Watch a card visually twist itself so that the outside edges are now the middle of the card. This wild gimmick creates an inverted playing card that will drive your audience wild. This is Split Ends by John Shack.

Split Ends is a gimmicked card that visually pops itself inside out. What looks like an ordinary playing card suddenly transforms, so the outside edges are now the middle. Just give the self-working gimmick a toss, and it transforms in mid-air. Along with the amazing gimmick, you’ll learn three routines from The P3 Magic Crew that you can start performing right away.

Ambitious With A Twist
The main handling, created by David Newell, has an audience member select a card. The selected card is lost in the middle of the deck and then magically jumps to the top. The card gets lost in the middle of the deck again. Then, with a snap of the fingers, the selected card not only rises to the top of the deck but also jumps off the top of the deck and inverts itself. The inverted card is then given away to the audience members as a souvenir.

Alternate Handling
Nick Popa teaches a fun alternative handling to Ambitious With A Twist that transforms the inverted card back into an ordinary card so that you can keep your examinable cards for many more performances.

Inverted TNR
Dalton Wayne finishes up the project by teaching a super easy torn and restored card using the examinable cards. A selected card is torn length-wise, and then the magician uses a lighter to weld the pieces back together inverted, creating an impossible souvenir.

When you purchase Split Ends, not only do you receive the innovative Split Ends gimmick, but also receive 7 specially printed examinable inverted cards so that your audience can take home an impossible object after your performance. Split Ends unique gimmick is easy to reset, built to last, and creates a wild visual that will have your audiences screaming. Turn your card magic inside out with Split Ends by John Shack.

I wanted to use this for my audiences before putting in a review, and this visual transformation is a beautiful hit, and I’ve already heard people telling their friends afterwards as something big they remembered.

I already have an effect where I rip a card in half vertically, so this trick added such a bonus hit to my routine!

Great product, easy to use right away, incredibly visual!

I purchased two sets of these from John Shack at a lecture and wow! The gimmick is well made, and the effect is as visual as it gets. The instructions are clear and there are so many ways to present this. I cannot recommend this enough.

I liked the gimmick and the gimmick replacement move. It has a nice surprise effect that shocks your audience. Not hard to do once you master the easy move.

Great Effect Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on October 8th, 2022
This is a wonderful effect. Plays well to a small audience.

The only shortcoming is I could not download it to my Magic folder.
