The first time we saw Tobias Dostal perform this in New York we asked him to show us again. And then again. And then we took him with us to show everyone else we could find. This is a masterpiece of card handling, misdirection and finesse - and it’s truly a joy to behold in person.

‘FourFly’ - or as Tobias calls it, ‘Die Kartenwanderung,’ takes clear direction from Chris Kenner’s ‘ThreeFly’, but with a little extra… everything. Cards instead of coins, four ‘teleportations’ rather than three, and super clean, super visual moves that flow with the fluid grace of a classical ballet.

The individual moves in this effect will have you firmly planted in front of a mirror for hours - marvelling at how beautiful - and fooling - the vanishes and productions can be. If read in a book or simply demonstrated, this effect would be daily relegated to the domain of the move-monkey, however with Tobias’s deliberate and easy-to-follow teaching, this is an effect that even a beginner can be performing in under an hour.

This four-phase routine cannot be judged on the basis of the trailer alone, as the camera presents the focus in a small frame, rather than allowing the eye to be misdirected and stunned by each transportation.

Do yourself a favor and add it to your repertoire today. You’ll be glad you did.

  1. Summary

    Bad explanation! Tobias Dostal has a unique way of teaching by not explaining the moves together and by not explaining the trick well. I had hard time following the video and learning the routine.
  2. Summary

    Hard but looks beautiful when perfected the level of skill this takes is why i gave it only 4 stars. -Spade
  3. Summary

    This is a fantastic piece released by Tobias! Requires determination and practice but the end result is worth it!
  4. Summary

    This is something of a magic purists dream. You will require: cards + skills.
    It's angle sensitive, deceptive, beautiful and requires hours of practice. Dai Vernon would love it. (Which is recommendation enough.)
  5. Summary

    This is a beautiful little routine for the price. You will definitely get your money out of this project learning a routine that you can learn relatively quickly and perform without the need for patter or interaction with a spectator. For the magician that performs on the street or even in a parlour type environment then this would be a great little routine to learn as an opener.

    Get it and you won't regret it regardless of skill level!
  6. Summary

    Its such a beautiful routine. After you get the moves down it just comes to practice. Takes about a week to look nice and clean.
  7. Summary

    Mindblowing effect! Fourfly is a great sleight of hand effect that a amature to a professional performer can perform with some practice of course. This is quick and to the point effect where appearance and vanishes of cards from hand to hand looks so beautiful. It is very flashy and fun to watch. I would is recommend this product to anyone that enjoys performing with cards.
  8. Summary

    Fourfly... I cannot really express how much reaction I got from spectators from this trick. Some of the moves take a bit of practice but once you can flow with all of them it forms a great routine. This trick takes practice but in the end is well worth the practice. When you preform you will not be disappointed.
  9. Summary

    I brought this, and let me tell you, im not disappointed. Some moves are kinda hard to master, but definetley not impossible. With practice, this effect looks great. Tobias is a great instructor and i look forward to seeing more from him on ellusionist. This is awesome for the price and i definetely recommend it. :)
  10. Summary

    Even if you do not wind up using this in your repertoire, it is worth taking a shot at. You will be able to borrow one or two moves in it and add them to something you already do or pick up in the future. It is a stretch to call this effect "intermediate"; it is "difficult" but, for most people, doable with time---just like cutting to the 26th card. IMHO this is not a close up effect because of the angles unless it is a formal close up show. But, done on stage, I believe it can be a thing of beauty.
