I've tried the double sided tape, but as soon as you use it once maybe twice at a push, the stickiness goes. So reverted back to the putty - but am still looking for that alternative.


You need to buy the proper tape and not the useless crap from the local dollar shop. I can assure you that mine lasts for at least 30 uses.


Lol, I bought scotch double sided - the one with the backing on and peel off but this lost its stickiness very quick - which one do you use?
Thanks

Maybe for the next batch of "Double Cross" they can make the black piece that holds the "X" on onside and the putty on other, can be made with some texture so you can grip it more easily. Kind of like grooves on a coin. Or like knurling on some hand tools.

That would be helpful and a LARGE improvement.

Hi guys!

I have a huge problem with the important part. its sticking in my pocket and falling out creating a mass, I think you understand me what part I'm talking about.
i tried a double sided tape instead for putty but the tape not holding anymore because it gets dirt in the pocket.
Seriously I like the effect but the part above is killing me. is anybody came with a solution for this?

Many thanks!

Read this entire thread. Some posted that they put a second cap over that end while it's in their pocket.

Scrapbooking stores Packaging stores sometimes have DS Tape and all kinds of stuff you don't need but may want.

I'm close to picking this up. People still keeping it in their sets and getting great reactions? Just give me an excuse Smile

How do you top up the ink for the “x” stamp? Can you just use ink for a stamp pad or does it have to be special type of ink?

I definitely use it regularly and in casual situations. Just an overall great kit.

I’ll be surprised if you have to top it up, but if you do then any ink that is permanent and black is fine. In fact just use another sharpies insides and cut it down to the same size.

If memory serves, that’s exactly what the video tells you to do.

Thanks for the quick response. I am having some trouble with the “x”, it doesn’t come out as solid. I’ll watch the video again to see if there are any pointers for when this happens.

I bought it this weekend (so haven't gotten it yet). But I have to admit I won't be using Dan Sperry's line, "do you believe in the devil?" I don't think I could take myself that seriously. Smile

I have seen a lot of pros use this - had it for a few months now, gets the best reaction. Just don’t repeat the effect for the same people lol.

Hi all,

Got double cross for awhile now but didn’t used it a lot for two reasons. I have struggles getting the stamp off the marker and when I get it off it leaves to much ink on my own fingers. Anyone has a good solution for this?

Yes Daniel. Have the gimmick in position before you even approach your spec. That way you’re ready in all respects. Once the dirty work is done you can casually put the gimmick back in place very easily, or just dump it in your pocket.
