Hey guys, I just recently have been thinking, (ok..ok.. I'll quit because my head is smokin') Smile that I haven't seen a whole lot in the Jumbo genre. Do you all have any ideas for false shuffles, cuts, and flourishes for jumbos?

Let's see who's the most creative.

The following flourishes can all be done with jumbos:

Arm spreads, one handed fans, giant double tier fan, rolo-deck, springing, (sideways) waterfall, (sideways) fan change. (wave fan in front of card and it changes) I'm sure other flourishes will work too.

As far as sleights: Instantaneous double lift and snap double, top change, many false cuts, push thru shuffle, elmsley counts, convincing controls, and many other sleights. Some need to be worked sideways, others need to be "modified" slightly. For example using some clever thinking can allow jumbos to be palmed.

Right Joe, I understand that just about anything that can be imagined can be done. I am one, whom, whenever I hear the word never, sets out to prove it wrong.

I'll be a bit more specific, I am looking for a good source, ideas, or other that can be lended to a story deck (such as Sam the Bellhop) using jumbos. So the false cuts and shuffles need to take place on the table if possible.

I checked with my local magic retailer, and he thought I was crazy and told me it would "never" happen. Thus my topic was started. I know that someone here has good source, whether it is a book, or a video, or just plain an idea. I have a few of my own, and at a later time I will share them.

Thanks for your reply Joe.
