Inseparable Review

Inseparable is a very strange card trick. At the end, you're left with three playing cards that are joined at the sides, as if they haven't been completely cut during the manufacturing process. As Jay Sankey says on the accompanying DVD, it's an usual physical object and that sort of thing can result in particularly strong magic.

I prefer presenting Inseparable as a transposition effect instead of a sandwich trick. My reasoning is that the strange strip-o-cards is better introduced and explained, and then used in performing some magic, instead of being produced as a surprise finish. But the nice thing is that Sankey has provided what you need to present it either way, provided you use red-backed Bicycle cards.

There are no printed instructions included, everything is on the DVD. There's an hour of instruction on the disc, which seems like a lot for a relatively simple trick, but the extra material is worthwhile. Sankey demonstrates several different techniques and encourages you to play, or "jam," with the prop to create routines of your own. The video is well-shot and lit, and the menus are straightforward and simple to use. A very refreshing improvement compared to many magic DVDs that sacrifice usability in the name of "cool."

One chapter on the disc is particularly nice; in it Sankey discuses the evolution of, and the reasoning behind, Inseparable. If you've ever looked at a Sankey trick and wondered "What the hell was he thinking?," (and who hasn't done that?) now you'll be able to find out.

Inseparable is a well-produced product with quality instruction. If the trick appeals to you, don't hesitate to buy it.

When it comes to magic with playing cards, 'sandwich effects' (where a selected card appears between two other cards) have always been very popular with magicians and audiences alike.

INSEPARABLE takes the classic sandwich effect to an outrageous new level. The selected card not only appears between two other cards held by the spectator, but all three cards are found FUSED TOGETHER INTO A SINGLE STRIP OF CARDBOARD!

A truly LETHAL magic combination.

And if you add a two-card transposition phase to this already shocking effect, you have the kind of outstanding magic with which you can confidently end any show.

INSEPARABLE includes specially-printed Bicycle playing cards and an exciting full-length DVD teaching several different handlings and presentations.

Add this mind-bending card routine to your repertoire today!
