I just bought Double Cross. I have not worked with it yet. I will say this. it is a great alternative to Ashes on the palm. Yes I have seen it performed live. That is why I have this opinion.

Has any one found a fail safe method to get the right amount of pressure? Not so hard that they feel it, but not so lite that it doesn’t show up?

My two cents:

I used this as a closer tonight and it blew them away.. it was at a bar so naturally I had a couple to drink and lost the *** stamper, however, I opened with Fraud ( the moment was perfect) followed by Chicago opener & ambitious card (trust me it made sense) and then ended with Double Cross... blew them away. It's so perfect. Lost the *** damper but it was wroth the $30 to replace.

Store the pen so the ink flows towards the stamper.

Hello guys for my first post,
I am brand new in magic. I always wanted to learn some tricks and I know some easy to lear card tricks, but stumbled across double cross.
I am a little afraid using this, because when I practiced today, I had difficulties getting the stamper back on the sharpie because the putty was sticking at my finger...
What do you do to avoid this sticking? With me it seems to stick everytime when I try to put the gimmick back on the sharpie. What is your technique? Do you use two hands to put it back or like me you try single handed?
Thanks from Luxemburg

Hey Luxemburg and welcome to the Café !

I utilize my thumb, index, and middle finger to help keep it in place and of course a little misdirection

I still find it really sticking on the finger and leaving a slight mark afterwards. Maybe I use to much of the black stuff.

I use a small amount of D sided sticky tape. Works a treat. Just put another pen top over that end too, when not in use. By doing that It also reminds you what the sharpie is.

D-sided tape? Ok. Will try that. I am really afraid that the black stuff will give the trick away! But maybe I am just thinking too much;-)

First, make sure you are using a very small amount of the putty. This is gone over in the instruction video, but once the putty is flattened, it shouldn't even be touching the sides.

Second, when I got mine, for whatever reason, the first bit of putty I took off was leaking ink. I'm not sure if that's actually what was happening, but the result was the same. It would mark my finger a lot - I attached a picture. I thought I was going to have to return it. But, I just threw that small piece of putty away, took another piece, and it has worked fine since then. I have no idea what was wrong with that first piece of putty I ripped off, but I'm glad I tried another piece before returning it.

Hi
Thanks. Yeah. That is the mark I get from the putty. I will use a new bit. And I will use less putty. I took what I thought was a small amount, but when flattened out it still touches the sides. So maybe I am just using to much.

Gabe it a quick try. Less putty—less sticky;-)
But still a little black mark. But don’t know if people will notice

Sorry if this is oversimplifying it, but did you clean the area where you put the putty before you started using the new bit? If not, could still be some ink left behind.

Good Luck! I hope the putty or tape works out or you're able to return it - this gets such great reactions!
