Hi guys,

Those that purchased STC sharpie through card, are you still using it on a regular basis. Do you consider it a worker?

Regards

Rich,

Hi. It sounds like you are trying to decide whether to purchase this.

I have sharpie through card, but I really don't use it. I think this is an important lesson for all of us to learn, God knows I'm guilty of this.

Far too often, we buy magic because it looks cool.

We put the cart before the horse.

I think that if you have a routine where it would make sense to use this, then you will. If you don't, you won't.

For example, if you do the Jay Sankey trick where a coin burns it's way through a deck to get to a selected card, then this would be a perfect complement.

So, it IS a worker, it's just a matter of whether you have come up with a killer routine that you think this would fit into.

I use it often as a quick trick and get great reactions.
I also use Science Friction which makes the "moves" smooth Smile

I have this effect as well... and I agree with 1KJ.

Although it's a great effect, I honestly have not used it much.

But when you do, you will get reactions, its a quick freak-out moment.

Like 1KJ said, it's probably best to use this as a follow-up, even tho it works just as well as a stand alone effect.

Does anyone have one for sale?

I might be interested at a reasonable cost.
I'm in USA 66061 zip code.

I've used it as part of my Ambitious card routine.
I fool myself every time.

I used it a lot, but not as it is intended.

Mine has been lost for 6 months.

I don't make a lot of magic prop purchases and these post have got me thinking.

I think I am thinking of a different prop.
The one I had was like the pen through any card or bill.

I used it more during a comedy ear piecing than with a playing card or Dollar bill.
