Inspired by the work of Guy Hollingworth and James Chandler, Shin Lim has come up with ShinSplint, a beautiful, clean inversion effect that left us like deer in the headlights when we first saw it.
Based on nothing but your skill, your audience will see four cards turn themselves over in your hand, one by one. Not really your hand, actually — during the “watch this” moments, the magic happens in your fingertips.
No fancy movement, no finger-flexing or flourishing here. All they see is you tilting a fan delicately. And despite how slowly you move, the end result hits them in the eyes. It’s that good. Prepare to hear a lot of people say, “What the…”
Shin, who is a multiple award winner from the IBM, FISM and WMS. has developed a twist on the inversion plot that people will demand to see again. It’s impromptu — there’s no gimmicks or gaffs here, only your skills. It’s flexible enough to work into your presentations — use it to lead into a Travelers or Collectors routine. Or just do this, and leave them in a state of awe.
