Four Aces turn face-down, one by one, each in a more stunning manner than the last; all done with just the fingertips.

Stunning. Shin's favorite phase is when the third Queen appears as he turns the fan around. This part kills and fools even the most seasoned magician. Shin Lim has been performing this routine for the past 8 years, and has impressed countless magicians with this amazing rendition of twisting the Aces.

Taking inspiration from Guy Hollingworth's 'Waving the Queens,' ShinSplint 2.0 cranks the card-by-card inversion plot into overdrive.

Very misleading Report this review

(This review is for ShinSplint 2.0 by Shin Lim)
I rarely write reviews, either when a product is so good, or when it's so bad. Unfortunately, this one is bad.
The trailer is very very misleading, as it only show the changes (cards turning over), but that is the smallest part of the effect. Getting in and out of the changes is the most part, and the didn't show it at all. Once I bought the trick, I saw why. It is VERY difficult to go in and out of the changes, very illogical and suspicious.
They say that Shin Lim has been performing this effect for 8 years I believe. Well, I highly doubt that. In only two days, I found a much better way of doing some of the moves and clean up. But most importantly, Shin Lim ALSO flashes the moves in the "getting in and out of the changes" when he does it full speed. So if HE flashes the moves, after 8 years, what am I to expect? It's just so bad...
Also, there are no verbal explanation, only a text following the video, which would be fine if there wasn't a water mark of the same font color, covering the first few words of every sentence, so I have to pause and decipher every sentence.
I am not complaining about the difficulty of the effect, I actually did buy it because I need a challenge, but there are difficult effects, and there are effects that just can't be performed. This is one of them. It's too knacky, very hard to hide difficult moves, you are guaranteed to flash most of the time even if you master the moves (like Shin Lim).
I just wish they at least showed a glimps of the "getting into the move" on the trailer, but they didn't, because it flashes.
All in all, I bought many many many products off of Penguin, but this is the worst one so far.
Cheers!

Save your money. The instructional video is so bad! Shin lim doesn't talk throughout the video. Instead he reveals the sleights and at the top of the screen there is a brief description of what to do. What you see in the trailer isn't what you get. Even shin himself couldn't make it look good in the video. The moves are impossible, the angles are atrocious and expects us to do 2 routines without getting caught. He doesn't explain how the moves should be done. This is impractical and you would have to use real magic to perform.

excellent trick - bad explanation Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on July 17th, 2016
(This review is for ShinSplint 2.0 by Shin Lim)
First: The trick is excellent, best version of twisting the aces I know, very visual and you only need a normal deck of cards. But be warned, you have to spend some time to get the handling right every time.
Second: The only reason I have not given 5 stars is the bad explanation and production, bad at least in the follwonig sense. You have to read the explanation and simultaneously(!) watch what Shin Lim shows. Additionally the explanation text is only partially readable because the water mark of the video is 'printed' often partially over the text. The English is not correct, i.e. some words are used in the wrong way and you have to guess what is meant. Shin Lim - as usual I have to say - gives only the bare bones of the work. Details in handling and with respect to important points (for example the condition of the cards and the angles with respect to the Asher Twist)you have to explore for yourself. And sometimes Shin Lim explains something in one way but - if you watch the video performance carefully - does it in another way. Last not least the credits are a joke. For example, only the names of Guy Hollingworth and Lee Asher are cited but not - for example - that Shin Lim uses in principle Lee Ashers so called Asher Twist.

(This review is for ShinSplint 2.0 by Shin Lim)
Great trick. Soon to be in my repertoire. I give myself 6 months to get this down. That time could be cut down significantly if more details were given on the handling. I've had to experiment myself to find those details to get the moves more consistent. He should give all his insights and wisdom developed over the years. Had he done that, I would have given 5 stars because the trick is so good. All subtitled with bare bones instruction. You either get it or you don't.

I don't really care for the 2.0 addition. Very angley in my opinion. And he doesn't show how this could be incorporated to the already established routine. It is a stand alone move.

Get this if you are willing to put in more work then you were expecting. The positive is that it can be done impromptu and looks like real magic when performed right.

Visually stunning but.. Report this review

(This review is for ShinSplint 2.0 by Shin Lim)
This is probably one of my favorite tricks to perform. I'd place it in the middle of intermediate to advanced as it takes a decent amount of practice to not only get the basic moves down but the timing for performance as well. This isn't your standard pick a card kind of trick. But at the same time, the super visual effect will blow spectators away. No gaffs or gimmicks needed, just slight of hand. My one complaint however, is that the teaching in the video is all done using subtitles and video performance, no instruction with his voice at all. For roughly a few dollars more, Shin's at the table offers his work on other tricks, Shinsplint included. The only difference is that 2.0 includes the aces turning back face down while the at the table is all taught through verbal lecture and performance. If you're a person who has a hard time learning without the magician talking you through, get his at the table. If not, the instruction and close up shots on 2.0 are better if you can follow the on screen subtitles and video.

I read the reviews before buying this. Admittedly I was concerned but after messing with it for only a few hours I was getting it down pretty well. One thing I might suggest for those struggling with ANY trick would be - write down all the steps to the method - sometimes that is all it takes to let the brain wrap around it or let it click. Hope it helps.

This trick is amazing, I had watched it on TV performed by Shin Lim and he fooled me everytime. This is a masterpiece of sleight of hand.
