In another thread the idea of moves possibly drawing attention to themselves or setting off a "you just did something sneaky" in the spectators' mind is under discussion. I think this is a GOOD move i.e. it accomplishes its goal and doesn't draw attention to itself. There should be high conviction that the outjogged card is what it's supposed to be.

Marlo's Convincing Control achieves something similar i.e. the selection seems to be in view until the end when, in actuality, it's long gone.

Nice handling all around. I'm going to revisit the Flexible Switchout. To my shame, I never learned it. Looks very useful.

Magicfish -- Excellent job with this! I have been using this sleight for quite some time -- to my mind it is more convincing than the Convincing Control! I learned this move from Steve Youell several years ago -- he incorporates a couple of nuances that make the move seem even more fair to spectators (maybe he'll join in on this thread). I really enjoyed watching your work -- thanks for posting!

Thanks for the kind words Johnny.
I feel like the sleight looked better in the first clip than during the second clip, 1. I was sort of subconsciously showcasing it for our group, and 2. These are the perils of of the staring lens.
In performance I am engaging my onlookers at the moment of execution. But thanks to the friendly environment we have here, I feel like when I share a clip, I'm sharing a little something at a session we have all voluntarily attended. Such is the warmth Rudy Tinoco has created.

It doesn't surprise me that my long term acquaintance and, I hope, friend, Steven Youell, has given treatment to this Marlo creation. He has excellent taste in sleight of hand tactics.

I thank John Bannon for pointing me to this effective sleight.

It has an almost Krenzelian 'relaxed impossibility' to it if you know what I mean.

It is an outstanding move, but I think it's limited in scope-- it's not a utility move.
I do have a few tweaks but I've never yet seen Magicfish bungle a move. Ever.
And I've known him online for... 15 years?!?!? Holy Crap!


Lately I've been thinking of a few applications. As the ideas come (if they come)
I'll post some on the forum.

JohnnyNewYork-- have we met?  I'd love to have a pal named "Johnny New York".
I could add that to Johnny Dangerously and Eddie The Shank. [biggrin]

Magicfish-- don't have any doubt-- I'm your friend. I'd say that I'd take a bullet for you
but I've never seen your face! LOL

Perhaps a virtual bullet, then...

Nice effect Magicfish.

I thought that maybe you could try using the following control that looks consistent with the Flexible Swichout, for your own selection. You would have to slightly modify your handling. Just and idea. I don't know the reference of it, so if anybody knows, please post (sorry for the poor light and execution - I did this quickly last night ...).

Very nice Claudio.
I believe that is Tony Kardyro's.

Thanks for the reference and I did think you would know. I was first at a loss as I don't own (unfortunately) any Kardyro's book but a quick Google search came up with this below, and I do have the Vernon's book where I learnt it from.

Spread Turnover Switch

The secret addition of a card above another in a hand-held spread, made during the action of flipping the card face down in the spread seems to have been independently developed by Tony Kardyro and Henry Christ. See Kardyro's Kard Konjuring , 1955, p. 8 and Dai Vernon's Inner Secrets of Card Magic, 1960, p. 23.

But to get back to topic. Do you use Marlo's Flexible Switch Out in other effects? After watching your performance, I agree with some comments that it could be used in lieu of the Convincing Control without loss of conviction.

Looking forward to your thoughts on applications. I'm liking this move.
