Personally I dislike using a torn corner to identify a card or bill. It’s very clunky compared to having is signed and you lose the punch of the item reappearing and having it immediately identifiable.
Ok, that’s out of the way, now I’m doing to explain why I’m playing with a trick with a torn corner.
A long time ago when Gaeton Bloom’s Intersessor trick came out, I thought it would lend itself to a trick in Tarbell where a card jumps out of the deck when the end is riffled. I never did it because $50 to play with an idea that I would probably never use was a bit steep. Recently I found a super deal on a used Intersessor gimmick and bought it.
Here’s me trying out the idea before my show and my comments on it:
I think I’m going to switch it up and use a corner switch or a scored duplicate card instead of the Intersessor gimmick. That will solve having to ditch the gimmick. With scored card or corner switch, it will allow me to use a bigger tear which will let me do a bigger tear and get a bigger jump of the card.

This is an interesting use of the Intercessor gimmick! I have one and I’ve always thought it would be cool to use, but it’s never made it into my act.
It was fun to do, but doing a corner switch ended up working better. That gimmick is much harder to palm out than a normal card!
it’s getting good reactions, there are just a few things I need to figure out…
