I love this. Since it's not terribly difficult, it will be easy to get this one down at least within a month of practice. He is very detailed in all the moves, and there should be no difficulty understanding. All in all, great effect!
An amazing trick by all means, but not for beginners. This is one of the hardest, best looking, awing tricks on the site by far. Though the flourish itself isn't very hard, doing it at speed, and doing the last part with both hands at the same time is definitely going to take some practice.
I absolutely loved this! Amazing how to put a twist into it!
This trick may look hard at first but it's pretty simple. This is divide into a couple parts. Taught is a cool flourish that is hard at first but easy to master, and a pretty cool move you can put into a sandwiching effect. The flourish itself is amazing as it contain a special property which I don't want to spoil. You can place the divided part together to create a master piece. This is a very wonderful sandwich/flourish effect.
Its great. It is hard but hey it's fun to do. The teaching is great and covers all the arts from start to finish. You should have basic knowledge of cardistry because you learn a Molecule variation. A nice trick and its free.
Overall this is an excellent trick. The tutorial is broken down into simple parts making the whole trick / flourish relatively easy to learn. Apart form this a lot of practise is still required to perfect it, such as doing the flourish at speed.
Even though I was a bit gutted when i realised the trick used to be free, it was still 100% worth the money.
I'm very satisfied with the prchase of this effect. Expertly performed and explained, despite the difficult of the flourishes. The flourish is easy to learn, but very difficult to get up to speed required for the performance, and the same with most of the other flourishes and sleights also. Overall, this a must-have and well worth the money.
The effect is great. I've been searching for magic tricks that allow me to do flourishes for years. This is the answer!
The tutorial is divided in many parts. Each part is easy to understand. The flourish part is not too fast, not too slow. The applications of each part can also be used effectively for other tricks as well.
Difficulty: Medium. I think it's also easy enough for beginner to understand. It takes some practice anyway, but not impossible to achieve.
Love this trick. Really enjoyed the step by step directions. Practice is the most fun. Thanks for all you guys do. Hope that you keep these amazing tricks and flourishes coming. Until next time. ?? you then.
The trick is okay. But the tutorial is very easy to follow and the flourish is not hard to learn. The trick will take some practice though. Overall, a very nice effect to add to your repertoire.
It is pretty difficult to do, but it does pay off.
The trick and the performance itself really does not make sense to me. This is a trick you'll be performing to other magicians, just so you can show you mad skills with cards and flourishes, however it is not really a magic trick, considering that you openly place one of the spectators chosen cards on the bottom of the deck - thus removing any illusion that the card is lost. This just simply will not seem very 'magical' to an ordenary spectator.
However, the flourish and the two card sandwich/reveals you learn in the video make up for the actual trick itself. The false molecule floruish is hard to learn, but looks great when done fast and smoothly. The sandwich moves done to reveal the cards are also very good looking an d are a fine addition to your collection of sandwich moves.
All in all, it's a good value for your money. You most likely won't go out performing the trick as seen in the video, but the cool moves learned here make up for it.
It was a good effect but not the easiest to learn. He goes into good detail and explains each part on its own before he explains the actual trick. It takes a little while to learn the flourish but looks good once you do.
