The Hot Shot Cut is one of my favorite tricks to do with a deck of cards. It can be used as a stand alone card trick, or be mixed into an ace production routine. It is an extremely impressive move that allows you to shoot a card out of the deck and catch it in your opposite hand. This move was popularized by David Blaine is his “Street Magic” special, but is credited to Daryl.

My card keeps shooting towards me, not from me :/
I kinda keep bending the card..I apply tension but it just bends and falls down:/
This is one of my favorite sleights. It’s good for both four-ace productions or something as simple as finding a card. Plus, if you don’t want a card shot, it’s a good one-handed cut. The concept of shooting the card with your ring finger can also be applied with a lot of other sleights such as the revolution cut and triple cut. And it looks nice. Overall, thank Asad!
I am training this with normal cards not specific ‘magic cards’.
Could this be a reason that the cards just bend and wont shoot? Grtz
If your cards are extremely flimsy, then it might be difficult to create enough tension in the card for it to shoot out.
Hi, I use standard cards, too. I can’t let it fly by just creating tension. So I use my index finger to shoot it out while creating tension with the middle finger for the spin-effect. Maybe it’ll help you as well.
all the cards from the top deck keeps falling apart and splitting upwards,what should i do?
