Hey!

I`m doing the perfect prod. normally with the help of the thumb, but I want to do it also with only the index finger! First to make it different and second to spin it (like McBride doing it on his "Zoom, Bounce and Fly" dvd).

But I have some problems! Doing it with the thumb is easy, because the thumb has a good grip, but the index does not! Because with the index the card is gripped with the nail or the side of the finger!

Second if I release pressure to make it easier, the cards fall out!

Any ideas?
Nice greets

The only two ideas I can give is to practice until it becomes ordinary and common to your fingers. It will become more excercise to those finger muscles. And go to a magic shop or magic club and get help from someone live. It is better support when someone is watching you live.

Go back and take a close look at the DVD and freeze the frame step-by-step. Some moves only need that tiny adjustment and the problem is fixed. It's really just a knack thing, so stick with it.

Best Wishes,

POOF!

There is a great teaching for this method in McBrides dvd "The Art of a Card manipulations"!
Chek it out!
