The Simple Switch is definitely a classic. Aside from that, who doesn't like the Pirouette Flourish (done properly, of course).

My personal favorite? The Corkscrew Closer by Kevin Ho. Sick cut.

Chalk up one more vote for the Instant Replay/Simple Switch. I've spent more time learning to do that flourish than I care to admit (well ok, 6 months to hit it consistently, but I've never stopped practicing it since). At the moment, I'm trying to achieve Paul's rapid fire speed with Instant Replay that you see him perform on the True Astonishment trailer (when he "instant replays" all 4 aces in between the fingers of his right hand, one after the other in rapid succession). But the Simple Switch is the first thing I do with a new deck in order to get a feel for the cards. So simple and beautiful in concept, yet so difficult to perfect. A classic indeed.

Would love to master the spring and catch single card effectively.

The Flying Single and Double Spinner are my favorites which I've used in my card manipulation routine on stage and for card revelations closeup.

Those and two other flourishes are taught in my book Kingdom of the Red and also taught and demoed on the companion DVD.

I enjoy the 190 helix cut.

I am surprised not that many people have said Sybil by Chris Kenner... Go Sybil!

I love the Midair Triple Cut, but then again, I am very biased!

T.G. Murphy's Deck Flip! It just feels sooo sweet when you get it down. Molecule2 cut/production by Dan and Dave uses the deck flip and is therefore my next favorite.
