I'm really interested in buying double cross by mark southworth.
Anyone got opinions on this?
Also does anyone know where I could go and pick it up from instead of buying it online as it would go well with what Iv got for tomorrow night!?!

I've been guilty of learning an effect overnight and performing it. For example, I went over to Dave's Killer Magic Shop and asked Dave to recommend something that I could learn quickly and perform at my church. We were going to have the kids in the service with us and I wanted something that could play well to a very large group of families. He recommended the McCombical deck. I learned it overnight and performed it that weekend. It played well, but I have to admit that my presentation wasn't exactly polished. You can watch it on the Internet and judge for yourself. I'm not sure that I recommend learning a trick so quickly and trying to perform it with any level of excellence. Just my two cents.

I had to refresh my memory and searched DoubleCross.
Powerful effect and it does seem to fit the, "can be learned and performed in 15 minute category".

I would practice first with a few friends and maybe random strangers in a casual setting before doing it at a paid venue...the backstage performance showed the performer struggling a bit before his audience of musicians from The Tonight Show. Even though he couldn't completely make the X vanish from his arm, the reappearance on the spectators palm was reason enough to make this effect a possible purchase for me!

I've done that before lol! I did that with a wooden block called Telekinetic Timber, however I received it in the mail on the same day as my local SAM meeting took place. Worked like a charm.

Also saw Kreskin do the same routine on TV.

If you don't live near a magic shop, or live near a magician willing to sell his Double Cross...then an on-line purchase is your only alternative.
