I just finished taking a course (yes, a course of 21 individual lessons) on the rub-a-dub deluxe vanish by Glenn Morphew.

You can check it out at his website... http://povmagician.com/

This move looks amazing and I've finally been able to get it looking pretty good. I've still got some work to do, but Glenn's teaching is excellent!

He's takes his time explaining every little nuance and throughout the course he positions himself in such a way that you can see how he's accomplishing the move from every angle.

One of the things that I learned and will probably use the most is Jeremiah Zuo's Box Vanish. This is a way to delay the revelation of the vanish. It's really smart and looks incredible.

Another highlight (that will take some practice) is a face up card switch that is accomplished with the rub-a-dub deluxe. 

Anyway, this was great course and I highly recommend it!

Thanks Glenn!!

Rudy

Hey Rudy,

Hope you are well.

Doesn't that also contain the Morphew One Hand Top Palm?

I love the vanish effect, but don't have any current routines that need it (yet).  However, that top palm seems like an incredible utility sleight to know.

It's on my list!

Cheers!

Another endorsement for GM. Glenn's work is great. I really like his Alien Ring (ring and rope) routine.

I don’t know if this “Rub a Dub” is the same as the one published in Expert Card Technique but I do that routine combined with Flying Card from Greater Magic as a Perverse Magic routine and I published that on the Perverse Magic thread of the Genii Forum on January 1, 2011. Here’s part of it:

 

Flying Card – Rub a Dub

 

Flying Card (Greater Magic page 231) and Rub a Dub (Expert Card Technique page 301) are two classic effects that I like to do together as a routine. The ending is the only “Perverse Magic” in the routine and it comes from something I read in the Fred Braue column in the February 1948 issue of “Hugard’s Magic Monthly”.

 

Effect

 

1          The performed has each of two spectators select a card which are shuffled back in the deck.

 

2          The magician springs the deck and the first selected card flies out of the cards as they spring from hand to hand.

 

3          The magician picks up the card from the floor and rubs it on his pants leg and it changes to the second selected card.

 

4          The second selected card is rubbed against the pants leg again and it vanishes.

 

5          The magician reaches into his pocket and brings out the card saying, “It doesn’t really vanish – it goes into my pocket.”

 

6          The magician has a puzzled look on his face and he again reaches into his pocket and pulls out another card. He is confused. Again he reaches into his pocket and pulls out another card – and then another and then a batch of cards saying, “The problem with this trick is I – just don’t understand it..”

I always look forward to your posts, Jerry. Thanks for sharing this with us.

Thanks for the tip, Rudy. I think I will do this too when I can find the time. I have hitherto assumed I could simply never perform it with anywhere near the beauty Glenn achieves. Probably still true, but worth a try!

Once this is mastered, get Glenn (and Bob Sheets) DVD on the 3 shell game.

Absolutely the best.

Glenn showed me the Rub-A-Dub years ago and it looked awesome. His stuff is always well worked out. I have his Alien Ring routine. Excellent. Much good thinking in all his stuff.
