Mental Deflect & Downfall - My Review

This is my review that I posted at the "Magic Cafe" on 11 August 2006.

This is Peter's excellent packet card trick ebook. This effect is inspired by John Bannon's Twisted Sisters. There are 5 pages and fully illustrated with colour photos.

I always love packet card trick simply because it can be carried in wallet, flexible etc. And this effect immediately added to my repetoire simply because the nature of this effect is very powerful which I believe in the ending part and it's very easy to perform. There is only one move involved in this effect. What you need is just to create a suitable patter (if you wish) and concentrate the presentation on this effect. Peter provided the patter as well. If you like a card trick in conjunction with mentalism, I believe you will simply love this packet trick.

This ebook is on sales now and I understood that purchasing this ebook would get another free ebook, "Downfall" which I think the price is a "steal". The reason is simply because "Downfall" is yet another excellent packet trick which based on Roy Walton's Cascade effect. For those of you who are familiar with Walton's packet trick "Cascade", I believe you will have the urge to find out Peter's handling in this effect.

Peter's handling of "Downfall" is just awesome and the cards can be examined at the end of the trick. For Downfall, in this effect, Peter explained everything in great detail with the aid of colour photos showing the handlings.

All in all, I highly recommended Peter's "Mental Deflect" and at the same time, you will get Downfall for free. If you are looking great piece of card magic without using any complicated card sleights, "Mental Deflect" is for you. For those of you who favour great card magic, I am sure you will like "Downfall" as well.
