TransWave

I came up this effect while I was toying around with a few versions of "B'Wave" and in my version, this is a pure sleight-of-hand approach and there's no equivoque or prediction. 

I put more emphasis on pure card transposition between two packets and a series of magical occurences. In other words, this means that my handling is not related to "B'Wave" at all.

If you enjoy visual card transposition between two packets and nail the spectator at the end for a big kicker, this is the kind of effect that plays very well to lay audience. The kicker implies that the performer reveals the cards have different and various backs in spite of the two packets exchange places in the process! Also included two bonus handlings that are very strong to end this wonderful routine. Best of all, all the cards can be given out for examination.


Here's what a few of them say:

"I think Transwave (excellent title) is a great routine -- one of your best. A lot of magic happens before the final kicker ending that will fry minds."
-- Peter Duffie

"I love the trick! Lots of really strong magic."
-- Cameron Francis

"I like the trick - it is clever to use a discrepancy to add another effect so then everything is clean at the end. This is a beautiful and effective packet effect. Keep'em coming!"
-- Raphaël Czaja

"I have to say that the routine is very well constructed. Andrew turns an unexaminable card trick into an examinable one by using the clean up as an effect! Overall, it's a great transposition routine."
-- John Holt

"Very good trick! The final surprise is a great idea!"
-- Didier Dupré


Last but not least, I also received a not-so-good review from Tom Frame at: http://www.geniimagazine.com

This e-book is not suitable for beginners. While all the moves are explained clearly but some previous card handling experience is preferable.
