Roughing Sticks by Harry Robson and Vanishing Inc.

Thirty years of research from Harry Robson has led to the exact formula of what we now present: the Roughing Stick. This is a stick of a hard substance and what it does is simply incredible.

When you rub the surface of the stick against a card, it will act as roughing fluid does, only better. The cards stay together in roughed pairs, yet are more easily separated without fumbling whenever you want. The stick leaves NO RESIDUE, and with the roughing stick supplied you can create at least 150 Invisible Decks! This is, for all purposes, a LIFETIME supply. The best part? It's so inexpensive.

Imagine the possibilities: Packet tricks, Brainwave, Invisible Deck, and more just got MUCH easier to make, on your own, and many original tricks that would have required a spraying shed or a craftsman to manufacture can now be done at your kitchen table within minutes.

The best choice

Amazing! I tried so many other options for roughing that failed me and decided to finally purchase this and I’m so glad I did. It works flawlessly, 10/10 in my books.

Excellent Roughing Product

The stick is superior to roughing fluids in my opinion. There's less pressure to apply evenly, and can be used to partially rough much more easily than a fluid. And in this case, it's much better than others on the market. It'll also probably last you a lifetime. In terms of the performance I find it the most similar to the widely produced decks (if you get what I mean), and you can change the sensitivity depending on application. After a little messing around you can find your perfect touch.

alive !

my Whitewash declared 'handicap' after heavy practicing --- but alive 10 minutes after I got this Stick. So it is definitely a 5-Star Easter gift to me/my Whitewash!

GREAT Purchase!

I wanted to buy an invisible deck but saw this product and thought that I'd make my own and save a lot of money in the long run. Keep in mind, I've never used an ID so I was a little nervous. I opened a new deck of red bikes and made my deck in less than 10 minutes. The deck works very well! Advice: #1 Use the 1 inch part of the stick down the center of your cards. If you use the 2 inch side, it's too tacky and it's hard to slide the card over to reveal the other card. #2 Get the Geoff Williams Penguin Live lecture and use his ID setup!!! OMG, it is WAY easier than the traditional "add to 13" method! I'm so glad I saw this lecture! It makes the ID super easy to do! You can focus on your performance and not math! #3 Get the Roughing Project DVD- OMG, I had no idea you could make so many things with a roughing stick! This guy is a roughing wizard! Countless great ideas! I highly recommend this product! You can make many other types of decks too! Hope this helps!

Roughing Stick

I really, really like the roughing stick much better than the traditional spray. What a wonderful product this is.
