Extreme card flourishes

MagicPeaceLove sez, "The Virts, a trio of skilled cardistes from Singapore, up the ante of ECM (Extreme Card Manipulation) with a beautifully shot & edited short promo showing off their Extreme Card Prowess. The closing set, an unbroken, 25-second take, is a dazzling display of technical virtuosity with a deck of cards."

What's the best deck for card flourishing? (Thanks, @magicpeacelove!)


  1. Like most magicians who can’t do this stuff I am obliged to sneeringly deride it and point out that real audiences don’t give a damn and it actively damages your performance by showing your skill with a deck rather than allowing space for magic. Inside my head though: damn that is cool.

    1. I don’t find it ironic, I find it annoying enough that I’m not going to go any further.  It turned my experience from “that’s cool enough that I’ll actually follow that advertisement” to “fuck you, I’ll take my eyes (and potentially dollars) elsewhere”.

  2. How the hell do these guys find the time to work out AND practice card flourishes?

    I’ll be impressed when the drug tests come back negative.
