Hello guys,

I'm into some sleight of hand for a couple of months now and I am trying to figure out now how Rich Ferguson shoots out the 4 of Hearts from the middle of the deck.

I would like to know the name of that method and maybe a video for an explanation.

I've found some card shooting methods but not a single one that was like that.

Here's the video:


Thanks in advance!

A very old move, I think it's in Tarbell, but one of my favourites.

Here's a thread you might find helpful:

   Sure looks like my The Lorayne Card Spin (why do you assume it's coming out of the middle of the deck?).

The link you supply Chi Han Yeo says it - you're not reading your own "suggestion".  The Lorayne Card Spin in the Reputation-Makers section of LORAYNE: THE CLASSIC COLLECTION, Vol. 2.

My bad, it looked more like the tarbell move to me, the grip is the same for both, and because of the angle I can't see if he's pushing the top card with the thumbnail or not.

I thought it looked like the Lorayne Card Spin, too,  and it's nice to have it confirmed. But Harry, isn't the idea to make it look as if the card is coming from the depths (centre) of the pack?

It seems to have worked here. More power to the move.

Incidentally, I did love the Pack switch.

Thanks for the post. I've hoped more for a video guide.

    Yes - he's holding the deck differently and using a finger other than the thumb to shoot out the card. My basic handling is much easier - I think.

I would caution you against learning any Sleight of Hand from YouTube Videos.
Trying to learn from those is serious mistake. In the same way, I'd caution you against
trying to learn Sleight of Hand solely from videos. Making those mistakes will cost you
in the long game.

Here the card also genuinely shoots from the middle. It's also pivoting off a different finger and has a different get ready. Agreed with Harry that his version is MUCH easier.

I'm a little surprised to see such informative responses to a "how did he do that?" question ... but I guess I'm just a curmudgeon!

I think it's because it was regarding a flourish and not a method.

Robin, same thoughts here.

I hope you all know that I am always willing to help in any kind but

he hasn´t introduced himself, just asking "How did he do that?" and giving himself the name "SexyEdea"...so...come on, not really, or?!

Regarding this situation, I like Stevens advice best!


Good thoughts (in memoriam of Bob Cassidy, almost one year without him!)

I have to admit that I am suspicious...

Thanks guys for the reply.

Though, what's the problem with my username?

The name originates from Final Fantasy VIII, one of my favorite video games.

And it features Edea Kramer, who is a witch. And she is sexy as hell, in my opinion.

And since witches fit into the magic concept. Hell why not? If the word "sexy" is still a no-no, then maybe I'm in the wrong place here.

Hi SexyEdea, Your username is fine, but it did raise a red flag. That's why I had to send you an email before approving your account. It was marked as "suspicious" by the program behind the forum. In the same way, it raised some eyebrows from some of the members of our community.

The fellas were simply expressing concern that you came here seeking methods without first taking the time to introduce yourself to our community.

You are welcome here. 

Rudy

I didn't even notice the name of the OP, nor the number (or lack of) posts.
I agree in principle with the thoughts and comments expressed here, but as noted it's really a flourish. But more than that, it's not something that anybody's going to buy and parade all over the shop.
It needs work.

I found the name of the move I was thinking of.  Same grip as the Lorayne Card Spin, but different mechanic.  It's Audley Walsh's Long Distance Spinner.  I think the move is actually used in the video not the Lorayne Card Spin, but who knows?
