The Thick Card Project (plus Bonus) Review

A simply marvelous gimmick (included) that allows you to do any of the effects listed above. As a double lift facilitator (the reason I bought it) makes double, tipple even quad-ripple lifts easy and a thing of beauty. If you are a die hard card man it will be thought of as cheating but for the average magician who would like to add some professional looking card moves to their routines, it is a God send. If you have ever wanted to do a flawless signed ambitious card routine but had trouble with the sleights now you can add it to your set worry free. And for a smash finish take a look at ocular listed elsewhere on this site. As far as value for the money and quality of product? Hey it's Big Blind Media...'nuff said.

Manufacturer's Description:

Thick Card - a double thick playing card used as a locator card, a peek device, an automatic double lift facilitator, a break-less control gaff and a sleight free forcing machine!

The thick card is one of the most overlooked and underused gaffs in magic. Simple and inexpensive to make, yet massively versatile, this innocuous creation is a powerful replacement for sleight of hand. With one dropped into your working deck you will be armed and ready to perform controls, forces, multiple lifts and peeks all without EVER HOLDING A BREAK!

The Thick Card is like the swizz army knife of gaffs - it can do so much, yet is all but invisible in the deck. You can have your thick card in play all day long. The deck can be handled by the spectator. It's undetectable from every angle, and it's 100% locatable with touch alone. (No more panicked triple checking that you cut at the right place!).

This single gaff card will elevate your routines to a stratospheric level - now you can perform forces, controls, peeks and multiple lifts with the cleanest possible handling. As you never need to hold a break, you are free to put the deck down. You can shuffle, cut and mix the deck AND STILL BE IN COMPLETE CONTROL OF THE CARDS!
