Wow, Ron! You certainly find the good stuff! What a joy to watch Fred Kaps perform.

Anyone know the name of the card routine he performs in the "older footage" clip? And where can I learn it?

Its nice to see a true master at work.

When Kaps feigns screwing up, his routining is so precise he accounts for every "uhh" and "oh my." He is a magnificent performer.

So true. I love watching his performances. A friend of mine has a DVD of his performances. I watched a little of it and now I want to pick up my own copy.

I didn't care to much for the salt pour until I watched this video. Now I think I might start performing it.

He is what every performing magician should strive to be like. Describe his magic in one word "FANTASTIC".
The only 3 time F.I.S.M. Winner...Fred Kaps was the very best ever and there will never be another like him, unfortunately.

So anybody know the name and source for the card routine?
Message: Posted by: vinkelhaken (Dec 1, 2006 09:12AM)
Homing card right? But there seems to also be a trick named Homing card which is a card to pocket effekt, in Stars of Magic I believe?

There are two completely different effects named [i]Homing Card[/i]. The one that Kaps performs is Fred Braue's effect, and the one in the [i]Stars of Magic[/i] is Francis Carlyle's card to pocket routine (which is the basis for part of my [i]Relaxation Principle[/i] routine included in my DVDs).

Kaps was an incredible magician. Watch him perform and you'll witness the value of scripting.
