Defective Deck Review

Defective Deck

This is a bonus routine that comes with Diminishing Returns.


In The Defective Deck, the magician fixes a variety of "defective cards" in increasingly visual ways. The trick ends with Doug Conn's incredible PIP TRIP in which pips are slid around the card to different locations.


The method is just some color changes and some easy sleight of hand.


This comes with four really cool gimmick cards. If you don't like the routine you can use the Pip Trip trick like E does in its Gaff Deck.
The other gimmicks you can't do much with.


You have to setup this trick after every performance. Most people will probable be able to complete the setup in less than a minute if the remember the order of the cards.


After the trick, you can end clean. All you have to do is put the Joker away inside your pocket and if people want to examine it, you can take it out again cleanly.


1. End clean
2. Bonus effect
3. Normal deck of cards
4. Cards are examinal
5. Easy sleight of hand


1. Gimmicked cards

I love this trick. I will do it all of the time after I master it. I will use it with David Regal's color changing deck which is also great.

I give it a 10/10 :D

IMHO, this is better than the effect it is a bonus for.
It has smoe nice changes and a great change of pace to the standard pick a card trick to show your skill!
