The ULTIMATE KEYCARD

Postby Guest » October 28th, 2004, 2:18 pm

I'm releasing something I've held back for about 12 years-- a
keycard you can make at home that has MAJOR advantages over
traditional keycards like shorts, scallops, corner shorts & crimps.

Additionally on the same CD I'm detailing the way I've managed
to overcome almost all of USPC Company's poor quality control.
You'll be able to make the edges of your deck as smooth as silk
and the cards will last about 30% longer!

Details here: www.cardguy.net/products.htm

Thanks!

I've seen Scruffy and its very cool. Its easy to create and just as easy to use. Its almost too bad Steven is sharing this. I would love to keep it to myself and use it in my plan for world domination!

I'll bet it's just 4 cards stapled together.

Just kidding.

Steven, I saw your close-up act at the castle and it was great.

I have this and have seeen it in action and can say that the key card is pretty subtle and definitely has some advantages over your garden style variety of shorts, scallops, etc. I had known the methodology for preparing the deck that Steven also offers here and have only recently experienced on of these prepared decks first hand. The process gives bikes a unique glass like feel that is really something.

I would not have believed there was another key card concept that would represent any improvement over the abundant choices already out there.

Based upon my previous purchases from Steven, I ordered Scruffy. This is a new key card that addresses a number of shortcomings of the various key cards that I have always used.

Thank you Steven for sharing this inovation.

Carl.

I bought Scruffy on the recommendation of the posts above, and it arrived today. I'm impressed with the idea, and the videos are clear and well-done. I'm going to have a lot of fun with this! I'm a major convert to indicator cards, and I've only begun to tap their potential. They make it look like I'm a super sleight-of-hand wizard, but they make the effects nearly self-working.

Thanks, Steven, for sharing this. If any magicians ask how I did it, I'll refer them to your website and have them buy Scruffy!

There is a bonus on the Scruffy DVD: a method for prepping decks to make them perform smoothly. This method alone is worth the price.

Thanks for the kind words, Bob!

What would you judge the SI of Scruffy to be?

As a CSI (Cardician Strategy Investigator) I have tested "Scruffy" as follows:

1. Luminol was sprayed over the DVD and revealed extensive amounts of secret procedures.

2. A spectroscopic analysis revealed trace amounts of di-abolical ferrous sulphate, suggesting intervention from an infernal region (i.e., Hell).

Based on these findings the Sneaky Index (SI) is estimated at 99 percentile, plus or minus 2 basis points.

An arrest warrant has been issued for Youell.
