I came a cross a wonderful trick in Harry's Tarbell, Vol 7. It's called Tony Noice's Card Transposition.

The description is pretty darned clear. I am, however, having a bit of difficulty with the color change move. It's a one-handed move, and I'm having a really hard time keeping the cards together sufficiently.

Does anyone here do this trick? I'd love to see a video of this move to make sure I'm doing it right. If anyone knows of a good video of this, can you point me in the right direction?

Thanks!

Ken

I don't own tarbell 7, but my state library does, as they're a 15 minute walk away I'll head down and check it out.

ahh, just had a look at it. Very cool stuff. There's a description in the double lift section of Expert Card Technique which uses the same snapping motion for the end bit of one of the double displays (although the cards there are not back to back). It also has some tips on keeping together unless I'm much mistaken.

I'm not much of an expert on this move, but I think John Carney also uses the change for a trick and can be shown doing it in this video as the last change:



He discusses it briefly in his penguin live lecture as well. I'll make a video if it's any help, but all I can personally say is practice, and try not to move the thumb around too much.

Not sure if this is any help, it's not the best version, there's definitely a lot of room for improvement here (my handling of the double etc...).



Although if you do have some 'leakage' after doing the change, if it's not too much, you might be able to immediately use the left hand to square it up.

Yes, that is pretty much how I'm interpreting the move. Thanks so much! That's all I really was looking for - to know I am not too far off base.

Cheers!

I used to do this trick, but I do not use the snap change.  I use the shapeshifter color change, which I find has much better angles and is easier to do without the cards splitting.

You can do a Stuart Gordon DL type move to reverse the sides of the two back to back cards. I'd use my free hand to turn over the tabled cards while the RH does the move. When they look back to the RH the change has been made.

Cool effect and nicely done Chi Han Yeo.

KenTheriot - I use the move you are talking about (I liked it ever since I was a teen and first saw it) but I modified it and do it a different way. I use it occasionally as a color change to produce one and sometimes 2 cards.

Thanks Cardshark Quixote,

So you use this double for the Noice trick? I would think it would change it rather a lot to do a turnover instead of holding the double in one hand and the deck in the other, then doing the change in the one hand.
