This is a great variation of a move that Alex is a MASTER at. Its a convincer for the move that also switches the card for another one. It can be used as a control to the top, or the bottom. Also it can be used as a force, since it switches the card. I wasn't to thrilled with the move until I saw the effects. Ricochet is a trippy card transposition that is impromptu. My favourite effect was 'Eliminace' , a skewed transposition of a card that has been in full view the entire time, this is definitely going into my repertoire. There is also an amazing mystery card effect that is very clean and is impossible to backtrack. All in all this download is more than a move and is worth more than the pricetag.



When you buy this- play around with anniversary waltz using the force. I came up with a great routine.

Alex teaches a variation on a move he does with unique skill. There are three great tricks involved, all of them is one of those ''Hey, show me a trick'' trick. The method is really hard, because there are some finger motions that is hard to do simultaneously. I think Alex teaches it great, but you have to practice this for a looooong time if you want to make it one of those, eyes-can-be-burned-control, so a little bit misdirection is needed.

I struggled with the Classic Pass and TOP turned out the be the perfect alternative. This move is so sly yet relatively easy. I actually laugh to myself sometimes when I'm executing this move because it's so brilliant.



It's taught very well and I picked it up pretty quick.

For starters the explanation holds up to the Dan and Dave standard, and well done to Alex Pandrea for the delivery. This control is effortless when practiced and can be done right in front of people with minimal cover.



Also there are three routines that you get along with the variations of the move, all of them are high impact transpositions which can be altered to form your own routine. Thank you Alex Pandrea and thank you Dan and Dave.

I always have problems with classic pass. And I got many suggestions to do turnover pass instead, which I found that it's easier to cover to move. And Alex's T.O.P. is even better than those. He explained very clear and the move is not difficult to do. It's really deceptive.



Moreover, the effects that Alex thought is really practical and easy to do. Those are all great example of ways to use this utility move. I really recommend this. This move is great and has a lot applications.

This is top quality material from Mr. Pandrea and the Buck twins. Pandrea goes over the sleight thoroughly and tries his best to give advice on how to master his TOP control. This control is multi-purpose that comes with a couple awesome bonus tricks. A great control. It even allows you to force a card that has a different back from the rest of deck! It will take practice, but I highly recommend this sleight.

Absolutely great!!! Great explanation, great and easy technique. Really recommend this one. It's like a clipshift, doublelift or the pass, once you learn it, you will use it all the time.
Thank you Alex. :)
