VERTIGO

The Blurb

Some years ago Rodrigo Romano delighted us with his effect Gilligan Prediction. Now he surprises us once again, with his new creation: VERTIGO.

Let’s imagine just some of the effects that are possible with VERTIGO:

A card, freely chosen by a spectator, coincides with the prediction made by the performer some seconds before. No forcing of cards. As simple as that: the spectator names the card and it is the same mentioned in the magician’s prediction.

Imagine a roulette: the spectator chooses any number, and it coincides with the number the magician predicted. The spectator chooses a character, a country and a letter (or something of any other category) and there is an astounding full coincidence with the magician predictions.

You will find many more ideas that will astonish your audience.

VERTIGO is a genius tool, not only useful in mentalism, but also for parlor, stage or close up magic.

Some of its advantages:

NO FORCING OF ANY KIND NEEDED
THE MAGICIAN’S HANDS ARE ALWAYS SEEN BY THE AUDIENCE
MAY BE RESET IN SECONDS
IT DOESN’T USE NAIL WRITING, SWAMI GIMMICK, OR ANY OTHER WRITING SYSTEM
NO SPECIAL PAPER USED
NO CLOTHING RESTRICTIONS, YOU CAN PERFORM IT NAKED
IT DOESN’T REQUIRE ELECTRONICS EITHER
THE GIMMICK IT USES WAS SPECIALLY DESIGNED FOR THIS EFFECT
PUT THE PREDICTION INTO A GLASS OF WINE OR A SMALL CUP OF COFFEE OR PUT THE PREDICTION ON A TABLE

What does the VERTIGO set include?

You will get a gimmick specially created for VERTIGO, more than 40 minutes of online instructions (in English and Spanish), routines and all the required materials to perform any of the described effects.

Jheff's Guide

WHAT IT IS:
Gimmick with routine(s) included

HOW ACCURATE OR COMPLETE THE BLURB IS:
The blurb is accurate, though I’d argue that if the gimmick were in the pocket then the hands will not be seen at all times.

WHAT’S NOT INCLUDED THAT YOU NEED OR NEED TO KNOW:
There is some one-time preparation but it involves filling out papers and inserting them into the gimmick.

SUITABLE VENUES:
Close-up, Parlour, Walkaround

JHEFF’S JUDGMENT:
This product was one that I had to wrestle with for quite some time as to whether it’s something that I can recommend, but I cannot deny that if there is a reason for you to hold a deck of cards for the routine, this well-made gimmick will serve you beautifully. Otherwise, in comparison to other similar gimmicks on the market, this one is not as easy to use or as practical when in the pocket.
