Customer reviews for Zoso Change
2 fantastic changes, i love this, and it's so cheap!
Some say this is a steal for being so cheap! Others say the change is limited in its effect. I think this product, the Zoso and Paft change are perfectly priced. You get two simple changes, both of which are very very good if done right, but also somewhat limited in their angles and effects. Therefore, for two or three dollars it is an excellent buy. Definitely worth it if you only feel like spending a couple bucks but wanting something that could have near immediate use.
You get 2 great changes for a very good price. The Zoso Change is surprisingly easy to do, which doesn't happen often with a visual change like that. The performance angles are great as well. It cannot be done surrounded, but as long as nobody is standing on your very left you are fine. Highly recommend it!
Outstanding. Simple to do ,nicely explained and stupidly cheap. I know dozens of colour changes, and the beauty of this one is that it allows you to change back again, something that very few others do. It's also elegant and organic. Excellent, and at the price, you really can't lose, can you?
Very generously priced, 2-3 very simple and effective changes with little to no practice needed. I am very new to Magic and i mastered within a minute. A must have for card magic performers
I really liked the in-depth tutorial of this change. His voice is very clear and he explains the moves and process excellently. The video itself isn't very long, which is a plus. It goes right into the bread and butter of the techniques. This is a change that with enough practice, can make you look like a star. Great video!!!
This is a lot of fun to perform. The price is CRAZY, for the product you are about to recieve. You should really go straight ahead and add it into your cart!!!! It does actually come with 2 color changes, both of which are really cool. And did I mention how devilishly easy this is? Add this, you wont regret it, and for only 3 dollars? You can't go wrong:)
A fantastic classic that is worthwhile and a must.
Excellent sleight for an amazing price! Didnt expect this sleight to be this easy and i highly recommend it for the price its worth. You get two interesting changes and there pretty quick to get down. 5 stars!
This is a great, super visual change that can be used for a smooth transformation of one card to another, and then back. The change-and-back may be a disadvantage, but the highly visual aspect of the change makes up for it. With a few ideas on routining, you can fit this change in to your repertoire. The angles are very good for what it is - you can do it right in front of the audience and they won't notice a thing. The bonus Paft Change has a nice little utility move that I can see myself using in card routines, particularly fairly complex ones. For 3 bucks, pick this up.
Easy to perform after watch the explanation video. Very visual when you perform it to people outside. This is very cheap to learn a great and visual color change. Easy to master, very low price, buy it now!
A variation on the erdanase color change without the switch. Very clever, though it takes a bit of practice but not an awful lot.
This colour change is amazingly simple, easy, and visual! It looks stunning and is now one of my favourite colour changes! This is great for beginners in magic, because it is just so easy! A great buy!
This is insanely easy! If you can hold a deck, you can do this. The disadvantage to this move is that if you wanted to just change the card once and not back, then use an Erdnase color change. This has a trippy effect of just touching the card and it melting into another. I usually perform Zoso then go into a regular Erdnase change. Also, the Paft change uses some cool ideas, and is angle proof. I'm sure Doc has ways to clean up the Zoso change so it can be done as a single change, but until then, I am doing the Erdnase change straight after.
This is not beginner's magic. It requires a double lift. If you have mastered that, this is a good effect for $3.
Well, this appears to be a reasonably easy change to do but I have no idea how I could use a change that:
A. Doesn't seem to let you display the whole face of the changed card and
B. Forces you to change the card back to the original within a few seconds of the change.
Doc mentions he "kills" with this move. It would have been nice if he showed us this in context, so we could have seen how its rather unusual look might be useful to us.
The Paft Change is somewhat of an afterthought. No justification is given as to why you're using that unusual grip to hold the card. Perhaps he's using it in a flourish sort of routine. Without a killer trick to justify the handling, I'll not give it a second look.
