I'm tired of not knowing how to do it.  I watched a youtube video back a few weeks ago when trying to learn it and I couldn't get it at all.   Anyone know of a superb free video?  Like on youtube?   I dont' get it at all.. I did what they say and it's a big mess.. all the cards clumped together.. real joke.

How about this?
It is brief and well explained.

That's a pretty good video and he gets a nice, wide fan. Canting the deck helps make the fan as large as possible. Use newer cards when starting to practice. After you get more comfortable you can get nice results out of most any deck, any condition. That's where the pressure fan excells over a thumb or drag fan.

Learning how to slowly and evenly release pressure is the knack you need to acquire. That comes through repetition.

I learned how to do it from the description in Greater Magic.

I was horrible at the pressure fan until I learned how to do a decent, flowing card spring. After that it sort of clicked for me.

I enjoy watching Xavior Spade and Asad from 52 Kards, so here's their tutorial. They do have a tendency to talk a lot though LOL, definitely less direct & to the point. The tutorials are all probably all pretty similar.

Getting better at the pressure fan, especially the last 20 or so cards.  I have a question.  Is the perfect pressure fan one showing all 52 cards? Or are the first 10 or so cards just clumped together?  I am finding the first 20 or so cards are all stuck together and getting decent separation on last 30.

I wish he showed us how he closed it up one handed. Just beautiful though. I can get that “quesadilla” look along the edge but I don’t quite see how they make the fan so big.

When practicing, keep turning the pack face-up, face-down and end-for-end. Should balance things out.

It's not you. [smile]

But never mind this particular flourish, all packs adjust to their owner's grip. One reason why a face up faro shuffle can cause problems.
