This would be a great finale to effects such as ACR. Using the Sharpie for them to sign the card and let them keep hold of the pen. At the end of your routine you can say something like, "You want to see something really strange?" Take the pen back and then do S.T.C. Now they have seen their signed card many times so they are accustomed to the turn overs. Don't think they would even suspect your not using their signed card.

Just arrived today - wow, what a crazy gimmick. So so so so so so so well made!

This gimmick is up there with the Skycap gimmick and the Extractor (another Bromley genius item) in terms of eye popping... engineered perfection... in a very reasonably priced product that will be astounding when performed.

Right out of the box I'm very impressed. The precision must be seen (or not seen) to be believed.

This is awesome. Road tested it tonight and I love it. It's great to perform as a piece of strange before a full on card routine. It really establishes that you are not going to be traditional pick a card magician. Plus it helps that it is super visual, easy to do and resets. Honestly this ticks all my boxes and a few boxes I didn't even know needed ticking.

Is it good? Put it this way I want a few spares so I am never without this, I can foresee this will be a big player.

Congratulations on a great release.

Fair play to Peter. He's actually given the old girl a new dress.

As a smoker myself (and no, I don't want any advice on giving up - because I enjoy it) it's increasingly apparent how many people don't carry cigarettes these days. So to now be able to perform the trick using an everyday item such as a Sharpie, finally pulls it into the 21st Century.

Unfortunately, I don't think I can use this myself as I use a Sherpa (one of those Sharpie covers that makes the pen look a bit posher). However, if I could, then I'd certainly use a TC rather than a DL to make the handling look a little cleaner.

Well done Alakazam - amongst the never-ending amount of utter dross hitting the market these days, this actually looks like a piece of commercial magic!

Peter, be a good lad and send Barry a card ( he won't need the DVD ). I believe his Sherpa will still penetrate the card.

Barry, a TC. Really? Some cry when you say DL or...takes practice. A TC is way out of their comfort zone!

You just leave Top Cat out of this, Zombie. He's the boss, he's a pip, he's the championship, for goodness' sake.

Really, I expected better from you.

A TC teaches people audience management and misdirection in one package boys - and the mechanics are actually a darn sight easier than a 'convincing' DL (a quite simple move that some people clearly still have problems with).

The TC is sweet FA to do with technique or finger-flinging ability..........it's more to do with three simple things - namely, eye contact, natural upper body movement and bigger than average balls. Robert Harbin, Claude Chandler, Pat Page and Joe Riding earned themselves a lot of good money with this one move.

Anyway, to get back on track, will this work with a Sherpa? If Peter wants to send me one, I'm more than happy to road-test it out there in that place referred to as the Real World - ennit Bruv. x

Hi Guy's

Just a heads up we have been working on a Sherpa version of STC and I'm happy to say it should be ready in 2-3 weeks! I will put these on our site in the next few days.

Best Regards

Peter

Science Friction works beautifully in conjunction with the gimmick - light spray back middle - perfect DL's with no break needed at all - just buttery smooth. I have been testing it all morning and it works 100%.

The use of SF is a match made in heaven for a great effect like STC Smile

Did I mention how perfect the STC gimmick is? wow.

You and your Science Friction, I would give you flack for not just perfecting a method but your mentalism video with your Color Matching House is inspiring and badass.

I cannot wait, I'm gonna be using this at upcoming gigs, no doubt.

SF allows cleaner DL's then most pros IMO. It's doesn't even look like a move. It allows non card people or those with dry hands etc to make these moves that allow the performer to focus on presentation.

I'm sorry to sidetrack but I think that STC is so good that those who might fear the dl should grab their SF and enjoy one of the years best effects.

Btw I don't know if I agree with my friend Barry as a tc may be more difficult and call attention to what should look like an uninterrupted sequence. Also the nature of the gimmick may make a tc harder. Maybe I'm wrong - but STC is very magical looking and easy enough for beginners to master with minimal practice.

I have a cool idea for some patter which I will share next week if it tests well.

I'm a bit interested in SF, I hear the applications are great. I think I saw a video of saysold1 at a party doing a card trick and I think I saw an SF double, which he is correct, doesn't look like a move at all. Might be my next buy.

I don't know much about SF and was interested as well. Just checked it out. $95 for a 400 ml spray can!?!? Holy moley!!! Where can I check out this video of saysold1 so I can see if this is really worth the money?

I can vouch for SF, especially for this effect. It's worth it's weight in Gold.

Many Pro's....do terrible DL's. They get away with it because the emphasis is "out" to the audience. Non pro's look at the deck when they do DL's...so that's where the audience looks.
