I was wondering what version of the DL you guys use. Most of you are veterans so for a beginner like myself what are some I should be practicing early on. I have Darly's Encyclopedia vol 4 and 5 which cover multiple lifts but there are a bunch. What do you guys think?

PS: I understand the DL isn't a trick in itslf nor do I rely on it for all my tricks, but I do know its a common tool.
For those that believe,
No explaination is necessary.
For those who do not,
None will suffice.

The simplest lift and turnover will probably suffice till you find a need for other moves.

Personaly I always use Brother John Hammans version of the DL. Its easy, and smooth, and there is no "get ready". And you are in a wonderful position when you going to turn over the cards again.

For further details see "The Secrets of Brother John Hamman", by Richard Kaufman, page 11.

My favorite is the snap double. No get ready required. You can see it (and others) on Greg Wilson's video "Doubletake". I haven't viewed the tape in quite some time, so I'm not sure who gets the credit for it. Could be Larry Jennings, but perhaps someone who is familiar with it can clear that one up.

I mostly use the Strike Double, but also Vernon's Double, the Crook Double and of course my own (eats humble pie!) from time to time. My own double can be viewed here:

Is it on the Double Take video? I know he does a Nash Knockout Double and also shows the Daley Strike Double, but I don't remember the Snap. Also, the Snap does require a get ready, it is just done with the left thumb. I know you can learn the Snap Double from Daryl on his ACR DVD.

I use the Strike sometimes, which does not require a get ready, but I mainly use Vernon's Push-Off double which does. Vernon's Push-Off looks just like you pushed the card with your left thumb in the center of the pack, like you would if you were actually pushing over one card. It is also very easy to do.

An echo in here? Smile

The wonder of this is not that people begin yet another new thread curious about fellow magi's favorite doubles. Perhaps new posters don't know that the subject has been covered FIFTY FLIPPIN'TIMES. It's that people continue to respond.

Gianni,
to be fair these are mostly new users replying, and the search function on this form is not the best.

and some people just like to repeat themselves. Smile

Because this is a DISCUSSION board. No reason people can't discuss things that have already been discussed. Plus, new people are joining every day that haven't gotten a chance to talk about things that have been covered already.

I prefer the Vernon push off. Looks great when you have it down. You wouldn't find that in a previous thread(not that I've said anything new...but I AM part of the discussion....one of the main points of this kind of board).

Yes, I understood that I was setting myself up when I posted. I usually just move on when I feel that things are repetitive. But this topic exceeds the usual bounds.

I understand that the thread is started by people new to the board. It is ESPECIALLY for these people that they should be guided to the ENORMOUS wealth of info in past threads. And to Otis Day, I understand this is a discussion board. I am here for the discussion. The best course of action, however, seems to me to refer the poster to the old thread and RESURRECT that thread. That way the new poster gets the benefit of past discussion and continues that discussion.

Just turn two over already! Double the exact same way you would with one card.
Who snap single lifts?
Who diving board singles?

There are some cases when it might add to the effect if you do a fancy DL, but in to middle of a trick or whatever, just lift two normaly.

Well, some of us older guys were brought up in the "Snap, Crackle and Pop" school of card handling. (You know, back in the early 70's!)

I think someone made a suggestion on this board one time to make your single lifts look like your doublelifts. Either way, make both look the same. doing DL different that single or vice versa will be noticed by laymen. If it doesn't look suppicious they wont question. Don't run if you're not being chased.

I second to houdini.
it depends on how you do a single lift.

I agree. I couldn't do a double the way I did a single, so I changed the way I flipped over one card. I now flip over one or two just like a strike double lift... I hope that made sense. Smile

That'a the first I've ever heard, or seen of single snap dealing. Is that how you double too?
It would be funny if you did a strike double lift.

I use the hit double, or the one handed double, depending on how I'm feeling.
