Indexpress by Vernet Magic

From the greatest minds of the magical art, Indexpress is born, making it the fastest pocket billet index that was ever created!

Wonderfully created utility device that will make it possible for the performer to find the freely thought of card the fastest way, using a billet index! Yes, this is an improved version of any other billet indexes that was created over the centuries. Plus a full routine.

breakdown:

what: utility device

type of magic: strolling, close-up, stand-up or stage

item: 2 pocket billet index (downloadable instructions and PDF)

skill level: intermediate

extra expense: optional (packs of sugar, drinking glass)

the instructions::

PDF (English & Spanish, 5MB) is 3 pages of beautifully illustrated and clearly written instructions including:

  • introduction of the effect and history
  • preparation
  • Michel’s 30+ year old opening routine fully explained, including:
    – materials
    – preparation
    – performance
  • different methods of handling

on the 26min long downloadable video (link and password on packaging) 295MB (English speaking, Spanish subtitles):

  • Michel’s live performance in front of an audience of his “invisible deck” routine, using Indexpress.
  • Explanation (set up Indexpress and demonstration of the “invisible deck” routine)
  • The Index (examples of how to find the right billet)
  • Other switches (besides the one used by Michel discussed and demonstrated!)
  • History (going back to 1923, looking at books and different creators over the years to see where the ideas were coming from, how was an “index” improved over the years, and now how we get to this fastest billet index method by Michel.)

additional thoughts:

Loved everything about Indexpress, although the accent and scattering during the instruction between Michel and a young helper of him, trying to speak English was a bit confusing. I think another, same level creator/master magician talking with Michel about Indexpress probably would had been much more fascinating and enjoyable. However, everything is told, demonstrated and credited in the video! Also, I wished to see a bit more close-ups during demonstrations on the props, and the Spanish subtitles were covering up details.. but still, I understood everything fully.
