Pocketed Review

I just finished reviewing Chad Long's Now Look Here and decided to tackle this one next since the effect is very similar. I'm not going to compare the two, but if you like this sort of thing, I think both would be worth checking out.

The one thing I will repeat from the Now Look Here review is that I feel very strongly about people not turning this into something that makes the audience look dumb. This not only makes you look like a jackass, it reinforces the idea that magicians are a bunch of jerks... which hurts all of us.

As is usual with Bob Solari products, he has opted for clever gimmicks over sleight of hand. All you really need for this one is a very simple control.

You will need to make a minor alteration to your jacket. You won't need a professional seamstress and the alteration won't affect the use or cleaning of the jacket.

I think the best thing about this effect, which isn't really covered in the product description, is that the "card to pocket" setup can be used for any card to pocket routine. If the effect doesn't suit you, just the work on a no-plam-required card to pocket is worth the meager price of this product.

Manufacturer's Description:

A card is freely selected [no force] from a deck. This selected card is signed by the spectator. This signed card is returned to the deck and the deck is mixed. The performer snaps his fingers over the deck and states "your card has vanished from the deck". Performer points to his right jacket pocket and says "wouldn't it be amazing if your card was in my pocket?" Spectator is asked to reach into this pocket and remove the single card. Spectator removes the card and turns it over.

Printed on this card are the words, "your card". Performer apologizes for the bad joke and says, "seriously, wouldn't it be amazing if your card was in my pocket?" Performer points to his left jacket pocket. Spectator agrees and reaches into performers left pocket and removes a single card. Printed on this card are the words, "sorry... Wrong Pocket". The performer points to his jacket breast pocket. Performer shows his hand empty and removes a single card which he hands to the spectator. This card reads "No! The inner pocket!".

Performer shows his hand completely empty and reaches into his inner jacket pocket and visibly removes the selected signed card!

Specially constructed props makes this miracle a reality!
Important: This effect requires NO PALMING!
Alternate ending also discussed.
Bob has been personally using this effect in his walk-around and table hopping work and the reaction has been phenomenal!

Complete with all necessary gimmicks and specially printed cards, photo illustrated instructions.
