your cup of tea you may want to give Double Barrel some consideration.
