Just wondering what people thought the best manipulation DVD was? The best I have come across is Jeff McBride's set. Smile

I agree Jeff's are great and I think probably the most recommended in this manipulation forum.

The Jeff Sheridan DVD about cards is for me the best, especially the fan production. The way he does it is what I like.

WOW!
I bought all three of the Jeff McBride manipulation tapes today and so far just watched the first one.
It was among the best $60 investment I have made in magic to date.
I think I will be busy learning for the next year or more.
There is a ton of manipulation info on these tapes, I was very impressed.
Wish I could have got the dvd's though....
Best of luck to all

I have to agree with Jeff McBride and put Jeff Sheridan in a very close second. I think I should change my name to Jeff they really have it down. From a doves perspective I really like Tony Clark's DVDs.
Doves and Cards are still classic.

I just got all 3 dvd's today! they are stunning!
in vol 2 he shows how to prepare a bee brand deck for manipulation, has anyone tried this? does it work and can the whole deck be back palmed after or do I need manipulation cards? do I use poker sized card? what about hand lotions and potions and fanning powder? help!!! you probably guessed I'm a total beginner to manipulation! any help or tips would be most welcomed!
thanks, guys!

The prepartion of the Bee cards is good.

you can't backpalm a normal Bee deck. you can do it only with manipulation cards.

I use poker size because they are a bit wider and for me that's more en easy to palm the cards. bridge size is to small for my hands.

fanning powder is ok when you do make fans.

Handmade, I been doing manipulations for years. McBride's method for breaking in cards is correct, except that if you use a ruler with a brass edge it will tear off the corner of the card. Normally a pencil or a wooden dowel is used to pull the cards thru.

This treatment only makes the cards plyable nothing else. Wheather you can palm an entire deck is up to you and how much you learn to handle and control cards.

I wonder why you would get a DVD from an expert and then post a question if the material was true or not. I find that difficult to understand.

I suggest you put the effort of months of work into the material and you will find out for yourself. By the way, everything in the DVD is true and standard material for a manipulator.

Wmhegbli, I only posed the question because I believe the dvd's were shot 4 or 5 years ago and I wondered if you could buy pre-prepared cards! I am only a beginner! any more tips from you guys would be most welcomed!

Handmade,

Go to http://www.nnmagic.com. There are 2decks offered prepared and unprepared. These cards are for manipulation card production only.

This info on the McBride DVD and tapes is over 60 years old, not much new has been developed in this venue.
