Fate – Manuel Llaser
Available from your favourite Murphy’s Magic supplier, dealers contact www.murphysmagic.com
Price: £20 (approx)
The Open Prediction (OP) plot is a classic in card magic, and there have been lots of variations by some of magic’s greatest magicians. Fate is Manuel Llaser’s offering.
Having performed Ed Marlo’s version for many years myself I was intrigued to see how Manuel’s handling differed. The short answer is very little. The setup is virtually the same and the only main difference is the switch at the end. A sleight is needed to achieve Manuel’s version whereas the original is much easier. Manuel’s version does actually look cleaner but the switch is a little knacky and has some angle issues.
You are supplied with a booklet describing the handling and also a link to download a video performance and explanation.
If you like the OP plot then this is worth a look.
