I just bought this and gave it a try but I was only able to make it work up to a point. It's actually quite difficult and maybe even impossible for some people to do.

I don't necessarily have buyer's remorse and will actually give this a try when my wife gets home to see what she thinks, but I doubt that I'll ever be able to get this down to the point that Mario does in the video.

I saw this and the thing that stopped me was "why are you holding the deck of cards in your hands?"

I just had a look. One needs long-ish and supple fingers to perform the effect.

Sometimes you just order a trick and keep your fingers crossed.

I would love to see a live performance of this. It looks fun.

I'm actually amazed by the amazed looks on the audience's faces.

I've seen Mr. Lopez do incredibly powerful magic ... but this seems very weak to me.

Did you have an opportunity to show your wife? If so, her reaction?

I didn't buy this, I sort of figured it out from watching the trailer (at least I think I did).  I just did it for my girlfriend.  It is very workable, had to watch the angles a little bit.  May need a really good presentation though, otherwise it's a little underwhelming to be honest.  The fact I have super slender and long fingers is a huge bonus for me.

Maybe if you marked the fingertip with a Capital "G" and commented on the problem with women..... the "G" spot is very illusive....  ROTFLMAO


...and what if you combined this effect with "BARE" to make the "G" appear on your female spectator's hand as a finale?!?

Yes, but it didn't impress her. I can only make the mark jump up to one finger.
I did it as a little prequel to my ambitious card routine. I showed the bottom of the deck to reinforce the initial condition of things, but it still failed to impress.
