At first you will be like [edited] because the gimmick is hard to handle at first but if yuour willing to practice it gets easier and easier and easier.
It looks beautiful also. I would reccommend purchasing it!

He's right ^. The first set up is a pain in the @$$ but from then on, it's easy and a great effect. Only problem is that it's not really for Close Up. You have to be at least three feet away or someone will figure it out because they are anxious.

I first bought the Hummingbird card in Las Vegas and I've been using it for five years now. It is a great effect. You do have to practice it to get it right. It is not hard neither is it something your going to master in one session. The key is practice. Go to YouTube.com and look at some of MadV's videos. He is great with this effect.
I think you'll be happy you purchased it. It will last you for years as one of your best tricks.

Well the gimmick isn't that durable. But you get lot's of gimmick material, so that won't be a great problem.

ive only had the hummingbird card for a few weeks, and it took me about 10 minutes to set up my first one, and yes the average person can do it with a little practice. ppl who cant do it dont try hard enough. yes it is wrth the money by far, it is an amazing effect and gets great reactions. definitely worth 10$.

I love this effect. My best moment was walking into a birthday party and one of my friends who loves to try and ruin my card tricks said "Hey you, do some magic, where are your cards!?" and I asked him for one of his credit cards and made it spin between my hands. Then I handed it back to him and went and got a beer. The look on his face was worth 500 dollars at least :)

The first time you setup will be a little frustrating, but I had it down after maybe 3 times. You'll love it.[/i]
