I am looking for more info on the One-Handed Pop-Out Move. Who's move is it? Where can I find it in print or video?

It is Aaron Fisher's one hand version of the J.K. Hartmann Pop-Out. I originally learned it off of the hard-to-find Aaron Fisher Video, [i]Control Freak[/i]. Since then, it has been taught in his book, [i]The Paper Engine[/i]. I also believe that Brian Tudor included it in his video, [i]Show Off 2[/i].

Thanks KC, I just picked up [i]The Paper Engine[/i] and I'll have to dig out [i]Show Off 2[/i].

It's basically a swingcut but with ring pulling out... eh?

It's better described as the one-hand version of the two-handed J.K. Hartman pop-out.

K.C. do you do the move with the whole deck? Or do you just use half the deck?

Hey Mark,

I do it with a full deck and with half the deck. I usually have a card selected, and then I do the pop-out as a card rise. Laymen go "Wow" because they have no clue as to how it's done, magicians tend to go "Wow" because I can actually do the move.

I use half a deck when I do it in both hands. That's when I want to show off for other magicians.

I am still having problems with this moveó I keep dropping the bottom half of the deck when I do the move. Is there a way for me to prevent this? What might I be doing wrong?

You hold the bottom half with your middle finger. That's how I prevent the bottom half from falling down.

Do you use your pinky to help keep that card from swinging to the right?

I saw this pop out move for the first time the other day and I am glad this thread was already in progress so I could find out where to learn it and who's move it is.

Aaron's move also appeared in MAGIC magazine many, many years ago as well. (when Richard Kaufman published a column in it) I am not sure how much, (if at all) the move had changed since he first released it.
