WoW by Masuda

The Effect: A spectator freely selects a card, signs his name on the face and returns it to the deck.
An indifferent card is slid into a paper-thin clear plastic sleeve just large enough to hold the card.
While the sleeve is held between thumb and forefinger, and with no hand movement of any kind, the indifferent card slowly and visibly morphs into the signed selected card!
The spectator can remove his card. There is nothing else in the sleeve! It looks like real magic!


Cost: $55.00 mjmmagic.com, however I got mine for $20 from a friend



Difficulty
(1=easy to do, 2=No sleights, but not so easy, 3=Some sleights used,
4=Advanced sleights used, 5=Suitable for experienced magicians only)

1: very easy, fool proof gimmick

Review

An amazing colour change. I was not dissapointed, it really did wow me,
it requires almost no work, just simple card controls, and you get the most amazing results.

Pros:
-Amazing Colour Change!!!!
-Ridiculously Easy!!!
-Instantly Repeatable (to another group)
-Can be worked into several routines

Cons:
-Cannot be performed twice for the same audience ( then again, how many tricks can be?)
-Expensive
-Gimmick cannot be handled by spectators




Overall:

10/10 I'm very pleased with Wow, it will be in my repetoire for years to come. Get it! you will not be dissapointed.

All I can say is WoW:D
I just watched it being performed on youtube.. amazing!

Though im not a big fan of the gimmicks that are used in the trick..
I mean the gimmicks that are used visibly in the trick, like the glass square thing-ame-jing.
I always think that spectators know, that its the little glass thing that does the magic, and not the magician..

So my question is;) is the glass holder fully examinable after the trick?

Unfortunately, no, but usually no one asks to see it, they first thing they go for is the card, and I ditch the holder in my pocket, and move on to another trick.

It will stand up to a bit of scrutable inspection though. Try place emphasis that it is you doing the trickery and most won't question the plastic. I.e. do a colour change then bring out your 'anti-sleight' wallet
