It's interesting to see the Dan and Dave youtube video on springing the cards.

The first technique they demonstrate shows releasing the cards from the thumb. Then they demonstrate releasing the cards from the fingers. There was a discussion about which is better on the Café back in 2012:
A little later in the video they show the finger release technique.
My preference is to release from the thumb because the audience sees the faces of the cards going by. But I know a lot of people prefer the fingers release.
I don't think the spectators care either way. It's something magicians obsess over more than the lay public does.

Showoff with Cards

Definitely. GREAT course in showoff fancy fluorishes.

I'll second this one, which features good teaching from Ben Salinas. I've posted a detailed review of this DVD here:


Nowadays there's also a lot of good material and videos available for purchase as instant downloads. For example:

- The Virts: some great tutorials (link) - see my review here.
- The School of Cardistry: a great youtube channel (link) and premium videos (link) - see my review here.

I enjoyed the Showoff with Cards DVD.. anything with Ben Salinas. He is a very under-rated cardician and very easy to listen to..
