It's also in the first year of Magic Menu although it's not credited to Sankey there. Maybe he's not the originator.

I have seen Daryl's gimmick before and I am thinking it that a complete wrap with rope is more impressive than the rubberband, but I would love to see the effect with a rubber band.

Perhaps. Or maybe he just didn't get credited.

Great routine regardless of whoever thought it up first. Smile

It was actually credited to someone else there I think. When I get home I'll take a look unless someone here has access to The Magic Menu - The First Five Years to look at this afternoon.

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


Because it looks awesome and fools people. Why would you use any magic? Why would you use anything? Even if Sankey's is better that doesn't this one sucks.

I first saw the rubber band finale in Magic Menu Volume 1, Issue 2 in "Tricks of the Trade." It was credited to Skip Sansoucie and called "Ambitious Card Finale."
That was the Nov/Dec 1990 issue.

Has Jay released or republished this move on any of his more recent videos/notes?

Hey Ixnay. I've got the "When Creators Collide" book (by Sankey and Sanders) and it shows that Sankey published his "Rubber Room Rise" in 1987 predating the magic menu thing by a good three years. I guess it could have been independently invented, but who knows for sure? It's tough to really know in some of these cases.

As was mentioned by someone earlier, itt can be found on his "Sankeytized #1" video which I'm pretty sure is still being produced.

I've been using the Daryl gimmick with the deck wrapped in a dollar bill and secured by the fat rubber bands you get with brocolli bundles.

I also made one, but mine was a cruder version, because I put a more limited effort into the construction. That was due to my more limited abilities in regards to constructing things Smile. I've actually performed with mine several times, and the reactions were great to very great. But it was home-made and vulnerable to wear and eventually fell apart.
But it was, however, fairly easy to make again, though I haven't got around to it yet. I would say how I made it differently than Daryl, but of course that would expose it so if by some strange chance you want to know, PM me.

I like Daryl's version but the Sankey rubber band version is very natural & no need for a deck switch. It's my favorite method for ending the Amb Card.

Why not simply use the "bent card" ending? I think it is very strong, and you do not need to introduce any additional props, be it a rubberband or a rope. Does anyone have any comments on that?

The bent card ending is good, but the idea of wrapping a rope or a rubber band around the deck is almost like you are setting up challenge or test conditions. Very strong, psychologically.
The difficult must become easy, the easy beautiful and the beautiful magical.

OK this sankey finisher sounds really good. So did we come to a decision on where this can be found?

I know this is an old thread, but looking for some clarification on the Top Card and Rubber Rise on sankeytized 1. Could someone who has it explain what happens to me please (don't want to know how it happens, just to be clear). I have seen Jay Sankey do something where a deck is wrapped in band and thown from one hand to other and selection appears face up, still under the band. Is this the same trick as the one in sankeytized? Does this version use a gimmick or is it just a rubber band thing?

Thanks in advance

Let's say both are good.
As far as for entertainment value, for stage, a rope might look better than a rubberband from a distance.
As far as for entertainment value, for close up, a rubberband might look better than a rope.
Not always all or nothing here, depends on performance circumstances.
Just my 1 cent.

Rklew64: do you have the sankey version? or just talking generically about rope version and rubber band version.

The effect is part of his Extremely Ambitious dvd. Along with some other fantastic Ambitious Card moves.
