Does anyone have any advice on Jumbo Rising Cards? I've heard the Contento piece is the best but I haven't been able to find them and I'm not sure that I want remote controlled operation anyway. Does anyone have a self-contained method that they like?

The Contento model is excellent and I have it and recommend it. I made my own Jumbo Devano Deck for a specific routine and it works great. There is one that has a non electronic gimmick built into the case which allows you to use an ordinary jumbo deck. I believe it's from Sweden and was available from Hank Lee.

I tend to stay away from the electro-mechanical marvels.

I use a very old Al Baker jumbo rising card methodology. The routine I actually use is the version that Ken Brooke developed (Ken was using the Al Baker idea and modified the routine). Ken called it the “Nemo Jumbo Rising Cards”. Either the Al Baker or the Ken Brooke version is great for stage, platform, club, and parlor work. They are very low Tec and are almost foolproof with very little to go wrong. The best part is that there are no batteries to replace!

I made, and use a lot, the method that is credited to Hathaway. It is a houlette suspended on a pair of ribbons. I hold one side, the audience member holds the other. With jumbo cards I put a hidden pully mechanism to shorten the distance required for the pulling of the gaff. This works flawlesly every time....recommend it highly. Also, unlike with most methods using the same gimmick, it is hidden at all times inside the ribbons. I make 4 jumbos rise.

Jeeze I made a jumbo rising card trick...the simplest oldest method, my 6 yr. old daughter does the dirty work while hidden in the table which the cards are sitting on and it works great!
