Hey dudes, SK here. I almost forgot today that there was a new 1-on-1 released (around Saturday in the UK), and i noticed this Diagonal Palm Shift, taught by Jason England, been hearing a lot of good things of Jason's previous 1-on-1's but i didn't get any of them because it didnt fit my sleight artillery. I've been lookin forward to Jason's teachings but didn't force myself to buy his previous 1-on-1's, when this came out i just had to buy it. I tell you why in a minute. || About the 1-on-1 || Expert card technician Jason England teaches the details and nuances of the classic Diagonal Palm Shift move - most notably found in S.W. Erdnase's classic book Expert at the Card Table - in nearly 35 minutes of detailed instruction. Basically a card control: method to steal a card or multiple cards intro a full palm. However, 35 mins of detailed instruction. Detailed is what we are looking at here. For one move to be explained for nearly 35 mins, thats another thing to take note - thus you should see there are fine points to consider in this move. || Quality || Don't worry, nobody has been dissapointed with T11's 1-on-1 qualities. For those of you who don't know, 5 stars. || Teaching || As it says on the description of the 1-on-1, nearly 35 mins of detailed instruction, that is not a lie. Jason goes through step by step basics of this move, then moving intro modifications, variations, angles, tips, further applications of this move. The teaching is amazing. Direct and Clear. Everything you should know about this move is taught and mentioned, so don't worry about it. It won't disapoint you. || Thoughts || I first came across this move when Ellusionist released the Shapeshifter DVD, Marc teaches briefly the Shift, along with his further applications to the move. Because it was so brief, i didn't get much learning experience from it, i tried it out a few times, it got too knacky, too uncomfortable, so i gave up on the move. But after watching the Shapeshifter DVD and seeing Marc perform this card control, i have been wanting to learn it, but i didn't have any good sources to learn it from properly. I tried forcing myself to learn from that DVD, but i noticed many problems, such as palming, etc. So i gave up. When T11 released this as a 1-on-1, i was saved. When i saw this move being executed, i thought this kind of sleight were only possible for people who have experience in palming cards, unlike myself the only palm i know and execute all the time is the Gambler's Cop. Other than that i knew no other palms and was scared to learn other techniques due to my small hands. But i was always interested in this move, jus couldn't learn from what i had. I love T11 1-on-1's, i love em to the pound. Each of them i love. And im suprised at myself making a review for the sleight i'm most scared of. So i'd thought i'd give this one a shot, see what i can learn from it, to my suprise, i learnt a lot. I've always wanted to learn palming, but like i said due to the fear of small hands i only learnt and use the Gamblers cop. My opinion, the teaching is very clear, for a person that hates palming, i love it. I love the technique taught, i love being able to see how its done close up for nearly 35 mins, i love being able to practice it myself. So dudes with small hands, do not worry. My hands can't hide all of the card, but i treat this like a Gamblers Cop, only the card is long way's, which is still cool, i can pull up my sleeves and go to my pockets with a card palmed as taught in the Shift. Angles on this sleight is good news, it is covered from most angles (except of someone was birdseye viewing you front top or behind - but that wont happen anyhow so don't worry). Large hands help, but small hands can also get the job done, jus takes work. Difficulty is hard to say, but for a person who can't palm a full card, i found this pretty easy to get down, as for perfection, long road ahead. This sleight will definately be next to the Gamblers Cop. || Conclusion || I rate this 5 star soley because of my personal needs, i have been wanting to learn a sleight, which i can and will use, which i will enjoy practicing. My opinion, if you're looking to improve card control, don't hesitate to take a peak at this sleight to see if it works for you, if you have other ways of stealing a selected card or multiple cards then, good. Most if us here have bought Ricky Smith's Cherry Control, its somewhat on the same line in terms of application to this move, that gets the job done too - but its personal preference like i said. The price for this sleight you ask? I knew T11 would give me quality for something i've been wanting to learn and use, finally it's here, so i didnt think price was a problem. In all seriousness, i believe the price was worth it. Why you ask? Because i expected to learn the move from quality teaching, and i got it. You can learn from books, not a problem, but not all 35 mins of (personal) instruction will be found in books. Alright. Chou nah Uleh.
