I believe not without some hanky-panky.

In the Demo he hands it out to his partner but in the comments here it is mentioned, that it is not possible.

I like the visual effect of the trick, even though it seems a bit fiddely in the video.
I only wish the gimick would be customisable since as a german I just love my phoenix cards.
Maybe I will get it and try to make my own gimick like I often have to do.

The switch is explained in the instructions, so YES, it is possible.

I got this yesterday, and while it works well and is indeed very visual, I would not perform this in a close-up situation. Great for parlor and stage. Ideal for a children's show. Good trick with certain limitations.

I have performed the trick at table hopping.

You can´t be under their nose in order to perform the trick but I would not say this is good for stage or parlor only.

One meter or two away from the audience and you are in perfect conditions to perform the trick.

I should reiterate: Sketch is a terrific effect. I would just be careful about getting too close to the specs. I would give myself about ten feet. I will perform this trick; I will simply be careful to perform it under the right conditions. Think Cardiographic.

Interesting, I know in my close up gigs people are closer than 10 feet from me.

How is with the gimmick quality??? WPR said that is quite fragile (if I understood it well)..... you know after buying a couple of sansminds product like Travel and oh snap (they got loose or broke after 2/3 performances) I m became little bit skeptical!!

I can guarantee 100% that the gimmick is NOT fragile.

That statement is totally false.

We tested the gimmick more than 20.000 times and still works like the first time.

I just received Sketch and I am slightly afraid to fold the gimmick, the material seems a little tight, will it break upon opening? other than that..perfect..I'm sure I should rewatch the "secret video"

I had problems with mine being a bit too lively when I performed the move but I have found that the more times you fold the card the better it becomes because a lot of the tension goes and it finds it's sweet spot eventually....I'm definitely going to be using this for table hopping it is absolutely perfect for that type of audience....I think this is such a visually stunning piece of magic and it will sit well along side little door....my gimmicked sharpie is now useful for 2 effects

Performing magic ten feet away is not close up. Glad I held back on this one. You only receive one gimmick card, no good for walk around. Fragile, will need repairing.
Such a shame. Was hoping for better with this.

Will need repair? Have you performed the trick 1000 times now?

Do you think I place something on the market that breaks easily?

I feel offended with such statement.

I am so confident with the durability of the gimmick that I will replace the gimmick for free if any breaks.

This is how confident I am about the product.

Good enough?

Does this come in different cards, or will there be additional cards available for strolling situations, etc...? Mine came in the Queen of Hearts, a good card to have, but I would like to get an additional card or two, of different values, if possible?
