Hello!

Just wanted to let you know about my new trick 'Cyclone Card'.

Basically I was challenged years ago at the IBM convention in Cleveland to make a card change while spinning it. I came up with a method on the spot and made up a crude mock up but after years and years I am proud to say I am happy with the mechanics and workings of it. Essentially you hold a card and show both sides and flick it so it spins. When it stops spinning it has changed to a different card and you can show the back again if you like.

A nice added bonus is you can have a large sticker signed which you stick to the face of the King and yet the sticker still remains exactly where it is after the change. Amazing huh? Smile

Some nice presentation ideas are as follows:

*Show your prediction card to be incorrect. Flick it and it corrects itself.
*Have two cards selected and your card changes to match both predictions.
*Do a card transposition effect where you give the 3 Clubs to a spectator while you hold the King of Clubs. Yours now changes to the 3 Clubs and the spectator turns over their card to show the King Clubs.

The card is 100% gaffed naturally and made of plastic for durability.
It is not available yet - perhaps towards the end of the year as they are rather complex to make by hand.

Have a look at the video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Q1w1vzj-SbY

It will not be Bicycle stock or design. Is this an issue to you all? It is presented as the 'lone' prediction card so maybe it does not matter if it does not match Bicycle branded cards.

Would you prefer a DVD with it? Having said that there is not much to learn other than flicking it.

Any feedback on being able to provide exactly what you would like is appreciated.

Best wishes,

Angelo.

This sounds and looks very promising, excelent piece of work there.

One question, can you spin the card with one hand to make it change instead of flicking it?

also, I love the idea of the sticker staying on the card, very cool.

lastly, I would prefer it to be Bicycle design however.

Well done, looks excellent.

Looks very nice... though would prefer on bikes, it's no biggie as you just routine it so that they done see the back at that point... or... I'd have it as a prediction card (diff makes it good this way), and I'd make the prediction be wrong, then flick to change to the right one etc.

Looks cool.

Nice, it would be cool to have it on Bikes, but whatever is cool too. Would we also learn how to make these, or is it more effective to buy them as we need them?

A beautiful change! I !@#ume that if you take the sticker approach then you cannot hand it out, correct? Still look forward to this!

Very Nice!! Great job!!

I'll have to go with the Bikes would be better (At least for me) opinion as well though. The change with a sticker sounds unbelievable!!

The effects on the DVD and lecture notes are far beyond your abilities. (They require mastery of the mechanic's grip.) It would only break your heart.
Sincerely,
Darwin Ortiz.......(This post has got to be in my top 5.)

I @ssume you cannot hand it out either way.
My guess is, also, that the construction of the gaffed card doesn't work with the design of the Bicycles, and requires a more pattern friendly back.

Looks great though, and many will pick this up despite any limitations, because it looks so good.

Thanks for the feedback so far. As it is an ultra gaffed card (has to be by the very nature of the effect)it cannot be handed out for examination however there is nothing stopping you from switching it for a regular duplicate. You cannot have it soin by itself. It needs to be flicked. Yes the back design is important but only if you want to show the back of the card. I knew everyone would prefer a bicycle back design Smile

Angelo, it's exactly that switch to another card (or getting/making more of them) which leaves me less than enthused about the item. It's so tempting to say "let me see that card" and if it's not both utterly ordinary looking (ie familiar) and part of a pack...

Will you be offering instructions on how to make more for oneself?

Also tempted to ask about how the setup is for that change is it's so stunning as to invite routined use.

Jonathan, show me or create a trick where a card visually changes into another card while spinning and that can be immediately examined. Alas I don't know how to do real magic. Smile

It has to be gimmicked if it cahnges while it spins. Its not a normal colour change with sleight of hand.

There are SO many tricks out there which cannot be examined such as Brainwave Deck and other gaffed decks and packet tricks. It all depends on how you present a trick and how fair it seems and then you would not need to worry about people asking to see the card. You do not have to switch it out. It is just an option. I never do. I take it out of a leather business card holder and show it as my prediction card which is wrong so I change it and replace it back in my case.

Best wishes,

Angelo

First of all, great song choice. Brings me back to the Ammar series of videos I had as a kid.

Secondly, I really like the change. It's so visual. I do have some of the concerns that Jonathan mentioned, but I'm sure I could incorporate the change into a routine where there's less of a "let me look at it" attitude.

Just change it, immediately put it away and move on to the next trick. Don't see examinability as being an issue if handled correctly.

I like the change - just want some options to hand them something at some point which they can hold and touch. I know they aren't looking for mechanical stuff and just want to touch the props. People are like that. It's when you imply they can't touch the props that they get "that look".

I like it.

The back doesn't bother me a bit.....it looks like a KEM card, and with only one card only magi will know the difference.

On a tangent, I absolutely love KEMs. Not for magic, but just for their longevity and feel. If you've never experienced a deck of KEMs before, I highly recommend them. They're expensive, but they last such a long time, especially if you take care of them.

Yes it is a KEM deck. Back design works perfectly for this trick but I am sure Bicycle may be just as good too! I used KEM because they are plastic cards.

Plastic sounds more durable, even without knowing the method!

KEM card backs are pretty well known these days, it's not like it's kittens or scenes of Italy on the back.

Would the Bicycle being paper make the gaff less durable?........if so KEM's make more sense?

BTW.....did I mention that the effect looks REALLY good!!
