THis is pretty awesome. Some real neat moments and its something you can pretty much do whenever with a deck of cards. Might try it out at my next walk around gig. Very simple workable method. Another winner!

I just watched this and it's great as to be expected from Nicholas!

The teaching is very clear and concise. Nicholas always has a way to make the gimmick making process easy. I really like that this one is as simple as it is to construct.

As for the effect itself, the rip is very convincing. (if you've ever folded a corner back and forth and then torn it... It looks exactly like what is seen in the effect) The retention of vision when the corner flies back over is really spectacular. Your eyes really do follow it all the back to the card.

Also, Nicholas has a very clever method for making the rip sound of the card which I've never seen before. I think this technique could be used for a few other effects that involves ripping. Don't pass by this awesome idea!

I am in a new place and don't have access to all the supplies I used to, but whenever I can get my hands on the materials, I definitely want to make this up. Once I make it up, I'll try to film it!

Great job again Nicholas! Keep them coming!



So many great things said about Flash Flight!
Appreciate you sharing your good experience with this so far!! you'll love performing this over and over...and over Smile

Agreed. You never get such a surgical tear on a playing card.

I must say this looks great! Good job on creating this. I will definitely be getting this.

To the comment saying you never get a perfect tear: you are wrong. Have you ever creased a card? If so you would know you can easily get a perfect tear.

I do a similar effect without the illusion of it floating back. Honestly this brings that to the next level and is definitely surprising. I could see this getting great reactions.

The thing that is great about this is that you can apply the concept to other things. Patrick Kun put a killer version on his Facebook page. Nicholas outdid himself here! Even though it may look simple, all the little details make this awesome!

Lots of tricks have cards torn with nice straight edges, don't see a problem with that.

Hi All

Man I love this, purely because of the simplicity behind it, and its super visual, took this out to a gig a few days ago and it got great reactions, the teaching is well done on the explanation, Nicholas goes into great detail about the handling etc.

All in All a great little effect, simple and powerfully visual.

Great stuff Nicholas and the Sensor Magic team.

Look forward to seeing what you come up with next.

Recommended.

All the best

I almost never post but came out of hiding to give props to Nicholas Lawrence for creating a beautiful, practical, worker. The method is 10 times simpler and better than I expected. Kudos. This is really great.

Really nice. Does what it says on the tin and the handling is well thought out. If you like what you see in the trailer, you can't go wrong. Fast, visual effect with a big wow factor!

Very good effect and easy to make gimmick.
Making the tear sound realistic is a very genius idea from Nicholas.
For 5 bucks you get this effect + free effect (Pin Clip).

This does look nice and very similar to shin Lim and his trick called Flight.

i don't know who came out first but they are clearly the same trick
my comment really here is that flash flight does seem to be a bit cleaner and more visual than "flight"

flash flight is just that a flash of flight and boom the magic is done. its much more of a visual what the heck moment than the other version.

tempted to get this just to have a quick and simple impromptu effect;
