I notice theres a lot of females who do XCM.. I was just wondering if you ladies find it hard somtimes to do the cuts..being that most of the time your hands are a lot smaller than the hands of men?

There are?

I have never seen any girls doing XCM. Karen and Jessica do flourishes and other manipulation, but not XCM.

Examples? Links? Pictures? Smile

Eh yeah I don't know any female XCMers...as in, HL probably doesn't have any female XCMers... the card stuff that I do generally wouldn't be qualified as XCM, more like flourishes.

Yeah I thought that I would have a lot of trouble with flourishes because I have small hands (even for a girl), but there's plenty that I can do. It doesn't seem to be that big of a disadvantage. There are still some moves that I can't do at all though, probably because of hand size.

There was one female but she got banned before she signed up. A shame really.

I would say that it's not such a huge deal. there is a lot of stuff I can't do which I sort of attribute to small hand size, but probably the majority of the time it's just a practise issue.

for one handed cuts, a lot are too difficult for me to do because of hand size. I can't do a a thumb cut (which I thought was a reverse charlier, apparently not) because my thumb doesn't span across the breadth of the card. moves like kryptonite, rev erdnase, scissor cuts, I can't do either.

oh and I guess I'm not really an XCMer, but for something like an armspread, I think it's easier for guys because they naturally develop forearms. this probably has more to do with practise but even guys who never work out will develop broader forearms, making it easier to balance the cards.

yes there are many in Europe. The best is Kati from Ulmen. I saw her cradle to grave routine on fire and her flaming moth throw on the metz female kartenmeister video . You will not find female xcmers on this forum.

Where did you find a video of her doing it on fire? or maybe you were just WITH her. I would expect there to be an incredible amount of talent in ulmen. have you ever been there cheats?
also what is a moth throw?

I used to think that you needed freakishly large hands for the revolution erdnase, but you really don't. If you can do Tudor's OHR properly, it should be possible to do a RevE with some practice.

Try RevE from hell to start, that's easier.

Or start practising Erdnase Shift, to learn the grip.

I can do Rev. E in both hands now, not as well in ly left hand though.

I got it on the internet. they germans and austrians use different words than devo uses. I think devo did that on purpose so others would not find it. but if you know the right words it is out there and easy.

Jeez, all threads going into discussion about De'vo....

Is De'vo female?
Big hands for being a girl, but off course,
he yet havent taken his hood off.

And many people think he had womanlike hands. Smile

This thread is about Female XCM: ers and
I suppose De'vo is not a woman so..

...Back to topic...

This is about how to find the videos of the girls. Will not give more clues than this to non xcmers.
