Has it really been mastered/attempted by many? I don't have very much knowledge when it comes to cardistry.. It's not really my field. I focus more on sleights than cardistry by far.. But here's as far as I got after probably 30 tries, aha. Looks really messy but you get the concept. Do people attempt it? How many succeed? I've never seen one before. I could just be making myself look dumb and half of the cardistry world could already be doing it.. But like I said, I'm not really in to cardistry so cut me some slack. Of course, the second I tilted my hand, I had to play 52 card pick-up. aha.

Sorry it's not an attatched image.. I was having a lot of trouble getting the file to upload on this site. gyazo is a trusted site though, go ahead and google it if you need some proof. It's just a screenshot sharing software.

In my opinion its not very reliable and theres no grip on the third tier. I tried it a couple times but it didn't turn out to be something practical that I would do.

Yeah.. I had to do it completely flat.. Was pretty irritating, I smoothed it out with my thumb a bit as well. Would love to see someone pull it off though, I always loved the idea of big fans.

I did find a way to do it, but inorder to maintain a firm grip on all the cards the fan would have to be smaller and more condensed. In the end it was the same size as a double fan so it just wasn't worth the extra effort to do it.

Don't take this the wrong way- not new and not worth it!

Of that mysterious instrument, the soul,
And play the prelude of our fate."

I agree with Cap that a triple-fan would not be that great an effect in a routine of exhibition fans.

Here's one variation of the standard double-fan that you might try:
When you divide the deck into two sections, prior to weaving the halves together, turn the smaller half (the one that will be on the top of the double fan) face up and weave it into the face down bottom half. Then when you perform the double fan, fan it first with the face up top half toward the audience. That will get a good reaction because the fan is so big. Then turn the fan so the back of the top half will face the audience. That will present the top half of the fan with the design toward the audience. That's what I do in this silent mp4 video:

(Apologies for the blurry video. It was made back in the days when videos were meant to be viewed in small windows.)

Another tip: I added 10 or 12 extra cards to the fanning deck (in this case the original Zinab deck). Those extra cards make the design a little smoother. Also, when I find a fanning deck I like, I buy them in bulk, the way Cardini did with the Peau Doux deck.

One more tip: I use a short corner card to help me divide the two halves. By riffling to the short corner of the deck, you can stop the riffle right at the short corner. No more guessing about where to divide the two halves.
