This year the absolute BEST thing we picked up at The Session was MAGICAL SLEIGHT: SEASON 1. But when we learned it wasn't available through any shops, we promptly fixed that and became the exclusive distributor. We're very, very excited about this one, and it's unlike any other teaching tool on the market.
So what is it? MAGICAL SLEIGHT is a group of French magicians who do INSANELY unique card magic. Ultra visual, usually without words, often very difficult, and always quite beautiful. They have collected 17 tricks and 10 sleights&emdash;which is a TON of stuff&emdash;on something the size and thickness of a business card. But this business card unfolds to produce a USB port (kind of a magic trick in itself) and then plugs into your computer. It opens right up in a web browser and BOOM, you've got the most user-friendly menu system we've ever seen. This is, for us, much BETTER than watching a DVD because the moves are shot so well and from so many angles, and this system lets you navigate through the tricks and moves with ease.
So how is the material? Um, among the best we've EVER SEEN! Imagine spreading a deck face down on the table, scooping it up, and revealing four face-up Aces beneath it. Imagine "flicking" a ribbonspread and causing four Aces to appear face up. Imagine a sandwich routine that happens in about three seconds, start to finish. These guys are on their own planet, and it's a joy to watch. Their material isn't all easy, so plan to spend some time working on this material. But it's a treat just to SEE the kind of explosive magic coming out of France. We have a very limited supply of these USB cards, and when they're gone, they're gone. This object is a bargain at 70 dollars, and you'll be viewing the material again and again and again.
