As usual, Zach's teaching is great. Steinman is EXCELLENT. It is extremely visual, practical, adaptable, and fun. I love to do this in front of a mirror and it works for real audiences. Suchong, on the other hand, was a good change, but I did not really learn anything new. I did not realize how close it was to the change that it was based on. If I did, I could have just learned it from the trailer.
Lucas Swift • British Columbia • 4/28/2013
Love both Steinman and Suchong because as long as you have a little finesse and a lenient angle, they look impossible.
Vath • Cambodia • 4/12/2013
Steinman: I love this effect both variations are not good for live audiences (in my opinion) but I still love it and it's not very hard to do.
Suchong: Freaking love this change. It's simpler and easier to do than Steinman.
Splicer: Love the idea but unfortunately, I don't have a blank deck. I still do the color changing deck though. Freaking awesome.
Andrew Frost • England • 3/19/2013
Visually beautiful and although a little angle sensitive, it blows spectators away. If only I could get my hands on a black deck.
Sullivan Case • California • 3/13/2013
Everything about this is amazing but the bit where you wave your hand over and the card and it changes is hard for children because we have small hands.
Panhavath • Cambodia • 3/1/2013
Very cool change, I use this a lot.
James Martin • Ramsgate UK • 2/17/2013
This download is really good! I bought it just for Steinman and I would recommend it to anyone. The moves don't need as much practice as other downloads and it's a great price! 5 stars :)
Dom Matthews • Ramsgate-UK • 1/30/2013
Such a good effect! Well worth the money! The trailer is outstanding and the tutorial is easy to understand! 5 stars with ease!
Jordan • USA • 1/23/2013
This trick is amazing. Such a simple move that is so visual. I love this trick. Took me a while to get it down. I still have a problem with one move but I'm working on it. My fingers got bruised from doing this trick all the time. Great trick. Must buy. I am really glad I bought this trick.
Noro • Slovakia • 1/10/2013
This is the very easy trick. Splicer is very cool but easy. I love the two changes from Splicer! Thats UNBELIEVABLE!
Benjamin Noxfeld • Sweden • 1/5/2013
Beautiful changes and great explanation.
Steinman is a bit harder than Suchong, will take about a week to master completely. I came up with plenty of variations with Suchong, as well as an almost impromptu version of splicer. A great download! Buy it now.
Mohammed Akil • Syria • 12/29/2012
The best two changes ever, and very creative.
dylan ryan • ireland • 12/28/2012
I personally bought this effect for the colour changes and it was worth every penny. Zach teaches everything in such detail. I highly reccomend this effect no matter what the reason is you may be interested. You will not be disappointed.
Kyle • Somewhere in the world • 12/28/2012
Amazing trick! Excellent tutorial and BRILLIANT idea! Splicer is fun to practice, not to hard to learn and looks awesome! Good job Zach! 5 stars for sure! ;)
Frank Fontaine • Rapture • 12/25/2012
Bioshock meets magic! Buy it, would you kindly?
Adam • United States • 12/18/2012
Amazing! Excellent tutorial! Great job, Zach!
Do • Vienna • 12/17/2012
Splicer is another awesome effect by Zach! It's really one of the best effects on the Wire! This download is really worth the price. The explanation is in full detail and HD. Great job! ;)
Anna • USA • 12/14/2012
Zach Mueller has done it again.
He teaches in good quality video and explains everything very thoroughly.
Steinman color change 1 & 2 is easy but truly amazing to look at.
Been practicing while watching Zach and because he is a great teacher I'm really getting it.
Jahid • London • 12/13/2012
Like all Zach products, the moves are taught really well in great detail. Overall just a great download.
Philip Alexander • U.K. • 12/10/2012
Two awesome color changes with an excellent tutorial to match. It's Zach, so it screams quality.
Steinman is my favorite. The fast, quick one is better than the slow one, but if you're 1 on 1 with someone and do the slow one, then it's extremely visual and as Zach says, it's mind-melting. And Suchong is pretty cool in it own right as well. You probably won't use it as a color change, but in the blank deck routine, it is pretty cool. Overall, it's one of the best things I've bought on the Wire, and at only $5.95! It's a steal. Just buy it - you won't regret it!
