Geraint Clarke & Daniel Madison talk switches, how the project came to light, who it’s for and how these 17 gems can save you in those difficult situations…
SECTION 1- LLOYD BARNES
L&L Switch V1
Welcome to the concept of Lapless lapping. Whilst standing you’re able to switch a card from the table in the casual motion of picking up the card. You’ll want to start performing this instantly!
L&L Switch V2
Apply this variation to L&L v1 and you’ll arm yourself with a top-change-esque move that flies under the radar with your spectators.
By far the most convincing switch of a sandwiched card. This is the one move the mystery card plot has been missing.
The ability to switch a folded card on the table and then show your hands completely empty. Forget lapping.
Up and Under
A devious subtlety that opens up a myriad of different ideas, this switch allows you to change a card in full view clipped under your belt.
SECTION 2 – DANIEL MADISON
The master of the muck is back. A staple in the gambling world, this is a classic tabled-switch taken from the real world of cheating.
A powerful push of a folded card towards your spectator is all you need to switch out the card. Simple, direct & deceptive.
Flip an up-turned card face-down from the top of the deck and hand it to the spectator. In that action the card is replaced allowing you to produce it from anywhere before they even know the trick has begun.
A compact switch of 5 random cards for a winning Royal flush, in the simple action of displaying and turning the cards over on top of the deck.
Card Switch One
A dual action throw that disguises the moment of the switch behind a casual replacement on the table. We know how it’s done and we still can’t see it. Can you?
SECTION 3 – GERAINT CLARKE
A fluid masterpiece that’s as motivated as it is fooling. To the spectator the card never leaves their sight and is switched out during a sandwich routine.
Mistaken for a T. Nelson Down’s change, Athens is as mechanically satisfying as it is deceptive. This single card substitution allows you to switch a face up card as you’re placing it into your spectators hands.
An added piece of theory to make card-to-pocket more impossible. The dirtiest part of card to pocket is going to that pocket with a ‘dirty’ hand. With this addition, the spectator sees the card in your pocket before they’ve even signed their selection.
A casual, but fair switch designed specifically for card-to-mouth routines. They choose where to put their card in the fan, but it’s in your mouth before it’s been squared into the pack.
Bonus: Geraint gives tuition on how to perform card-to-mouth correctly based on years of performance experience to large groups. This is how you get away with it EVERY time.
Adding a flare to the classic deal switch from Marlo, Geraint shows you how to swap the selection during a spin.
