Good idea, but not practical Report this review

Obviously a gimmick that lets you duplicate corner tears is an excellent idea for a utility because it opens up so many miraculous effects. The problem is that this gimmick creates problems as it's trying to solve this one.
The most obvious problem is with the basic handling. Generally, when corner tears happen, they're done very quickly and casually. With this gimmick, it looks like there's more of a precision operation going on... well, because there is. Even if a spectator doesn't suspect a gimmick, they might think that you're so talented at handling cards, you've developed the skill required to tear a card the same way each time.
The other problem is that the construction of the gimmick makes the deck very difficult to handle. There are some things you may be accustomed to doing with a deck of cards that are simply not possible because you've got this gimmick in the middle of the deck.
You also have to be very careful with your angles. The gimmick is disguised well enough so that it's not obvious, but if you flash the deck at the wrong time at the wrong angle, it will be spotted.
Like I said, credit for a very good idea, but too cumbersome in my opinion to be truly useful.

Think of all those times when you had this great idea for a trick where a signed card appears in an impossible location- and then you struggled to think of a workable routine to make it happen. Well with intercessor you pretty much can! The only difference is that it's not a signed card, it's a card with a corner missing.
Some magician's may prefer to have a signed card but I don't think from an audience's point of view it matters, so long as they have something to suggest that the card in the impossible location is their's then that's all you need!
The gimmick is well made and there is a booklet included which teaches a few tricks in detail, but like I said you can basically replace most 'signed card' tricks with 'torn corner' tricks now.
