The author of Solo-X and Shock F/X presents a brand new book of large illusions. Whether you're planning your club show or television special, there's something here for you:
The performer hands a spectator a deck of cards and instructs him to make sure all the cards are different, and to then shuffle the deck in any manner he desires. At that point a rubber band is placed around the deck and the deck is sent out into the audience where three different spectators each peek at a card and commit it to memory. THERE IS NO DECK SWITCH.
Upon return of the deck - which is not inspected in any way - the performer correctly divines the three thought-of selections in the manner of the classic Tossed-Out Deck.
"A very fine method and presentation... I would recommend it unhesitatingly."
- Herb Zarrow
"First a word of advice. Trust me when I suggest that all well seasoned 'workers' toss out your Tossed-Out-Decks! That's right: get rid of them!
Once you experience David's In Flight, you will be in command of the most bewildering and diabolical feat of pure mentalism one could imagine. I can personally attest to the stunning impact this effect had on the very knowledgeable attendees at the 2004 4F convention.
Included with the ingenious deck and professional script, David has been granted permission to share a 'wonderful subtlety' of Wayne Dobson's. On a personal note: in the early days I became friends with the legendary David Hoy and witnessed his signature performance of this effect on many occasions. If possible, Mr. Hoy would be the first to give In Flight a standing ovation."
- Roger Klause
Comes complete with a specially manufactured deck of cards, rubber bands, a 10-page booklet detailing David's complete routine, and, with permission, a special tip from Wayne Dobson that will turn the revelations into a sure fire applause cue!

This recording was made years ago by Patrick Page and Vic Pinto and released as a Trik-a-Tape Video. Martin Breese obtianed the worldwide right of this highly creative footage and now has converted it to DVD format.
The material on this DVD consists of demonstrations and explanations of the following effects: The Razor Blade Trick, Last Second Ring on Rope, The Flying Ring, The Aggravating Arrows and Smaller Than That.. Some of these effects plus many others have been released in the three Terri Rogers books that I published Secrets (1986), More Secrets (1988) and finally Top Secrets (1998). Terri Rogers had an ingenious mind and released a number of effects commercially and probably the best known of all is The Master-Key which many performers consider to be the best book-test ever created.
Despite being a talented creator and inventor of magic Terri Rogers was better known as a ventriloquist and she and Shorty Rogers (her vent doll) traveled the world together. Terri Rogers and Val Andrews were lifelong partners and friends and together they made a major contribution to the art of magic.

Here is something amazing! Get ready to predict things before they take place and not only that but having the prediction inside a balloon, which is the ultimate symbol of intact as nothing can pass in or out. Luca and Titanas bring you the fundamentals and many bonuses for this incredible mind boggling concept!
You proceed to a complete stranger and hand them a balloon, ask them their name and also to name any card they want. They do so and you ask them to give the balloon a shake. They will hear something inside. You burst the balloon and inside there is only one card, which of course matches the freely selected card, with the spectator's name written on it. That is just a small sample of what is possible with this wonderful concept.
Luca created an amazing video with so many ideas utilizing an old concept from the past and brought it to 2009. He succeeded to created many practical professional routines.
