    New Trainer Deck Concept?

    Hey guys, If you wouldn't mind, take a few minutes and check my website for trainer decks out. Or rather, Treynor decks. I've been practicing and performing with these packets for almost a year and have in the last month realized I could and should be selling them. The site is so new and the...

    What card finish/type is best for cardistry?

    So, I've been doing cardistry for a few months now and I've been through a couple decks so far, my favourites being Antler and Tally-Ho; both have a nice stock and are quite comfortable to handle, and apart from the Tally-Ho's rough edges in the first day or so, they are both quite reliable sets...

    Cardistry Idea Sources

    I have been doing magic and cardistry for a while now, and i've always found it hard to come up with a new, original move. I was wondering if there are any books, DVD's or anything else that can help people create new flourishes (instead of teaching them.) Thanks!

    Pushing cards with a single finger

    Hi good people of Theory11 ! I have stumbled across an issue lately regarding some flourishes; it may seem like a trifle, but it's stopping me completely. I am quite new to cardistry, although I can do with my eyes closed some basic moves like the Sybil Cut. The thing is, in some flourishes...

    Has it been done?

    Whilst playing with cards, I stumbled upon a sequence of cuts that make a flourish I really like. I want to call it my own since I've never seen it done, but I wish to know if it's been done so I'm not copying someone else or stealing it. How do I know if it's been done?

    Red or Blue?

    Quick question. After watching the Virts' "Versus" for the 105th time, I began wondering, they use blue backed cards for their standard examples. I.e. the tally ho and bike decks they use are blue. When doing cardistry, which color or bikes or tallys do you think looks better? Or does it not...

    Cardistry: Where to Begin

    Everyone begins somewhere. Some in the middle of the park watches a man in a blazer flying cards everywhere in a cool crisp movement with smooth moment and you standing in awe saying, "Man, I want to learn that!" Or you can be the guy sitting in his room with a computer watching youtube videos...

    Close-Up Pad substitutes?

    Hello! I can't really afford a close-up mat right now, but I need a soft surface to practice magic, ribbon spreads, tabled flourishes, etc... Any ideas on a cheap alternative? And no, I don't have a carpet in my house.

    Riffle fan tips?

    Hello! I recently learned the riffle fan, and I'm hoping some of you could spare some tips? When I perform the riffle fan, it only fans halfway... Not a full circle fan unlike most others. Can anyone help me get it to a full circle? Thanks in advance!

    Prerequisites for Solo by Michael James?

    So I'm planning to buy Solo by Michael James and I want to know what flourishes I need to know before I buy? I'm in the intermediate level in cardistry, if that helps. If anyone can kindly make a list of stuff I need to learn first, it would be much appreciated. Thanks in advance!

    Is it normal to get callus from cardistry?

    So I finally learned the spring! :D I was practicing the spring for like an hour now, and my thumb is REALLY painful and I'm getting callus on the side of my thumb. Is that normal?, because I'm worrying right now.

    Help me find this move!

    The following is a video of Greg Wilson during the explanation video for "Revolution". It's only 7 seconds long and nothing based on his effect is revealed, but he does a move and says how he has no idea what it's called, which sucks because I want to learn it. Any help is hugely appreciated!
