Dex (Gimmick and Online Instructions) by Lloyd Barnes & Javier Fuenmayor
ANY CARD AT YOUR FINGERTIPS AS FAST AS LIGHTNING.
"Ferrari don't make playing card indexes, but if they did, they'd have created DEX."
In layman's terms, a Card Index is like a Rolodex for a deck of cards that secretly hides in one or multiple pockets. It gives the magician the ability to secretly retrieve a named playing card and "magically" reveal the card "from thin air" (or any other way they wish).
There are tons of indexes on the market but DEX breaks away from the race and stands in a league of its own and here's why.
Normally an index will have one or two great features but crucially at a cost...E.g. It's easy to use, but bulky. Or it's ultra fast but split into two pockets. Etc.
DEX is unique in that it takes all of the important features that magicians look for in an index and combines them into one...without compromise.
DEX is a full 52 card index that not only is lightning quick but it's also designed to be razor thin so that it can easily and seamlessly fit into skinny jean pockets. Its intelligent form factor means that it appears to be an ordinary, small, wallet.
But there's more.
No more fumbling around. The entire core of the DEX system revolves around a unique "no counting" system that means from the moment the spectator names a playing card, the magician has already instantly located the value of the card in their pocket. Meaning that you're able to be fully focused and present in your performance, instead of zoning out while you fumble around in your pockets. It's designed to work using your muscle memory.
Right now, take a moment...Think of a card and say it in your mind. The time it took you to read that sentence, follow the instruction and lock a card in is genuinely longer than it takes to find any card in DEX. REALLY.
Created by Lloyd Barnes and Javier Fuenmayor, DEX has been painstakingly designed and refined for over two years (Apologies to the 10's of thousands of people that have been following DEX production journey on YouTube for that whole time!), and together they've left no stone left unturned. From its durable nature, clever touches that give DEX its wallet silhouette form factor, flexibility, thin nature and even lightweight construction.
Every single DEX unit is meticulously assembled by hand and is constructed using a range of different materials that all seamlessly blend together to give you the world's most powerful and more importantly, practical playing card index ever created.
ONE MORE THING...
When you become a DEX owner, you're not just receiving the world's most sought after index, you'll also be receiving access to the most thorough index masterclass ever taught, with revolutionary never before seen tuition methods included.
We've split the DEX Masterclass into 5 primary volumes:
Volume 1: DEX Crash Course
Lloyd and Javier teach you every single detail, including all of their devious tips and tricks, that you need to know in order to become a DEX Ninja. By the time you've watched this through, you'll be pulling named cards from DEX quicker than you add kisses to a text message.
Volume 2: Card Tricks
This is our favorite volume. Lloyd and Javier are both known for being creative juggernauts and you'll understand why after watching Volume 2. Not only will they teach you how to perform some incredible tricks, they'll also teach you how to take some of the best card tricks of all time and make them even better! Imagine performing the Invisible Deck...without a fully gimmicked rough and smooth deck where the deck is fully examinable!
Volume 3: Not A Card Index?!
Due to DEX's unique design, it means that not only can any deck of cards fit within...but you can also use other objects such as envelopes, billets, Tarot cards and more. This section they'll teach you how to perform tricks that fool even the smartest magicians because they never knew you could use an index with some of these objects.
Volume 4: Collaborations
A small number of DEX units found their way into the hands of some incredible magic creators (Andrew Neiner, Jake Keane, Eric Stevens)and those guys came up with some truly creative ways to really turn DEX's volume up to 11. We know that some of you will love this volume the most.
Volume 5: Get The Most Out Of Dex
Lloyd and Javier have spent 1,000's of hours practicing and testing each other over video calls from opposite sides of the planet and whilst doing that, they discovered some MIND BLOWING practice techniques that literally trick your brain and fingers into becoming a master at using DEX in the blink of an eye. Without describing the
- 52 cards. One pocket. Even skinny jeans.
- Lightening fast.
- No counting.
- Lightweight. Thin. flexible.
- Rests easily in seconds.
- Easy to master.
- 1,000 tricks in your pocket.
A single blank card is placed in their hands. They name any card...a UV light is shone on the blank card and reveals the named card written on it.
Invisible Deck is often voted by magicians as the best trick of all time. Period. But it does have a fatal flaw...the deck can't be examined in any way by the audience. With DEX, they can even keep the deck!
NO SKILL NEEDED:
Imagine this. Any card is freely named, then in any location the named card is revealed...with NO PALMING AT ALL! - This trick was created originally for beginners but the effect and method is so ******* powerful and clever, we know for a fact that even pro's will be using this. It's the type of trick that makes both laymen and magicians do a chef's kiss!
A joker is taken out of the deck and placed to the side. Any card is named, the participant deals down and doesn't find their card. They find...a joker. In fact, every single card in the deck is a joker...all except for one card that was removed earlier which is somehow their freely named card. Everything is100% examinable.
INVISIBLE BRAIN BLIZZARD:
This may be single handedly the most powerful card trick ever created. This is exactly what happens...A deck is in full view. Any card is named. The deck is spread...that card is the only face up card. Not only that, it's the only odd backed card in the deck. And not only that...EVERY OTHER CARD IN THE DECK IS BLANK.
Normally this type of trick would be partially achievable with one or two unexaminable gimmicked decks and some decks switches. With DEX, there is just ONE easy and invisible "move"(that you probably already do) and the entire effect is finished method wise...before you even make the first reveal. And to top it off, EVERYTHING IS FULLY EXAMINABLE. It's actually hard to fathom just how truly impossible this effect is.
All of the above and so much more.
Heck, we even know one person who's been road testing DEX that uses it as their only EDC. They naturally take it with them anywhere and they're always ready to make any named card instantly appear anywhere. Anytime.
We believe there are two types of card magic; The type of card tricks that are in the realm of plausibility. Card tricks that can be achieved using math or quick sleight of hand...
And then there's Magic. The type of tricks that have no explanation.
DEX IS that difference.
Anyone can practice to perform tricks but a Magician creates Magic effortlessly.
