Well that depends on the way you chose to produce the cards. Some performers believe it is best to produce a full deck fan on the catch, that is the way Neil Foster did his card productions.

Others elect to split the cards and only fan the cards being discarded. We are getting into personal choice of the performer now. Both are correct, but one will produce a smaller fan and one will produce a larger fan of cards.

It is said that a good large fan is made up from 8 playing cards.

So as less cards are used larger the fan will be? I prefer to make fans large but cant do it.

No, I think you miss understood my comments. There are 2 methods for card productions. One the whole deck is fanned and one only a few cards. The whole deck makes a large fan. The fewer cards make a smaller fan.

I am 13, I started manipulation when I was 11, now I can do split fans with almost any deck. I have the art of card manip too, and jeff says to use poker cards. I started with a sect of Norm Nielson bridge manipulation cards and worked up to the poker cards from there.
Good luck

It is good that you start to practice manipulation at young age. What would you be like after 10 years? You can be the next McBride!
