The cardmaker one looks "cleaner" but not more visual, not as "eye popping" as STC is, sorry.


But you can see underneath and looks just as inpressive, visual wise just the same, sharpie through card and showing the face of the card as well pretty cool.Signed card could be used but obviously done a little different without giving to much away.Peter's and the Cardmakers are real cool that's for sure,

I don't think there is any need at all to "see" underneath - when I have performned this the spectators could care less. I think it is we as Magicians that may feel the need to prove - maybe unnecessarily.

When the see the pen penetrate, they can see the pen on the other side of the card. They also just handled and signed their card prior so the card should be innocent.

As others have said the pen is suspect.

Cardmaker's version doesn't necessarily improve things imo (and I love Cardmaker btw).

Agreed SaySold.

If you really feel that you need to show the other side of the card, I'd suggest that more practice time needs to be spent upon either a decent top change or DL, timing and misdirection.

I agree. Looks beautiful but card cannot be signed and still you have to swap it. STC makes it easier to swap.
Very nicely done, Peter. I've finally got my STC a few days ago. Superb crafting.
I do not agree with what you have to say, but I'll defend to the death my right to say "scr*w you" if you persist. [Voltaire Smile]

Maybe you could start a separate thread, what do you reckon?

To me personally STC ticks the boxes for a worker. No force, any card and instantly repeatable. That's what I aim for with my magic.

I own both as well.Cardmakers version is good to have for those who have seen the Dave Solomon/Rob Bromley/Peter Nardi version.
Of course there is no need to show underneath but if you keep doing this at a regular gig someone is bound to ask.

Let us also remember a cigarette is NOT a Sharpie. I don't smoke, so that's why I chose STC. It's definitely time to move CTC to its own thread.

All well and good, and a visually stunning effect. My main challenge in using STC is justifying it, making it a logical element of an effect, rather than just a shocking piece of eye candy.
So far I have used it after a signed-card to wallet effect, when I say something like, "Notice I had you sign the face, not the back, of the card, because from the back a marker like this can melt its way right thru a playing card."
I'm curious how others incorporate the STC display into their presentations.

I use the fantastic Black Hole presentation on the DVD now as a stand alone piece or as a prelude to a longer routine.

I received my STC 3 days ago and now (since yesterday), after some good rehearsal and a few performances, I'm encountering an issue. Sometimes when I remove the Sharpie from the card, the end-position of the gimmick is not correct which immediately blows the effect (if you have encountered this problem I think you know what I mean). It keeps occurring more often now. It's has now come to the point that it is un-performable

Does anyone recognize this problem?
