Great effect - love the gimmick. Does anyone else have issues with it getting loose though? (where it won't always close all the way). I've been using a finger underneath to make sure it sticks, but curious if there is any quick fix for it.

I don't know how old your gimmick is but these just don't last forever. It is the nature of something made of paper and rubber

Thank you for enlightening me of this. I never knew that. I've used those items for years & always thought paper & rubber lasted forever... Smile

Actually, I've had the gimmick for about two weeks, and practiced with it about a half a dozen times a night (rather gently I might add). It seemed to loosen up after a few tries. I worked out handling that works, so it's no biggie. I was just wondering if anyone had the same issue & had a way to fix it.

Well if you hear of a way to fix it let us all know.Mine stayed pretty nice looking for I think a hundred or more hits but now doesn't close quite as tightly. Modest life span is why I rarely buy gimmicks like this but this one was too much fun. I think Peter Nardi will replace one that he is really convinced is a lemon but I don't speak for him

How are you guys ditching the gimmick?

I want to use this at the start of my ACR... but it's only easy for me to ditch if I'm wearing my TKO 2.0.

or do you just cut it into the deck and continue your routine with the gimmick in the middle of the deck somewhere?

Please excuse my ignorance. How is the SHERPA version different from the regular version?

Sherpa has a larger diameter hole.
I believe that's the only difference.
Someone correct me if I'm wrong.

Working with this now. Very nice effect with a Sharpie. Does anyone know offhand if the cigarette through card is still produced though? I'm working on a routine and I usually buy from Penguin but I didn't see it offered there...

Check out this site for cig thru card. Heard good things about this version and Bernd is great to work with and does excellent work.

Will there or could there ever be plans to do this in Phoenix? I have veered away from Bicycle and I like to exclusively use Phoenix when I perform. I hate the idea of having to carry a bicycle deck for one trick.

Apparently there is going to be a Phoenix version, according to last weeks episode of TNT.
I hope this is sooner rather than later; hopefully Peter from Alakazam or Christian from card-shark can confirm.

As a new user to this Café I am finding every time I log in my wallet gets lighter! And this is another effect that looks AMAZING and I have convinced myself is a must for me. Looking at the reviews I won't be disappointed!
Cheers Guys Smile

Christian stated in another thread that the Phoenix version should be available in a couple weeks or so, along with a Sherpa version as well.

I actually threw mine away by accident. It looks so real that I thought it was some leftover cards I left on my coffee table and tossed it with the trash!
Bought another the next day!
