Magic download (video) by Valdemar Gestur ($14.40)
Trigger is a stunning and surprising effect that looks like trick photography. The solution is impossible to reconstruct, yet seems fair and is easily achieved.
After a card is shuffled into the center, the deck is wrapped tightly with a rubber band, sealing the card within. At your command, the band passes through the entire deck with the exception of a single card, which shoots out from the center for a dynamic and visual effect.
Bonus Material, watch as Valademar Gestur demonstrates several of his favorite applications for this effect.

Customer reviews for Trigger
This is a great effect, but It'll take me a little while to learn. I agree with Casey that there should've been an OTS, but that's beside the point. If you want to blow people's minds, get this.
This is a must for a magician who likes visual magic. I bought this 2 days ago and now I can already perform it. Easy to learn and a method gives you so much more that just 1 trick.
I just bought Trigger and watched it right away. I can honestly say that this is the best rubber band trick you'll find and is in my top 5 for sure. The teaching is super easy to follow and is easy. I would recommend this to a beginner if they were willing to give it the effort. Anyway, the effect is great and I could easily preform it after a couple hours of practice (only because one of the moves is a little tricky). Please add to cart you will not regret it!
It would be rude not to buy this! It's the most amazing rubberband effect I know!
A simple method for a powerful effect? Worth every penny. The technique will require some practice, but once you get it down, spectators will be amazed.
And the method also allows for some variations; as said in the preview video, "you will be able to recreate dozens of effects." Also, I really like the background music in the preview video. Just saying.
With Trigger, you will be able to perform one of the easiest and most shocking effects Dan and Dave to offer. You don't be able to put this trick down once you have learn its workings. Now with Trigger, you are able to have a spectator choose a card and find it by trapping with a very simple, bound object, a rubber band. Pair this trick with another trick, Pixel, also by Dan and Dave, and you will have one unstoppable two-trick routine. You've seen tricks where the magician produces your card in the most bizarre of all places, now you have a trick where the magician finds you card in an un-thought off way. With such a simple method, Trigger will be able to last you a very long time, and with two videos to learn from, you will never want to put it down. Get this now!
This is a great trick. It's gotten great responses for me and once you get the timing right it looks so amazing. I would not recommend this for beginners but I would recommend getting at some point in your magic life.
This trick is amazing, Ive already performed it on some friends after only practicing for a day or two. I found it simple to do for the effect it was worth. These days you find tricks that can be really hard to do, and yet lead to an effect that isnt worth all the effort. Trigger is nothing like that, its beginner to intermediate, although the result is phenomenal.
My only problem with this deck is that I found out how to perform Pixel by David Jade soon after. Pixel is similar to Trigger but easier. How ever with the ease of performing Pixel comes less of an effect compared to Trigger.
Anyway I highly recommend buying BOTH of these tricks. Thanks ALOT!
This is a very good and clever effect. It will take a little while to perfect but once youve got it cracked you will be amazing people on a daily basis. Buy it now.
Trigger is now in my top three favorite effects. It is a amazing trick, with such a simple concept. In my opinion, that is always the best kind of trick. If you want to make people rethink the laws of science, GET THIS TRICK!
Valdemar Gestur has created a lovely piece of magic with Trigger. The visuals of the rubber band penetrating the entire deck to trap a single card is just amazing to see in person. You can even grab a shuffled deck and do the same effect trapping the 4 aces, producing them in an impossible manner. Definitely a piece to play around with, and you'll have a lot of fun performing it. The only downside to the Streaming download is that the instruction is filmed from a straight on angle throughout. I would have loved an Over The Shoulder view to make the learning process a bit easier, but for 12 bucks I feel it was worth it. You'll have a lot of fun learning the effect and creating many new effects with the principle. Recommended.
