Greetings...

Anyone else get this effect?

I'm having some trouble with the setup. It seems the gimmick I got is a lot smaller than that described in the manual.... made it very difficult to accomplish initial step. Then second step was a mess too...

At this point, after fiddling with this for a few hours just trying to perfect the setup, I cannot recommend this effect! I will have to spend more money for some "extras" to continue working with setup...

hey i have this effect and me and you know if you can get it right it is true magic..... i know what you mean about the setup, the card gets bent very badly and kevin says this one card can be used for many preformances..... wierd hey... i am starting to work on it though and i only changed the first step,the palming.... for the black balloon i just have the card resting on top and reach in and then put it in palm... don't ask me why i do it when it is a sucker effect but.....
i guess buy a bigger tube

This may sound weird but I use balloons with a larger neck and I put the gimmicked card in my mouth and streach the balloon over the card I then imeaditly blow it up or else the balloon will squeeze the card too much. My setup is a lot like Airtight. To me it seems like I am giving too much away to the audiece talking about palming and all of that. Could someone PM me if they aggree or give me some thoughts on that. I think the trick would be better if they could sign the card.
Please keep me updated on how you pratice goes.

Thanks for bringing up this thread armagician. I was looking for a way to get a card inside a balloon... I may check this out in the future.

Too bad you can't give the balloon and the card inside of it as a souvenir to the spectator who selected the card.

You can. Balloon switch.

This is not a practical solution... You need to have a big container to hide the balloons to do the switch.

Do you need a pk ring? How does that little bit hang off before it drops? I'm having trouble!
