Hi everyone,

some members mentioned that Jay Sankey has a nice ending for the Ambitious Card Routine in which he uses rubberbands to tie up the deck of cards (somewhat like Daryl's Ultimate Ambition).

My question is: on which video is it taught????

Thanks in advance

I believe that's on Sankeytized I.
It looks great and puts Daryl's ridiculous hunk of gimmick to shame. Why anyone would use Daryl's Ultimate Ambition is beyond me.

Yes, Sankey's rubberband finale is very creative, easy to do, and extremely cheap to make...all you need is one rubberband.

I've tried it a few times as a closer and got great reactions!

Geesh...I think Darylls ambitious card finale is the biz...and it works well as I use the rope for a ring and rope routine, whilst getting the rope examined reasemble the deck...never seen as yet Sankeys rubber band finale...could someone please enlighten me...
Just my teo cents worth.

Jay also has a very nice finale to the Ambitous Card from quite some time ago entitled "Top Card". I'd be curious what other magi bretheren approaches there are to this finish. It really is quite good. Smile

You lose the card in the deck and then put a rubberband around the deck. You let the spectator look at the top card to make SURE it's not his signed card. You snap your fingers and have them look again and it's their card. They can take it out themselves.

I agree that Sankey's AC finale great. If you are creative, you will think of different ways to reveal the card at the end. There are plenty of ways f**p the deck.

Platt,
you wrote "Why anyone would use Daryl's Ultimate Ambition is beyond me."

1. Extremely convincing handling.If you could do real magic, you could do it exactly like this.
2. Extremely convincing effect.
3. A rubberband is simply ridiculous compared to a solid piece of rope.

I don't think a piece of rope looks any more natural. A rubberband seems more practical and logical and can actually be applied to Daryl's gimmick as well.
Thought: Why does man kill? He kills for food. And not only food: frequently there must be a beverage.

marko,
your're absolutely right. A piece of rope is far from natural in this context. But it's so *** convincing! People will instantly (and instinctly)realize that it's impossible to manipulate a deck of cards that is wrapped with rope.
Just one more thought: It's not only the ingenious gimmick that makes Daryl's effect so strong. The routining and the proper moment to ring in the gimmick are equally important.

Sankey version is very direct and "magical" also.

Sankeys effect is also very convincing.

A rubberband is an everyday thing that people use every day. A thick rubberband is not a "ridiculous" thing to use.

And why is a deck tightly wrapped in a thick rubberband any less "impossible" to manipulate in the eyes of a layman?

I like daryl's gaff, but IMHO the sankey one is a lot more practical. (no deck switch, no cleanup, and it's dirt cheap and easy to do)

Yeah, I love the cleverness of Daryl's gimmick and appreciate the thought that went into it, but I still think there are more practical and equally amazing ways to end an AC routine.

I made my own ultimate ambition gimmick but I have yet to use it. Its really only practical in a limited circumstances.

I think Sankey is too clever for his own good. I haven't seen, or even heard, of this effect but will go on searching. I LOVE all of his material. What's really nice is that he mostly uses stuff that's already lying around on the tables therefor keeping expenses WAY down. Anyone who hasn't had the privilege of seeing his work is really in for a treat.

Why even bother to slate Daryls Ultimate Ambition. As far as I am concerned it is an absolutely ingenious gimmick. You can't knock it cos every time that I have used it I have got great reactions.
It is the ultimate as the audience is oblivious to the fact that you have switched in the gimmick, and that just makes it all the more impressive.
When you all talk of sankeys, is that the one where you put the band around it in such a way that when you toss it from opne hand to the other it flies out of the deck?

No, that's not it.

We're discussing his "Rubber room rise" which is found on one of the Sanketized tapes and also in a small book he wrote early in his career with Richard Saunders. I think it's called When worlds collide.
