Personally, I owe my card and ball manipulation routines that I regularly perform in my act to sleights that I mostly learned from McBride’s earlier videos. I consider his lessons to be a gift to the magic community that are worth far more than what they cost-among the most useful videos I have ever purchased. Thank you, Jeff McBride.
McBride offers various ways to spin cards as well as methods for shooting cards out of the deck so they spin and arc through the air. There are quite a few techniques so you’re free to select and work-up those that would best be featured in your routine.
While some of the techniques have been explained in McBride’s earlier manipulation videos, this DVD provides new variations and the complete work on performing McBride’s amazing “floor bouncing” where cards are rapidly spun and thrown from a deck and bounced off the floor. All this, with the deck held in one hand. Of course, if you can bounce cards off the floor, you can also get tremendous heights in your card spins. For the first time, McBride unveils a secret gimmick that assists in this endeavor and general card spinning.
I probably increased the height of my spins to almost 15-feet, perhaps a 30% increase. And I could spin more cards in a shorter amount of time without having to re-grip the deck as I normally do. This gimmick truly works.
