  1. Hey guys and girls.

    I have been pretty lazy lately and haven't hit you guys up with a video for you to comment on.

    Well now we are all home from school, college, uni or work for the holidays, you guys are gonna be looking for new magic to practice

    So here it is : http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8wYDDH3--lM

    About a year ago I was practicing Kevin Ho's flourish : Raccoon, and the card on my thumb went into the middle of the deck. So I reversed the move and this is what I came up with.

    It's a :
    Colour Change
    Control to top ...

    ... to keep you all busy, should you find it interesting at all.

    Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays and have a great new year..... and leave your thoughts, comments, criticisms on this thread page.

    P.s. Subscribe to my friend Florian Machefer's youtube channel, as he was also an inspiration for this.


    Night Everyone, and any problems add me on Facebook : Geraint Clarke .... or email me : geraint2k2@hotmail.com

  2. I have been looking for a control like this, thank you so much.
  3. nice move. Really practical. But there's a little problem when I make the spin, you can hear a little "snap". Anyway to prevent it or minimize it???
  4. It means your applying way too much pressure on the selected card. You have alot of downward pressure, so when it's released it springs up and catches the deck and makes the noise.

    A little less downward pressure = alot less noise :D

    Hope that helped mate

  5. thanx. that did help. And I clicked the other link. Maverick is sick!!!
  6. Nothing but the best from us dude :D Lloyd Barnes is a clever guy.
  7. I don't like the looks of it as a control, but that's a sick color change. Nice job.:)
  8. the good thing is though,after you push the card in,the spectators should be looking at you and not the deck anymore. So that little spin of the deck shouldnt be a problem.
  9. True... (dang word count)
  10. fo sho.
    And even if they did spot the little twirl,it doesnt register as fishy. More of like a square up or casual tiny flourish.
    Other than the countless other jerky,highly suspect after moves ive seen in other card controls.
  11. Yea, agreed...
  12. Jerry's is better, but I don't like the push forward..... Thanks for the video response dude :)
  13. good job thinking of this, and the more i think about it, the more different these moves really are. i just wanted to post the andrus vid since the thinking is almost identical, just executed differently. What do you mean by "push forward"?
  14. In the interest of exposure, I dont want to say it in too much detail.

    But squaring the card flush with the pack contains a bit of a push forward with the panoramic shift.

    Glad you like the move.

    P.s. You perform it very well.
  15. Video is privat...
