Dont buy this trick! you will never use it. It is obvious how it is done and anyone who blows the floating card will know for sure, (this will happen!)

I thought the same when I bought it, and stuck it in my drawer, filed as 'rejected'. However, I have since used it a couple of times, and it's surprisingly effective when presented amongst other card tricks - it's got a good element of surprise. Don't write it off too quickly!

i think this trick is really quite good actually, just perhaps do not show it first.
Like do a couple of card tricks with ur deck of cards to give the audience the feeling that hte deck of cards is really Normal.
adn then proceed to do the hover card

The 1st time i did it... i made the mistake of doing this trick as my first trick 4 a show. A spectator blew the card, and the whole trick was ruined. afterwards, my viewers weren't as surprised as i wanted them for my following tricks. TIP: if you really want to use this trick, do it after u gained the respect of your viewers.

I made my own hover card and it works just as well as the one you buy.

I myself like the trick I think it works well I also agree that it should not be used in the first part of your act.

This is like the third trick I bought and I was really disappointed! If only I had read that earlier :cry:

it might use a gimmick but it still requires skill. the aim of doing an effect is to perform it without the spectator(s) seeing how. i use this purely as an entertainment prop during other effects. it surprises people, adds a little comedy to a routine, and isnt expected... and of course it happens so quick, noone notices how its done :)

one of those tricks where you should deviate from the written routine!
