Magicwiia, I came up with a packet trick that mimics whiplash with no gimmicks. In any event it requires a double lift from a pack of 4 cards, and I initially had a problem with this. I covered the get ready with patter : "At the end of this trick every one says I had more than 4 cards I don't and I count the cards (this does revers them). Then I spread the 4 cards saying "Only 4 cards" as I put the packet back together I get my break.

Even 2 years later when I can do a push of DL, for this one trick I use the same get ready.

Thank you for sharing. I've been trying to do the double lift without a break. An instantaneous DL. It's becoming clearer to me I better adjust my strategy and start using a break until I'm farther along the experience timeline.

That's the great thing about Hamman's technique, there is no break, no buckle, and no double push off.

When doing this small-packet DL technique, is it easier with a new or used deck?

The cards can be older or newer. Preferably not too sticky however. You'll want a deck in decent condition.

I found the following resource fun and really helpful: www.edhassmagic.com/eds-head. For this thread's topic, look for February 2014.

Bob - That is an amazing resource and find. Thank you! I just spent a little time with it and now understand the move. I have seen or read several other resources regarding the small-packet DL but none described the move in such vivid detail.

This is a treasure trove of sleight-of-hand moves which are described and illustrated. An Index is included which makes finding a move easy. The 4-card packet move is now bookmarked specifically and the main Table of Contents, generally.

Thanks again Bob, you're the best!!

Very glad to be of help, Magicwilia. People have helped me *a lot* during my two years on the Café. If I can help others occasionally, even at my "toddler" stage in magic, I'm happy.
