I agree, the three I use most is:

double lift
riffle force (or any force you feel comfortable with)
double or triple undercut (or sometimes hindu shuffle depending how brave I feel)

Never underestimate the stupidity of the general public

don't have a magic website but i have a cool car styling website at

Maybe the best approach is to choose the sleights that you need to use for the tricks you really want to do. Right now, I'm finding a hindu shuffle retaining bottom stock to be very useful for one trick I'm doing. I'm also using the Olram subtlety for Nick Trost's 8 Card Brainwave (from Michael Ammar's Easy to Master Card Miracles Vol 1.)

Many tricks require you to have a known card on the top or bottom, so a false shuffle or two is always useful.
