IN A BIND is so visually arresting you'll have to remind the audience to blink! Display a small spiral bound memo pad and a deck of cards. You pick up the notebook and explain that you're going to act as a magician AND a mentalist.
You proceed to openly write a prediction down in the pad. A spectator now selects a card and then returns it to the pack. You now explain that a mentalist would simply PREDICT the card selected and a magician would have to FIND it. With thatyou begin to slowly rub the spiral binding of the notebook against the deck. Suddenly one card, from the middle of the pack, literally becomes BOUND within the spiral coil! When the pad and card are turnedyou have written the correct name and, of course, the bound card is the selection!
You have to see this to believe it! The card is truly bound among the sheets of paper in the pad - The deck is legitimate and everything can be examined - IN A BIND can be performed at any time during your routine - This is SO cool looking; you'll be as amazed as your audience!
