Slipstream by Eric Stevens is not only one of the most visual, unique and practical torn and restored cards, but it is quickly becoming a staple (pun intended) in many magician's repertoire.
Here is what happens; A freely chosen card is selected, removed from the deck and, if desired, signed by the spectator. You then proceed to fold and tear off one corner of the selected card. Explaining that you will restore the card back to normal, you proceed to bring out a mini stapler. You then staple the torn corner of the card back on the card but in an abnormal position, in the center of the selected torn card. After clearly showing both sides of the card the corner is stapled to the card. You then bring your hand over the stapled corner and slowly the corner is passed through the staple and is completely restored back to the corner of the card where it started. The card can be immediately handed out, examined and kept as a one of a kind souvenir. Although the staple remains in the center of the card after the card is restored, the corner still has the holes from the staple!
You will receive everything you need to perform Slipstream right out of the box. This effect will come with a mini stapler, staples and 2 pre-assembled red and blue gimmicks as well as extra pieces to assemble your own gimmicks to any of your favorite decks.
With the Slipstream instructions, you will learn everything you need to know in extreme detail. It will also teach how to perform the full Slipstream routine from multiple angles, as well as multiple variations of Slipstream; including an gimmick-less version. As an added bonus we teach a routine called Trimuda Berangle, where Eric shows a very unique presentation with Slipstream using a blank card.
There are so many magical moments to be had with Slipstream and we cannot express enough how wonderful this effect is. Of course don't take my word for it; here is what so many others are saying about this practically perfect torn and restored card!
