Hollow by Menny Lindenfeld A VERY well made version of the moving holes on a card.
List price:$30.00
Price: $19.50
You save: $10.50 (35%)

If you're considering this effect you may also want to check out Public Transit by Jay Sankey.

Phase One: The magician punches a hole through a freely chosen and signed card. He covers the hole with his finger tips and mysteriously slides the hole to a totally new location on the card! The hole is real and the spectator's can see right through it!

Phase Two: At his command, without covering it, the hole visibly jumps to a third location on the card!

Phase Three: The magician then takes another card, slides it over the chosen card, and the hole visibly jumps from the chosen card to the second card!

Both cards can be given to the spectator as souvenirs!

Hollow... an indepth review Report this review
Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on April 3rd, 2010
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 big deal.

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.

Well, this is definitely something different. The problem is that you're doing something that is physically impossible, so the spectator will know some sort of gaff is involved. As soon as the first hole move happens, you will be under severe scrutiny as they try to see how the gaff is working. I prefer effects where the action is happening during misdirection, rather than when you've practically invited the spectator to burn your hands.

Not that the handling isn't very difficult; all you need to do is get comfortable with the gimmicked card, and you need to be able to do a double lift. But under pressure, the possibility of fumbling with the gimmick doesn't seem out of the question.

And as for the comment at the end of the demo video, everything is NOT completely examinable. Yes, they can examine their card and the card with the hole in it, but that's not "everything".

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.

Can't get much better than this! Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on April 2nd, 2010
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 gimmick.

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.

Best Card Trick EVER!!! Report this review
Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on May 12th, 2008
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.

VERY VERY GOOD TRICK Report this review

Put it this way, if you like the following effects...

Kids Cards
Invisiible Deck

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.


ps: Did I also mention that s=is so fun to do, I find myself doing it when Im all alone just to entertain
