Does anyone do the gaffed Monti explained in Bruce Elliot's "Professional Magic Made Easy". I've never seen that gaff used in that way.
I really like the idea of keeping my cards uncrimped, and not having any mis-spotted cards. Will it fly in the sometime turbulent air, close-up?

I was trying to be as opaque as I could. I'm asking about shorting one of the black cards so it will deal from the center position as if it is on the bottom. An automatic hyp.

Ringo,
I tried it as a young man, however, in those days my audience often wanted to “see the cards”.
Once busted, I never went back.
I learned the real toss and didn’t have a use for it.

Still, because no one touches my stuff anymore,
I think it’s a great way to do Skinner type routines with the flat, regular cards.

Also, the amount shaved can be really really thin and it works fine.

Peace,
Docc
