Shadow Splitter is a handmade gimmicked card that allows you to split a card pip’s shadow in two. The more you think about it, the harder you’ll be fooled.

Shadow Splitter was created by a young magician named Hui Zheng. The trick and routine are presented by Rick Lax, and when you purchase Shadow Splitter, you’ll get a download featuring Rick explaining exactly how the trick works, and how it can be performed for a live audience.

The premise of changing a playing card with cutout pips was created by Bizzaro, in his trick, “Shadow Thief.” Hui’s effect builds on Bizzaro’s great idea, putting all the magic into a singular gimmicked card.

If you want to have a magic trick that almost nobody else on the planet has, pick up Shadow Splitter today!

There's a problem Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on August 4th, 2015
Here's the thing, this gimmick is very cool. It's very clever and pretty easy to use.

The bad thing is, the spectator cannot look directly at the card at any time without the card being switch out first. That's BOTH sides of the card that cannot be directly viewed by the spectator without somehow obscuring their vision with movement or lighting. This is no way a practical effect for a strolling magician. Fine for camera.

Also my gimmick broke in 10 mins. Materials are given to fix it, but it is quite precise and i really can't be bother fixing it as I'm never going to use this trick at a show.

Very Blah Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on December 10th, 2016
First, there is no live audience performance, that is the biggest giveaway regarding what this gimmick is all about. Rick does it to his laptop camera at starbucks, rather than to a random person. Second, the trick itself is not that impressive, quite lame, has very little possibilities etc most lay men people realize it is a trick card. Third, in order to perform this trick one must purchase a separate deck because you can't perform it with what's provided in the packet. Fourth,for the price there are plethora of other Rick Lax products and other magic products who are much cheaper and bring about greater reaction ie Binary Code, Ghost Clip,Vuja De, Eraser etc etc. Fifth, the tutorial is like 8 minutes and they teach one literally one trick. Should be a coolbox offer. In all, in my opinion its quite limited and dissapointing. Sorry but I put it in my junk drawer.

I don't like it. Report this review

I honestly cannot think of any situation in which I would use this. This is only going to be good for doing a trick on YouTube. I would strongly discourage anyone from purchasing this.

Diabolical and cool!!! Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on December 20th, 2016
SHADOW SPLITTER is ALOT of fun!! Such an incredible piece of magic that requires minimal sleight of hand for an actual believable routine. The gimmick provided is unique, clever and fascinating. Such wonderful craftsmanship went into the creation of this crazy cool device. I was practicing a move I saw Rick Lax perform on his tutorial (who is, by the way, "bleeping" hilarious!) and as I was doing it I hadn't realized my fiance' was watching me from the stairs. All I heard from behind me was "HOLY (insert expletive)!!" And I turned around to see her eyes bugging out as she was watching me. "THAT'S FRIGGIN AMAZING!" she declared ... which coming from a woman has witnessed me perform thousands upon thousands of card tricks and the like is an impressive statement all on it's own. MAJOR KUDOS, Hui Zheng!! Thanks!

Love this thing. I can't begin to imagine how hard these cards are to make, but somehow Hui has done it. Bravo, sir!

limited quantities Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on October 7th, 2017
I buy this because I believe this would be in limited quantities so limited person can access this. This is the way it was advertise originally...well it still online after months and sometime on Open Box...this is the reason for 1 star remove.

Hand made fragile gimmick (I remove a second star for this). I believe this is way to fragile and will break easily.

Can potentially create a good effect if done in proper place with proper light and minimum audience management.

SUPER EASY-O TRICK LIKE IT! Report this review
Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on August 6th, 2016
THIS IS A SUPER VISUAL TRICK, REALLY EASY TO DO. THE BEST PART IS THERE IS NO OTHER TRICK LIKE IT. I HATE MAKING GIMMICKS, SO THE FACT THAT A MASTER GIMMIC MAKER HAND CRAFTED THE GIMMIC IS JUST A BONUS.

ONCE AGAIN RICK DOES HIS USUALLY GREAT EXPLAINTION.

ONCE AGAIN THIS IS ONLY AVAIABLE HERE AT PENGUIN MAGIC.
GET IT FAST VERY FEW ARE MADE.

SOMETHING DIFFERENT! Report this review
Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on August 18th, 2016
THIS TRICK IS VERY DIFFERENT THAN THE CARD TRICKS YOU DO THE GIMMIC IS BRILLIANT AND STRONG IT TAKES VERY LITTLE TIME TO LEARN

THE ONLY NEGITIVE IS IT SAYS USE THE PERSONS PHONE FOR LIGHT. IT DID'NT WORK FOR ME I HAVE A MINI-TACTIAL LIGHT IT'S ABOUT 3" AND THE LIGHT IS MAYBE 3X STRONGER THAT AN ORDERNY FLASHLIGHT. BUY IT NOW ONLY PEGUIN MAGIC IS THE ONLY PLACE YOU CAN GET IT!
