Giant Close-Up Pad by Vanishing Inc
Here's what you need to know:
Saying this pad is "giant" is actually a bit of an understatement. This thing is ENORMOUS! At 39 inches across, it is the perfect surface for all of your favorite coin tricks and card tricks. You can ribbon-spread an entire deck of cards to the point of being able to clearly see every index-making it perfect for those effects where multiple spectators select cards.
The BEST Color
After years of testing an absurd amount of close-up pads, Joshua Jay is adamant that black is the best color for a close-up pad. Red and blue offer poor contrast and green looks like a roving casino. But black, on the other hand, shows everything from coins to cards with ultimate clarity while also beautifully masking dirt and lines. As an added bonus, the bold pitch-black color of The Giant Close-up Pad makes it an ideal surface for black art.
Built to Last
Despite being thinner than almost all other close-up pads, The Giant Close-up Pad is also incredibly durable thanks to a composite rubber base and a resilient velvet surface. Unlike other pads that have a foam center, which can wear out over time or cause wrinkles, this pad is built to withstand a lifetime of use. It can be folded, rolled, scrunched or pulled without any fear. Simply put, it's been built by workers FOR workers.
The LOWEST Cost
Unlike Vanishing Inc.'s more luxurious pads with rigid backings and ornate embellishments, this is not a pad reserved for special occasions. The Giant Close-up Pad is the type of pad you toss in your luggage, use behind the bar or add to your practice table. In fact, since it costs less than one-third of the price of similar pads, you can just grab one for every situation.
