50 feet over the heads of an audience and back to your hands without moving = difficult.

6 feet over your coffee table in your living room = easy after you've learned the little wrist action necessary for its return.

It's fun to do, so keep pluggin' away!

This is one of those kncky little moves that seems impossible for a couple of days and then suddenly you're nailing it over and over again.

But why ask us? Get practicing!

Good luck!

Hi,

you can find the Boomerang Card on the Jeff McBride´s DVD
The Art of Card Manipulation Vol. 3

A description can you find in

Basic Card Technique by Anthony Norman ( pg. 60 ) and the Magic Atlas by Joshua Jay ( pg. 56 )

The Boomerang card, I agree, IS difficult to do 50 FEET....but 4+ feet isn't at all that hard. You just have to learn the proper way to throw the card up. It is extremely simple once you've got the hang of it. Good luck!

I found impossible to do until Nicholas Einhorn showed it to me personnally after one of his lectures! During a "finding all the spades in order" routine he threw the 7 of spades half way across the room before it came back and was caught between the 6 and 8 of spades in the centre of the deck!
Now I personnaly find it easy!

I've never seen it done 50 feet in the air!
That would be cool!!!
That's all i have to say about that!

Jeff McBride does a good job of teaching it. I rarely actually use it in a routine, but it is really fun to play around with. I wouldn't say that this trick is that difficult, but you wont get it the first, second, third, fourth or fith time you try.

It's hard.

Here is a 29-minute live performance of mine: https://youtu.be/lq2Rj1uf05M

I used to be quite sensitive to criticism; I am much less so now; so, please do criticize my technique, presentation, and posts. It helps me to grow, and I promise to take responsibility and not to be defensive.

There is an excellent description of it in "Now You See It Now You Don't." One of the best ways to start learning it is with a frisbee outside. You can start to learn the angle and physics behind throwing a flat object in the air with spin so that it comes back to you. You'll also learn to compensate for air movement which can still be a problem indoors if there is an airhandling system in play. When translating it over to a card you learn to compensate for lack of weight with extra spin. Learning the angle in which to throw the card is key.
