Customer reviews for Double Lift Workshop
I'm not a card mechanic. I can do some card moves but I dread the double lift. I always struggle with the "get ready" and have not once pulled off a convincing double. There are several methods taught. The video isn't of the greatest quality but it doesn't need to be. It's mostly just a close up of the hands. I'm very happy to have purchased this.
very informative and I love the bonus trick. I struggle with double lifts which are so essential. Great work guys!
This came with some good ideas and training. really happy with this download.
Excellent tutorial teaching a number of different double lifts. Some more advanced but worth the effort. The extra trick included at the end is a great one utilizing the last method taught, but can be used with the other ways as well.
The double lift has alluded me for so long. I have many videos on various methods , all requiring hours of practice. Paul Wilsons explanations are clear and concise, making practice a pleasure. His explanations with clear video and angles are quite a treat. By working on your doubles you will truly be doing the turn overs quite naturally. worth every penny.
Love this video and Paul’s explanations. The double lift is crucial for any magician and there are so many good techniques and tips in this video that it is worth many times its cost. I would add Andi Gladwins master push off dvd has a much better and more in depth explanation of the push off but these double lifts are all good. I use the pinky count for most of my get readies for a double lift but I use several of these lifts all the time. Highly recommended.
Stunning tutorial to sharpen you double lift styles! Really straight forward teaching and great details and subtles to have your practice easier to gain muscle memory. Highly recommend this for any beginner or seasoned card handler to increase your skill on the double lift!
Excellent video with clear explanation of different methods.
..... sometimes you think you know a lot and everything about Magic, then just look back and discover that we have lost or skipped some small chapter of our learning. Double Lift Workshop, helps a lot to improve the double grip technique and the video instructions are very well detailed in the execution steps. The price of the downloads
it is a bit expensive, but it is worth buying.
Nicely explained, defiantly worth buy if you need some extra double lift tips!
I got this video when I started out in magic. I knew that mastering a great double lift is one of the main basics in card magic. This video was a life saver for me. Paul also gives references so that anyone can look up the sleight and have a better understanding of it.
I have learned more from this video than any other magic video out there. This is truly a wealth of information for an outstanding price; it is worth at least 5 times more. Thank you Paul Wilson for sharing this with us and thank you Dan and Dave for making it available.
Double lift is the very first basic technique that every magicians must know. But don't underestimate this sleight, even if you think you already know how to do a double lift. For me, I noticed myself that when I try to do double lift and when I do normal lift, the movement of my hand and fingers are different. Even if I have never been caught doing the double lift, but I realized that something need to be fixed. Doing the double lift that can deceive layman is easy, but to deceive magicians is very difficult. And since this is the most basic sleight of card magic, so I decided to make it most close to perfect as I could. And I found that this tutorial provides me exactly what I needed.
In this tutorial, there are several ways to do double lift. Some methods don't require any break beforehand, and these are very natural ways to do the sleight. Another methods might require a break, but the lift look so impossible to be 2 cards. Others are also nice, and fun to practice. Finally, Paul Wilson also added a bonus trick which require a lot of double lift, very good for practicing the sleight. And the effect is also great.
The workshop indeed provides some useful methods for double lift technique. Good tips with several points-of-view.
Has a good variety of double lifts and explains them clearly. He has good tips on fine tuning the lifts too.
