The Cardiste CD by Rusduck - Trick

Written by Bernard Sim

This is a CD which contains 5 PDF files namely

Cardiste

Index to Rusduck and His Cardistry

Rusduck Bio

Rusduck in The Linking Ring

Rusduck in The Phoenix 

They are reproductions of old materials that was published more than 50 years ago. They are scanned into a PDF format. Some of the prints are not too clear. You will actually need to guess some of the words as the scannings are not clear.

The CD contains more than 90 card routines. Some full routines and some utilities moves. Some routines are self-working, some need stackings and some with sleight of hand. Most of Rusduck’s routines are stacked based.

Navigating this CD may not be very easy even with the help of the index. The index will tell you what page the routine can be found. This works fine on The Phoenix files as the page number in the index is the page number on the PDF file.  However, it is not the same for Cardiste. For example,  the index’s number five, 1958 page 11 is actually on page 77 of the PDF file.

You’ll probably spend quite some time to navigate and read through the effects in order to find something you like.  

Plenty of materials. Buy this if you like to collect this as a reference. 

3/5
