"I literally love this trick. It's my favorite moving hole effect. It's something I will continue to carry on me to any gig or performance I'm doing." -Dalton Wayne

Visually remove a hole from a card, and put it in a card your spectator is holding. You read that right. They are holding the card the hole appears in. They can keep it. There are no complicated gimmicks or refills. This is one of the craziest moving hole effects you’ve ever seen. This is Hole Hopper by Jay Grill.

Here’s what happens:

A card is signed by the spectator and then torn in half. The audience member holds one half of the card, and the magician holds the other. The magician introduces a hole puncher, and punches a hole in their half of the card. With a small rub the magician visually restores the hole in their half of the card. The magician then shows their hands empty before they rub the half of the card the spectator is holding and the hole appears. The spectator can keep their half of the card as an impossible souvenir.

The gimmick for this trick is easy to make, and you can make multiple gimmicks in just a few minutes. All you need to perform this effect is a hole punch and a spectator who’s about to have their reality turned inside out. There is no complicated sleight of hand or fragile gaffs that you’ll be afraid to take into the real world. Your audience will never forget Hole Hopper by Jay Grill.

You know I’ve seen a lot of moving hole tricks and if there was a holy grail of this effect, I think this would be it. I laughed at the simplicity and ease upon which to make the gimmick and be as clean and ready to go when you want. This really is a great trick worth 10 bucks.

Always wonder if the demonstration video is as accurate/realistic as performing the trick after receiving. In this case I would have to state my performance of the trick can be as identical as seen in the demonstration video. Very clever and worth the price of download. Will certainly be performing the hole hopper for friends and family.

The Good:

The price for the download is reasonable and it is a good method but with one caveat

The gimmick is quick and easy to make

The video is clear on the method for making the gimmick

He does explain the handling to some extent but...

The Less Good

The gimmick is well camouflaged on one side, if you put it where he suggests, but not so much on other side if someone is looking at the area. It is small but it is there.

He doesn't really show that side of the card close-up in the video without moving the card around. The movement does make it harder to pick up but since this is a close-up illusion, you do have be a bit careful in how you show the card.

At one point, he does says that you could hand them the card but that he advises against it. I will be clearer, in my opinion, you can not let the spectator handle the card until the effect is done without a fairly high risk of tipping the gaffe.

Some actual performance video showing his handling of the card after the selection, or suggestions for more cover would be useful.

This is probably not for the beginner unless you have some pretty good misdirection skill.

Black hole? Report this review

Parallel universe theory tells us black holes connect parallel universes. Tearing the card in half creates the parallel universes and moving the “black hole” from one universe to the other creates the connection. Love mixing science and magic.

This is so elegant and watching people try to pull the hole off their card is a great moment. Really easy to do, you do have to carry the hole punch with you which is a little strange to spectators but once they see what you do they don't care.

People go ballistic when you perform this. It appears as though you're performing a genuine miracle. It's crazy how simple and easy it is to perform. This is a killer trick. So clever.

Buying magic can be intimidating these days. A trick looks cool and simple enough to do then you buy it and find out you have to make your own gimmick and you need double stick tape, rubber cement, six arms.. you get the idea. With this, it really is straight forward! Yes, you do have to make your own gimmick but, all you need is a single hole puncher and it's super easy! You'll be performing in no time. Perfect for the close up street magician as well as someone just looking to show off to friends and family!

I don't find myself writing too many reviews and I find myself typically disappointed by most magic tricks I buy. But this one is a good one. Simple and hard-hitting.
