It's a marker - all artline markers dry out Smile

I was just stating that I am an idiot because I left the lid off for 24 hours.

Hey music - get off that fence! Got mine extremely quickly - great to have a homegrown item - and all in a pretty little box too...nice one Al (did you pick the ribbon yourself?!).
I won't fill up this thread with a huge review, especially as I haven't field tested it properly yet, but I'll certainly back what Luke and Kambiz have already said. It really is a mighty sneaky little prop, and all the time looking sooooooooooo innocent. It truly gives you a great real time p**k with no heat on you. You're just doing the stuff you would naturally do. There's certainly nothing obvious about the pad that shouts gimmicked to anyone curious enough to poke around.
Will post more when I've taken it out and about.
Go you mental Aussies!

The deal breaker for me is having to purchase replacements.
So when the markers run out, I have to purchase new ones?
When the pad runs out I will have purchase re-fills?

This could run into hundreds of dollars (IE: each marker cost $25 alone).
I was going to purchase the Wasp, but I am considering the Sniper Pad instead, but the Wasp may be the better item (for me at least).

Hi Jerry,

Just to be clear, the only refills required are blank notepad pages (much like any other pad) and pens.

No need to purchase refills for gimmicks or complete pads. Spare gimmicks are offered more as a service.

If you don't want to buy new pens there are ways around this too although a bit more work.

Cheers,
Al

Hi Al,

Can a Sharpie be easily modified to work with the Sniper Pad? PM me if that would be more appropriate. Thanks.

Yes this is fine. I will PM you as to why I changed to this particular Artline marker.

I used the Sniper Pad today on my 4DT routine and it worked beautifully!!

No need for Shaxonization...just give the billets to the spectators, they place the billet with the necessary info in the envelopes themselves and you're in for a treat of a miracle....

Thanks again Al!

G'day Kam,

Throw another prawn on the barbie mate! Smile

Great to hear about the Sniper out there doing the work she is paid to do. Nothing makes me happier than to hear she is being used to her full extent and is providing all the boys with that familiar warm & fuzzy feeling of pleasure. Smile

REMINDER

*** ONLY 3 DAYS LEFT to pick up a Sniper Pad at the discounted price and with free shipping.***

Price goes up on 1 Nov, best to order now.

Cheers,
Al

My review - short and sweet...it's terrific.

Clear, thorough instructions, solid thinking for handling -- to notch.

Al,

I received your sniper pad on Monday and I have to say, wow is the only word that comes to my mind. I have used other peek and impression pads before and they gave me the same problem you spoke of, not always showing an impression, looks to suspicious etc. I found more and more that in order to do this type of magic I was having to rely more and more on my sleight of hand skills, thank God for having a strong card and coin background. These other products were becoming more and more a waste of money, time and effort and I went back to Thirteen Steps to relearn and concentrate on pencil reading...phhhhhtttt.... yeah right.

But the sniper pad... I knew from the moment I saw it, this was different. I knew that since it was part of the Outlaw stable this was a well thought out and executed quality effect and a must have. I knew this is the answer. It looks deceptive and is deadly. I LOVE THIS!!!!!! Thanks a million!

Peace and Godspeed to You and Your Family

For those who are waiting, relax. I order from all over the planet and like many of you, I also am waiting for my Sniper.
What I can tell you is that out of all the places I have orders shipped including England and the notoriously slow Canada, I have found that Australia takes the length of a Bible. I don't know why. It is what it is.

Yes indeed. Smile

Sadly our poor old Koalas and Kangaroos have a hard time lugging all those postal bags of heavy Snipers equipment around...
