The Cull Combo Pack

Save $5 when you purchase both The Roadrunner Cull and The Cull Continues streaming videos.


If you're just starting to learn, your best bet is to purchase both volumes together. You'll watch the entire Vol. 1 first to get an understanding of the technique. Then, the first half of Vol. 2 will perfect your understanding. Additionally, on Vol. 2, you'll watch a live workshop between Kostya and two students.

If you engage yourself with the information presented on this DVD, then you’re about to become a better magician.
— Michael Ammar
I’ve been doing the cull over 45 years and I can say after watching your DVD my cull instantly got better.
— Allan Ackerman

The best reason to purchase both volumes together is that the material on Vol. 2 is much easier to begin performing once you've mastered the techniques taught on Volume 1. Once you've mastered the tricks in Volume 2, you'll return to the first volume to learn the more difficult, reputation-making routines. In these two volumes, you'll learn not only the routine that fooled Penn & Teller, but a whole lot more!