Saad Khan • Athens, GA • 12/7/2012
This download is worth the price just for the Steinman color change alone. I don't even own a blank deck or plan to own one (which is required for the overall Splicer effect), but despite that I feel I got my money's worth from the two color changes alone, and the principles behind Splicer can be applied to different effects as well.
Valdimar Jenko • Horsens, Denmark • 12/4/2012
The only reason I bought it was because the 2 color changes look amazing. When I bought it I was thinking ''Man I hate blank decks tricks! I'm never gonna use that.'' When I saw the explanation of the blank deck routine, it makes me wanna buy a blank deck now and try it out!. I recommend this to everyone!
Apple • California • 12/1/2012
Zach has done it again! Great trick! When I saw it, in less than 10 seconds I decided to buy it.
Stephen • USA • 12/1/2012
This is a must buy! I bought this trick mainly for Steinman and I was not disappointed. It is somewhat easy and very useful. My only complaint is that it would have been helpful to have an over the shoulder view. All in all, 5 out of 5!
Luke • Poland • 11/29/2012
Great trick, moves for a great price. I enjoyed every last bit of it. Finally I get to do a different, believable color change. It's like I don't wanna do Erdnase anymore after this. :)
I ended up modifying the Steinman change a little bit, but to my advantage. Loving this. Zach takes the time to really teach you this inside out. That was a great buy.
Carson • Canada • 11/28/2012
From Dan and Dave Buck's neutral voice to Jason England's charming voice, I find Zach Mueller's tutorials very entertaining and informing. The two colour changes are amazing and worth the price, including the routine with the blank deck.
Arman • Illinois • 11/26/2012
This is a really great product. You're learning a great routine and two powerful color changes. What more can you ask for $6.
Zach Mueller is a genius at making really visual yet knacky moves, but I love a challenge. I think if you're really put the effort into it and get a blank deck, this is perfect for you.
Ollie • London • 11/24/2012
I don't perform Suchong much on the streets, but Steinman gets amazing reactions. Don't own a blank deck, so I haven't tried the Splicer routine yet. Overall: excellent.
He is an amazing teacher and very funny. Well done, Zach!
Fritz Charleston • Denton, TX • 11/15/2012
Easily my favorite Wire release by Zach.
Thoroughly taught, excellently produced, and some great effects.
Steinman is, in my opinion, the real backbone of this release and makes Splicer worth the price of admission.
Splicer itself is pretty cool, but it does require a blank deck, which may turn some people off.
In short, buy it for Steinman, the rest is gravy.
Samuel Chernow • USA • 11/13/2012
Not much to say except for this: Get it. Best trick ever.
Bryce Huckabay • California • 11/11/2012
From buying every single one of Zach's downloads, I knew he would impress me again, so this is my review of Splicer.
Steinman: Steinman is probably the only thing on this download that you should practice more of, only because of the handling, but with enough practice, it looks really cool. As Zach says, two versions are taught, I like the slow one. Only because it's just so mind-boggling, and it likes you're just nothing and you're just waving over the deck. I give Steinman a 9/10.
Suchong: Suchong is probably the most easiest thing on this download only because you don't really do much. It's kinda like your just gripping the card and changing it. I got it down immeadiatly after watching it, no mistake. But, it's a very cool, flourishy change that's easy to do, so Suchong deserves a 9/10.
Splicer: First of all, yes in Splicer, you are REQUIRED to have a blank deck. But, that's ok, I hope they're not expensive. Splicer incorporates the two color changes together into one blank deck routine. I really like this, Zach teaches you a bunch of ways to use it and teaches a bunch of ways to use the blank deck (and I can't tell you the reason.) too. From beginning too end, Splicer is special. So, nice job Splicer, you got a 9/10!
Quality: I really fricken wanna know where Zach gets his cameras. They're just fricken too much HD, it's unbelievable. 9/10.
