Weak is a centuries old myth brought to life by Perseus Arkomanis. The spectator picks whatever card they want, then you tear the card to show it can be done. With a touch of their elbows, you steal their strength away, and they're unable to tear the card.

We made sure we found the strongest man we could in Greece to go up against WEAK in the trailer. His strength was stolen effortlessly.

Man vs Paper ... a battle that seems easy, but even the strongest can't tear a simple playing card.

Then, with a snap of the fingers, the spectators strength is restored and they tear through the card like a hot knife through butter.

Tired of all the "find your card" effects? It's time to add a miracle to your arsenal and do something different.

  1. Summary

    I've been using this for years. I also use it in my show. The construction isn't to hard it only should take a few minutes. Some supplies you will have to go buy from the store. All in all I love the effect!
  2. Summary

    I would just like to say that this is a really fun trick to perform. Some Pros and Cons.

    Pros- Super easy to perform for beginners, or advanced magicians.
    - Gimmick can be constructed with house hold items but you will need something else that you might not have at home and will need to get it at a store.
    - Gets amazing reactions

    Cons-Gimmick may be hard to construct for beginners who are just starting magic.

    So overall really great trick, recommend buying it, he does great explanation just the con does bring it down a bit but it is not impossible to do.
  3. Summary

    Very good trick, but the gimmick is hard to construct . Mabe It's me but I try about 10 card and and it don't work. I rip the card each time. So I decide to buy a double decker "very thin card" to construct the gimmick. It will cost me about 1$ each card , it's nothing for a professional magician, and I think this trick is enough good to spend 50 bucks for 50 professional show. Tutorial is good, good qualities, good explanation So over all it's a good trick ! Sorry for my bad English .
  4. Summary

    This is a great trick, making the gimmick may take a few attempts to get them looking as good as untouched cards. I would caution you to test them before you take them out in the field. The first gimmicks I created would tear with effort. I emailed the creator for some assistance and he responded, which was great. For 9 bucks can't be beat, a quality trick that is not too difficult to make and if you are a performer you'll earn more in tips from this trick than you ever will paying for it.
  5. Summary

    This again is another awesome effect. When Perseus releases an effect I'm on lookout. I use this on the muscle heads that think they can lift a car and no one has ripped the card. He teaches a presentation that you can alter to your style. Again great magician, great effect.
  6. Summary

    I bought this immediately upon its release and have used over 20 times already. This one really leaves people feeling confused. One of my favorites especially to do on people who don't 'like' card tricks. I always make sure to have a few on me. Absolutely fool proof.
  7. Summary

    Incredible. Bought it at midnight, and was ready with 5 gimmicks for my show next day. It translates beautifully to stage and gives closure to any strength or hypnosis routine because it is that fool proof.
