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
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 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!
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.
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.
This is a great to-the-point video, not a lot of fluff. The music could stand to be lower during the explanation phase.
As the trailer reveals, this is a very nice illusion. Clearly, the key elements of the downloadable video would be the instruction on how to perform the move, and some examples of ways to implement it. Both of those elements are present in the short video, but the instruction in particular is less detailed than I have observed in other videos available from Vanishing Inc. Magic. As for the implementation, three clever ideas are presented very briefly.
This is definitely worth the very reasonable price, so I rate it 4 stars of 5.
There is endless possibilities with this technique. The effect is so visual that it seems like there is a gimmick or at a certain points looks like CGI! But it's all about sleight of hand! Also, it could be impromptu. The video is very well explains and Juan will give you tips and effect to be able execute the technique.
So great! It's so visual and I can't believe how easy it is.
I wasn't sure about this when I saw the trailer. I've been burned in the past (never by VI) by purchasing routines that can't be done unless one has some special abilities or gifts (e.g., very large hands). I took a chance on this and I really like it for a variety of reasons:
First, it is pretty clearly explained (though quickly, which is fine, just rewatch it). This is not something that only the inventor and his cousin Poky, who has hands the size of Bigfoot, could do. It is a pretty easy move. If you can find reverse in a Fiat, you can do this move, but you will need to practice.
Second, I often work as a juggler/magician for walk-around gigs. This is the perfect transition from juggling to magic and it really uses both skills (though you don't have to juggle to do this trick).
Third, not much card magic is visual. Rarely in a card trick does the spectator "see the magic happen." This move allows for some things that are so visual that they almost scream "gimmick" but there is none. A visual card-trick is rare and valuable.All in all you really can't go wrong here. It's different, visual, and requires nothing more than a good ball and a deck. Highly recommended.
BTW, if you don't have a solid silicone bounce juggling ball. Get it here and now from VI. I paid 25 or 30 bucks for the ones I use and I bought them in the mid 1980s. So for 30 bucks and some practice you have an impromptu miracle.
I like all the magic card trick’s the magician performed the the bounce ball… can’t wait to learn each trick!
This is a very very VISUAL production of several cards.
My mind is playing with this!
Signed card (s). Multiple selection routine where you find several cards and for the last four… use the ball. Or use the ball for the final revelation AFTER FAILING to find the last card!
Instruction is good, although I wools have liked s closer reveal of producing the card which is against the palm.
I think it's a very successful effect.
