The Flip Shift by John Born - Book
Featuring Influenced and the Modern ACAAN
In Meant To Be, we discovered the power and versatility of executing a shift while taking the cards out of the box. This particular project shares a completely different card case shift that is extremely practical, versatile, and deceptive. I have been sitting on this for quite some time, and have finally decided to share these secrets.
If you enjoyed the techniques, effects, and thinking featured in Meant To Be, The Flip Shift serves as a perfect companion. In fact, the technique highlighted within these pages offers several new advantages that a performer may find attractive:
- This can be done with any deck of cards. There are no edge-markings, shaved cards, or any other system that may be used to create a reference point during execution.
- There is not a hole in the box. Though a slight modification is still needed, it is not something a spectator would see and consider gaffed (as would be found with some previous methods). This modification can easily be made in two seconds (impromptu).
- No dumping action. This technique has a sure grip and load, increasing reliability and stability during execution. This is also much easier to execute for the average performer.
- Improved angles of execution and moments of misdirection. The Flip Shift is definitely a strong tool for memorized deck workers interested in "jazzing" as it gives instant access to any card named, or any portion of the deck.
As a bonus for those that have my previous book, I share how to execute the Meant To Be system with a completely normal, unmarked deck of cards. Please note, this is not a full description of the system, and will only make sense to those that have read Meant To Be.
The Flip Shift is a "must have" tool for anyone interested in taking memorized deck work to the next level.
