What card flourish you like the best?
Message: Posted by: trashmanf (Oct 3, 2008 05:45PM)
Giant fan or spring. Probably giant fan.

I love the one hand shuffle, because I can actually do it! Took me a long time to master that one for some reason.
Message: Posted by: Kjellstrom (Oct 9, 2008 01:45PM)
Two foot shuffle, extremely difficult.

For me nothing tops Paul Harris "Simple Switch"

Does he also refer to it as the Giggle Switch?

I do the one hand cuts the most.

I enjoy the giant fan and the FanKut (or Fanflip). More so the FanKut.

I love the pressure fan (though I still can't do it, nothing I've read explains what to do with my thumbs), Giant fan is a good one as well ^.-d

The only flourish I seem to do all the time is the pual la paul spread and a couple of flashy cuts like one handed spin cut. not a big phene of flourish but they do look super cool in a control amount.

One-handed shuffle.

One hand shuffle.
Message: Posted by: RamonT (Jan 31, 2009 11:59PM)
One hand shuffle and revolution cut.

I do those all the time.

The Flying Single and Double Spinner are my favorites which I've used in my card manipulation routine on stage and for card revelations closeup.

Those and two other flourishes are taught in my book Kingdom of the Red and also taught and demoed on the companion DVD.

Helicopter cut or Cobra cut
Message: Posted by: tedrogers (Mar 14, 2009 05:31PM)
The Simple Switch is definitely a classic. Aside from that, who doesn't like the Pirouette Flourish (done properly, of course).

My personal favorite? The Corkscrew Closer by Kevin Ho. Sick cut.

Another vote for the Giant fan.
Message: Posted by: JayPea (Mar 25, 2009 05:12AM)
Chalk up one more vote for the Instant Replay/Simple Switch. I've spent more time learning to do that flourish than I care to admit (well ok, 6 months to hit it consistently, but I've never stopped practicing it since). At the moment, I'm trying to achieve Paul's rapid fire speed with Instant Replay that you see him perform on the True Astonishment trailer (when he "instant replays" all 4 aces in between the fingers of his right hand, one after the other in rapid succession). But the Simple Switch is the first thing I do with a new deck in order to get a feel for the cards. So simple and beautiful in concept, yet so difficult to perfect. A classic indeed.

Spilt fans, one-handed shuffle, various one-hand cuts, cascade, springing cards hand to hand.

I am surprised not that many people have said Sybil by Chris Kenner... Go Sybil!

Pandora is the most bueatiful flourish I've ever seen, I'm still not perfect at it, been 4 months.

I love the Midair Triple Cut, but then again, I am very biased!

T.G. Murphy's Deck Flip! It just feels sooo sweet when you get it down. Molecule2 cut/production by Dan and Dave uses the deck flip and is therefore my next favorite.
