O.K. I have seen various ones advertised, but don't know which one is right for me, so how do these compare to each other

Frequent Flyer - Bob Solari's Floating Card - LiftOff - Bornstein Floating Gimmick

I have the Bornstein floating bill, which could be adapted to a card, but the other three, I do not know about. Are they all similar gimmicks? or is one vastly better than the others and why?
I'm not fishing for method, I just don't want to buy all of them to find one that suits me. I hope that makes sense.

I do a floating card to end an ambitious card routine. Sometimes I just bury the card one time via a DL and then float the card. I do it with a l**p.

Even Magicians don't see it coming.

Use your imagination. You may find that you don't need anything more than this. VERY magical.

As previously mentioned, buy the Hover Card. It gets a great response close up or on stage, no threads, last almost forever. Relative few angles. Cannot be done surrounded but with proper body blocking you can cover most all situations.

Nice thing about Hover card is just get the special card and have the duplicate in the deck to hand out. I have a couple different Hover cards so you don't use the same one all the time.

Hi Guys,

I agree fully. HOVER CARD is awesome. I use it all the time when I need to project to a larger audience.

Enlightenment is designed to play one-on-one or to a small group in intimate conditions. A huddle on the streets, a table in a restaurant, etc. Where people can TOUCH.

It can be performed surrounded and with any chosen card. The card may be examined, before, after and during, and NOTHING is added or taken away at ANY POINT. The card may be levitated from an isolated spot on the table, or from your hands, or IN THE SPECTATOR's hands. THERE IS NO CLEAN-UP.

As mentioned elsewhere, we will make a full product disclosure available by FREE download in the very near future. This will explain all you need to know, including the method, so you can make an informed decision.

An important point. Enlightnment is not JUST a Floating Card effect. The method revolutionizes a particular field of our craft. It is a paradigm shift. This is WHY we will be making a full disclosure. By doing so, people will understand that this is the basis for a whole new way of doing things. The method is going to be developed, tweaked and used in various guises for decades.


Cheers

I can also vouch for Hover Card being a very cool effect. It finds its way into my routine when I'm performing behind a bar or the like. It does require some audience control to perform it for a group of people that are not all directly in front of you, but the effect itself is SO easy to perform, that you can focus a lot on the performance aspect.

Ben---I've been lurking the Enlightenment thread pretty much since its conception, and man, I CANNOT wait for it. Imagine the confidence he must have in his product to disclose the full method free of charge. Amazing. I sincerely wish you the best of luck with it.

Thanks guys for all the suggestions. I have hover card, but I don't want a card to float witht he deck held sideways. I want the card to float up from a pack held in the hand flat or on its own from the palm of the hand.

A kind soul here contacted me about a few versions which helped a lot.

At this time, I will wait for the release of Enlightenment. It lookslike that might be exactly what I am looking for.
Thanks again guys
