It was this effect by Lee Asher that influenced our own style of card magic and spawned a new generation of young magicians performing visual close-up magic.
With three phases beginning with the Silver Surfer - an animated handling to double lift that instantly brings life to the effect, followed by Slap Happy - an awesome way to bring a selected card to top. INSTANTLY! And finally, ending with an Ambitious Explosion , still one of our favorite four-ace productions.
to your magical repertoire. The difficulty rating doesn't lie, and the moves in this routine will take quite a bit of practice.
More than 20 minutes of detailed instructions of each phase with added tips. Plus you can put parts of this routine into your own routine --- I personally like slap happy as it's super easy and visual. Highly recommend this for magicians who can handle a deck of cards very well. It's rather difficult so do not get this if you are a beginner.
AND ITS GREAT FOR THE PRICE!
This routine is Uber-Magical. The first phase is very skillful looking with the card basically floating down the spread. The second phase is instant, yet head-slappingly simple- this is one of the things I love about card magic.
The final ace production comes from nowhere, It is almost like you just decided that you wanted the aces- and there they are! The ace production IS difficult, but it is more of a knack than a "move" similar to the duck change, or a pushoff double. There is a reason why Lee's magic is so well known the world over!
