First of all---just get it! It's great!

He does an astonishing effect in which kings are going to find a selected card and they suddenly, with hands nowhere near the deck, change to aces and the kings are on the table. And the aces change to the selected card. I couldn't believe my eyes when i saw this.

There's a quick Triumph. I'm not going to say what happens, but you will like it. Also a bill scam and a bunch of moves and other stuff.

For then bucks, you are getting a lot of magic for your money

All of Jack Carpenter's material is solid. You can find hidden gems in all of his work. A lot of his work requires effort but the reward is worth it.

Yes, took me quite awhile to get his Impulse Change working well. And, like you said, the reward is worth it

Another vote for Jack. His stuff is great. His second dealing method is very cool. It's all about timing rather than a tiny brief. It's a strike with a huge brief that you'll never see due to the motion of the hand holding the deck. He gets criticized by some for moving the deck hand so much. But I think it's very practical and not as hard as many methods e.g. two card push-offs. Simon Lovell does a great two card push off second BTW.

The prototype of the Kings/Aces routine you talked about in the first post (King Swing) was contributed by Jack to my Card Corner column in The Linking Ring. It was in the August 2011 column and was called J C Aces. In the October 2011 column there's a variation by J.K. Hartman called JK Aitches that's excellent. I think it's a better handling than Jack's original. You can apply Hartman's handling to the first part of King Swing from the Murphy's lecture and finish with the aces become the selection which is a new phase added to the original JC Aces.

It's a great item!
