Last year we set out to offer the FINEST casual close-up pad at the absolute LOWEST price in the magic market. We're proud to say that we have achieved this.
Our Giant Close-up Pad is ENORMOUS, and is the perfect backdrop for your most beautiful card and coin work. It's 39 inches across, which means a ribbon spread will show EVERY index clearly. If you're performing bar magic, this will allow four spectators to withdraw cards at the same time.
It's Black…really black
This is the best general color for a close-up pad. A red pad is a poor contrast to red cards. A dark blue pad causes blue cards to blend in. But black shows ALL cards and coins with vibrancy. Black also shows lines and dirt the least, which will lengthen the life of your Giant Close-up Pad. You will also find this pad dark enough for routines that use black art.
This is a thin close-up pad. Because it's so large and because it's built to withstand lots of use, we opted out of a foam padding center. This foam padding is what causes visible wrinkles, and the foam on pads weakens over time. Instead, we opted for composite rubber base with a soft, velvety surface which is INCREDIBLY RESILIENT. You'll find it to be perfect for all of your card and coin routines and the pad will last, truly, a lifetime.
The Giant Close-up Pad comes with a storage tube when not in use. But, you can feel free to torture your pad and put it through the real-world conditions you're working in. Scrunch it, fold it, pull on it-safe in the knowledge that it will always be ready to use.
The Best Price
We offer several high-end close-up pads with rigid backings, and these make for gorgeous showpieces. But this pad is an EXCELLENT option that can easily fit in luggage, behind a bar, or on a practice table. Best of all, it's EXTREMELY affordable--less than a third of the price of competing close-up pads, and it will last much longer
