Suspenz (Gimmicks and Online Instructions) by Eric Bedard and Vortex Magic
"Extremely clever and very well made. I love the fact you can start clean and end clean. The gimmick is small enough to hide under a card or note and you can spread the cards fast or slow. " -Paul Romhany, *Reviews Vanish Magazine
A STAGE ILLUSION NOW A CLOSE-UP ILLUSION
Eric Bedard created his original suspenZ 25 years ago. During that time, he shared it with a very small handful of professional magicians who have been performing it in their act.
Recently VORTEX magic approached Eric and together created an updated machined gimmick that allows you to perform incredible suspensions from your hand.
Use ANYTIME in your act -
A variety of ways to use this gimmick...

suspenZ allows for THREE amazing moments.
1) You spread the cards between your hands further than your normally could. 2) You take one hand away and the cards remain suspended. 3) You can reach over and take out a chosen card, and then hand the deck out.
