REVIEW: The Glasgow Connection by Eddie McColl and RSVP Magic

RATING: 9.5 out of 10


PRICE: $30


Before this DVD, I had never heard of Eddie McColl.  Now, I am a huge fan and admirer of his unbelievable sleight of hand and great presentation.


This DVD presents nine routines, all of which are very impressive and many are magician foolers.  I will not mislead you that this is not beginner friendly work.  These are not self-working tricks and in order to be adept at these tricks, it will require most magicians to practice, practice, practice.  In fact, I think that when I catch up to McColl, I will have “arrived.”


Brief descriptions of the routine are listed below in the ad copy, which is pasted for your convenience.


The ad copy states:


“Eddie McColl is one of magic's best kept secrets. This DVD features 9 superb routines that will blow your audience away, with material that you will use.

The bonus Toolbox Section also features in-depth training for some of Eddie's signature handlings on the moves used throughout this DVD.

"His methods are ingenious."

"I've seen him perform for laymen and magicians with devastating effect."

"The best kept secret in Europe."

"This man crushed me with his unbelievable sleight of hand."

"He shuffles cards naturally with an incredible soft touch."

  Ginsburg Aces
- 4 Aces are produced from a shuffled deck using the Ginsburg Poke.

2.   Impossible Location
- The deck is shuffled by the spectator, and a card that is looked at is found in an impossible way.

3.   Merlin's Lost Ace Trick or McColl's Lost Aces
- A very direct 4 Ace Assembly.

4.   2 Card to Pocket Transposition or Bold 2 Card to Pocket Transposition
- A combination of Card to Pocket with two selections and the classic transposition.

5.   Stabbed
- The classic stab effect using another card, not a knife.

6.   Triple Location or Bold Triple Location
- 3 cards lost in a shuffled deck are found in an impossible manner.

7. Travellers or Bold Travellers
- The classic Vernon Travellers effect, all from one palm.

8. Shuffle Trap
- An impossible two card transposition using riffle shuffles.

9. No Rollover Aces - 4 Aces are found from a shuffled deck -- not just the Aces, but four royal flushes as well.”


McColl performs each trick to spectators at a table and then explains and teaches the method.  There is also a “toolbox” section which teaches the moves you need to deploy to master McColl’s tricks.  The production quality of this project is very good and I have no complaints about the presentation or organization.


I really enjoyed being fooled and admiring pure skill and that is why I highly recommend this DVD.


Thanks to Murphy’s Magic for asking me to review this excellent product.

I had the pleasure of sitting with Eddie one night in Glasgow.  My brain has yet to recover.  He's that good.
