RPM Control by Bulla Lepen

The RPM Control is the multitool every mechanic needs.

The RPM Control is the multitool every mechanic needs in his tool chest - able to be used in almost any situation. Its applications range from a single card control to top, bottom or tenkai palm, to a multiple card control, a color change or an inversion.

Bulla Lepen takes you through the full handling of the control in detail, including how to use this single move as almost every sleight in your repertoire. The RPM Control is perfect for performing in table-hopping situations where spectators are burning your hands close-up - however it can be used at the table or in a walk around setting just as easily.

To demonstrate the versatility of this sleight, Bulla takes you through the RPM Effect - a two-phase inversion plot with a indicator card kicker.

A card is chosen and cleanly inserted back into the deck. With merely a wave of the hand the entire deck visually inverts face up. The deck is spread and a single card is found face down in the middle… it's the selection.

The routine can be immediately repeated - the entire deck inverts and the single card is shown… to be incorrect. The magician explains that this card is an indicator, and after counting down the shown number - the selection has again been found.
