Love the looks of this. I just wonder how the clean up is- if after the FLIK you have to come back to the deck with the card before handing it out? This part is not shown on the demo.

Anyone?

Got the answer- Alex was kind enough to PM me with a response. Thank you Alex! Best of Luck with FLIK- a very nice visual effect!

Everything is well covered on the DVD Smile the handling is quite easy, you really don't need to be a sleight master to accomplish Flik Smile

If you have any, even if you think they are dumb, question, don't hesitate to shot me a pm Smile

I truly was amazed at how simple it was to perform. It surprised me the first time I did it.

I almost fooled myself with the trick I was performing.

I like the eye popping moment and designed it to be like that. So even if you know how it works and everything, it's still a magical moment. So imagine people who don't know how it works !

This was the trick that people talk to me after, when I meet them again.

You don't have to hold the card vertical, as at the beginning of the trailer, you can have the card horizontal and people watching down Smile

How durable is the gimmick?

Thank you.

The gimmick should last some times. I use mine, something like 4 to 5 times a week (having practiced before with it, loads of time) and the gimmick is still here ! Maybe it will last 300/400 hundred Fliks (it's an approximation, maybe yours will last a little less but mine have more than 300 Fliks and it works perfect !) and even if you think it doesn't work as well as the beginning, you have more material in the DVD to repare it or remake others gimmicks Smile

Another review from someone on the youtube page :

"I back up what Alexis says. The hole punched in the spec's card is real and they can examine it. They then see the hole move in an instant as you flick it... it is still a real hole and they can see clearly through it. And of course they can keep their holed signed card as a souvenir
Alexis explains the handling and presentation well and the video is concise
It's a nice effect even when you know what to expect; but particularly powerful for the spec who doesn't know what's coming"

I don't mean to sound ignorant, but is that first transition, with the card just on the table and not touched - is that actually possible to do? Because the freaked me out! That's definitely not possible, and if it is, sign me up!!!!

At 17 seconds into the trailer is the moment I'm taking about.

Well is it Smile the only thing is that you don't have as control as the Flik one. But it's doable Smile

Kyle shows a complete performance of the effect in the real world in his show. This answers some of the questions posted above. I just received this. I have not performed it yet but it does some quite practical and does look as good as the demo. Although a small detail, it does not quite come with everything you would need to make up a red version although I am sure you could do so with little effort.

Thanks Kyle !

And thanks Xcath Smile as you state, it looks as good as in the video. And yes, with some thought, you can make a red version of it easily.

I had an idea as to the method before purchasing and thought I would be dissapointed if it used the method I was thinking. My curiousity got the best of me and I purchased this.

I just received it and the method is totally different from what I thought. Very practical, very effective, very nice!

Love it!

I don't own this yet... I bought it and its on the way. I'm really looking forward to it.... I had one little concern and I thought I would contact Alexis. I was sure surprised by his helpfulness and willingness to answer my question. To be honest, as well as I like the effect, I certainly could live without it. HOWEVER, after speaking with him (via email) I found that I really appreciated his effort and I decided to purchase. I'll give a real review after it arrives and I've worked with the gimmick.

In the meantime, THANK YOU Alexis. I appreciate your time. We need people like you! Smile

best to all,
Bk

Can you believe I've been wrong on

I'm hoping I'm wrong, but need to ask this question since now with reviews I've seen this done a number of times, and each time, and left confused as to what the spectator is supposed to actually think.

They sign their name on the left side of the card.

You punch a hole in the left side of the card.

You then Flik the hole to the right side of the card.

You hand them back their card and the hole is WHERE? In the demos I've seen, it looks like the hole is exactly where you originally punched it - on the left side of the card. If so, I'm not sure what the end result is supposed to be - is it supposed to be that the hole jumped back as well? Because the demos don't show that, yet when I see the spectator holding the card at the end, that's where the hole is - right where it was punched.

Or have the demos I'm watching been done poorly and the hole is on the right side (in this example) when you hand them back the card?

Thanks,
Bart

Not sure what demo you've seen, Bart. From what I can see, the whole is punched when the card is face down. Since there is no "left side and right side" of a face down card and since the whole moves to a symmetrical position on the opposite side of the card -- there is no inconsistency at all. The only inconsistency would be if you showed the face of the card after you punched the whole but before you moved it (which I wouldn't do).
