How difficult is this for an absolute beginner in cards? I like the effect, but wonder if I have the dexterity in my hands to ever be able to perform it.


The main concept is easy to do.

I bought Angle Z DVD and performed with bicycle. Then bought refill pack and artifice deck from Ellusionist. I used artifice deck to just melt into the back. Both are great. Does anyone have thoughts on using artifice deck, to find the corner and then melt into the back of the card or is that too much? Also, does anyone know if there are any plans for more outcome variety in the artifice deck refills?

Wow... I've been doing this trick and didn't even know what it was called lol? I might have to buy this. I've made the torn corner appear in many places. But I'd love to look into how to load it under a watch. That would be awesome.

Wow. Wow. That's so indicative of the times. Not blaming anyone for anything, but that does seem to be a very 21st century magic situation...somebody performing a trick that they can't even identify. I do appreciate you being brave enough to admit it, though! I've probably been guilty of this too over the years.

Sorry to bring up an old thread but just came across this. I might be missing something, but would someone not simply deduce that it was p*****d before the f **** t***? The first part looks convincing, but if they thought about it at all afterward I can't imagine them not coming to this conclusion.

Why not try it and see? Smile It's worked for me every time and gets incredible reactions. I also use the same "t***" method with Richard Sanders "Ultra Gum" which gets the same stunned reactions and of all the times I've performed it nobody has EVER worked out how it was done.

Actually it's more indicative of a time long gone. In the days of no internet. Magicians at maci clubs would teach tricks to members, they wouldn't know the name of the trick.
I don't think its a bad thing.

I perform it all the time ... and usually Justin Miller's handling of the torn corner appearing between their hands. Did it in Greece a few weeks ago and won €120 of free drinks, so it's paid for itself many times over with just that one performance.

Nope. Original Work. I am good friends with Henry Harrius the Creator of Rubik's Nightmare! So our work is similar to each other.. but different!

Here is a review of Angle Z from www.mylovelyassistant.com. This should answer some of the questions asked in this trhead.

Rating 5 out of 5 stars!

Daniel Madison's Angle Z is a mind blowing card trick that anyone can do with just a bit of confidence, some basic card handling skills and a regular deck of cards. In essence, a spectator selects a card, and the performer removes it from the deck and immediately tears off the corner. The corner of the card instantly vanishes. The corner then reappears in an unlikely place such as the spectator's pocket, across the room on a shelf, under a book, or any place in the room. The performer does not need to recover the vanished card corner, they merely point to the location and the spectator picks it up.

Although this trick is simple, it is a killer. The trick is a method, which is taught on a Hollywood quality produced DVD sold by Ellusionist.com.

The DVD is an hour and twenty minutes long and consists of Daniel Madison teaching the method in various segments; Intro, Mechanics, Performance Tips, Handling, Variations, Customizing, and Credits. Although the trick is easy to do, you will want to watch this DVD several times to learn the multiple variations and different handlings. The intricate detail and explanation makes the DVD worth every penny. At the end of the DVD there is an additional chapter "Live Performance" in which Madison demonstrates the trick in street magic encounters with actual spectators, which is fun to watch and inspiring. The manufacturer's description does not really describe the trick , but it is not misleading in any way. It merely, describes what will be taught i.e. "The most effective places to reveal the hidden corner" or "how to perform Angle Zero with a signed card".

Interestingly, Madison explained that when he first released the trick in his book "TWO" he believed it to be a "throwaway" effect and didn't appreciate the strength of the illusion until he saw fellow magicians performing his trick.

Separate and apart from the above ungimmicked Angle Z method, Ellusionist.com, sells a gimmicked version of Angle Z, that is taught on its "Gaff Sytem" DVD. This version of Angle Z requires the performer to use Ellusionist.com's Artifice deck and its gimmicked Angle Z refills. In that version of the trick, after the corner vanishes, it appears on the back of the card. Initially this reveal is not that impressive to the spectator as they will assume the corner was just slid behind the card. Then, as the performer tilts the card the corner does not fall off and when it is examined, the corner has fused into the back of the card. A different trick using the same principal, but just as amazing.
