This is typical for me and highly legible as you can plainly see - no issues.

One little trick/hint is that I inserted 2-3 blank glued business cards to the inside (back) of the playing card box. This helps to keep the playing cards more tightly pushed forward, so the gimmick receives a better (more clear) imp.

I still use my Psupher often and it has never failed me...

It packs a very powerful punch.


I really enjoy saysoldl's enthusiasm over the psypher pad. It encouraged me to buy one a few months ago and I'm extremely impressed with the results. I think it's failed me like 3x BUT it was my own fault Smile
Just curious if you (saysoldl) ever perform 4DT using the psypher pad?

Thank you!

Uh no I've never done Bob's 4DT with the Psypher - actually never thought of doing it that way. Good?

No. Bad idea, for the reasons I discussed at length in my "A Journey Through the 4th Dimension." Using an impression device for the routine is an old idea, but it has inherent problems- the foremost of which is that the entire routine is shot if the impression doesn't come out. It is far better to look at original copy and to use traditional billets rather than having anyone write anything on a pad of any sort. (And, believe me, I have experimented with virtually every method that has been used for the effect.)

And if you did it with an impression device it would no longer be my version of the effect. It would be closer to Al Koran's (which used an NCR pad).

The way I perform it is actually similar to the Ultimate 4DT in the same book using it in the envelopes. No one ahead needed! How often have you performed it this way compared to your normal way with the sh**** env?

It isn't bad and does get the job done. If you get it, you should probably switch out the marker for a sharpie pen (as Smith suggests and explains). But, yeah. There are better imp pads out there and I do continue to hear great things about the ParaPad (though I have not actually used it). All that failing? Make your own (i.e. something like the Scanner pad from Prager's "Goat's Grimoire")

I never perform it that way anymore. I prefer to look at the original writing/drawing whenever possible.

RESURRECTED! Hey, quick question - with PSYPHER PRO now out on the market a lot of people are recommending this to me, but I am worried that this is just the same "green stuff" as parapad and the Informer?

If it is, I certainly don't need another prop exactly like the 2 I already own.

THANKS!

The stuff used by Parapad is considered the best on the market. And so says my experience also.
Parapad has never failed me!

Do you guys use those devices mainly for drawings and names? I often do a pin code reveal and just noticed that sometimes it's a bit tough in bad lighting to see the differences between 1 and 7 and sometimes even 3 and 9 when you have someone who just quickly wrote it down. If I get it wrong I know I will be right by my second guess. Probably this even makes some effects stronger as you can say that the person was hard to read - and with this you won't have any heat on your devices (if there ever have been some). What do you think?

That's why I gave up on these magnetic foil impression devices. Illegibility. The best impression device solution I have found so far is outlined in the first section of Al Mann's "Cero-Mentics".
