I believe he uses a Derek Dingle style double from his book "the complete works".
If you are only using a snap double, I suggest you get back to basics before even buying Dingles book. I'm guessing you learnt the snap double after purchasing D.Martinez Ambitious Card Video? If so you will notice that this move needs misdirection, like clicking your right-hand fingers. Now this is fine for the ambitious card but for other routines I suggest something more sublime.
So much to do. So little time.

Greg Wilson teaches both doubles on his tape, "Double Take" and I highly recommend it.

It's Dingle, not Blaine.

I use the Jennings (I think it's his) snap double all the time without misdirection. During what part of the double do you need misdirection?

If the thumb count is done quickly and smoothly, there is no realy need for misdirection, especially if the thumb is away from the spectators. A small movement of the left hand is enough to cover the thumb count in all instances.

Blaine uses the Dingle DL using his middle finger instead of his ring.

Actually it's Krenzel's not Dingle's. I don't think the controversy is a large one, but Krenzel's was published first by Lorayne, and Dingle's latter by Kaufman.
Cheers,

That small movement would be misdirection then Smile.. Not quite as overt as having a dancing bear come on stage with you but misdirection all the same Smile

What, like putting it under the table?!
Why after so many years of refining things like double lift get-readys didn't people just thumb count.
The Snap is the most abused double there is, why? Because a thumb count is easier than a pinky count or push-off.
I guess you are going to have to get caught first before you listen.
The Snap double is not a workhorse sleight, it's a part-time mistress.
So much to do. So little time.

Blaine also uses the block push-off...

Just get a break under two cards and turn them over. Find something that looks natural for you. Look at the way you would turn over one card and then duplicate it with two.

Honestly speaking, if you are going to get a break, I say just do a pinky count double lift.

The nice thing about the push-off double lift is that you don't have to get a break.

It's based on skill, practice and a lot of self-experimenting.

The feeling of the push-off double lift will be different for everyone. Push at different positions, see which feels best, then go for that one.

It's called PushOff Double, you can learn this in detail at Ellusionist.com in CrashCourse2 - Ambitious Card.

Whatever DL Blaine uses, I don't think it looks very good anyway. Learn Vernon's DL and you'll never need to learn another.
Thought: Why does man kill? He kills for food. And not only food: frequently there must be a beverage.

The best and most deceptive double lift is the pinky count DL turnover.

Ever since i mastered the pinky count, i've never used other methods. Smile
