What do you think about this for an ACR ending:
You talk about how you snap your fingers and then the card vanishes from the center of the deck and reappears on top, and for the finale you place the card on the table, snap and it vanishes from the table to reappear on top of the deck. (Rub vanish)
It can also be done as a sucker trick if you snap and show it on top before you lift the hand that is on the table so they'll think you still have a card there, and then after a few seconds you say "of course this doesn't mean anything unless the card is no longer here..."
Visual- yes
Strong enough- I've tried it like 4 times and it got great reactions, I should try it more
What do you think?

Am I the only one who does the Classic Pop up Move- where the card is bent.

Or if I am not in the mood for that- Card to Mouth.

:(

I love that ending, I think it's one of the most, if not the most, visual moves in card magic.
I don't do it because I don't perform for money, so I won't ruin a card just to get a reaction

The Pop Up move doesn't ruin cards. The bend will go away pretty quick, if you don't put it in too strong.

Thats what I was thinking. Having the card signed with a sharpie does more "damage" than the bend. Besides I give the signed card away every time.

My ACR is 4 phases long and I normally end it with an Omni Deck or a Deck Vanish and sometimes with Sean Field's Ambition Impossiible.

My usual ACR has 7 parts and takes almost 5 minutes to perform. The last 2 reveals are card-to-mouth and finally Sankey's paperclipped, which is a terrific ending. It definitely delivers!

My ACR used to be around 7 phases long, but decided to cut it down to 4 phases and make it last around 2 minutes.

I used to end my ACR with PaperClipped, but I feel that PaperClipped is a great stand alone effect.

I also perform Card-To-Mouth, but again, I use it as a stand alone effect.

I finally decided to order HeartBeat, can't wait to get it and add it into my ACR.

I think you're rushing it. I haven't done my ACR in ages, but it's 4 phases and takes probably 6 or 7 minutes.

I don't have a specific number of phases. I have 2 or 3 usual phases, pop-up move, face-up pass and card to wallet (mercury folded in a zippered compartment) .

I rarely do the same version. I always have variations and stuff.
