I have a love hate relationship with packet tricks, but I loved this product.

You get a DVD, two instructors, examinable cards for most of the tricks, and two bonus effects. If you are an experienced beginner, you will get some use out of this. By experienced beginner, I mean that you can do an Elmsley Count, and Glide, which are the only two moves needed for one of the effects.

For the most part, the effects are clear, short, and easy for a layperson to describe later. I think most laypeople will just say “The backs of the cards changed colors” but that’s clear enough. If they remember more, even better.

John Bannon gives a great mini lecture on the advantages of packet tricks, how to present them, and when to use them in your work. Liam Montier explains the evolution of the effects, and the history of his collaboration with Bannon.

If you are a beginner, you’ll learn some great moves, and get several great tricks to use. If you collect this kind of material, you have a wealth of information. If you are a working professional, most of these effects happen all in the hands, end examinable, and instantly reset.

I can’t recommend this highly enough.

"An instant classic! Liam and JB's packet trick, 'Montinator 5.0' is one of the best and fooling packet tricks ever created. It fools me when I do it! I just can't understand why everyone isn't doing it!"

"Bannon and Montier hit the trifecta with these tricks. It's scary what you get when you combine Bannon's mastery and Montier's devious young mind. These amazing effects take Bannon's Bullet Party Count to new heights. They are cunning, practical and surprising as hell."
