Hi guys!

It's been a long time since Jason Brumbalow has been able to create for the magic community, but Banshees are finally here.

[youtube]Qbp4ghaUSqQ[/youtube]

They are the first deck of playing cards to be engineered specifically for card throwing. Plastic body for durability and die cut to create a sonic 'whiz' when cutting through the air. They have also been equipped with a measuring system on the faces to measure your piercing skill progress and you become more and more proficient with your throwing.

These really are fun if you're into throwing cards.

Pre-Sale starts today at participating dealers.

Here's vid of the studio guys using the Banshees. Note, these guys are NOT pro card throwers and still get some good sound out of them. ;)

Hey guys,
If you want to learn more about card throwing... you have the opportunity to interact with Rick Smith Jr in the Café's Creator's Spotlight.

If you don't know who he is....He is the feature performer on Velocity : High-Caliber Card Throwing System by Rick Smith Jr. - DVD
...AND is the WORLD RECORD holder in card throwing.

He is on the Café answering questions in the Creator's Spotlight on the Café.. http://www.themagiccafe.com/forums/viewforum.php?forum=367&11

On the DVD he talks about building a show around card throwing and so much more beyond just throwing cards.

Rick is a great guy ,and boy can he make the Banshee cards scream!

I have both the Velocity DVD and a deck of Banshees throwing cards. I HIGHLY recommend both.

The DVD really teaches just about everything you would want to know about card throwing. Not only does it teach how to throw, but a ton of info on slicing different vegetables. It also has great info on how to incorporate card throwing into your shows.

This is a MUST DVD for anyone who even thinks they might do a little card throwing. I was surprised to find out that it is NOT THAT hard.

Now, for the Banshee cards. They are really nice because they are made of plastic, modified to whistle when thrown, and have a cool target looking measurement print. I like them because they can be thrown over and over and they won't bend. If you hit a wall hard enough, the corner will chip, but I found that I can still throw the card with the corner chip.

I remember hearing about these when they came out. I'm not sure if it's just the audio quality on the videos I'm seeing, but I wouldn't call this a "whistle". It's just .. an air disturbance?

Any videos floating that really showcase a whistle sound?

I saw in the posted video that they could break glass. That is truly impressive. Good job!

One small correction about my post, as the way it was phrased, may confuse people.
This is not a new video instructions specific to Banshees but an excerpt from Velocity.
