Why would one want to cull the 4 cards as quickly as possible?

I use Marlos Prayer Cull just because it can be done in a very slow and relaxed manner with ZERO finger movement. You need to have a motivation to spread through the deck so I don't think speed matters. Just try to make it look like you are spreading through the cards.

How about this --- do whichever cull you're using EITHER slowly or quickly - according to how it "fits" the effect/routine you're going to do.

Of course, generally speaking - Why would one want to cull the 4 cards as quickly as possible? To avoid any suspicion (that you're doing something you shouldn't be doing). How obvious.

So basically, to each his own. A "slow and relaxed manner" I'm sure works for you - it sure as heck doesn't work for me. So, I do Cull Down as quickly as possible. But it can be done slowly if the magician WANTS to do it slowly.

I like the Marlo Cull that Bannon teaches in his sheep to the slaughter routine. It’s very similar to cull down. I think sheep to the slaughter is one of the best most impressive poker dems you can do with a shuffled deck of cards. Great Cull too. Thanks Mr Marlo and Mr Bannon ü

From what I gathered Kimlat Kostya's Roadrunner Cull is the fastest cull out there, be it 4 cards or half of the deck. That being said, this particular cull do not addressed culling on a table. Does anyone know any sources that go over culling on a table? I am looking to use the spread cull during a gambling demonstrations.

Same as I've used for years/decades --- I'm handed a deck, as I ask "Is this a full deck?" I spread through the face-up deck as if checking that. And when done and deck is turned face down (and as I say "Yes, it is") the four aces are on top. Magicfish touched on it above.

Somewhere I taught to use Cull Down so that in one spread through of the deck you have the aces set to fall to you in a 3-hand poker deal. Perhaps someone can find that for me.

Can someone give me a tip on this? I can't do the move.

One description says while spreading left to right, use the LH index finger to downjog the target cards; another says use the RH pinky.

Either way, when I downjog I break rhythm and the surrounding cards become misaligned to the point where I can't extract the downjogged four target cards.

Aside from sheer practice (a given), any suggestions? Thank you.

Whenever I find myself gripping anything too tightly I just ask myself "How would Guy Hollingworth hold this?"

For the traditional under spread cull I have video on Roadrunner, David's and Cullology. But there the downjogging motion of the right hand does not manifest as it seems to here.
