Nobody will ever be able to compete with the care and customer service of Marty Grams at http://www.martinismagic.com/
. This guy really cares about you and loves to serve with all types of card gimmicks as well. A class act.

Just wanted to second what people are saying about Marty from Martini's Magic. I too ordered the Rising Deck from him and I am extremely pleased with the operation of the deck. Marty is generous to a fault and his customer service is above and beyond what is the norm these days!

More to add... George Richbark finally fulfilled my latest order... I have seen an older deck of his that a friend of mine uses... his quality has declined... The deck works just fine. It uses a pin method similar to the Devano and laces the cards together like the Arne/AMY deck. Also, you will have to handle it slightly differently than an Arne/AMY deck.

Marty's deck is superior to Galdini's. I also now have a real Devano deck in my possession, and I can attest that if you want to do Don Alan's handling as outlined by Ron Bauer, you really need an actual Devano deck. Richbark's deck and the Arne/Amy type /will/ work but you will have to modify your handling for a certain part.

If you want to handle the deck as Pop Haydn does, it is better, perhaps even necesary to use an Arne/AMY deck.

I have also since found out that Lonnie Galdini was making decks for Loftus/Empire at one time, and may still be if he is still around... His deck is very much like Martini's but with a significant difference that makes the gimmick packet less deceptive. Also Marty uses toupee tape and Galdini uses some kind of little dot of adhesive that you used to have send off to him to get... Masking tape will work fine with either deck as they work the same way.

Any questions PM me.

Here is a little video on the handling of an Arne/Amy style deck:

I have been studying your instructional video on the rising cards, Pop, and I have found it extremely valuable. Thank you for making this available to us. Anyone who is using a rising card deck should watch Pop's video. It's only $10, years ago this would have been a $40 or $50 video tape!

The way in which the deck is handled makes all the difference. You must be very natural and handle the deck as if it is regular deck of cards. You must present the trick as if you really believe it is real magic... Pop's character even gets a little hint of fear in his eye! (care to elaborate on that little bit of subtext, Pop?)

Just recently ordered one of Marty's Rising Cards and I can vouch for his excellent customer service. I actually had one of his rising cards years ago, but it sadly got lost when we moved towns. I look forward to playing with it again once it arrives.
