Hi

I have been looking for a card trick for a while and now I just found it on youtube where a guy calls it the card elevator.
But even with the name I haven't been able to find it.

Do anyone know where to find this trick?

Simon

Here is something similer...

I don't own it to comment on practicality and overall quality?

Many people have worked on visual rising card effects to add to an ACR but from what I have seen most fall short either on practicality or not being visual enough. The reviews I have read on this seem favorable if you don't mind, and have the skills to, introduce a gimmick into your ACR.

I don't own it but I personally don't like the effect. I didn't even really notice much of anything until about the 3rd or 4th time

looks really cool the effect from T11, do you know if I can do it with a borrowed deck and the gimmick?
I was kind of looking for a version which can be done with a normal deck, like the one in the video.
It looks like the pass is used, but the author of the video claims that he use another method so I would like to know the other method.

He calls it his, so it might be something he came up with. So you probably wont be able to gain the secret without asking him or just working out your own method to it. Not everything you see is always for sale. Also, just because he claims it isnt the pass, doesnt make it so. He could always be trying to throw you and others off.


I wasnt too impressed with his, it wasnt at all entertaining or that neat. (I also get tired of seeing the 'headless magician') and Ive seen better.

I don't know. It is an instant download which means the gimmick is homemade. Even if it is a back specific gimmick you could make one for the most common deck in your area.

I agree with Dave about the video you posted. I don't really like the handling of that one.

NO! this one is different.
This one base on TA. at the end push second card little forward.

This looks a lot like Ray Kosby's Raise Rise
