So, I was wondering how many of you do the first phase of Pandora exactly like it was taught on The Trilogy? I specifically aim at the part between peeling of the card from the centre packet with a thumb (after the tornado cut) and ending in z-grip. A lot of guys skip that part that kind of looks like Madonna (those familiar with the cut will probably know what I mean), myself included. It breaks the rhythm of my Pandora and I feel like it doesn't really add up in there, and since Pandora is hard enough to learn even without it (and I really just started practicing), I gave up on it. Now, I have 2 questions: 1)Am I just taking the "easy" route or do you understand my concerns? 2)How do you do your Pandora? Exactly like on The Trilogy or more like Jordan Lapping?
