"Your audience will be stunned as you can cut to any card that the spectator cuts to even though they spectator can shuffle the cards as much as they like and the cards are totally normal. You will want to perform this effect right away, it knocks out both laymen and magicians alike."

Comes complete with 2 normal decks of cards (one red and one blue) and a full explanation and variations on this comprehensive DVD. The DVD lasts approx one hour.

Great DVD filmed by Wayne Fox. Nothing fancy though. I saw this at a lecture and had to pick it up. Real magician fooler. I've since added it to my repertoire.

Essentially the trick is an old technique that allows the entertainer to cut to any card in his packet that the spec cuts to randomly in their own packet. The spectators packet can be shuffled before and during the effect. I believe in the trailer, Wayne accomplishes 3 reveals but I typically will go for between 3-5. It's an effect that you can keep repeating and becomes more and more impossible with each reveal.

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)

I'd give this a 2. A little preparation needed (which probably takes longer then the practice required to learn) but the effect is very easy to accomplish - I'd suggest even beginners can accomplish this. I've since been performing this to magicians who are unable to guess at how this was done.

Admittedly I was disappointed when I first learned the effect...a real 'is that all?' moment. But after throwing the effect together and seeing the results, it's definitely a keeper. This is the trick I hope to always have on me when meeting with fellow magicians.

Overall, this is great value for money. It's very easy to imagine using this technique with other effects or building different variations. I'm using it straight away. The only thing that needs real work on my side is the routine/patter. If anyone has a good comedy routine for this, please feel free to share

Can the cards be used for other tricks after or are they exclusive to Knockout Prediction.

This has teased my brain somewhat. I'm not after you tipping the method, but can you tell me, is this guaranteed surefire every time, or are there regular misses? I only ask as I've seen similar things that involve methods that don't always work, but the promo never shows the misses - I can't think why???
