1.The new DMC ELITES V4 marked deck (now in forest green) is the latest iteration in the ongoing quest by Drummond Money-Coutts to create the most powerful deck of cards available for professional magicians today. The ELITES are a unique collaboration between DMC himself (star of National Geographic's CARD SHARK and BEYOND MAGIC WITH DMC, and of the upcoming Netflix series DEATH BY MAGIC) and designer and magic creator Phill Smith - architect of the revolutionary OPTICAL MARKING SYSTEM. This brand new DMC ELITES V4 is the most versatile, nuanced and advanced version of ELITES ever created.
For the first time ever, the DMC ELITES V4 is now printed by the iconic United States Playing Card Company on their legendary Bee stock, still the world's favourite choice. The cards will endure hours upon hours of professional use, and all faces are standard USPCC faces for minimum scrutiny or suspicion from your audience.
The cards themselves feature the latest revision of the unique OPTICAL MARKING SYSTEM (OMS), a powerful 'reader' system designed specifically for the use of magicians and mentalists (as opposed to many decks designed for the gambling world). The OMS has an ingeniously hidden marking mechanic that is readable with extreme speed, at great range and even in poor light. It hides the value and suit of the card in plain sight with no decoding necessary - the back of the card literally says the value and the suit. Despite this, you can still comfortably hand the deck to a layman, safe in the knowledge that even the most critical observer would not ever suspect, let alone detect, the secret markings. So subtle, in fact, is the OMS that with the first edition of ELITES - many magicians complained that they'd been sent an unmarked version!
Drawing on the feedback from many hundreds of performers, the OMS has evolved significantly over the years, and in this version the markings are located in all four corners for the very first time - welcoming lefties into the ELITES family. A second quantum leap now allows the markings to be read from a relatively slim spread of cards on the table - or even a fan of cards held in the hands. Finally, the deck also now features a very clear, one-way marking system, allowing for delayed reads and unlocking a whole new realm of methods. Each deck also comes with an instruction card that explains the markings visually - with no language limitations for international performers.
2. A MOMENT OF NUCLEAR FUSION IN CARD MAGIC"

3. The Passport to ELITES Pro Gaffs is a compact book covering 6 original, exciting effects using the incredible DMC ELITES Pro Gaffs deck, from the repertoire of creators Drummond Money-Coutts and Phill Smith. Pocket sized, in a unique Passport format, the book details the presentation and handling for each effect. It combines usage of the DMC ELITES marked deck with the new DMC ELITES Pro Gaffs deck (each deck available separately), to create powerful hard-hitting moments of incredible magic.
The book contains the following jaw-dropping effects:
Escapologist: Using the unique escaplogist cards from the Pro Gaffs deck, a tiny escape artist disappears from a cage and appears, as if by magic, on the face of a spectator's chosen card, whilst it is still in their hand.
Octomonte: Using a simple deceptive move, you invisibly and impossibly switch out four Kings for four Aces, right in the spectator's hand.
Hanging Cards: A huge closer from DMC's professional performances, Hanging Cards is an organic, easy-to-do routine that ends with an impossible prediction.
Dream Card: A freely named card is shown to be the only card in the deck with a different colored back - except of course that that's impossible, and it was always just a dream...
Dollar Down Monte: An introduction to performing money monte routines using the unique coin monte cards in the Gaffs Pro deck.
Handsfree Kit: A spectator finds his own freely chosen card from a deck that they shuffled and cut.
The book also includes a resources section with references for other hard-hitting pieces with the Pro Gaffs deck, and an introduction to how to use the cards themselves. The Passport to ELITES Pro Gaffs is an essential addition to the arsenal of any performer using the ELITES Pro Gaffs.
DMC ELITES V4: the greatest marked deck in a generation - now greater than ever.
