I would say it's the one handed spring.

Cobra cuts and the King Cobra is relatively easier and more practical to perform for most people. I already started doing the King Cobra.

Not many can do a one handed spring yet though, except Jerry, De`vo and maybe a few others?

"I already started doing the King Cobra. Clarence"

I'd have to say that the King Cobra is one of the hardest flourishes to perform. Being able to do something is not the same as being able to perform it.

One handed spring, and the King Cobra cut. Exactly,lol Performing the King is not easy. I had better luck with the one handed spring.lol Really no one should be performing the King Cobra without the rights anyway, and besides, it's best to wait for the DVD or take the chance of learning it wrong like 99% of all people to include Clarence did with the original Cobra.

True, I think I elaborated myself wrongly. I will definitely buy the Cobra DVD. So it's only a matter of time I will have the performance rights and the correct way/technique of doing it.

However, I already started practicing and doing the wrong movements for the advanced cobras at home only. I believe it's still better to start on something earlier even though I may be doing it wrongly. At least now I'm confident with the balance and flips and have built up more individual finger strength and independence.

My style - I use a lot of trial and error during my training sessions. This is one of the reasons why I also seem to be ahead of people. I have a lot of original material bought by my parents. But a lot of the flourishes that I do, I use a combination of the original and my slight modified way of doing it. This can be seen in most videos that I make or put out. I don't imitate, I do it the way it's meant for my fingers/hands to look.

De'vo's cradle to grave. Not really a single flourish, more like a flourish routine.

There is no hardest move in card manipulation. You could make any move ridiculously difficult by adding in elementals and other requirements or cirucmstances. Take a basic charlier cut for example and try doing ten of those in one hand while balancing upside down in a handstand with the other...get the idea?

Great post Zambooni! It's kinda funny and true. Try holding 10 decks on your hands while balancing upside down in a handstand too!

Hahaha... =D

One handed spring is harder than that closer.

Cobra cut gets my vote as I am yet unfamiliar with the one-handed spring (that'll change soon..).

Small hands shouldn't matter.

Sorry to say but charlier with nondom hand hard? Try to learn everything you do first with your nondom hand it will help a lot.

"Sorry to say but charlier with nondom hand hard ?"

Yeah, it can be hard : try to write a letter with your left hand (if you are right-handed of course) and let's see how "easy" it is Smile


"Try to learn everything you do first with your nondom hand"

A better advice would be to start learning with BOTH hands at the same time.
