Beyond Stebbins by Craig Petty is just that, making it a must-have for any serious card magician. I was already working on some ideas around this stack but with this, I can push the boundaries even further.
What can I say? I was one of those guys that 'knew' about Stebbins from am early age but never really used it because I believed that it was too widely know amongst laymen & was too obvious. How wrong was I.....the added extra 'something' along with Craig's clear and concise instructions has elevated this tried & tested method into something really special. This is an absolute must for anyone new to magic AND the experienced pro (and anyone in between). Highly recommended.
Great project, lots of cool stuff with Stebbins taught. I also like that the "gaffed" deck part of this is only used in some of the routines taught. Also really like that there are a real variety of ticks here and some the magic is really visual and impelling, this is isn't just a compilation of similar tricks. My only gripe and I have this with all downloads is there are no time stamps so if i want to go back and re-learn the "Beyond ACAAN" effect for example i have a 3 hour video to search through which can become tedious. Other than that great!
as per usual Craig hits it out of the park with a in depth and hugely entertaining reimagining of something most magicians will have passed over early on in their magical journey. the stebbins stack is a vastly underused and overlooked principle that has not only had a new breath of life but a full resuscitation by Craig and this project at a whopping (nearly) 3 hours will give you everything you need to ever know about stebbins, combined with the extra that is delivered through the pack of cards you now hold a powerhouse of magical content in one purchase my only regret with this, is that I cant give it more than 5 starsWrite Review
