I came across this Ace Assembly in Dr. Daley's Notebook.  He based it on a sequence of Sam Horowitz's.  I had to do a fair amount of tinkering to get at what I think he recorded.  Would love feed back.

Thanks, Rick

Nice job there Rick..

I do a couple of Ace Assembly's both are from Darwin Ortiz called The Brush and Jazz Aces. Darwin had the idea of doing an ace assembly routine in which he shows the audience how he practices a slight of hand move called The Brush.

In other words he has a reason to do the ace assembly i.e he shows how he practices The Brush.

I also dig your close-up pad, is that Pattrick's ?

All the best,

Rick-

Nice execution, but to be honest, I don't care much for the way the effect unfolds.  Laying the aces down with 3 "X" cards just to then pick them up and shuffle them back into the deck isn't something that makes sense to me.

There are some older versions of effects that when compared to the more recent handlings look clunky.  This, to me is a good example.  Much better methods, clear and economical are available.

Again, nothing against your performance or presentation.  You did it very well indeed!

But you asked for opinions.

Mind Phantom, yes a Patrick's mat, he makes such incredible ones.  RayJ, your posting are typically spot on.  I am highly enamored by the method, so much so that its hard, but inevitable, to agree with you.

There is great value in learning older methods and then comparing/contrasting them with the new. I would love to go back in time and show some of the old guard Invisible Palm Aces. They'd freak out. They'd love the clarity, the economy. But there are many variations that play equally strong.

If you get the opportunity, do it for some laypeople. Maybe it will play better to them! Again, you did it very well!
