Trigger is a stunning and surprising effect that looks like trick photography. The solution is impossible to reconstruct, yet seems fair and is easily achieved.
After a card is shuffled into the center, the deck is wrapped tightly with a rubber band, sealing the card within. At your command, the band passes through the entire deck with the exception of a single card, which shoots out from the center for a dynamic and visual effect.
Bonus Material, watch as Valademar Gestur demonstrates several of his favorite applications for this effect.
