|The thumb tie is a classic that’s kind of fallen out of fashion, which is a shame. There is a whole section devoted to this effect in Tarbell, and it’s for good reason. If you ever see Mac King, you will see this effect absolutely kill.
Joe Monti brings us an entertaining routine with a fresh ending, and a diabolical method. He’s been performing it for 25 years, and now he is offering it to us. I wish more magicians released their polished work, and not just their latest creation.
This routine is near perfect. It packs small, plays big, needs no preparation, fits in your pocket, and makes your spectators the stars! The method can also be used for all the traditional thumb tie penetrations, though Monti does not use them in his routine.
The DVD itself is well produced, and Monti is a good teacher. There are multiple performance clips, and Monti covers every little theatrical and technical detail. He even teaches a bonus card move that is very visual and versatile.
It’s been a while, but I hereby give this product the ever coveted FIVE STAR rating! Congratulations to Joe Monti for releasing a real gem to the magic world!
