Not only is the effect strong and direct, but having the cards spring up into the air and shower to the ground as the effect happens psychologically signifies the finale and wraps the entire performance.

It's a beautiful plot used by many of the greatest in our business. The only problem is, who uses a sword anymore?

Here at the SansMinds Creative Lab in collaboration with Guillermo Dech and Yuji Enei, we have taken all the elements of Swordlace, and reinvented it to our taste. The result? Check this out.

Unexpected and different. Review by GlassesPlease

I would certainly perform this as a magical accident! If it were possible to pretend to drop the pack by mistake while fumbling around trying to locate the chosen card and let the spectators spot the card on shoe lace.

Not Bad Review by kirkby700

Probably best suited, for an indoor shopping centre etc.. rather than, a mucky or wet pavement setting.
A great, twist on an old theme

Good looking, but not for me Review by Giles
Difficulty Level (1 Easy - 5 Hard) 40%
Satisfaction 60%
Great to see a trick revamped and revised to still be useful - not sure however where it would fir in a routine with a Deck to pick up at the end and for me is not strong enough as a finale. Also wet pavements would be a real downer! Great as a one off or party, but not for me .

Limited performance Review by Magic Al
Difficulty Level (1 Easy - 5 Hard) 40%
Satisfaction 20%
Looks good BUT where & when? 1] Need shoelaces & shoes appropriate to effect 2] Who picks up all cards after effect? 3] How many decks would you need to do this in performance as working magicians do their act more than once at a booking.
Very limiting - such a shame

It a bit like ring on lace but very affective with the lace going through the card.

Fantastic Visual but Limited To Routine End Use Review by Chubby Holt
Difficulty Level (1 Easy - 5 Hard) 60%
Satisfaction 100%
No, not everyone's style of delivery or shoes will make this a must have for their battle chest, but for those that it suits, it's a wonderful effect. The issue of dumping your deck on the floor can make it for special use only, but this is a great way to finish off those gigs. The fact that you'll need to collect the deck back from the floor takes some of the impact away, and does mean that you'll find this difficult to implement at any point in your routine other than as a closer. Apart from that it's a neat professional trick that produces a lot of wow factor.

Nice idea Review by Edwin

Really different take on a very outdated effect love this idea makes a lot of sense. However it is not quite the effect of a card on sword u are not stabbing a card so much as letting it land. However I do like the re vamp of this classic effect

Not very useful Review by Andy
Difficulty Level (1 Easy - 5 Hard) 60%
Satisfaction 20%
From a presentation standpoint:For tablehopping not very useful because you`ve got to pick up cards after...dead moment.
For the kind of street that I did (& night club/dance floor shows that I still do) everything has to be seen above the waist-better above the chest otherwise people in the 3rd row can`t see it...

poor effect Review by rob453
Difficulty Level (1 Easy - 5 Hard) 100%
Satisfaction 20%
It looks like it would be ok for street performers but then again it is kind of stupid to interrupt your act because you have to pick up all of your now dirty cards. Also I agree with a previous reviewer that the card should be inside the knot, not just dangling at the end. No stars for anything.

only in very specific situations Review by MagicPaul
Difficulty Level (1 Easy - 5 Hard) 60%
Satisfaction 40%
I would see this as a great closer on the street or, MAYBE, in a setting where the cards can be swept away. Picking them up and using them again - absolutely the WRONG thing to do! Giving the signed (?) card to the spectators is absolutely correct, but there may be too many negatives for the use in most cases. I do agree with others who are probably more skilled and experienced than I (not that difficult to be such!) - can the method be used with a neater and far FAR less anticlimactic result other than "picking up the cards?" Thanks. Paul C

Another impractical one from Sansminds!! Review by Chalvan Korasta
Difficulty Level (1 Easy - 5 Hard) 60%
Satisfaction 40%
For Youtube, showreel, video clip, maybe okay, but who wants to go down on their knees to gather up cards in front of your audience. You would look like an amateur. It's not even possible at tables. It's nothing like a card sword trick. Springing cards into the air onto the floor just isn't on for real world work. It's best as a one off performance trick if at all. Many don't wear lace up shoes, and def not trainers for gigs!

Seems like a waste of cards Review by S J Rasu
Difficulty Level (1 Easy - 5 Hard) 40%
Satisfaction 60%
The effect looks clean, at least based on the jump cuts in the trailer. However, who wants to throw your cards all over the ground like that. It just seems wasteful and there are much better reveales. I do love the concept of sword through a card but on a different item but I don't see me performing this at all.

the cards flying from his hands kept my attention - they then zoomed in to the signed card on the shoelace which momentarily raised my curiosity as to how to do that. Then all I could think of was picking up all those cards and my interest went.

Somehow the lace passing through a hole punched near the end of the card looks wrong - it should be in the centre. And I don't wear that type of footwear / lace.

Wonderful effect if you manage your audience well. The question is when do you play 52 card pickup? Do you stand there with all of your cards on the ground while you work your tip or, do you pick up the cards while your tip walks away?

Another made for tv trick Review by Saia Marz
Difficulty Level (1 Easy - 5 Hard) 60%
Satisfaction 60%
Takes a lot of audience management to pull this off . There are billions of ways to reveal a select card all are only based off of 3 to 7 basic principles . if your a magician filming a street magic tv show then by all means this is an excellent trick but once those cards hit the street it’s over your £3 cards are ruined keep that in mind I also do not like how it’s represented . why are his shoes so dirty? could he not buy a clean pair I guess they assume street magicians are unclean . I would say it’s not a trick I would buy , but if your like me you’ll like that . I give it a shot and if you are a street magician have fun with it add it to your you tube videos could be fun but definitely not the right trick for me .

It looks in my mind that it could be a winner because it is so impossible. Definitely tailored towards walkabout and is most certainly eye candy so would i buy it.

What sort of working environment would be suitable for scattering a deck of cards on the floor/ground?
Five second reset after picking up all the cards.
