BLACKOUT! is a new utility coin that allows you to perform ridiculously clean vanishes, changes, productions and transposition miracles... right under your spectator's nose! BLACKOUT! is machined to precise specifications by master craftsman Roy Kueppers. It then goes through a second and third stage of meticulous handcrafting and treatment by Mike Platt. The result of this laborious process is a unique gimmick that brilliantly overcomes the inherent problems of combining "BA" with the unforgiving conditions of close-up coin magic. After well over a year of excruciating trial and error, Brian & Mike Platt's BLACKOUT! is here! Perform in any black (or even partially black) shirt, pants or jacket. Comes complete with full length DVD, and everything you need to perform ridiculously clean, impossible looking coin magic.
"It is not until now that there has been such a fantastic gimmick on the market... I'm a perfectionist and I love Blackout!" -- Mickey Silver
"I think you have solved the problems (with 'BA' and coins) and opened up a whole new dimension in Coin Magic. There is a special thrill magicians get in knowing that they can hide something in plain sight." -- Gary Kosnitsky
There's been more noise out there about this than anything, and every bit of it is justified. None of it is an exaggeration.
This is incredibly insightful, deeply thought-out, beautiful work. Just one thing — the nine (9!!!) hours of video instructions made me keep putting off fully delving into it until I saw David of magicorthodoxy's review tip: Just watch Video 1 and Video 5 at the outset for a firm grasp of the subject. Then follow with the remaining 7 videos at your leisure for deeper dives from some renowned experts. Each of the vids is about an hour long. A completely fresh approach to cards. Craig's own preview video on YT basically tips the method because he wants you to be clear about what this is. It's so good that it only makes you want to buy it more. No sleights or memory work necessary, you can use it stacked or shuffled (although simple sleights or easy memory work only expand its range even further). For once, the hype is, if anything, an understatemment.
I am simply a hobbyist who enjoys some magic. And this deck is perfect for my "magic levels". It can do some effects that are not only very easy to execute, but most importantly mind blowing. Get this deck if you don't have it yet!
I am only a hobbyist, I won't call myself a magician. But I can tell you, this effect is amazing. Even my wife, which she doesn't like magic at all, she enjoyed this. Easy to perform and simply a great effect.
Jason Ladanye is second to none. And this DVD set just skims the surface of his talent. Great performances and great effects. The tutorials are in depth and are easily picked up with some practise. Highly recommended for beginners to advanced.
