I'm obviously new to cardistry and i've decided to get into it a great deal. In between my two jobs i practice alot. I just boght the trilogy + andthensome, XB1+2, Cradle, and cobra and this is what i plan to work on for months. Once i have these down, i plan to buy EOPCF by the flourishman, but i ave plenty of material for now. Right now i have a powdered tally ho blue fanback deck and i'm trying to perfect my pressure fan. My questions that XB are not answering: 1) What do i do at the end of the motion? 2) Where do i apply pressure with my index and middle fingers on the top of the deck? In other words, am i pushing down or away? Because i'm a beginner, both feel natural and are not getting the result i want. 3) How do i bevel the cards? Are my index fingers on my left hand pushing up? (My left hand is the stable hand, right hand doing the fan) 4) Do i squeeze with my left hand? What is the right pressure ratio between squeezing and pushing with my right versus my left? See i have alot of questions, and i feel that these dvds can go into more detail by saying how much pressure to apply, at what angles to apply it and EXACTLY whats going on. Alot of the time its the same thing over and over, which is repetitive. They are great DVDs, but thats my own personal critique. No matter what i do for my pressure fans, i end with lots of cards at the end of the motion. The fan is uneven, it looks terrible, and i'm reaching my boiling point. Of course i am going to have patience, i just need a little bit of a better explanation that just "Well if you have good deck condition and starting grip, you'll do great." Because i have both, and the only thing that looks semi good is my thumb fan, which still loos like crap IMO.
