"Kyle has such a unique approach to creating magic and Hole-Some is the perfect example of his brilliant thinking. You simply should not be able to move a hole on a card, without gimmicks, and have it look this good! Its just not fair." - David Jonathan

Take control of nothing. Moving hole effects have captured the imagination of audiences for decades. The ability to punch a hole in an object, and then move it around so that the audience can clearly see through the hole when it’s in different locations is the ability to control matter itself. From the quirky mind of Kyle Purnell comes a moving hole effect that’s completely impromptu, and completely examinable. This is Hole-Some.

Here’s what happens:

A card is selected and signed. A hole is very clearly and cleanly punched in the corner of the signed card. First the card box is used to drag the hole from one side of the card to the other. The audience can clearly see through the hole before and after it is moved. The box is put down and at the performer’s fingertips the hole is once again dragged back across the card. The card can then be given away as a souvenir of an impossible memory.

Hole-Some uses no complicated gimmicks, and requires no special gadgets to accomplish this wildly visual effect. The only thing you need is a deck of cards and a hole punch. The entire effect uses easy to do sleight of hand that is expertly taught by Kyle. The card they sign is the card that has the hole punched in it, and is the card they get to keep. Take control of nothing with Hole-Some by Kyle Purnell.

Hole-some really is some trick! Report this review

Let me preface this review to say that I am biased. Kyle Purnell is a great friend of mine. However, I will be giving an honest review, so don’t let that information taint the validity of what I am about to say. Kyle is one of the most creative magicians out there. His out-of-the-box thinking, as far as methodology and presentations are concerned, create astoundingly engaging and fooling effects. This one is no exception. This effect utilizes some creative methods that you will love, and can apply to your own thinking and magic. All you need are a deck of cards and a hole-punch…and a bit of practice, naturally. This is perfect for walk-around situations or a closer for a card sequence. You might think to yourself, “I don’t want to carry a hole-punch with me,” or “I don’t even have a hole-punch!” To answer those questions, we magicians carry around coins in a purse and a deck of cards in a clip all day, why not? And chances are you probably have a hole-punch in a drawer. If not, you can buy one for like 2 bucks at a drugstore. Okay, okay, but Travis, I don’t have 2 bucks. Never fear!! You can learn a fantastic torn and restored card you can do anytime until you scrape together 200 pennies. Let’s look at the plus points for Hole-some:
- Requires literally no set-up
- No clunky Gimmicks or glues, magnets, elastic dental dam.
- This effect is highly self contained. If you wanted to, you could repeat the effect immediately
- It can be done with their signed card! Which means: Souvenir. One of the best things you can give your audience is a souvenir.
Aside from the content of the effect, Kyle leaves no stone unturned. His teaching is brutally thorough, well thought out, and easy to follow. Long story short, he knows this effect inside out. You will learn some incredible techniques and Kyle goes in depth on, not only the mechanics, but the psychology behind it. And it is bloody brilliant.
Okay, time for some negative points:
- You are left with an incomplete deck
- You are carrying with you a hole-punch
Although everything I said about carrying a hole-punch in the beginning of this review is true, I also can’t see myself carrying one around simply for this effect. This means that I am not sure this particular effect is meant for the hobbyist, but more for a worker, and trust me, this is a working effect. Kyle has a local restaurant magic residency, so you know this has been audience tested to the max. This being said, I think you should still invest in this even if you are a hobbyist. There will be opportunities to do so, and the techniques you learn in this download will still benefit your magic even if you never perform the exact effect taught.
The fact that you are left incomplete is another issue. As a hobbyist, of course. It requires you to destroy a deck and hand out the souvenir. The deck is now incomplete, so this would have to be a closer or you may need to have several decks on you if you are performing this walk-around. Again, this for a working magician, so you can be buying decks all day for your shows, but a hobbyist may not be able to keep destroying decks for one effect. I would recommend performing this with a very used deck that you would be throwing out anyway and don’t mind losing cards.
All-in-all, this is a great trick and I highly recommend it.

Almost Impromptu Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on May 22nd, 2021
Very smart thinking, You just need to remember to bring a hole punch. The first phase has only a slight angle issue and you don't end clean, but you get to hand out the signed card they saw the hole move on and there is no gaff to make and yes you could use a borrowed deck but don't think would like to end up with a short deck. All in all a really nice effect and one I might keep in my back pocket for a pack of scrap cards.

Very Clever Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on May 17th, 2021
This is a very clever method. There is no gimmick but an extra card is destroyed. The handling is “cozy” so I’m not sure how many people this would play for at a time but Kyle is a clever guy and I am happy with the purchase. For me 5 stars is gold, crazy practical, do it all the time kind of trick. Not sure this is that

I’m speechless Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on May 13th, 2021
This is taking the hole in card plot to a hole new level!! No pun intended!! This effect has so much to offer. In most moving hole routines the gimmick card has to be switched out at the end of the routine. What’s nice about Kyles version is when the hole moves to its final place the card can immediately be handed out to the spectator. Kyle is truly a genius for coming up with this idea!! You also get a great bonus idea for a torn and restored corner. Please don’t purchase this effect I want to keep it all to myself.

Worth $10 just to see how it's done Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on May 13th, 2021
Make sure you have a hole punch that auto catches the punched card. Old school ones just create confetti on the ground. ;)

Bonus torn and restored alternate at the end.
