"Stunning visuals and an absolutely brilliant method. This takes a classic many of us are familiar with and truly catapults it to another level!! Had me saying how in the h#%&??" -Oz Pearlman

"At first I thought Nick was showing me an old standard, and then I lost my mind when he handed me the card. Brilliant update." -Erik Tait

When the brilliant Dan Harlan saw what Nicholas Lawrence did to his classic Hover Card, he said "My vision of a self-contained close-up levitation has finally been perfected."

Only available at Live Magic Expos until today, this is without a doubt the best card levitation of all time. It fools everyone.. ESPECIALLY magicians who thought they knew the secret. There's no threads, and now seemingly NOTHING AT ALL.

Imagine a SIGNED card floating off the top of a pack of cards, and while it's hovering in mid-air, you pluck it out of the air, show it on both sides, then gently place it back IN SPACE. IN SPACE, MAN!!! Then, as if that wasn't already enough, you can prove it's not connected to the pack by pulling the top card of the deck off, then the next card and the next card if you like. And if THAT isn't enough.. with complete control, you make the card float back onto the deck AND IMMEDIATELY HAND IT OUT. Did I mention it was signed?

If you want a levitation that's close-up, uses no threads and has absolutely NO EXPLANATION, this is a no-brainer.

-Acar

Good effect if planned..Angle Heavy Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on May 28th, 2017
Let me start by saying that until now I have only given 1 or 5 star reviews. This effect lands perfectly in the middle for a couple reasons.

1. It looks great!
2. The gimmick is stiff.
3. It fools anyone standing in front of you
4. It is very angle heavy despite what the video says
5. The gimmick broke once already
6. The gimmick is easy to repair

This list continues on and on in this fashion. In short I love this trick for a planned performance,but the video leads you to believe you can do this walk around. That simply isn't the case, and the gimmick is too delicate to use for walk around in my opinion, especially when it comes to ditching.

Great effect, not perfect.

COOL EFFECT Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on May 24th, 2017
I'd have given it 5 Stars but I in handling I ddiscovered that in spite of having "COVERAGE" from angle sensitivity it's still something you need to be concious of. If I could handle it more freely I'd have given it 5 out of 5 Stars.

What a beautifully made gimmick this baby is. I was doing it 1 minute after watching the instruction video. Be careful you will fool yourself. This surely will go into your WORKER pile!

Amazing improvements! Report this review
Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on April 28th, 2017
So, I've had Hover Card Plus for about two months now since Magi-Fest in January and all I can say is that I love it! Laypeople are absolutely stunned by the "gravity-defying levitation" and the improvements that were made upon the gimmick (as explained in each of the trailers) make the original Hover Card so much more amazing. I highly recommend that you go ahead and purchase this before it sells out. Congratulations on the fantastic release Nick and Dan.

HOVER CARD PLUS GETS AN A+ Report this review
Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on May 1st, 2017
Got this at the Newark , NJ PM Expo! I have not owned other versions of hover card however, this is the best gimmick that you can incorporate into many routines of card magic. This is completely customizable. Will work on any deck of cards but I prefer using a standard red Rider back. You can even use this on a dollar bill and make the dollar bill levitate. This is a really easy gimmick to make except for the part that enables it to go forward and backwards. This is definitely a five star product. If you do card magic you will not be disappointed. Nick is great, demoing and helping at the expo. If you like this, and do some card magic with mentalism get B-Wave, use these two routines together making it like your taking it all out of a normal deck of cards. Hope you all enjoy and hope this review will help you on your purchase.

One the best floating cards just got a makeover! Report this review
Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on April 30th, 2017
I picked this up from Nick Locapo at the Penguin Expo in Tampa. I've been playing with it ever since. I've always liked Dan Harlan's original hover card, but then Nicholas Lawrence comes along and makes it much more practical. I love the idea of having it be any signed card. It makes it a much more emotional impact. Highly recommend!!!

Performance...? Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on June 25th, 2017
Dan Harlan & Nicholas Lawrence have taken a good effect & made it great with some modern upgrades. It is with the utmost respect that I add my two cents to the reviews herein.
The demo video tells you just about everything you need to know about how the effect looks when performed for a cameraman: stunning. Hover Card Plus appears to be an excellent trick, and is likely to be even better for those moments when a potential audiencemember says, "Oh no, not another card trick."
So, why three stars? Three words: no performance video.
Yeah, go ahead & re-read that, then let it sink in. AT NO POINT during the instructional video do we see an actual start-to-finish performance (live or in studio) of Hover Card Plus. Not by Nick Locapo, not by Dan Harlan, & not by Nicholas Lawrence. We don't even get to see the instructors perform it for one another!
Oh, sure: they TALK about it. They perform PARTS of it. They even tell you how to manage your audience, & how to manage your angles. They also give you lots of tips & other great information. BUT, they never walk you through the performance start-to-finish.
Almost every single set of magic trick instructions begins with a preamble describing what the audience sees prior to revealing the secret. After telling the secret, the instructions will descibe the moves, step by step. And then the better instructions will take you through the performance from the magician's POV with emphasis on what to say, when to say it, & why, what to do, where to stand, best environment to perform, etc.
Sadly, it is entirely up to the viewer to figure out this very important stuff for themselves.
This being the case, I do NOT recommend Hover Card Plus for beginners! Again, with all due respect to the creators & Penguin Magic, I'm actually very surprised that all of you overlooked this. Dan Harlan is ordinarily VERY thorough in his videos about annotating the performance, as is Penguin. I'm simply floored that this went to market without so much as a heavily edited performance for a bunch of Penguin employees. Heck, even performing for an L&L audience would be preferable to none at all!
If Penguin ever decides to add a performance video "bonus" later on, I'll cheerfully update my review to 5 stars. For now, 3 stars.

Not that much change Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on October 7th, 2017
A bit disappointed by the product. Dont get me wrong, this is really well made, and the upgrade version is definitively an upgrade compare to the original one. Therefore, pretty much the same limitation remain. Some will say that in this version you can give the card to the spectator (this would have been a great addition to the trick, but seriously with a bit of skill this was also possible with the original version)

Angle sensitivity remain the same as the original one so I dont think I will use it that much.

Can't stop playing with it! Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on May 16th, 2017
I am stunned at how clever this is. I keep using it to fool myself. I watch and rewatch the card popping off the deck from all kinds of angles. This is the sort of close-up levitation I love. No one will ever figure this one out.
