    Can't remember effect/technique

I rememeber I used to perform it and it was very clean, if I remember correctly the main technique/sleight in the effect could be applied to other tricks as well. The problem is that I somehow stopped performing it...

    I purchased the DMB Spread Control download by Dan and Dave Buck and have been going though it for quite a while now but I am facing some issue with one particular aspect of the control.

    What misdirection do you use in your magic tricks?

    I have practiced the classic pass for about 2 weeks, I can do it smoother and faster now. I am trying to replace the double undercut control. I want to know how could I distract audience not to look at my hands while I am doing the pass. And how do you misdirect audience generally?

    Camera trick or no camera trick? My response to Daniel Madison's camera trick video

    After watching Daniel Madison's video on camera tricks, I could not help but share my own thoughts on this subject. Although I do disagree with Daniel on this topic, I should mention that I have nothing but respect for Daniel and his work. This is just a disagreement. It is an opinion to help...

    New Card Trick

    I think I just created a new 2 card transposition and I want to submit it, but some of the moves involved are from other magicians, should I reach out to them and ask if I can submit this trick or not. One of the moves came from Luke Dancy and the other move in the routine was by Justin Miller...

    # of cards for Perfect Production

    Hello, People of Theory11, A buddy and I are trying to learn the Perfect Production and we are doing decently. The only difference is the sizes of our hands. My friend has tiny hands and I have medium-big hands. We were wondering if there was some general rule of thumb for the amount of cards...

    Most reliable way of doubling cards and to keep cards doubled without holding opposite sides

    So, I have dry hands and I live in a dry environment. As such, my cards slide very well against each other. However, this makes it difficult to keep doubled as well. I've tried the following: I've seen magicians simply pinch one side hard enough for the friction to keep it together, but it...

    Coin Sleights

    What is the "move" that Penn was talking about?

    This is Michael Vincent's second appearance on Fool Us. At 27:09, Penn said the way he put the cards down on the table is something every magician needs to learn. I watched this in 720p, pausing and stopping, and zooming in through the entire routine countless times and I could not figure out...

    How far can sleight of hand magic go?

    Sorry, I don't know how to word the question. Just curious, if all you have is a deck of cards (plus any everyday items like Sharpie and paper), is there a point where classic sleight of hand magic just cannot compete with card magic done with expensive props or gimmicks?

    An other way to use magic

    Hey guys! A lot of times I see magicians only sitting at home, practising and pracitsing, over and over again. But not many people actually go out and use the power they got. So I teamed up with a friend of mine and we tried to pick up girls using magic. Here is the link () if you want to see...
