Customer reviews for The Float Switch
Great Switch. Slightly high for a simple explanation, but I'm happy. I recommend the purchase to everyone.
This is a pretty move. Very soft with a logical flow. Visually quite beautiful and very practical.
Ok, as a "beginner plus" / "intermediate minus" card handler with small hands, this is a challenging sleight. The directions are brief at around 5 minutes, but they are crystal clear and demonstrated in a way that there is no doubt how to do the switch. I'm finding it to be a pretty good sleight to master to improve my skill set. My first mistake was using some VERY stiff poker sized card. I'll be better served with my small hands using bridge sized cards that aren't so stiff. I'm assuming those variables are pretty well known for the more advanced card manipulators. All in all, this should be doable with the recommended practice. I'm about one hour in and see that this will take me lots of hours of practice. Which I shall do.
What a great sleight to add to an Arsenal. The video is a little over 5mins long. Short and sweet, right to the point. The concept is easy to grasp in theory but will require diligent mirror practice to make sure you’ve got the right sight lines. Going to enjoy practicing this til it’s polished. If you like a good challenge and a little flair this will fit right into your moves.
This is a nice little sleight that will go straight into my walk around repertoire. You'll need a dusting of practice (much like with any card move) but once you have it down this is sure to be a favorite. The video is well produced and is straightforward. Calen goes through step by step with multiple angles and subtleties. The price is a tad high for just a sleight but then again it's the price of a Starbucks on the West Coast.
A great switch, a little monotone, and the last part of the trick where you loose the card in the middle is missing. Its seen in the video but that is a key part of the trick.
I found this monotone, dull and somewhat hard to follow. To those who are skilled it's easy to see how the truck works and for that I was greatfull. Perhaps a better explanation and in addition a better view from the magicians standpoint. It was a 3 minute video...what's the rush!?
