Try to find another source for the zarrow shuffle, the way Bill Malone perform it, is not the best in my opinion, because he use a top strip out, Allan Ackerman thought in Expert at the card table & every move have a lot of tips, you can also improve the Malone Shuffle with Card College book or Private Studies by Marlo or a lot of referneces such as Gay Plants booklet on te Zarrow Shuffle.

Hey, thanks for the advice. I might consider checking out these sources, however, I don't really get that into the move. I only use it occasionally. The way Bill Malone performs it may not be the best of the best, but it definately fools people and I'm not looking for my zarrow to fool magicians, but laypeople which it definately does. I know many people in this Café are into studying a "move" from every source they can get their hands on which is good, but I don't have the money for that and my zarrow has served me well. If I get a chance though, I will check out the other work on this shuffle particularly Gary Plant as I've heard it's the best out there. Thanks again

Oh, I don't know if any of you saw, but there IS one quote on penguin crediting this shuffle:

"Rudy’s touches are brilliant! The Hunter Shuffle’s roots can be traced back to the “Shank Shuffle” that appeared first in print in Herophant#7. The original "Shank Shuffle" had one illustration and one paragraph describing what occurred with NO WAY of making it effective. Rudy Hunter’s handling and subtleties on this DVD make it a valuable contribution to the Magic Fraternity"

Stannmaple, I originally mentioned this "credit" on the other thread... It was put on the site (multiple days after complaints), not on the DVD, to cover their ***.

Hey guys, this is not a zarrow but applies the same principle.

the good point of this shuffle is that the order of the cards is really not altered. the zarrow needs a slip cut before to do this Smile

True, but the Shank Shuffle doesn't have the top card cover. That cover, in my opinion, is what really sells the move and makes it work. I love the Zarrow Shuffle because it does look so clean. Another thing that makes the Zarrow work better in a true gambling situation is that the Slip Cut isn't needed, if you do the shuffle twice. Shuffling twice is pretty much required in all games.
Yes, that is my real name. Yes, I am a real person. No, you probably won't agree with me.
