Hi, I'm relatively new to the forum and I came across a term I've never seen before: "finger flinger" or something very similar

I don't know if that is offensive or it is just something as normal as a slang term for sleight of hand but it woul be appreciated if someone could tell me wha tit means

Thanks,
-EL

A 'finger flinger' or 'finger flicker' is someone who does difficult or impressive sleight of hand or flourishes.

Check out the "Finger Flinging Silk Routine" video in The Wizards' Journal #26 for an illustration on how you, too, can learn to be a finger flinger.

Finger flingers have a tendency to perform knuckle busters...
