First off I don’t normally review magic items but I feel this device is well worth a review Please bear in mind I have only had this device a day so far but can already see many applications for it. It’s very deceptive and the switch is so fast. There is a little noise during the switch but this can be covered by just sliding the cup to one side on a wooden table so it’s really no big deal. The tutorial has 8 routines and ideas for using the cup. I will definitely be using this for many Mentalism routines. The gimmick is very well made and of course can be used to switch billets including folded card which really appeals to me as in my mind makes the illusion stronger. I’ve used the Kennedy Mystery Box for years and this cup will also become a favourite 5 Stars in my opinion and as they say only limited by your imagination.
Switch cup by Jerome Sauloup is an ingenious method to switch a folded card or small object. When I first watched the demonstration I thought it looked amazing, and it is. I loved his 'Choice' trick which I perform regularly. I received mine yesterday and have been playing with ti ever since. It is pretty simple to perform but I would say it needs a little practice to get the 'movement' convincing and accurate. If you don't nail it there is a risk that stuff might show. The way I deal with this is to create a distraction as I do it, meaning that if I don't get it exactly right I have a few seconds when for example the spectator is opening a prediction inside an envelope. I display a double blank card in my phone cover with the word 'prediction' written on it. They choose a card (the whole deck is blanks) and they give it to me. I fold it into quarters and drop it into the bowl. I then ask them to remove my prediction, which reads; "you will choose the nine of diamonds and the jack of clubs'. I look shocked and say; 'oh...TWO cards? Ah. Of course in the meantime I have done the move with the bowl. They take the folded card and unfold it. It is a split card with the two mentioned cards on it! This is easy to do, even for me and knocks people dead! You'll love it. I recommend this trick.Write Review
