As a relatively novice magician, I was never aware of any CAAN effects until I came across this and purchased it.
This effect has honestly become one of my favorite card tricks to perform. What I love about it is the sheer
impossibility of the outcome of the trick. Think about it: You show a spectator a mixed-up pack of cards, have them
choose any number between 1 and 50, have them place an 'arrow' card anywhere they wish in the spread of cards, and
give them the opportunity to both rotate the arrow card and swap the final two cards. In the spectator's eyes, their choices
are completely free, which they are in fact.
The trick is so straightforward and clear, and a bare minimum of sleight of hand is required. Actually, I wouldn't even say that there are any sleights required, with the exception of one that that happens literally under the spectator's nose, without looking like any type of sleight of hand. There is nothing to hide with CAANDY.
I give this a very high recommendation..the only bad thing that I can say about this is the video. Although Chris is hysterical and entertaining, a few key points may not be given the attention they deserve. You may have to re-play portions of the video to catch what's being taught. But nevertheless, the effect is taught in its entirety.
I give this a high recommendation! (But don't buy it, because I consider this a kind of hidden secret of my own, and convince myself that nobody else performs this...)
