Ben Earl caused a SENSATION last year when we released his Less is More hardbacked book, as well as his deck-switching treatise. People know him for beautiful and intricate sleight-of-hand. Today we present a new side of Benjamin Earl, with this fantatsic self working card location.
Ramjollock An INSANE magician-fooler, this effect requires absolutely no sleight-of-hand at all. ANY pack can be used and this is what happens: a spectator cuts anywhere into a deck and remembers the card he cut to and IMMEDIATELY replaces the packet back so the full deck is square. The cards are cut and shuffled multiple times by the spectator, and then the selection is moved anywhere he likes in the pack. When you take back the deck, you can immediately spread through and remove the chosen card.
Customer reviews for Ramjollock
Oh boy, what a nice trick on so many levels! First, it is really easy because of the method. Second, it uses a principle that not so many magicians are aware of and therefor is fools not only laymen but magicians also. Third, everything happens in the spectators hands! A trick to start with!
This is yet another cracking trick From Ben to go together with red herring yes there is a bit of a set up but never the less is still a magician fooler and is well worth the price, what you can do is perform this then follow it up with red herring so the set up will be destroyed and no one will have a clue to the method.
Famous truck explained by the master himself. As a beginner in magic, this is absolutely worth every penny with no sleight of hand required.
Can see why they call it a magician fooler - while red herring can be done for everyone, this is best for those with a little knowledge and shuffling ability, using what might be seen as advantages against the participant. Magic judo. If you like Ben Earl's material...
This is a fooler across the board. Ben Earl is synonymous with devilish techniques and this is no exception. It seems so casual and with good management of your audience it will feel like nothing at all happened. The only drawback if I were to be honest is that you need to do something for two minutes or so before.
Yes, I like the effect and it is IMPOSSIBLE for laymen and for magicians. The downside is that you need a bit "preparation" before showing that trick. Yes, the deck must be complete and yes, it can be from an spectator. But you need about two minutes preparation time without destroying anything.
You will not find out how its done, so buy the BUNDLE. I like the RED HERRING more, but this is my opinion.
