I use the Charlier cut. It's quite clean.

Steranko Action Reverse from Steranko On Cards; but you have to be doing tabled riffle shuffles. . .

Mechanical Reverse (Krenzel)
Larreverse (Jennings)
Halfpass
And if it fits the effect, the Brauereverse.

Doesn't it depend on what effect you're doing? Whether it's a packet or full deck effect? Whether you're standing or sitting? Who you're working for and where they are in relation to you? Whether there are people behind you or not? Whether they can see under the deck or not? How good a shape the cards are in? Etc.? Etc.? Etc.?

I use several, as TCR says it depends on the trick and situation. There are a number of neat ones.

Regarding one handed reversals, sure,usually against the leg!

I would say the half pass even though I hate moves that arn't angle friendly.

Either the top card cover reversal or simply reversing to the bottom as the card is returned into the middle.

Is a card selected here, or are we just reversing for its own sake?

The old overhand shuffle reverse still is very effective, and Marlo's "Center Reverse" is the pick if a selection needs to be reversed in the center with no cutting or shuffling.

I must be missing something- what does a Charlier Pass have to do with a reverse of a card?

I agree with Randy here. What's a reversed card without the effect it goes along with?
One trick I really like doing is Bill Kalush's "the Fidgeting card." And like him, I use Marlo's Center Reverse.

Seeing as I don't regularly perform any other effects with reversed cards, that's all I need.

Cheers,

If you let the packets glide against each other as they pass, one card will get carried along for the ride and will be reversed in the center at the completion of the cut.

Not a method I would use myself but I think that is what was meant. Smile

I like Jerry Sadowitz shuffle reverse, it's very clean.

Well it depends on the effect you need for, I always use the Vernon's secret reverse, It is done when you riffle shuffle the cards in the table, is pretty effective, I also perform the Braue's Reversal, and answering to the questions of the one-handed reverse techniques there are a few sleights to do this.

I definitely agree with TCR on this one. spot on.

To name one method I am fond of--

I should first say that I don't like most reversal methods that use a DL. However, I find that DL, followed immediately by a gentle cover pass (with a soft dribble, this is done casually), followed by turning the single over again.

Other method, a bit angly, is to partially side jog the card and do a turnover pass, letting the bottom block kick the card over in the process. I discovered this one day while dinkin' around, but I heard it's old news.

:(

There's card reversal in "ultra cervon" called "Straddle reverse" (I think) that works really well for me...
