I'd really like to work on perfecting my one-handed DL. I have written descriptions but I still feel like I'm missing some subtlety. Can anyone direct me to a good video resource on this?

Rene Lavand is the master (by necessity?). He can also do a one-handed faro!

Check out Daryl's Encyclopedia of Card Sleights DVD (Vol.5) for 'Daryl's One Handed Double Lift (variation on D'Amico Lift)'.

Also check out Lee Asher's Diving board double. That is the one that I use most of the time.

Thanks Spydur. This is exactly what I was looking for. I'm very pleased with Asher's technique. Now I need to practice.

This past monday I just came out with a one handed ML, I do not read that many books, so I do not know if someone else is doing it out there, it is similar to the one from Rene Lavand, but the pinky is not involved and I don't thumb count as he does, I wish I could put it on the web for you guys to check it out, but I do not know that much about PC; I am really very excited about this one handed ML,because it has sooo many applications and I find a new one like every 5 minutes,LOL.

Hey Gfcal, I know that does not help you, but I just wanted to mention it since I saw the related post.

Peace out there.

Mano.

P.S.Hi Spydur, Lee's DL is not really a one handed DL,because he uses his left hand to turn and show the card.

"P.S.Hi Spydur, Lee's DL is not really a one handed DL,because he uses his left hand to turn and show the card."

Oh my goodness...I suppose that you are correct. I imagine that if you were to use Lee's DL and then do a sort of Flippant move it could be done with one hand. Also if you were to do the acrobatic version of the Diving Board Double it would constitute a one-handed DL.

I guess that my thinking was in the right direction though.

"Thanks Spydur. This is exactly what I was looking for."

I cant wait for a "NO HANDS" DL.

Have a great night everyone!!!

Good morning Corey,

LOL,
I cant wait for a "NO HANDS" DL.
That would be the ideal one.

I agree with the acrobatic version.

be well and have a good day.
