On one of the trilogy DVD's by Dan and Dave that contains the Flourishes 101 section. The Revolution Cut, is almost impossible for me with short fingers. My thumb is only 1 and 1/4 an inch long and my index and middle finger is only 2 & 1/2 inches long and my ring finger is 1 and 3/4 inches long. My pinky is 1 and 1/4 inches long. It seems to me like I can't do certain flourishes... Especially ones with deck handling in them as my fingers cant hold a portion of the deck without it falling off. My practice deck is 6months old and is pretty crappy. is that a problem too? I just dont want to open new decks and find out that I dont need to open it yet.
