Pop Fly Review

Official Review

Pop Fly is a 33 minute video that teaches a method in which a selected card literally flies out of any deck of cards as it is being riffled in one hand. It is impressive to your spectators and gratifying to perform. Christian Bizau is the young creator of this and a few other new worthwhile sleights and effects. There are no gimmicks and this a magician controlled sleight.

The quick intro clip to the effect demonstrates the effect from the spectator’s point of view and Bizau’s instruction switches from both the performer’s point of view and the spectator’s point of view. He clearly shows how to hold the cards and position your fingers to make the cards “pop” out of the deck. There are no graphic overlays or freeze frames to emphasize certain aspect of the move, but the instruction is straight forward and understandable. The basic method may take some practice, but it is worth the time investment to master.

Bizau suggest some patter as an explanation as to why the card flies out of the deck which also involves the spectator’s participation, which makes the method seem more like a trick in of itself. He also suggest some variation on the pop, including a double pop where two different cards fly out of the deck, one at a time. One of the more impressive variations of the method is shooting the selected card into the spectator’s open and cupped hands. Some of the variations of the basic effect can be a bit tricky and will require a bit more card handling skills.

The video quality is nothing out of the ordinary and the audio sounds a bit hollow, but it is not that noticeable. The ad copy is accurate and the claim that Pop Fly is a “ridiculously cool-looking sleight” is something I wholeheartedly agree with. This effect looks much better in person than it does on the promotional video.
