Thinking on Sleights

Tony Chang may be our generation's greatest sleight of hand philosopher, and with this collection you'll be able to spend over 2 hours jamming on difficult sleight of hand, performance theory, routine construction, finesse and nuance, and more.

In this bundle you'll find Tony's handling of Ricky Smith's Cherry Control and his ideas and routines that utilize this deceptive sleight, his work on the color change - a stunningly hypnotic transformation of a playing card, and a fun, surprising routine that utilizes Dave Buck's Palming Exercise from If An Octopus Could Palm  and Rich Aviles's Ballerina Change. As part of the bundle, you'll receive a 20 minute interview with Tony regarding sleight of hand theory and practical tips for making your sleights invisible.

Customer reviews for Thinking on Sleights


When Tony Chang releases something, you just get it. He is easily one of the best sleight-of-hand magicians in the world. This bundle is packed with expert-level sleights that are beautifully and thoughtfully disguised under disarming and natural gestures and incorporated into powerful routines. I appreciate that Tony also offers his own subtleties on older moves like the Cherry Control, DMB Control, and the Ambitious Riser. Even if difficult moves intimidate you, this bundle is a worthy investment as Tony shares a wealth of knowledge surrounding the process of creating and refining sleights so that they look more and more like true magic. Just get it!



Tony Chang's bundle is a wonderful combination of sleights and theory that is lacking in the mentality of most magicians. With the clear touch of Spanish school of card magic, Tony drive us through is way of interpretation of angles,moves motivation and the search for the real sense of magic. This is one of the thing that I will never regret the money I spent. Thank you!



This bundle is amazing but I don't think it would be good for people who don't like to put the time in their tricks and sleights but if you do and you're a move monkey like me this would be perfect. :D



Tony Chang is a genius! Love every single routine and sleight in this bundle. Definitely takes practice but you will not be disappointed. Put the time in and be better at your craft. This will definitely make your handling better and give you a new perspective on how to approach sleight of hand



Some difficult moves but fantastic to practice!