Instruction: Zach really knows how too teach. He teaches it so very well that I'm starting to believe he uses a script. 9/10.
Humor: Just reminding you, when it's Zach Mueller, it's always gonna be funny. 9/10.
Overall: So in conclusion, Splicer is really great download, I had no problems with it at all. I highly recommend you buy Splicer, watch it, love it and enjoy it. So, I'm giving Splicer a BIG FAT 10/10!
Tyler • VA • 11/11/2012
Well done. The angles are really tricky but when done right to one person, they are mind blown. The effect Splicer is great on camera and probably only good for one person in real life max. BUY IT NOW
Guy • Israel • 11/7/2012
I love the way you explain it. You're very funny. The trick is amazing!
Charlie • USA • 11/6/2012
Amazing! Well worth the price.
Julian G • NYC • 11/5/2012
Absolutely love this download and Zach's corny jokes. This is an incredible piece of magic for the price of 5.95. Two incredible color changes and a killer trick. I would rate this 10,000 stars if I could. Best download I've bought all year.
Charlie • UK • 11/5/2012
This is an amazing trick. You can very well learn parts of it easily and some parts more difficult. Part of the trick is easy to figure out, and part of it is just pure genius. Good job, Zach!
Matthew Bixby • Granville, NY • 11/4/2012
How much visual goodness can this guy come up with? Every download he releases, I buy and I have so many eyegasms!
Damo • Brisbane, Australia • 11/4/2012
Snappy and Clean.
Tom • London, England • 11/4/2012
I could perform this really easy, and although some of Zach's other tricks can be rather technical, this was easy and effective!
Cheryl • Singapore • 11/4/2012
Another great product by Zach. His amusing style of teaching keeps my eyes glued to the screen for the entire hour. His downloads are HD and worth every cent and the move itself is simply so beautiful. The method is ingenious. Definitely worth getting.
IKA • BC Canada • 11/4/2012
It's a great effect but honestly, I bought this because it's Zach, and Zach's entertaining.
Benjamin • Melbourne, Australia • 11/3/2012
Absolutely loved this download! As always, Zach is very detailed in his teaching and always hilarious to watch... keep up the terrible jokes, we love em :)
As for the move itself, I absolutely love Steinman, it is a beautiful little colour change that I will definitely be practicing to perfection! Zach, keep making these Wire releases, they are just getting better and better!
Harry Gelber • USA • 11/3/2012
This is a fantastic download and these two changes with the blank deck routine are absolutely amazing. Good job, Zach!
Jakub Sege • Slovakia • 11/3/2012
I just love it.
Ben • UK • 11/3/2012
I'm feeling weird, so I left this review. Love this! Reasonably priced, amazingly taught, some funny jokes, and two amazing color changes. Each change will fool people! I'm not a fan of blank deck routines, but even I loved this!
Daniel Wright • UK • 11/3/2012
All of your effects are the best things on The Wire. Haha, I have bought all of them and and it has helped me loads. Love you, Zach!
mr_nismo • Perth, Australia • 11/3/2012
How could you not warm to Zach's warm and fuzzy aura of illusion. His witty teachings are a blessing in a world dominated by drab and deary dinosaur magician videos from L&L. This sleight is so visual it will blow away your audience (it will need practice till you drop, then pick yourself up and practice again). The video trailer says it all. A must buy for any cardist that likes to add flare.
Nick • Australia • 11/3/2012
This looks so good! It literally looks like the card morphs into the new card, courtesy of a great method.
Jamie • Seattle • 11/3/2012
This was a great download, and well worth the price. Steinman is a little tricky, but once you get it, it is a great move! Suchong is a very well thought-out spin on a nice sleight. And the main event - Splicer - is just wonderful! Great teaching and quality! I want those cards...
Ziggs • Singapore • 11/3/2012
Well explained with little puns here and there, which keeps everything alive. A very convincing colour change. Worth the money. 5/5
Crow • Woodbury • 11/3/2012
Both changes are well taught, good and shot in HD. Zach's little jokes every now and then keep things fresh and fun. Great download - well worth it.
