This effect is one which I was most glad to have obtained. The effect is magical and the HOW is
wonderfully discreet. The 'something' that makes this work, gets introduced and later, hidden in the
hands most natural movements. Every action here is normal, and the gaff just blends into those
movements. Before and after the effect, card is 'clean'-hands clean, and it's a joy to perform.
Naturally, folks may stoop to look below the card as it floats. I keep my arms and hands naturally
low-and don't let the card hover for too long. I push it back 'down' before anyone can see. Card
levitations like this, and Hover card, present the Magi with the issue of angles, and crowd control.
The performance situation will naturally help determine which method out of several one will employ
to make that card float. To get truly 'clean', and eliminate the potential for spectator peeking or
snooping, we all have Loops to use. For a clean card rise, Loops, or Kundalini Rising by Jeff
McBride. Frequent Flier is I believe a very well conceived levitation, not to be overlooked. It
comes with 2 cards, red and blue and a routine. I prefer the Blue card as it provides better
camoflauge than the red, discreet as the gaff may be. Once seen and understood, one may make
additional gaff cards. I made black back Bicycles ones, as these truly eliminate any chance of the
gaff being seen. And to be clear, the gaff is so well configured that no one will know of it. The
card cannot be instantly examined, but switched on the deck-which is often the case with special
cards. The instructions refer to being able to levitate a card from the deck itself. How to
accomplish this is not indicated or explained. Nor could the gaffed card easily rise from the top of
the deck, if at all. Checking videos, scarce few exist for this trick, beyond a set of hands
floating the card in what appears to be a workshop, with table and tools in the background. In any
case, this I believe is a worthwhile version of levitating card, and worth the price. I left out 1
star due to the deck reference, with no elaboration.
i thought the gimmick was good but you cant just hand it out for examination, you need to do a
special move!!!!! Over all i liked it, and it blends in with the card!!! It is not a street magic
trick it is for close-up and stage maybe!!!!
This trick is definitely one of my favorite tricks to perform. However, depending on your position
when you're performing this, the spectator can sometimes figure out how your are doing it. To
counter that, the method they teach you so it can be examined will fool your skeptical audience. You
should definitely get this.
