This underground routine is one of the best kept secrets in card magic.

Great, but it should have credits. Report this review

SPLOAT is a good looking effect with a clever method. The gimmick is one that you probably already own (and if you don't, can be purchased from local stores for less than $5).

As another reviewer hinted, the explanation video is quite awkward but does it's job to explain how to use the gimmick. It's pretty easy to perform and just as easy to clean-up.

My only complaint about this is that there were no credits that I saw to anything that came before it. One of the most important things to keep the integrity of our art intact is proper crediting, and I would have loved to see at least an attempt to credit (even if it missed Steve Dusheck's effect that came many years before this one).

Crediting is important. It is sandly lacking in most of the younger magicians.

Hi I am the creator of sploat, I wanted to apologize for not crediting. The thing is I had looked around and have never seen anything like it before so I'm not sure who I'd be crediting. I was not trying to disrespect the art in any way . By the way what effect where you referring to by Steve Dusheck?
