This is the type of hyper visual effect that makes you stop in your tracks. The type of magic that you just can’t help but smile when you see. “Bounce” is a super fun and innovative technique for making playing cards seemingly appear out of thin air with the bounce of a ball.
“Bounce” by Juan Luis Rubiales (the creative mind behind our bestseller "Debajo") allows you to add a super visual element to all your favorite card magic tricks. It is one of the most memorable ways to find a selected card, produce a four of a kind and so much more. While “Bounce” is designed to be visual, it can also be performed with face-down cards. That means you can also use it to secretly add on cards in the innocent action of bouncing the ball.
Here’s the craziest part…”Bounce” doesn’t use any fancy gimmicks or special cards. It’s all sleight of hand using a novel technique that can be done with any regular deck of playing cards. While it will take a little practice to get down smoothly, it’s way easier than you might think. Well within the range of any card magician. Multiple ideas are included with your download to get you started.
IMPORTANT: You can download and start learning “Bounce” today, but you will need to add your own ball. Juan explains the type of ball you should find in the instructional video. Or you can save yourself time and hassle by getting everything you need to start performing right away with our "Bounce Deluxe Add-On". Limited quantities available.

Customer reviews for Bounce
This is such a fun, visual way to find a card! It's unique and easy to do. I'm excited to work it into my set!
Looks etasy after practice. Haven't started yet, but I expect to need a LOT of practice!
Very clever and deceptive. The reveal is surprising.
Incredibly simple and visual method! So fun.
Lacrosse balls work perfectly for this incase people are wondering.
Excellent video, very well explained, very educational. The exposition of the material is well explained and detailed, leaving no doubt about the methodology to perform the trick, if it is a trick that requires practice but is easy to perform and highly recommended at the beginning of your show.
Very cool trick! I love the visuals and it's nice to have a different way to reveal a card. I was doing it almost immediately with a single card. This was probably my most unexpected purchase in magic and I'm so glad I went for it!
Sometimes someone else's creation or method suits one of those specific needs in your own routine. Clever and gets good responses...plus it is fun to practice. And it takes a bit of practice too, but well worth the effort.
this is so much fun!
If you perform with cards and jump by this tutorial, you’re crazy.
So many possibilities. I saw a video of someone doing it with dollar bills.
He also teaches the easiest, funnest and most visual “spectator cuts to the aces” I’ve ever seen.
So many possiblities.
What a fun, zany, brilliant trick!
Original... Simple for the spectators to follow. A ball make a card appears lightening speed between itself and the surface it hits. Brilliant! And the explainations are clears. What more? Four effects explained, that's enough to start your own ideas!
This is an amazing piece of visual magic and a wonderfully novel method for card reveals. Juan really does make it look easy. However, the tutorial is very poor. It's very rushed. The technique will obviously required practice but this could be expedited with a more detailed look at the subtleties of the sleights involved. It's not helped by the single static camera shot that's used when close-ups of finger positions etc would have been a real help. For what the tutorial is worth, you'd be better off with your own trial and error. A couple of disappointing releases from Vanishing Inc just recently, I hope the downward trend doesn't continue.
