Best and Easiest Way to Throw a Card





Introduction: Best and Easiest Way to Throw a Card

Tired of learning card throwing? I made it in 2 minutes :D

Someone can say that this is the same:

But i was trying to throw about half an hour.

With mine just 2 min.

Step 1: Needs

You will need:

-card (s)


Step 2: Grip

This is easy. Right-up card corner should be in space between middle and first finger. Low-right corner as in photo.

Step 3: How to Throw

Just move your wrist . Don't use your elbow. Look on photos

Step 4: Another Technique

The same as in step 2 and 3 but with another side . This is less accurate, but sometimes stronger.

Step 5: Video

You can see my throwing. :D

P.S I have been doing this since yesterday. This is my first instructable.

    I found another wrist technique

    Let's visit to learn how to throw a playing card so far, exactly and so strong

    I once heard of a guy who could throw a card over 2 houses.

    dude if you refine your throw and add other throws the jay grip etc. you can punish fruit and stick it in drywall which is kick ass but don't do at someone elses hows(except hated neighbors)

    Whats the Jay grip???

    the jay grip is a style of throwing made by an expert thrower, ricky jay. He can throw over 200 feet and his style is well known to throwers just google ricky jay i gtg for now

    200 feet?? dam i can only do like 50-75..LOL

    I threw my high school lunch card from the entrance of our gym to the weight room, which is like 40 yards. However, the card was plastic and easier to throw than a playing card. Also, I watched a video featuring a guy who holds the world record. Rick something Jr. threw a card 200-something feet. the video showed him throwing cards from his backyard into his front yard by curving them around his house.

    our school lunch card suks's only a piece of paper that's laminated

    watch'd on utube he threw 206 feet and 4 inches

    In the instructable, you appear to hold the card horizontally. In the video, you actually throw it vertically. Why the discrepancy? I've had some minor success throwing cards in a similar fashion horizontally, which is a little more difficult but the results are a lot harder. Throwing a card vertically isn't that hard, throwing it laterally is where it's at. I'll look for a video of the poker player who can cut a banana while throwing cards. Replace banana with jugular, and you're a regular card ninja.

    I watched a vid where a guy turned on a blender by throwing a card at the button.

    It is only another technique. If you can't throw vertically you can try horizontally. It is easiest but less accuracy. I hold it horizontally in only one step (4). Creating another insctructable with the same method of throwing, would be madness . :P

    any way i try i cant seem to throw the card does any body no throwing cards for sub-retards

    a good way to practice is with blank cds. I did this until i found what was best for me. after that, i started pwning ppl in card fights. you should try having a shirtless card fight with the plastic credit-card type. it makes it hurt when you get hit, so it's more fun.

    Yea dude, try to go through a few steps. THe first key is the spin. THE SPIN IS VITAL. If you hold the card basically like in this instructable except horizontally, just practice extending your fingers and releasing the card until the card spins real nice, then as the wrist to the equation. When you get pretty decent throws out of the wrist and fingers, try adding more umph and a wind up. SO long as you get the card to spin, throing is easy and the more power u put behind it the further it will go.

    Well, that's kind of the difficulty of throwing it horizontally. Anyone can throw a card vertically all day, but you won't get the effect of a good horizontal throw. The dynamics are entirely different. When you throw it horizontally, it actually is a skill, because you need spin. If you can propel the card vertically, with little spin, it'll go as fast as you can wing it.

    this'll sound lame but your way i threw it at a wall and bent the tip of the card your way is much easier thnx for the instructable keep up the good work

    hey, go on youtube and look up the cloak, and do the aimated 1 where theres a floating head! anyway i love that way, though i can never get anough power to stick into foam. any tips?
