Signed Card in Spectator's Pocket: SCISP by Zach Allen

This is a gutsy and exceptionally strong effect. Look out for this guy. He will be releasing more of his strong ideas.

I give this effect 1 star out of 5. Gutsy? Yes. However, when I define gutsy, I refer it as a level of risk the performer is willing to take in his own ability to perform a certain effect rather than relying on the careful participation of the spectator. There are two big moments that is completely out of performer's hands that can easily risk ruining the effect... all you need is a spectator that's either clumsy or fidgety. Although the instruction on the ebook is well done, the approach to the effect is down right horrible and extremely inefficient. I don't care if the handling of three cards are flawless to appear as two or vice versa, if the "gutsy" part of the effect is ruined, everything is ruined. Even if you know the method inside out, this is definitely NOT one of those sure-fire tricks that you can have a complete confidence on. It is not easy, and the risk related in order to achieve the effect is hardly worth it... knowing that there are better ways to do this. I do not recommend this at all. In fact, if I could, I would rather market my own version of a even better routine that's much more reliable and sure to create a reaction.
