The Blurb

Lynx Magic brings you Hands Off Prediction, a magic trick that will fool both laymen and magicians alike.

The magician shows a deck of cards, being all different and in random order.

Then, the magician takes an envelope that contains a prediction and places it in full view on the table.

Next he hands the deck to a spectator and asks him to deal the cards, one by one, face up on the table, and to stop whenever he wants to (no force).

Incredibly the card that the spectator stopped at matches the prediction that is inside the envelope since the very beginning!

Keep in mind:

The Spectators can examine the deck.
The envelope is immediately shown empty after the prediction is removed.
Completely free choice (the spectator stops at any card).
No switching of the envelope
No switching of cards.
No gimmicked deck.
The magician never touches the deck.
Instant reset
Very easy to perform

Hands Off Prediction comes complete with the custom made gimmicks, full accessories and online instructional video explaining different professional routines, with the working professional close-up magician in mind.

My Comments

WHAT IT IS:
Effect with Props

HOW ACCURATE OR COMPLETE THE BLURB IS:
Sorry, the participants cannot examine the deck if you use the basic version.  I'm not sure even why that's included as a bullet point.  There is a version included that can use a regular deck, but it's a bonus, and that's not made clear.

WHAT’S NOT INCLUDED THAT YOU NEED OR NEED TO KNOW:
You need to supply your own deck of cards.

SUITABLE VENUES:
Close-up, Parlour

JHEFF’S JUDGMENT:
Apparently, the creators of this have never heard of something called the Koran deck as they have not only reinvented it but took it a giant step or two backwards and made it unnecessarily convoluted.  My conclusion is this: don't buy it.
