Excellent product! This is a well made close up mat and is only $13.00 for the 23X16. Thats such
a good deal compared to the other brands available. This defiantly has my recommendation.
I recently purchased the Professional VD Close up pad.
I got out my favorite cards the Tally-Ho
and tried them out on my new pad. I found that when I tried ribbon spreads the card edges did not
slide smoothly across the surface of the the pad. There was a definite resistance that interfered
with the smooth sliding action needed when doing a spread.
Soooooo, I now have a close up pad
I can't use, it was a waste of the very small amount of money I have for magic purchases.
recommend you not purchase this product, however I would recommend the version that has a velvet
Also, I would like to say that it is rare that I purchase something from Penguin Magic
that is not up to snuff, Penguin Magic is my #1 source for magic purchases.
Can't do better for the price.
Good quality. Does position well without sliding on the table. For the price you can't beat it.
This is made of really good material and has a top layer which is very comfortable and is also
perfect for cards and coins. Highly recommended!
