Hey Daffydoug

Then you'll have to watch a video. I think Hank Lee has one on his site. However, this trick looks better on video than I think it looks in real life. that's why I suggested the magic shop.


Best,

Al

Hey Boat. I watched Hank's video quite some time back. But, still I wanted real experience opinions because I was still left with some hesitation.
The difficult must become easy, the easy beautiful and the beautiful magical.

I still use this effect. It is a wonderful effect and it plays as well as the performer is able to entertain. I think the premise of the roadrunner and the coyote provides SO much room for entertainment, you could drive a Mack truck through it!

The only issue I have had with this effect is that the card wears out and you can't erase it any more. I found a simple solution to that. I take any card from a matching deck and cover it one large piece of invisible tape. I have 3 inch rolls of invisible tape that you can only buy on the internet (most office supply stores only carry 2 inch rolls). These rolls work great. Cover the card, trim off the excess, and I'm good to go for another 100,000 miles.

This is one of those effects that I rotate in and out all the time.

Thanks KJ, that is one of my creations, glad you are enjoying it. I have a Version 2 I have been road testing for awhile and hope to release one day. I agree it is a commercial effect Smile To make a new card you can also use the clear book covering material available in most stationary stores, it is the clear film used to protect dust jackets.
