Teaching: The instructions were very clear and the pictures were perfect. If you get this effect I
recommend looking up other magicians who perform this effect. I learned a lot by watching Oz's
presentation and Asi Wind's as well.
Quality of materials(if it is a gimmik etc): The
gimmick is well made. People ave complained that its very delicate but like I said above, if you
take care of it, it won't break. Also in case you actually do break it, it shouldn't be to hard to
make your own. The only things I have to say on the negative side is it's slightly thicker than most
cards (about 2 cards thick), you can have the hole felt only on the front of the card (if the Spec
feels the back they might feel something fishy going on), the gimmick can make a slight noise
(easily covered up with background sounds though) and only comes in Blue Bicycle (not a big problem
for me but I know some people who only use Red Bikes, or use Tallyhos, Bee's, etc.). It only has one
angle problem which is directly behind you but with some creative crowd control thats not really a
Difficulty: It takes about 10 min to learn and a week to work out any kinks/
Applications: GREAT opener, really gets their attention. Perfect for close up magic. This could
work really well at school or at an office because having a hole punch wouldn't be that uncommon.
Overall Rating: I'd give this an 8/10 I docked 2 points only because of feeling that back
of the card and the possibility of it breaking.
Final Thoughts: I truly enjoy this trick
and will be using it often. One thing to look out for, after performing this trick people will start
asking you to move holes on everything!

This trick is really great! Well worth the money, it comes with the hole puncher! I thought I would
have to get my own but I guess not. Don't have second thoughts "add to cart!!!"

I love this illusion; it is most definitely a jaw dropper. My only problem is that it only lasted
through one performance before it fell apart.
Hollow is such an amazing trick that can be done with any signed card. No force is needed when
having a card selected but unfortunately the trick can't be done face up. If you own the trick you
know why. But that doesn't mean that it isn't still stunning. Witnessing a hole move in a solid card
is so amazing but to witness move from one card to another is even more amazing. The best part is
that afterwards, you can even let them keep their signed card as a souvenir.
What a Brilliant trick! I love visual magic and I love maagic which is different and a bit
alternative, and a moving hole effect is certainly different.
The gimmick is very well
made, so if you're concerned about nosey spectators then don't be because they won't spot the
The routine is very well thought out as well, it's nice to see an effect which is
1) brilliant 2)well thought out and 3)priced at a resonable price.
When I first got this trick, I was a little disappointed with the gimmick. I felt that it was a
little too "obvious". I finally decided to perform it after owning it for a few months, and I was
shocked at the reactions I got. People were absolutely floored. It does require a little practice
to make it look good. Good trick for all levels of magicians.
This trick is one of the only tricks in the world where u get the reactions when they are in awe
from the spectator. It is highley visable and if performed perfect the spectators will never find
out how the trick is done. It lost a star because the gimmick can be fragile and the first day i got
it a part fell off. Otherwise i recommend it only if you have been doin magic for a while. This
trick is not for beginners because of the performance.
Put it this way, if you like the following effects...
This trick is even bette then those listed above. This trick is by far the
best card magic you could ever performe. Dont worry about it breaking even though it hasnt broke on
me yet, but if it does, you can make another one very easily that can be just as good. It would be
very very hard to beat the reactions that you will recieve with this trick. Don't worry about the
spectators seeing something they shouldnt because they won't. They would have to look very very
very very hard to see anything, and thats even if the lighting is bad. It's also very very easy to
do. It can actually be instantly ressettable if you wre table jumping at a resturant too. I did
this trick 5 times to my one friend who knows all my tricks and sleights and after the 5th time, he
still didnt have a clue. It's so easy and packs one of the biggest punches in all of card magic,
you would be crazy not to get this killer effect.
"ADD TO CART"
ps: Did I also
mention that s=is so fun to do, I find myself doing it when Im all alone just to entertain
it's a great trick once you get the hang of it, a little hard when you get it but its worth it, once
its mastered you'll fool everyone. get this trick..
Forget about those who denounce this effect. This is extremely easy and strong! I disagree with
what penguin says about how Sankey's effect is more useful. Sure it is awesome, but no where near
as good as Hollow. Moving a card twice, then on to another card is insane!
About how other
talk about breaking the gimmick:
Don't let that bother you about buying it. If you handle it
properly, braking it will be the last thing on your mind when you do it. Just do the effect
carefully, and the gimmick will last a LONG time!
Jay teaches the effect wonderfully,
you're sure to understand after viewing the Instruction video.
All in all, get this
effect, it's awesome!
