  1. Springing a card into the air and catching it has been a long time loved card reveal. And there are many ways. How do you shoot a card and catch it while doing cardistry or magic?
     
  2. I use my thumb but i catch it in my mouth... theres a video of me doing it in the media section. It's a Shaw Farquar idea and he got it from somewhere else supposedly, but thats not who i got it from at all haha
     
  3. In your MOUTH……………………………………………………that is freakin' AWESOME! :eek:

    y-y-you a-re a GOD

    Can you PM me a link of that video?

    I have tried that so many times but I always never catch it or I end up ruining the cards because they end up with fang marks in them. Just Kidding. But I really need to get that down.
     
  4. you gotta really REALLY SUCK to to be able to do that.







    and i mean that in the nicest way possible
     
  5. The top shot by Lennart Green.
     
  6. yea usually when i do it i go... "that trick really sucks..." then i top change during their reaction, then reveal a 2nd selection. It's been my opener for quite sometime now- i like it because it brings my magic up out of my crotch lol and has two participants and a lot of interaction. It also establishes a skill quickly and that i'm not some other kid with cards...
     
  7. I use a variation of the top shot...created by me..
     
  8. is it just me? i use many of them. Top shot, hot shot cut, Thumb Propulsion, and a bunch more.

  10. ditto! works perfect for me.
     
  11. Any Other Awesome Way, which for me usually ends up tossing the card like a frisbee and hoping it flies pretty.
